A pioneering force, President Director of Asiana Group makes her mark as she breaks barriers at the 9th PropertyGuru Indonesia Property Awards 2023
As the PropertyGuru Indonesia Property Awards celebrates its ninth year of honouring exceptional developers at The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place on the 15th of September, it is with great pride that we will be granting the prestigious title of Indonesia Real Estate Personality of the Year for 2023 to none other than Ibu Loemongga Haoemasan, the President Director of Asiana Group. This honour marks a historic moment as Ibu Loemongga becomes the first female recipient of this accolade in the history of the PropertyGuru Indonesia Property Awards programme.
Our recipient this year embodies the essence of a true multihyphenate, and her journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. While many may remember her as a renowned model and television personality from the 1990s, today she shines brightly in a different sphere as the driving force behind some of Indonesia’s most prominent real estate projects.
As the President Director of Asiana Group, Loemongga has overseen the development of numerous residential landed projects and iconic high-rise developments, including Senopati Suites 1, 2, and 3, Nirvana Residence in Jakarta, Biu Biu in Jimbaran, Bali, and the highly anticipated TwoSenopati in SCBD, Jakarta.
A finance graduate from Boston College in Massachusetts, Loemongga’s career took a significant turn when she transitioned from the world of banking with ING Barings to the dynamic realm of property development. Her groundbreaking shift in career trajectory did not go unnoticed; she was recognised as one of the “Most Inspiring Women” by Forbes Indonesia and frequently invited as a speaker at industry events, including the PropertyGuru Asia Real Estate Summit 2022, where she was honoured among the leading Power Women of the industry.
Her journey in the industry began with interactions with real estate developers during her banking days, fostering her interest in the industry. This passion eventually led to the establishment of Asiana Group and the creation of award-winning projects that have redefined Indonesia’s real estate landscape.
Loemongga’s story is not only one of professional success but also a source of inspiration for women across Indonesia. Her remarkable journey empowers others to pursue their passions and resilience in the business world. Her guiding principles of confidence, hard work, and kindness have proven to be the keys to success, whether in male-dominated or female-dominated industries.
In addition to her outstanding contributions to the real estate sector, Loemongga is deeply involved in social organisations, including The National Crafts Council (DEKRANAS) and Warisan Budaya Indonesia (Indonesian Cultural Heritage). These organisations reflect her commitment to preserving and promoting Indonesia’s cultural heritage and supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
Loemongga’s unique perspective as a female leader in a predominantly male-dominated industry has brought a fresh outlook to property development. Her attention to detail and focus on creating comfortable living spaces have set her apart as an undisputed industry leader.
With a steadfast belief in the potential of the Indonesian real estate market, Loemongga remains optimistic about the promising returns that wise investments in the property sector can offer.
Looking ahead, Loemongga Haoemasan is committed to shaping the trajectory of Indonesia’s property market, fostering an environment where positive transformation becomes a reality for countless Indonesians. The recognition of the 2023 Real Estate Personality of the Year not only celebrates her individual accomplishments, but also the collective efforts of her Asiana team and dedicated business partners who share her unwavering commitment to the Indonesian property sector.
