Singapore’s One Global Property Services Launches New Proptech Offering, One Global Labs
After four years of shaking up the real estate scene in Asia, One Global Property Services revolutionises the industry with its new interactive research technology that will redefine the buying experience.
Singapore, September 30, 2021 – One Global Property Services (OGPS) – the international real estate agency founded by James Puddle – has grown rapidly since its inception over four years ago. Headquartered in Singapore, OGPS has embarked on a global expansion with new offices in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Cape Town, and London, as well as a team of professionals that’s grown to over 50.
Founder and CEO James Puddle said: “The past two years have seen a significant number of challenges that we have had to navigate because of COVID-19. Our ability to diversify our market and services has enabled us to strengthen the foundations of the company and achieve a strong level of growth.
“We have worked hard towards creating a number of different verticals across the One Global group of companies to cater to all of our client’s property-related needs. One of these verticals is One Global Labs.”
One Global Labs
OGPS’s latest offering, One Global Labs, provides the agency with a research and PropTech division that’s planning to turn the industry on its head. With cutting-edge technology, agents and buyers alike will have access to a data hub with the latest property reports, videos, and local market information.
"One Global Labs' first objective is to provide prospective buyers with full transparency and authoritative insights for them to make more informed decisions when it comes to investing in property. One Global Labs has also the ambition of developing powerful new tools based on innovative technologies, machine learning and artificial intelligence to assist teams, partners, and clients and build a streamlined ecosystem adding value throughout the property ownership journey. Finally, One Global Labs will provide the backbone to drive change and transform the Group into a data-driven organization."
Eli McGeever, Director of Research & Technology Innovation at One Global Labs said: “What really sets us apart is our focus on APAC buyers who may not be too familiar with a specific area where they’re looking to invest.
“Through an interactive online experience, we provide the necessary tools and data that goes above and beyond your standard market price analysis,” added Eli.
Buyers will have access to information on:
• Average prices
• Property transactions
• Market trends
• Updates on the rental market
• Information on ratings of local schools,
• What’s in and around the neighbourhood such as offices, shops, and parks.
• Local government news
• What’s being planned for the future
• Projected population growth
This information is provided to clients in two different formats. First, they’ll have access to comprehensive market reports. These will cover the property market, growth and infrastructure of the city, as well as why people find it attractive to live there – schools, job opportunities, lifestyle, etc. Second, they’ll be able to access this information through an interactive user experience online. They can expect frequently updated charts and tables as well as videos providing you with the latest information, whether they’re at home on your computer or on the go on their mobile device.
Sales teams will also have access to a new analysis tool to assist buyers with their research. They’ll be able to guide them through the costs and returns digitally, as well as provide them with the latest detailed information on the area they’re looking to invest in. This information can then be formatted into a report and sent to them via email.
One Global Labs will focus on prime UK markets first before the inclusion of major Australian cities early next year.
Now, when investors are purchasing an investment property in the UK, such as Digbeth One 2 in Birmingham or The Triangle in Ashford, they’ll be able to make even more qualified decisions.

Next level offerings
One Global Property Services has set itself apart from the competition by offering strategic partnerships that put the investor first. As an exclusive partner of both Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (LeadingRE) – a by-invitation-only network of residential brokerages in 70 countries – and its luxury marketing division Luxury Portfolio International, their global reach is extensive. This latest partnership with St. James’s Place will see OGPS provide the wealth management organisation with best-in-class residential projects for their clients and end-to-end property investment management.
“While we are primarily a UK real estate agency, our growth strategy has always been to provide our clients and consumers with a holistic “one-stop-shop” service.
“This has been made possible by the breadth of our team and their high level of international experience,” James adds.
