We are a break away from Freer Properties to provide quality properties for rent and sale in Cambodia from rockstar real estate agents.
Our values remain – quality, honesty and integrity.
Our logo represents Modernity, Precision and Warmth as points of difference to separate us from the pack.
With growing numbers of agencies, what are your strategies to compete?
We’re not able to compete with multi-national agencies yet, but we do keenly watch our peers. We practise Quality Assurance and not profit alone which is a sustainable business practice. Good governance and eco-friendly strategies are two of our other core values. The numerous sub-standard brokers will ultimately be weeded out as the industry matures. It makes sense to work with than against other good companies to ensure continued quality.
Why should property buyers or renters seek services from Abode?
We focus on quality – listings, clients, information, photographs, fair and professional documentation – backed up with personalised service.
Why does Abode focus on old colonial buildings?
Phnom Penh is one of the most delightful colonial cities in the world. Its wide tree-lined avenues, pretty gardens and stately homes made it ‘the Pearl of Asia’ in the 1920’s. It is an attractive style that separates Phnom Penh from many other cities. They are well-built, respect the tropics and offer unique urban spaces.
From a micro (building) level to macro (city) level, Colonial buildings are to be cherished and preserved. With the old buildings gone, Phnom Penh will become a glass and concrete jungle, indistinguishable from other urban centres. Abode proudly associates itself with the preservation of such beauty.
Are there any services Abode is planning to announce?
Abode has shifted focus to rentals and sales only to apply our resources strategically. We will continue to promote quality properties across Phnom Penh and beyond. Our focus was mainly on Daun Penh, but we now incorporate wider Phnom Penh and the provinces.

We’re often asked whether Cambodia is a good place to retire. Although it’s not impossible to categorically say which is BEST (due to individual bias), most accepted indices rate Cambodia in the top ten.
1953 marked Cambodia’s independence from France. Formal land records then were relatively common in cities, but in rural areas informal systems were used. This is a quick history of land tenure since then.
