I have known Chandaka and Acquest for over five years. His advice and insights have been inviolable when making my real estate investment decisions. Chandaka has deep insights into the Sri Lankan Real Estate market and his advice and services has been exceptionally customer oriented and always strategic. I have no hesitation in recommending Chandaka and Acquest for anyone interested in real estate investment in Sri Lanka.
Chief Information Officer, Virtusa
I am very happy to recommend Acquest. They have been fantastic in their support for the full life cycle of my property purchase and maintenance in Sri Lanka. I first used them in 2009 to acquire a flat. They made sure the process was smooth and flawless. They helped with the fit-out work. Over the years their maintenance department has done a great job keeping the apartment operating well.
Head of Asia Pacific Banking, Capital Markets and Advisory, Citigroup
Acquest has been working with me on my personal real estate portfolio for approximately eight years. Their advice on market trends has been insightful and helped me make certain strategic decisions. I continue to work closely with Acquest and have every confidence in their input and that they will work in my best interest. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Acquest.
Ex Deputy Chairman of John Keels Holdings PLC
In my 25 years of active real estate investing, few companies have demonstrated the same level of professionalism as Acquest. I purchased an executive property through them in 2008 and they managed it efficiently until 2014. Their level of service and responsiveness has been excellent. I will continue to work with Acquest as I see them as a reliable partner in Sri Lankan real estate.

Throughout my experience, the Acquest team has acted with honesty and integrity - a rare commodity among real estate agents in Colombo. The team was able to advise me well on market trends, pricing and the quality of potential buyers. They ultimately delivered results for me. I would recommend the services of Acquest to any other prospective client, whether it is for an individual property or a larger scale development.
Chairman of Colombo Stock Exchange, ex Managing Director and Group Chief Operating Officer for Credit Suisse Asia Pacific
Acquest, especially Chandaka, did an exceptional job in selling a large residential property in Colombo. Chandaka was always available to provide helpful market insight, valuable advice on potential buyers and the structuring of a transaction, and skillful and creative negotiation of the sale. I always felt that Acquest operated at the highest level of integrity and was proactive in finding a solution. I am very happy to recommend them.
Acquest has delivered exceptional services over the last ten years. The Acquest team brings an intimate understanding of the market and has access to the best clients in Colombo with a unique trait of doing what is best for their clients - even at short-term cost to their business. We have found Acquest to be competent, diligent, professional and above all bringing a rare integrity to this business.
We have used the services of Chandaka and his company, Acquest, since we began investing in Real Estate in Sri Lanka. We have developed a close relationship over that time and believe Chandaka to be highly knowledgeable, trustworthy and proactive in his real estate dealings with ourselves and his team at Acquest to provide a consistently high level of service in managing and leasing our property portfolio in Colombo.
Fund Manager (New York)
I have worked with Chandaka and the Acquest Team for over 10 years on multiple transactions. Their ability to accurately predict trends and provide advice based on data and experience has been impressive. Looking after my interests has always been their priority. The professionalism, integrity and value that Chandaka and the team have demonstrated have resulted in a trusted adviser relationship that I cherish.
Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director of Virtusa
I take pleasure in recommending Acquest as a full-service real estate agency. They are easily the most professionally managed real estate company in Sri Lanka, possessing the best selection of properties in the country. My best wishes to Chandaka and the team as they innovate new standards & change the local real estate landscape in their journey to transform a very old and traditional business sector in Sri Lanka.
