Dr. Theresa Fok

FMBA, C.Mgr, D.Mgt.
Founder & Managing Director
Dr. Theresa Fok is a property investment expert with entrepreneurial vision and over two decades of extensive experience in real estate investment and property management across the Asia Pacific.

Educated in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, Theresa established her career as a property investor in Singapore, 1989, before she returned to Hong Kong and founded Jade Land Properties in 1993. She is widely known in the market as one of the pioneers in the mid-1990s to realise the concept of upscaling otherwise dated and aesthetically unappealing apartments to chic homes in the traditionally prestigious Mid-Levels district in Hong Kong – a “win-win” accretive property investment approach that enhances comfort for the tenant and the overall value of the property for the owner.

With Theresa at the helm, Jade Land Properties has grown to be a cross-national and multi-disciplinary firm, building lasting networks with buyers, sellers, property developers and the local real estate community.

A greater milestone was her introduction of the practice of marketing overseas developments in Hong Kong. In 1995, the visionary embarked on localised marketing of residential developments in Greater Vancouver, Canada, in anticipation of the colonial handover of Hong Kong and the Asian financial crisis in 1997. The year of 2016 marked the company’s grand foray into the emerging economy of Malaysia, sparking public interest as well as industry-wide recognition. Over the years, Jade Land Properties has secured the position as a purveyor of overseas properties with an emphasis on developing clients’ global real estate investment portfolios.

Theresa has garnered numerous awards and accolades throughout her career

This year, she was conferred with the following titles:

  • An Honorary Doctorate of Management from Lincoln University
  • A Fellow and Chartered Manager from the Canadian Chartered Institute of BusinessAdministration
  • The “Asian Outstanding Leadership Award for Women” from the Asian College of Knowledge Management
  • “Entrepreneur of the Year” from Capital Weekly

  • Million Dollar Round Table Member in 2019
