My story

Every day as a child, my grandmother would ask me to run up and down the corridors of our neighborhood estate! And after each session she would always place two $0.50 coins in my palm.

It was a very odd request, but I would never complain because as children, we love to be encouraged to have fun!

Grandma eventually shared with me that there was a lot of tension in our neighborhood back then. And she felt that I naturally carried an infectious joy and excitement.

Asking me to run and have fun was her way of spreading this joy to our neighborhood.

I joined real estate in 2008, and I carried this joy to my business. My career took off fast as I loved meeting new people and getting them excited about their property journey.

I soon began to consistently achieve Annual Top Achiever’s awards as I rose within the ranks of my company.

Without realizing, this joy for others began to be replaced by wealth and self-importance.

In my thirties, grandma would ask me to run along the corridors for old times sake.

I got upset at her request. Doing this was beneath me. Two $0.50 coins to waste my time? Certainly not!

This attitude showed in my business where I became more focused on the transaction, instead of the client.

This resulted in the darkest moment of my career. Despite successfully selling my clients’ homes, not many wanted to keep in touch after.

Being driven by money and self-importance soon became a really lonely journey.

The turning point came when grandma passed away. As my family stood around the casket at the wake, I was reminded how this lady invested in my ability to bring joy to others, two $0.50 coins at a time.

This was when I realized I had to bring back the heart into this business. Real estate is a high touch business that is so personal to homeowners.

I believe that every homeowner should never have to lose hope at any point in their property journey, and be able to achieve their goals with proper strategic planning.

One such homeowner was Madison Chua, who owned an #04-04 unit at Fairmont Condominum. Many agents tried marketing his unit for 6 months, but failed. In fact, he got so desperately that he even tried to sell it himself!

When he eventually engaged me, we came up with a plan together, and I showed him a different perspective on how his unit could be marketed.

The unit was sold within 2 weeks!

The joy and sense of relief he had upon the closing of the sale looked very familiar. And I realized it was similar to that of my neighbours as I ran up and down the corridors.

That was when I realized my passion was re-ignited and now my real estate business has greater meaningful as I invest in the lives of my clients.
