Hey Gillian,

I agree with what you said. The right team is important. I'm shopping around for a right team and company to join. So what's your advice on picking the right team?

I start to meet and get calls from people from all walks of life since my decision to join this line as a property agent.

Sometimes I get scolded from people for nothing (maybe due to my clients' higher or lower in their price expectation).

How to handle such rude callers or customers ? Hope some experienced agents can help a rookie like me. Thanks in advance.

don't take their scoldings or even insults to heart. my tip: just focus on closing deals. it's tempting for idealistic agents to want to be frank and open in their dealings, but after a while, you'll realize it actually doesn't matter. learn from lawyers and say what you need to say to close the deal. good luck.

Dear Eat Grass,
Do understand our nature of the business. Its a people business. My tip: People get rude and scold because of the reaction and words we use on them. Reflect and understand how to handle them well. Focus with your heart filled with passion and joy to help them. Managed their expectations well. You can pick up books regarding "words to use" or you can hear how your manager speaks on the phone. Good luck!!

Showroom agents and HDB agents are the ones doing well now.

Default property prices

Why are property prices still so high despite the downturn in the economy? I've been hearing from agents that new developments are selling like hot cakes and the real estate is heating up. As a potential buyer, I have been searching around for reasonable property, but developers and owners have a high opinion of their property. As a consequence, I'm still looking...

Default Question

Hey good day everyone!

Based on your experience/observations, is it possible to work as a full-time real estate agent in Singapore & at the same time run a small business on the side?

Looking forward to some advice from all the experienced realtors. Cheers!

Does property agent need to contribute to cpf?

Anyway I assume you guys here are most probably from some big well known companies such like era, propnex, hsr and so on, right? Anyone here from some ulu, not so famous company? I just signed up a "lesson" with a quite unknown real estate company, it's cheaper than other big companies which charged about $700, this one cost me less than half the amount. The woman told me that they have been in this industry for 18 years. But my first impression when I entered their office for an interview was like, "Wtf! That's their main office?" I can't believe a company of 18 years would be using a small room with minimal resources as their office, so much unlike what I have been to places such as DWG and ERA where they are a lot bigger, more professional looking and with a lot of staff or associates whatever you call them, around the place. That one I went to only had like some uncles and aunties using the pc and making phonecalls. Sweat! So should I trust them? Is there anyone here who is also not from some big name companies?
