I have been a full time real estate agent since 2008. Before this, I was in direct sales for a period of approximately 5-6 years after I left the army.
Since my direct selling days, I've learned a lot both in selling products and managing people. It carried on to my real estate career to date.
Since I started full time in 2008, I went straight into the private condominium sales in the mass market areas. In 2009, I ventured into the higher end areas, most notedly in areas like Marina, Sentosa, district 9 and 10. Later on, when the residential prices hit its peak, and when my investors went on to invest in the commercial and industrial properties, I moved on with them. Along the way, there were many referrals from clients and friends from various segments, including the HDB flats, and rental units. Today, due to the vast exposure, I've gained a lot of knowledge in many segments. Leading a team of agents had also helped me add on to the knowledge I had already accumulated myself; Solving their issues allow me a deeper knowledge in many areas.
I have made many good friends since I had came into this trade. Because of this network, I could learn from many successful people and apply to my own businesses. I am proud to say that I am also an investor myself.
Though I was doing relatively well in my previous career, I am truly thankful that I had joined real estate. Otherwise, I might still not have the know how of what to do with my hard earned money.
Part of my goal now is to grow my investment portfolio as well as finding like minded associates to work together.
We should never be in real estate all the time growing our only own businesses. We should also aspire to grow others so many more can be blessed.

He had a knack for nurturing talent and leading people.
From the age of 23 to 26, Mr Lawrence Teo, 35, built a successful team of 200 sales agents for a consumables products company.
Still, Mr Teo, now an associate division director of PropNex, wanted a career in the real estate industry.
He said: “Since I was young, I had known that a career in real estate was the way to go for me. But I lacked the capital and resources to start a team of my own when I graduated from school.”
At the age of 27, Mr Teo left the consumables industry to join Powerful Negotiators, PropNex’s largest group of agents. He had heard about the group’s track record in creating some of the highest-performing teams in real estate.
“I had researched about Powerful Negotiators’ system for some time back then. I felt that they had the elements that every successful business should have. Their culture of sharing and work ethics were also what attracted me to join them,” recalled Mr Teo.
Today, Mr Teo is a team leader under Powerful Negotiators. He cites the group’s training system as the main reason for his achievement.
He said: “I learnt from the best. They have taught me how to develop my skills further as a leader and mentor.”
Mr Teo passion to help others has seen grooming some of the top producers in real estate. Because of his coaching, members on his team who were previously part-timers have now become successful full-timers the real estate industry.
He said: “My greatest reward is when I see my associates growing and develop to their fullest potential. For me, that is the hallmark of every successful leader.”
Never stop learning and focus on developing the people around you.
Mr Lawrence Teo, Associate Group District director
Recipient of the Top 5 Division Director
