I'm in Tokyo

Ohaiyougozaimasu!!! Hello Tokyo! This is one of the place that I don't think I can be in tho growing up with Doraemon and Ultraman. Off from the bucket list!

There is small hiccup. Husband has a problem with his visa and not allowed to board so I'm here by myself.

Arrived at 11pm and took Limosine Bus to Shinjuku Station. It took about 45 minits via highway and the city so quite from Haneda Airport.  I walked to our hotel for 20 minit in rain while lugging our 20kg (ok,15kg) luggage in the rain! (Tickets to Shinjuku Washington Hotel finito). It was an experience and I have no problem with rain. Always love rainy night. Tapi sebab menarik beg tu...

Anyway, I thot our room will be tiny and comel like the movie but it exceed expectations.  Or maybe because I'm alone it feel cozy and oh-so-comfortable.  See how tonite when he is here.

It is 9.30 and I'm ready for my walkabout! Excited!

Lari dari jerebu

Syukur esok akan ke Kuching. Dapat juga lari daripada jerebu yang sudah mula terasa. Tekak sudah pedih, hidung sudah berbau, langit sudah kelabu dan hujan lama tidak membasahi bumi.

I am Always Working

I refuse to accept that for Real Estate Negotiator (ren), you are working only when you are showing houses to potential buyer or meeting new owner. No. It is more than that.

There are five cycles as ren:-

1. Prospecting
2. Seller
3. Buyer
4. Viewing
5. Closing


Prospecting

There are so many way to do this. You may see me looking at my phone constantly but do you know I am blasting sms/WhatsApp/e-mail to my potential clients. I send season greetings cards and also Thank you cards. Driving around housing estates and talking to security guards. A day out can be a work day if you know where to do prospecting. Seriously!

Seller

Your seller is the supplier to your stock (listing) to sell. He can be anyone. Your ex-boss, your ex, your sister, brother etc etc. Keeping in touch is also way of maintaining good relationship with your potential seller. 

Or, you can network with your colleagues. Easy peasy

Buyer

Easy to come by. Market your list and subsequently potential will come along and be your buyer. Again, network with your colleagues. They might have a buyer. 

Viewing

This is the fun part. Let the potential buyer see the unit. Let them touch it, feel it, visualising it. 50% chance of closing is in your hands.

Closing

This is hard for me. I do not have mojo to persuade and charm people with words. Always I let the house sell by itself. Off course I will do my best ensuring the property is suitable with potential buyer but I don't believe in forcing people to put down payment like some ren. 


So, when people tell me that I have an easy job I just my eyebrows. I'm always working.  Unlike you, you can clock out and not answer calls from your office.


Hot day but when you have to hand a signboard, you got to go!

Then you go home prepare a good meal!

Singapore's Charm

Our southern neighbour is not really my holiday destination. It is just like Kuala Lumpur, a big city and offering what a city can offer - shopping malls. Somemore Singapore is humid and stuffy and I also think it is an expensive holiday destination. Unless of course if you are visiting with a mission and we do have one.

The trip was planned by our friends and surprisingly it was same date as our trip last year. Non of us realise it until Immigration Officer stamped our passport! 

However, this time I'm a bit disappointed because I wish to go via train. Unfortunately the tickets sold out. Dah lama berangan nak naik keretapi & singgap Kluang for their kaya toast. 


Stesen Keretapi Kuala Lmpur dated 8.06.14 
DAY 1

You will agree that Singapore is a clean and safe city. Not once Ziela or I have to worry about snatch thief or Mat Rempit. Lunch at Killiney Road, Warung M. Nasir a nasi padang restaurant and walk to our hotel at Orchard Road. 


It was delicious! My fav would be their chicken cooked with santan and sweet tauchu. A bit like combination of masak lemak and rendang
Dinner was sup tulang merah. Not really a fan so it was ok-ok aje. But the trip to Mustaffa has charmed me to like Singapore even more. It is like Mydin but better selections and quality brand. You can get the latest Corelle, Vision, and Tefal over there. Oh my inner Nigella dance with joy. The place is so huge! Didn't buy anything tho

Before that we stop at Marina Bay and I got myself a travel book by Louis Vuitton! 


Best Sales Assistance ever! Unpretentious, polite and passionate about the brand! You ask anything about LV and he has the answer  
 

Travel, fashion and photography! I could spend days in this section!  

DAY 2

Nothing special. Just walkabout while wait for flight. But our lunch is worth mentioning. We went to Badoque Cafe at Beduk Road. Portion is big and price is reasonable.   
The travel buddies went to airport straightaway but my husband and I stay for a movie session. That is another Singapore's charm btw, watching movie uncensored. 

These are my Singapore's charm. Can't stay too long but can't be too short.

Konvensyen HAVOC Hartanah CariRumah.com.my

Sebagai real estate negotiator kenalah sentiasa up to date perkembangan terbaru. Jangan malu dan malas mencari ilmu. Saya sedar saya tak boleh hanya berharap bacaan online sahaja. Sekarang semakin mudah kerana ramai taiko dan guru yang willing to share their knowledge membuatkan semakin mudah untuk berkongsi dan mendengar.  Antara nak atau tidak.

Sambil itu, dapat juga saya bersosial dengan kawan-kawan baru dan bertemu bakal clients, sama ada membeli atau penjual.  Kiranya ini part of marketing strategi juga. 

Pada 7.6.14 (Sabtu) saya berpeluang untuk ke Konvensyen Havoc Hartanah bertempat di Kompleks Karangkraf. Sangat teruja memandangkan saya terlepas peluang untuk hadir ke Konvensyen Pejuang Hartanah. Apa yang saya boleh saya katakan ialah Malaysia perlukan lebih lagi majlis sebegini. Tiket masuk hanyalah RM50 dan sambutan sangat bagus. Full house!

Speaker yang ada juga sangat hebat seperti Tuan Azizi Ali, Encik Faizul Ridzwan, Mr. Ho Chin Soon, Mr. Edwin Wee, Mr. Ersnest Towlie, dan Encik Safuan Rahman. 

   

Jadi for RM50 and you get all of these gentlemen, I say it is RM50 well spent. Faizul was talking about choosing location, Ho Chin Soon tackling subject of analysing hot-spots and many more. 

I really look forward for another Konvensyen and hopefully to meet as many people as I can. 

Here some photos:

Cuaca Panas....

Memang lah kaki complaint kan....cuaca panas terus malas nak drive around cari listing. Harap buat farming dari rumah sahaja. Sambil mengadap PC, browse sana-sini. Untung-untung dapatlah quality listings. 

Sekarang ni temperature lebih kurang 30 to 32 degrees. Berpeluh tau. Dah tak pakai lagi baju ada inner atau tudung hitam. Mekap pun dah tak tebal, takut jerawat naik. Banyak ek cerewet orang perempuan ni >.<

Tapi dalam cuaca panas ni pun,banyak juga calls beri good respond kepada signboard yang tergantung. Tertanya juga adakah mereka tak terganggu dengan cuaca panas berpusing cari rumah? Untuk itu saya berterima kasih dan bersyukur masih dapat juga meniaga. 

Antara yang best bekerja sendiri ni beginilah. Dapat urus & atur masa sendiri mengikut kehendak keadaan.
