Cheryl Aw prides herself in being able to think differently from her peers. Taking the unorthodox approach of not continuing her studies upon graduation from Ngee Ann Polytechnic, she chose the path of being a realtor at the tender age of 20 because she understood the essence of investing young.
Armed with both a diploma in Real Estate Business and Bachelors of Science in Business Management - she plunged right back into the real estate industry upon graduation.
2014 was a year that she will fondly remember - it is the year when she completed her tertiary education and also, the year that she made her first foray into the world of property investment - a unit in DUO Residences (Bugis, District 7). The property has since been leased out at a very attractive rental yield of between 3.2% and 3.8%. The strategic location attracts a steady stream of tenant flow and the apartment has never been unoccupied since its TOP obtained back in 2017.
Growing up independent, Cheryl moved out from her parents’ place when she was 22 and currently has her own 3-bedroom apartment in the Tanglin area. She absolutely loves the space, the tranquillity, the neighbourhood and especially the great mix of upscale and local amenities. She believes that most Singaporeans should be able to find an abode that they can all call home comfortably; without having to settle.
Does that mean she was brought up with a silver spoon by well-to-do parents? Actually, no. Growing up, her family lived in a very comfortable HDB flat like many others. But one thing stood out for her - the belief in the long-term value of tangible real estate. And if possible, doing it as early as possible. This led to her starting the investment journey way ahead of most of her peers with consistent discipline and determination to succeed in her endeavors.
The private properties in her portfolio were selected and chosen to fit the needs and wants for herself and the family. Remember, there is no one-size-fits-all formula for every aspiring home owner. With her patience, tenacity coupled with over 9 years of professional and personal experience in the real estate market, Cheryl believes she will be able to help you achieve your goals and dreams!
