Hi. Welcome to The Property Pulse. My name is Cheryl Aw.
I am a Singaporean realtor who is simply passionate about real estate.
How passionate? I studied Real Estate Business in polytechnic just so I could understand more about the Singapore property market.
Instead of continuing my studies, I became a property agent instead – much to the dismay of my parents. However, to me, it was time to convert theory into actual hands-on knowledge.
In fact, I was doing quite well in real estate for 2 years after poly.
But I took a break to continue my studies in SMU – just to satisfy my parents.
Now with both a diploma in Real Estate and degree in Business – I continued with my real estate business as a property agent.
I made my own foray into property investment myself – when I bought a unit at Duo Residences. It is currently being rented out.
I also have moved out from my parents’ place and currently staying in my own unit at The Crest.
Does it mean I was brought up on a silver spoon by well-to-do parents?
Actually no. Growing up, my family lived in a HDB flat. But for me, I sincerely believe in the value of property investment.
Both these private properties are a result of my own work as a property agent. It is also because of my own deep belief in the long-term value of Singapore properties.
(But I credit my parents for giving me a good head on my shoulders and allowing me to make mistakes.)
Learn to Manage Your Money & Protect Your Financial Future
What I learnt academically and from my own daily experiences – I simply applied to my own property investment portfolio. It also helps that I have about 6 years’ full-time experience as a property agent.
- Keen to know more on what it takes to succeed in property investing?
- Concerned about the various risks and pitfalls of buying the wrong property?
- Can buying a private property in Singapore provide financial protection for your future?
I had figured out how to grow a multiple property portfolio ever since I was a final-year student in university.
I bought my first private property at age 25 and the second one at age 28.
The gap between assumptions and reality – is a willingness to explore, learn and find out.
Interested? I will share how you can do it too.
