Pesta Perdana 13

I know this is late but I am in the middle of handing over my real estate matters to my trusted partners as I go for about 1-2 months of maternity leave. In shaa Allah.
You all who got to enjoy 4 months diam k! Hmmmmppphhhhhh!
Also liasing everyday with my pearl girls at Pearlista who has been doing such an awesome job holding the fort.... Thank you all.
And dealing with Braxton Hicks and swollen fingers and toes....

But this entry must be up because it means alot to my daughter.

Thank you everybody for flooding our social media platforms with all the congratulatory messages.
Nyla is very fortunate to have such lovely aunties and uncles who shared her joy that night. Alhamdullilah.

The win was of course very much hoped for but an unexpected one, most definitely.
I had a mommy whisper to me, "No offence ya! But I thought one of the boys would grab this." 

She was right.
I get her.
I shared the same sentiments too. Totally.

Even Papa J it seems.
Before Pesta Perdana 13 went live, he was preparing Nyla... the kind like "if you don't win, you're still my number one kinda of thing.'
Don't mind the last sentence. Biased sikit. Kata Atok dia la kan. And don't ask me about the trophy picture he attached. Entah whose one pon.

Nyla was behaving like a star struck fan that night.
My phone, in her hands and she took as many selfies as she could with whoever she could.

Must thank Haryani for urging me to let Nyla audition for the "Ingat Tak Mak' role.

A beautiful night most definitely.
Very memorable for not only Nyla but for me and E as well.
Bohong la if I say we were not over the moon.

Thanks Bro Faiz for this picture.

Entah apa la dia cakap.
But anything from the heart is always safe la ah.
I felt that her speech though short was very heartfelt.

Glad that she thanked DV Studio because they were really very accomodating to her school schedule. Thanks guys for the opportunity.

Wanna thank Sis Shahida Sarhid from Berita Harian for the feature too!

And also to Mediacorp Suria for a great night and this lovely photo!

The gloves taklehhhhhh angs.

Nyla's school also got to know about it and Mdm Fadilah whatsapped me and kindly asked if it's ok to announce this win to the school during the morning assembly.
Me: You want babe?
Nyla: Ya can also!

Ok done.
So here she is with her principal Mrs May Wong-Tan taken just this morning.
Lovely to have her school recognise and embrace their pupil's talent!

Oh how can I not thank Tina (make up) and Sufyaa (outfit)
Thank you beautiful ladies for making my girl feel like a star that night!
Past midnight also didn't wanna remove the make up and change into her pyjamas!

You alls.....thank you for the love. Very touching mouching ah.

Once again, congratulations Nyla.
We love you very much darling.

The moment I joined Propnex Legacy Solutions, my mentor, Gaz, sat me down to analyse and revisit my current listings.
That week, E was on leave and it was extremely nice to have my husband listen and giving his precious input in the discussion.
Him being in the teaching profession, this is really a luxury for me.

Gaz's first sentence to me was: "Let's not be typical passive agents. Be pro active."

I rubbed my tummy.  
Step kesian mode la. 
Like mintak simpati gitu.

We had a good laugh.

Yes,  I'm in the final trimester of the pregnancy.
So far Alhamdullilah.
Only that when my mom calls and I'm out at work, I won't answer because she will nag at me.
She loves it when I pick up her calls and tells her, "Kin tengah baring!"
I feel her.

But she really has nothing to worry about because I am not pushing myself at all.

In fact with the transfer to Propnex, I am so raring to make a difference by learning as much as I can first.
Every bits of new information I get (and currently I'm getting aplenty with the training sessions!!), I feel excited for my clients.

Everytime this Gaz opens his mouth, I will be like,"Am so sharing this information to my clients."

Plenty of people came up to me and questioned my decision to leave ERA.
Now, it  took me a few months to decide on the move to Propnex.
Proper and thorough planning was made.

I wasn't growing anymore guys.

Physically, je. LOL.

But intellectually, I was in my zone doing the presentations, viewings, attending HDB appointments... It is like a routine. Of course it is a good routine but, I need to grow.

And I felt like I needed a mentor with a wealth of knowledge in this make me unlearn and relearn again.
To help me figure out what I need to understand about the market, what skills I need to acquire, and  most importantly, how to apply my freshly acquired knowledge in my practices.

Yeap I need to hone my skills and prepare myself for the whatever market situation, be it slow or good.

Honestly, with regards to handling HDB transactions, I am confident, alhamdullilah.

And just this week, I have new listings for sale which I have yet to update on Property Guru.
EM at Woodlands...and a 3rm at Farrer Park!

One of my goals is to be an all rounder agent with desire to not only polish up my current HDB skills but I'd love to strike the private property market... new launches.... commercial properties etc.

And I needed a mentor who is not only handling those type of transactions but most importantly, I was looking for someone who can not only sit down with me and tell me to do this do that BUT someone who will walk the talk with me.

And this person is all that.
That week when I was analysing my current listings, I asked him if he would follow me to one of the listings I would like to revisit.

He did and I had such an educational time watching him conduct the presentation addressing these issues to my clients.

1) how a sentiment driven property market reacts to price corrections.
2) identification of immediate projects that are immediate competitors to this property.
3) identifying the likely demographic of the potential buyer.
4) visiting key strengths of the property and managing its weaknesses.
5) evaluate the compelling desire for the client to make the move while facing such a market situation.

This is what I'm talking about. I am so grateful to my clients for giving me the opportunity to revisit their unit and update them in greater depth. To leave them that night with such a clearer picture was really rewarding.
Thanks Gaz!
 Glad to be under your wing!
Thanks bro Saat too (and Alina who is in the car tengah busy selfie)

And to have the CEO of Propnex, Mr Ismail Gafoor comment on my mentor, I know, Alhamdullilah I am in good hands and feel even better for my clients who are rest assured that the team I am in is reliable and capable.

And it's just amazing that when you are striving for self improvement, Allah SWT will assist you get there.
This weekend, I have a potential Executive Condo seller who has fixed an appointment with me.

The request came at such right timing Ma shaa Allah!

Something I have never done before.
Something I am looking forward too.

We can't wait to go to the selling presentation.
By 'we', no no, my mentor won't be following.

It's me and baby in the tummy la.

So yeap, apa apa call us la.

You wanna sell/buy/ rent HDB  can call.... EC also can call....Condo also can call.... Cos we study already and in shaa Allah will be well prepared. Promise to equip you with all the knowledge we have. :)
