Monthly Character Recognition - Joyfulness
In this edition of Monthly Character Recognition, CSX is very happy and pleased to recognize a real estate negotiator who embodies or personifies the very meaning or definition of JOYFULNESS exhibited through holistic happiness, phenomenal positivity and wholesome well-being. She is truly one jovial character and bubbly personality who is constantly cheerful and inspires those around her through her insatiable humour and contagious laughter. Joanne Ng is one of the few people at Cornerstone who possesses the innate ability to bring real joy to others, brighten up anyone’s day and put a smile on your face. Any event, activity or programme without her presence would surely be less fun indeed. She is generally revered and respected by team mates and fellow colleagues for her utter kindness, genuine honesty and bona-fide trustworthiness. Joanne firmly believes that nothing is impossible in this industry so long as one maintains a can-do or never-give-up attitude, and always believing in oneself!
REN to REA - The Road Ahead - Part 1
Our guest speaker for today also featured the one-and-only beloved and favourite Managing Director, Wong Yau Long who shared his real estate journey in “REN to REA – The Road Ahead.” Starting out as a real estate negotiator, Yau Long amassed multiple listings thinking they represent abundant prospects and success opportunities. But without a clear laser-focus and relevant business strategy, one is surely bound to fail. To truly succeed, we need to specialize as well as diversify. To grow one’s business, sometimes to do less is more. But we should never limit ourselves or our capabilities. We also need to have a big-game mindset, set the right goals, and create key tasks to attain the goals. Envisioning big goals and investing in marketing & leads generation is the 1st step toward thinking like an entrepreneur.
The fundamental pathway to meeting your goals and building strong rapport with your prospects begins with focusing on key task, A1 task and effective activity. Develop a robust relationship with your clients is key to increase your sales. Prioritize your tasks through a series of appointments and presentations. Nurture your leads to obtain more referrals and greater business opportunities. As your business grows and matures, your focus shifts from being a farmer to becoming an owner/proprietor. Learn to maximize money invested versus time spent. A balancing act of engaging customers via productive time management and optimal capital expenditure. The unique selling point of CSX lies in its productivity within 3 core X-factors, namely Marketing (Max), Technology (X-Force) & Academy (CSX University). Through the recruitment of new talents and harnessing the potential of sales personnel, generating quality leads becomes second nature.
REN to REA - The Road Ahead - Part 2
As you strive for corporate ownership, raising funds/capital is critical towards attracting great talents. With the right workforce, you ca0n grow your company to support your staff, resources, revenue and expansion. As Yau Long used to say, “Think Big, Aim High!” Having a grand vision and setting lofty goals provides the necessary drive, impetus or motivation for success not just for yourself as a corporate owner but also for your teams and their respective leaders. Thus, the business career-cycle from farmer (REN) to agency owner (REA) to corporate owner (entrepreneur) is finally complete. Last words of wisdom: Never settle for anything less than par excellence, period!
