I am a permanent resident in Singapore and have been attending New Creation Church for six years.
I had been working as a realtor with the same agency for the past five years and switching agencies had never been part of my plan. To me, my job as a resale realtor was very independent, with not much dealings with the agency.
But in early 2013, I experienced a high level of boredom. I felt stuck and was eager to change. At that time, one of the agents whom I had worked with two years back, approached me and shared how his income had drastically increased after switching to a new agency and was given an opportunity to launch new projects. He then asked me to join him and I agreed without much hesitation.
Throughout the year, people kept saying that the property market was poor and transaction volume was low. I was one of the pessimistic people who kept going into the office to keep my sales up.
One day while in the office, I saw pictures of the company’s Top Producer on the noticeboard and I whispered to myself that I too, would like to be the Top Producer one day.
Not so long after, I joined the marketing team for a new project launch. That was my first marketing project and I was still learning the ropes.
During the preview period, I collected five blank cheques from clients who had made their bookings in advance. But I was told not to keep my hopes too high as my colleague had experienced having nine advanced bookings previously but none materialised. Nonetheless, somehow I just believed that I could convert them into actual transactions.
Finally, the launch date arrived, and I realised I was the only newbie. I was extremely nervous and lost whereas everyone else seemed to know what they were doing.
However, to everyone’s amazement, I managed to sell four units! Wasn’t God good?
I believe it all happened because of God's grace. How can a newbie like me sell more units than those who had been in the marketing line for so long?
And yes, despite the lull property market, I was named the Top Producer and Top Transactor for that particular project!
Looking back, it was truly because God's grace had opened the door for me. And He is faithful enough to answer every single prayer request that I make.
