Pertaining to my industry of real estate, personally I think it is NOT acceptable to lie at any point of time as it involved a huge sum of money. It is not okayed even to say a white lie. I practice my business with honesty which I think is the best policy and you will not have to worry for repercussion years later. Hence even if I don’t get the deal, I rather live with honesty witch in the long run will benefits my clients , my associates and also in turn my business.
About Shirley Ong
I have been in the Real Estate industry for over a decade and truly enjoys helping clients migrate to Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and Europe. Part of my portfolio includes bringing developers overseas to Hong Kong, Taiwan and China as well as bringing in huge sales for developers and the company. I am a Real Estate and Immigration specialist, who deals in high net worth individual and companies portfolio. I have strong connections in Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China. This is because I have immersed myself in these countries for more than 10 years. Being well versed in English, Mandarin and Bahasa Indonesia, I find my job much easier to converse with clients and colleagues. About 70% of my clients are from these countries. As a top NUS student with a promising management career, becoming a Real Estate Agent wasn’t easy decision for me; however today, I am glad that I made the decision. I am also very passionate about empowering people particularly two groups – the Young Entrepreneur and Women. Well equipped with counselling and psychology skills, i use it smartly to reach out more effectively. Other of my interests include reading books and travelling.
