Where there is struggle there is opportunity. How has Covid impacted your industry? by Shirley Ong

It was indeed a struggle during the Covid as viewing of property was difficult and almost impossible especially during the complete lockdown for 2 months in year 2020. However, many of us pivoted fast enough by rushing to take video of properties before the lock down. Fast moving forward for almost 2 years now, clients are used to watch the video for their property search, although clients would want to see the actual property but they would certainly prefer to watch the property video to see if they would like to proceed to see actual property and feedback from many clients felt that this actually save their time in property search. Covid has certainly impacted the way we work but I think it is a positive and good impact.
