Huttons Hope Event 2017

Huttons Hope made a difference in 3 young and ambitious Singaporeans’ future by providing them with a 3 years full scholarship support for their tertiary studies. They are from Chen Su Lan Methodist Children’s Home, and were given the scholarships based on their academic performance and our assessment of other criteria such as their financial background. At Huttons, we believe that capability coupled with opportunity are key to success in any endeavours. These individuals had excelled in their studies, and we see the scholarships as opportunities for them to further their studies and achieve success in their chosen filed. Here is what they have to say about our scholarship program:

Students


 


It has been a hectic and stressful time for my JC life, having to prepare for my A levels examinations in less than 2 years. I also had to cope with new subjects such as Economics and General Paper which are not my strengths. But having received Huttons Hope Scholarship, I pushed myself to give my best every time when I felt like giving up. This is because I know what HOPE really means – it is an attitude that gives me a positive outlook on life and helps me to stay focused on achieving my goal. Huttons Hope Scholarship has given me that HOPE and I will use it to be a springboard to achieve greater heights. – Raymond, Temasek JC (18 years old)
I certainly am truly grateful for the help Huttons has provided so that I can pursue my dream. Huttons’ gift has motivated me to do likewise for others with similar background and I hope I can contribute to help others too in the future. To me, Huttons Hope Scholarship is a great opportunity for me and has positively transformed me as a student. By allowing me to pursue my diploma without a single worry of the financing aspect, this Scholarship has allowed me to give my 100% in my studies. I am truly blessed to have this gift of education by Huttons, which is the greatest gift possible. I cannot express enough my gratitude but to thank Huttons for the full financial support, from the bottom of my heart. – Pooja, ITE Central: Business Studies (18 years old)
Huttons Hope Scholarship has helped me pay for my tuition fees and I would like to thank Huttons for the support given. I deeply appreciate the help as I don’t need to worry about money issues and can concentrate fully on my studies in ITE.I have enjoyed my Nitec course and would be graduating at the end of this year. My aspiration is to further my studies in Higher Nitec and subsequently pursue a diploma course. Thank you Huttons! – Dave, Temasek Polytechnic: Digital Forensics (20 years old)

Kia Eng – Division Director

Why I join Huttons DND

Frankly speaking, I joined Huttons DND because of a friend. I remembered I knew him from a real estate course. He was my classmate and he was focusing in HDB back then with another company. After some time, he joined Huttons and I could see that he was doing well. As I was also exploring better opportunities, I gave him a call to ask for more information. Throughout the conversation, I was convinced that Huttons DND  the right division that I’m looking for, a division which the division director and leaders will share selflessly and keep us up to date for the current property affairs.

Why I love what I do?

In real estate business, what I love most is seeing nice properties and meeting different types of people every day. I have met a lot of nice and rich owners who shared their life stories with me and their stories inspired me a lot and made me work harder to achieve financial freedom like them. This is a business which I truly enjoy.

I help owners to sell properties and make profit. I help buyers to buy their dream house. I help oversea tenants to find a nice house to settle down in Singapore. I help landlords to rent out their house to enjoy passive income. I help and help and help… With all the helps that I’ve given, my reward is my COMMISSION! I have discovered that the more people I help the more commission I will get. Isn’t that nice to get paid when you are helping people at the same time?

My career path

After high school graduation in Malaysia, I pursued my studies in Nanyang Technological University and chosen Mechanical Engineering. All the while, I thought being an engineer is a good choice. Until there was a few times I worked until midnight and without being paid for that, I thought that’s a tough life and I wanted a career switch. I always admired sales engineers who drive car and meet clients. So, I applied for a Sales Engineer job, selling machines. In Singapore, there is only a small pool of machining companies. Every month, I was meeting same group of people. There was one day, when I was sitting at a coffee shop waiting for my client, I thought… I must sell one thing that everybody needs it and they must own it. What is the “it”? Then I remembered I had a friend who worked in a real estate company as an admin staff. I asked her to introduce me a good leader in her company. After attending the career talk, I signed up immediately. I “tried” the real estate job for a few months, when I had stable income from real estate; I quitted my full time job and became more focus in real estate business. I have never looked back ever since…

A day at work

Every day, I will interact with my clients, follow up with the potential prospects and arrange for appointments. Not only that, I will also do marketing for the project that I’m focusing in.

Being a Team Leader to me…

As a Leader, I always make sure every teammate knows and understands the marketing strategies that I’m using. I feel that in real estate business, knowing how to get leads the most important knowledge that one needs to master. Besides knowledge, it’s always good to create a cohesive environment whereby teammates can share and know each other better so that they won’t feel alone, especially the new teammates. Therefore, occasionally, we will get together for a meal and share our experience, exchange ideas during the meal.

What I love outside of work

I’m a health conscious person. Every morning, I will go to park to practise Qi Gong. I’m also a devout Buddhist. Every day, I will spend 1-2 hours chanting and read a chapter of book about Buddhism. Every week, I also spend one day to do charity work in a temple. My life is kind of boring to a lot of people; I don’t go party and drinking… But, I feel good with whatever I’m doing. And I think; if not because of my flexible working time, I can’t do all these things that I love doing. Recently I have picked up a new hobby, which is internet marketing.

Benedict Choo – Division Director

Why I join Huttons DND?

The reason why I join Huttons and in particular Huttons DND, all comes down to a 20 years experience as a salesperson, a manager (leader), and a businessman.

As sales persons, it is important that we have unlimited access to good products to bring to our potential customers. In Huttons, we are pampered with new launches after new launches from renowned developers including CDL, WingTai, Fraser Far East and many more. This allows me to concentrate in selling without having to worry if I can find the next good product to present to my potential customers.

As leaders, it is important that I am recognized and given the opportunity and platform to lead, while at the same time, adequately rewarded. At Huttons, we can choose the career path of becoming a project group leader, chief group leader, 2nd IC and eventually main IC. This path is both rewarding and challenging.

The other aspect of leadership is within DND in Huttons. In DND, we believe in continuously sharing, training, learning and grooming our associates to be the next leader. Adding on to a strong cohesive culture, new associates are assured that they will never have to walk alone.

As businessman, we overlook an entire business module, set plans, targets and process and run them on a day-to-day basis. Apart from the importance of having the right infrastructure and support from the company, very often we need to tap onto the expertise of our fellow associates and partners. In Huttons DND, I can easily tab into other’s expertise without reservation. This allows me to achieve more with less.

Why I love what I do?

Real estate is a rewarding career if one is with the right company and surrounded oneself with the right people and team. However reward alone does not motivate me. I enjoy leading and making a difference in the life of people around me. As a leader in Huttons DND, I get to do just that, enjoying the reward of a successful career and leading and make a difference in the life of my associates and peers.

My career path

Graduating with a BSC Management (HONS), I soon realize that life is not all about paperwork. For the first 15 years I was in the car trade, starting from a sales person to eventually owning my own business. While the rewards were good, I cannot say the same about job satisfaction. Finally I found my place in the real estate business, where I can proudly say today, I am enjoying what I am doing.

A day at work

A day at work involves interacting with clients, addressing their needs and giving them the best possible advice for their property needs. Other then that I would most probably be meeting the teams, providing them with training so that they are well equipped to give advice to their clients.

Being a Team Leader to me…

Being a team leader to me is really about sincerely wanting to make a difference in the life of the people around me, in particular, my team. A leader carries certain responsibility to ensure the success of every teammate.

What I love outside of work

Outside work I am a free spirit. I enjoy hanging out with friends, doing sports from time to time, partying or travelling.

Deryk Ng – Division Director

Why I join Huttons DND

I have been in many different real estate agency and I operate my own real estate agency from 2000 to 2007.  Around 2008 I decided to call it a day as I am tired of training and retraining as my company is  not able to retain experience agents as they are always expose to pouching by other agency.  I realize 1 thing lacking in my company, which is the product to keep my good agents from running away.    Meaning property listing.  In Huttons we are being feed with hundreds if not thousands of direct listing from developer.  This will help us retain our associates as there are plentiful of properties for them to sell.  The reasons I joined the premium is because :

  1. Very powerful sales skill shared with us by all our top leaders
  2. Very cohesive team which are willing to help each other.

 

Why I love what I do

I love helping my client make money. When they make, I will also benefit from it.  Running a real estate business is my passion. I enjoy the feeling of seeing my client so happy when they profit hundreds of thousands from the property I sold them.

My goal in life

In real estate to achieve financial freedom is no longer a hard to dream and hard to achieve especially if you are in employment.  For the past few years in Huttons, with good leadership, good training, good guidance I achieved Total financial freedom.  My next goal is to help my team mate to achieve the same ultimate goal in life – Financial freedom.  I always long to help the poor and needy but all these are not possible without strong  financial backing.  With the achievement ever since I am in Huttons, DND this is no long a dream and beyond reach.

A day at Work

I hate the idea to wake up early and get jammed in the traffic while travelling to work.  In my younger days in employment, getting caught in traffic twice a day is almost part of daily life.  Now my working life change completely.  I plan my work schedule the way I like it and enjoy the comfort of working practically in any place and any time I choose to be.

In the morning while typical workers are being caught in the MRT squeeze or Traffic jam, I am enjoying the cool morning breeze jogging by the sea or garden.  I jump right to work without wasting anytime the moment I get home. At the comfort of my home with light fragrance aroma and light background music, my working life is never hectic.   All the hard work, generate immediate and handsome return.

Driving and travelling to meet client now become a breeze as I always schedule to avoid travelling during peak traffic.  I could have more time with my family and plan holidays as and when I like it.  Best of all, I could buy and spend on things I love to have and enjoy in life.  My working life is never hectic anymore ever since I am in Huttons DND, its really enjoyable.

Being A Leader to Me

Growing a team is never in my mind but it comes so naturally.  Where good friends, old college just passionate to join me after seeing my success story.  The spider man movie says “High power comes with high social responsibility”  .  This remind me that as a leader I have a heavy responsibility to ensure everyone of my down line is well equipped with latest technology and a superior sales skill to excel and do well in their real estate carrier.

What I love outside my work

Running by the east coast sea, jogging in a garden is something I love whenever time permit.   With flexibility in managing my own work schedule, life is so enjoyable.  I love to travel, every end of the year I will spend 1 month, the whole month travelling. It can never be possible without the financial freedom I am enjoying now. So can you.

Why I love what I do?

I love waking up each morning knowing that no matter HOW much planning I do, my schedule will change at a moment’s notice.  Apparently I like living on the edge. Building a business will not allow you to take a back seat to opportunity. Building a successful business requires that you step out in faith and embrace risk, better yet, calculated risk.  It is all about taking the risk and reaping the reward.

Making the business fun and looking good keeps me going.

What I love outside of work

Climbing Bukit Timah Hill

The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is one of Singapore’s most interesting nature spots. As you might know, Singapore is an urban jungle and it is difficult to find natural greenery and places to sit down and enjoy the sun and sky. I love to climb up the Bukit Timah Hill, look at the flora and fauna, and check out some monkeys climbing around (really!)

Love going to the beach

  • jogging while enjoying the sea breeze
  • sitting on the boardwalk (Bedok Jetty) listening to your favorite tunes
  • watching the sunrise & sunset

Nice Cafe & Restaurant

Chilling out and enjoying the good company of friends and loved ones with good food in a hip cafe or restaurant ranks top when I am not working.

Linda Chow – Division Director

 

Why I join Huttons DND

I have always have had a good impression of the consultants in Huttons whenever I visited some of the showflats back as a customer. They were knowledgeable, polite and most importantly, I was being treated as a customer.  Placing Customers above all has always been a core value in my work ethnic in my 15 years when I was working in financial institution.

When I decided to join the real estate industry, I only joined the company and teammates that shared the same value as me. In DND, you will find the leaders believe strongly and advocate in the importance of customer – consultants relationship.   Without customers, we are nowhere able to achieve our goals.

Why I love what I do

I love properties. Simply adore them. This job allows be to see the most beautiful showflats in town. I can immerse myself in the multi millions showflats thinking how I can value add my clients house renovation.  I enjoy exchanging property investment tips with buyers and sellers. And best of all, this job allows me to sharpen my property investment skills so as to add on to my list of properties purchase. Isn’t this the best of both worlds?

My career path

I had a very successful career with American Express and ANZ as sales leader in their credit cards. I was always aiming and chasing for the next target set by my management. I would present loads of proposals to my business partners and then trained my sales team. However, I was burned out and needed a rest but also to do what I enjoyed and yet earned money. For the love of properties, I chose real estate. And I chose DND.

Amazingly, I became the TOP 8 Producer in Huttons in my first month of work. On my 1st year anniversary, I became the TOP 1 Producer for October.

A day at work

After sending my daughter to school, I would look at my emails, update my listing and scan through what are the available properties in the market that my buyers and sellers want. For customers who are not familiar in properties, I would personally do up a financial chart for them. Some days, I meet up my past buyers for coffees. Trust me, all your buyers will envy your job.

Being a Team Leader to me…

Is responsibility towards you and also your family. What warms my heart is when my team mate is able to close a deal and quickly bring their family out for dinner or purchase that special gift that he or she has been eyeing for their loved ones.

What I love outside of work

I love floristry. I have a certificate in flowers and gifts arrangement. I love to make people happy over my flowers or gift arrangement. I have the ambition to be the next Noel.

Joseph Lim – Senior Division Director

Why I join Huttons DND?

Firstly, I want to be part of the market leader in project new launches as this segment is where my passion lies.

Secondly, i love the culture in DND Team. We learn together through various training and sharing sessions which creates a open sharing culture that results in closely knitted bonds among the associates and leaders. I see my mindset transformed and my capacity enlarged in DND as I network with the top producers in the division.

Why I love what I do?

Years ago when I first started in this business, my mentor told me that to be successful in this business, you need to have a genuine love for what you do. At that time, i did not fully understand what he meant.

However, as i gain more knowledge in the business, I begin to feel the satisfaction that this business can bring apart from the monetary gains when I see my clients moving into their dream homes or cashing out their property for a good profit.

Now, i had fully understand what my mentor meant. I have been very lucky to do what i truly loves and seeing my wealth grew along the way. Over the past few years, i had helped dozens of families realise their dream of buying and selling properties.

My Career path

I started the business part time in 2009 during the economic downturn. When my part time income from the business exceed my full time pay check for a few months consecutively running,  I quit my engineer job in the marine industry and came into the real estate business full time in mid 2010. I have never look back ever since.

I believe in learning at every opportunity, and continually strives to perform at my peak potential. I’m a reader and has studied sales, marketing and negotiation techniques extensively and believes that my clients deserved nothing but the very best from me.

I keep myself updated of the latest local property news and trends. I believe that there is always a good deal out there and is able to advice my clients whether to sell their property or to make a purchase in any market condition. Many clients have written me testimonials to thank me for helping them to find the dream home and/or the perfect investment, where their entry risk is the lowest and the upside potential is the highest.

Being a team leader to me

Armed with the belief that you can have anything you want in life if you help enough others to get what they want, i started team building apart from doing personal sales. I believe that leadership is servanthood ie to be a leader to my team is to guide them, to show them the way, to share with them the strategies, marketing ideas selflessly and to mentor them to be more successful than me, enjoying the journey along the way.  I love it when team mates call me to share their closing joy with me. This is something that money can never buy.
