Jeffery Lam started his property business since 2007 as a Real Estate Agent at the age of 26 and has no regret since.
His goals were – never work for other people anymore, he wants to be his own boss, have flexible working hours and be a young and successful entrepreneur.
During his first year in the property business, he was awarded as the “Top Volume Producer” among his colleagues in the Damansara branch, meaning he produced the most cases either for sale or for rent throughout the whole financial year.
He is also the first to adapt to the Online Property Listing Portal to promote his properties.
The property hunters and investors behaviors has changed!
They not only hunting for properties through the newspaper classified, driving around the housing area, but they also started to search online. This was back in the year of 2007.
They were looking for more property info as well as the photos (exterior/interior) of the properties.
This was the first online strategy he implemented into his property business.
Since then, other colleagues and agents also hop into this bandwagon.
In year 2009, he achieved another “Qualifier Award” from the company.
By the end of year 2009, he launched his “Malaysia Real Estate Blog” under his own name – www.jefferylam.com. In fact, this project has been delayed for one year due to some technical reasons. This is the second online strategy he implemented into the business.
Since he had his own property blog, the visibility and credibility has gone up tremendously. Leads and enquiries flowed in, mainly through the Google organic search and some from social media as well as by word of mouth.
One of the pride that makes him proud of, is that, part of his property listings are now 80% auto-pilot. Meaning, he doesn’t need to go out to meet the prospects and show them around, yet he still manage to secure the deals and make his humble earning. Thanks to the Internet Technology!
