For seekers of real estate mentors, JLD is a great place to learn the core fundamentals of real estate and how to successfully brand yourself as a strong player in the market. You will find yourself often surrounded not just with JLD Champions, but also many opportunities and access to PropNex’s top producers, so one can pick up tips and tricks and uncover key ingredients to their success to build and grow your own business model.
JLD partners with many leaders from their Advisory arm and PropNex and regularly conducts interesting hands-on workshops to help you mature and develop faster than being a ‘lone wolf’. Not only will you benefit first-hand from Lau’s personal properties’ investment journey, but these exclusive training and sharing sessions will provide valuable insights and strategies to improve your sales and adapt to the fast-changing industry. “I teach my agents how to empower our people and clients to achieve their life goals through real estate,” says Lau.
As a JLD joiner, you receive four comprehensive training modules created and conducted by Lau, each comprising eight lesson plans. They include in-classroom training and on-site application, where you learn the following:
● “Consistently win listings with I.M.P.A.C.T” teaches agents how to be reliable listing and seller agents by knowing the client well and devising a customer journey funnel to help them track how well they acquire homeowner leads and convert them into paying customers.
● “Sold on Time” is about Learning and applying relevant negotiation soft skill techniques to achieve win-win solutions between seller and buyers — this is a signature programme and activity-driven hands-on module. Many homegrown producers speed up their closing skills by applying what they have learnt and improving their interpersonal and cold lead connect skills.
“Own It Or Go Home” is knowing how to run real estate like a real business and be your own boss. This covers Business models and business planning, implementing operation frameworks to ensure a consistently strong sales pipeline, smart resource planning and budgeting (including activities, cash flow and time management tools and techniques).

“You can attend one or all of my business modules and learn more about new launches, referral businesses, serving sellers and purchasers. Each of them will enable you to manoeuvre the ever-changing business climate as it equips you with the knowledge of key real estate products and markets that can help you to ride the real estate cycle successfully year after year,” says Lau.
On top of these helpful modules, Lau will conduct routine follow-up sessions with her agents and quarterly reviews to ensure they are on track towards their sales targets.

Collective advantage

A notable benefit of JLD membership is access to a cosy and private office space named JLD P.O.S.H (Property One Stop Hub) in the Kallang district for conducting business. JLD members also enjoy the advantage of utilising the Group's resources, including basic staging furniture, video filming, editing, and tech tools, enhancing the value-added services they can provide to clients and boosting their sales productivity.
Lau reassures that the life of a property agent, often solitary, does not have to be. The office-like environment, structured with systems and regular group activities, facilitates a sense of connectedness among agents, keeping them agile and consistently enhancing their productivity and sales conversion rates.
“Here at JLD, we know how crucial it is to have a dedicated workplace to your success. This two-storey office and studio space has since served as a second home where every member of JLD is free to work, brainstorm new ideas, conduct best practices, reviews, and smaller group rehearsals and roleplay training. It is also a safe environment filled with positive vibes for us to relax after a long day with a client,” says Lau.
“The power of one great person is awesome. The power of many great, passionate persons is phenomenal. Your net worth is your network. One needs to be like molecules, constantly “colliding” with one another to bring about strong kinetic energy. The more JLD agents network, especially with the highly productive members in the community, the higher their chance to do well and, in turn, contribute to the group's high vibrancy and positive energies."
