She is a consistent 5-time Millionaire Champion Achiever in SRI, with outstanding achievements such as SRI No.2 Top Achiever in 2022 and SRI Champion Top Achiever in 2021.

In this feature, Christina will share with us the essential qualities that has enabled her journey towards being a champion producer agent.
Be Flexible and Creative
Christina sees the significance of adaptability and flexibility in the ever-changing real estate industry. As someone who is open to innovative ideas and approaches, she is always quick to adapt to the changing market conditions. This is evident as despite the cooling measures last year, she continues to maintain her outstanding performance by diversifying her portfolio.
“Residential properties are the most affected by the cooling measures, so it’s important to diversify and not rely solely on them. By expanding to a wider portfolio, I am exposed to a wider range of clients who may be interested in diverse types of properties for different purposes. The flexibility I show is how much I value my work, and I am always happy to utilise what I know about the industry to help and guide my clients through their property journey.”
She highlighted that real estate transactions can be complex and challenging and strong problem-solving skills is the key to navigate tricky situations and find creative solutions for her clients.
Always Stay Empathetic and Optimistic
Having dealt with clients from various backgrounds, Christina understands that buying or selling a property is a significant event for many. Carrying this constantly on her mind, she approaches every transaction with empathy and compassion, listening to her clients’ needs and concerns, so she can provide proper guidance throughout the process.
“I am inspired to make a difference in the lives of others, and I’m motivated by the desire to help others achieve their real estate goals. I find satisfaction in helping clients find their dream home or investment property and take pride in my ability to provide excellent service.”
A positive attitude and outlook are also important traits that Christina maintain at work. Being an active agent in the industry, Christina is always energetic and optimistic, even when facing challenges and setbacks. With her years of experience, Christina continues to advocate for her clients, find common ground, and secure favourable terms within the demanding and fast-paced industry.
Keep Up with Continuous Learning and Trends
Christina emphasised that being a lifelong learner helps her to consistently keep up with the industry trends. “I love to read extensively and seek out the latest information to grow myself. As a real estate agent, I understand the importance of continuous learning and staying up to date with industry changes, best practices, and modern technologies to better serve my clients.”
She also owns strong work ethics and comprehensive knowledge of the local market as two of the most essential attributes. “A top agent should have a deep understanding of the local real estate market, including current trends, pricing, and inventory so we can always provide accurate insights for our clients.”
Christina encourages fellow agents to be tech-savvy and do not be afraid of using technology to enhance their business.
