As a salesperson in this everchanging industry, how do you position yourself differently, to get your clients today.

I even have clients who left Singapore many years ago but whenever they know of someone coming to live here, they will connect their friends to me via email to introduce us. I make it a point to match my clients as much as possible their dream home with the best option available in the market. I never try to push them to other developments.
