"Maybe you can do something with your agency commission? It is a Buyers' market now" said the Dutch boss after his obligatory inspection of the H J Heights maisonette before permitting his employee to lease. He had inspected over 600 apartments in Singapore and that demands respect from any housing agent. However he is a busy man and needed to hurry as the unit was real cheap. New housing agent and any expat boss to note that cheap spacious well renovated units are rare. Do not procrastinate. The agent needs to work hard too. In this case, there is a delay of 7 days but Owner seems to favour this Dutch couple with toddler and agreeable to terms. Agent loses $600 from commission too.
