Episode 8

Instant is the new normal with Ban Leow

Everything starts with passion. With that as a platform, you get to cement what you are going to achieve.

We should all be able to go to bed every night, knowing that we’ve done the right thing and we have helped someone change their lives.

Everybody needs to make money for living, but this is not a priority.

The priority is making sure that people are not taken advantage of.

We have to care for people, no matter the business we are in.

On today’s episode, I talk with Ban Leow about the new trends and topics in the real estate market and also, what it takes to be competitive in this industry.

Ban Leow always had a passion for real estate. He entered the business in 2004, but in 2008 took a break from real estate, and opened his own business in the furniture industry, which was another passion of his. In 2014 Ban got back in the real estate game, and he is now a dominant force in an extremely competitive and ultra diverse market.

So, whether you’re a buyer, a seller or an agent, listen to Episode 8 of Deposit That, and learn about the real estate business from someone who’s taken over one of the hottest markets in New York City.
