10 reasons to consider a career in REI Group’s fun factory

The death knell for most employees is being stuck in a dead-end job. At REI Group, we pride ourselves for being different. Here are ten reasons why you should consider to be part of our fun factory.

Ask any employees what are their top pet peeves in their career path and they will tell you of their mundane 9-to-5 job, the lack of flexibility, inability to exercise their creativity, the lack of career challenges and prospects. For most, the final nail in the coffin that drives employees away is of course politics.

While no company is perfect, it does not have to be that way. At REI Group, we recognise that each individual is unique with their own strengths and weaknesses. The question is, how do you harness your talents that will set you in the right career path? The answer is in being flexible, thinking outside the box and quick on your feet in an era of disruptive technology (think Uber, Grab and Airbnb)

Here are ten reasons why you should consider a career in a REI Group’s fun factory.

The best way to learn about any industry is to work in it. Property education is one that is highly important yet not many people are fully equipped when buying their property. For example, how do you ensure you can get your loan approved? Where should you buy your first property and minimise your mistakes? You can learn all this while on the job at REI Group. From mortgage to property selling, you will be able to learn the ins and outs of the industry across a wide breath of topics. Having this knowledge will set you apart from your peers. This is especially invaluable at a time when most young Malaysians are concerned about housing affordability while some are unable to get a loan. In fact, we are one of the rare real estate companies in Malaysia where you can learn from two noted property speakers and authors – Dr. Daniele Gambero and Khalil Adis. Pick their brains and learn from the best of the industry.

The best way to measure if someone will end up in the high-income bracket is to check if they have multiple revenue streams. This is what we offer at REI Group. When selling a property, from which the customer wants his loan to be approved, will also need to subscribe to an insurance coverage. You will get as a return a rewarding commission from the property sale and a six year recurring income from the insurance premium. This recurring income will come in handy for the downpayment for your first property where you will need a substantial amount of money.
