As  Malaysia  continues to see a spike in COVID-19 cases, the government has extended the current period of MCO to 18 February, placing tight restrictions on public activities. During this challenging time, we extend our well-wishes to all Agent Partners and we hope you’re keeping safe.   

Despite the ongoing pandemic, we still see strong purchase intent by property seekers with over 8 million monthly average visits on from October to December last year. 

Better yet, statistics from  SimilarWeb  showed  Malaysians spending the most time on our site  compared to any other property website in December 2020 (Average Time Spent on 00:04:20).   

Most importantly, this means more views, more  leads  and  higher closings  for YOU!
