Emilie was moving to Singapore from Belgium; she needed to find a home to rent. She found out about Propseller through a Facebook group for French expats and eventually got in touch with her agent, Kesang, via the platform. With Kesang’s help, Emilie found her ideal condo after just 2 days of viewing units. Her move to Singapore couldn’t be any more fuss-free!

When I did my research while moving, Propseller came highly recommended
I was due to move to Singapore for work; seeing as I didn’t know anything about the country or its property scene, I felt it would be best to engage an agent.
A few months before my move, I started reading up about Singapore. The most useful resource I found, by far, was a Facebook group for French expats in Singapore. There were several mentions of Propseller there, and someone on the group gave me Propseller’s number, so I gave them a call.
Propseller didn’t just match me with an agent, they also gave me helpful advice
I spoke to Propseller’s founder Adrien on the phone for almost 30 minutes, when he gave me advice and lots of useful information. He told me pretty much everything I needed to know to move to Singapore. During the call, I had informed him about my situation and shared my requirements for a home. I told him that I was searching for an apartment that was low-rise and family friendly, and that I didn’t want to stay in the city centre.
After we had worked out all the details, Adrien recommended an agent – Kesang – who would be a good fit for me. Kesang got in touch with me soon after my call via Whatsapp, which I preferred considering I was still in Belgium. She gave me all the information I needed to know before flying in.
How I scored my ideal apartment in just 2 days with Kesang
When I flew to Singapore, I met up with Kesang and started viewing apartments immediately. Kesang had everything lined up and arranged such that we were able to view 15 apartments in just two days.
On the first day of viewings, most of the apartments I saw fit my requirements to a tee. Kesang, however, thought I should see more options to be sure, and showed me some other apartments which helped ensure my decision. She also helped me weigh the pros and cons of each apartment.
After I decided which condo I wanted to stay in, Kesang showed me several units within that condo and I finally narrowed it down to The One.
Kesang negotiated my rent down, helped me with a handyman for repairs and was in general so reliable
Kesang was extremely understanding; she didn’t exert any pressure on me or try to influence me in any way. She helped me to negotiate my rent and brought it down by $700! Kesang also engaged a handyman to help me with minor fixes and repair works in my new house which she obviously didn’t have to do.
I can’t think of much that Kesang could’ve done to improve the process.
I’d rate her a 5/5… she really made the entire renting process stress-free.
I would definitely recommend using Propseller to all my friends who consider moving here
I was initially apprehensive about my move to Singapore, but it was a lot smoother and easier than I expected. Of course, that’s all thanks to Propseller and Kesang.
If you’re looking to move to Singapore, don’t waste your time searching for agents on your own – all you have to do is head to Propseller and request for them to match you up with a great agent.
The next success story can be yours.
