Hi.. My name is Patrick Liew and you might know me as the founder of the real estate agency, HSR.
Allow me to share my story with you of how I step foot into the real estate business and went on to build a multi-million property portfolio, receiving passive rental income from my properties as a landlord and becoming financially free in my lifetime.
You see, I wasn’t born into a rich family, neither do I have a silver spoon. I was born in a humble family.
For some reason, when I was 17, my aspiration was to become a social worker. I simply love helping people, giving more of myself to help the people around me and seeing how I put a smile on people’s face made it all worthwhile my effort…
However, as much as I love helping people and making their lives better, I realised that what I was doing wasn’t enough to be helping more people than what I wanted…
I consulted my mentors and my mentor told me this;
“Patrick, you need to become rich in order for you to have the resources and capabilities to help more people out there!”
So that was exactly what I did.. In 1992, I fired my corporate job and went out on a mission to become successful, but I had totally no idea on what I should be doing.
It was kinda incidental, but at that point of point, I happen to chance upon an article and in that article, it mentioned that 99% of Singapore millionaires became millionaires directly or indirectly through property investing… And 2 of the top 10 richest man in Singapore made their wealth through real estate!
