Aaron Wan Division
About Aaron Wan
I am Aaron Wan, a seasoned real estate investor with a successful career in the industry. My professional background includes working as a banker at Credit Suisse and as a Tax Consultant at PwC Singapore, which has helped to enrich my knowledge and experience in the field. I devoted two years of rigorous research before purchasing my first property, a private freehold apartment near Serangoon, for over half a million dollars at the age of 24.
In two years, I acquired another property worth $1.5 million in Prime District 9 near Orchard, which served as my marital home, demonstrating my preference for real estate investment over luxury goods.
In 2017, I invested $2.3 million in The Sea View apartment in Prime District 15, and in 2020, I seized an opportunity during the Covid-19 Circuit Breaker period to purchase my dream landed property at East Coast at a price of $1 million below its assessed value.
I expanded my portfolio in 2021 to include shophouse investments by acquiring two shophouses at Kitchener Road & Koon Seng Road. After only five months, I sold one of the shophouses, realising a four-times gain on the initial capital outlay. In the year 2022, I invested in two conserved shophouses located in prime District 7 (Bugis). By the second month of that year, I had earned a sales commission of $1 million. This accomplishment serves to reinforce my competence and experience in this field.
2023 marks the year where I invested in two more shophouses in one of my favourite districts – Prime District 15 (East Coast). On the personal sales front, I successful clocked $1 million in sales within the first five months of the year, thereby achieving millionaire status for the 7th consecutive year.
My story is a testament to the fact that success in the real estate industry is achievable through hard work, research, and strategic investment decisions. I hope that my journey inspires aspiring individuals and shows them that with proper skillsets and a chance to grow, one can achieve financial success in the real estate industry.
Our first teammate has joined us when I am still a one man show in late 2017. And since then, we have grown into a dynamic and passionate team of realtors that serve with both the heart and integrity.
Over the year, I have achieved numerous awards. In 2018, I was awarded with Top Recruiter, the Fastest Growing Team in PropNex.
I emphasize a lot on one-on-one mentoring sessions with my team members and make it a point to sit down with each of them to do some goal setting. It is important for them (and me as well) to understand their motivations and what they plan to achieve.
No two men are alike; by the same token, no two agents may share exactly the same goal. Some may wish to work towards income replacement – where they earn as much from real estate, as they did in their previous job except with more flexibility and spare time to spend with family.
Others may choose to double or even triple their income. Hence, it is crucial for me to understand my team members, so I can better equip them with the skills they need to achieve their real estate goals.
AWD has came out with unique training platform for individual to push beyond their limit. We believe in promoting holistic training sessions and ensure that we plan for individual needs in innovative ways to assist our new agent or those who feel lost in this real estate industry.
We also work closely with PropNex management and KNA family.

One reopening, the owner of a three-bedroom unit at The Sea View in District 15 managed to sell his property solely through virtual viewings. According to Aaron Wan, group district director at PropNex Realty and the seller’s agent, the 1,410 sq ft unit will go for $2.85 million ($2,021 psf) when the option to purchase is eventually signed.
While most Singaporeans his age are moving into or living in their BTOs, 32-year-old Aaron Wan just moved into his S$7 million, freehold, close to 10,000² ft landed property in District 15. And this purchase was made through these uncertain times of COVID-19, to boot. The immense success this young PropNex division leader was not by sheer luck or coincidence; Aaron strictly adhered himself to a lifestyle that is now the cornerstone of his very own ‘28’ programme.

Coming from a corporate background, the initial transition to becoming a self-employed is always going to be challenging. The biggest challenge would be creating a daily work routine, filling your day with activities and most importantly, persisting with this routine so that your time is fully utilised for real estate work.
As a brand new RES in AWD, I have benefitted greatly from Aaron’s One to One close mentorship and guidance. The team is also a closely knitted community whereby you can expect selfless and motivated teammates, constantly encouraging one another to do well.

As an experienced agent and leader with 14 years in this industry, I have also experienced ups and downs along the way. One common challenge is the constant need to get new listings and leads when existing ones run out.
When I brought my team over to AWD in July 2021, I received a break through in my personal sales within 3 months and clocked 2 Platinum Awards in PropNex in September and October 2021. The team synergy within AWD, alignment of PropNex and KNA leaders and also the amazing trainings and sharing have helped me and my team greatly.

Entering entirely new into the industry was uncharted waters but being an entrepreneur previously I understood that I have to be uncomfortable to be comfortable. There’s a lot to catch up on in a short amount of time I set myself in order to level the playing field in this highly competitive industry both in experience and knowledge.
Aaron’s wealth of experience and passion for the real estate industry coupled with selfless sharing culture within AWD allowed me to get up to speed quickly and cut short my learning journey.

In AWD, a helping hand is always just a phone call away. With a willing heart.
I joined AWD in 2019. I noticed the friendliness and sincerity from the beginning.
AWD agents honestly love hanging out over meals and sharing life. Encouraging one another and spurring each other.
Covid did not seem to dampen the spirit of my AWD colleagues. Yes, Covid made things more challenging but it wasn’t a dead end, just another hurdle to overcome along the journey.
One of the things I have truly appreciated is that Boss Aaron and the top producers (like Grace, Azhar) were never ever too busy to help. They always helped. With a smile. Patient. Thorough. Despite their busy schedules.
For that, I am truly grateful.

When I was looking for a change from my previous agency, I met up with Aaron and was immediately impressed by what joining AWD has to offer. Despite his success, Aaron is very grounded and down to earth. I could see his clear passion for the property market and he is very willing to share his time, knowledge and success methods with everyone in the division, be it via meticulously planned weekly training program, regular get together events and one to one sessions which we can reach out to him anytime.
While I have more than 10 years of experience as a real estate agent, I will admit that time management is not my strongest suit and I often find myself being overwhelmed by the deluge of information out there. With AWD, I have access to updated list of trusted vendors (videographers, social media specialists etc), bankers, lawyers and this truly help in my day to day operations. Aaron and his team painstakingly compute and send out weekly market sales updates and balance post launch inventories which is presented in a clear manner.
Real estate can also be very lonely profession. AWD provides a big caring and sharing environment where I truly feel at home with. In the past one year with AWD, I have seen my commission earnings increase by about 50%.
