When Cham Godakanda decided it was his time to shine, one of his big concerns was how his decision would be perceived by his team.
Personally, he wrestled with leaving the team he had formed great relationships with over the years but the drive to build his own agency, Goda & Co, was too strong.
So, when he announced his decision, the reaction he received shocked him.
He received the full support of everyone.
“The biggest fear was having to leave the team I had created over the last few years and not being there to support them anymore,” Cham says.
“However, soon after I had announced to everyone that I had decided to give life to Goda & Co, I received full support from everyone I can think of.”
Cham has always enjoyed helping people, finding his purpose in assisting his clients through the ups and downs of their real estate journey.
And now, with the support of UrbanX, he can fulfil his purpose on a larger scale.
Embarking on his journey towards paving his own legacy, with full control of how he operates, a core influence on Cham’s decision to partner with UrbanX was an alignment of values and an unwavering vision to succeed.
“After a lot of research and talking to other agency owners who are partnered with UrbanX, it was an easy decision that UrbanX lead the way in how the future of real estate agencies operate.
“To be the best, you have to be surrounded by the best.”
Cham has always found joy in influencing his clients and colleagues to fulfil their goals and be the best they can be, and he recognises that the real estate industry has the potential to achieve even greater heights.
“From the beginning, I have believed that the real estate industry as a whole can lift the bar much higher if real estate agents had their intentions set to exceed clients’ expectations,” he says.
Cham says UrbanX has exceeded all expectations and will empower him to focus his energy on client support.
“So far working with UrbanX has been an amazing journey. I have been well-supported and guided through the whole process,” he says.
With a focus on quality over quantity, Cham emphasised that exceeding clients’ expectations should be a top priority for real estate agents.
And building his own business was seen as an opportunity to set a higher industry standard and inspire others in the process.
So, what’s his advice to other agents who are seeking the same?
“The moment you find your purpose and why you want to build your own business, the process is easy,” Cham says.
“My advice is to find the best people who can help you to fulfil your purpose.
“Be surrounded by people who are constantly evolving to be the best in what they do”.
With Cham’s passion for helping people and the support of UrbanX behind him, Goda & Co is poised to make a significant impact in the Forest Lake real estate market.
