Sylvia Hii, BSc in Real Estate student.

Hi, my name is Sylvia, a second year BSc Real Estate student at UoRM and I’m currently doing my summer internship in the property management department at Hartamas Asset Management Sdn Bhd. ...
Interning with Hartamas had given me the chance to explore so much more about the real estate sector than I’m able to learn in the classroom. It’s a great opportunity for me as I was able to develop practical skills and gain valuable hands-on experience in property management aspect such as liaising with contractors, building owner as well as tenants, monitoring the condition of property and also recommending on ways of improving the assets and facilities.
The BSc Real Estate program at UoRM really benefited me a lot in my internship. The lecturers are all experienced and highly qualified. They always deliver high-quality lectures with a combination of their real-life experiences which provide us with deeper understanding of the content. In addition, they are very helpful, approachable and supportive as they provide speedy and useful feedback when we face any problems in studies. Moreover, I truly appreciate the various guest lectures by professionals to share their real-world experiences in the industry. As a student at UoRM, I had been given many opportunities to build connections with professionals in the industry, get the insight and viewpoint of their area of expertise as well as getting helpful advice which are beneficial and useful in planning for my future career.

I am assigned four main job scopes which are cold-calling owners of factories/warehouses/land in Klang Valley and communicate with owners to rent or sell their properties for more details such as build-up area, land area and power supply. I will also make cold-calls to targeted clients for their requirements, advertising listing on the portal and prepare proposals for clients. I will follow my superior and colleagues for site visits and they are always willing to teach me about property details I have to pay attention to, such as building specifications (ceiling height, load bearing, security and setback), land matters, government applications and local authority regulations. They give me many opportunities to handle real life cases, which I am very grateful.
The knowledge I have learnt in my course are so useful and applicable to my internship.
