The Senate parliamentarian dealt a potentially lethal blow Thursday to Democrats’ drive to hike the minimum wage, deciding that the cherished progressive goal must fall from a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill the party is trying to speed through Congress, Senate Democratic aides said. The finding by Elizabeth MacDonough, the chamber’s nonpartisan arbiter of its rules, means Democrats face an overwhelmingly uphill battle to boost the minimum wage this year because of solid Republican opposition. President Joe Biden was “disappointed” in the outcome but respected the parliamentarian's ruling, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

(Photo: Samuel Isaac Chua/EdgeProp Singapore)In addition, the house is located on elevated land, which gives it additional height.The 999-year property is exclusively listed on EdgeProp Singapore’s property portal and is marketed solely by Lydia Low, division director at ERA Realty Network.According to Low, the asking price of the house is very reasonable, as the owner spent some $2 million on the interior design and renovations.

She began her journey in the industry in 2002 when she decided to switch careers. Her previous role was a project manager in architecture and interior design – a position she had held for over 10 years.It did not take long for Low’s career in property to take off.In addition to the dining room on the first floor, the family occasionally eats at the outdoor dining area located on the roof terrace. (Photo: Samuel Isaac Chua/EdgeProp Singapore)“Based on my previous experience, I have an eye for detail with regards to the design of a property. Therefore, I have the confidence to know whether it will best suit my client’s needs.” says Low.The clients she met through the years have continued to entrust her with their properties, recommending her services to their families and friends, many of whom have become her friends.View from the roof terrace, which overlooks Dairy Farm Park. (Photo: Samuel Isaac Chua/EdgeProp Singapore)“I would like to thank my clients for their trust especially when they did not know me well at first. This is something that greatly encourages me.” She says.In fact, Low says her business has grown in tandem with her clients’ portfolios.When asked about her successful relationships with her clients, she attributes it to her honesty.“Most of them like the fact that I’m transparent throughout the transaction. I’m not afraid to be direct about my opinion that may prevent them from entering the deal. As such, they can tell I am wholeheartedly, working for their interests.” she says.The house, located on elevated land, resembles an urban, modern resort. (Photo: Samuel Isaac Chua/EdgeProp Singapore)Low shared that even though she lost a deal early this year, she continued to maintain a good relationship with her client.“At that time, I had already submitted two offers for my client, but the offers fell through. The client eventually ended up buying a house directly from the developer while he was just trying explore other options in other neighbourhood. Following this, he called me to explain why I was not asked to conclude the deal and that it was not his intention to bypass me.” We met for coffee and he shared with me on his personal journey of his faith and breakthrough that bring him back to Singapore after working several years abroad. His testimony of humility has encouraged me to live and walk in the same way. This client also continued to engage the lawyer I recommended and trusted me to sell his other property for him.”Low says that nothing is mere coincidence. "We are all part of the puzzle and we receive our blessings in one way or another, monetary or not. My greatest satisfaction comes when my clients have a good experience both searching for their dream home and finding a buyer for their current place."(Photo: Samuel Isaac Chua/EdgeProp Singapore)Low does not see her job as solely buying and selling properties. “It is my passion to see through the entire transaction and other details for my clients, managing it to best fit their desires. That is what keeps my business growing.”“To me, the closest metaphor is this: every single interaction with my clients is like a piece of art. Every single brushstroke that is made, culminates into a beautiful and complete piece.” She adds.In fact she sees her role as one that helps clients grow and restructure their property portfolio – a role Low derives great satisfaction from. Besides that, Low adds that she is also a good rental agent who has helped many of her clients with their properties.“When I first started, I wondered if doing a job in sales was the right one for me. Today I am a team leader with 30 agents with me and we are still growing. And I train my team in the same ethos.”For more information about the listing, visit here.Contact Lydia Low l 90309094Division Director (R025546J)ERA Realty Network Pte Ltd - L3002382KWebsite: www.lydialow.com-->See Also: Singapore Property for Sale & Rent, Latest Property News, Advanced Analytics Tools New Launch Condo & Landed Property in Singapore (COMPLETE list & updates) SRI crosses 1,000 agents, expands into auction business Origami-inspired detached house at Siglap Plain for sale at $10.5 mil 135 shophouses sold in 2020, 10% higher y-o-y En Bloc Calculator, Find Out If Your Condo Will Be The Next en-bloc HDB Resale Flats Up For Sale, Affordable Units Available
