En-Bloc King’s Latest Venture Takes Off
Oct 12, 2023
Meet “en-bloc king” Karamjit Singh. He brokered Singapore’s largest en-bloc deal – the S$1.338 billion sale of Farrer Court in 2007. CapitaLand emerged as the buyer, and it transformed the expansive site (840k sq ft) into D’Leedon.
What made this accomplishment more astonishing was the fact that Karamjit was not from a globally recognised brand like Knight Frank or JLL. Instead, he was part of Credo Real Estate, a young consultancy which he co-founded with Melvin Poh just five years earlier.
In 2012, JLL acquired Credo and Karamjit joined their ranks. In 2016, he decided to venture out once again on his entrepreneurial path. He founded Showsuites in 2017, which is dedicated to revolutionising the presentation, marketing and sale of new homes. If you are a recent homebuyer, there is a strong likelihood that you will experience Showsuites, given that its market share of new home launches has increased substantially the past two years.
