OCBC Bank brings magic to real estate agents
OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad (OCBC Bank) honoured its partner real estate agents through what was literally a “magical” evening at the JW Marriot Kuala Lumpur recently.
Emcee and magician Cody Tan engaging Mr Lim Wyson, Head of Consumer Financial Services, OCBC Bank, with some of his magic.
The highlight of the dinner programme was a showcase of the agents’ successes over the past year, with entertainment of a magical kind being the order of the day.
Emcee and magician Cody Tan mesmerised the audience with his sleight of hand and sheer dexterity, demonstrating not only great showmanship but all things witty and whacky as well to get the crowd roaring.
The event culminated in an awards presentation ceremony that saw cash rewards totalling over RM10,000 given away to top individuals, including the winner of the Top Agent award, Lau Yong Ying, who walked away with a cool RM2,000.
According to OCBC Bank’s Head of Consumer Financial Services Mr Lim Wyson, the appreciation night was held to recognise and celebrate the strong alliance between OCBC Bank and the real estate agents.

“We are pleased with the magical camaraderie that has contributed to the steady growth of our loans business through these real estate agents, in particular, the solid growth in registered real estate agents. Compared to last year, out agent pool size increased by more than 50%, and the number of referrals coming through in the first half of this year alone has nearly doubled compared to the whole of last year.
“As the single largest referring partner for our home loans, it is only fitting that we share this night of joy with them,” Mr Lim said.
Also present at the event was Head of Secured Lending, Ms Thoo Mee Ling.
