Despite market volatility and the ongoing pandemic, real estate specialist IQI Global has sold over RM2.4 billion of properties in the first half of 2020, according to a report in the New Straits Times (6 July 2020). Group chief executive officer Kashif Ansari said the sales figures had shown that there is still a strong appetite for properties amongst value-oriented buyers. Kashif said IQI Global was hopeful to surpass its last year sales of RM4.34 billion by the end of 2020. "Six months into this year, we have already achieved more than 50 per cent of that figure despite the difficult circumstances." IQI Global's agents had rolled out technologies such as streaming listings presentations, online events, virtual tours and 3D rendering to showcase properties to buyers. "Our team of 10,000 global real estate agents has changed the way properties are sold," added Kashif.
