“Thank you for spending some time looking through this page, and if you are reading this, it consists of my life journey throughout my career and I hope this would be able to inspire you to be the best version of yourself.”


At the tender age of 19, I joined the real estate industry without having any knowledge or experience. I started from ground zero and because I was young that time, people do not take me seriously and I did not get much support from my previous company and colleagues. I had to find my own way and get my own leads from both prospects and owners.

After completing my degree in accounting and finance. I decided to begin my career full-time in real estate. No doubt when I shared with them about this they disagreed and encouraged me to join the corporate world doing something related to my degree. 

It was a rough time as we were on different pages and because of the big dream I had, but I know the potential of real estate and what it could help me achieve. I decided to go against them for the first time and went full time to pursue my career in real estate.

It was never easy as there was many times I felt like giving up but look back I am grateful for it as I discovered a courage in me that allows me to not give myself excuses and not focus on the negative things and continued through knowing that I am going to be successful one day.

That kept me going and evolved me to who I am today. It made me stronger and through every experience I went through it was a lesson learnt. 

“I don’t believe in luck.
But I believe in Faith, Hard Work, Courage, Determination and Teamwork.”

I was fortunate enough that I was able to be the top sales of the company every year, but behind the scenes, I was totally burnt out.

I still remember there was once I was watching a movie and in the middle of it  I had to excuse myself to take a call because I was so work oriented and every deal was worth about 10-20k which meant a lot to me. I was so focused at work to the extent that I scarified my family. For almost a month I did not go back to have a dinner with my family and despite my journey towards success, my parents was not happy because I am always working and have been neglecting them.

That was when I knew I needed a team but I wanted to build a team right and create a team that is sustainable for a long run. “I had to come up with a way that add so much value to my agents so that they wouldn’t leave and at the same time create time for me to allocate for my family.

Therefore, at the age of 24, after lots of trail and errors, I decided to join a bigger platform and to build a team for my own wanting to share the knowledge and skill I have learnt to others who are going through what I went through. 

I started with 3 team members and cultivated a strong culture to always be positive and have gratitude. The team then grew from 3 to 30 and 30 to 100. After a year I have over 500 members under my wings.  

In 2018, I was crowned the most inspiring woman in the real estate industry by iProperty. After leading the team to win the championship on IQI platform, I was recognized as one of the most influential young entrepreneurs in Malaysia. I had helped more than 100 agents who earn 6 figure in a year.

In this 5 years, it has grown to a team with over 1,300 bright individuals as for today and that was how Elite Legacy is formed. It was never an individual effort but a team effort as everybody shared the same vision and mission and worked hard together to achieve it.

I have always worked hard but the catalyst of my success was the constant support and nurture from my team. Without them, I, Ashley Tan wouldn’t be where I am today and I’m deeply grateful for it. 

Moving forward, my life mission has evolved as I have developed a unique vision to help people transform their live from ordinary to extraordinary through real estate platform as I aim to develop individuals to build a real estate business globally and be able to enjoy their life to the fullest.

It is now my turn to use the knowledge, experience and skills that I have gained to illuminate a bright path for others. My mission is to lead by example; to empower more women like you to go after your dreams fearlessly; to guide you towards success like a lighthouse. 

“Individual you are one drop, together we are an ocean. Together as a team, we can all achieve greater wonder, and we will make the dreams come true.”

To me, leadership is about leaving permanent positive impacts on people and being the reason why someone does not give up.  My definition of success now is never about my personal accomplishments but how I could be the role model who brings out the best in you and how we can all flourish together through cooperation. It is no longer about me, it’s about you, it’s about us. 

I hope this would inspire many to do more and I am going end it with the core principles that carry me throughout my journey.

“Your dream must be bigger than your fear, if you want to succeed, you must have the will to want it as bad as you want to breath.”
