I am bilingual Mandarin and English speaking full time Real Estate agent here in Manhattan New York. Being a Mandarin Speaking Real Estate agent in New York is one of my biggest asset.
Manhattan New York is a cosmopolitan city that has over 40 different world Languages used daily in this town. Walking down the street of Manhattan or riding the subway, you will hear different accents of English being spoken.
As a Mandarin Speaking Real Estate agent, I learn the language while I was growing up in Taipei Taiwan. I was born in city of Taipei Taiwan 臺灣, it is known as Formosa meaning “beautiful (island)” in Portuguese, Taiwan is located in East Asia off the coast of China. My family moved to New York when I was 13 years old when I had a good foundation based of Mandarin in both reading and writing.
Majority of the residents in Taiwan speak both Standard Mandarin (officially recognized by the Republic Of China as the National Language) and Taiwanese Minnan (commonly known as “Taiwanese“; a variant of Min Nan spoken in Fujian province). Mandarin Language is the primary language of instruction in schools; however, most spoken media is split between Mandarin and Taiwanese.
When our family moved to New York when I was a teenager, going to American schools, I practice speak in English more than Chinese so that I can make friends and be liked among my peers. I often not want to speak much of my own language in school, partly because I was learning my way around how to speak like ‘an American girl’ with a proper accent. And I learn my English through ESL classes (English as Second Language class) Although my family (especially my mother) have always remind me not to forget Chinese language as one day it will be very useful for me.
Mom is right, keeping my language proficiency in Chinese, and now working as a Chinese Mandarin Speaking Real Estate Agent in New York, I have been able to help buyers and sellers because I am bilingual, and working with many sellers and buyers who also share the same culture heritage. I have been assisting oversea investors that speaks Chinese and connecting sellers who would like to sell their property to oversea investors using my language and culture connection.
