Your international property partner

Jalin Realty connects owner occupiers, investors and developers in Australia and Asia


A trusted name for more than 30 years

Jalin Realty is a privately owned business specialising in property marketing, sales and support. The business began in Kuala Lumpur in the 1980s, marketing property to people looking to diversify their wealth. In the 2000s, the business began marketing Australian property to Malaysia, followed by the opening of offices in Singapore, Indonesia, China and Australia.

As we have grown, we are proud to have provided opportunities for our clients, our staff and our business partners to grow with us. With the recent opening of an Australian office in Melbourne, Jalin Realty now provides an even greater range of property related services, as well as connections to Asia for local developers.

Our Vision

To provide opportunities for people to improve their lives so they can improve their world.

This has been our vision since Jalin began more than 30 years ago, and it has guided our staff and our business practices ever since. As an international business, we see the value of being able to live, study, work, and travel across the world. By providing opportunities to make that happen, we believe our role is to help build a global community.

In Malay, the word ‘Jalin’ means ‘strengthening ties’, while in Mandarin it means ‘harmonious home’. Both meanings apply to our vision – helping people to make connections and create places to live and grow together. We do this by providing forward-thinking opportunities and long-term security.

Our Values

Guided by integrity and professionalism.

As the landscape of the property industry changes, our guiding values have remained the same, and can be summed up in one word: ETHICS. This not only protects our clients’ wealth, it has also made us one of the premier choices for Australian develops looking to market their projects in Asia, and for Asian investors looking to buy property in Australia.

Excellence. We work to deliver the best results.
Teamwork. We work together with clients and partners.
Honesty. We’re transparent in everything we do.
Innovation. We are always striving to find a better way.
Commitment. We’re loyal to the people we work with.
Sincerity. Our word is trusted around the world.

Our People

Our strength is in our people.

Jalin Realty is a family business with strong family values at the core of everything we do, from when we began with just 10 people in 1989 to our almost 100-strong team today. Our staff are members of Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) with ongoing training to ensure they have up-to-date industry knowledge.

Just as important as our own people are our trusted partners. We’re proud to have worked with major developers, such as Mirvac and LendLease, as well as smaller developers who also share our high standards of quality. We also work with a trusted network of solicitors, accountants and other professional providers to deliver a seamless one-stop-shop service.
