Founder / Group Managing Director

Joseph Chiu –

“ I run a property investors’ one-stop-centre. “

Joe grew up in a family that runs Mcdonald’s business. Eljo Restaurants in Sibu is the 1st franchised Restaurant in Malaysia store #35, entrenched back in 1993. During his time with McD, he started as a trainee floor manager and eventually led a team of 300.

His passion for engineering and interior design ultimately led him to form ELJO Development Sdn Bhd (903107-x) in 2010 and Ideas Makeover (1160723-U) in 2015. Since then, a number of his ventures have been focused on breathing new life into abandoned properties by refurbishing their interiors with his own refined and distinctive taste. From finding the properties to rolling his sleeves up on site, to finally handing a pair of newly minted keys to the owner, Joseph strives for a feasible balance between value and aspiration. Most of his projects have either sold (>30% Margin) or rented (>8% Rental Yield) within months on the market and the record-breaking rental income at 62% above market rental. He self-describes his passion in design & properties as an extension of his own pursuit of perfection.
