Malcolm started a new life by moving at the end of 2013 from New York City to Cambodia. In 2019, he moved from Phnom Penh to Bangkok.
In his “old” life, Malcolm enjoyed a variety of careers, the most recent having been real estate sales.
His background prepared him perfectly for a successful career in that field starting in 2002. It equipped him to provide expert advice — from recommending a sales price to making a purchase offer and onward. And it proved to him the necessity of providing a level of service that clients could trust implicitly.
Among highlights of Malcolm’s past experience are speech writer for the Secretary of the Navy; award-winning journalist, including Money magazine, the Associated Press and a number of publications that ran his freelance pieces; communications executive for an investment bank and various non-profits; founder of the Office of Public Education in the U.S. Treasury Department; president of a $1 million condominium association; and president of a $1.4 million co-operative.
After creating and overseeing a $26 million international public education campaign for the Treasury during his “temporary” employment there from 1995 to 2002, he opened what evolved into a thriving real estate business in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. While in the D.C. area, he was licensed as an Associate Broker or sales associate in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. He was credentialed as Certified Residential Specialist and Graduate of the Realtor Institute.
In New York, he was a Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker affiliated with the Charles Rutenberg Real Estate having returned to New York City — where he had spent more than 32 years reveling in its diversity, energy and cultural opportunities.
Malcolm has been quoted in the New York Times, the Washington Post and other publications and achieved a measure of respect as a blogger. In addition, he has been cited online frequently by news media such as the Wall Street Journal, Curbed, the Real Deal, BrickUnderground, the New York Post, WOR-TV, NY1, CoopAndCondo.com and Crain’s New York.
