Industry: Housing, Construction & Real Estate

Reason for starting? Since my childhood I have dreamed of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Fortunately my parents have made me stand up for what I want and have helped me to set up a platform from which I can pursue my passions. With every pursuit I wanted to do something different. As real estate is a male dominated industry and full of risks and challenges, I was attracted to this industry and I decided to start my own business in real estate.
