Why I Became a Real Estate Developer
Someone asked me why I became a real estate developer... Here's my story.
My family immigrated to Calgary, Alberta, Canada after surviving 5 years of the Khmer Rouge Regime in the mid-to-late 1970s. Both of my parents worked 2-3 jobs in order for us to survive in Canada in the early 1980s.
After almost a year, my parents purchased our first brand new home in Dover, Calgary for $70,000 at a 13% interest. It was a small home that was roughly 900 square feet with 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. My older sister and I shared one room, and my parents had the other room. It was the right size home for my family. We lived in that home for over 15 years and shared many happy memories there.
When I was in my early twenties, I reminisced about those memories and came to a realization that some developer built this home for a family to create these memories. I knew then and there I wanted to become a real estate developer. I knew I wanted to create homes for others to create the wonderful memories I experienced.
Today every one of the homes that we build has this intent/energy instilled in them. I hope to continuously develop beautiful homes for families to create many special memories.
