The real deal
Andrew Miles, 34, co-founder and director, Realla
Being young and successful happens when… hard work, talent, luck and timing intersect. I don’t regard myself as successful, but hope our business is moving in the right direction.
Advice for property graduates: Try to figure out early in your career what you really enjoy and what you’re really good at. For instance, being an agent and being a principal suit different personalities. When you have figured it out, work hard towards it.
What do you wish you had known when you were starting out? Starting a business is a marathon, not a sprint; it is a long, hard journey. And work with people you like, trust and admire. This goes for colleagues, investors and indeed everyone. This is what makes the journey tremendous fun.
