Resilience – and relaunching in real estate with Ivan Sarakula

“A lot of us spend time comparing ourselves. You know, I want to be bigger and better and I want to be like that agent, or I want to drive that car…None of it matters…, if you're honest and you're passionate about what you do”

The day to day life of an agent is often walking a fine line of risk versus reward.
