About 30 years ago, Siva Raj and his family fled their war-torn country of Sri Lanka with only the things they could carry. This experience made him determined to succeed in life and investing in property has paved that journey. He started investing in property as a hobby while he was still in university. This hobby quickly turned into the profession of property development and investment.
In this episode, Raj shares the challenges he went through adapting to life in Australia, and how they only added to his resilience and drive to succeed. We’ll hear about the first property he scrambled to purchase and what he needed to give up to do so. While it was something the average university student may not be able to give up, Raj’s past experiences meant he would have done it 10 times over to thank his parents for all they sacrificed. While it certainly wasn’t an easy journey, it led him to reap the many rewards he enjoys today.
