When Nish Reddy first came to Australia he quickly realised that buying and owning property was the way he wanted to build wealth.
After gaining his MBA and rising to a senior level in the banking sector, Nish started investing in property and building a portfolio. And while he was earning good money and on track with his career, he knew his heart was in real estate.
With his passion and skill in property shining through, his friends and family quickly started asking for his help in identifying good opportunities and even negotiating other types of purchases including cars because of his skills in dealing with people. That’s when he knew this was a business opportunity for him.
“I’ve always been a bit of an entrepreneur,” Nish says.
“I started in business when I was in my early 20’s, before my MBA and had some success.
“But my circumstances didn’t allow me to continue the business.
“However, in the back of my mind, I always wanted to be an entrepreneur.”
He says that during COVID and having that extra time to think, really made him ask what he wanted in life and that drove him to become a buyers agent.
Nish set up his business, Get Fair Property in Sydney and now works with both investors and home buyers to help them buy high-quality properties.
He says he loves it when he can save his clients time and money.
“There’s a lot of satisfaction for you personally when you help a busy couple and make the process painless and do something for them, they wouldn’t have done themselves.
“I recently saved $220,000 for a family in Hornsby.
“But it’s the time that is actually the most valuable commodity because you can’t get it back.”
According to Nish, the business got off the ground smoothly, and his biggest challenge was getting the support of his family.
“I was in a high-paying job at a big bank so it was very hard for me to convince my family that I was going to do this full time.”
“They wanted me to do it part-time as a side hustle and still work for someone else.
“But I always wanted to be my own boss and be a business owner.”
Nish worked with the Buyers Agent Institute (BAI) and says the course was instrumental to him getting started the right way.
“There is already a structure in place,” he explains.
“So you just get into that structure and go through the course at your own pace.
“Every week there is new information on marketing, pricing and expert advice ready to tap into.
“Then there is the community that is there ready to help.”
Looking forward, Nish wants to continue to grow his business and expand his team.
He says that for people getting started in the industry you need to be prepared for the ups and downs.
“It’s definitely not always rosy,” he says.
“You’ve got to have a thick skin and you must be prepared to be uncomfortable at points in the journey otherwise it’s pretty hard to succeed.
“But don’t be discouraged.
“Keep working hard, keep networking, keep meeting people and you will definitely get business.”
