We plan on moving forward with more real estate investments. The name “Properties For You” expresses the fact that we prepare our rental properties with the client in mind. It is FOR YOU—the tenant, buyer, and final user.
How did you get started in the business?
I was born with business in me. My first established business was an import retail business that I opened when I was 20 years old. A few years later, I opened and ran a pub. I then moved to the United States to go to Kansas State University. Once I established residency in Omaha, I invested in real estate. That first sale locked me in.
