    aoa everyone,
    as you can see every one is saying real estate business is the best, being professional and after 16 years of job experience i have so far found this business of real estate is the best all you have to do is to look for a right person or name in the market who is really doing good in this business and cope up with him as an investor, that person will buy and sell plots for you and get his commission and will get you the reasonable returns. You amount will be secured in the form of land.
    to do this business safely minimum you should have 5 million in your pocket and the business starts, i am attached with one of the real estate office located on Defense road lahore, and doing investment in DHA phase 11 rehbar, i left my job and sitting with these guys now.
    People like me with the lowest investment are looking for the business ideas so i decided to share my experience which might be helpful for someone needy and start earning immediately.
    You are always welcome if you can afford 5 million minimum for the smooth and hand sum earning.
    Good Luck and best regards,
