I convinced him to become a partner so that we can both get into a Mercedes in 5 years. We took a place in a two-storey building on the side of the E5 Highway and started to work only for the sale of the land and hung a giant tarpaulin. After a while, it was fortunate to buy that building with credit. Then we renovated the building and built our 7-storey central building.

We are currently building 78 seafront villas in Şarköy and 69 bungalows in Kırklareli.”
