Omar Boraie is a wildly successful businessman and the co-founder of Boraie Development. This property company has grown tremendously, in large part because of Boraie’s business acumen. He recently shared several of his tips for success. Firstly, he recommends studying and learning from your competitors. Competing businesses have been working in the same field as you and have been successful doing so. Learning from those who have done well is a great way to avoid making dumb mistakes.

Several different development companies have focused on this area of the city in the past decade. Numerous predictions and reports have forecasted a resurgence of growth in this area, hence the numerous high-end developments. The previously mentioned lessons helped Omar Boraie be successful in this venture. By analyzing the actions of other development companies in the area, he was able to make smart decisions about his development. Additionally, using price analysis accounting tools helped him work with accountants to set region-specific rent prices that would still be profitable.
