Covid-19 is the reason Ajit Saini became a real estate agent and new Real Estate Authority figures show he is not alone.
A record number of people joined the industry last year.
Saini, 42, had worked in sales for a large furniture company for many years and his family had often told him he should go into real estate.
But he never took their suggestions seriously until the pandemic hit. Unable to work over the level 4 lockdown and unsure about what the future held, he decided the time was right to make the move.
He got his licence and started work last October, and he has not looked back since.
