Fast forward five years; now, he owns 44 doors and has been rated as the#1 agent two years in a row for 2020 & 2021.

Key Takeaways:

"I started my YouTube channel, and I registered for a license. I don't have that much money to go on marketing different things because this was free stuff. Everyone can post anything. And there, you don't really need money to do it. All you need is different skills to learn, which are editing, posting, and all those things." - Aditya Soma

"People who connected with my story, who connected with me, said, you know, I love to do what you're doing. I would like to buy a rental property with you." - Aditya Soma

"In the first few months, I realized, 'Oh, my God, this is insane.' Because no one is doing this. All you need to do is dedicate your time. And it's free marketing [YouTube]." - Aditya Soma

"That big moment for me was all my debts were cleared after paying the taxes, just with one year. And the biggest, biggest reason is social media, especially YouTube." - Aditya Soma

"There is always an audience, different people who connect with your story, experiences, and knowledge. Because everyone's got something about themselves that other people will like. Trust me, out of 10 people; probably one person will like you. That's all we need to succeed in sales." - Aditya Soma
