Rup Singh, 26
Although Rup Singh wanted to please his parents by becoming a doctor, he realized it was the thrill of the real estate business that truly enticed him — and he hasn’t looked back since.
Singh has distinguished himself as one of the nation’s top 100 real estate agents and was named a 2018 “Rising Star” by RE/MAX, generating up to $500,000 in gross commissions in one year and tripling his production in three years. He is one of the youngest realtors in the industry to receive such recognition.
The Yonkers resident says he always loved architecture, sales, and working with people but sees his favorite part of the business as selling the American dream.
“If I see a family smile, or when I help a newlywed couple walk into their first home and they are about to start a whole family there, that, to me, means everything,” Singh says.
Working with buyers, sellers, investors, and developers, Singh is committed to finding the perfect fit for his clients’ needs — noting that perhaps 70 percent of his business is generated by social media and referrals.
As Singh’s success builds in the New York area, so does his confidence. “I want to expand into the major cities of the world; if I can practice real estate here and kill it here, I know I can do it anywhere in the world.”
