later, the Canadian embassy in Turkey called him out of the blue and asked if he still wanted to go to
Canada – needless to say he was thrilled after such a long wait.

estate business having engaged in investing and selling properties for many years in his home
country. Ali is actually the first Iranian Licensed Realtor in New Brunswick, plus he has also taken
the building inspector course to further his knowledge. Furthermore, so he could hit the ground
running, he has been following the real estate trends in New Brunswick for the past 3 years. Along
