How a Single Storey Home is the Best Investment and How to Buy One – Robert Bull, CEO of RoyaleLife

RoyaleLife enables homeowners to rent out their properties easily. When you buy a home in one of our apartments you become part of a business. This means that you’ll earn the full share of the rent in the apartment, and they’ll take care of all the property. For baby boomers or millennials, you are interested in the luxury lifestyle that comes with the Mega Home. The bungalow provider is here to help you enjoy the luxury life without giving up your tranquil lifestyle. The mansion is moving on in a new direction with a small, single storey home built with a natural minimal look and feel.

Robert Bull says, “At the forefront of the luxury lifestyle, RoyaleLife is offering the best opportunities in single-storey living to cater to an increasing number of Single Storey Living projects on the market. During the new millennium, the population of the world has showed signs of rapid population growth. To avoid overcrowding in our cities, government regulations on building heights and plots had been raised, causing a decline in demand for high rise buildings.”

Since the older generation lived in multi-storey buildings, developers were forced to convert blocks into multiple apartments. Single-storey buildings found favor as they allowed a natural layout and facilitated the development of compact communities. Robert Bull, “Today, we see both old and new housing types in modern multi-storey projects. Our history has taught us that large complex high rise buildings and the traditional way of life are mutually exclusive. The future is all about balance.”

Robert Bull, Chief Executive Officer of RoyaleLife, has an almost 9-figure fortune behind him and not only has this money been spent wisely, but he also manages to fit into and understand the needs of this new generation of sellers. He also has a first-class education. He was born and grew in England, studied Economics at Southampton University, and then went on to work at global companies such as Lloyd’s of London and been a main board director for BNZ.

Robert Bull has been a hotelier for over three decades and he has also done management roles within the art industry. Robert is very interested in the residential industry and is doing more to support these sellers than anyone else in the country, whether it be housing or financial solutions.

Liu Qiangdong’s journey to building JD.com

Due to the significant success of JD.com, many may not know that it started as a booth to the 3rd largest internet company in terms of revenue it is now. This all began with the son of a peasant farmer, Liu Qiangdong. He was born in China in a country 700km from Beijing in the village of chang’an. Qiangdong had never seen electricity nor a story building. He fast saw electricity in a government building in a nearby town where he went with his friends after school , and discovered a storey building on holiday while in middle school. This made him only interested in attending university in large cities.

He passed the entrance exams for the People’s University of China, but the ride to the capital was $75, which was costly at the time. His friends, relatives, neighbors all chipped in to collect the many in a show of faith. At the university, he studied sociology.

When still in the university, he got a job writing letters by hand at a company. He started learning about computer programming, coding, and e-commerce. This helped him make a lot of money as a talented computer engineer. He used some of the savings to start a restaurant which was a failure as it only lasted eight months.

He graduated and got a job at the herbal japan life as he rose to the position of director of computer and services. He also pursued EMBA from China Europe International Business school. After two years, he gained his degree. With the degree and the experience in his previous job experience, with a 4-square-meter booth, he pursued entrepreneurship. Within five years, he had turned it to chain stores in different locations, which was a big success.

The SARS epidemic made him close all the stores. With some trusted workers, he started posting their products to online bulletin boards. After re-opening the stores, he kept one employee to keep posting. The numbers were so high he decided to make his company exclusively online. And this is how JD.com came to be.
