I work for my father’s business he was given by his father. He imports gemstones and jewelry made of gold and gems from Turkey. We have a small chain of jewelry stores that deal almost exclusively in items from Turkey. I travel there several times a year, and my wife and child often go with me. We started looking at real estate in Turkey for sale to have a stable place to stay when I go to make deals for new product and raw material acquisition. No one in my family is from Turkey or is Turkish. However, we all benefit from Turkey’s export of gems and gold. I am not a jeweler, but I do know the materials we use better than anyone else in our company. That is why I am picked to fly over and get new stuff.
My wife and I have enjoyed our stays in Istanbul. It has been fun watching the city continue to grow each time we come back. There are some grand building projects going on that are offering very nice apartments for sale in Turkey.
