Oleg Torbosov and Whitewill Luxury Real Estate on Leaving a Mark Through Business

Many people aspire to leave a lasting impact and legacy in this life. Still, not many have been able to do that. At a young age, Oleg Torbosov has not only successfully achieved impact, influence, and business longevity through Whitewill Luxury Moscow Real Estate but now looks to help others do the same by building thriving businesses that will run for generations. 

To say that Oleg is a multi-faceted entrepreneur would feel like an understatement. He has achieved so much in real estate entrepreneurship at a young age despite having a challenging start not too long ago. His company, Whitewill Luxury Moscow Real Estate, is one of today’s leading real estate companies in three countries: Moscow, London, and Dubai. This year alone, the business looks to close over  21 billion rubles, or around $300 million, in sales before wrapping up one of the most challenging years for the property market due to the COVID-19-related economic meltdown. 

But Oleg isn’t a stranger to crisis himself. When he started as a young professional, he began from the bottom, waiting tables in St. Petersburg, Russia, to make ends meet. But those humble beginnings never stopped him from dreaming of bigger things. Instead, he dedicated himself to self-improvement, reading books by authors like Robert Kiyosaki and making necessary mindset and lifestyle shifts to prepare for a better future. He shares how Rich Dad, Poor Dad was one of his most significant turning points. “After reading that book, I decided to quit my job as a waiter and to launch my own business,” recalls Torbosov. 

After leaving his stable job to take more significant leaps of faith, he started with a design studio, which would meet considerably impressive success given that it was his first business. But later, Oleg would leave the design services industry and start a career in financial services. That business would also prove profitable—enough for Oleg Torbosov to sell the company for a profit and start in real estate. From then on, everything seemed to click from the young entrepreneur.

Later, Oleg would niche into luxury real estate, seeing a big boom in premier properties for more high-end clients. There was push-back at the beginning from peers, as some thought that Oleg was over-reaching in a highly-competitive market. But the serial entrepreneur would prove naysayers wrong. Today, Whitewill Luxury Moscow Real Estate stands as a monument to the power of perseverance and “a little bit of stubbornness.”

Today, Torbosov has slightly shifted gears and put serious thought and action into teaching people to build their real estate businesses. The property industry provides some of the most long-living ventures, given that real estate only appreciates with time. Accordingly, Oleg is out to prove to everyone that real estate can be anyone’s game with the right mindset, heart, and passion. The educator and entrepreneur have also written two books, The Way of One Oleg and The Way of One Agency. Both titles have entertained and empowered equally, showing the power of entrepreneurship and how to leverage principle-based truths to become a real estate guru or business expert.

Creating Timeless Treasures: APM Monaco’s Evolution

By: Darby Jones

From the earliest civilizations to the present day, people have been drawn to the beauty and symbolism of precious metals and gemstones. Jewelry has always held a profound significance in human society, transcending mere aesthetic adornment to embody cultural, personal and emotional values. As such, the act of choosing and wearing jewelry is not a mere superficial decision, but a reflection of one’s self-perception and the values they wish to project to the world. In spite of this, the jewelry industry on the whole has remained stagnant relative to our changing world and our changing values. There is, however, one jewelry company separating itself from the rest with plans for evolving their products to be cooler than ever, while maintaining their ethos of reliability and sustainability.  

APM Monaco is a renowned fashion and luxury jewelry company, known for their chic and affordable designs that are both fashionable and classic. The company was founded 40 years ago by a team of jewelry experts, who brought their knowledge and passion for crafting unique and timeless pieces to the market. Over the years, the brand has been able to establish a loyal following in Europe and Asia through their website and hundreds of brick-and-mortar stores, which offer a wide range of jewelry collections to customers. In 2017, APM Monaco finally expanded to North America, opening a store in the iconic SoHo neighborhood of New York City. The brand’s commitment to creating both desirable and sustainable jewelry has earned them a loyal customer base in America, with a staggering 45% of shoppers returning for more. This repeat customer rate is significantly higher than other retailers, solidifying APM Monaco’s reputation as the most trusted fashion and jewelry brand. The company continues to grow and evolve, constantly introducing new collections and designs that appeal to a diverse range of customers. 

APM Monaco’s latest collection of jewelry, Rock, is an evolution of the brand’s signature style, featuring two new twists on their popular Yummy. Building on the bright and youthful color palette of their previous gummy bear-inspired line, they have now introduced a new, more mature and sophisticated aesthetic. The SNOW full white Yummy and LUCKY full khaki Yummy pieces are a perfect example of this evolution, featuring elegant and refined designs that complement evening wear. The new bear designs are versatile and can be paired with a variety of clothing and accessories, including black sequin and silver pieces, which exude a sense of strength, confidence, but also playfulness. The brand continues to be inspired by skater culture and hip-hop, but now they are channeling that energy into creating versatile, timeless, and suitable pieces for any occasion. APM Monaco continues to push the boundaries of fashion and jewelry, constantly evolving and adapting to the changing market, while keeping its loyal customers happy. The Rock collection also includes new materials such as semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls, adding a unique touch of luxury to the designs. With this collection, APM Monaco demonstrates their ability to blend the classic and the trendy, creating a collection that is both timeless and on-trend.

APM Monaco’s commitment to sustainability is also evident in their production process. The brand uses only ethically sourced materials and works with a team of skilled artisans to craft each piece by hand. This not only helps the environment, but also allows customers to give new life to their treasured pieces. The brand’s commitment to sustainability and ethical practices sets them apart from other jewelry companies, and is just one more aspect of their evolution towards being a leader in the industry. With their focus on creating timeless, versatile, and sustainable pieces, APM Monaco is sure to continue growing and delighting customers for many years to come.
