Murad moved to the United States from Azerbaijan, by himself, at the age of 16. With little more than $1,000 in savings, he worked his way through high school and college at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma. Before entering real estate, he bought and sold two businesses, a spa and a pizza restaurant. In 2004, his first full year in real estate, he sold $16 million worth of property. He has purchased 13 properties in Nevada and Florida and has helped U.S. and international clients set up a fund for future investments.

Nose to the grindstone: Part of Murad’s success is his persistence. “A lot of times, things don’t get done until you call a couple of times,” he says.

Author, author: Murad has written a book, Manhattanizing Las Vegas, describing the vertical growth of the Las Vegas skyline and the opportunities that presents. Putting his thoughts into action, Murad has acquired land to build a high-rise condominium tower with retail in downtown Las Vegas. His goal is to have the tower sold out by his 30th birthday.
