For Egbarin, his sterling feat is thanks to his integrity and value. “Giving value, always and never stop giving value in anything you do and paying attention to every detail concerning your projects “
“Treat it as a child and nurture it properly. I go as deep as picking my bricks myself. I am that detailed.”
The challenges and victory

Egbarin, who has established himself as a successful luxury property developer has leveraged social media like Instagram and Facebook to further take his message across seamlessly.
In his words: “Instagram has played a major role in the growth of my brand. I must say.” Adding that the business niche that catapulted him to the apogee is his persistence and resilience in giving value.
