A mobile phone salesman who ditched his job peddling plans at shopping centres to try his hand at real estate is now selling million-dollar homes on Instagram.

Daniel Lee, 36, left the mundane gig at a Brisbane shopping centre and is now on track to be one of Australia’s property king pins.

Within the first 12 months in his new career he had made more than $260,000, before launching his own agency Plum Property out of his own bedroom in 2016.

But to get where he is today he spent a gruelling six months when he was 22 working in shopping centres begging people to change their phone providers.

‘It was commission only, so on a bad day i was earning nothing. I used to get $90 for a sale,’ Mr Lee told Daily Mail Australia.

He would work from 9am to 5pm on his feet, working 12 hour days standing up on days with late night shopping.

‘It was brutal,’ he said.

‘Most of the angry types would say get a real job! But other than people who would say something nasty would just ignore you. It was just rejection all day,’ he said.

He said it's hard to imagine his life how much his life would change over the past decade

‘It was a terrible job and you wouldn’t want to do it for more than six months. It took away all of my fear of rejection because you just stand there getting rejected all day.’
