After studying law, Ayda ended up working in tax, but she didn't find the satisfaction she was looking for. When she came into contact with real estate, she was fascinated by the combination of the social and substantive aspects that this sector has to offer. When she was approached to work for RNHB, she was charmed by RNHB through the interviews. Why was that? And how does she experience working at RNHB now?

Although Ayda wasn't actively seeking a new job, RNHB caught her attention after a few conversations. The company's unique character and ambition impressed her. "RNHB is an uncommon type of company. It's not a bank, but a financer that specifically focuses on real estate. I realized I might not come across another company like RNHB again."

Currently, Ayda works in the Real Estate Advisory department at RNHB and enjoys the variety of her work. Her clients come from different sectors of the real estate industry. "From hotels to transformations or shopping centres, the requests differ on a weekly basis."
