What does Manny Khoshbin do?

Manuchehr, or Manny, Khoshbin is an Iranian real estate investor, entrepreneur, and businessman. He is the president and CEO of commercial real estate company The Khoshbin Company.

He’s also well-known on social media for showing off his exorbitant car collection and lavish lifestyle.

How did Manny Khoshbin get rich?

Manny Khoshbin is the very definition of a rags to riches story, going from minimum wage jobs to living the “American dream”.

Khoshbins’ parents relocated him and his four siblings to the US when he was 14 to escape from the war happening in his home country at the time. Upon arriving in America, they had to live in a car until their father could get a job and find a place for them to stay.

Manny Khoshbin’s first job

At the age of 16, Manny began working at K-Mart collecting carts and mopping floors for $3.15/hour. He moved into a door-to-door sales job, selling candy and nuts but soon realised he could do it himself and earn more.

So, during his last year of high school, Khoshbin started his first business where he bought food in bulk and sold it door-to-door. However, he had to close it when he was visited by a health inspector and told he needed a permit he wasn’t able to afford.

At age 20, his father’s friends suggested he invest all his assets in a gas station at only a 10% down payment. Keen to make money, Manny sunk all his savings into the endeavour however soon he realised it was a scam and he went bankrupt.

When did Manny Khoshbin get into real estate?

With no money or job, Khoshbin took a job working at a mortgage company as a loan officer. After only 6 months there Manny decided he needed a change and obtained a real estate licence, and started a mortgage and realty company a few months later.

From there he started to invest in distressed and bank-owned property.  

Almost 3 decades later, Manny has privately bought and sold over $1bn in real estate with no outside capital.

His company, The Khoshbin Company today owns commercial real estate covering 7 states and over 2.5 million square feet.

The real estate mogul made his mark yet again, purchasing a 12-story building in Houston for the third time since 2005. His strategy? Buying at lows and selling at highs. According to him, real estate should be a retirement plan, regardless of one’s income. It’s a fundamental part of any financial plan.

Manny Khoshbin Family

Manny Khoshbin married Iranian Canadian actress Leyla Milani in June 2011 and has two children with her, a son Enzo (born 2012) and a daughter Priscilla (born 2016).

Investing in family vacations and staycations is key for him. He firmly believes they’re the best investment one can make. His social media is filled with pictures of family vacations at Lake Como, Mykonos, and Milan. 

In August 2023, he had an F1 racing shoot with his wife at Wynn Las Vegas, took delivery of a Porsche 911 Dakar, and later enjoyed a joy ride. 

He also celebrated his marriage anniversary on July 22nd, along the Italy coast, demonstrating his deep appreciation and respect for his wife.

Manny Khoshbin’s wife

Leyla Milani is a Canadian-American actress and model born to Iranian parents known for her roles in WWE, Deal or No Deal, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

From 2005 to 2009, Milani was a model on the hit gameshow Deal or No Deal, known predominantly for her signature hairstyle that resembled a lioness’s mane. Milani held the number 13 box throughout her time on the show, and although 13 is considered to be an unlucky number, Milani was nicknamed “Lucky Leyla” because her case contained 6-digit figures and on eight separate occasions contained the $1,000,000 top prize.

Since moving away from the screen, Milani has been able to capitalise on her glowing reputation for her hair, launching a luxury haircare company specializing in “premium, 100% human hair clip-in or (clip-on) extensions.”

Leyla Milani uses Instagram to promote her business to her 1.7m followers.
