His wealth has allowed him to gain high valued assets such as homes and luxury cars. He is also a philanthropist during his free time. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Manny spent his childhood in Iran, growing up with four siblings, until in 1985 his family decided to move to the US, wanting to escape from the war in Iran which saw a few of his relatives being badly injured, and so to avoid the same fate happening to Manny and the other children.
He had a lot of difficulty adjusting during his first few years in the US, especially since he was not very familiar with the language and had to take English classes at his school. Other kids also bullied him, but he didn’t know the meaning of many of the derogatory words they used on him. During high school, he had his first business-type experience when he sold goods at a swap meet during weekends. At the age of 16, he got his first job, working at the Santa Ana Kmart, mopping the floor and collecting shopping carts in the parking lot.
Khoshbin quickly became one of the top employees at Kmart, and within a year was made a sporting goods assistant manager. However, he didn’t want to stay in a job that was just about salary, so he left to look for better opportunities, and began working in a multi-level marketing firm selling snacks from door to door. Within the first two months, he became the highest revenue salesman for the company. Sometime later, he discovered a way to reduce his costs to earn more money, and realizing that, he started his own business at the age of 18 during his last year of high school.
He leased a small office, and began his own business of re-selling various items which he had bought for a bargain price. Eventually, his business was shut down due to the lack of proper approval that would satisfy the health code, but straight away one of the tire shops he went in business hired him to work as an assistant manager for a year, after which he left as he still wanted to venture into business for himself.

In 1991, he was approached by a friend of his father about purchasing a gas station; he was offered one at just a 10% down payment, and jumped at the opportunity, however, it turned out that the offer was a fraud and he lost his savings. No longer having any money, he tried his hand at getting a real estate license the following year, which led him to gain a job as a loans officer for a mortgage company. In six months, he began his own realty company to allow him to invest in distressed bank-owned properties.
Even though there was prejudice against him due to his descent and the language barrier, he soon achieved success in his field. His wealth grew tremendously over the years, and he started collaborating with other companies as well. His Khoshbin Company now has a commercial real estate portfolio covering six states and around 2.2 million square feet. He has also ventured into other business opportunities, and wants to have an enterprise that spans numerous fields.
