Bruce Mulhearn moved from England to the US in 1958, when he was 18. By the time he was 30, he'd obtained his real-estate license and opened a one-man office in Bellflower, California. It didn't stay one-man for long, though. Instead, his tiny office blossomed into an 800-person real-estate operation, with 20 locations throughout Southern California. The specialists here not only connect their clients with hundreds of properties, ranging from cozy homes to commercial office buildings, but also train aspiring agents in the field, teaching them key skills such as distinguishing a half-bath from a sink in a closet.
