Hi Folks! I am Sunil Advani , “Neil” as most of you may know me. Born on 1st May 1978 in Mumbai – the “City of Dreams” – India, I was raised in a middle class family with my elder sister. I completed high school at St Francis D’Assisi High School and went on to pursue a 2 year diploma in Civil Engineering. I soon discovered that I was trade-oriented, and so I chose to finish by graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce. After finishing my college education, I started my career as a Sales representative in “Xerox & Company” selling photo-copiers, as my strength has always been communicating with people. There, I gained valuable experience in customer interaction.
I always aimed to soar high, so when a random conversation between my mom and her best friend started about a lucrative job opportunity in Sint-Maarten, my dreams turned into reality. I came to this beautiful paradise island Sint Maarten in 1999, and wow it’s been a pleasant and wonderful journey of 22 years at this place which is now home.
I met my beautiful wife Hayesha in 2004, when she came here on vacation. It was love at first sight. Being beautiful & smart she is also a great cook, home-maker and mother of our only son Abhi-the king of my heart. When it comes to my hobbies and interests, I love to travel to India to see my dad, visit new places & try new cuisines. On weekends, watching a nice movie or Tv show with my family is my favorite past-time.
In 2008, I was honored to become a part of “Grand family” and I take pride in saying that I have excelled under the guidance of Sunny Mahtani, who possesses a strong work ethic, and my senior colleagues. Our owner Deepak Sakhrani is truly a kind-hearted gentleman who has always treated us like family. I can proudly say “Grand Rocks”. Over the years, I have built a strong rapport with my clients who have now become my close friends. At Grand, we build relationships!
