Have you always been in real estate? If no, what’s your background?
No I haven’t. Before real estate I was in the Health and Fitness industry. I have a huge passion in health and fitness after trying to pursue an Ironman Triathlon career and started my own Strength and Conditioning business, training endurance athletes as well as weight loss clients.

Why real estate?
Why not? I love the industry as every day is different and has its own challenges. I feel that real estate rewards those who have great discipline and determination while working with people achieve the next goal in their life. After competing in Triathlon for 6 years I learnt that being disciplined and determined is the best way to succeed and now moving into real estate I think it’s not too dissimilar to a lot of other things in life.

What made you want to become an agent?
Initially I wanted to do something that I could enjoy. I never wanted to be bound to a desk after being a personal trainer and real estate allows you to get out of the office for a number of different appointments. Following my Mum’s foots steps was also another factor in making my decision. She has had great success not only as an agent but becoming known within the community as a great person. Seeing this while growing up inspired me to follow her footsteps and hopefully one day I can be seen in the same light.

What qualities do you think you need to be a great agent?
Transparency, integrity and reliability. I believe that if you have these three qualities in the business you will be a great agent. Real estate agents can get a bad rap most of the time and I think having these qualities will separate you from the pack. I am grateful to have worked in a client based industry before moving into real estate so I pride myself on bring these qualities together in a very professional and personable manner with my clients.

What’s your favourite thing about your job?
Being a very goal orientated person myself I love helping people achieve their own goals. It was the same in personal training, there was nothing more rewarding than having a client set out a goal and see them achieve it. Real estate is not different, having a client call me or I call them and telling me they want to buy their first apartment or sell it in order to help buy their first home, they are all goals that people strive to achieve in life.

What are three things you couldn’t live without?
Family, my bike, Persian food

Where is your favourite place in the world? Whether it’s your couch at home or a cafe?
After completing the Hawaiian Ironman in 2015 my favorite place in the world would have to be Kona, on the big island of Hawaii.

Do you have a secret talent? If so what is it?
I used to be a handy golfer when I was 17-18, other than that I don’t really think so.

What do you love most about MB?
I love how MB is a well-oiled company that mixes family culture with precision structure to achieve great results across the board. When you are an agent at MB you also feel the support and belief from the top and that is a huge motivator.
