With a diverse background in real estate, construction, marketing and event promotion, my business mindset has led me to become a successful Realtor with Century 21 Amber Realty and excel as a Contractor and Project Manager for Deco Construction, both in Torrance, Calif.

A native of Tehran, Iran, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a Marketing emphasis from California State University, Long Beach where I’m an alumni of the Beta Psi chapter of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity.

Committed to community service, I am an active member of The “Original” Rotary Club of Torrance and will soon be serving as president. My past roles have included secretary, PR chair and fundraising chair. Further, I use my marketing degree to support all of his business ventures.

At Deco Construction, I manage a myriad of projects and work with local building and safety departments on a variety of residential and commercial construction projects. I joined the industry in 1998 as a junior foreman for F.E. Designer construction where I learned the contracting business.

Likewise, I obtained my Real Estate Sales license in 2005. Working with buyers and sellers for the past six years, I’ve developed a deep understanding of the real estate market as well as the relationship between the real estate and construction industries. I am truly looking forward to receiving my Broker’s license and launching Locally Managed, a residential property management company where I will offer full service leasing, maintenance and property management.

In addition, I recently launched an emerging technology and investment blog at www.tech-swag.com where I share insights on emerging technology as well as investment opportunities in the growing tech sector.
