As President of Quintessentially Estates Los Angeles, a lifestyle real estate agency, Aram Afshar acts as the head broker,leading a team of agents and managing daily operations. Expanding his property and clientele services, Afshar merged his former real estate business,Afshar Properties, in late 2015 with the world-renowned luxury real estate company Quintessentially Estates, licensed under Coldwell Banker Previews International. Through Afshar’s foresight in launching an office on the West Coast and combining his affluent network,this partnership has proven to be a major benefit to his existing clientele. Sellers not only profit from exposure to an exclusive, high-net-worth, international audience,but buyers who work with Afshar receive a gifted membership to the luxury lifestyle concierge service Quintessentially upon close of sale. “I don’t know any other firm that can offer what we can – the complete package of luxury real estate and the elite lifestyle through Quintessentially’s ultimate white glove service,”says Afshar, who brings over 15 years of experience in the real estate industry including finance,development, and over $550 million in sales. Having worked in Los Angeles’ premium real estate market since 2001 and residing in the city his entire life, Afshar has a true understanding of Southern California’s lifestyle with an expertise at seeking out a client’s desired location throughout Los Angeles’ various neighborhoods.
Born and raised in Beverly Hills, CA, Afshar graduated from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business in 2001 with a degree in business and an emphasis in real estate finance and entrepreneurship. Afshar credits his parents for his inspiration to pursue a real estate career.As business owners them selves,they instilled in him since a young age that investment produces wealth. His drive, independent mentality, and eagerness area few of the key qualities that helped shape Afshar’s career trajectory. Shortly after graduating college, he assisted in launching and managing a boutique brokerage firm in Los Angeles, Mortgage USA, expanding the company to over 60 employees and learning the ins-and-outs of home loans. At the beginning of 2008,he foresaw a huge disruption in the real estate market and decided to change focuses from mortgages to sales. By 2009, he launched his own business, Afshar Properties, and through mentor-ship,resourcefulness, and learning through the process, he not only closed 100s of sales in Southern California’s luxury real estate market but helped many homeowners with distress properties during the country’s recession. In 2011, he joined Coldwell Banker Brokerage’s number one producing office in Beverly Hills, quickly becoming one of the top three agents through numerous multi-million dollar sales and his understanding of every facet in the real estate business. Currently, Afshar is developing plans to expand Quintessentially Estates on the West Coast,launching offices in San Diego and San Francisco in the next year.
When he’s not after his next sale, Afshar enjoys competing in soccer and going on scenic hikes in the city with his interior designer wife, Claudia, and their two young daughters.
