For 22 years Afarin has served as a Sales Representative, Broker and friend to her wide network of trusted and loyal clients. Equipped with a unique mastery over each of the most challenging domains in Real Estate, Afarin has a proven record of getting the job done exactly the way her clients envision it, and no less. It becomes immediately clear to anyone who meets her that Afarin is among the rare professionals who truly thrives off making her client’s dreams a reality. With each successful transaction boosting her energy and love for her craft, her continued effectiveness in the field is but a testament to the passion that propels her forward each day.
Afarin’s dedicated approach to Real Estate transactions are rooted in her years of practicing perfectionism and attention to detail as a professional photographer and gallery curator in Montreal. As a first generation Iranian-Canadian woman, her early days in the art world required her to cultivate her negotiating skills to rise to the top. With a youth spent in between England, Seattle and Vancouver, Afarin’s optimistic adaptability and passion for facing challenges ensured her immense success as an artist and manager with razor sharp focus and quick wit. After leaving Montreal for Arizona, she decided to direct her relentless ambition to conquering the world of Real Estate to give her daughter the best upbringing possible. As it turned out, Afarin’s PhD in Fine Arts and her fascination with global cultures quickly launched her to success in Arizona’s New Homes industry, where she developed a trusting clientele who continue to consider her as their advisor for all Real Estate matters. After becoming the state’s top earning agent in residential and commercial sales, Afarin’s tireless drive to learn and grow lead her to try her hand in the challenging world of land development and acquisition. Less than a year after her first deal, she was negotiating one of the largest real estate developments in Southern Arizona; bringing a female head to an all male world. Looking to be closer to her family and introduce her daughter to the arts and culture she so cherishes, Afarin moved to Toronto and faced the Real Estate market head on.
Today, Afarin’s position in the top 1% of RE/MAX agents* in the entire nation speaks for itself. Always looking for ways to bring creativity and life to her work, she is now working with her team to bring a distinct approach to Real Estate advertising that reflects her passions for film, books, travel and of course dogs. Her clients throughout the years have always maintained that her rare multifaceted skill set is perhaps the key to her success: a Broker with an honest face and a fearless, never tiring mind; a Broker that is always encouraging her clients to dream bigger, transforming their wildest ambitions into reality. Afarin is a Broker who is changing the way we think about Real Estate, one happy client at a time.
