List of nominees for the PICRA Board of Directors election on December 2, 2014.
Royal LePage Your Community Realty
I graduated with my MBA, which led to my position as Corporate Sales Manager with Bell Canada. However, my passion for Real Estate re-emerged due to my previous studies in Architecture. I’m admired by my Clients for my professional finesse whether buying or selling. I have the utmost confidence, very personable and a prudent negotiator. I believes that well informed Clients are happy Clients and I always know how to get the answers and information required in order for them to make the right decisions.
RE./MAX Hallmark Realty
Amir Eshtiaghi is a Real EstateSales representative at RE/MAX. Real estate has always been my number one passion in life. I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering and immediately started my career working with the best developers on a series of mid and large-scale construction projects. Later on, as I gradually got more engaged with the business aspects of real estate developments, I decided to advance my education and got a degree in Business Administration. This helped me leverage my entrepreneurial instincts in my profession.
In my 14+ years of experience, I have come to strongly believe that building a reputation for great service can only be realized by absolute dedication to carrying out my responsibilities towards my clients. I know for a fact that the best marketing accomplishment is to earn your recommendation, and I work hard to achieve that goal.
Homelife Frontier Realty Inc
I epitomize integrity, energy, hard work and creative service in every detail of my real-estate transaction. I used to be a member of Iranian law society and worked as a lawyer for more than 15 years. My experience in this area helped me to not only have ability to drive sales but also to help others to be more successful. I am known for my outstanding client service, 24/7 availability and as a skilled negotiator. I am a father of two children and married for more than 30 years. I love to read, run and sometime cook in my spare time.
Remax Right Choice Inc.
I believe I can serve on the board of directors because I am a passionate leader. My interpersonal and collaborative skills, which I have developed through my college and university teaching experience will help me organize the resources available at PICRA. Last, I have worked as the president of a financial company in the past. I value PICRA’s objectives to promote friendship, ongoing development, following the code-of-ethics and business opportunities for the real estate community.
