OUR STORY AS TOLD BY Aram Afshar
Broker OwnerTELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR PROPERTY CAREER.
I began my real estate career shortly after graduating from the University of Southern California. Over the course of 12 years, I have been a strong negotiator in many sides of the business including finance, development, and of course, sales. I bring a high level of expertise to my high-net-worth clients from my experience in running my own real estate brokerage prior to joining Coldwell Banker. I have closed hundreds of intricate real estate sales and my clients include a diverse mix of entertainers, lawyers, property developers and entrepreneurs.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO PARTNER WITH, AND REBRAND YOUR BUSINESS AS, QUINTESSENTIALLY ESTATES?
My goal is to provide every advantage possible to my clients. Quintessentially Estates and its affiliated companies offer unmatched access to an affluent and international clientele for my sellers.
Clients also receive the ultimate white glove service from Quintessentially as the world’s leading luxury concierge company. I don’t know any other real estate firm that can offer what we now can - the complete package of luxury real estate and the elite lifestyle to match it.
THERE HAS BEEN MUCH RECENT EMPHASIS ON INTERNATIONAL BUYERS IN THE UNITED STATES. ARE YOU FINDING THIS TO BE TRUE?
In our business, we analyze the nationalities of buyers at various price levels. While the majority of $5M+ buyers are from the U.S., we are definitely noticing a big uptick of international buyers.
HOW DOES QUINTESSENTIALLY ESTATES PROVIDE ITS SELLERS ACCESS TO THIS INTERNATIONAL MARKET?
When a seller lists their home with us, we create a marketing package that is distributed to Quintessentially offices throughout the world. Our offices in London, Hong Kong, Dubai, Moscow, Monaco, and many more, promote our exclusive listings to their high-net-worth member database.
WHAT IS THE CONCIERGE SERVICE THAT QUINTESSENTIALLY ESTATES OFFERS TO ITS CLIENTS?
One of our major competitive advantages is our ability to offer our clients exclusive access to Quintessentially’s luxury lifestyle services. Upon closing a sale with us (and sometimes before the sale), they are gifted a private membership. Last-minute restaurant reservations, VIP events, and world-class travel benefits are just some of the perks of membership.
WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN QUINTESSENTIALLY ESTATES AND COLDWELL BANKER?
Quintessentially Estates is under the Coldwell Banker brokerage. Coldwell Banker is a proven name that has immense reach both nationally and internationally. Clients that work with us have the best of both worlds, and truly benefit from two powerhouses in Coldwell Banker and Quintessentially.
