Born and raised in the beautiful city of Edmonton, I can proudly say this is the city I know and love. As a first-generation Canadian, I quickly grasped the idea of hard work and commitment from my parents, who moved over from the Middle East in the early 1970s and did everything in their power and sacrificed so much to ensure their kids had an education and future.
Jimmy was really patient and helpful with narrowing down our needs
It was really a nice experience with Jimmy, being a first time home buyer, he let us decide at our pace with him always available if we have questions and doubts
After Graduating High School, I immediately realized my natural ability to engage with people and my passion for meeting and helping new people. Shortly after High School, I enrolled in a 2 Year Finance Diploma at NAIT while working Full Time at TELUS. Juggling Post Secondary and work was a challenge on its own; however, I enjoyed every minute of it because it taught me hard work and independence, and I can honestly say it made my parents proud.
Post graduation from NAIT, I grew my career at TELUS from a Retail level position to a senior level Corporate Account Manager within 5 years. In a fast-paced environment with so many challenges, I had 1 choice: to better myself every day and achieve success in every possible way. In doing so, I was recognized year after year in the top sales category for sales across Canada. After 10 years at TELUS, my heart was telling me I needed to do more and shortly after that, my brother, a successful Real Estate agent for over 15 years in the Edmonton area, introduced me to Real Estate. That was over 10 years ago, and I can honestly say I can’t imagine doing anything else. Everything happens for a reason, and Real Estate has allowed me to meet new people, develop lifelong relationships and, best of all, have that excitement of being an integral part of people’s biggest investment decision.
My biggest drive in life is providing for my family as my parents did for me. I’m a proud father of 2 amazing children and married to my best friend, who has been my rock and biggest supporter throughout our 7-year marriage. Raising my 2 new children and seeing them grow is what keeps me striving to do better and is the reason I get up in the morning each and every single day.
Outside of work, I fill my time with my family, travelling the world, being active in Basketball, Football and maintaining a healthy lifestyle at the Gym.
I’m very fortunate to be able to do what I love, helping people fulfill their Real Estate goals.
