Negar Souza- Realtor
Negar Souza has been working in Real Estate for over 15 years. Her background is in interior design. She partnered up with her mom and together they have helped buyers & sellers in the areas of Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, Kensington, Richmond, Walnut Creek, Lamorinda and other parts of the East Bay Area. Recently she has made her move from Red Oak Realty to Berkeley Hills Realty and has an amazing supportive staff behind her.
In 2017, Negar has propelled herself into the top 5% of agents in the entire East Bay by volume and is now a Certified Residential Specialist, CRS, a designation given to only the top 3% of all agents Nation-wide. She is also a designated Senior Real Estate Specialist, SRES, offering more expertise to those who fall into the 55 or older generations.
Real estate is in Negar Souza’s blood. As the daughter of a real estate agent, she grew up spending her weekends at open houses and learning the ropes of the business. “I used to go with my mom on tours, even during the week,” says the Albany, Calif. native. “I learned first by observing, later by practice.” She received her BA in interior architecture from San Francisco State and became a licensed real estate agent in 2005.
Negar shares her mother's passion for the world of real estate. “There is always something exciting about this business,” she says. “I enjoy helping people with the entire process of buying or selling a home. It involves a lot more than simply finding a place to live.”
Negar brings a unique level of expertise, warmth and humor to every relationship and transaction. Beyond her youthful energy and comfort with technology and social media, she is a Certified Residential Specialist, CRS® and Senior Real Estate Specialist, SRES® which offer her a unique point of view to every transaction. “I love being able to look at every transaction from a different perspective,” she says. “Each client is unique, each set of circumstance, unique but every objective is the same and that’s doing the best for every client with integrity, tenacity and efficiency.”
Negar resides in the El Cerrito Hills with her husband and three beautiful children. She is extremely active within her community, sits on the advisory committee at Red Oak, volunteers at her children's schools and is affiliated with various local executive boards.
