Real estate is in Negar’s blood. As Feri’s daughter, 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, California native. “I learned first by observing, later by practice.”
She received her BA in interior architecture from San Francisco State, started as her mother’s assistant in 2003 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 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 Nationwide. She is also a designated Senior Real Estate Specialist, (SRES), offering more expertise to those who fall into the 55 or older generations. She is also a Sales Manager at Red Oak Realty.
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 offers her a unique point of view and “out-of-the- box” thinking to every transaction. “I love being able to look at every transaction from a different perspective,” she says. “Each client and each set of circumstances is unique, but the objective is the same: do 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, sat on the advisory committee at Red Oak, volunteers at her children’s schools and is affiliated with various local executive boards.
Their vast knowledge of the entire Bay Area and it’s real estate markets has landed them many accolades over the years. They were named Red Oak top producers in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, and won the manager’s award in 2007 and 2008. Negar was the top lead management agent in 2016, and they were the top-producing team company-wide in April 2017 and June 2018.
