The real estate and economy crisis in 2008 may have put lots of establishments out of business but real estate agent and entrepreneur, Sahar Barati, was able to come out of it even stronger. She evaluated her competition and came up with a strategy to provide clients with customer service that they can only get from her. She earned a degree in interior design and has been working as a residential developer and interior decorator for 20 years now in Vancouver, Canada, on behalf of Sahar development International Enterprise Inc, a family owned business. The other industry she is heavily rooted in is the fashion industry. She entered after starting her middle eastern-inspired jewelry brand, Sahar BMD.

She has a true passion for homes and what they represent, her entrepreneurial mindset has allowed her to turn her passion into a career. Her decision to enter the real estate industry was inspired by her passion for the design of homes and what they represent. Sahar always pays close attention to the details that are involved in a home from the layout of the property to every design element. Her dedication to providing her clients with the perfect home is the reason why she has been able to create such a successful real estate career.

After only a year of selling properties (2008), the Rookie of the Year award was presented to her after she sold the most properties within her entire metropolitan area. She has been a member of the Medallion Club for 11 years, this membership is only available to the top 10% of real estate agents in the greater Vancouver area.

She also works with World Vision Canada and a Children’s Hospital in Vancouver to provide different types of donations as well as child sponsoring. Even with all of this on her plate, she is still able to juggle the responsibilities that come with managing Sahar BMD, her middle eastern-inspired jewelry. While on her trips around the middle east she enjoyed all of the design elements in their clothing and accessories which is why she wanted to recreate it. She is native to the middle east and has always enjoyed her culture which is why she wanted to share it with others.
