Whether you’re buying or selling, your home is perhaps the most valuable asset you’ll own. I’ve worked in D.C. metropolitan real estate for the past 20 years. While building a deep knowledge of our community during that time I’ve also worked hard to cultivate the skills to help you protect and maximize that value.
My degree in civil engineering and my masters in business administration equip me to understand the details behind your purchase or sale, from current real estate trends to effective marketing, to finance options and favorable contract negotiation, to home inspection, structural integrity and renovation.
A student of the arts and a proud father and husband with established roots in our community, I’m also keenly aware that your house is more than just an asset – it’s your home. I work with sellers to present your home in its best light. I take time to get to know my buyers’ tastes and preferences to help match you to your ideal home, whether for the short- or long-term.
I pride myself on integrity, hard work and attention to detail. My relationship with my clients never ends at settlement, as evidenced by the fact that most of my new business comes from past client referrals. My goal is simply that you be delighted with our relationship, and that my efforts result in a smooth and successful transaction that’s best for you.
On a personal level, I enjoy life’s simple things: cooking meals for family and friends, listening to classical music, and traveling. I’ve been fortunate to be able to raise my family in the metro D.C. region. I look forward to meeting you and working to help you take your own next steps in our community.

Karim is extremely professional and knowledgeable on Real Estate in the area. It was refreshing to work with a Realtor who understands what home selling or buying means to a client and how emotional and stressful it can be. He also is delightful to work with. Karim not only sold our house in 5 days but he made sure he kept us informed and advised us on which contract to accept as he was able to get multiple offers. Karim contacted evey person who was interested and spoke to their agent to gage their feeling about the house etc. He also made sure the financing was all clear with the buyers banks. This helped us tremendously when it came to which contract we would accept and get the best contract. We had 2 houses up for sale in the same neighborhood and were nervous they were sitting in the market for a while but the staging and the follow up Karim did, proved to be what is needed to sell a house in 5 days! We would highly recommend Karim for any Real Estate transaction.

Karim is an exceptionally polished and effective professional and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I listed my home on short notice in late fall - a difficult time of year for a sale - and he worked extremely closely with me on all aspects of preparation, staging, showing, pursuit of potential buyers, and the final sale. He even - literally! - rolled up his sleeves and personally helped to stage the kitchen cupboards so that it looked like a magazine shoot! Due to his extraordinary diligence and targeted outreach to viable buyers, he was able to secure an offer for list price (over $1million) within 10 days. A truly extraordinary accomplishment, brought about by his hard work and deep knowledge of his profession, the market, and his clients. He is also incredibly personable and gracious, and made the entire experience extremely positive. I recommend him to all of my friends, and I am forever grateful to Karim for all that he did to make my home sale a tremendous success!

We have worked with many real estate agents over the years both in the DC area and other regions, and Karim stands out as one of the best. He is knowledgeable and informative, and manages the perfect balance between providing guidance and not being pushy.
He clearly has his client's best interest in mind, and looks at each transaction as a step forward in a long-term relationship. He also makes you feel as if you are his only client which is an exceptional feat given his workload. Almost 6 months have passed since we closed the deal, and he is still very much a part of our lives.
Once the contract is signed, he will move heaven and earth to get the deal closed. I really couldn't recommend him more highly.

As a real estate investor and rental property owner I have known and used Karim for over 12 years for different real estate needs and he has always been very knowledgeable, responsive, and focused on what is best for me based on his knowledge of the market, financial trends, and my personal goals. I highly recommend Karim!

Karim guided me through all the aspects of the home purchase. He helped me negotiate and find the best lender and mortgage rate. He managed to get me a great location at a great price, in addition to understanding what I was looking for. He explained all the aspect of the purchase process that made me comfortable to make the transition from being a renter- 13 years- to a being a new home owner. He was always a phone call away to answer any questions and made sure that the final details such as hiring a moving company or switching phone services have been all taken care of. I would recommend Karim to anyone
