Megan Abbasian and Ali Bashiri have each worked in sales for almost 20 years, and although they have ten years of combined experience in real estate, they still get excited when their clients buy or sell their dream home – especially newcomers.

“Nothing makes us happier than helping our clients and seeing how happy they are at the end of the sales process, especially newcomers and first-time home buyers. It’s very motivating for us to help them feel that they are home in Canada!”

Now successful immigrants, Megan and Ali were once newcomers to Canada too. They had thriving careers in sales back home in their home country of Iran, but when they came to Canada they had to study to obtain the necessary licensing requirements, etc, and it felt like they were starting from scratch again. And for a period of time, they even wondered if it had been the right decision to immigrate to Canada.

“But now after many years, we have realized what a great decision we made and how grateful we are to live in a country where we can reach our goals faster and be proud of living here and helping each other,” Megan said.

Their approach is centred on a technique of combining their previous experiences with up-to date and accurate knowledge of today’s GTA housing market.

Ali is an engineer by profession, who uses his sales and marketing background and passion for his work to relentlessly pursue what his clients are looking for until they get the outcome they expect. Megan has a postgraduate degree in economics and her knowledge of market trends, combined with her expertise and passion for sales, gives her a client service edge.

They have helped all sorts of client demographics — families wanting to settle down in their dream home, or looking to sell their house with minimum hassle — including newcomers, first time home buyers, investors, growing families wanting to upsize, older people wanting to downsize, or buyers who are interested in pre-construction projects.

Apart from sponsoring the CCS Gala, they give back to community by donating part of their commissions to non-profits and charities, such Sick Kids, the Canadian Cancer Society, and various women’s shelters.
