STEVE MOHSENI – Team Lead
At age sixteen, I couldn’t have imagined where my life would take me; I had just graduated high school in Tehran and was in pursuit of a higher education at a more credible institution, preparing to travel across the globe to attend Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.
When I graduated with my master’s degree in 1984, the economy was not in the best shape. I was a mechanical engineer in a city with seven refineries, hoping to land a job while seasoned engineers were getting laid off. I needed to head in a new direction, so I decided to become an entrepreneur, began importing blank VHS tapes from Hong Kong and selling them door-to-door at local video stores. Nobody had heard of me, but I worked hard to fight the big-name brands and carve a place for myself in the market. That initial effort paid off, as my self-made experience in sales and marketing allowed me to continue my professional growth in several different jobs.
Eventually, my path led me to California, where I earned a position with Inacom Information Systems, a Fortune 500 company in Silicon Valley. This company was a technology aggregator and I was a business development consultant, helping companies lower their cost of ownership in technology, standardize their computer systems, and provide ongoing support for them. With lots of hard work and tenacity, I found myself landing contracts as big as $66 million—a far cry from selling VHS tapes door-to-door!
Those were some exciting years, but the business was unpredictable. By 1998, my company decided to acquire its biggest competitor that was already servicing most of my target business accounts. I found my role diminishing and realized that another change was on the horizon.
It was more than ten years prior that I had purchased my first piece of property: a 674 ft2 one-bedroom condo in Sunnyvale. As an engineer, I was analytical about the benefits of homeownership, and as an entrepreneur, I was committed to create wealth through real estate. In 1997, my wife Mersedeh and I moved to Pleasanton and bought our home, in a family-oriented community where we still reside with our two children. Since I had acquired detailed knowledge around real estate and mortgages, I always enjoyed helping friends and family with the process of buying a home.
As my position at Inacom Information Systems continued to fade away, I found my new passion around real estate and a career as a Realtor® in late 1998. In the years since, I have worked to embody professional excellence with the utmost integrity, assisting each and every one of my clients in pursuit of home ownership.
FARIDA CHAPMAN –
I was born and raised in Indonesia before moving to Singapore when I was 17 years old. I grew up on a small island, so I was eager to explore a big city. Plus, I wanted to learn Chinese and English. I went to school there and received a high school level education in computer programming. After that, my next move was to San Francisco’s city college. My parents were 100% against it at first. I convinced them it would be beneficial for me to go and eventually got their blessing. After graduating from City College, I went on to Chico State and got my computer science degree. My first job out of college was in the Silicon Valley as an engineer until I was unexpectedly laid off in 2001. My husband and I weren’t sure what we would do to replace my income. Since I had just had our first baby the year before, I needed a career that would provide my family with freedom and flexibility. I received my real estate license in 2001 and have never looked back. The first few years were difficult, but I persevered and am now excelling in my field. I look forward to serving each of my clients in all their real estate needs.
