Welcome Rob to the Team!

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

A two-year stint at a prestigious post-secondary business school in combination with a handful of sales positions led Rob Sadeghi to direct his education and interest into a career in real estate.

As one of Freeman Real Estate’s newest realtors, Sadeghi is looking ahead to growing his clients and he’s confident that Freeman is the place to do it.

“One of the things I liked about Freeman right away is that everyone from the top down is willing to help me out,” says the 25-year-old. “That, for me, makes the whole experience both easy and really exciting.”

Sadeghi researched a number of firms, including big-names franchises, but decided he liked the look and feel of Freeman, which stands out for its unique tight-knit family environment.

“I did not want to be another number and I knew Freeman would be the right fit,” he says. “I had a chance to sit down and chat with the owners and I really like their style, very laid back and easy going. For me, it was a great first impression.”

Born in Ottawa, Sadeghi is used to being the new kid on the block thanks to carpetbagger mother who moved Sadeghi to Germany when he was just a baby and who travelled to every country in Europe in the 11 years he lived abroad. While Sadeghi has seen more European towns and cities than most people his age, his favourites were Niece and Cologne thanks to the beautiful beaches in the former and the laid-back lifestyle in the latter.

He’s obviously inherited his mother’s adventurous spirit as he speaks German, Farsi, English and is currently learning Spanish simply because he enjoys the sound of the language.

Sadeghi studied business at York University for two years before deciding books and theories weren’t his cup of tea, at least where the business world is concerned. A former online sales rep for an internet vacation rental company and having previously sold prefab steel structures, he thought he’d make the move to real estate since the prospect of walking people through the biggest purchase they’ll ever make was appealing to him.

An avid athlete, Sadeghi loves boxing, football and hockey. He also likes to socialize and meet new people. An enthusiastic reader, Sadeghi enjoys everything from Time magazine to autobiographies about Michael Jordan and Martin Luther King to self-help books and non-fiction.

As a younger generation realtor, he uses social media platforms whenever he can to network. His next plan of attack is to start a door-to-door campaign to introduce himself to the neighbourhood and to explain to homeowners what he can do for them.

“There’s obviously lot of competition and you have to weed yourself out and show people why they need to work with you.”
