Laguna Beach, CA, November 17, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Whether in the kitchen or working with his real estate clients, Kamal Al-Faqih knows how to cook up great results. After 20 years as owner and head chef of his catering company in Washington, D.C., featuring Lebanese cuisine, Kamal has joined the Laguna Beach office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties and followed his heart to pursue his lifelong passion in real estate.
“I established my catering career by building trust with my clients, providing them with exactly what they asked for, and making their experience stress-free. I am proud that a large part of my success was due to repeat clients, and their trust in referring me to others,” said Kamal, a D.C. native who has lived in Laguna Niguel for nine years.
“I am a patient person who takes the time to listen, learn what my clients are asking for, and meet, if not exceed, their expectations.”
“Kamal gained personal real estate knowledge by purchasing and selling homes his family has lived in over the years,” branch manager Jim Vermilya said. “This hands-on experience gave him a complete understanding of how important it is to the client to find an agent who will listen to their goals. We’re glad he chose us as a starting point for his new career–and the occasional desserts he’ll be whipping up for the office!”
“My goal is to be the best real estate agent I can be, I want to help people” said Kamal, who also speaks Arabic. “To do that, I felt I needed to begin my new career at one of the best companies in the business. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties is a name that is synonymous with quality, integrity, and unmatched name recognition worldwide. I know I will accomplish my goals here.”
In conjunction with his career as a chef, Kamal was invited in 2012 to be part of the Emmy Award-winning, 13-part PBS documentary “Arab American Stories.” The series highlights the diversity of the Arab-American experience and traces the impact of various groups in American institutions and public life. The documentary series profiles entrepreneurs, innovators, educators, artists, doctors, lawyers, and executives while sharing with viewers the difference each made in their communities.
“I am proud to have been one of the 39 Arab-Americans nationally to be included in this inspiring series,” Kamal said.
