Born in Saudi Arabia to a senior corporate executive father and artist mother born and raised in Paris, France, Hakim as well as his identical twin brother were exposed to an international education from an early age.
With that being said, Hakim comes from a generation of traditional business values that reflect the elements shared by Berkshire Hathaway inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Warren Buffet. Framed in Hakim’s office you will find a quote on the wall from the oracle of Omaha himself – “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago”.
Hakim specializes in real estate investment acquisitions and consults and advises his clients how to best grow their portfolio in domestic and international markets offering strategies and a detailed market analysis to gain maximum returns on investments. He refers to his clients as “guests” as when we invite guests to our home, we treat them with a white glove service that is beyond the standard we are a custom too. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has the structure, international network and leadership to cater and resolve the most complex of emerging market curves. Being a globally recognized and trusted brand, the quality and solutions offered are second to none when you partner with a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices broker.
Prior to real estate Hakim was an entrepreneur, having co-founded a successful restaurant chain in Quebec. He credits his wife (who is a broker as well) for being the primary influence to his love of real estate – It was a question of timing before Hakim would apply his skills and talent to his true calling. He has also quietly donated his time and sponsorship to multiple foundations regarding the research and development of Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Health Awareness and protection of animal
rights. He believes in the great words of boxer Muhammed Ali where the rent you pay on earth is your servitude and contribution to your peers and the role you play to develop a better society.
Outside of work, Hakim is an avid Ferrari enthusiast and jokes about being a Formula 1 driver in his past life – a guarantee he is never late to his appointments. He enjoys boxing, stand-up comedy, sailing, traveling, scuba diving and has a love of mid-century modernist architecture, mainly the works of Ludwig Mies van der Roche.
