Founded by real estate industry experts Mona and Saadiah in 2018, the Kamal Fowlkes Team always adheres to three core values in every business interaction: honesty, integrity, and transparency. Referred to as the HIT list, these guiding principles dictate Mona and Saadiah’s behavior with clients, as they seek to build lifelong relationships based on mutual trust.
Their mission is to help their clients find their place in the world, be they sellers, buyers or renters. Their personable, friendly natures allow them to establish rapport with their clients quickly and easily, thereby enabling them to successfully facilitate each real estate transaction with little stress.
Mona and Saadiah both reside in New York City’s most populous borough, Brooklyn. Mona has lived in Brooklyn for more than a decade. She's incredibly knowledgeable about its many enclaves and ever-evolving market. She delivers total transparency to the business of buying and selling real estate. She's a true people person, a great listener, and she lends a keen eye for design and a sense of adventure to everything she does. Raised in Calgary, with roots from Pakistan, Mona has an international worldview that enables her to relate to clients from all walks of life. She earned her BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and her MFA from Parsons School of Design. Prior to real estate, Mona taught art and design as an adjunct professor at BMCC and Parsons, and art continues to be integral to her being. She has a studio in Bushwick and regularly exhibits her work both nationally and internationally. Mona resides in Bedford-Stuyvesant where she begins each day with Ashtanga yoga practice, and her bicycle is her preferred mode of transportation 365 days a year.
With Brooklyn roots that stretch back more than a century, Saadiah offers an unprecedented understanding of the borough's past, present and future. Born in Clinton Hill and raised in Bed-Stuy, prior to real estate, Saadiah was a teacher in the city. He later moved to Germany where he taught English, primarily to businesspeople, including many in real estate. While learning the industry terms and concepts for his students, he became passionate about pursuing the profession himself. Today, working closely with trusted partner Mona as a member of the Kamal Fowlkes Team, Saadiah adheres to the core values of honesty, integrity and transparency — the HIT list, as he calls it — in everything he does. As a longtime teacher, Saadiah is incredibly adept at educating clients on the marketplace. His extensive time overseas has granted him the ability to connect to people easily with active listening and a real interest in their needs. He has an entrepreneurial spirit, and he's known among his clients for his willingness to go above and beyond to meet their goals. Saadiah is proud to live in a Bed-Stuy brownstone home that has been in his family for more than 100 years. In his free time, he enjoys recording music with his professional musician father.
