Shafaq was raised in Southern California but moved to the Bay Area in 2008. She’s been lucky to call San Francisco home for the first few years and now lives in midtown San Jose with her husband. She loves Silicon Valley for its energy, diversity and the inspirational nature of the tech industry — there are never ideas not worth exploring, and entrepreneurship can strike at any age… she loves that there are no limits to what can be achieved!
The opportunity to help people make the right decisions with the biggest transaction of their lives speaks to the advisor in her. She’s been the “go-to” person for friends, family, and colleagues her whole life, the one who offers advice, consults on decisions and steps in as the “fixer” when things go south. She’s always made decisions by gathering information and analyzing data so it is her goal to impart a similar experience on her clients where they feel educated and in the power seat with all their real estate decisions. At the end of the day, she is the one you want on your team: an excellent listener, strong negotiator, and tireless advocate for her clients so she can ensure that her clients get the best deal in every transaction.
Shafaq also has a deep love for interior design, art, and architecture so real estate has been a natural fit!
In today’s fast-paced real estate market, Shafaq understands the crucial role effective marketing strategies play in the success of buying or selling a home. What differentiates her is her ability to offer unique two-fold expertise to her clientele: market knowledge and award-winning marketing background. With a Bachelor's degree in Business Marketing and a double major in International Business, she brings more than 10 years of marketing, business, and real estate experience. Paired with an unparalleled commitment to providing the highest level of service for each buyer and seller, she empowers, educates and supports her clients through every step of the process.
She goes by the name "Ritzy Realtor®" because she put the “ritz” in every transaction! White glove service shouldn’t only be reserved for high-end luxury clientele and let’s face it — whatever stage of life you’re in, this is a big purchase. For that reason alone, she believes your transaction deserves to be treated with the utmost priority and highest level of customer service. Yes, that means the first-time homebuyer purchasing a one bedroom condo as well as the seasoned seller listing a high-end luxury home in the hills. Every experience deserves to feel “ritzy” because every client who entrusts Shafaq with their real estate needs deserve nothing less.
Shafaq spends her free time exploring the Bay Area, checking out new restaurants to satisfy her inner foodie, and she’s always had a passion for fashion! Shafaq and her husband love new adventures and are certified PADI scuba divers. They have a serious case of wanderlust and try to travel as often as their schedules permit.
They also love DIY home improvement and tackle a number of interior design projects as they are constantly inspired to modernize their space. Whether that means building a barn door from scratch, painting their kitchen cabinets white or installing their kitchen backsplash, they are always up for a challenge. Ask her about what they’ve done in the past and she’s more than happy to share her experiences!
