Beth Gittleman - Founder

Beth began her New York City real estate career in 2003 and works as an associate broker.  During her career she also served as the Head of Sales and Development for a boutique brokerage in Manhattan where she spent 6 years creating and building the sales and development department of the firm.  A native New Yorker, she is a resident of the Upper West Side, where she has lived for 26 years. She is known for her work with sellers, developers, and buyers and operates with a simple philosophy that she has dubbed “Couch Karma," which is her belief that no one engaged in a real estate transaction should ever question if they are getting the service they deserve from their broker or brokerage.  Beth is a member of REBNY (Real Estate Board of NY) where she served as twice-elected co-chair to the Upper Manhattan REBNY committee.  She is also a member of NYRS (New York’s premiere real estate designation) where she served on the Executive Committee as the Director of Education. Beth holds a Certified Negotiation Expert designation, and is a volunteer fundraiser for Trinity Place Shelter.

Daoud Heidami - Founder
Daoud is a native Texan living and working in New York for almost two decades. Real estate began for him in alignment with his successful acting career and spans the entire NYC landscape.
