Given his vast experience as a successful and active entrepreneur along with fulfilling several positions in Corporate America (Deutsche Bank and UBS), Karan possesses a varied set of skills, which will add further value to your real estate transaction and experience, as a whole. He relates to every client as a “partner in success” and utilizes his vast network of contacts, peers, and business partners to meet your objectives – buy, sell, or rent a condo or co-op in NYC’s diversified and vibrant real estate market.
After graduating with a magna cum laude in Information Systems, Karan was recruited by Deutsche Bank in his senior year into DB’s renowned graduate training program. After five years of continued success, Karan vacated the corporate landscape to pursue his entrepreneurial interests. He started his own fashion brand by partnering with several overseas manufacturers in Asia and establishing a design team in New York.
He researched, negotiated, and signed a lease for a showroom space in 366 Fifth Ave in Fall 2009. Given the brand’s continued success, he later signed leases for two prime retail locations in Midtown East and Upper West Side to expand the retail division of his brand. Some of the brand’s clients include US national brands such as Chico’s, Urban Outfitters, Sears, Ross Stores, et al.
As a sole proprietor overseeing his fashion brand, his main job function remains the same when compared to the corporate world – meet with fashion buyers (or business users) to understand their current needs from a fashion accessories standpoint (or system requirements in DB) and respond with a set of samples (proposed system solution), which fit those requirements.
It is this apparent common denominator in both professions that positions Karan as a value added member to your real estate transaction – ability to understand your preferences and introduce only those living spaces which fit those needs. From helping new home buyers search for a place of residence, assisting clients in listing their property, securing rental units for relocating professionals, to identifying both commercial and residential investment properties, Karan will help drive your search forward in a strategic and resilient manner in order to make a substantial impact to your real estate experience.
Although knowledgeable about the NYC real estate market, Karan specializes in Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Greenwich Village, Financial District, and Murray Hill neighborhoods.
Karan moved with his family at the age of 10 from Ludhiana, India to New York. He grew up in Queens, went to Archbishop Molloy High School, and eventually moved to NYC for college. He’s currently a resident of Manhattan’s Upper West Side neighborhood.
Coming from a close-knit Indian family, Karan considers himself a spiritual being, who believes in karma and strongly believes in feeling good, doing good and being good.
