Scott MacDonald, manager of Prudential California Realty’s Newport Beach office, is pleased to welcome Shervin Rafii to his team. “Shervin’s educational background and professional work experience have prepared him for a successful career in real estate,” notes MacDonald. “He has great interpersonal skills and a solid understanding of customer service.”

Prior to his entry into real estate Rafii earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from California State University Fullerton. By leveraging the knowledge he acquired when completing his degree, he successfully co-founded and managed a company that specialized in resales and manufacturing.

From the time he spent as a business owner, Rafii developed exceptional interpersonal skills and a complex understanding of negotiating and marketing. Previously an office manager for a mortgage company, he decided to concentrate on residential sales in order to combine his love for the real estate industry with his affinity for working with people.

“I am enthusiastic about the chance to help my buyers find their piece of the American dream, or help my sellers get the maximum possible return on their investment,” says Rafii, who moved to Costa Mesa 23 years ago from Tehran, Iran.

Rafii enjoys playing soccer and practicing kickboxing in his spare time. He chose Prudential for the company’s outstanding brand recognition, advanced technology and comprehensive training curriculum. “To be the best, you’ve got to work with the best,” explains Rafii.
