Entrepreneur and finance wunderkind Fahad Ghaffar is reaching new heights by creating an empire of private yet affordable luxury properties. After graduating from the University of Virginia in 2005 with a degree in finance, Ghaffar took a job in investment banking. As he built solid relationships with important players in the financial world he also learned the ins and outs of the real estate market. He discovered a new niche market and started buying neglected off-market properties directly from banks, lenders and private equity investors and transformed them into thriving residential complexes. “It made financial sense,” said Ghaffar. “We can create a quality product while simultaneously protecting buyers from volatile markets.”
