Sahar Barati is a rising entrepreneur making waves in Vancouver and beyond.

As a real estate professional, Sahar has completed over 500 transactions, and has been in the top one percent of agents three times in her 14 years. In her first year selling (2008) in Vancouver, Sahar was recognized as the top-selling agent in the entire metropolitan area, winning a distinguished Rookie of the Year award. She’s also been recognized in the top 10% of agents in the greater Vancouver area for an incredible 11 years in a row. 

“I have a degree in Interior Design. I’ve been doing real estate, residential development, and home decor for our construction company, Sahar International Enterprise Inc. for 20 years now,” she explains.

Sahar is a case study in perseverance, something she preaches to other entrepreneurs. “Never give up on your goals. Work hard for your dreams and even if they don’t go well at the beginning, just continue to work hard.”

In addition to her passion for real estate and home design, Sahar is also an accomplished entrepreneur, who runs her prestigious SAHAR BMD Brand.

Her website explains,

“At Sahar BMD, we love using our brand to tell meaningful stories that help Middle Eastern traditions alive. Many of our designs have been inspired by the natural beauties of the Middle East from the Nile river to the Red Sea. All our collections are shipped from Canada.”

Her website explains more about her story:

“Sahar, a successful businesswoman, was born in the Middle East and remembers as a child, being surrounded by the lush and colourful environment of Middle Eastern culture and fashion. She professes to have always been an individual when it comes to fashion. From an early age she refused to follow fashion trends. Sahar describes herself as an “old soul” and admits she is more apt to choose vintage clothing or antique designs which she then alters for an even more original look. Her love of adornment and distinctive fashion has never left her, and when the opportunity came to create her own jewelry, Sahar leaped at the chance, and derived her inspiration from the colours of her past.”

Sahar doesn’t do this just for herself; she has a passion for empowering other creators to do the same.

“In the future, I want to help other people, especially women who suffer from different [issues] in their life, through my website. I want to sell their hand-made products and help them to have self-confidence and establish a business from zero, because I started from zero.”
