“We’re delighted that Mamood and Uma are joining us at Berkeley Hills Realty,” says firm co-owner Bill McDowell. "I've known them for a long time, and I have great respect for their smarts, energy, and commitment to their clients."
Mamood was born and raised in Teheran. He came to the United States in 1975, three years before the revolution, and attended the University of Louisville and San Francisco State, studying small business management. Prior to real estate, Mamood managed a number of local restaurants, including eight years at what is now Saul's.
Mamood got his real estate license in 1988, and comes to Berkeley Hills Realty after a decade of selling properties at several prominent local firms. His primary focus is single-family homes, though he has also worked on apartment complexes, and commercial sales and rentals. He has extensive property management experience, and is very familiar with the Berkeley and Oakland rent control ordinances.
Over the years, Mamood has sunk deep roots in the community. "I'm a very Berkeley person," he says, "I like the intellectual atmosphere and I like exchanging ideas and opinions with people. When you're in Berkeley, you can be who you are."
Among his other talents, Mamood enjoys bicycling. He once did the AIDS ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles and raised close to $10,000, he says proudly. He has also volunteered for BOSS (Berkeley Oakland Support Services) and at the Berkeley Emergency Homeless Shelter. Finally, he confesses to being something of a homebody: "I love to read and cook, and taking care of my three kids."
