At the age of 12, Frida's family emigrated to the United States from Lebanon. She spent the better part of her teenage years absorbing the English language and adjusting to life in Southern California. She attended California State University and earned her degree in Mechanical Engineering. After 5 years of working as a contractor for the US Navy, Frida expanded her knowledge and interest to the Biomedical community. As a Senior Research and Development Biomedical Engineer, she oversaw a project and worked closely with cardiovascular surgeons and technicians. Frida met her husband, Rob, in California, and married in Yosemite National Park. After moving to Alexandria, Frida transitioned to real estate after her youngest began preschool. Frida's listening abilities, organizational skills, attention to detail and problem solving are tremendous assets to her clients.
Frida is passionate about building lasting relationships with her clients. She truly cherishes her role as a trusted advisor. Navigating each step of the process, Frida helps her clients -- from renovating and staging to pricing and marketing. Frida guides her clients with expertise, passion and best-in-class service. As a Senior Real Estate Specialist, she is recognized as on of Washington's Top Producing Agents by Washingtonian Magazine. She is also a recipient of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty Outstanding Sales Achievement Award.
Recognizing that buying or selling a home is both exciting and emotional, Frida delivers a comfortable and personalized experience for every client she serves. She understands that each person, and situation, is unique. As a consequence, Frida tailors her services to meet the needs of each client. The relationship does not end once the transaction is complete -- she continues to facilitate her clients' transition into their new community and maintains friendships long after the initial transaction. The best-in-class concierge service she provides her clients includes a vast network of trusted vendors Frida has cultivated throughout the years.
Frida and Rob have 4 daughters who are active in service organizations, sports and the arts. When Frida is not working in real estate, she enjoys biking the Mount Vernon Trail, running, competing in triathlons, spending time with friends and supporting her daughters. In addition, Frida is on the board of her daughters' high school PTSA. Her role as treasurer ensures that funds are available and on budget for the different committees. Frida is the lead for Phoenix Rising -- a volunteer organization meeting once a month to assemble and deliver meals.
