We’ve been interviewing folks from the real estate industry who are doing innovative things, from bringing more diversity to the industry to creating innovative technologies that affect construction and design.
Module’s CEO Brian Gaudio recently sat down with Aziz Housseini, founder of Sage Asset Partners, a technology and advisory company working to bring the real estate industry into the 21st century.
Aziz began his career in real estate when he purchased a property in Baltimore City during his sophomore year at UMBC, while he went to school full time and worked as a software engineer. Although he had to learn some hard lessons from that experience (like do your due diligence before you buy a property - minor repairs can turn into a money pit), he really enjoyed the process of buying real estate.
He spent some of his career working at the Baltimore City CDC, doing some construction management, and some consulting until the pandemic hit in 2020. It was then that he decided to start Sage using all of his construction and software engineering experience.
Sage works with mission-driven organizations, nonprofits of all sizes, government agencies, and private developers to help them manage important elements of real estate like timing, expectations, documents, and human capital constraints, ultimately making the real estate process more efficient. By offering both advisory and technology services, Sage is making the real estate process easier and more accessible, allowing those who work with Sage to be successful.
