We Are Optimus
Optimus Properties, LLC was started by two brothers, K. Joseph Shabani and Kamyar Shabani, in 2007. But the roots of the Company were laid many years earlier by the brothers’ father, Houshang Shabani, who brought his family to the United States in 1978, as political and religious refugees. Houshang got his new start in the United States by selling garments and eventually transitioned into real estate investments. Joseph got his start working under his father at the family business. Kamyar joined forces with Joseph after practicing law for several years and the two of them formed Optimus. Having grown up in Los Angeles, Joseph and Kamyar share a love for their hometown that is reflected in their business strategies. The brothers appreciate the diverse neighborhoods and people that make up the mosaic of their city and take great pride in the team they have built at Optimus. Currently, Optimus is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and is engaged in the acquisition, development, leasing and management of multi-family, retail and commercial real estate. The Company employs a disciplined investment approach focused on value creation and capital preservation. The Company’s investments are characterized by direct principal involvement and a meaningful contribution of its principals’ capital. The Company’s current portfolio consists of retail, office, medical office and multi-family properties in California, Washington and New Mexico.
