ABOUT US

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.  Having grown up in Los Angeles, Joseph and Kamyar share a love for their hometown that is reflected in their business strategies.

Since 2007, our mission has been to empower our investors to achieve their financial goals by setting ambitious milestones guided by a core mission of shared values and principles.
