The distinction between a good Realtor and a great one is trust and connection, tenets that have shaped Rabiah H. Akar of William Raveis Real Estate into a rare jewel. After a successful career driving sales for high-end jewelry brands like David Yurman, the New England native and Newton resident made the decision years ago to pivot to real estate.
“I have always loved helping people in general,” says Akar, who identifies as a true empath. “Just like jewelry, a home is so personal, she says. I connect with clients on a deep level by listening to their needs so that I can be the best house matchmaker. I have found that vulnerability truly bridges a strong connection.” Her jewelry background has also instilled in her a keen eye for detail, which facilitates home decoration, staging and even feng shui.
Serving first-time and luxury homebuyers and sellers, Akar is licensed in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and covers the Greater Boston Area, including Middlesex, Norfolk, Suffolk and Plymouth counties. Her unique combination of driven business acumen and warm personality help her stand out.
The core of her approach is sincerity and integrity. “I have lost money doing the right thing, but I’ve gained peoples’ loyalty,” says Akar. This avid yogi integrates her love of service into how she serves her brokerage, as well, acting as a Raveis Technology Specialist, for which she won certificates of excellence in 2019 and 2020.
Whether she’s supporting clients, serving her community or assisting other agents, Akar treats others like family. This genuine spirit leaves a lasting impression. “Our conversations go beyond real estate to what really matters in life,” says Akar. “These relationships are what truly make real estate so meaningful.”
