- WIFE | FOODIE | REAL ESTATE CONSULTANT | MARKETING EXPERT | PHILANTHROPIST
Avisha got her start in business while attending Georgia Mason University. Eager to learn about more than numbers and spreadsheets, she studied abroad in 9 countries, including Italy, Spain, Greece, and Russia. There, Avisha discovered a vast and beautiful world where each culture has a story to tell—especially in the way they construct and design their homes. Looking for a creative way to build a business around those stories, Avisha teamed up with her sister Anne to launch the Sorelle brand on the Home Shopping Network (HSN).
10 years and $100 million in sales later, Anne and Avisha decided to migrate their family brand from pixels to place—officially opening up Sorelle Realty in 2014. This real estate firm offered the promise of concierge VIP service to clients in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC. Anne and Avisha delivered on that promise in style as Sorelle Realty quickly became successful enough to generate a second branch in Miami Beach. With the opening of the new office in 2017, Avisha and her husband moved into their dream home in the Venetian Islands so that she could focus on serving South Florida.
Avisha’s impressive background as a television personality and marketer has served her well as an agent. When it comes to marketing a home, no one does more than she does. For each and every listing, she crafts a compelling story. Combining gripping visual elements, persuasive copy, and stunning photography, she makes her clients’ homes utterly irresistible to potential buyers. Tapping into her global network of buyers, sellers, agents, and investors, she makes sure each listing gets all the exposure it needs to sell fast and for top dollar.
There’s more to Avisha than business. Helping others is what truly brings her fulfillment. In 2010, she and her husband started the Kassir Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to providing food, shelter, and clothing for the homeless, as well as education to help them improve their quality of life. Her work as an agent drives that foundation’s success.
