Ayson Shammami is Director of Investment Sales at Encore Real Estate Investment Services in Southfield, MI. He joined the company in 2018 as an Associate Advisor specializing in retail properties and later expanded his practice to include industrial properties.
Quick to learn and driven to excel, from the start at Encore Shammami demonstrated an aptitude for the commercial real estate industry and an understanding of the national retail landscape that far surpassed his level of experience. He swiftly proved himself within the company, outperforming industry veterans to be named a Top 10 Broker in 2020. That same year he earned a promotion to Director of Investment Sales.
In 2020, a challenging year which saw the economy upended by a global pandemic, Shammami earned the prestigious Power Broker award for Overall Transaction Volume presented by the CoStar Group, a leading commercial real estate industry market research firm.
An eager self-starter, Shammami comes from a large, close-knit entrepreneurial family. Shammami began working at age 13 after persuading an uncle to allow him to help part-time at a family-owned hotel. It was his first taste of hard work and earning his own money, and it ignited a spark of drive and ambition that continues to burn today. As his clients and colleagues in the industry will attest, Shammami brings that same eagerness, drive and persistence to his work in the commercial real estate industry.
Specializing in the sale and acquisition of single and multi-tenant investment properties nationally, as well as 1031 exchange transactions, Shammami serves clients across the spectrum. He is equally adept at working with large institutional investors transacting multi-million-dollar sales, as with private individuals with a single small property. The scope of properties he has listed or helped clients acquire ranges from national retailers such as Walgreens, Walmart and CVS, to small, independently owned mom-and-pop operations like those operated by his extended family and in which he once worked. In either case, Shammami is known to work relentlessly and tenaciously to make the deal happen and, more importantly, to achieve his client’s investment goals.
Shammami is an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers, regularly taking part in ICSC’s annual conferences in New York and Las Vegas. He attended Oakland Community College and is a resident of West Bloomfield, MI.
