BARTLETT, TN., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS welcomes Affiliate Broker Shabnam Minhas to the company’s Barlett, Tennessee branch office located at 2868 Summer Oaks Drive in Barlett.


“I became interested in real estate after my husband and brother-in-law got into the business as investors about a year and a half ago,” said Shabnam.  “I used to go out with them looking at homes and our agent Nancy Moore of Crye-Leike and it did not take me long to realize that this was the job I wanted.  I really liked the way Nancy worked with my husband and she told us all about the business and everything I needed to know.”


Shabnam is a licensed Affiliate Broker in Tennessee assisting buyers and sellers in and around Shelby, Fayette and Tipton counties.  She specializes in all types of residential real estate sales.  Shabnam is a member of the Memphis Area Association of Realtors (MAAR), Tennessee Association of Realtors (TAR) and National Association of Realtors (NAR).


“I enrolled in real estate school, passed the test and now I’m here working for Crye-Leike,” said Shabnam.  “I want to be like all the other hard working people in the industry and I’m trying to learn whatever I can from people who have been in the business for a long time.  I feel blessed to be part of this profession and a firm where the people are friendly and helpful.”


Shabnam came to the United States in January 2002 with her husband who was a student at the University of Tennessee.  On a dependant VISA she could not work for a number of years and while eager to pursue studies in English Literature, she was unable to receive admission to the University of Memphis.


“I did manage to get my private pilot’s license through a flight school in Olive Branch, Mississippi and after the birth of my son I started my own vending business,” said Shabnam.  “While that kept me busy I wanted a career where I could meet new people everyday and real estate sales just seemed like such a logical place for me.”

Shabnam and her husband Dr. Ankur Seth live in Memphis and their son Neil who turns three in November.  In her free time Shabnam enjoys spending time with her family, flying planes, going out with friends and family, cooking and meeting new people wherever she goes.
