Bill Karam

Bill Karam

Real Estate Consultant & Partner

M. Karam started his entrepreneurial career in the architecture and construction industry following a Masters degree in Interior Architecture and Design. Until his departure in 2013 he was managing a structure of 120 operational and administrative employees. M. Karam obtained his MBA degree from John Molson School of Business with a concentration in real estate strategies.

M. Karam believed that underperforming real estate can be optimized using architectural and project management efficiencies to improve financial performance and property value. He therefore developed the “Residential Rental Real Estate Value Creation Model” that identifies optimal decisions considered while investing in real estate.

As a Commercial Portfolio Manager at BMO Bank of Montreal, he was able to learn the key factors that affect the outcome of any real estate investment: financial, fiscal and credit structuring. He associatively developed with M. Laursen the financial valuation model used to analyze investment and exit strategies based on choice of real estate portfolios and investors’ profiles.

M. Karam is a real estate consultant who can optimize your property’s value by providing strategic recommendations and tailor-made turnkey solutions.
