A former refugee of Central New York, Esmir grew up in Syracuse and graduated cum laude from Syracuse University. After graduation Esmir jumped right into entrepreneurship and moved to the Greater New York City area to join a design and manufacturing start-up. In order to pursue his passion and vision for innovating the buying and selling experience of real estate, Esmir moved back to Syracuse and founded Loft & Manor in 2016.
Esmir is deeply passionate about people and community. In 2016 he co-founded Bey Foundation, a non-for- profit empowering middle and high school students through scholarship and mentorship. Growing up in a refugee community, he now gives back by serving on the board of the North Side Learning Center and volunteering to empower newer members of the community.
An avid reader, Esmir also enjoys spending time outdoors, playing golf and soccer, and travelling to explore new cultures.
