Merit Real Estate, Inc. is a full-service, concierge real estate brokerage that has been serving the South Bay communities for more than 20 years. Its clients include first-time home buyers, rental property owners and real estate investors. Merit has been in the same Redondo Beach location since it opened in 1989 and plans to stay and service the community that has supported the family-owned business for years to come. After years of watching his father, founder Amir Amiri, successfully build lasting relationships with people, Rodman joined the company in 2006. His modern outlook perfectly complements Amir’s years of experience.
Does it take a special set of skills to operate a successful business with family members?
“One skill in particular: patience.”
Why did you choose to own a business in this field?
Amir: “My educational background is in civil engineering, and prior to that I was involved in architectural design. I was always fascinated with buildings structure and design.”
Rodman: “I remember going to see construction projects with my dad and being amazed that a junk house could be turned into a dream home. I watched these homes being fixed or built and realized real value was being added to communities.”
What’s most rewarding about your work?
“Two of the most rewarding things about this work are seeing someone move into their dream home and having someone start as a client and become a lifelong friend.”
In what ways do you provide top-notch customer service?
“We help with all aspects of home buying, home selling and home ownership, including financing, investing and property management. We are not associated with any large real estate firm—we have no big corporate boss. The only people we have to answer to are our clients, and we’re not satisfied unless they are.”
How do you give back to your community?
“We plan charitable community projects each year, including Red Cross blood drives and Habitat for Humanity. We sponsor the Redondo Beach Little League and support the local fire and police stations. Not only do we work here, but all of our employees live in the South Bay as well, so it’s important to us that our community is well taken care of.”
