Riaz Taplin
Principal & Founder

In his early career, Riaz focused his attention on the ultra-luxury San Francisco real estate market. In 2013, one of his Pacific Heights projects set a record for highest residential property sales in San Francisco. While designing and developing over 50 high end residences in the Bay Area, Riaz also recognized an opportunity to purchase and reposition undervalued properties in Oakland. Utilizing his keen eye for design and unmatched understanding of both ends of the real estate market, Riaz set forth to transform these dilapidated buildings into a place that anybody would love to call home at an affordable price. Riaz built a network of investors and vendors to expand his footprint over the East Bay, adding value through increasing the density of units, performing seismic and common area upgrades, and completing major cosmetic renovations. Over time he grew the company into Riaz Inc. managing over $100m in assets, including over 800 apartments in the East Bay. Riaz is a board member of the San Francisco chapter of the Posse Foundation and co-chair of the American India Foundation SF Gala.

Riaz earned a B.A. in Economic History from the London School of Economics.
