Regional Vice President of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties Scott MacDonald welcomes Mariana Donahue. “Mariana is an educated professional with great networking skills and an eye for design,” says MacDonald. “This will allow her to deliver optimal results for her sellers and find excellent deals for her buyers.”
Donahue gained an interest in real estate from her experiences conducting personal transactions. Having purchased and sold both primary residences and investment properties, where she supervised each phase of the design and remodeling process, she developed a talent for visualizing the potential of a space and a capacity for maximizing a home’s aesthetic appeal.
Donahue also credits her mother, who was in real estate, for inspiring her to focus on residential purchases and sales. “I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to learn about the industry from a young age,” says Donahue. “This has given me a belief in the importance of listening carefully to people, which is essential to helping them identify their needs and goals for the future.”

Regional Vice President of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties Scott MacDonald is pleased to welcome luxury real estate expert Fa Karamzadeh to the Corona del Mar office. “Fa has built an excellent reputation and a loyal client base as a result of his no-nonsense approach to real estate,” said MacDonald. “With his focus on ethical business practices and superior market knowledge, he is a valuable asset to our office and our company.”
Karamzadeh is a 16-year veteran of the real estate industry with a proven track record of success in helping his clients. Known for his commitment to provide his buyers and sellers with the resources and guidance they need to make informed decisions, he has participated in more than $425 million of real estate sales.
Far more important to Karamzadeh than passing sales milestones, however, are the relationships that he has formed with his clients. “Relationships are paramount to what I do, so I have always worked to earn my clients’ trust and repeat business. To accomplish that goal I provide my clients with open, honest communications and carefully manage all of the details, to ensure that I can deliver a positive result for their transactions,” explains Karamzadeh.
