Omar Boraie is a renowned businessman whose focus is on real estate development in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He is the Founder and Vice President of Boraie Development, a real estate development company that was responsible for the transformation of New Brunswick into the urban jungle it is now. Apart from real estate development, Boraie Development also offers property management, and sales and marketing services, to all aspects of the urban real estate sector.
When Omar came to the U.S. from Egypt 40 years ago, he had a vision of transforming the then dying New Brunswick neighborhood to a real estate orchard with state of the art buildings. Back then, the streets of New Brunswick were deserted by 4 p.m. Omar envisioned the New York style of construction in the area. He began by constructing large story apartment blocks for communities to live in. He also purchased old run-down buildings and converted them into state of the art office spaces. Omar witnessed the same occurrence in Europe, while he was a traveling Chemistry scholar from Egypt. Check out Crunchbase for more details.
