Founder | Shamah Properties LLC
Founder | Shamco Management Corp.

Mr. Joseph A. Shamah was the Chairman and Founder of Shamah Properties LLC and Shamco Management. In 1980, he purchased his first property on East 29th Street in Brooklyn. It was the start of a long history of creating and implementing the methodology that we still use today in all of our investment models and management techniques. We attribute our long list of satisfied investors and excellent relationships with the banking community to the seeds he planted at the inception of the company. We aim to always emulate his ways in everything we do and how we deal with others.
