JR Real Estate Group was founded by Mohamed Swilam and Saif Rahman. In 2016, both partners brought their wealth of local experience together to form JR Group. They also have extensive international land development experience. Mohamed is a land developer with over 20 years of experience developing mixed-use projects in Alexandria, Egypt, including major multifamily developments. Saif has 20+ years of experience in emerging markets, land acquisition, community planning, and public relations. The two men came together and formed JR Real Estate Group to accelerate development throughout the Northern Virginia region.
Most recently, JR Real Estate Group secured rezoning approval for a mixed-use development encompassing 157 townhomes and neighborhood commercial space on Lomond Drive, Manassas, Prince William County. Lomond Village will be developed by NV Homes. JR Group also successfully assembled and entitled Oakton View Subdivision, a 25-Single Family Homes subdivision recently completed by Evergreen Homes in Oakton, Fairfax County. Since its establishment, JR Real Estate has developed and sold over 400 lots. Plus, our land development firm grows by 20% every year, establishing target lot production of 1000 lots yearly in the region.
