Ed Balazadeh


A skillful visionary, Ed Balazadeh earned his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Guilan University, a sister university to the renowned University of Berlin. He then went on to achieve his Master of Architecture degree from IAU, the largest university in the Middle East. As a young Architect, Ed established his first successful design-build firm in 2004, at the young age of 23 and his unique approach to home design was born. 

Building upon this foundation, Elijah Kord Custom Homes has grown, and Ed assumes comprehensive oversight for all aspects of the design development and construction phases of the project. Ed takes great pleasure in engaging with every stage of the process, demonstrating meticulous planning and attention to detail throughout, ensuring a seamless execution until the final handover of keys to the client.

Ed loves spending time out of the office with his wife and business partner, Mahsa and their extended family. Nostalgic for his youth, he often enjoys a game of basketball or soccer with his sons, reminding him of the tournaments he played as a boy.

Mahsa Balazadeh


With a passion for design and an eye for detail, Mahsa Balazadeh creates unique, inspired interior designs for each client. Mahsa earned her Bachelor of Business degree in Marketing and Design from CSU in California and has been working in both interior design and fine art ever since.

As the head of the Elijah Kord Custom Homes Interior Design team, Mahsa’s keen eye for textures, colors, and materials is apparent. Her expertise in collaboration with the Elijah Kord team results in exquisite home designs that are in sync with her client’s tastes. Each home has an individual distinct look and feel amplifying the architecture of the home and complementing each client’s vision.

When she is not designing luxury interiors, Mahsa creates abstract fine art, and is currently working on pieces for an upcoming gallery show.
