CEO | FOUNDER
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.
Since then, Elijah Kord Custom Homes has grown, and Ed is the Principal Designer and even manages some of his projects during the execution phase. He relishes every step of the process, thoughtfully and meticulously planning all details up until the moment the keys are handed to a 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.
