Malik, originally from New York City, moved to Arlington, VA in 2009. After completing high school, Malik received an offer to play collegiate football for Alfred State University but chose to stay and complete his Associates degree at Northern Virginia Community College in business administration with a minor in finance, while also obtaining his personal training certification.

After college, Malik discovered a strong interest in real estate and decided to further his education and real estate experience. He has previously worked for 3 of the top 20 teams in the region while obtaining his real estate license in Virginia.

Working with both clients and investors for years has taught Malik how to view the real estate market to help buyers minimize risk, both in the short term and long term. In pursuit of furthering his education, Malik is currently studying for his Maryland and DC licenses as well as real estate investment, finance, and data analysis certification from CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member).
