Sean Refahiat joined Blake & Ayaz in January of 2015 and is an attorney licensed to practice law in California. Raised by a single mother in Huntington Beach, California, Sean attributes his dedication to hard work, drive for success and compassion for his clients to the example set by his mother who worked multiple jobs to pay the bills while she studied at night. She ultimately earned her broker’s license and became a top commercial real estate broker in Southern California.

As a natural progression, Sean pursued and obtained a degree in finance from California State University, Fullerton. Post-graduation Sean helped to locate, develop, finance, and operate a Mobil Gas Station and Carwash in Orange County.
