Shanzay Malik

Upper-Year Advisor

Shanzay is one of TRREA’s Senior Advisors for the 23/24 school year. She is currently in her last year at the Ted Rogers School of Management, completing her Bachelor of Commerce degree with a major in Real Estate Management. This is Shanzay’s third year in TRREA; she first joined the official course union back in 21/22 as an Events Associate and then ran the 22/23 events team as Vice President!

This past summer, Shanzay had the opportunity to complete a full-time internship at The Behar Group Realty Inc. where she received first-hand exposure to what day-to-day life looks like within a commercial real estate brokerage. Shanzay is currently continuing her relationship with the company and is working in a part-time capacity on their marketing front. She is also in the process of obtaining her real estate license through RECO’s Salesperson Program via Humber College.

Her passion for real estate first began when she aided her father in renting out rooms and delegating with tenants at his investment property in Hamilton, Ontario. The property was located minutes away from McMaster University, making it a prime location for student housing. The success of her father’s business endeavours is what pushed Shanzay to join the Real Estate Management major with hopes of expanding her knowledge of real estate beyond just residential renting, buying, and selling. Involvement with the Ted Rogers Real Estate Association in addition to joining The Behar Group Realty Inc. has given Shanzay the opportunity to do just that.

Her next goals are to further immerse herself in the world of CRE to determine which asset classes resonate the most with her, while also building strong business relationships within the industry.
