Carly Zamani

Senior Associate


Carly Zamani, “zcarly,” has an extensive background in hospitality management, restaurant branding and development. With over 21 years of experience, she has worked for some of the best restaurateurs of our time. She solely developed, managed and operated a region of five restaurants in Las Vegas and came to Orange County to successfully open Seasons 52 at South Coast Plaza. From there, she took the position as Operating Partner alongside Paul Fleming to open and develop Paul Martin’s at the Irvine Spectrum.

Carly then transitioned to the role of Executive General Manager for the iconic restaurant in Laguna Beach, Las Brisas. During her time there, she successfully grew sales in excess of 1.2 mm per month and completely renovated and redesigned the brand and its culture. Always looking to expand her business knowledge and skillset, during her management career she worked with a wealth management firm to coordinate their luxury events and branding with companies like Rolls Royce, BMW, Bentley and Tiffany and Co. She took a position for a short while with the Irvine-based luxury private jet company, Jetsuite, and is now building her own brand in real estate.

Always committed to giving back to the community, Carly has worked closely for years with Child Abuse Prevention Center. She recently sponsored a community little league team and is always searching for ways to help children in need.

Carly grew up in Carlsbad in a family of nine children who have all called her “sparkle plenty.” Formerly Carly Ward, she is now happily married to Farzad Maxx Zamani, residing in Laguna Niguel with their two sons, Landen and Preston. Carly has a true love for Formula 1, hot yoga and collecting high heels. In fact, she buys new shoes every time she closes a deal and names them after the street of the property.
