How medical work, and a medical crisis, changed Alladawi’s life
Alladawi’s path began in medical school, where he worked with the Red Cross and delved into medical tourism. This diverse background, coupled with a life-changing experience as a severe COVID survivor, has profoundly impacted his perspective, both personally and professionally.

A varied career in real estate
With over 15 years in real estate, Alladawi has worn many hats: From flipping over 300 homes a year to working as a broker and then transitioning into lending and building. His strategic approach to investing, guided by the principle of using income to finance real estate investments rather than relying on them for living expenses, mirrors the advice he received from his father, a successful investor himself.

Recognizing the struggles of agents in a market saturated with competition and limited inventory, Alladawi encourages embracing technology and forming strategic partnerships. His message to real estate professionals is to transcend the role of a mere agent and become a value-creation partner for clients, a philosophy deeply embedded in Revive’s operations.
Alladawi’s vision for the real estate sector is heavily influenced by proptech. He envisions an industry where technology not only streamlines processes but also empowers agents to provide enhanced value to their clients. His focus is on nurturing partnerships and leveraging AI and other innovative solutions to elevate the role of real estate professionals.
Finding balance between the personal and professional
For Alladawi, balancing his intense professional life with family time is about intentional time-boxing and being fully present in each aspect of his life. This approach has helped him maintain a harmonious balance between his passion for revolutionizing real estate and his commitment to his family.
