David Carr teams up with Realty Concepts

Tyler Frost, Reporter

Former first overall NFL draft pick and Bakersfield native David Carr takes on a new business venture as he partners with Realty Concepts and their brokerage. The partnership brings together two parties that are family-oriented and committed to the best interests of the Central Valley.

Realty Concepts is recognized as the Valley’s leading real estate brokerage. They are locally owned and operated, as they identify themselves as, “The Family Company”. Realty Concepts was founded in 1991 by John Shamshoian. His son J.P. Shamshoian now runs Realty Concepts with the same client-focused mentality that the company was founded with. 

J.P Shamshoian shares of the partnership with Carr, “Our beliefs are fundamentals as a family business are reflected upon in David.” He also adds, “We know that with the Carr family roots in the Valley, we can uplift our community through future efforts.”

Carr was a legendary Quarterback for Fresno State and went on to play 11 seasons in the NFL. He was selected by the Houston Texans as the first draft choice in their franchise’s history and played 5 rough seasons with a lackluster supporting cast. Carr then made appearances for the Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers, and served as the backup for the New York Giants for several seasons, including their 2011 team that won the Super Bowl.

Carr had to say of the agreement, “I am delighted to partner with J.P. Shamshoian and the entire team at Realty Concepts.” The company shares many of the same principles as the Carr family, and it seems to be the perfect match. Carr then added, “They have a strong orientation towards family and the community, and it runs throughout their whole organization. Their commitment to Fresno and the Central Valley is wonderful! Carr’s decision to join Realty Concepts had much to do with their commitment to the two places he considers home. 

Many windows of opportunity have arisen with the partnership, combining two of the Central Valley’s most prominent and caring brands in a field where the people come first. The future of real estate in the Valley is bright, with Realty Concepts looking to expand outside of their current offices in Fresno, Clovis, and Oakhurst. The David Carr partnership with Realty Concepts looks to bring growth to a brand already committed to service and works hard to bring the Valley people-oriented real estate.
