When you talk about the real estate industry in Texas, you will hear about Jerome Karam Friendswood. As a trendsetter with many real estate projects to his name, Jerome Karam’s success story is nothing short of extraordinary, considering his starting business was litigation after completing his law studies. While he transitions his law firm as one of the best names in legal services and law fraternity, he also followed the real estate business as he always felt cut out for the real estate industry. He spends years handling his law office and progressing as one of the most prominent law services. However, after ten years in his legal firm, he finally moved on to pursue his passion for real estate. While the move surprised many as risking an active law business to go for a new venture was something unusual, Jerome had his eyes set for real estate.
Almost two decades later, there is not much you can say that could accurately describe the success Jerome Karam is having in the real estate business. Name Dr. Impossible by the Galveston County Mayor Jim Yarborough, Jerome has been a phenomenal success.
