Tarek Morshed 


The Morshed Group began with Tarek and his entrepreneurial journey. When he was still a student at the University of Texas, he bought his first investment property. Before he graduated, Tarek had invested in a handful of single-family homes and a small apartment complex. These experiences taught him a great deal about Austin’s dynamic economy and the challenges of buying and selling real estate.

With an Accounting degree in hand and in passionate entrepreneurial fashion, he set out become a pur­pose-driven client-focused realtor. Tarek’s aim was to become a trusted cabinet member in each client’s life for real estate…..and well beyond.

Today he leads The Morshed Group, building a team of successful advisors fully bought into The Morshed Group’s “why”.

He has also been passionate about building a commercial real estate platform with Groundfloor Development focused on projects in emerging markets in Dallas, Austin and Houston. His biggest passion however is his daughter followed closely by his family and constantly giving back by mentoring anyone who reaches out to him.

Daniel Montanez   

Agent / Business Development

Daniel started his career as a serial entrepreneur during his undergrad years at New York University by launching Color Management Group with classmates in the color science engineering dept. The formed a training agency to help analog printing companies transition and succeed in the new digital printing age. This first company grew to international status with offices in New York, San Diego, Brussels, and Milano and over 120 employees within 4 years.  A sale occurred followed by a career of finding niches for which to build and scale other companies within the printing industry.

Daniel has founded, scaled and sold 5 companies including his most recent venture in 2018, Statement Walls as well as achieved an MBA and a Master of Science in Marketing from NYU. He attributes his success to his constant questioning of the status quo. He believes that every industry has gaps where they could better serve their customers and make for longer more fruitful relationships.  Daniel has also been a buyer and investor of multiple properties (commercial and residential) throughout the Northeast.

Now living in Texas, he chose to enter the real estate industry via the The Morshed Group with plans to disrupt the status quo once again. He is an integral part of our biz dev side with a primary focus in client representation as an agent. Daniel has never considered himself a salesperson versus a partner when working with customers. That ideology combined with his vast entrepreneurial experiences and spirit make Daniel a powerful addition toThe Morshed Group.

“Tarek is the consummate professional and an absolute joy to work with!!!”
“Tarek is a very passionate and knowledgeable professional. He really cares about people's relationships.”
“Tarek has been more than I could have asked for in a Realtor. He probably talked me out of more places than into! He attention to detail is ability to communicate makes the whole buying process a lot more manageable. I recommend Tarek to everyone I know!”
“Tarek was wonderful and really went to bat for us to find a home. He was readily available and communicated effectively. We will definitely continue to use him in further real-estate transaction.”
“Daniel and The Morshed Group have been great in helping me find my first home. Throughout the whole process, Daniel has been incredibly flexible with my many requests and changing opinions on what I am looking for. He was very available and also has always patiently steered me in the right direction. More importantly for me though is the fact that he went above and beyond when on my closing day I got into a pretty serious car accident on my way to the walkthrough. He was not only my realtor but a friend through the whole thing, giving me a ride home and even offering to take pictures of the accident scene for me. Great experience throughout!”
“Tarek and team did a terrific job helping guide us through the process of buying a new home and selling our old one in Austin. Tarek knows the market well, and really helped us to clarify our needs, and make a great choice. I recommend him without reservation.”
“Simply Tarek and his team provide the best, most comprehensive home buying experience I could think imaginable. Data, tech focused approach with experience equated to both ease of transaction and at the price I wanted. Would recommend Tarek and the Morshed for any buyer or seller of Austin property who values professionalism, creativity, hard work and RESULTS!”
