Leila Evloeva has rapidly become a notable name in the real estate and architectural design  industry, known for her impressive portfolio and influential presence. She specializes with international investors, her expertise spans continents, with significant projects in New York, Dubai, Saudi Arabia and beyond. But her journey was paved with determination, her father’s support, and an unwavering passion for architecture and real estate.

Early Influences 

Leila’s story begins in her family home, where the foundations of her career were laid. Growing up, she was deeply influenced by her father, who was a professional general contractor and engineer. “My father instilled in me a love for buildings and design from a young age,” she recalls. “He taught me to see the beauty in structures and the importance of creating spaces that people love to live in.”

Her father, a contractor engineer, often took her to his construction sites, explaining the nuances of design and structure. These experiences sparked her curiosity and passion for the field. “Watching my father work was mesmerizing. It was like seeing an artist at work, transforming empty spaces into something meaningful,” Leila shares. “I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a part of the field someday.”

Beginning Her Journey in Real Estate

Leila’s formal journey into real estate began when she moved to New York at an early age. She pursued a degree in architectural design, and business management, which gave her the technical skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the industry. However, it was her internships and part-time jobs that provided practical experience and networking opportunities.

One of her first roles was with a prominent real estate firm in New York, where she worked on various projects and honed her skills. “That job was my entry point into the industry. I learned the importance of attention to detail and the value of client relationships,” Leila notes. 

Her ability to connect with clients and her charismatic personality quickly made her a favorite among colleagues and clients alike. “Networking and building relationships are crucial in this industry. It’s not just about what you know but who you know and how you can work together to achieve great things,” she emphasizes.

Making Strides in the Industry

Leila’s big break came when she was offered a project in Dubai, one of the competitive real estate markets in the world. Her innovative designs and strategic approach to real estate caught the eye of many, leading to more high-profile projects and collaborations.

“Saudi Arabia was a turning point in my career. The scale and ambition of the projects there challenged me to think bigger and push my limits,” Leila explains. Her work in Saudi Arabia not only established her as a leading figure in international real estate but also opened doors to opportunities in other global markets.

Hopes for the Future

Looking ahead, Leila is excited about the future of real estate and architecture. She hopes to continue pushing the boundaries of design and sustainability in her projects. “Sustainability is no longer an option; it’s a necessity. I want to create spaces that are not only beautiful but also environmentally responsible,” she says.

Leila also has a vision of mentoring the next generation of real estate professionals. “I’ve been fortunate to have great mentors throughout my career, and I want to give back by guiding young talents in the industry. There’s so much potential out there, and I want to help unlock it,” she adds.

In Summary

Leila Evloeva’s journey from a young girl inspired by her parents to a global real estate leader is a testament to her hard work, passion, and dedication. Her story is a reminder that with the right influences, education, and opportunities—paired with determination and a strong work ethic—one can achieve remarkable success. Leila recently was an Annual Award Winner in Architecture and Development “Rising Star in Architecture and Development” 2024 in Miami.

“Success is about more than just building structures; it’s about creating a legacy,” Leila concludes. And with her impressive track record and visionary outlook, Leila Evloeva is well on her way to doing just that.
