Founded in 1947, as part of the The Furniture House Agency, a furniture rental store started by Mahmood Yunus, SilverLine was then only the part of a bigger picture. Its inception was at a time when realty and construction was not a growing segment that would witness a sudden boom.
For years it remained so until there came a day when his son, Farook Mahmood, introduced SilverLine Estates along with his brother Zahed Mahmood in the year 1990.
It was hence decided that SilverLine Estates would take over the real estate part of business formerly managed by the Furniture House Agency. The Mahmood’s with their keen observance for development and experience, brought the company to the pinnacles of success that it enjoys today.
Handling the marketing of real estate projects, SilverLine today offers a bouquet of services with a corporate framework which has set niche standards for financial performance, moral ethics, health, safety and rehabilitation, and community and environmental matters.
A graduate in Real Estate Management, Farook Mahmood has always been a visionary with a keen insight into the future.
Starting off with the real estate division in the Furniture House Agency, Mr Farook's understanding of the market as well as his innovative solutions to the industry’s problems makes SilverLine into what it is today.
At a time when the real estate business was uncommon and did not hold much potential, the company was created and gradually transformed into a global player in consultancy, property management and services.
With a Diploma in Real Estate principles and practice from University of Fullerton, Los Angeles, California, USA, Mr Farook went on to bring all the real estate agents of the city of Bangalore under one roof and set up the Bangalore Realtors Association of India in 2000.
He is also responsible for the National Association of Realtors in 2007, a national body comprising agents’ associations. This was followed by the affiliation with the US-based National Association of Realtors to turn National Association of Realtors to National Association of Realtors – India, a global organization set to bridge the divide between nations in the property space.
Currently this multi-faceted Director prefers to indulge in supporting various charitable trusts and arduously works towards bringing about more transparency and professionalism to the real estate business through education programmes for members of the global body
