Vishal was born and raised in the Maryland/DC area. He completed high school in 3 years during which time he began investing in the stock market, and went on to earn a BS degree from the Univeristy of Maryland Baltimore County in Computer Science in 2005. 4 Months after graduating he began investing in Real Estate, and would go on to quit his full time job as a Software Engineer and Datbase Administrator and found “Vishal and Associates”.

Five years later, Vishal & Associates has been growing year over year and gaining market share while other Realtors have been getting out of the business by the hundreds of thousands. Vishal and Associates have consistently been in the Top 5% of agents in their office, in the top 30% of agents in the country as measured by Wells Fargo, and been featured on HGTV.
