Amanée Mousavi, FRI
FOUNDER | REALTOR®
When it comes to the Nova Scotia real estate industry, there are few who are truly as industrious and seasoned as Amanée Mousavi; and for Amanée, real estate was not simply a career choice – it was a calling that runs in her bloodline.
As a young girl, Amanée’s love for real estate was ignited as she witnessed the blossoming of her family business, Cresco – an award-winning new home construction enterprise renowned for its innovative building practices and intelligent design.
After obtaining her undergraduate degree from Dalhousie University, Amanée gained extensive experience outside of her family business. It wasn’t before long, however, that she found herself drawn back to real estate, obtaining her license in 2010 and her FRI designation from REIC in 2016, which is awarded to less than 3% of realtors in Nova Scotia who have met the rigorous criteria.
Over the past 12 years, Amanée has transformed beyond the path to family succession, to becoming a real estate powerhouse in her own right. While Amanée is an expert in new construction, she also holds extensive knowledge across many other facets of the industry, including resale homes, investment properties, and property management.
In 2022, Amanée is proud to enter the next chapter of her career with the launch of Nouveau Realty, a genuine one-stop source for every real estate need. This new venture will allow her to expand upon her passion for the industry while providing unparalleled customer care throughout their entire purchasing, listing process and post-sale experience.
Beyond her industry prowess – and ability to offer services in English and Farsi – Amanée is an avid community volunteer through several organizations. She is President of the Real Estate Institute of Canada’s Nova Scotia Chapter, Past President of Family Business Atlantic, and has served on the board of Fusion Halifax’s Urban Development Diason and the NS Iranian Cultural Society.

“I was recommended Yong Li through my family and friends. I couldn’t be more grateful that he became my realtor! This was my first time buying a house and he made the experience fun and helped a lot. Yong was very knowledgeable about the market trends. He referred many houses based on my demand. He knew exactly what to do at every step of the process. I had a lot of questions and he was very patient and always answered very quick! Even after I moved in the house, I still see and hear from Yong, checking in how I am doing and providing suggestions especially how to fight the snow in winter!“
“Tamuno Cookey was the perfect real estate agent. Every time I needed to contact him he was available and eager to please. He understood what I was looking for and went to work right away. He found me a house in a perfect location with the right price range in 5 days. He really knew how to answer to my needs and was a pleasure to work with. I would hire him again without question.“
