Roushan Kwatra

Roushan was born and raised in India. After completing his Bachelor’s in Architecture, he obtained his architectural license and worked on designing several small and large-scale projects in the residential and commercial sectors in North India.

Roushan’s interest in real estate development was piqued during his time working as an interior architect for a commercial property management firm. Exercising more control over the design and operational aspects of a project and gaining knowledge of the building life cycle and the finances involved, incentivized him to pursue a master’s degree in real estate and obtain the skills required to succeed in the industry.

Living and working in a resource-scarce environment in India, drove his keen interests in sustainability and adaptive re-use, primarily minimizing energy usage and giving under-utilized, dormant spaces new life. Roushan recently obtained his WELL AP certification and is intent on adding LEED credentials to his resume to pursue a career in sustainable real estate development.

Roushan currently serves as the Speaker Chair of the University of Washington’s Real Estate Club and organizes fireside chats bringing together real estate industry leaders from the Pacific Northwest.

Outside of school, Roushan enjoys playing soccer, discovering obscure cafes, and planning student events as the Community Director of Nordheim Court Student Housing.
