    I’m actually pretty disappointed in this website. Only one Black woman, as a website for Black women, you would think this website would represent more Black women in this listing. As a Black woman looking in to getting into real estate, I can see the large amounts of sexism and racism in the industry. Maybe that’s why Black women aren’t in it very much.

    tate george oews me $500 for transportation services rendered. And has been ignoring the many payment requests for almost a whole year. Don't know why he is featured in this article if he can not afford to pay a driver $500.

  • Great post! I work with several very successful real estate agents in Atlanta. One started his business at the beginning of the recession. Real Estate is on the rise again, lets all take these stories as inspiration to claiming our position in this great opportunity.
