APRNEWS: Who is Guinean - American Kadiatou Baldé ?
APRNEWS - Nowadays, the real estate sector is heavily dominated by men in Africa, just like in Western countries.
However, there are increasingly more women making their way into real estate.
This is the case for Guinean-American Kadiatou Baldé, who now resides in the United States.
As the owner of a real estate agency called 'Kady Homes,' she offers unmatched services.
Without papers for 7 years, now the owner of two (2) houses in the Uncle Sam's country,
how did this mother of three (3) children manage to build an enterprise that is admired nowadays?
It's 2015, freshly graduated from a Malaysian school, Kadiatou Baldé arrives in the United States.
Without papers, knowledge, or connections, the young entrepreneur takes a chance in real estate.
It was a true uphill battle:
"I came to the United States without any connections, I couldn't drive, I didn't know anyone.
So, I had to go door to door, walk through markets, and give out my business cards, saying that I work in real estate. I was pregnant with my first son, but I went out,
and the same for the second and third. I was very motivated. What motivated me to become a real estate agent here, knowing that I'm a woman and would have children, is that I always wanted to control my time.
So, with real estate, I could work with my children and be there for them because even when you're pregnant, you can work in real estate.
When I came to the United States, I always wanted to be an entrepreneur.
Even when I was in Malaysia, where I studied, when I finished school, I had a job, I went
for one day, and I said I couldn't do what I did in school. So, when I arrived here in the
United States, I found a room, and I met a guy who told me I could succeed in real
estate. It's been almost 7 years since I entered the real estate market in the United
States," Kadiatou Baldé said.
According to the owner of 'Kady Homes,' her entry into real estate was not accidental. It
was based on an observation around her that she felt compelled to enter this sector:
"To be a real estate agent here in the United States, you need to have the proper
documentation. So, I came here as a visitor, and I had a paper issue.
Thank God, I went to school. I took two exams: a national exam and one from the school.
I failed both times.
But, I had a mindset; I never wanted to work for someon. What I heard in our community here was that many people didn't have homes. So, I wanted to fight for our community, to make people aware that where you are is your home. Thanks to my hard work and endurance, I've been able to help 50 families since I started. Today, many people contact me from all over the world," she rejoiced.
Today, 'Kady Homes' real estate agency is one of the most sought-after in New York and Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States, and even worldwide.
The choice to work with the agency led by Guinean-American Kadiatou Baldé was not random. She underwent training that enables her to satisfy her clients, specializing in buyer's agent,
listing agent, relocation, consulting, and property management:
"Having the right real estate agent means having an agent who is committed to helping
you buy or sell your home with the highest level of expertise in your local market. It also
means helping you understand every step of the buying or selling process. This level of
commitment has helped me build an outstanding track record of results," she noted
"Nothing is more exciting for me than the rewarding feeling I get from helping people
meet their real estate needs. You can count on me to always do what's in your best
interest. I take pride in being honest, trustworthy, and well-informed about the real
estate market. I know how important it is to find your dream home or get the best offer
for your property. Therefore, I will make it my duty to help you achieve those goals.
Whether you're an experienced investor or a first-time buyer, I can help you find the
property of your dreams," she reassured.
To potential clients worldwide and within the Guinean community, the real estate agent
offers a message of assurance.
According to Kadiatou Baldé, they won't be disappointed when they choose 'Kady
Homes' agency, a business partner of Homesmart Cross Island:
"Our clients, especially the Guinean community buying homes in the United States, I
want them to trust me because I will work for them, and I'm sure they will be 100%
satisfied. I control the prices, I tell them what to do, where they want to buy their homes,
and they will have a comfortable home.
For me, it's not about the money, but I want to satisfy everyone who works with me.
Those in Africa, all over the world, anyone who wants to buy homes in the West, I will be there for them. Even if they don't buy their homes in New York or Atlanta, Georgia, if they have questions, don't hesitate to contact me because I am a sister, a mother, an aunt, a little sister," she stated.
With such success in real estate in the United States, Kadiatou Baldé intends to have a positive impact on the development of her home country, Guinea. Already, she has started building a school and plans to create shopping centers in the near future:
"Real estate is my life because everyone knows what I do. I have a license in New York
and Atlanta, Georgia. So, for me, I really want to invest in real estate, help people, build
homes at lower prices so that I can help our community. And also in Africa, I really want
to build shopping centers so I can invest and expand our country, and I really want
Guineans to support me with that. I want to be a person with a positive impact on the
development of our country. Right now, I'm building a school in Guinea, as if to say that
I've started investing in real estate in our country. The school will open its doors soon,"
Owner of two houses today, married and a mother of three children with her dream car,
Kadiatou Baldé didn't imagine such a life 7 years ago.
She owes her success to determination, courage, and hard work. Hence, this special
message to women:
"I am a woman, I am a mother. After 7 years, today I have two houses in the United
States, my dream car, I am married, I didn't just sit idle because I know I have family in
Guinea, I really want to impact our country. I succeeded, got everything I wanted in the
United States because when you have two houses, a husband, and children, that's what
a woman seeks today.
What I used to do before, going door to door, I don't do that anymore.
Everyone calls me, I have connections. I've created a Facebook page.
Here in New York, there are over a million real estate agents
