Agent Snapshot: Keith Archangel, Realtor, Acadia Homes and Neighborhoods


Keith Archangel is a Realtor with Acadia Homes and Neighborhoods.

What was your first job in the realty industry? My first job in the realty industry was selling the general market. I went on to work for builders in the new homes capacity. I like this world much better.

Where did you grow up? I grew up all over. My father was a pilot for a major U.S. airline, so we traveled quite a bit. I am originally from Brooklyn.

What is your favorite free-time activity? Traveling!

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? Talk on the phone with my three year old nephew, my mother and bask in good massage.

Growing up, what did you want to be? This is interesting. I wanted to be an attorney, but I was naturally better in math and science.  I majored in chemistry at GA Tech, and quickly found out that I had a natural passion for people. With that said, I went into pharmaceutical sales, which led me into my passion: new home sales.  All the while, I’m holding a second job as a international flight attendant with a major airline.

If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? It would be Donald Trump. I love the risks that he has taken, and I would love to pick his brain apart and get pointers on how to be a better business mogul.

Where is your favorite place to hang out? At home!

What do you love most about the industry? I love the negotiating, but most importantly, I love being the force that brings buyers and sellers together to reach a common goal: the American Dream of homeownership!

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? Because I am a good human being first; second, I have a natural passion to serve people!

What is the most difficult aspect of your job? There is nothing difficult about my job, because I embrace any hiccup that may arise.

Where do you go to network and meet new clients? I am a bit of a socialite, so I network through friends and on the Internet.

What has been your greatest accomplishment? Obtaining my BS in Chemistry from GA Tech.

What was the last good movie you saw or book you read? The Best Man Holiday.

What is your favorite restaurant? Maggiano’s.

Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Atlanta? The Westin Hotel.

What kind of car do you drive? 2012 BMW 528i.

What is your favorite city after Atlanta? Paris!

In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry? Always remain ethical.

What’s your favorite Real Estate iPhone/Android app? LinkedIn.

Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter? Donald Trump!
