Noel Mwamba Real estate broker

Mwamba Realty Atlanta LLC

What was your most interesting job before going into real estate?
I worked at the United Nations in New York for over a decade. During this time, I was able to work on projects that assisted groups of people that faced various difficult challenges in their lives, communities and countries. I had the opportunity to visit 23 different countries while employed by the U.N.
Where did you grow up?
Lusaka, Zambia.
Growing up, what did you want to be?
My father, Simon James Mwamba, worked as a dedicated civil servant in the Zambian government for many years, and I wanted to follow in his footsteps. In particular, I was fascinated by his tenure as a diplomat for the government of Zambia in Washington, D.C. He was my idol. A colossus in my extended family.
What do you do to relax when you’re stressed?
When I am stressed, I listen to jazz music and enjoy a cocktail, watch movies with my wife, coach my son’s U14 soccer team or go jogging.
If you could meet any well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why?
It would probably be an athlete, since I am such a huge sports fan. Michael Jordan. Arguably the best to play the game of basketball. His desire to win, motivation, strength, tenacity and hard work ethic were a level above his competitors.
What is Atlanta’s best-kept secret?
The Atlanta jazz music scene. It’s amazing, the number of excellent venues in Atlanta where you can catch fine jazz music.
What do you love most about the industry?
The real estate business provides a unique opportunity for people that come and live in the U.S. to own their homes and elevate their financial status. The mission of Mwamba Realty Atlanta LLC is to promote homeownership in the diaspora through the acquisition of real estate. In addition, we encourage wealth creation in various communities by investing in real estate. These are communities where homeownership levels have historically been very low. We are helping many families, in particular from Africa, to build a better life for themselves and future generations. Helping them do this means so much to us.
How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents?
I am in the real estate business to help people as best as I can. I go out of my way to make the home-purchase process as simple and stress-free as possible for my clients. I educate them on the importance of owning their own properties and building wealth. The most important goal for me is to help, help, help! This is my recipe for success in the real estate business.
What is the most difficult aspect of your job?
Breaking out of my comfort zone to adjust to the modern-day means of marketing and advertising has been an adjustment for me. I am referring to the social media and technology era. Activities such as shooting advertising videos and having to be out to network with clients and colleagues in the industry. This is something I must do more of and have to get used to. I always remind myself that success is found outside of our comfort zone.
What’s your best advice for generating new leads?
I believe that success in this field of work is dependent on building a strong referral network. Anyone that hopes to be successful as an agent must have a string of very happy past clients that will keep sending leads their way. And the only way that they can accomplish this is by providing efficient, excellent and professional Realtor services to their clients and helping them as best as they can. The previous clients will never forget them and keep sending them great leads.
What are you binge-watching/reading/listening to lately?
I was reading The Book of Joy by Dalai Lama and the Late Bishop Desmond Tutu.
What’s your favorite meal in Atlanta?
Korean BBQ – 9292 in Duluth.
Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Atlanta?
The Westin Hotel Tower in Buckhead.
What’s the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to you on the job?
It’s both weird and cool when I visit the first recommended listing with my investor clients and they tell me to send in the offer. They will buy it.
What’s one thing people are surprised to learn about you?
I would consider myself a popular loner.
What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
The JW Marriott Hotel in Cancun, Mexico. It’s pure relaxation, peace, class, sophistication and elegance.
What is your favorite city after Atlanta?
In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry?
Learn from the successful experts. Listen! Design your own brand.
What’s your favorite real estate iPhone/Android app?
Showing Time
Who are your favorite people to follow on social media?
Inspirational and spiritual personalities. Motivators. Successful personalities that fly under the radar.
What are your social media handles?
