Top one percent award winning Somali-American realtor.

Quote:
It's easy enough to have a successful year when the housing market is hot and homes are selling almost as fast as they're listed. However, it takes an agent with a special touch - an agent who knows his market and understands the psychology of buyers and sellers - to succeed in the slow market when the inventory is thick with unsold homes and buyers are far and few between.

That Realtor is Mohamud Ali, an agent with Long & Foster, who is licensed to sell in Virginia. In 2006, Mr. Ali sold more than 30 million in real estate - a significant achievement, as evidenced by him being awarded the title of TOP SALESPERSON for Long & Foster in 2006. Further, Mr. Ali is among the Top Twenty Producer by both Settled Units and by Grosss Commission in the United States of Virginia and West Virginia.

Long & Foster has honored Mr. Ali by inducting him into the prestigious Master's Club.

Let it be known, however, that Mr. Ali's recognition goes beyond the borders of Virginia and West Virginia. He is counted amoung the TOP ONE PERCENT of the Real Estate Agents in the United States - a significant achievement that sets him at the pinnacle of Realtors nationwide. - source

Having graduated from BOMI, Mohamud Ali began his first real estate venture working as a property manager with Charles E. Smith Real Estate Companies. After working for the Smith Companies for 12 years, he began managing both Residential and Commercial Properties in Crystal City, Arlington. After his successful ventures, he decided to change gears and began working for Long and Foster in 1998, quickly rising to become one of the most prosperous and leading realtors in the area.

He has been awarded with the impressive Top 1% in Nationwide Sales Award, and is in many prestigious clubs including the NVAR Top Producers Club, the 20 Million+ Club, and in 2004, he made it into the prestigious Masters Club. He is also an accredited buyer agent. In one year alone, he grossed over 28 million dollars in sales.

For years people have turned to Mohamud Ali when the time comes to make a move in Virginia. His deep commitment to the area and its residents show in the way he goes the extra mile to ensure his clients home sale or a purchase be a successful one. At the end of the transaction with Mohamud, clients agree it's his genuine caring of their needs that make him one of the top agents in his area and top 1% nationwide.

He is married to his lovely wife Amal, a general dentist who owns the successful Diamond Dental Care, and has three children, Farrah, Zachary, and Hannah. -- Source

I will not do any qarxis but I have quite a few self employed relatives that are doing pretty well. IMO, it seems like the only way that you can get rich these days if you don't have connections is to start your own hustle and use the money to invest in assets. I want to start my own hustle one of these days isA.

SOMALI IMMIGRANT EXPANDS BUSINESS WITH HER SECRET SAUCE
Quote:

A Cub Foods store in south Minneapolis brings to 86 the number of area retailers selling Sadia's Gourmet hot sauces.

Sadia Korad Abdi, who immigrated with her family from Somalia in 1999, was a lifelong cook working as a housekeeper in a nursing home in 2007 when she decided to turn her avocation into a business.

The busy working mom is now CEO of an eight-person business that expects to sell more than $1.2 million worth of wholesale products this year. Made at a Columbia Heights plant, Sadia's Gourmet sauces sell for up to $5 per 12-ounce bottle through retailers and her website, www.sadiassauce.com. --- Source
