After graduating from Eastern Michigan University, Akia pursued a career in the building industry. She broke into the game by working with Jenkins Construction and Ghafari Associates LLC as a project coordinator and document controller. As an African American woman in a male-dominated environment, Akia learned the ropes, took pride in mastering every task, and overcame workplace adversity and stereotypes by being excellent. The born entrepreneur was assigned secure outside vendors; she saw and seized an opportunity and formed Brown Community Builders; creating jobs and another revenue source. Real Estate is just in her blood; at 19 Akia saved $5,000 in a shoe and purchased her 1st investment property. In less than 3 months, she flipped that home, brought 2 more [which remain in her family to this day], and became versed in the house flipping, rehabbing, mortgage, and property management games. When she realized that she could save money and make her business more efficient, she earned her real estate licence in both Michigan and Georgia and a builder’s license even though it took her 3 times to pass. When the market fell and fluctuated, the feisty Akia just reinvented herself and thrived with the times; she currently owns close to 30 properties.
