Kofi Nartey is the real deal. As Director of the Sports & Entertainment Division at Compass Real Estate, he utilizes his more than 15 years of experience to help his A-List clientele realize their dreams when buying, selling, or investing in property in L.A.'s white hot real estate market.
"The unique lifestyles of athletes and entertainers require specialized services that guard their privacy and protect them contractually," Nartey says. "We have been fortunate to use that understanding to build what is arguably the largest national database of celebrity, sports and luxury real estate clients."
The Nartey Sports Foundation, which he and his wife– a fellow athlete– Mimi launched last year, continues to break boundaries with sports-related interventions for underserved youth.
"We recently held a fund-raising screener of in Search of Greatness and are sending 100 pairs of soccer cleats to Ghanaian athletes donated by a group of middle school students here in L.A.," Nartey shares. "We are also very excited for our second annual gala in July. Athletics gave us a great foundation of hard work, teamwork and leadership, so being able to provide opportunities for your sports participation is amazing."
Nartey's impressive resume as a college and pro athlete, an actor with more than 10-years of experience, an MBA, a celebrity and luxury real estate correspondent and author of Sellebrity: How to Build a Successful Sports and Entertainment Based Business, has provided him with an exceptional advantage working with his high-level clientele and is helping to drive his newest venture.
"This summer we're launching 90210.com: A Media Company, which will cover all aspects of our business, from outstanding properties to luxury lifestyles to world-class brands we work with through video content. It will be an outstanding way to expand our already growing network."
