Mrs Funke Kehinde is a big player in the real estate sector. The beautiful lady who is popularly called MFK is a Realtor and a successful one at that. This is why she is the toast of major property developers, not only in Lagos but across the country.
She’s is the founder of Brilliant Concepts; a real estate company that was set up a few years back to help redefine the real estate industry. She is also the President of Real Estate Millionaire, a real estate association that was founded about 4 years ago by a group of individuals. REMS as it is called is an association for realtors who share the same goals and objectives.
MFK has won several awards for her contributions to real estate sector. She keeps winning awards almost every month from different companies she consults for. She has also won several cars gifts. She’s won more than 20 cars for her outstanding performance for different real estate companies in Lagos. A few months backs she revealed her success story.
“My first office job was with a law firm where I was the personal assistant to the managing partner to the chamber for 2 years. While I was there, I had an encounter with cases relating to real estate and that spurred my interest in the profession. I got a better offer in another company that’s into oil and gas, real estate and Forex. In this company, I was the P.A to the executive director of property and anytime my boss was not around, I would engage myself in activities that’d make me learn and be more productive. I would meet the Head of Property and start learning about real estate. When she’s going for inspection or visiting a client, I would go with her. I was doing all these for the fun of it not knowing that it would later be a source to livelihood for me.”
“After six months, the Head of Property had to resign because she needed to relocate abroad because of her husband. So, her position was vacant and someone suggested that I could fill her vacant seat since I’ve been following her. Eventually, I was put under probation for six months and afterwards, the management gave me an appointment letter, confirming me as the Head of Property. That was how I took the job officially for ten years. Being the Head of this department, I had a lot of complaints from potential customers saying they needed a property that they could pay in instalment contrary to the company’s policy which only accepted outright payment.” A hard decision which eventually paid off
“Even though it’s a hard thing to resign after 10 years of hard work and dedication to the company, I knew it was time for me to leave and establish myself. I resigned and I started out my own company called Brilliantconcepts. With my wealth of experience, I started looking for properties with an instalment payment plan in areas that people could afford to live in. As I was doing this, I met people who asked me to mentor them in how they can become a real estate agent. This gave birth to REMs- Real Estate Millionaires, a body of professional realtors selling real estate the right way.”
