We had the good fortune of connecting with Divine The Realtor and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Divine, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
ABS… not a 6 pack of abs but an acronym.. Always Be Selling. I missed out on so many opportunities by not letting everyone I know or came in contact with know about my business. It was awful to later find out they had a need for my products and services but didn’t know ab0ut my business to choose me.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I have two businesses currently in Real Estate and CBD.. My real estate business is called The Close Real Estate Group. I have been in real estate and licensed for almost 20 years. I enjoy helping buyers, sellers, investors, and developers with their real estate needs which is more than likely the largest investment of their life. I help all facets of individuals from the first-time homebuyer to the savvy investor who buys multiple properties at a time, and anyone in between and beyond.

My CBD business is called Revive Wellness Products. I custom formulated CBD products to aid in relieving pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and hair growth. I have customers that range from arthritis sufferers to those that deal with moderate anxiety and pain. I dreamed up this business during quarantine and I am thankful to now have a product that has seen amazing and life changing results. I am proud that I have a service oriented business and a product based business that revolves around HELPING people and changing their lives. That in itself is the best payoff for me. It wasn’t easy. In Atlanta, everyone and their cousin has a real estate license so it’s extremely competitive. CBD is still relatively new and not approved by the FDA as an entity that aids in so many ailments, that I ran into so many obstacles because although it’s legal, its considered to be in the high risk category with merchant services. There are so many things you must do to be “compliant”, that I wanted to give up. I’m so glad I didn’t because the testimonials make it so worth it. If I can say the lesson that I learned in this journey is to trust yourself, your product or service, as well as the process. If you believe in yourself, others will also.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take her to Little Five Points for some consignment shopping and to check out the neat stores in the area. We would definitely check out my favorite Tapas spot called The Consulate in the city, and I would have to take her to Iberian Pig for my favorite bacon wrapped dates. For a casual evening we would get some Pizza at Chicago’s Pizza and go next door to Patio for a nice cigar and some live music. If the weather is nice, we will rent some bikes at Piedmont Park and ride to the Beltline and take some selfies at Krog Street Tunnel against the graffiti walls.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Special shout out to my friend and social media followers for the support and encouragement.
