We had the good fortune of connecting with Samantha Johannes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Samantha, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
I think the thing that is most responsible for my success, or should I say the people, are my parents. Seeing how they provided for our family and took us to the next level as immigrants only gave me more hunger and drive to do the same for myself and my offspring.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a licensed Realtor in Virginia with almost a decade of Property Management knowledge with also a splash of investing.

I have always dabbled in multiple activities at once and Real Estate creates a life where I can monetize off of multiple streams uncapped in the same or related industries.

I am working to become a pilar of knowledge in my respective communities while also creating that same dream for myself.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Depending on what city I’m in will determine where but I’m always down for a lounge or Daiquiri bar . If I’m in ATL where my immediate family is residing then I will forever go to Suite Lounge or Fat Tuesday’s.

If I’m in Richmond VA, where I and my daughter are currently located then I would go to Bellos Lounge where I also work part time or to any food truck festival going on in the city. The food events in Richmond are pretty delicious.

When I visit my Alma Mater in Tallahassee, Fl then I have to go to Top Flite on a Wednesday or Saturday! Also been a fan of Primetime last I visited.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Florida & M University, Zeta Phi Beta- Gamma Alpha Chapter, my family, my mentors. All of these individuals and groups have molded me into who I am personally and professionally.
