Top 25 Women of Atlanta: Angel Knight
Founder and CEO
Diamond Realty Brokers
Angel Knight is one of the remarkable women who made the list of this year’s Top 25 Women of Atlanta. As the founder and CEO of Diamond Realty Brokers, Knight manages agents of the real estate agency, oversees partnership alliances, and executes other intricate tasks that have made the ﬁrm a major success and the No. 1 searched real estate ﬁrm in several markets.
Knight credits her professional triumphs to several things, including her many real estate brokerage licenses, her knack for combining tech skills with real estate knowledge, and having Oprah Winfrey’s father, Vernon Winfrey, as a mentor. But Knight believes we can only truly be victorious if we teach others our secrets to being triumphant.
“Harriet Tubman said she could have freed more slaves if they knew they were slaves. I believe successful women can empower other women if women truly know they are powerful,” Knight says.
Other than motivating other women, Knight stays in-spired to keep winning because she feels carrying on a legacy of greatness to her son and descendants is essential.
“Starting my own real estate agency over a decade ago was a result of not wanting to settle, even as a single mom,” she recalls. “A part of my life’s mission is to leave a stable ﬁnancial legacy for not just my son, but for his children’s children.”
As a determined woman in her ﬁeld who even man-aged to keep Diamond Realty Brokers alive during the economic recession, the real estate expert has vital ad-vice for those seeking a similar career path. She says that after obtaining a real estate license, create a business plan for business development, marketing and transaction management; and incorporate real estate technology into simplifying your day-to-day tasks.
