Augustine Ewiah | Ghana | Living Proof!!

After returning back from the States, I had difficulties finding an accommodation using a professional service. I realized there was a need for this service, and I am a living proof. My positive, invigorated approach appeals to new and experienced homebuyers wishing to navigate complex real estate processes in an easily understandable fashion. Every property is somebody's dream.As a representative and founder; I am passionate about architecture, design and making a positive impact. I believe being trustworthy starts with being dedicated to your clients and serving their needs. The client has to come first. I know that, there cannot be understanding of a clients’ motivations unless they are listened to – sounds simple, but I pride myself on listening, taking the clients wishes and getting down to work. A lot seems to be going on or happening in Ghana, that the mainstream media does not share especially when it comes to housing or real estate. While there are tons of gorgeous homes all over Ghana, I focus primarily on the ones up for sale by real estate developers such as Trasacco, Swami India, Mobus Properties, Imperial Homes, etc. Moreover, many of these are picture perfect and may not necessarily reflect what they look like in real life. That’s up to you to decide. That’s where the adventure is - for you to discover. Our target market are expatriates, so they are used to our services. Cameo 1 Homes is a real estate brokerage firm that operates in all parts of Ghana with its headquarters located at One Airport Square, Airport City Accra. At Cameo 1, we pride ourselves in providing diverse services under the real estate portfolio. We provide innovative solutions to all real estate challenges. Our MISSION --- To help businesses, property owners and clients realize their dreams of owning, selling, leasing or renting high end and affordable properties in Ghana.


What were the biggest initial hurdles to building your business and how did you overcome them?

I realized few Ghanaians were not used to exceptional professional lifestyle services, so we had to educate some of our client.


Did you ever deal with contention from your family and friends concerning your entrepreneurial pursuits?

How did you handle it? What would you do differently in hindsight?

Yes, I was told it won’t work and that I was wasting my time. However, I knew it will work especially for people just like me who are relocating to Ghana and need the same services they are use to. I kept pushing.


What books are you currently reading? And your recommendation for entrepreneurs to read?

I am currently reading "The millionaire Real Estate agent by Gary Keller"


What would you say was the single most influential factor in your business success?

Listening more, being honest, being consistent


What advice would you give to an upcoming entrepreneur locally and internationally?

Following your gut, plus your hardwork attitude - then everything should align. Network, network, network - whenever you get the opportunity. Don't underestimate your ability. Start little, be smart and be compassionate.
