Mustafa Shabazz with Realty One

I didn’t choose a real estate career, it chose me! So often in life you do at the time what you must do, until you can do what you were destined to do!
Upon completing several years in several universities (Winston Salem State, UNC-Charlotte ), I married and began what would become my biggest challenge and most rewarding experience. Being a father of six and a grandfather of nine, I spent years in retail management. But, aside from the financial stability that this offered, there was still something missing.

I soon realized that my bigger purpose was in serving the community, helping to facilitate home ownership. Though the financial career can be and is often rewarding, the ultimate gratification is in helping to fulfill the dreams of home ownership to so many, who are genuinely grateful for the help.
My passion is real estate and I look forward each day to seeing who I can help avail themselves to the “American Dream.” For more info, see my website here.
