Chidi Akwari is one of the triads most successful real estate brokers by any statistical measure and one of its few career real estate professionals. The Greensboro News and Record has described him as “a real estate prodigy”. A chance meeting his freshman year at Guilford College led Chidi to an internship and then ultimately a full time position in new home sales with Fortune 500 building conglomerate D.R. Horton. After years spent developing new home communities with some of Greensboro’s most prominent builders he launched Akwari & Company in 2008 at 28. He did so as the youngest owner/operator in Guilford County, with nearly forty million dollars in real estate sales under his belt at the time and he never looked back.
A multi million dollar producer in every phase of his career in 2014 The Business Journal celebrated Chidi as one of their 40 Under 40, not only as a realtor and entrepreneur but as, “an investor of note with over 200 completed ‘remodel projects’”. The number has grown since 2014 and although Akwari & Company derives more than half of its annual gross from private off MLS investment projects Chidi’s number one focus has always been and always will be his clients. At an awards dinner in 2016 he was introduced by clients as, “a broker that is truly more concerned with the service people deserve than any ranking or his individual income”.
Selling real estate and remodeling homes both before and after the great recession has deeply ingrained in him the importance of guiding his clients towards sound buying and selling decisions, earning him clients for life. People that work with him appreciate the comfort of knowing they can call him for recommendations on anything at all and that he’ll be here continuing to assist them for decades to come. He’s been outspoken about the industry’s responsibility to produce truly capable agents to guide the public through some of the most substantial purchases of their lifetimes.
Chidi Akwari is a dedicated and knowledgeable broker, who can provide you with highly specialized information, connections, and market knowledge built from experience that will help you make the right decisions. Chidi provides outstanding counseling, education, and service through the process of buying or selling a home. His attention to detail and the emphasis he places on educating his clients during the transaction have earned him high praise as well as prestigious awards over the course of going on two decades continuously spent solely in the real estate business.
When not at work Chidi spends almost all of his free time with his family and with the remainder is deeply involved in the Greensboro community. He has served on the boards of multiple non proﬁts and currently serves as Vice Chair of the War Memorial Commission for the City of Greensboro as well as the executive board and the building committee of Habitat For Humanity and the executive board of the Greensboro Sports Foundation.
