Bo Menkiti is the founder and CEO of the Menkiti Group, a real estate services enterprise dedicated to enhancing the fabric of life in America’s urban neighborhoods through the strategic development, management, and sale of residential and commercial property. He also founded and became CEO of Keller Williams Capital Properties (KWCP), a leading regional network of brokerages in the Mid-Atlantic with 1,000 agents in eight offices.
Under Menkiti’s leadership, The Menkiti Group and KWCP have received numerous awards for innovation, entrepreneurship, record growth, industry performance and overall achievement. He credits the companies’ success to the diverse team of talented and dedicated people they have assembled. Because of their commitment to the companies’ principles and core beliefs, the teams have closed some very important deals and maintained growth.
More importantly, Menkiti is committed to promoting the greater good. “For me, and for our companies, we define success and making news through impact. That means that we have harnessed the power of business to solve our community’s most pressing social needs,” he says. “We are a double bottom line enterprise, working as socially-minded, for-profit companies in a successful and sustainable way so that we may invest in neighborhoods to transform them into vibrant communities.” In 2015, he created the Capital Properties Menkiti Group Foundation to devote resources to serving its community in the areas of housing, youth, education and entrepreneurship.
