I am the owner/broker of Foxworth Realty, a unique real estate brokerage that is local and global. I am the first brown and/or black person to be the president of FIABCI-USA (International Real Estate Federation) in 70 years. In June 2022 I will be sworn into the FIABCI-ORG Board of Directors in Paris. I am also a Trustee for the FIABCI scholarship fund. Of course, I am actively involved with the Harlem community, serving on Boards and Advisory Boards as well as a philanthropist.
What have you been doing since the pandemic?
Filming videos utilizing footage done before COVD-19 to sell real estate, Zoom calls, speaking on national radio and other podcasts, panelist and guest on worldwide real estate Zoom’s. The aforementioned was the catalyst that was the reason that The Foxworth Theory began.
Why did you choose real estate as a career?
I was looking for a new space to open a gallery after I had three successive floods in my gallery on East 65thStreet. The last occurred before I opened a Magritte show. The real estate professionals took me to every location then what I wanted.

How has the pandemic impacted your career and the world of real estate?
I have been creative, pivoted and have sold more during this period than in 2019.

I am the President of FIABCI-USA (2021-2022), FIABCI-ORG Trustee and was elected in December 2021to be on the World Board of Directors for FIABCI-ORG (2022-2025)
Can you give our readers some insight as to what you’re working on for 2022?
I want to be able to get enough professors(Offering free memberships) from HBCU’s, state and city colleges and universities to become members of FIABCI to enable their students to apply for scholarships from FIABCI-ORG. They should be from any field that is used in real estate, attorneys, developers, architects, finance etc. I want The Foxworth Theory to become local, national and global because I feel that it will give a history of the people whose shoulders we are standing on that have given us the opportunities that we are capitalizing on now. I also hope that it will inspire, help and engage our youth.
Please leave us with some encouraging words?
Follow your mind. Never let anyone tell you that you cannot succeed and/or do anything that you want. Use the negative as a positive and it will become your strength. Get a mentor or follow someone’s journey that you admire.
