Cadillac and Modern Luxury Feature Globl RED and Nartey Sports Foundation

Read the original article here


Kofi Nartey, Founder and CEO of GLOBL RED Real Estate and Development, and Mimi Nartey, Director of Community and Philanthropy at GLOBL RED are the definition of a power couple. The duo seamlessly balances multiple facets of their lifestyles, from leading a thriving luxury real estate firm, to raising two children, to giving back to their community through the Nartey Sports Foundation, which supports pathways for underserved youth to experience the power of sports. “We want to allow people to participate in sports and have those benefits of teamwork, of resiliency, of self-efficacy, all of the things that we've extracted from sports that now we can apply to all other areas of our lives.” says Kofi.

The Foundation has supported causes as diverse as providing ballet interventions for juvenile detention centers to funding a collegiate scholarship to the first African American rodeo athlete at Fresno State. “Giving back is also a part of a larger purpose. “Both Kofi and I have fathers who are immigrants… and for them to come from another place, sacrifice so much and accomplish so much, and we really decided we also want to build upon the work that they have put in and build up the family legacy.” explains Mimi.

All of this success comes with considerable work, and the multi-functionality of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade fits perfectly into the busy lives of the Narteys, transitioning from dropping off the kids at school to high-level client meetings to sports practices. The cutting edge augmented reality navigation comes in handy as the family travels across Los Angeles, while the spaciousness of the interior and up to 121.0 cubic feet of cargo space is perfect for transporting equipment and gear for the whole family. As Mimi sums up, “The Cadillac Escalade is an SUV that can transition with us through all of these different identities throughout the day from mom to business person to philanthropist.''

Luxury leaders agree: digital marketing rests on authenticity.

Nartey Sports Foundation Funds Volleyball Court at School for the Deaf in Ghana

Volleyball Court at the Tetteh Ocloo State School for the Deaf in Ghana.

We were very pleased to collaborate with Mr. Hamidu Yussif and the Tetteh Ocloo State School for the Deaf. In his compelling grant application, Mr. Yussif wrote:

“I transferred to the State School for the Deaf (SSD) in 2002 after I lost my hearing, and the school has nurtured me and taught me to become who I am today. It was at SSD that I first began to learn sign language and develop my identity as a Deaf person. My experiences there helped me realize that deafness is not a curse. Before , I thought I was the only Deaf person in the world, but my education at SSD exposed me to others just like me all over the world. Seeing successful Deaf individuals and role models gave me a powerful feeling of optimism…

…SSD has improved greatly over the years with many more educational facilities, including classrooms, a library, a clinic, a dining hall, and dormitories. Unfortunately, it does not have any fields where students can exercise or practice sports during their leisure time. Imagine being stuck in a boarding school with no sports or recreational facilities! During my time as student, we participated in various sports activities in district and inter-regional sports competitions, but we had to walk three miles away to use a neighborhood school field to perform training. I want to make it easier for the current students at SSD pursue their passion for sports. Volleyball is the best fit for what the students and staff currently need, as there is only limited land available. Both the boys and the girls will be excited to be able to play. Eventually, we hope to gain enough land to build a soccer field and netball court. For now, however, the focus is on the volleyball court.”

We look forward to supporting this community with additional sports facilities in the near future!


Globl RED Luxury Development Partner Silversands in Grenada Featured in Architectural Digest

By David C. Kaufman for Architectural Digest | Read the original article here

Why the Tiny Island of Grenada Is Luxury Real Estate's Next Big Thing

Thanks to resorts like Silversands—and its sleek, chic villa collection—the southern Caribbean nation is finally ready for its close-up.

At the southern end of the Caribbean, barely 100 miles from Venezuela, the tiny tear-shaped island of Grenada is finally ready for its global real estate close-up. Having long escaped the ravages of mass tourism, Grenada’s sheer under-the-radarness has become one of its most important selling points. There are almost no cookie-cutter resorts, few multinational businesses and—most crucially— for the majority of the pandemic, very little Covid-19 outbreaks.

Indeed, since the pandemic began Grenada—like other members of the Commonwealth—has taken an extreme “no Covid-19” approach to the crisis. That has meant strict testing for travelers before departure, a second test upon arrival, and mandatory in-resort quarantine until those second results are revealed. Full vaccination is also a must.

While certainly stringent, the impact of these measures was apparent—for most of the pandemic, Grenada was a place of no masks, no curfews, no sick people. "Sadly, like the rest of the world, the Delta variant has since changed our reality,” explains Kandace Douglas, real estate sales and marketing director of Silversands villas. And as a result the island, though still less impacted than the rest of the world, is grappling with the pandemic.

Nonetheless, the country has implemented a range of strict containment policies — and right on time. Because these efforts comes as the island is finally waking up to its luxury real estate potential. And a large part of this is due to Silversands, a 43-room resort that opened in 2018 on a prime slice of Grand Anse Beach—Grenada’s finest sandy stretch and one of the best beaches in the Caribbean.

Developed by Egyptian telecom mogul Naguib Sawiris through his firm Ora Developers, Silversands’ ultra-contemporary, white-washed aesthetic is the antithesis of Caribbean cliché. Forget thatched-roof huts or “chic shacks” perched over the seashore on stilts. Rather, Silversands’ rooms—spread over a pair of three-story wings—feature clean lines, subtle patterns, and constant Caribbean views. The vibe—especially in its light-filled spa—feels akin to a sleek branch of, say, Soho House—only dropped in the southern Caribbean. And Silversands’ pool, all 328 feet of it, is the longest in the entire Caribbean.

This same feeling extends to Silversands’ eight private villas, which have recently hit the market priced from $7 million to $14.5 million, depending on location (though first-mover incentives mean early buyers can secure discounts). Hidden from the main resort behind a subtle yet substantial wall, the villas are nothing if not spectacular. Four are perched on a low hill just above the main resort with prime Caribbean views. Four others are set directly on the sand just feet from the sea, as close as you can get to the waves without going for a swim.

No matter the location, the villas are substantial: 22,000-square-foot plots, 2,200+ square-feet of outdoor space, four primary bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and massive private swimming pools and bijoux plunge pools. Designed by Reda Amalou and Stephanie Ledoux of Paris-based architecture firm AW2—responsible for a wide range of Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, and Six-Senses resorts worldwide—the villas come fully furnished with Molteni, B&B Italia, and Bruno Moinard pieces. Kitchen appliances are courtesy of Gaggenau and Miele, while the outdoor and indoor showers are from Hansgrohe. Villa buyers have access to all main resort amenities: spa, two restaurants, concierge and house-cleaning services. Owners also benefit from expedited immigration upon arrival and transport to and from the resort via Tesla, a nice and unexpected touch. “It’s a natural and elegant design aesthetic that honors the surrounding landscape and beachfront location,” Douglas explains.

The villas’ serious pricing—in line with better-known (and far better trod) islands like Barbados or St. Barts—reflects their serious amenities. But part of each sale supports the West Indies School of Hospitality Foundation, Douglas says, which offers free hospitality courses to 6,000 Grenadians in partnership with e-Cornell, the online certification arm of Cornell University. “Barry Collymore, chairman of the Grenada Tourism Authority, founded the WISH Foundation with the support of Naguib Sawiris,” Douglas continues. “Barry started the program in an effort to effect positive change in the lives of Grenadians and maximize the tourism industry, which was devastated by Covid-19.”

Warm weather and sandy shorelines are not the only reason ultra-high-net-worth buyers (UHNW) are setting their sites on Grenada. The island also participates in the type of citizenship programs increasingly popular from the Caribbean to Europe to the South Pacific. In Grenada’s case, its Citizen by Investment program offers Grenadian passports to folks who invest a minimum of $200,000 into the island. “This is the icing on the cake,” Douglas notes. “Over the past year and a half, citizenship diversification has become more important than ever. According to a recent Douglas Elliman–Knight Frank Wealth Report, 24 percent of UHNW are interested in second types of citizenships.”

While countries such as Malta have been rocked by citizenship-related corruption and even murder, Grenada’s version is fairly stringent. “The program’s uniqueness stems from its in-depth, rigorous, and thorough due diligence process that acts as a filter in seeking worthy investors,” explains Afi Ventour de Vega, a prominent Grenadian lawyer and founder of Afi Ventour & Co.

And Grenada’s citizenship offering is not only secure but expansive. “The program leads as the only state in the Caribbean whereby successful applicants are eligible to apply to live and work in the United States of America through the E2 Visa Investor Treaty that Grenada enjoys with the USA,” Ventour continues. “Successful applicants enjoy visa-free travel to over 140 countries worldwide, including the United Kingdom, China, Russia, Schengen, and the UAE.”

The citizenship program is available to most top-tier properties in Grenada that meet the financial requirements. This includes villa projects such as the handful of estates still available at Laluna, a 30-acre resort completed over 20 years ago and popular with fashion types such as model Kate Moss and Vogue editor in-chief Anna Wintour and the crew from Sports Illustrated, who shot its iconic swimsuit issue at Laluna back in 2003.

In 2009, Laluna founder and former Giorgio Armani executive Bernardo Bertucci developed seven villas, of which four are still available. Priced between $3.9 million and $7.4 million, the villas (or Estates) are perched on a hillside and offer serious panoramic sea views along with a host of financial incentives (including no sales tax, most citizenship fees waived, and a generous revenue-sharing arrangement if owners opt to place their villas in the resort’s rental pool). The villas also offer families an opportunity to enjoy Laluna, whereas the main resort is adults only.

“Why the villas?” Bertucci asks. “The idea came to me in 2009 just after the financial crisis when so many companies working on new hotels left Grenada. I saw an opportunity and received great help from the local government because I was the only one doing something like this at the time.”

Since then Bertucci has been joined by Silversands on Grenada, along with additional high-profile hotel brands including Sandal’s, which opened a resort-only property in 2014, and Kimpton, which is building a resort and real estate project at the opposite side of Grand Anse Bay from Silversands that is slated to debut in 2022.

Back at Silversands, which looks to be booked solid for the upcoming holiday season, plans are already in motion to expand the company’s island footprint. First up are a pair of distinctive projects, the 30-room Beach House by Silversands and the 72-room Silversands Legacy, which will be anchored by a 100-meter (328 foot) pool. The Beach House is scheduled for completion in 2022, while the latter (which features real estate) will participate in Grenada’s citizenship program. Longer term, the large-scale Port Louis Maritime Village and Marina development and more intimate Riviera resort project will further solidify Ora Caribbean’s commanding presence on the island.

Nearly 40 years after U.S. forces invaded Grenada and ended its nascent New Jewel revolutionary movement, the island’s spirit of activism and self-reliance remains strong. With new resort and real estate developments—coupled with the island’s ambitious citizenship program—Grenada is focusing its future on hospitality’s highest end. And the Grenadian people are clearly the island’s key to success, propelling their nation far beyond its traditional cash generators, such as chocolate and spices.

“The Grenadian people and the country's raw, authentic beauty are what makes it stand out from the rest of the Caribbean,” Douglas says. “Our developer really understands how important it is to preserve the authenticity of the island while still ensuring the locals are supported through the thriving hospitality and real estate movement.”


Globl RED Lists Hollywood Actor Lance Gross’ Penthouse

By Jack Flemming for Los Angeles Times | Read the original article here

Actor Lance Gross offers up his modern Hollywood penthouse.

After a decade in Hollywood, Lance Gross is ready for a scene change. The “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” actor just listed his architectural penthouse for $1.125 million, or $300,000 more than he paid in 2010.

A modern concoction of concrete and glass, the three-bedroom condo was designed by Clive Wilkinson, the South African architect who also worked on the design for KCRW-FM’s offices in Santa Monica.

It’s one of nine units in 10 Palms, a striking complex on Franklin Avenue wrapped in white stucco, sheet metal panels and red cedar siding. Gross said the architecture and design are what drew him there a decade ago.

A sky-lit great room with oversize windows and accent walls anchors the home, and a floating staircase ascends to the dining room and kitchen. The nearly 2,000-square-foot floor plan also holds an office, primary suite with wood ceilings and bonus room decked out with a baseball scoreboard.

The unit includes underground parking, as well as a turf balcony overlooking Hollywood.

A native of Oakland, Gross has starred in multiple Tyler Perry productions including “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” “Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns” and “Tyler Perry’s The Paynes.” Later this month, he’s set to appear in the Fox drama series “Our Kind of People.”

Kofi Nartey and Michael Joseph of Globl RED hold the listing.

Raiders to Real Estate: Success Beyond the Game

By Julie Nelson for Ascending Athletes | Read the original article here

“You are your adjectives, not your nouns. We are not defined by the nouns. We are not defined by being a football player. We are not defined by being a dad, a lawyer, an attorney, real estate agent…we are not defined by that. What we are defined by are the adjectives that we bring to those nouns.”

That ‘Kofi-ism’ has been a leading factor for former NFL wide receiver, Kofi Nartey, in maintaining his drive and level of success throughout his professional career.

After suffering a career-ending injury during a stint with the Oakland Raiders in 1998, the Los Angeles native found himself asking the same question many professional athletes are left with at the end of their careers, ‘what am I going to do next?’

“I did not have an immediate ‘Plan B’, said Nartey. “I was kind of left on my own to figure things out. Unfortunately, I also didn’t have mentors or access to some of the programs that are available now.”

For the University of California, Berkeley graduate, it was a time of several different jobs and an exploratory process. He ventured into everything from wealth management to Enterprises’ management training program, and ultimately, made the move to back home to Los Angeles to pursue another passion, acting.

“My first acting job was The Young and the Restless where I played a police officer,” said the former Hollywood actor. “Fast forward, I did a bunch of TV shows and movies which was great. Ultimately, I was starting to look at what was going to be the next career for me. I knew that some of the travel related to the acting was going to be a challenge once I started having children, so I started looking at real estate.”

In 2003, Nartey earned his real estate license and in 2006, added Broker to his portfolio. He began to wind down the acting engagements and was able to focus on real estate where he harnessed a lot of the skills he had already established and built up even as he was pursuing different careers. He would go on to achieve his MBA from Pepperdine in 2012.

He worked for a few different firms and polished his leadership skills managing teams, but still lacked having mentors to help guide him throughout the process. Nartey embraced this challenge and began reading different articles and books just trying to catch up on the knowledge and jargon he needed to know.

“I call those days the ‘failing forward’ days, where I made a lot of mistakes, but I learned a lot.”

However, he welcomed the adversity and found himself doing what he did to prepare for game days, and ultimately, figured out how to be successful. He has been establishing his brand for over six years now and decided he wanted to start focusing on clientele in the sports and entertainment industry. He prides himself on being sought out by those looking for high levels of access and expertise.

His understanding of the sports and entertainment niche has enabled him to effectively service hundreds of professional athletes, entertainers, and affluent clientele.

“I had a lot of contacts in sports,” said Nartey. “I had a lot of contacts in entertainment. Understanding their lifestyles and how things were different, it was something that I knew. I started thinking about ways to protect them better and really started building a brand.”

When it comes to paying it forward, the leading authority in luxury real estate has taken it upon himself to provide mentorship helping other professional athletes wanting to make a transition into the real estate world by upholding transparency and making sure they understand all aspects of the business and necessary action items.

He is wired to inspire. He is driven daily to not only push himself to realize his full potential but also help others realize their potential. Nartey also believes that at a certain point, you are going to be redefining yourself and there should be a ‘slash’ incorporated into everyday life. However you describe yourself, those are all transferable attributes to another career.

“When I’ve talked to the guys at events, I’ve talked about this concept of ‘slash,’ where even in your nouns it should be slash something else,” said the former wide receiver. “Yes, you are a football player/ businessperson/ father/; whatever those nouns are, but there should be a slash. Then you are going to utilize your adjectives to apply those to a new career choice. The league may take away the title football player, but they don’t take away the man behind the title.”

He emphasizes the importance of hard work, teamwork, and resilience – the things that really play into most careers that one pursues.

“I think that we all have our individual goals and responsibilities and I know that for me, I’ve had a lot of feedback that what I’m doing and the level I’m doing it at is inspiring to others,” said Nartey. “I know that I have a responsibility to lean into that and push for success and even visibility around that success so people can continue to feel inspired and know that the possibilities are out there. Even in this career that I’m in now, there’s more I want to do. I have a lot more to accomplish and that drives me daily. I also want to create those opportunities for my own family.”

Earlier this year, Nartey launched SOCIETY Real Estate + Development to add broker-owner of his own luxury brokerage firm to his list of accomplishments. He previously served as the director of the Sports and Entertainment Division for the boutique firm The Agency and was a top producer for Keller Williams. He also founded and managed the National Sports and Entertainment division for Compass.

SOCIETY Real Estate + Development is a private real estate firm that offers distinctive services for discerning clients. SOCIETY brings a refined, yet holistic approach to the industry. With over 100 years of combined experience and over $6B in transactional experience, they assist clients in acquiring and selling prestigious properties, while providing unique opportunities to build out real estate portfolios. They understand the luxury lifestyle and deliver it — quickly, efficiently, and elegantly.

Along with his numerous accolades including publishing his book, Sellebrity: How to Build a Successful Sports & Entertainment Based Business, he has made appearances on national television and in media outlets and has been featured as an agent on HGTV’s “Selling LA” and Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing.”



The Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas makes sense now and forever.

By Kofi Nartey

I recently took a “work trip” to the Four Seasons Los Cabos at Costa Palmas. It is hard to call a luxurious stay, fine dining, and touring luxury properties “work.” I also made the wise choice to turn this into a “bring your wife to work” trip. A choice that should keep me married for years to come. (And, yes the word “work” will have to be in quotes whenever referenced regarding a stay at this resort). Full disclosure, I have been working as a brand ambassador for the Costa Palmas real estate development for almost a year, but it wasn’t until I took this trip to the resort that I truly appreciated how amazing the offering is. Bias aside, let me break down our stay into its key components.


The idea of traveling during Covid-19 can create anxiety and fear. We were definitely nervous and cautious about navigating the airport, airplane and the resort itself. We were pleasantly surprised with the overall process. The airport was not nearly as crowded as usual, and had several safety measures in place. Masks and social distancing were in full effect, and we opted to fly first class, where the seats are already more spread out. Don’t get me wrong, we still implemented our own supplementary measures. We constantly used hand sanitizer, and my wife did the whole “Naomi Campbell wipe down” of the airplane seats.

The hotel also had its own safety protocols, designed in part through their partnership with Johns Hopkins Hospital and accurately titled “Lead With Care.” Everyone wore masks, all dining experiences were socially distanced, and the overall resort was running at a limited capacity.


Upon arrival at the resort we were warmly greeted by my colleagues and the hotel staff. Check in was smooth and easy, and a golf cart took us to our room. In case you didn’t know, The Four Seasons has something called “The Four Seasons University,” where people are trained on the nuances of high-level customer service…and it shows.

Our suite was an Ocean-View Room with Plunge Pool and it was perfect for the two of us. There was a king size bed with pillows from heaven, a seating area with a couch and dining table, a modern open concept shower and separate soaking tub, and dressing area with full length mirrors and perfect vanity lighting. All of this opened up to our private patio with a plunge pool and views to the ocean.

The resort was extremely walkable, with the beach always within reach. We enjoyed everything from the numerous swimming pools, to the well-appointed gym, an afternoon on the beach with food and beverage service, and even the golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II. My golf game is sub-par (figuratively, not literally), but I enjoyed the beauty and forgiving fairways of the course.

During one of my meetings, I arranged for my wife to have a spa day that included a massage she would later describe as one of the best she’d ever had.


The food was exquisite. For ease, we pre-planned our dinners and made reservations for each night. We left the morning and midday meals open for flexibility and variety. The summer heat draws you to the pools and ocean during the day, but make outdoor evening dining the perfect option. Our first night, we experienced the wood fire-grilled flavors of Limón. The flavors were smoky, authentic and fresh.

Day two, we experienced delicious street tacos, handmade guacamole, and margaritas at a hidden, locally-vibed restaurant called “Jimmy’s Big Shot”, built into the back-nine of the golf course. Those margaritas helped wash away the pains of my bogey filled afternoon. For dinner that night, we had a special experience (see “DINING - NEXT LEVEL” below).

On our third night, we experienced Milos, the Greek inspired seafood affair overlooking the beach. The seafood is so fresh that some of it is still moving on the ice you select it from. We doubled back to Milos for breakfast on our last day to try their legendary French toast. It lived up to every bite.

These were just a few of the onsite dining options and we look forward to trying others upon our return. Don’t forget to try Costa Palmas’ own tequila, CP73 (in moderation of course).


If you are looking for an exceptional, unforgettable, magical, and beyond impressive dining/lifestyle experience, they also offer a “Romantic Dinner on the Beach.” I planned this in advance to be a surprise for my wife. The experience over-delivered! I may have even set the bar too high for future experiences (guess that means we just have to go back there again). At least I will always be able to say, “Remember that romantic dinner on the beach?”

I won’t spoil it for future connoisseurs, but the food, service, sunset, and starry night were more than I could have asked for. It was worth every penny and more, but don’t ask me how much extra I had to pay for the shooting star that flew over during dessert.


You can “repeat” the experience with frequent visits to the hotel, or you can own it with the numerous Costa Palmas real estate options. In addition to the amazing Four Seasons hotel and resort, the opportunities for home ownership are exclusive, yet abundant. I will be writing a separate piece on the real estate (as it deserves its own spotlight), but will give you a quick overview to set the stage.

The options include everything from condominiums, with roof decks, to custom beach front estates, with several choices in between. You can opt for a move-in ready property, or buy a lot and work with the architects to customize your ultimate home.

All owners enjoy the amenities of the owner’s only private beach club, unlimited golf, and all of the services of the Four Seasons hotel (housekeeping, room service, etc.). This is in addition to living on or steps from the sandy beaches of the Sea of Cortez.

In the near future, the marina will be expanded to include private docking for personal yachts and water crafts. Several of the estates will include private boat slips. Lastly, an Amanvari hotel will be added to the property, along with a small selection of private luxury residences around it. All of this makes it the perfect time to get in early on this spectacular development.
