Ousmane Keita is a husband, a Dad, and a serial entrepreneur with a strong commitment to serving his clients and community.
He moved to New York City over two decades ago from Dakar, Senegal with the ambition of furthering his education and making a life for himself and his family.
Ousmane has managed several businesses in the food and beverage industry and in retail clothing. All of his ventures have not only been well managed, they each leveraged, at the time, a trend in neighborhood development. Whether in Lower Manhattan, the Upper Eastside or in South of Harlem, he has a keen eye for up-and-coming neighborhoods.
Ousmane lives in the Upper Eastside with his wife and two daughters. At home, English, German and French are regularly spoken. He likes to travel with his family and oftentimes visits family members in Europe and Africa or vacation in the Caribbean.
In recent times, he has harnessed a great interest in social impact efforts by co-founding an environmental film festival.
His leadership and business acumen taught him a great deal of good work ethic and trust building, important qualities for success in real estate. He professes an uncontested believe in giving the best of himself and thrives to forge a strong bond when engaged with clients.
Ousmane likes running, photography and soccer. He speak fluent French and is casual in German.
He earned a degree in Business Entrepreneurship at Baruch College in 2000 and has the following certificates:
•Renewable Energy & Green Building Entrepreneurship
