Black Woman Who Felt Unwelcomed In Her Neighbourhood Creates A Community Of Her Own

She created the world she wanted for herself.

It is not unusual for a black person to feel unwelcomed in a neighborhood. They often face hostile glances and unfriendly frowns from their neighbors and never quite find themselves at home in the area. Pam Brown Courtney, however, was not letting it slide and as reported by Shoppe Black, she developed a community of her own where everyone was welcome.

According to Shoppe Black, she is an educator and a real estate investor/developer who learned the ropes of real estate management through working with a friend's mother. But it was during the time that she went out to look for a house of her own in Little Rock community that she felt really unwelcome. The house was perfect for her but the neighbors were unfriendly.

So, she went home and thought, "You know what, I can build my own community like that and I’ll be nice to the people that live there." She then went on to create a 51 home subdivision called 'Covenant Cove Community' from scratch to create a welcoming environment for everyone. 

Currently, she is also teaching young entrepreneurs and students the basics of real estate management and guiding them through the nitty-gritty of the real estate industry but more than that, she is instilling, in them, the confidence of making a world they would to live in.
