Living the American Dream – Paving Way to Success as an African American with a Disability


Jamell A. Edwards defies the odds and proves that anything is possible. A true visionary in the realm of real estate investment, Edwards has overcome the obstacles of being both a below-the-knee amputee and an African American to become a thriving entrepreneur and real estate mogul.

Discovering the Real Estate Vision

Born with a passion for real estate that was nurtured through his upbringing in a family real estate business, Edwards realized that working in corporate America was different from the path he wanted to take to achieve financial stability. Soon after, he found his profession in the industry through his discovery of wholesaling and the successful completion of numerous transactions.

An Ambitious Vision for the Future

Edwards’ ambition knows no bounds, as he aims to achieve his own financial success and inspire and educate others on how to create wealth for generations to come. Breaking down barriers and defying stereotypes, Edwards stands as a shining example that with hard work and determination, anyone can achieve their dreams, regardless of their background or challenges. He sets his sight on the target of a company worth $100 million and wants to serve as a beacon of hope for others to follow in his footsteps and reach their own version of success.

Recognitions and Further Expertise

In 2017, Edwards was named the Wholesaler of the Year by the Connecticut Real Estate Association. His drive and passion for real estate investing made him a force to be considered. After a couple of years, he earned his Lee Arnold Private Money Broker Certification, further honing his expertise in the industry. In the future, aspiring to write a book to share his story, he wants to offer advice to others facing adversity.


Jamell A. Edwards is truly a source of inspiration for all of us as someone who has conquered all the challenges that life has thrown at him and become a successful entrepreneur. He is breaking barriers and setting an example for others to follow. Whether you are a business owner, real estate investor, or simply someone looking for inspiration, Jamell’s story is a must-read.
