"I am one who always believed in the power of social media. These days, that’s where many stars are found and I thought 'why not' if I could find my buyer there. We should always be careful how we use our social media because you can literally change your life from how you conduct yourself on these apps."

Speaking more on the power of social media, Mpho believes that focusing on his craft is important. The realtor has over 9 000 Twitter followers and more than 11 000 Instagram followers and believes it is imperative to have a 'deep understanding' of said platforms.

He said:

"I have learned to have a deep understanding of social media and that what happens online sometimes doesn’t translate to life. The attention is nice but I know I must not get lost in the following, likes and trends. I must truly focus on my craft and never think I’ve arrived or have become famous because that’s when one loses the plot."

Speaking about the future and where he sees himself when he hits his mid-20s, Mpho said:

"I see myself owning my own property and development company as well as selling luxury property in New York City."
