Considering this, Ramushu said that with this feature film produced by Totem Zea has been showcased globally as they are demonstrating the location, skin Colour or the age that should never constrain the aspirations and ambitions, particularly as a young Black Woman.

Ramushu confessed her excitement about returning to New York, where she had previously received a Student Oscar nomination.

Furthermore, David Alex Wilson of Mad Moth Communications expressed that Real Estate Sisters is one of the six micro-budget projects backed by a joint film fund from Netflix and the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF).
