The panel exemplified how challenges are a part of women’s lives. Four strong women exposed their stories led by David Serle, Broker REMAX/Services.

Leanna Fruin, Broker of Engle and Volkers, outlines how when personally affected by a close friend’s struggle she went from not knowing to becoming an advocate in a very short time. We need to find ways to help people that shut down. Her dedication and passion are part of her Multi property portfolio expertise.
