The 2nd Annual Conference did not disappoint. All of the speakers were dynamic and the messages they conveyed will definitely help to increase our businesses. Women have always been a force, and now more and more people will see it. Jay Inouye from Freddie Mac said something that I will never forget. “Sell to everyone, but buy from each other”.

The Inaugural NAWRB Conference held in Long Beach, California was nothing less than enlightening. I have been in the real estate business for more than 30 years now, I have attended numerous conferences in those years and have never felt the magnitude that I felt at our NAWRB Inaugural Conference. Desiree Patno, our leader was able to enlist powerful women and men who hold positions as managers or directors in the FDIC, FreddieMac, FannieMae, FDIC, and Congress Women to speak to our group. They truly enlightened and inspired us with their open dialogue in the promotion of Women Owned Businesses. We were able to get the CEO of EXIT Realty International, Tami Bonn ell, the President of New American Funding , Patty Arvielo to sit on panels and discuss our challenges and our stenches as women owned business owners and their panel discussions were extremely informative. As we move forward into 2015 I am confident that we as a group, meaning the members of NAWRB will be held in esteem by the individuals that attended our conference and when we knock on their doors so to speak for their assistance in building our relationships with them, we will be heard.

When women come together and share their support and their knowledge there is nothing stopping us!

At last year’s conference, I met selfless women and walked away with confidence and a new vision for my business. This is a great platform to leverage social and communal assets. All women have something to bring to the table. NAWRB’s conference has given me a voice and a platform to converge my passion for career, lifestyle, and community as one brand.
