Show Notes

People who have power and voice have the responsibility to make the world a better place for those who are struggling. 

Welcome back to Dreamcatchers! In today’s episode, I welcome the founder of CRE Recruiting and CRE at work, Allison S. Weiss. From a military family, Allison will share how her environment growing up has shaped her and how her philanthropic values were formed. She is about the celebration and the appreciation of every person. She is well aware of the problems in the industry of real estate and she is not afraid to speak up and encourage others to do the same. Allison is the change from within that the industry needs.

With all that, let’s jump right in and learn the importance of diversification and representation!
