I’m Aws, and I’m BOLD BOLD is a sales training program for real estate agents that Keller Williams holds in different cities throughout North America. This organization has had a huge impact on my personal life and professional career.

Then, I started doing open houses with Karen. Through those open houses and engaging with customers, I learned a lot about the agent’s side of this business. Over the years, Karen and I have done a lot of business together. “The event opened my eyes to the importance of having systemized follow-ups with past clients and real estate agents I work with.” During my second BOLD event, the Bold Law that stuck with me was “Life By Design.” The top mortgage specialist at RBC in Ottawa at the time was retiring, and one of his assistants needed a job. The assistant had worked with him for seven years, so she had a lot of experience. At the time, I needed help with my least favorite part of my job: paperwork.
