It’s not about the money

Mary Fenwick 0.0

After her husband’s unexpected death, Mary Fenwick found that money was tied up with too much emotion. That was when her agent stepped up to help her and her family. Fenwick will share her story to illustrate why the role of an agent is not just about the transaction of selling a product, it’s about building a relationship over time.
