Community, Collaboration, & Faith Foundations With Real Estate Expert Abbie Shepherd

In this Inspirational People interview on the Share Life podcast, I'm speaking with Abbie Shepherd. Abbie is our long-time friend and real estate agent. She is the founder of The Abbie Shepherd Real Estate Group serving the Atlanta area community and someone I admire for her consistent communication and persistent follow-up. She's also got a large family like us, with 5 of her own kids.

In this conversation, Abbie shares how she stumbled into real estate from an engineering background, the lessons she's learned along the way, and how she's survived multiple economic crises and thrived on the other sides of them.
