About the Hosts:
Single women are currently the second-largest segment of homebuyers, yet many pass on great purchase opportunities because they are intimidated by the renovation process or do not know where to begin. As two women who independently took on multiple rehab projects and who have worked with dozens of trades specialists, the workshop creators have been asked many times how they did it.
Erin Helland of HardHat Diplomat and Lee Pera of Kotierra will share the organizational tools and experience they gained to help others, especially women, become their own project managers and feel confident in making informed and cost-effective decisions when buying and renovating a home.
