Free real estate workshop for women

The first of a series of free workshops that teach women how to get into buying real estate takes place Friday, May 2 in Abbotsford.

The Women on the Move Workshop is a short and informal session that teaches the basics of investing in income properties.

Realtor Sonia Wood said the sessions are “informal, a little goofy, and very easygoing.”

“We want women to be able to feel OK about asking questions, even if they think their questions are kind of dumb,” she said.

Wood conducts the workshops with another realtor, Carolyn Carson.

The session on May 2 begins at 6 p.m. at Chances Playtime Abbotsford, 30835 Peardonville Rd. To register, call Sonia Wood at 778-808-8049 (email or Carolyn Carson at 778-878-4687 (email
