We are honored to have her back to explain the probate process, how investors may and should interact with
the probate office and families going 
thru probate.  What is acceptable and appropriate, what is not, who
can sell 
or buy properties in probate, and when.  She will also share info that every family needs to know
about probate for your own personal situation for the 
future.  How to prepare, how to avoid probate, etc.  

She is quite funny on stage with her presentation.  You will enjoy her talk, even on a solemn topic.
