Sherman Bridge Announces Grand Prize Winner of "Invest in Women" Contest
October 29, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsOctober 29, 2016 - Irving, Texas: In response to overwhelming data that reflects a male-dominated housing market, Sherman Bridge Lending launched progressive campaign to empower women investors and celebrate them as professional, successful businesswomen. As part of this "Invest in Women" campaign, investors were urged to share the stories of remarkable lady-investors for their chance to win a well-deserved tropical cruise vacation.This "Taste of the Good Life Women Investor Contest" attracted coast-to-coast attention, and, after receiving an astounding number of nominations, Sherman Bridge is excited to announce they have chosen their grand prize winner.
Sonja Lawrence of SDL Ivest Group, LLC was announced as the contest's grand prize winner, and will receive a 4-day 5-night cruise to Cozumel, Mexico from Legacy Travel of Plano, Texas. Lawrence was nominated by another investor who endearingly considered Lawerence as a brilliant mentor, personal savior, and dear friend. Lawrence's kindness, generosity, and dedication to the success and well-being of fledgling investors are among the many exemplary qualities that led a panel of judges to award her the grand prize.
"Her knowledge and dedication are so valuable, and to us it is priceless," the nomination read. "What separates Sonja from the rest is her caring and generous personality. She opened her mind of knowledge to us without expectation of anything in return. She has become a true friend, mentor, and leader in real estate.
If it were not for Sonja supporting and mentoring us each step of the way, we would be in financial ruins," they wrote. "Sonja deserves to win because she does so much for others, it is about time someone does something special for her. I give her my thanks and my gratitude, an individual like Sonja comes once in a lifetime."
Sonja Lawrence has been investing over ten years, and, while her professional achievements are impressive as well, she tirelessly serves as a shining, selfless mentor for other investors whether over coffee or via Facebook. She shares her experience and pearls of wisdom to those who ask, personally comforts newcomers in distress, and goes out of her way to answer the questions of strangers. She nobly declines any payment in return for her tireless efforts, and it is this integrity and generosity that solidifies Sonja Lawrence as the contest winner.
"The effort Sonja makes to ensure and encourage the success of other investors is truly admirable," remarked one judge of the contest, who wished to remain anonymous. "Her story is the embodiment of what the 'Invest in Women' campaign is about. Investments require risk, and Sonja goes out of her way to foster a kind, caring environment for others in the business. She does not even have to know a person to build them up, encourage their potential and their success."
The "Taste of the Good Life Women Investor Contest," called for nominations of female investors who embody the spirit of the campaign: those who have shown resilience, strength, and readiness to take on the world of real estate investment. Other highlights of the campaign include educational resources for women such as an exclusive eBook, online calculators, guides, and advice publications. Through such remedies, Sherman Bridge hopes to inspire more women to unlock their potential to invest in their financial future.
