Join us for our Spring installment of COMO Night Out! Grab your girls and settle in for an evening of inspiration. This spring we are focusing on giving you the tools and inspiration you need to leave feeling empowered.

This event will take place on Thursday, April 18th from 5PM-9PM at Cooper’s Ridge! Heavy appetizers & one glass of wine are included in the cost of your ticket (because what’s a girls night without snacks and wine?!)

Please note that due to the nature of this event, we will NOT be able to accept walk-ins.

What else can you expect from the evening? We’re so glad you asked!

Meet Our Keynote Speaker

We are thrilled to bring in, Elizabeth Mendenhall! Three words that best describe Elizabeth are Energy, Empowerment, and Experience.

Elizabeth is currently the President of National Association of Realtors.

As a REALTOR and CEO with RE/MAX Boone Realty since 1996, I am active in various organizations in Columbia, Missouri and also in the REALTOR community.  I think it is important to be involved and knowledgeable about the real estate community and ensure our market remains as a premier destination for property owners.”
