Pinkston, a real estate agent & REALTOR® in Chicago, IL, shares how she shows Millennials - not just teaches them - how to make sound investments in real estate. She’s driven by her motivation to never let any of her clients deal with the negative experience she did when buying her first home and, as a result, is a powerful fiduciary for her clients and students. Listen in to hear why Shaun is #theoldestmillennialrealtor

 – and learn what she has done to help her clients stay ahead of the curve through the market’s ups and downs.
