Local Arkansan Claire Brown knows what it takes to be a power woman. Born and raised in Benton, Brown has been a go-getter from an early age. I started selling real estate and commuted to Henderson State University where I graduated when I was As technology advanced, my business expanded and I moved to Keller Williams where I became a broker.
I started leveraging my business so others could work for me and I could make time in my life for other things while still maintaining the same level of service for my clients. I could not stop writing after my heartbreak and had a conversation with one of my coaches who suggested I write a book.

Brown also wants to encourage other women to set their own standards. You have to show up first with all the standards you desire.
