Her talents were recognized and she was recruited to run a top Keller Williams office as team leader. Within three years, she helped grow the number of agents from 300 to more than 500, with sales volume of $1.2 billion per year. 

Shannon took her vision to new heights by spreading her talents around the world. After opening 16 franchises as "Directrice des Operations" with Keller Williams France in 18 months, Shannon returned to her passion for coaching and training with her own company Rêve Coaching. 

Today, serving the largest real estate agencies in the United States with more than $1.5 billion in sales volume and coaching multiple number one franchises overseas, Shannon is helping leaders change their lives worldwide.
