Author Visit with Brenda Fontaine, Jan. 26

Brenda Fontaine, owner of Fontaine Family – The Real Estate Leader, will debut her business memoir, The Limitless Real Estate Leader, at the Auburn Public Library on Thursday, January 26, 2017, from 6 until 7:30 p.m. In the event of a snowstorm, her visit will be re-scheduled to Monday, January 30, from 6 until 7:30 p.m.

Well-known in the Lewiston-Auburn area, Brenda started her real estate team with her husband and daughter twenty years ago; within 5 years, it had become a seven-member family team. The company (which includes both its Auburn and Scarborough locations) concluded 551 closings with nearly $75 million in sales in 2016, their most successful year to date.

Her family and her personal history have inspired Brenda to write this memoir to motivate others to have the courage to build a family business, and to push through fears rather than be limited by them. In telling her story and providing bits of wisdom, Brenda fulfills one of her bucket list items and her desire to give back to her community.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be presented in the Community Room on the Library’s lower level at 49 Spring Street, and door prize drawings will be offered.  Copies of the book will be available for purchase, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Auburn Public Library.
