What makes a Pro certified? Find out.

Purse Strings engages top-tier financial professionals who are willing, ready and able to serve a female market. Our Purse Strings Approved Professionals (PSAPs for short!) are financial professionals who have:

  • Clearly articulated their desire to serve a female market
  • Earned designations that set them apart to help women (such as CDFAs or CDS)
  • Created careers that uniquely serve women in situations where help wasn’t easily found - like Widowhood, Financial Abuse, Post-divorce financials to name a few.

Many of our professionals come with their own stories and experiences which led them to help women and make an impact in the financial industry. Our professionals are handpicked or referred to us by current PSAPs. All Professionals go through an interview process and all licenses and designations are validated. Purse Strings Approved Professionals are provided ongoing training, education and expert resources that continually help them sharpen their skills to serve a female market.

Connie Barhorst
Real Estate Broker, Baird & Warner

I am truly focused on my clients and their needs. I am attentive, patient and I listen to what my client desires. I am here to help them achieve their real estate goals.
It would be my honor and privilege to assist you with your housing needs. Please contact me and let’s discuss how I can help you!

I have very high standards of service and I love to give that experience to my clients. I have a strong background in sales and marketing, particularly social media marketing. I love to showcase properties with the assistance of video, live posts and other social media outlets. Most homes are sold via the internet today and I ensure the pictures and images we present are perfect!

My love and passion for helping people pairs well with my interests in home design, decor, and furnishing. Helping a client get their home ready to present to the market or helping a buyer find their “perfect fit” is something that I truly enjoy.

    How does your current professional add up?

    We want women to surround themselves with a talented and thoughtful team of experts who will help them plan for their future. Yet, we are keenly aware that so many providers in these industries lack the skill set to work with women and their unique needs.

    There are things to look for when finding the right professional for your needs: flexibility, empathy, creativity, strategy, and work style. Take the questionnaire and find out how your current pro stacks up—and if you could use the advice of a Purse Strings Approved™ Professional who’s qualified to meet your expectations.
