Publishing is a pressure-cooker world, especially when you helm a fleet of home design magazines¬ – including Montreal Home – and are readying the launch of a sister publication for the South Florida region.

THE BROTHERHOOD OF FUN

The diminutive powerhouse runs her own boutique-style real estate brokerage; she’s also familiar to HGTV viewers as the host of Property Virgins and Buy Herself, in which she helps novices negotiate the tricky business of acquiring a house.
