Woman’s Best Friend

As a young girl watching her father build and sell homes, Kadee French, 27, knew she wanted to be a real estate professional someday. A college degree in marketing and a couple of unsatisfying sales jobs later, she made the leap. "I love what I do, and hopefully I won’t have to do anything else for the rest of my life," she says.

Frequently by her side is Kiah, a cavachon poodle that makes appearances in French’s marketing materials, social media posts, and open houses. The pup draws attention that has resulted in several client relationships. French’s impressive customer service skills seal the deal, but Kiah is the conversation starter.

French is pleased to give back to the community in which she was born and raised. She is a member of the Junior League of Oklahoma City and volunteers at events for a senior residential facility. Kiah helps as well. She is a certified service dog that always brings smiles to the residents of the nursing homes they visit.
