Intracoastal Realty agents Stephanie Lanier, David Stuart, and Kelly Stuart were recognized during the Cape Fear chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) 2020 Awards Banquet at the Wilmington Convention Center on Thursday, February 27th. The awards, which focus on the rapidly growing commercial real estate sector, recognize excellence and leadership in commercial real estate in the Cape Fear Region.

Career Advancement for Women
The Career Advancement for Women Award was presented to Stephanie Lanier, the lead agent for the Lanier Property Group at Intracoastal Realty. The award recognizes a company or individual who consistently exemplifies Cape Fear CREW’s commitment to elevating the status of women by supporting the advancement of the careers of women, and who has shown leadership in encouraging and promoting women within the leadership team.

Stephanie founded and leads The Inspiration Lab, a community of women who want to grow personally and professionally through teaching, tools and socializing events multiple times a month. With over 300 women as members, The Inspiration Lab is the largest women’s professional development group in Wilmington. A nationally celebrated speaker on the topics of real estate, self-care, and marketing, Stephanie hosts an annual women’s conference with more than 325 attendees focused on elevating the status of women as speakers and panelists. Many of the speakers from last year’s conference have gone on to paid speaking engagements after getting their start at The Inspiration Lab.
