Nerdy Civil Rights Lawyer to Top 10 Producer


Farrah Wilder was born in Detroit Michigan.  She grew up in the suburbs of Southfield where she attended elementary school, high school and undergrad work at the University of Michigan.  As an only child she was outgoing and made friends easily. She was an avid reader and really enjoyed history. At an early age she learned about black history and about those who had less than she ever did.  This made her sensitive to others and inspired her to a career that was purposeful and made a difference in society. She went to law school and earned a degree and practiced Civil Rights law for five years.

In November of 2007 she was traveling to a friends wedding and happen to be seated by a couple of realtors.  The conversation of course was about the glamorous life of a realtor the freedom and flexibility to travel and spend time however you pleased.  After that trip, Farrah decided that was the life for her.  The idea of being your own boss, getting to travel, and the flexibility and freedom sounded amazing.  She got her real estate license quit her job at the law firm and 11 years later she’s never looked back!
