Women in Real Estate

For some reason or another, real estate has always been one of those professions that women have had little trouble breaking into. In fact the National Association of Realtors puts the number of all female sales agents at 65%.

What is really impressive though is the number of women at the top of the real estate industry. The 2008 edition of the Swanepoel Trends Report is referring to management, and not even at middle management levels but executive levels. Women are taking over the very top spots of the real estate world, and this is just the beginning.

Hopefully this sets a great example for other industries and what women can achieve. The time has come for women to display how truly confident and financially savvy they really are.

I have heard it time and again that women are very successful in Real Estate. At one of our local RMS meetings in Scottsdale, AZ we had a panel of the 3 top agents in the area; all women!
