You find that recent reports show that 63% of individuals that make up the real estate industry are women. Despite the value that women bring to the field, ladies in the real estate tend to be undervalued. One thing that I am sure of is that over the years women have brought some unique changes in the industry. If you are looking forward to knowing more about four female real estate agents who are changing the game in 2019, read more here now.
Let us start with Corrine Simpson. Even though Corrine Simpson is not alive in 2019, she is remembered for paving the way for modern-day female realtors to be just as big part of the professional world. You find that she was the first woman to ever join the National Association of Realtors in 1908. Which paved the way for 2/3 of the current members to join the NAR and do what they love. But during that time they were not doing it for passion but to support their families and household.
The second woman is Dani Rosenthal. She is from California and works as a real estate agent in Lake Arrowhead. One of her recent accomplishments was getting in the Forbes 400 list of wealthiest Americans. One thing that she was doing earlier on is working in sales and marketing for apparel companies. As time passes she realized that her passion was historic renovation and architecture. As we speak she has the opportunity to nurture this passion. Rosenthal has found real estate to be a welcoming environment and now she works in an industry that respects and empowers women by encouraging professional growth.
Becky Ashby is the third woman we are going to discuss. Ashby is one of the founders of Ashby and Graff Advantage and she understands the need for diversity. Actually, she had a partner John Graff a gay man who opened the doors for their real estate firm. This is one of the fastest-growing real estate firms in the U.S and they operate in Southern California. And, they continue fighting for equal opportunities for housing in marginalized groups. Like what they did earlier this year was to create a video promoting equality to commemorate the anniversary of Stonewall.
Lastly, we have Kim Howard. She founded Chicago real estate agency with the help of her husband. You find that they like working together and helping one another as well as helping others. You find that they believed that they had skills to help others find affordable housing in the market. You find that she has featured Chicago Agent and Featured Agent Magazines and this is because of the things that she has accomplished.
