No More Glass Ceiling In Real Estate
Category - Real Estate Information Sources - Real Estate Articles

When compared to many other professions and industries, real estate has long been one where women can more easily achieve success and equality with men.  The National Association of Realtors profile even put the number of all sales agents at 65% female. But that’s not what I am referring to now – women surpassed middle management levels and are now well represented in executive levels.

Women have not only reached the top of the real estate leadership pyramid, they are proving themselves to be great leaders.  In the last couple of years women have moved into the #1 or #2 positions at many of the country’s largest real estate companies. For example:

  • Mo Anderson – President, Keller Williams Real Estate
  • Tami Bonnell – President EXIT USA
  • Lorna Borenstein – President, Move, Inc.
  • Brenda Casserly – President, ERA Real Estate
  • Shari Chase – President , Chase International
  • Sherry Chris – CEO, Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate
  • Beverly Faull – General Manager, Fidelity National Real Estate Solutions
  • Helen Hanna Casey – President, Howard Hanna Real Estate
  • Dottie Herman – CEO, Prudential Douglas Elliman
  • Laurie Janick – General Counsel, NAR
  • Susan Johnson – President , Real Estate Settlement Providers Council
  • Laurie Keenan – President, Prudential Real Estate Affiliates
  • Margaret Kelly – COO, REMAX International
  • Pamela Leibman – CEO,  The Corcoran Group
  • Gail Liniger – Vice Chairman, REMAX International
  • Pam O’Connor – CEO, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World
  • Joyce Paron  –  President, EXIT Canada
  • Kaira Rouda – COO, Real Living
  • Brenda Shipplett – COO, Long & Foster Companies
  • Sarah Shoemaker – COO, Real Living
  • Pat Vredevoogd Combs – NAR President 2007


So no more glass ceiling! In many ways the real estate industry leads the way with women leaders, as well as leaders that are minorities, from the silent generation and even X’ers….but that’s another article.
