At Bonanni Realtors, we believe that the real estate field is a great career for a woman.
It seems that the majority of woman come into real estate by circumstance, not by plan. They are drawn by the challenging work, flexibility, relative independence, and ability to define their own success in the brokerage industry. And while the field is dominated by men, women have succeeded, in part, because of the support of their male colleagues, not in spite of them.
Of course, being a woman can have its own advantages. You stand out in a crowd of brokers and, hopefully, to your clients. Women often bring complementary skills to the table. Their communication style is usually less aggressive and more service-oriented then that of men. This is a major plus in a field that has become more team-oriented and service-driven. Women are often part of the client’s decision-making team, and they may look for more female representation in their service partners.
