Women dominate in real estate!
According to the National Association of Realtors®, "Women accounted for 61 percent of part-time and full-time real estate practitioners in 2003, up from 36 percent in 1978. What's more, the number of female practitioners surged from 21 percent to 52 percent over the same 25-year period."
In addition, "Most women practitioners say their listening and nurturing skills, as well as their multi-tasking abilities, help them excel in real estate. The excitement of helping to create homeowners is cited by most women as the main reason they love their real estate careers. Reasonable income, flexible hours that allow them to balance work and family, and the ability to work from home or in the field also make real estate a good career choice, according to many women practitioners."
