Home is where the heart is, that's how the saying goes. But the heart of most homes is pumped by the blood (hard work, anyways) of the women that spent their valuable time and money to make their houses into more than just a place to take shelter from the storm.
It's Women's History Month, and March 8, 2021 is International Women's Day. Women have progressed from the status of homemakers to building their own successful and competitive real estate agencies. With as much time as women spend inside the home (regardless of their marital/parental/employment status), they've grown familiar with the desire to balance fashion and function inside the home.
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), "There are few industries remaining today that have not seen a drastic change in the role that women play, and real estate and relocation are certainly not immune to these changes. Historically, women have been involved in real estate almost since its inception in 1794 and its establishment as a legitimate business in the 1840s. In real estate's early days, women filled office and clerical roles, but by the 1880s, women were already moving into the roles of agents and brokers, though at a relatively slow rate. Nationwide, women brokers dominate the residential real estate market, but have yet to make a major entrance into the more lucrative commercial market." In an industry where today, more single women than single men are becoming homeowners, having female real estate agents that understand and listen to what women want and need is a very important and impressive step for the history of Women's rights both at home and in the workplace.
