IREM Members Named Top Influencers at Real Estate Forum’s Women of Influence Conference

August 02, 2019 | IREM


For 36 years, Real Estate Forum has been recognizing the remarkable achievements of women in real estate with the Women of Influence awards, one of real estate’s highest honors. This year, several IREM members were recognized as Women of Influence finalists, and four were named winners in these categories:

  • Property/Facility Manager of the Year
  • Humanitarian of the Year
  • CRE Consultant/Advisor of the Year

Winners were announced at the Globe St ELITE Women of Influence conference held in Broomfield, Colorado, earlier this month. Some categories received such a high caliber of entries that the judging panel chose to honor more than one finalist with gold, silver and bronze awards.

Congratulations to our 2019 winners.
