ABS data shows that women account for 55 per cent of employees working in the rental, hiring and real estate services, but Ms Storer said the number of women in principal and leadership positions remained below par.However, this is changing, she said.And male agents were seeking training to adopt a more ‘feminine’ approach with sellers that require more empathy.“Women have tended to be more in property management and support roles but there is a push to change that,” she said.“We are seeing a greater push for that change from the top now, not just the grassroots.”To coincide with International Womens Day today, Ms Storer has announced and released early bird tickets to the third series of her Women in Real Estate Business Breakfast, which will be held in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and now Adelaide.
