2021 Women in Real Estate


Announcing the 2021 Winners for the Connect CRE Women in Real Estate Awards.

From hundreds of submissions, we have highlighted women with achievements and inspirational stories who have reached respected positions of leadership and play key mentorship roles for others in commercial real estate.

After careful consideration, we chose 10 National winners, as well as leaders from each of the 10 areas covered by our regional newsletters: California, Texas, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Florida, Seattle, Phoenix and Washington, DC.  Thank you to all who submitted entries and congratulations to all the Women in Real Estate leaders being recognized this year.
