Why are men more likely to be broker-owners than women? And why do more women opt to form their own independently owned brokerages instead of pursuing a more corporate career path? These are questions that researchers at the California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.) have been exploring (and discovering) through the C.A.R. Women’s Initiative, which intends to “create a community where mentors and leaders can communicate, collaborate, advocate for, and support one another,” according to the initiative’s website.
- Of the respondents to the C.A.R member survey, 16 percent of women were broker-owners compared with 27 percent of men.
- C.A.R.'s Women's Initiative is using events, research, mentoring and other resources to help close that gap.
