Ideal Properties Group has launched Women of Ideal, a new group whose mission is “to support and educate women in the business of real estate by way of mentorship.ˮ
Aleksandra Scepanovic, managing director of Ideal Properties Group, said the idea grew form a conversation she had with a broker “who had become accustomed to being disrespected by male superiors at her current firm.”
“I was both outraged and astounded that this type of sexism still exists, especially knowing how pivotal a role female brokers play in the residential real estate business,ˮ said Scepanovic.
“I realized how much we support and care for each other at Ideal. We have consciously worked to create a collaborative environment, and in talking to others, it started transpiring that we may have been taking our circumstances for granted.
“As a business, we were and are proud to be female-dominated and so the idea of formalizing a group was born and grew into Women of Ideal.”
Agent broker Wendy Jones has been named president of the group, which will meet bi-monthly basis.
