What is the significance of women holding a leadership role in residential real estate?
Shama Barot: I am extremely grateful to have been provided the opportunities to excel as a woman in an industry in which most executive-level and leadership positions are held by men…When women are leaders, they create a roadmap for other women behind them. I think it’s important to uplift and celebrate other women, especially in a male-dominated industry.
