Gender gap closing in WA real estate industry: REIWA

The number of women working in the real estate industry is edging closer to that of their male colleagues, according to the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA). 

A breakdown of REIWA’s membership showed that almost 50 percent of ordinary members, defined as agency principals or licensees, are women.

Additionally, there are 3,685 female sales representatives across the state compared with 4,293 male. 

In property management, women outnumber men by more than five times.  

REIWA CEO Neville Pozzi said the numbers speak for themselves, particularly in the field of property management.  

“Our membership shows that the gap between males and females working in the industry is closing, almost to the point where the gap doesn’t exist,” he said.  

“When you look at the contribution women make to the industry, particularly in property management, the local real estate industry in WA is ahead of the game when it comes to gender equality."
