Women We Admire is pleased to announce The Top 100 Women Leaders in Real Estate of 2021. These leaders are recognized for going above and beyond their pursuit of real estate excellence, paving the way for future female leaders in the industry. For many centuries men had historically dominated the field until the past century where women now represent the majority and are advancing into leadership positions across the nation. The National Association of Realtors’ first female member, Corrine Simpson, first joined in 1910 and smashed barriers for equality along the way. She helped change the ideas of the time making it socially acceptable for women to enter the profession, proving that women were just as capable as men.
With time comes incredible success. Awardee Chelby Sanders, Executive Vice President with CBRE’s Advisory and Transaction Services group in Dallas co-leads a successful tenant representation team and has negotiated over $4 billion over the course of her career. Saundra Kandler started off her career only 21 years ago in bookkeeping and has since risen into the roles of Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Keller Williams Connected. Meanwhile, Sandy Borman continues the success of Better Homes and Gardens, serving as the Chief Executive Officer of the Boreman Group.
A benchmark for excellence in the industry, the award celebrates and acknowledges these outstanding women who are influencing others in the real estate profession. These women leaders exemplify the qualities needed for success within the field. They are tenacious, savvy, persistent and determined and their reach extends beyond the communities they serve. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of The Top 100 Women Leaders in Real Estate of 2021.
