Doing Deals, Pushing For Progress: Meet 23 Women Leading D.C.’s CRE Industry
Women in D.C.’s real estate industry are brokering deals for millions of square feet, disposing of billion-dollar portfolios, overhauling sustainability strategies and helping clients navigate the changing workplace.
For Bisnow’s second annual DMV Women Leading Real Estate awards, a four-person nominations committee selected 30 honorees across brokerages, financial institutions, development companies, law firms and more.
In a historically male-dominated industry, many of this year’s honorees say they have seen a shifting tide with their own eyes over the course of their careers. But they also voiced a resounding call that the work continue — that the industry push to recruit more women, make more room for them at the table and encourage them to grow and lead.
This year’s Bisnow Women Leading Real Estate honorees said it is clear that improving representation doesn’t just bolster equity — it bolsters the bottom line.
“This commitment to diversity is not a mere trend; it's a strategic move that enhances performance, fosters a more inclusive and equitable work environment, and positions CRE and related industries for sustained success in the years to come,” JBG Smith Executive Vice President Michelle Tierce said.
This year’s honorees are broken into four categories: Leader of the Year, Deal-Maker of the Year, Innovator of the Year and Rising Star. They will be honored at a reception on Dec. 14 at the Washington Marriott Georgetown.
