Renae Dickey believes that in order to pave the way for a gender-equal era in the real estate space, the industry needs to put more women in rooms where leadership decisions are made.

The sales agent at BresicWhitney sits down with Grace Ormsby and Sadhana Smiles to share how her firsthand experience as a property buyer convinced her to make a detour from ballet teaching towards a career path in the real estate sector.

Renae discusses the challenges she faced when she entered the industry, explains why agents should view property transactions as an “intimate” interaction rather than a business deal, and why it’s time for the industry to break away from its traditional views when it comes to recruitment. 

In this episode, you will hear: 

  • What is the difference between an “okay agent” and a “great agent” 
  • Why there is a need for increased female representation in the industry
  • The importance of growing at your own pace
