Taking on a new challenge after 40 years in real estate

28 January 2021 Robyn Tongol

This episode of Secrets of the Top 100 Agents sees Grace Ormsby joined by REB Women in Real Estate’s recently crowned Industry Thought Leader, Leanne Pilkington.

Reflecting on her responsibilities as president of the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales (REINSW), and managing director of Laing+Simmons, Leanne talks candidly about her achievements and efforts over 2020, culminating in the decision to “buy in” and take control of the boutique network she helms.

In this episode, you’ll also hear about:

  • Why she hasn’t always considered herself as a leader
  • How she steered real estate professionals, and the wider industry, through the COVID-19 pandemic
  • The circumstances that culminated in Laing+Simmons members taking ownership of the brand
