Need for more womenagents
FEMALE estate agents are in a minority, according to the National Association of Estate Agents.
Only 25.5 per cent of its members are women and in London, that proportion drops to 18 per cent. Cardiff is the exception with 63 per cent.
Wendy Evans-scott, president of the association says: “These figures are disappointing, but unsurprising. Anyone who works in the property industry will testify that the gender balance has only recently started to change.
“Most likely women are the ultimate decision-makers when it comes to purchasing a home. There is a lot to be said for having a balanced agency in terms of male and female agents.”
