ABOUT 33 per cent of licensed real estate agents and salespersons are female, says Real Estate Agents Licensing Board (REALB) acting CEO Virisila Tuimanu.

Speaking at the Bayshore Fiji Real Estate awards night in Nadi last Saturday, Ms Tuimanu said of the 286 licensed real estate agents and salespersons, 95 were female.

She also encouraged more women to step up and join the real estate industry.

“Women have remarkable progress into the male-dominated fields like medicine, business or law,” she said.

“Commentaries have noted that many highly successful women have found the world of real estate and commercial development is ideally suited to a woman’s touch.”

She also urged all staff of Bayshore to continue working hard and helping grow the real estate sector in the country.

Ms Tuimanu said over the past 12 months, REALB had granted 74 real estate agents licences and 212 salespersons approval.

A number of real estate agents with Bayshore were awarded for their hard work over the year.

Company director Arif Khan thanked his staff for their support and hard work and encouraged them to work by the company’s code of ethics.

He also reiterated that his company was an equal opportunity employer.
