agents/brokers and real investors.
There is funding being offered for women business owners and are encouraging
more women to own businesses. There are programs that you can apply as long
as you show proof of ownership of business and there has to be at least 51%
ownership in the business in order to qualify. There are groups, associations and
communities that cater to women in business. For example, The Women
Chamber of Commerce has a support section for women business owners and
helps them file and be recognized by the government in order to apply for the
grant. In order to qualify them must register as a women owned business and
have certification with the state also have revenue of $ 1 million.
Another place I recommend for women who are looking to be part of group and

Association of NYC. They have a women focused group called WISE, which is
founded by local REIA chapter organizer Dr. Teresa R. Martin, ESQ. She is an
attorney and an investor that also founder of REIA NYC. She is encourages women
to be part of the group and gain insight on real estate investing and running a
