2016 Real Estate Women’s Forum California


Since 2010, GreenPearl / RealInsight has hosted over fifteen high-level commercial and investment real estate conferences in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Combining this track record with our experience building and growing the Real Estate Women’s Forum New York to 600+ attendees over the past five years, we brought this dynamic event to the Golden State in October of 2016!

Clare De Briere of the Ratkovich Company, Lorna Auerbach of Auerbach Realty Holdings, Lynn Owen of TruAmerica Multifamily, and over 30 other leading women from northern and southern California shared their experiences on the unique opportunities and challenges facing leading power players in commercial and investment real estate. The event was held at the historic women’s club—the Ebell of Los Angeles—where over 200 real estate professionals came together to network, share ideas and engage in insightful discussions.

The Real Estate Women’s Forums are focused on women who are leading the charge in an array of real estate markets as diverse as the players themselves. From multifamily to retail, from office to industrial, this conference provided opportunities to learn from the women taking on larger roles, innovating, and shattering stereotypes in every corner of the industry.
