Women are making a profound impact on the commercial real estate industry in Arizona, bringing fresh perspectives, innovative ideas and a drive for success. AZRE magazine’s Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate for 2023 are challenging traditional norms and transforming the landscape of this male-dominated field.

One significant change brought about by women is the emphasis on diversity and inclusion. Female professionals are actively advocating for equal opportunities and creating supportive networks to empower other women in the industry. Their presence is fostering a more inclusive environment, where different voices and perspectives are valued.

Moreover, women are driving innovation and pushing boundaries in commercial real estate. They are leveraging technology, embracing sustainable practices, and exploring new markets and investment opportunities. Through their creativity and adaptability, women are reshaping the urban landscape of Arizona, introducing dynamic and sustainable developments that meet the evolving needs of communities.

Furthermore, women are assuming leadership positions and making key decisions in major real estate firms, investment companies and development projects. Their strong business acumen, strategic thinking, and collaborative approach are not only driving growth but also inspiring and mentoring future generations of women in the industry.

The Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate for 2023 were chosen from a field of more than 1,900 women under consideration. They were selected by an editorial board that consists of 12 former Most Influential Women. They will be honored at a recognition dinner Thursday, August 17, 2023, at Chateau Luxe in Phoenix. Tables and sponsorship packages are available.
