September 22 is American Business Women’s Day. Created by Congress in 1983, the day began as a way to recognize the contribution women make to businesses in our local communities and throughout the United States.

Women comprise about half of the total U.S. labor force, and their numbers are expected to grow in the next three years, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Women also make up the majority of REALTORS in the U.S. Most have enjoyed fulfilling and successful careers in other fields prior to entering real estate, and they bring a wealth of experience to their buyers and sellers.

Duffey Realty is proud to have seven very accomplished women as part of the Duffey family of REALTORS. Not only are these women successful real estate agents, they also are active in local schools, churches, and organizations, and they are committed to the communities they call home.

Their expertise in residential and commercial real estate combined with their knowledge of the local area are invaluable resources to the buyers and sellers they work with each day. These women truly are part of Duffey Realty’s mission to be The Company with the Personal Touch.
