Traci Stella: top 50 women in Real Estate

September 8th 2017

Traci Stella has been named one of Australia’s leading women in real estate in a national list of top-performing female agents.

Traci from Fletchers Manningham has secured a position in the Real Estate Business (REB) Top 50 Women in Real Estate 2017 ranking.

The list ranks female real estate sales agents across Australia according to a range of metrics, including the number of sales, the total sales volume and the average sales price.

Now in its second year, the REB Top 50 Women in Real Estate is a ranking initiated by leading industry resource Real Estate Business and is produced by award-winning media company Momentum Media.

“The REB Top 50 Women in Real Estate 2017 is the industry benchmark for success for women in real estate sales and an accolade all female agents aspire to,” said Tim Neary, editor of REB.

“In this year’s ranking, the calibre of entrants was exceptional, with the total sales volume across the Top 50 in excess of $5 billion worth of properties.”

The data collected for the Top 50 Women in Real Estate was verified by a senior member of the agency and its accountant.
