Residential Land’s Head of Investment, Emma Whitby-Smith discusses her experience in the property industry and celebrates the 10th anniversary of Freehold.
Whitby-Smith told Property Week: “My experience as a gay woman in the property industry has been mixed. I was in the closet until I met my now wife of 23 years. Since 2000, I have worked at Residential Land, whose founder and CEO, Bruce Ritchie, a straight ally, has co-hosted Freehold networking events with me. The Residential Land ethos is that we all have something to contribute and differences are embraced and championed.”
Emma looks forward to organising future events with women members within real estate and references that: “The industry has come a long way in the past 10 years, but let’s keep up the progress over the next 10.”
