WIRE — Where Successful Businesswomen Meet, Share and Connect

This annual event brings together real estate pros from all over the state to focus on leadership, inspiration, recharging and empowerment.

The annual Women in Real Estate conference (WIRE), presented by Florida Realtors®, features a high-profile roster of speakers — women of influence in the real estate profession. 

WIRE's goal is to educate, empower and promote women in the real estate profession. Attendees examine workforce behaviors and identify the ones that lead to success — and those that don't.

This year, we invite you to unleash "The Power of Now" with an inspiring lineup of women speakers who will empower you to reach new heights, in business and beyond. Register early because this popular event usually sells out!
