“I have the freedom and the confidence to stand in my own right…and own it”
Anna Thomas is a woman with such energy and enthusiasm for life that it’s hard not to feel energised when you listen to her speak. She was born in a hurry and that’s how she lives life. But Anna also acknowledges the importance of self-care and taking time for yourself…no matter what.
From a young woman making her first property investment to today, Chief Operating Officer of Stockdale and Leggo, a major real estate network throughout Australia, Anna has achieved significant success.
She was recognised as a Telstra Business Women’s Awards Finalist in the Corporate and Private Awards in 2016, she was a finalist in the Real Estate Business Awards ‘Industry Thought Leader of the Year’ Awards and a Bronze Stevie winner in the Woman of the Year category in the 2017 International Business Awards.
Even with her success, Anna knows the struggles and challenges women face in the work environment, particularly in the real estate industry, where women are the minority.
That’s why she created Empowered Women in Real Estate, a community empowering women to believe in themselves and step forward into leadership roles.
Within this community, they’re addressing the big issues such as pay inequality, the inadequacies and lack of confidence women feel in the work environment and the struggle to find balance and support from employers. Anna is passionate about helping women feel empowered and the group has grown to the point where industries outside real estate want to know more.
Watch this space, with Anna in the driver’s seat, Empowered Women will be showing up all over the world.
