Women in residential property meet to network in a ‘non-salesy’ way

Supported by a £250 grant from Agents Giving, a recent Women in Residential Property lunch was attended by over 50.

The event raised over £400 for Ella’s, a charity which supports women who have been victims of trafficking or slavery.

It brings the total raised for Ella’s to over £3,000 since Women in Residential Property was founded in 2017.

The organisation was launched by Emma Vigus, managing director of conveyancing organisation mio, to encourage collaboration between those involved in residential property transactions and improve networking opportunities for women who may find traditional industry events intimidating and overtly ‘salesy’.

The lunches are designed to appeal to a wide audience with attendees coming from a variety of backgrounds including agency, surveying, conveyancing and mortgage broking and lending.

WIRP is due to host five further lunches this year, with the next at the Hotel du Vin in Birmingham on March 26.

Guest speaker is Kate Faulkner, chair of the influential Home Buyers and Sellers Group which has been advising the Government on reservation agreements.
