Women Business Owners: A New Perspective

Spotlight:  Women Business Owners

The U.S. Census Bureau reported in December 2014 there were 7.8 million women-owned businesses, which accounted for 28.7% of all businesses nationwide. Surprisingly in the male dominated property management industry, nearly 30% of all Real Property Management franchises are fully or partially owned by women.

“Our female franchise owners bring diverse skillsets and unique perspectives to drive innovation and provide the best service in the industry,” says Lukas Krause, Chief Operating Officer of Property Management Business Solutions, LLC.
