5 Black Women in Real Estate From the Past to Present

5 Black Women in Real Estate From the Past to Present

The power of ownership is often talked about within our community.  Therefore, some of our black southern belles; friends, moms, nieces, and cousins, took the initiative to better assist our community to become owners instead of renters. The way these ladies were to do so was with a background and calling for real estate.  Real estate is about obtaining a property that can consist of land and building, however, most importantly real estate heightens the benefit of owning these items and demonstrates great ways for buyers to sell these items to grow their own portfolio. With this in mind we are honoring 5 Black Women in Real Estate From the Past to Present. . 

5 Black Women in Real Estate

Bridget “Biddy” Mason 

Mississippi was home to Biddy Mason because she was born enslaved. However, the west coast; Salt Lake City, Utah and California would later become home while still being enslaved. Like many other African Americans who were enslaved at the time, Biddy Mason wanted freedom and was willing to petition during court. Even though slavery was thought to be absolute in the North, Mason won her emancipation before many other enslaved African Americans in the South and became free. With her freedom in California, Grandma Mason worked as a midwife and nurse to save money to purchase land. Once Bridget “Biddy” Mason became a landowner she did like most real estate agents would do; provide ownership as an option at the table of many plates. Ms. Biddy always seem to use her monetary gains from nursing and purchasing land to provide food and shelter to those in need and be an active patroness in the west coast community.

Black Women in Real Estate

Black women in real estate is nothing new nowadays, however, it continues to grow to new heights and more history is being made in the field from the ladies above and many others in the real estate business. Without the knowledge of those in real estate or family generations before, the real estate process could take all of us for a loop. However, there are now more women, specifically black women, entering this field and we should recognize them during this Women’s History Month.
