SVN® Senior Advisor Named a 2016 Woman of Influence

“One of my ongoing life goals has been to inspire and empower other women; to instill in them that there are no barriers, the glass ceiling has been shattered and the path has been created to achieve even greater success.” says Bowden

SVN International Corp. (SVN), a full-service commercial real estate franchisor of the SVN® brand, announced today that Gail Bowden, Senior Investment Advisor with SVN | Commercial Advisory Group in Sarasota, FL, has been recognized as one of Real Estate Forum’s 2016 Women of Influence. The 23rd annual list recognizes top performing female professionals in commercial real estate whose track record of achievements have helped shape and influence the traditionally male-dominated industry.

Real Estate Forum, a leading publication in the commercial real estate industry, chose this year’s impressive winners from a pool of more than 300 high-caliber nominees. Bowden earned her spot on the coveted list due to her exceptional transactional volume and contributions to the industry. With over 30 years in CRE, she has cultivated a strong reputation and list of accomplishments that have contributed to a career sales total of over $200 million. Bowden recently ranked as the 3rd top-performing SVN Advisor on a national level and ranks among the top two percent of SVN commercial real estate Advisors in the United States.

“It’s a great honor to have been selected as a 2016 Women of Influence,” says SVN Senior Investment Advisor Gail Bowden. “One of my ongoing life goals has been to inspire and empower other women; to instill in them that there are no barriers, the glass ceiling has been shattered and the path has been created to achieve even greater success. In my opinion, true success is measured by our ability to pay it forward, give back through mentoring and philanthropy.”

Beyond her success on the CRE playing field, Bowden donates much of her time to industry and community organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, SPARCC (Safe Place & Rape Crisis Center) and helping SVN launch theWomen’s CRE Forum (WCF) earlier this year. WCF is a dedicated platform providing education and mentorship to new and established female commercial real estate professionals with the goal of increasing and strengthening much needed female leadership in the real estate industry.

“Here at SVN we experience Gail’s hard work and commitment everyday and can’t think of anyone else more deserving of this achievement,” said SVN President and CEO Kevin Maggiacomo. “Serving as an example and mentor to many in the industry, Gail has been instrumental in launching the Women’s CRE Forum. Part of SVN’s Shared Value Network initiative, the forum serves as a tool to help further promote gender balance in commercial real estate.”

Bowden and her fellow winners are featured in Real Estate Forum’s August issue as well as on GlobeSt.com. They will also be honored in an awards ceremony on October 5th at the joint RealShare New York and RealShare Investment & Finance cocktail reception.

Meet The Florida CRE Pro Who’s Modeling The Way

MARCH 14, 2016 | BY JENNIFER LECLAIRE

ORLANDO—Gail Bowden has earned SVN Florida’s top advisor award for a strong performance in 2015. What’s more, the 30-year commercial real estate professional based in Sarasota is one of SVN’s top three advisors in the world.

Bowden specializes in healthcare real estate investment properties and industrial properties. She conducts most of her business in Florida, but does span the country.

“Within the industry, women make up less than 20% of all commercial real estate brokers,”Jerry Anderson, executive managing director of SVN Florida, tells GlobeSt.com. “Yet at SVN, women brokers have always earned high recognition as national top 10 performers. We believe there can and should be more within the profession, which is why we recruit and promote talented women like Gail.”

Bowden ranks among the top 2% of SVN commercial real estate advisors in the United States. In 2014 and 2015, she earned Partners Circle status, a prestigious designation for SVN advisors.

“It’s a very exciting time for women in commercial real estate,” Bowden, a SVN Florida advisor, tells GlobeSt.com. “More and more women are joining the field and having great success in a very male-dominated arena. In my opinion, this is due to women mentoring and supporting each other, along with the industry in general realizing that women have a great deal to offer.”

Notably, 10% of SVN Florida’s top 25 advisors also placed in the top 100 of SVN’s international list of its highest performers. With 200 locations in more than 500 markets, SVN has officesthroughout the United States, Mexico City, Mexico, Toronto, Canada and Moscow, Russia.

“I’m fortunate enough to work with SVN, which provides women a platform to achieve great success,” Bowden says. “The women of SVN have recently formed a ‘Ladies of SVN’ group that gives associates a place to inspire, motivate, mentor and encourage one another. Over the next five years, it’s my belief that the industry will continue to see more and more women excelling and rising to the top in commercial real estate.”

Bowden has several honors in recent years, including ranking among the top five producers in Florida for 2013 and 2014. She also has been recognized multiple times as the Sarasota office’s Top Commercial Real Estate Advisor of the Year and earned several Top Sale Transaction awards. An active member of her community, Bowden is a volunteer and auxiliary member of Safe Place & Rape Crisis Center and a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.
