Two of them have won the eponymous title of Top Woman in Real Estate 2019 – Marzena Tkaczuk in Commercial Sales category and Anita Pietrykowska in Marketing and PR. The Top Woman in Real Estate competition is an annual initiative which gives women in real estate an opportunity to inspire and support one another.

The awards are presented in recognition of remarkable business achievements, which put their businesses in a stronger market position, for outstanding management practice, and above-average performance in their respective fields, as well as for being open to new solutions and brave in implementing them. The statuettes were presented during the Awards Gala which took place on 24 May 2019 at the Marriott Warsaw Hotel.
