In 1927 real estate was a profession dominated by men. One woman who dared to succeed was REALTOR® Grace Perego from San Francisco.
Perego began her career in 1913 building flats and apartments. During World War I she traded a building for a ranch, expanding into rural real estate.
Her career would span six decades and over fifty years.
