The Grande Dames of Real Estate

Real estate is not for the faint of heart. This business is a roller coaster, with changing tastes, economics and legalities to keep up with. So it’s impressive that Cassandra Harbin, Ann Cleare, Virginia Glass, Rae Roeder and Jan Soto (left to right, above) have each managed extremely successful real estate careers in Tallahassee lasting 30, 40, even 50 years.

They have seen the market grow and retreat over the course of their many years in the business, and each presents an interesting perspective on the field’s ever-changing nature. They have lived through the immense growth and change our city has undergone over the course of the past few decades, bravely entering the real estate business even when it was run predominantly by men. Here, then, are five smart, experienced women who have been in Tallahassee throughout their careers and are still going strong, thanks to their tenacity and refusal to give up despite the challenges they faced.
