KRYS Tully said real estate was one of the professions where there was gender equality.

“Whether you are male or female, you get paid the same when you complete a transaction ,” she said.

“If you do the work, you will be rewarded.”

The only issue she has had over the years has been the ambiguity of her name.

“With a name like Krys (Chris), many people did not believe I was the licensee and person in charge of my business,” she said.

“They often wanted to speak to my husband.”

With a career spanning more than 30 years Mrs Tully has guided many people to success, including owning their own businesses.

“I find it very fulfilling that I was able to train excellent real estate people and help them achieve their goals,” she said.

“I have also served on two boards: First National and Reiwa.”

She has a lot of valuable advice to share with women looking to work in the industry.

“Be resilient and knowledgeable, not only in relation to real estate but to the broad aspects of what’s going on in your suburb and your state,” Mrs Tully said.

“You need to enjoy competition.

“There are many excellent agents and you will need to know your stuff.

“You also need to really commit, be self-motivated and don’t give up.

“Finally, the top criteria for success is communication, communication, communication.”
