Connie Milstein was among the women who joined to discuss the current real estate industry and their personal experiences in the business at last week’s panel, “The Women Leading NY’s Real Estate Families.” Covered in The New York Observer’s Real Estate section, she was the center of attention when someone asked her about the challenges that come along with being part of a prominent real estate family.
“Sometimes, you gotta go along to get along,” she said.
It was a diplomatic response for a woman like Connie Milstein, one who’s associated with her fearlessness and go-getter attitude. The other woman who were part of the panel, including Lisa Silverstein, Helena Durst, Faith Hope Consolo and Andrea Olshan, followed suit. The women discussed what it’s like to be a leading lady in real estate today, and on the more light-hearted side—shopping malls and plus-sized fashion. The Observer also noted that the highlight of the night was when each panelist paid tribute to her mother, even bringing Consolo to tears.
The panel was hosted by New York Commercial Real Estate Women’s Network, an organization dedicated to advancing the success of women in commercial real estate.
