Gail Bowden is breaking the mold at brokerage firm Sperry Van Ness International Corp.
For 2015, Bowden, who works with SVN's Commercial Advisory Group of Sarasota and Bradenton, was the firm's top agent in Florida and the first woman to achieve that designation.
She also ranked No. 3 in the U.S., with more than $50 million in sales volume last year.
“I'm pretty motivated, I work very hard, I travel throughout Florida and I'm focused on a specialty instead of trying to do everything the way some agents do,” says Bowden, a SVN senior investment adviser who was named an “Advisor of the Year” in 2014.
Bowden, who has been a commercial agent for more than three decades and with SVN since 2009, specializes in medical and industrial property sales.
The Sarasota/Bradenton SVN affiliate, part of a network of more than 200 locations globally that generated more than $10 billion in sales and leases last year, was ranked sixth nationwide in 2015, it was announced at the company's recent annual conference in San Diego.
