Cara Faske, a True Pioneer!

We were thrilled to learn that our own Cara Faske, President of Pace, was chosen among a select few women to be named “Pioneering Women in Real Estate” this year!

This distinction is given to honor individual women for their outstanding accomplishments in the real estate industry, and presented by Sokol Media, publishers of magazines that include NY Residential, DC Rising, South Florida Residential Green Matters. The awards were presented earlier this month in New York City, where Cara was honored with this year’s other distinguished women.

Lori Sokol, Founder & Publisher of Sokol Media, had this to say about the awards and honorees:

“…while the real estate industry is still one that is male dominated… strides are being made, and successes are being parlayed, into an increasing number of programs to promote women into higher positions. Thank you to all the individuals and firms that support and exemplify progress for women in our industry.”

A Little About Cara Faske…

In case you don’t know… Cara’s career spans over 25 years and has been dedicated to marketing real estate in New York City and nationally. She has directed marketing campaigns for many of the largest real estate companies in the U.S. She founded and served as President of Cara Martin, a successful full-service advertising and branding agency. In an industry not known for conceptual advertising and innovative design, Cara has built a reputation for exceptional creativity, with real estate marketing ideas and campaigns that always break the mold. In 2011, she merged her firm with Pace and became part of the WPP family, and then in 2014, Cara was named President of Pace. When she’s not heading a major NYC ad agency and changing the face of the real estate marketing world, Cara has been involved with numerous philanthropic organizations, including Uniting Against Lung Cancer and Creative Arts Works.
