Overall, it looks fairly even in regard to gender. If anything, they might have picked a few more men than women.
Definitely not the case in my area. 5 of the 6 brokers that were picked with experience were previous HUD brokers. One was added who sold about 50-60 homes last year so he has good experience. Of those 6, 3 are men and 3 are women. I don't have a problem with them. What I do have a problem with are the new agents who were selected. All of them had two things in common--lack of experience and women. I don't see how you can select an agent who has never sold a home to be a HUD LLB. Much less 4, a 5th who hasn't sold anything since 2007, and a 6th who sold 5 homes last year. It does not make sense. It seems that there are apparently other criteria that were involved in the selection of agents.
Yes, in my area(Texas) it was even as well. After a little researching all of the winner had one thing in common, it was not gender but EXPERIENCE. I was upset yesterday as well but do not be BITTER. Just move on and GOD will bless you with another opportunity.
You must be in a different part of Texas. It was not even at all here. If you re-read my post, you'll see that half of the agents selected do not have any experience at all in selling properties of any kind, much less REO. By the way, I never said I was bitter. I'm frustrated--there is a difference.
