Home buying is an important way for women to build wealth, so we designed this special edition of SkimmU to empower our audience to gain knowledge on the current trends and what to expect, so they can make informed decisions for their future as they navigate the housing market.”

Joined by real estate professionals Amanda Pendleton, Zillow Home Trends Expert; Mika Kleinschmidt, ​​Realtor, Interior Designer and Television Personality; and Ciara Foster, Mortgage Loan Officer and Content Creator, they will cover topics including current housing market trends, home buying best practices, and negotiating in a crowded market.

SkimmU, launched in March 2021, is theSkimm’s event series with a spin on higher education. Throughout the pandemic, the challenges like navigating a she-cession, job loss, caregiving, remote school, burnout, and more have disproportionately left women behind.
