HousingWire's Influential Women of Housing 2012 special section focuses on 30 women leaders helping to shape the housing sector.
Some are household names. Others may fly a bit more under the radar but are very influential in their day-to-day work to effect positive change in the housing economy.
Their experience spans a wide spectrum, from housing policy on the steps of Capitol Hill to running large nonprofits. They include lenders, mortgage servicers, housing analysts and technology gurus.
Below, in no particular order, are the 30 women who made this year's list. All nominations were submitted by HousingWire readers. To see our stories on each finalist, please see our online September flip book. Found here.
