“Sometimes #breakingthebias also means forging equality, even within your own gender. In one of my corporate jobs, I was part of a female-centric ‘boys club’ environment, which proved debilitating for my career. It hindered my growth as an employee who worked hard and devoted long hours to prove myself to my female boss and the wider executive team.
It took great courage and strength for me to #breakthebias, resign from my position and become an entrepreneur seven years ago. Since then, I’ve aimed to empower other women and share my voice to uplift female entrepreneurs in my industry.
Real estate is a very competitive business and I believe that we, as women, should not only value and celebrate our success and accomplishments but also genuinely support one another.“

Founder and Sales Representative, North Group
A passion for real estate, sports, giving back, and most of all, being an Auntie, are just a few of the things that define Amy Youngren.
With 16 years of industry experience, Amy’s roles have ranged from corporate executive to sought-after speaker to Founder of North Group, one of Canada’s fastest-growing real estate teams, consistently ranking in the Top 10 of Keller Williams Realty Canada and awarded 2018’s ‘Most Innovative Real Estate Team’ by Inman.
Amy has been named one of the ‘100 Most Influential in Real Estate’ and Inman nominated her ‘Most Innovative Agent’, a credit to her stylistic approach to marketing and video strategies that are reaching tens of thousands worldwide and have become the talk of the industry.
Her workaholic tendencies remain somewhat balanced with early morning routines, regular workouts and caffeine-infused iced Refreshers from Starbucks.
Amy’s daily mantra: “Do the thing you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
