Platinum Real Estate Team

Vicky Noufal of Leesburg (center, white jacket) and Karen Cooper of Lovettsville (left, light jacket) lead a team of 29 real estate agents who have already served more than 400 families in 2019.

When veteran realtors Vicky Noufal and Karen Cooper first decided to open Platinum Group Real Estate together, fellow agents warned them against it. Partnerships in real estate tend to go wrong unless the partners are family, they said. Besides, Noufal and Cooper couldn’t be more different. Noufal was born in Lebanon, while Cooper grew up in Lovettsville. Noufal is creative and a dreamer. Cooper is a pragmatic planner.

Cooper and Noufal ignored the advice of their peers. Now, they are the owners of a vibrant, 29-agent team of women who in 2019 have already served 414 families.

How much did they pay you for this advertisement?

Sure looks like an obvious, planned, and organized scheme of gender discrimination to me.
