Broker/Owner of Eagle Realty Group & Associates
There is nothing more rewarding and inspiring than to see women of color set new standards and trends through entrepreneurship. African American women were among the fastest-growing groups launching and owning new businesses according to Forbes. Stephanie Bowens, CEO & Broker of Eagle Realty Group & Associates, is no exception with over 30 years of experience.
As the head of the largest Black woman-owned brokerage firm in her area, Stephanie remains humble, grateful, and thankful to the Lord for being chosen and entrusted with such a huge role. Her mission is to change the narrative and diversify the faces in real estate throughout the Fort Leonard Wood/Waynesville/St. Robert area. She and her team are always ready to do the work and reap the rewards that lie in the days ahead.
When asked to what she attributed the sustained longevity of Eagle Realty Group & Associates, Stephanie credited it to her faith and favor from God. She was determined to put in the work and remain faithful. Although she manages various agents, there is a culture of family where no agent is an island. The benefits are the friendships that have been established, the collaboration of agents, the joys of winning together, and the willingness of helping one another succeed.
Stephanie says that she is more than a CEO, but a coach at heart that pours into her team keeping them pumped and empowered to crush their goals. Her passion to help and develop other agents are innate. However, the ability to manage so many personalities synergistically was initially a struggle. Her strong personality seemed curt at times. She quickly learned to master the right delivery in communication and messaging without hurting or offending others in the process.
“The pressure is unimaginable. Sometimes I cannot sleep at night because my brain will not stop thinking of ways I can add more value to my team. I am truly invested in their careers, so I take the responsibility seriously.” Says Stephanie of the pressure of running a top brokerage firm in Mid Missouri. “This is not a task for the weak at heart.”
Of course, striking a delicate balance between work and family is vital, so self-care is a must and Sundays are exclusively reserved for family.
Eagle Realty Group & Associates is also considered a ministry (serving the needs of others) to many agents and customers. There has been an overabundance of customers and agents breaking through various hardships and setbacks, bouncing back to victory with the help of the brokerage. For example, some agents did not sell one house at their former brokerage, and after coming on board with Eagle Realty Group & Associates, they become top producers selling millions in real estate.
“Some agents come through the doors timid and withdrawn, then evolve into bold and assertive real estate warriors. It is beyond amazing to witness,” she says.
