PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Residential Properties Ltd.

The event will be held on Tuesday, September 30 from 11:30am to 1:30pm at Kirkbrae Country Club in Lincoln, Rhode Island.


“I am both honored and thrilled to be recognized by the YWCA for my work as a business professional,” says Lapides. “Like this wonderful organization, I have worked all my life to help young women advance in the workplace and become empowered as future leaders.”


After growing up in Barrington and graduating from Boston University, Lapides co-founded Residential Properties Ltd. in 1981 and quickly grew the business into Rhode Island’s largest independent real estate company, encompassing five offices, a relocation division, a commercial real estate division, a large support staff, and over 165 agents.


Over the years, Sally has been an advocate for numerous causes and has strived to improve the quality of life for others throughout the state. She served as the Vice Chair of the Board of Governors at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum and has been a trustee on the boards of Roger Williams University, Smith Hill Center, Trinity Repertory Company, and Providence Country Day School. She was also the former Chair of the Board at The Gordon School, the Newport International Film Festival, GAIA (Global Alliance to Immunize Against Aids) and The Rhode Island Foundation's Equity Action Campaign Committee which raised $1 million for the LGBT community fund.


Lapides will be among a distinguished list of 13 women to be recognized at this year’s event. Comprised from the fields of industry, culture, and public service, this list of accomplished women include health promoters, educators, community supporters, business advocates, social service leaders, a chief judge, and a multi-instrumentalist.
