A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Welcome to the Women’s Council of REALTORS® Blue Ridge website! 

2016 is almost over and I wanted to thank each and every one to their service to make this an exceptional year and experience for me.

Our membership has grown this year with some exceptional REALTORS® and Strategic Partners.  We are excited to see the willingness of our members to join planned activities to insure our chapter’s continued success and that of our local association with their volunteerism.

We are fortunate to have numerous members serving on local (CAAR) and state (VAR) Board Associations, as well as Women’s Council of REALTORS® Virginia state President, President Elect, appointed Immediate Past President and committees.  We are honored to be able to work and learn alongside these leaders in our industry.

Our fundraisers this year were extraordinary, with the assistance from our sponsors, and were able to provide donations to various local charities from our raffles:  Shelter for Help and Emergencies from our Annual Picnic, Flourish Bouquet from the Battle of the Bras, and will be donating to Big C New Me at our Holiday Party in December, and we joined forces with the local Association and YPN Program to work with build projects with AHIP (Albemarle Housing Improvement Program) along with two days from our network.

You are welcome to attend one of our upcoming meetings and events.  Our Network Meetings are the third Friday of each month, unless we have special events planned.  Please check our website calendar for what is planned each month.

2017 will be an exciting year with our new Board of Directors and all the educational and social events being planned for our membership.

 Come see what Women’s Council of REALTORS® can do for you!
