Women's Council is Global: Next Stop is Spain This September

For the past four years, Women’s Council has been expanding its global footprint with organizations that seek to advance women as business leaders in the industry and in the communities we serve. In September 2019, the flagship international event will take place again in Seville, Spain from September 26th to 29th, 2019. 

Staff Highlight: Saying Farewell to Martha Rusk

25 years. 50 national conferences. 75 Executive Committee meetings. 20 Leadership Academies. Dozens of bylaws changes. 3 major technology transformations. 3 Executive Vice Presidents. A living history book of everything Women's Council related. A "go-to" subject matter expert to many. Immeasurable institutional knowledge. That only scratches the surface that touches on nearly 25 years of service at the Women's Council of REALTORS® for Martha Rusk, who will leave the Women's Council in June.

Tech Talk: Stop Settling For Less

When you use a smartphone, you’re using a wicked piece of technology that can do everything from call Thailand to turn off your oven. More importantly for real estate professionals, you can make calls, reply to emails, access your task list, browse the MLS, add meetings to your calendar, and FaceTime clients all on the go without being tied down to a desk.

Presale Updates and Repairs

Sponsored Content When you’re showing a home, you want buyers to focus on what’s great, not what needs fixing or is in poor condition. Sellers can do a lot to make sure their home shows well, and it will get better offers than those that are in obvious need of TLC.

2020 Leadership Institute Deadline is July 1

While many organizations have Leadership Institutes and Academies, Women’s Council leadership’s 80-year track record and proven system in creating leaders is considered the gold standard in the industry. The Leadership Institute develops leaders who have demonstrated leadership potential through their local and state network, with the goal of creating a network of industry experts across the country who are actively involved in improving our Council. Applications for 2020 are due July 1st and applicants are chosen in August.
