Cape Coral-Fort Myers

Hello Everyone,

I am truly honored to be the 2022 President of the Women’s Council of Realtors® Cape Coral-Fort Myers Network.

Education, Referrals, Networking, and Leadership are the four pillars of the Women's Council, but I have found that this organization offers so much more than that. It is an organization that is made up of individuals that are caring, compassionate, supportive and loving, who pull together when times are tough and who celebrate together when things go right.

Like many people, I thought, before joining, why would I want to join a group of Realtors that I compete with every day. I soon learned that this was a misconception since this group is not my competition, but one that genuinely cares about each of its members and is always willing to lend a hand whenever needed.

I would like to thank those who have volunteered as Chairs of the different Project Teams. As Chair of the different 2022 Project teams, each one contributes immeasurably to the success of our organization.

Parlimentarian: Donna Stout

Strategic Planning: Pogo Gorwood

Bylaws & Standing Rules: Beate Wunderer

Marketing and Communication Chair:  Patrick Burns

Education Chair: Larry Brewster

Hospitality Chair:  Charlene Rodriguez

FunRaising Chair: Tammye Cates

Sponsorship Chair: Susan Schreiber-Martin

Awards & Scholarship Chair: Margie Birch

Travel Chair: Michele Schafer

Goodwill:  Debbie Doerge

Another huge component of the organization is our Strategic Partners. With their support we are able to offer products and services that are Real Estate industry related that can benefit our members. It is our Network’s goal to consistently provide relevant education and value-added leadership training to both Members and Partners. To accomplish these goals, it is vital to provide the tools to succeed, both professionally and personally. With the help of our Strategic Partners we are able to support, achieve and exceed these goals.

One goal for 2022 is to increase our member numbers so that we become a Mega Network once again. The goal would become a reality if each of us encouraged one or two prospective members to join. We can do it if you help us.

In 2022, we are aiming to bring you exciting educational and fun social events for you to learn and enjoy with your friends. If you are a current member watch for our monthly newsletters letting you know what is happening. If you are thinking about joining us, please feel free to reach out with any questions that you may have.

Thank you so much,

Yvonne Torsok, PA

Local networks, which are volunteer-driven, offer industry events, leadership development opportunities, and a true place where local business leaders are willing to share information and techniques, to brainstorm, to develop camaraderie. The network provides recognition, support, encouragement, and mentors that are needed to grow your business. The local network experience is an amazing mix of professional relationships, dynamic friendships and deep-rooted strength, integrity and caring.
 
Top Referral Network

According to the last member survey, average commission income from Council member-to-member referrals is $15,000 annually, with over half of all members referring business to another member annually. Referral opportunities are generated through participation in the networks, but also electronically. Women’s Council's partnership with Radius provides you visibility among peers and the public, with links to listings, online referrals, a concierge service for out of area leads, lead generation, and local networking groups**. Click here to learn more about Radius and its benefits designed to provide you business and referrals. This online benefit, coupled with 1,500 live programs annually, is the reason why the single largest benefit of membership according to the last survey is "membership means a high-level business leader who will follow through on client needs." Leaders are not only created here – business leaders are created here!
