Coastal Virginia Network
Women's Council of REALTORS

Marilyn Rivera

Women's Council is about so much more than the monthly events.

As many women as we see working in the real estate industry, that number is NOT matched by the number of women we find in leadership positions. Why not? Women's Council's mission is to provide training, networking, leadership opportunities, and confidence building.....ALL the things that will help place more women into leadership positions. We are talking about leadership positions in both the industry AND the community.

When you join a Women's Council Local Network, you also join Women's Council State and National. You are welcome to participate in any Local, State, or National Women's Council event. Also, not only can you volunteer to engage in local leadership, but you will be offered leadership opportunities at the State & National level, as well.

And, there are financial #BENEFITS - the REFERRAL Network; Office Depot Discount card; special prices on hotels, flights, sightseeing trips, tickets to shows, and theme parks - just to name a few!!

Commitment to Excellence (C2EX)

Commitment to Excellence (C2EX) from the National Association of REALTORS® empowers REALTORS® to evaluate, enhance and showcase their highest levels of professionalism. It’s not a course, class or designation—it’s an Endorsement that REALTORS® can promote when serving clients and other REALTORS®.

We are very proud to announce that there are now over 50,000 members participating in the program! This innovative engagement tool encourages participation in all levels of the REALTOR® organization, and at no additional cost.

Get started on your journey today by logging in to and taking any one of our 11 self-assessments to measure your proficiency in 10 aspects of professionalism (11 for brokers), ranging from customer service to use of technology. The platform generates a customized learning path and recommends experiences and resources to enhance your individual skillset.

Keep in mind, the journey doesn’t end there. The Commitment to Excellence program evolves as industry standards and best practices evolve. As new content, reference and resource materials are added to the platform, REALTORS® who have earned their C2EX Endorsement receive a notification inviting them back to engage and keep their skills and knowledge up to date.

Be an advocate for the future of our industry. Be committed to excellence. Go to to get started with this award-winning program!
