Women's Council of REALTORS


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, 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!!

Have you been inspired yet?
