The Women’s Council of REALTORS® is one of the affiliate organizations of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). This nonprofit organization is a network of successful women REALTORS® that aims to promote and advance women to become business leaders in the real estate industry and the communities that they call home.


Their primary mission is to provide female REALTORS® with the best tools to advance their career, including education, leadership knowledge, and prospects, as well as the chance to share real estate knowledge in group seminars. This approach supports the growth of female REALTORS® towards increasing real estate knowledge, specializing in their desired niches, and becoming experts in their chosen real estate profession.

Why was the Council founded?

In 1938, as women were not allowed admission into any REALTOR® associations, a group of thirty-seven women formed a “women’s division” during the Annual Convention in Milwaukee. After 80 years of history, its legacy won the organization a leading position in the real estate industry and for committees of political action. The results are in the number of female REALTORS® across the nation and the impressive statistics of the organization.

But why join the Women’s Council of REALTORS®?

The benefits of becoming a member of the Women’s Council of REALTORS® led to the growth of female REALTORS®. Women grew aware of the benefits of the career itself, but an environment founded, directed, and created for women paved the way for a career supported by their peers.

  • Equitable incomes to those of men;
  • Flexible work hours that make it possible for REALTORS® also to raise a family;
  • A network of women working in the same field;
  • Courage to succeed from seeing women REALTORS® by your side becoming leaders in the industry;
  • Appreciation and recognition of achievements and successes.
