• About Us

  • CREW Austin was founded in 2002 with a simple philosophy: We work together; we play together. We promote each other; we support each other. In 2001 more than 40 women in commercial real estate attended a luncheon to discuss how to support women active in the commercial real estate community. From that meeting, 25 women, who eventually became CREW Austin's Founding Members, met in January 2002 to start CREW Austin. The creation of our chapter is a perfect illustration of the purpose of CREW. The women present at that January meeting were well-known and highly regarded within their respective disciplines, but amazingly, were not all known to each other, which drove home the point of why a women's commercial real estate association was needed.

    Today, our members represent a diverse and dynamic group from all areas of the commercial real estate industry. We work with each other in business deals, encourage each other through social events, and educate present and future industry leaders through community outreach.
