About Us

With more than 135 members, CREW Austin is the leading organization for senior-level executive women in the Central Texas real estate community. As part of CREW Network, the industry’s premier networking coalition, CREW Austin is dedicated to advancing the success of women in commercial real estate. CREW Network’s membership of nearly 10,000 professionals in 74 major global markets represents all aspects of commercial real estate—providing our members with direct access to real estate professionals across all geographies and disciplines.

Since 2002, CREW Austin has connected commercial real estate professionals in the Central Texas area, working together to:
  • Create a dynamic and supportive environment that promotes advancement through knowledge sharing and networking
  • Push the boundaries in every facet of commercial real estate through provocative dialogue among peers drawn from every discipline in the industry
  • Provide educational programs which directly affect your day-to-day work and promote real change
  • Encourage our members to be a force for activism and involvement in our communities.

CREW Austin members are empowered by sharing their knowledge and experience with others in our community, while also learning from the insight and know-how of others. That’s why we focus our efforts on networking programs such as the Real Estate Summit & Golf Adventure among numerous other networking opportunities. In growing and strengthening our network, we aim to create more opportunities for women in commercial real estate.

Our mission

To influence the success of the commercial real estate industry by advancing the achievements of women.

Our history

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.
