New Orleans Metropolitan Chapter
Chartered in 1995
WHO WE ARE: The Women's Council of REALTORSÂ® is a nationwide community of real estate professionals who include many of the best and brightest in the business. We are productive people with reliable expertise helping others reach their next level of success. With more than 18,000 members, WCR is the twelfth largest womenâ€™s organization among 700 in the U.S.
Based on commission income, WCR members are more than twice as productive as the average REALTORÂ® and are better established in the business. That, in turn, means they are better connected to the communities they serve. WCR is an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORSÂ® and is headquartered in Chicago, IL.
WHAT WE DO: At WCR we are never standing still. Thatâ€™s why in 2003 we launched an entirely new REALTORÂ® designation, the Performance Management Network. Itâ€™s professional training, and a thriving referral network, so powerful it will keep the competition up at night. PMN courses dig deep into the hot topics that are shaping our business. The newest course, â€śHarnessing the Power: Skills Based Performance Management,â€ť was developed by WCR in conjunction with The Pacific Institute. The course, which is also approved as an elective for REBACâ€™s ABR designation, teaches how to harness the power of performance management to manage time effectively, build credibility and develop a professional and personal vision.
HOW WE DO IT: WCR has an established network of 300 state and local chapters, with volunteer managers trained to position their groups as a business resource center in their REALTORÂ® communities. With regular networking and educational programming designed to keep our members at the top of their game, its small wonder that WCR members collectively generate over $100 million in commissions annually. We learn more, earn more, grow more.
AT A GLANCE:
- The average WCR member has a gross income of $117,900 and has 17.5 years' experience in real estate.
- 70% of WCR members have 10 or more years experience in real estate.
- Among more than 700 U.S. women's organizations, WCR is the 12th largest.
- 93% of survery respondents reported that WCR membership gives them a "sense of professional pride".
