I am excited about my membership and I hope to be an active member to increase our numbers. She is such a hard working lady, and I have true admiration for her. So much of what she said was on point with my experiences, and it was great to hear from another professional. I need that kind of dialogue on a regular basis.

Leading Ladies was a very professional event, interactive, and it was filled with new ideas about thinking out of the box to utilize my WOB certification to expand business. I took away tons of good information. There are so many REO groups seeking new members that it's hard to figure out where I should invest my resources. After attending the conference I was happy that I had joined NAWRB.

DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ASSOCIATIONS

NAWRB is the only housing economy trade association exclusively representing professional women and women-owned businesses. Other groups focus on specific minorities, individual women or allow general memberships. NAWRB maintains a focus for its membership base for all women in the real estate industry. Diverse employee demographics of a given business are a positive indicator a business’s commitment to women and minorities and is in itself a noble goal that NAWRB supports. However, to qualify for set-asides or be certified, a company must be women-owned and operated. Therefore, NAWRB’s certified businesses must meet this criteria.

NAWRB has strong relationships with REO outsourcers, servicers, financial institutions and government entities. NAWRB regularly uses federal and state initiatives to monitor current usage and advocates for increased utilization of women-owned businesses across several platforms. Many institutions respond with requests for access to our network of member businesses, providing a consistent flow of referrals to our members.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

NAWRB Women-Owned Business Certification requires applicants to provide the following documentation to be eligible:

  • The business must be 51 percent or more women-owned, managed and operated
  • The women business owner(s) must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident alien
  • Technical expertise in the Housing Economy

A number of other certifications exist for women-owned businesses. Women business owners should match their choice of certification to those companies or entities which they seek to do business with. Three broad categories exist:

Third-party, industry-specific certification – NAWRB is the only such certifier of women-owned businesses in the housing economy.

Third-party certification – The two largest third-party certifiers are the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) and the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). These entities provide widely-recognized, third-party certifications for women-owned businesses, however, they do not specialize in the housing economy.

Self-certification – To date, the federal government has allowed women-owned businesses to self-certify. This option has limited mechanisms to ensure that applicants are indeed women-owned businesses. The Women-Owned Small Business Program (WOSB) and the Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB) administered by the Small Business Association (SBA) still qualify under the “self-certification” designation. There are approved third-party certifiers for this program available on SBA.gov. This program is designed for women business owners pursing federal contracts; the SBA should be contacted directly for more information. The SBA also offers 8(a) Certification, which designates a business as small, using federal size guidelines. This certification is for any small business, not solely women-owned businesses.

State and Local Certifications – Some states and other localities offer women-owned business certification. These certifications are most beneficial to businesses seeking contracts with applicable state and local government entities. For example, the state of California does not offer women-owned business set-asides in contracting opportunities, while the city of Los Angeles does. Business owners should first explore contracting opportunities and recognized set-asides at the state and local levels.

Minority-, Veteran-, and Veteran Disabled- Certifications – Other designations exist for a wider group of historically disadvantaged business owners. Those certifications require much of the same criteria; for example, like women-owned certification, the disadvantaged business owner must have a controlling stake (51% or more ownership). The National Minority Supplier Diversity Council (NMSDC) provides a widely-recognized Minority-Owned Business certification, whereas veterans have a similar program to certify their businesses as well.

Before deciding on a particular certification, each business owner should ask herself two questions:

Which categories of certification are most representative of my business? Women-Owned? Small? Minority? Veteran? This will narrow down the options available by identifying the certification most applicable to your business. Many business owners have multiple certifications, such as an 8(a), women-owned business located in a HUBzone.

Who am I seeking to do business with? The federal government? The state? Industry-specific targets? Identifying those businesses or entitities which will be on the receiving end, or “user end” of your certification is a key component when deciding on which certification to pursue.

Disclaimer:

There are many avenues for women-owned business certification and NAWRB provides an industry-specific, third-party certification that, like all certifications, may or may not be accepted at private and public institutions. Due to the changing WOB certifications, our use of the word “certification” in any press releases or on this web-site should not be construed in any way as approved certification through any specific organization or entity. Due to the underlying similarity of many certification programs, NAWRB recognizes women-owned business certifications issued by other national, women-specific, third party certifiers. Those are NWBOC and WBENC specifically and a NAWRB member businesses must still satisfy the association’s industry-specific requirements to be designated as a certified NAWRB Women-Owned Business.

A series of documents and information are required for the certification application.

Section One:

  • General Business information
  • Owner Information
  • Board Member and Key Management Information

Section Two:

  • Company Area Coverage
  • Personnel Information
  • Personnel Diversity
  • Financial Requirements

Section Three:

  • Professional References
  • Organizational Structure
  • Organization Registrations

Timeline

Once a complete application has been submitted, the processing time takes six to eight weeks for the application to be processed.  Within this time period, additional documentation or clarification may be requested of your organization.  The six- to eight-week time frame applies to completed applications only.

When submitting your NAWRB Women-Owned Business or Minority Women-Owned Business Certification application, adhere to the following tips and guidelines to ensure a timely response to your application:

  • Mail your certification application in a single three-ring binder.
  • Separate the sections and documents per Section One, Section Two, and Section Three guidelines listed on your application.
  • Label old or unclear documents with post-its or tabs.
  • Make sure to register your company with SAM (https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM/) before submitting your certification application.
  • Print out two copies of the certification application: One to turn in, and one to use as a check list during the application process.
  • If a document is missing or inapplicable to your business, include an explanation and reason for non-inclusion of the document on a company letterhead, with the signature of the business owner.
  • Listen to NAWRB’s Call4All Certifying as an NAWRB Women-Owned Business before beginning the certification process.
  • Remember that anyone can call NAWRB at (949) 559-9800 with questions about the certification process.
  • Visit Certification FAQ’s for more helpful tips.

Important Notice: Businesses seeking certification can receive certification aid during the certification process and prior to submitting a certification packet. If interested in certification, companies should be confident that their business can pass the litmus test of “women-owned on paper, women-operated in practice, and experienced in real estate.” If you have questions about your eligibility for membership and/or certification through NAWRB, email info@NAWRB.com or call us at (949) 559-9800.

BUSINESS STRUCTURE

A women-owned business whose work is in the real estate industry can certify as a NAWRB Certified Women-Owned Business or Minority Women-Owned Business and submit different documentation depending on the structure of the business. The term “women-owned” is defined by 51% or more women ownership.

CONFIDENTIALITY

All documents and information are securely stored in an off-site location, and only certification review committee members will have access to said documents.

A live phone interview is required as part of the certification process and must be completed prior to final review and approval.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

REVIEW OF CERTIFICATION APPLICATION

Once a complete certification application is received, the applicant’s package will begin the review process. The review is completed by the Certification Committee that verifies that all of the documents are present are in order and current.

The certification review is comprised of three phases for quality and integrity assurance:

  1. Phase One entails a thorough review to see that all of the required documents have been submitted, and that the application is in the correct order. If any documents are missing, the member will receive an e-mail notification of missing documents or issues to be clarified. The certification process will not continue past Phase One until all documents are submitted and any clarification requests have been satisfied.
  2. Phase Two entails a review and performance of due diligence regarding the submitted documents, including, but not limited to: public information checks, verification with the respective Secretary of State, verification of SAM registrations, and reference checks.
  3. Phase Three entails the regional NAWRB board member calling the certification applicant for a telephone interview, consisting of questions for the applicant. If an applicant does not answer a phone call, the board member will attempt a second phone interview within three (3) business days. After the second attempt, it is the applicant’s responsibility to contact her respective board member to complete the interview. Certification will not be completed unless the board member is contacted and the phone interview is conducted.

Following internal review of all three phases of the certification application by the board of reviewers, external due diligence performance public records searches, and telephone interview, all qualified applications will go before a final vote of the Certification Board. Completed NAWRB Women-Owned Business or Minority Women-Owned Business Certification applications will be batched and reviewed by the Board on the second Wednesday of each month.

Within three (3) business days, applicants will be notified of the outcome of the certification application. Successful applicants will receive an electronic copy of their certificate and an exclusive NAWRB Certified Women-Owned Business logo package for their marketing materials, a press release to distribute to local media outlets, and a fact sheet on what to do after you’ve received your NAWRB Women-Owned Business or Minority Women-Owned Business Certification.

Applicants whom are rejected certification on any grounds will be provided a detailed list of reasons for rejection and will be given an opportunity to remedy their situation by petitioning the certification board for a second review with supplemental evidence.

Disclaimer: There are many avenues for WOB certification and NAWRB provides an industry-specific agenda, third-party certification that, like all certifications, may or may not be accepted at private and public institutions. Due to the changing WOB certifications, our use of the word “certification” in any press releases or on this website should not be construed in any way as approved certification through any specific organization or entity.

To challenge the certification rejection, the applicant must present a written letter that rebuts each reason for rejection, along with sufficient evidence and documentation.

Frequently Asked Questions

The information and documentation that we request is used to verify that the various levels of operations within your organization show that your business is:

  • The business must be 51 percent or more women-owned, managed and operated
  • The women business owner(s) must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident alien
  • Technical expertise in the Housing Industry
