NAWRB is one of the leading voices for women in the housing continuum. From advocating for women at industry events throughout the country to providing your company with the contracting opportunities and individual attention to drive business growth, NAWRB is here for your success.
The National Association of Women in Real Estate Businesses (NAWRB) is the most visible women’s trade association specializing in the housing economy. It is the only trade association exclusively providing a voice for women and women-owned businesses in the housing industry. NAWRB is the only third-party, industry-specific certifier of Women-Owned Businesses (WOB) and Minority Women-Owned Businesses (MWOB) specializing in the housing economy.
NAWRB has made great strides toward providing awareness, opportunities, and access to both women and women-owned businesses in the housing economy. To continue spreading awareness of opportunities and take NAWRB to new levels, engaging and passionate members are needed to fulfill the roles of NAWRB’s Committees.
NAWRB works with government organizations, federal officials and members of Congress to advocate for the increased utilization of women-owned businesses across all platforms. The NAWRB Government Relations Committee and Regulatory & Policy Committee are passionate about government and the political landscape and remain knowledgeable in new and/or proposed regulatory and policy developments in regards to the housing economy.
Showcase your NAWRB membership by adding the NAWRB brand to your website, signature line and marketing materials. Gain publicity online and opportunities to submit content to our magazine. Take advantage of NAWRB’s advertising platforms and reach a wider audience.
NAWRB’s Members are given immediate access to our referral program with Strategic Partners. NAWRB’s Referral Program is exclusive to NAWRB members only and focuses on connecting members with listing opportunities within the industry. These referrals are free but are dependent on the needs, inventory and listing goals of the asset management firms working with NAWRB. NAWRB connects with these firms to increase the utilization and visualization of women-owned businesses in these vendor networks. When a direct referral is given, a member will receive a phone call or email stating NAWRB has provided their contact information to an asset management firm, or other forms of initial introductions will take place. A member may be requested to complete an asset management firm’s broker registration in order to obtain the referral.
Projecting your voice on a national level is difficult for any business. NAWRB provides our members with the support, access and connections to grow their businesses on a national scale. We advocate on behalf of women and women-owned businesses in housing and connect our members to other companies and government institutions. Our strong government relationships provide members with a unique resource, enabling women professionals to have their questions heard and addressed by leading figures.
NAWRB aims for an exceptional relationship with each member and we understand what our members need.
NAWRB offers the opportunity to build the membership experience to fit your needs in a diverse profession with two different levels to choose from.

The Regulatory & Policy Chairperson shall provide assistance to NAWRB in fulfilling its responsibilities with respect to its oversight of regulatory strategy and public policy positions.

The Events Chair is responsible for recruiting and training a team of volunteers to plan and implement all aspects of NAWRB events. This person must be well-versed about and able to articulate NAWRB’s mission and values. In addition, the Events Chair must be able to hold committee members accountable for their tasks and the overall goals of the events.
The Media Outreach Chair is able to contribute to sources such as blogs, e-zines, NAWRB Magazine articles, and promotion regarding members and outside publication outlets. With this committee, you will have the opportunity help shape our branding and overall media outreach.

The NAWRB Foundation is a nationwide non-profit that establishes community outreach and helps women in housing and the communities they reside in. You’ll quickly learn how to formulate connections in communities to help the foundation.
NAWRB works hard to give women the resources they need to grow and expand their business. Help NAWRB achieve this goal by being the Business Development Chair. You can utilize your sharp business-savvy skills to work on strategic alliances with other organizations and sponsorships. This role is encouraged to bring national opportunities to the forefront.
From NAWRB emails to the NAWRB website, you’ve seen the online edition of the magazine. Filled with critical articles reflecting the housing economy and women-owned businesses, NAWRB Magazine also features fun fashion ideas, enticing recipes, and ways to stay fit and healthy. As the NAWRB Magazine Chair, you’ll have the opportunity to work with important business partners and members in the promotion and strategic development of growing NAWRB Magazine’s readership.
NAWRB is the only housing economy trade association exclusively representing women business professionals 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, operated and managed. 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.
NAWRB is a leading resource for women in housing business owners in the housing economy accessing the government marketplace.
NAWRB pursues advocacy to increase women set-asides for government contracts and access to capital. We actively work with companies to increase the diverse spend and distribute assets through our network. NAWRB offers consulting opportunities to help advise, connect and assist on local, state and federal government opportunities.
Yes! NAWRB is a referral resource. As we work directly with several aspects within the housing economy: financial services; business banking; private, public and government entities; relocation; and advocacy, we receive many requests on sourcing diverse spend and opportunities for our members. As we can’t guarantee every member will get business, the more you are at the table from serving on a committee, being involved with event planning, an approved delegate, you have the distinguished honor of being at the forefront with executive personnel. Contracting opportunities in the millions to quarter million dollar contracts to individuals have been received.
It is very important to keep your membership profile up-to-date for sourcing especially if not involved in a committee as timing and performance is imperative.
