You and your organization are doing great and needed work. Thank you for all that you are doing! I look forward to working with you in the future!
Barb Schwarz Creator of Home Staging
Any exposure is so valuable to any business and especially when it is done in such a professional manor. That's what I love about NAWRB. Alex walked me through the certification process and really made it easy, and for that I am so thankful.
Shelly West-Chenoweth President, Atlas Field Services, Inc.
Our decision to join NAWRB stems from our desire to be actively engaged and a contributing member in our real estate community. NAWRB allows us the opportunity to collaborate with other like-minded women-owned business professionals and make a difference in real estate and related industries.
Sandra H. Cope Vice President/Escrow Officer, Inwest Title Services
I joined NAWRB because it is one of the only associations focusing on women in the REO business. I believe this is an excellent opportunity to be part of an organization that supports and encourages women to be successful in real estate.

NAWRB is a phenomenal organization that assists women-owned buisness owners in not only their ongoing education and development in real estate, but also in the networking of other women-owned business owners on how to grow their business and support one another with the added benefit of being certified as a women-owned business.

Lisa Ristow The Ristow Group
We cannot begin to say how proud we are to receive NAWRB certification. It is the result of lifelong work and commitment to not allow dreams to just be dreams. Thank you to NAWRB and thank you to every wonderful person we've crossed paths with along the way! Dream on & God bless!
Terry Rasner Reno Tahoe Realty Group, LLC.
Desiree is such a great speaker. I had so much positive feedback. People are asking me to bring her back to a larger venue! 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. Let’s get my membership up and running and I am interested in certification as a woman owned business.
Dianne Langston Quality Real Estate Services
I love how NAWRB offers marketing opportunities at a reasonable rate, while also making it a focus for the Real Estate Industry as a whole to receive education about all types of transactions in order to make it a more efficient and easier place to do business.
Nicole Romero
Thank you so much for thinking about us. I was able to get a room at the Five Star Conference at a great rate. Can't wait to see you there!
Raye Mayhorn Realty Executives
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.
Colleen Calnan Calnan Real Estate
I do not impress easily and was completely blown away by Desiree's knowledge and professionalism. After three years of attending C.A.R. meetings she wins the best knowledge-packed presentation in my book.
Christine Padilla
I have nothing but fantastic things to say about NAWRB! I believe in this organization. Keep up the great work! It really shows!!
Ivery Summers The REODIVA
I know a lot of companies ask if you are a member of NAWRB.

Willie Stewart Divine Realty

Hi there…thank you so much! It was a true pleasure…didn’t see so many items you mentioned…I always pitch that I speak English and Spanish…can’t believe I missed that! Again, thank you so much! This made my day!!!!

Liza Mendez Pedro Realty International

Thank you so much. Everything seems to have gone well and simple other than a large deluge of old paperwork to find.... Since attending REO Expo and putting in some applications online I am getting emails from companies who say they can certify us. I will be sure to recommend you if anyone ever asks.

Carol A. Kemp Kemp Real Estate, Inc.

It was great meeting you and your staff at the REO Expo as well. Just so you know Katherine has been extremely helpful and patient with me through this [certification] process and I’m grateful for your assistance.

Why choose NAWRB?

DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ASSOCIATIONS?

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.

WHAT WORK DOES NAWRB DO REGARDING GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS?

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.

DO YOU GIVE MEMBERS BUSINESS?

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.
