Why Join CREW New York

CREW New York has been the largest, leading and highest profile organization for women real estate professionals in New York City for going on 40 years. In fact, we were the first such organization founded in the United States.

It’s fitting that we were founded in New York City, one of the world’s most exciting, challenging, competitive and compelling real estate cities. New York sets trends; we’re leaders, not followers. Thus CREW New York, like the city it represents, has a long history of vision, innovation and numerous “firsts."

In a city as real-estate driven — and generally driven — as New York, you need a competitive edge. And that edge can be membership in CREW New York.

We believe that one of the keys to achieving success is participating in an industry organization. Unlike many associations with a single discipline focus, be it finance, corporate real estate or architecture, CREW New York draws its membership from the full spectrum of an industry which creates a vibrant membership of non-competitive disciplines from which current knowledge can be had and valuable contacts made.

The specific benefits of membership — education, networking and leadership opportunities — can be found below. But it is often the intangible that is most valuable. At CREW New York, that includes an environment of genuine support and sharing, a place where an entire deal can be done with your seat mates at a luncheon, where you are linked into much more than a website, and where, for nearly 40 years, we have been committed to leading change in leveling the playing field for women by building relationships that build opportunities and business.

Joining CREW New York and the entirety of CREW Network, will serve to advance your career and also support the success of women in commercial real estate.


Every CREW member contributes to the collective knowledge, experience, and voice of both CREW New York and CREW Network. We welcome industry leaders to apply for membership in one of the following categories:
