When I came to Florida from San Francisco three years ago, I had no clients except for a few AMC's. I cold called on a prospect (bank LO) who said she only gives business to Woman's Council of REALTORS (WCR) members. I said whatever that is, I'll join it. My wife joined also.

Now, 3 years later, we have 9 independent contractors, 46 clients and process 250+ reports per month.

We estimate that 60 % of our business and growth is a direct result of WCR referrals.

WCR is a national group of REALTOR and affiliate members with local chapters. My wife and I are members of local chapters in 5 counties. Each chapter has a luncheon once a month as well as various activities. Their stated purpose is networking. The whole "food chain" is there: lawyers, lenders, title co.s, insurance people as well as real estate agents.

I would encourage any appraiser to join a local WCR chapter and become involved.

MIke,

I don't understand how you can join.,.. Woman's Council of Realtors???? Is membership not limited to women? Were you a real estate agent, or just an appraiser?

Been there and done that. Some areas they are a strong prescence.

Our Clay County chapter had a man as their president a few years ago. It's not gender specific - don't know why.

:huh:

TEL,

WCR is about 70% women and 30% men. As Pam said, they're not gender specific. I joined one chapter as a regular member (real estate agent) and joined the other chapters as an affiliate member (appraiser).
