THE REALTIST WOMEN'S COUNCIL OF IL, is the local Chapter in Chicago, for the Women's Council of The National Association of Real Estate Brokers, Inc.(NAREB®).

As a local chapter, we are a sisterhood of professional women supporting one another and elevating the standards of women in the business arena.

Our Theme for "2018-2019", is "Seeds of Greatness." We are grateful for the seeds that have been planted from the inception of this organization; we are grateful for the seeds that are currently being planted; and we look forward to the seeds that future leaders’ will plant in our footsteps. 

We have eagerly, aligned ourselves, with The National Association of Real Estate Brokers, who has a national initiative to put 2 MILLION NEW HOMEOWNERS IN HOMES OVER THE NEXT 5 YEARS. This initiative was started in 2016. The Realtist Women's Council of IL, supports the #2MN5 initiative by providing economic opportunities to our members, who in turn provide home buyer seminars and workshops, housing counseling, legislative advocacy and community outreach.

We encourage you to join us and are grateful for your continued support.
