Celebrating a record-setting year for CREW-Miami, the Miami chapter of the leading commercial real estate association Commercial Real Estate Women, recognized at its annual awards luncheon business and real estate professionals who have made a significant impact on South Florida’s real estate industry and civic community.

Under the leadership of CREW-Miami President Margaret Nee, Vice President of Development for Pointe Group Advisors, membership over the past year has grown by 20% to almost 200 members, four scholarships were awarded to local female college students pursuing careers in the real estate industry, and over $40,000 was raised for CREW-Miami’s scholarship fund and education initiatives.

The board has also added two new membership categories that go into effect this year: Young Professionals/Associate, which allows a limited number of real estate professionals with fewer than two years’ experience, to join and student memberships, which allows a limited number of real estate students, with the endorsement of a professor, to become members at a reduced membership cost.
