Our mission

We exist to ignite the commercial real estate industry through the collective achievements and unique strengths of women.

Our history

MNCREW was founded in 1995, by a small group of local women who, after traveling to the 1994 CREW Convention, saw firsthand the power of the network in transforming members' personal and professional lives. Since its inception, MNCREW has continued to evolve to meet the changing needs of its members and the industry. It has become an important arena for members to hone their leadership skills and develop relationships while working collaboratively to advance women in commercial real estate.
