Brief Description: Network of successful REALTORS® empowering women to exercise their potential as entrepreneurs and industry leaders.
Benefits of partnership:Networking, education, camaraderie. GMAR can boast that we are one of the few REALTOR® associations in the country that has three extremely successful Women's Councils, each Council having roughly 100 members. Networking, education, and camaraderie are the hallmarks of these groups. Their goals fit right in to GMAR's strategic membership services plan, making our affiliation a great one. By the way, don't let the name fool you. Each Council has an abundance of men, some even having male President's. How do we measure their success? We're planning for our fourth Council that will be coming soon.
