CREW-LA exists to advance the success of
women in commercial real estate by providing
opportunities for business development
and professional growth.
Commercial Real Estate Women – Los Angeles (CREW-LA) was formed on March 21, 1985 and is part of a nationally recognized organization. CREW-LA is one of 74 chapters of the Commercial Real Estate Women Network (CREW Network) which has over 8,000 members across North America.

While one of CREW-LA’s chief goals is to promote the advancement of women in commercial real estate, CREW-LA is a premier multi-disciplinary group that brings together both men and women from a variety of real estate professions. With members encompassing all disciplines of commercial real estate such as developers, investors, brokers, lenders, appraisers, consultants, title and escrow representatives, asset managers, space planners, accountants, property managers, architects, attorneys and many others. CREW-LA members have access to a private national directory of every CREW member in North America to assist with referrals and connections in various aspects of real estate. Members also have access to a listing of local chapter members as well as a Chapter Bio Book that allows in-depth information about each member and their areas of expertise. Other benefits of being a member include access to an on-line job bank, both through the local CREW-LA website as well as the CREW Network national job bank.
Members of CREW-LA can enhance their professional development and awareness through several ways: monthly educational programs focused on commercial real estate; networking and developing relationships with other key deal makers in the industry; attendance at the national conferences and seminars; and volunteer positions on a committee or the board of directors. In 2006, CREW-LA established an endowment fund in partnership with the UCLA Anderson School of Management – Richard S. Ziman Center for Real Estate. This fund, known as the CREW-LA/Chris Adams Scholarship Endowment Fund, provides scholarships and grants for graduate students focused on commercial real estate.
