As we usher in 2019 we reflect on all of the good and bad of 2018. We must focus on the good, learn from the bad and do what Elsa said, “Let it Go, Let it Go, Let it Go!” Let’s move forward to a new beginning and be the best we can be!

The goal for Women’s Council of REALTORS for 2019 is to continue to grow, not only in our membership, but in our professional and personal development, leadership, referral opportunities and how we serve in our communities.

It is time to sign up or renew your Women’s Council of REALTORS Austin membership. You can go to www.wcr.org to join today! A bit of information regarding Women’s Council:
