Our mission

CREW Nashville exists to elevate women to the forefront of commercial real estate.

Our history

CREW Nashville, formerly Women In Commercial Real Estate Nashville (or WCRE Nashville), was an idea first discussed in October of 1991. Armed with the concept of an organization to encourage networking among women in commercial real estate, the first meeting was held in February of 1992. With 13 women in attendance, the name of the organization was approved and the first officers were elected: Chuck Collins, President; Trina Ralls Williams, Program Chair; Leslie Pomeroy, Secretary; and Pat Briley, Treasurer.

In February 2019, WCRE Nashville was approved as an affiliated chapter of CREW Network, and changed our name to CREW Nashville.
