  • I have been actively involved in IndyCREW for 4 years now and it has not only helped me grow my book of business, but it’s also helped me grow professionally and gain confidence in the commercial real estate industry. It’s provided me the opportunity to take on leadership roles, be more active in the Indianapolis community, and has been one of the strongest networking groups I’m a part of. From the lunches focused around commercial real estate topics, to the Professional Development Breakfasts, to the networking events and tours all over the city, there is certainly something fun for everyone in this group!

    I’ve been a member of CREW Network since 2002 and can contribute most of my career leads, business leads and business contacts across the country to this remarkable organization. I’ve been involved in various networking organizations and I believe IndyCREW has some of the most talented, driven and supportive members in the Indianapolis market.

    IndyCREW provides valuable resources and access to talents both locally and nationally to achieve my career goals. In our business it’s important to know who to contact in the event of a transaction or for the many property management services needed. There is truth to the “Think IndyCREW first” motto – I think IndyCREW whenever possible and have hired many of my IndyCREW fellow members. Through IndyCREW’s networking opportunities and my involvement in committees I have met some amazing people and have gained some great friends in the process.

Not only has IndyCREW provided superior business and professional development opportunities, but has given me the opportunity to make invaluable friendships and personal connections.

    Soon after joining IndyCREW, I was invited to join the golf committee. At the time, I was a new to golf and unsure of how I could provide value. After attending a couple of meetings, I began to understand just a portion of what IndyCREW truly represents. Not only has my network multiplied, but I’ve been surrounded by the most amazing professionals who encourage, mentor, and invest time in my professional development. Fast forward a few years, and I am now a Co-Chair of the 2016 IndyCREW Golf Outing, Recipient of the 2015 Up and Comer Award, and looking forward to future leadership opportunities! I encourage you to #ChooseIndyCREW and join a committee!

    IndyCREW has been an amazing resource to me in terms of business development. Equally, important has been personal development through leadership and networking opportunities at both the local and national levels. CREW members are so fortunate to have a wealth of industry information readily available through people that are absolutely at the top of their game within their area of specialization. The key is to tap this incredible knowledge base by building relationships, getting involved and utilization of on-line tools such as CREW Biz. I love CREW because not only do I derive benefit, but it also gives me a meaningful avenue to pay it forward in mentoring others through programs such as UCREW which reaches college students interested in CRE!

    IndyCREW has become a network of not only professionals in the same industry, but for me it has become a place where I have friends who “get” the working mom thing, a personal board of directors to help navigate professional matters; a resource to possibly acquire potential clients and it provides me with a base of excellent professionals that I can refer to others. It is an organization that I am proud to be associated with.

    I would not be where I am at today, if it wasn’t for IndyCREW! IndyCREW and its members motivate me to get reaching higher in my career. I no longer settle for status quo. IndyCREW gives me an opportunity to open doors for others. Members are willing to help and will help, all you have to do is ask. After leaving a CREW event I always feel more empowered and want to accomplish more.

    IndyCREW is made up of a group of professional, caring and giving people.  From day one, they embraced me and made me feel welcome.  I feel part of something worthwhile and important where I know my opinion matters, counts and is appreciated.  IndyCREW has helped me with many business contacts I would not have had otherwise and as a bonus it has provided the priceless value of friendship with many interesting women and men.  My advice is to get involved!  Join a committee!  IndyCREW has helped me gain self-confidence and has shown me that I can be a leader.

    Having our network of members who can provide so many different services has been very helpful to me. I've made many "connections", both on the giving side and the receiving side. My company does environmental consulting, and we've provided many services to other members - from Phase I's to investigation and remediation projects.  The IndyCREW network is amazing!

    I have made numerous connections through the dynamic IndyCREW network! I have used an attorney to do work on a building, I connected with a member to do some site plans for another building and I have contracts with another member to do daily work in another set of buildings. I also utilized the network and found an attorney to speak at a CT management meeting on telecommunications law. I always encourage members to think 'IndyCREW FIRST' when they are in need of any real estate professional!
