CREW Boston



I have always enjoyed that CREW is a space to meet and learn from engaging women with expertise in all aspects of commercial real estate. - Maureen McCaffrey, MIT Investment Management Company

CREW has provided me with an opportunity to build a network of supportive women that have shared guidance and advice throughout my real estate career. These professional and personal relationships continue to be the key to what makes CREW so special.




CREW Boston has expanded my network to include many amazing women in the industry! - Michelle Callahan, Nitsch Engineering

Being involved with CREW Boston’s committees and networking groups, as well as participating in programs like the Leadership Academy, has helped me become a stronger leader. I’ve also grown my network to include women from across the industry and built friendships that I wouldn’t have without CREW.

    Your Value in the Market: Strategies for Success in Negotiating Compensation

    On May 13th Hillary Shine spoke to CREW Boston about understanding your value in the marketplace and how to negotiate your worth in both a current and new positions. Hillary set the stage by indicating that people are on the move and there is a real war on talent in the marketplace right now. The pandemic has certainly provided people the time and headspace to think hard about their current work environments and how for many this last year has allowed them the opportunity to see the benefit of a hybrid work from home/office lifestyle. Shine stressed the importance of truly understanding your value by looking carefully at your entire compensation package not simply what shows on your W2 when evaluating and placing a value to your net worth.
