Our mission

Empowering, advancing and transforming women in the commercial real estate industry through networking, mentoring and education.

Our history

CREW-OKC, Inc. started as the vision of Julie Kriegel, commercial broker with Wiggin Properties and CREW Network at large member. In March 2015, Kriegel contacted Sally Hasenfratz, member at large of CREW Network, to gather interest about starting an Oklahoma City Chapter. This led to Kriegel and Hasenfratz beginning the pathway to create the local chapter. Instead of diving right in, Kriegel and Hasenfratz elected to pursue a strategic approach, by first hand picking and recruiting an initial board of directors, each one representing a different field of commercial real estate. Kriegel and Hasenfratz believed this approach would not only provide a great base of leaders for the organization, but also lead to a diversified membership.
