Bold Choices Yield Big Returns ~ How to Create a Great Commercial Real Estate Convention with Karyl Argamasilla


Karyl Argamasilla, the 2014 CREW Network Miami president and a key architect of the 2014 National CREW Network Convention in 2014, discusses with me how the local chapter took upon itself, the monumental task of hosting CREW Networks National Convention.

In this video, Karyl describes how the idea of hosting a national convention germinated from a mere thought to the accomplishment of a monumental task. The theme of the 2014 convention was “The Rewards of Risk, Bold Choices, Big Returns”, and nothing could have added more meaning to the theme of the convention than the bold action of Karyl and the CREW Network Miami chapter.

This was a great convention to attend, with an impressive list of speakers, including Hillary Clinton, Steve Forbes, Dr. Ken Rosen, Crystal Washington and Katy Kay, lead anchor for BBC World News America. Click on the above links to see my interviews with each of these great speakers.

This conference imparted to me the profound understanding that this is a conference that should be attended by men who are interested in commercial real estate. CREW Network, while about women in commercial real estate, it is about commercial real estate and benefits all professionals in the industry.

Something to Add?

  • Great interview and so glad to learn so much more about CREW! Thanks for sharing Howard and great to meet you Karyl!

  • hfklaw

    Linda, you should really consider being a member and participating in CREW. I am a big fan of CREW & YOU

    • Good point. I have wondered about that as I am an IREM members (CPM) and CCIM member and CCIM Designee and I am a licensed broker, but I really should evaluate the cost benefit of doing so. Thanks for the suggestion.
