WCR members of the past and present celebrated their network.
The North Shore Chapter of Women’s Council of Realtors (WCR) held their 40th Anniversary Celebration at Lovell's in Lake Forest last Thursday. The organization aims to “empower women to exercise their potential as entrepreneurs and industry leaders,” according to their mission statement.

In 2006, the housing market flew too close to the sun. And like Icarus with his wings of feather and wax, a previously golden sector of the American economy plummeted to a bloody crash-landing. But real estate agents across the North Shore say that one group has an advantage: buyers. In the North Shore especially, there's a surplus of houses but a dearth of buyers.
