A principal of West, Lane & Schlager, a commercial real estate firm in Washington, D.C., Mindy Saffer remains active in her professional community through membership in a number of industry organizations, including the Greater Washington Commercial Association of Realtors (GWCAR). Connecting more than 600 commercial brokers and other real estate professionals throughout the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia, and Southern Maryland, GWCAR is an invaluable resource for continuing education, networking, and specialized information. GWCAR represents the interests of its members in the local community through grassroots efforts and campaigning before the National Association of Realtors, as a part of the Realtors Commercial Alliance. Each year, GWCAR provides an annual report of the economic climate and real estate developments in D.C., which compliments the organization’s other publication, Commercial Broker Quarterly. GWCAR members are encouraged to interact regularly through multiple sponsored events, including an annual Golf Outing, tours of Washington, D.C., dinners, and the Commercial Real Estate Summit. During the summit, members enjoy prominent keynote speakers and panels of experienced industry leaders that share their personal experiences and insight on the market.
In order to promote excellence among commercial real estate brokers in the region, GWCAR offers a series of annual awards in a variety of different categories. In 2005, GWCAR recognized Mindy Saffer with its Rising Star Award, which honors newcomers who demonstrate an impressive aptitude for real estate. For the past five years, Mindy Saffer has joined the GWCAR Multi-Million Dollar Leasing Club.
