The Residential Real Estate Council

Welcome to the California RRC

Words from our 2018 President
Sandy Kaplan

It has been my honor and pleasure to serve as your 2018 CRS/RRC California President. I am leaving you in great hands with our incoming president Joe Smith and incoming treasurer Melanie Hurwitz. Joe has put together a wonderful leadership team for 2019 and is always looking for more people that may wish to get involved in your regional area or leadership.

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. We, the CRS California designees and RRC members, have had various events throughout the year. These include 4 classes: two in northern CA (Santa Cruz and Pleasanton) and 2 in southern CA (West San Gabriel and San Diego). We are always open to requests for CRS classes and networking events in different parts of the state so please let us know if you would like one scheduled near you.

We have also held networking events at each of the CAR meetings Monterey, Sacramento and Long Beach as well as networking opportunities throughout the state including Tarzana, Cupertino, Pasadena, Carlsbad and Napa.

As I have shared with many of you in the past, the secret to getting more referrals is to travel out of your own marketplace to meet CRS members from throughout the state. It’s good for your business and it’s fun. The annual national Sellabration event is always well attended by Californians and I look forward to seeing many of you in Las Vegas this February.

Wishing you all a healthy, happy, peaceful and profitable 2019.

Sandy Kaplan CRS

Get Involved

Whether it is 15 minutes a week, an hour once a month or an event once a year, volunteers are the backbone of RRC. Volunteering also connects you to other members and expanding your network.

Contact the state president with your questions, a description of your expertise or interest and how much time you have to give.


Congratulations to the California RRC new CRS Designees in 2019!  Great job!
