Roger Valente is the First Male to Join CREW Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, PA –April 12, 2010 - CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) Pittsburgh now has its first male member, L. Roger Valente with The Junkmen, and may have another soon . . .
Pat Valente, Roger’s wife, was a member of CREW who valued her membership so much that when business required her to spend more time in South Carolina, Roger stepped forward to take her place and continue their success in building CREW relationships. Roger, a former New York City policeman, is The Junkmen’s vice president who focuses on marketing to property managers and lawyers specializing in estate planning. The Junkmen is just what you think it is; they remove and dispose of “junk” from both homes and businesses. Raised by a single mother and the father of two daughters , Roger says, “I have never known what it is like not to be surrounded by strong women.”
Having male members is not new to many CREW chapters across the United States. Both CREW CT - The Real Estate Exchange and CREW Silicon Valley have 12 male members and CREW San Antonio has 15 male members. More and more, men are beginning to understand the value that women bring to the real estate industry. CREW Pittsburgh is one of more than 71 chapters affiliated with CREW Network, a national organization with membership totaling nearly 8,000 members, representing every discipline in commercial real estate. CREW Pittsburgh provides opportunities for its members to foster and develop productive and supportive relationships and enhance personal and professional growth.
