Women in Real Estate 2020: Chicago Association of Realtors' Michelle Mills Clement a Voice for Fair Housing

Michelle Mills Clement is the CEO of the Chicago Association of Realtors (CAR). An experienced association executive, she previously served as president and CEO of the Commercial Brokers Association (CBA) in Seattle, association executive for the Washington State Commercial Association of Realtors, and Executive Director of NAIOP Washington Chapter: The Commercial Real Estate Development Association. She is a Director on the board of the Association Forum, and a Fellow of ASAE: The Center for Association Excellence, an honor bestowed on less than 1% of the association’s membership.

The native Chicagoan is a passionate voice for fair housing and antiracism in the real estate industry. Under her leadership, in 2018, CAR issued an apology for past actions in promoting inequality and segregation in Chicago. She has been a vocal advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion, penning an op-ed for the Chicago Tribune on the importance of ending segregation in real estate and issuing an Industry Call for Action seeking more equity for Black Realtors and fair and equal treatment for Black and minority property owners. She has also spoken out on these topics at the national level.

These are a few of the reasons we chose Mills Clement as one of the 2020 Women in Real Estate Award winners. Connect Media’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of women who have reached respected positions of leadership and play key mentorship roles for others.
