No matter where you live, you can build your International real estate business by applying strategic and continual effort in your own backyard. That’s not to say that it’s always going to be easy, but we all know that things in life worth while lay, generally, along the road less traveled.
When I started my real estate career, I could not have dream that I would soon come to specialize in International real estate. To some extent, I stumbled into it and to another extent, it found me and drew me in. The real estate industry offers so many options as to areas in which to specialize. Why this?
A few years ago, I attended a class on introduction to International property sales. This lead me to attain my TRC, then my CIPS and then on to joining FIABCI, the International Real Estate Federation. Before long, I discovered that my local Denver Board of REALTORS® and Colorado Association of REALTORS® had International committees which I could join and participate in.
One thing has led to another and I find myself deeply involved in all of the above by holding Committee and Board of Directors positions for several local and International organizations. In addition, my team now specializes in inbound International and relocation sales. And, we’re growing.
The thing I love about this niche is I love it. I get to travel and I find it deeply rewarding both professionally and personally. You never know what’s around the next corner. International sales opportunities exist everywhere, everyday, and we just need to be aware, receptive and motivated.
So, when you’re looking for your next career changing opportunity, think big, think bold, never say never, and don’t forget to look around you. Your next big ticket could be waiting for you just footsteps away and well within your reach.
