Knowledge of the market and industry can always be of benefit to REALTORS®. If you you have not already tested the the International real estate waters, what are you waiting for, jump in, the water’s warm. You’ll find an abundance of opportunity both locally and abroad.
Just this weekend I attended the 2009 FIABCI-USA Fall Business Conference here in Denver, Colorado. How could it have been any easier? This was in my back yard. I met such an incredible group of real estate professionals locally, nationally and from around the world. Some of the countries represented beyond the US were Canada, Norway, Japan, Italy, Germany, and more. I’ll be writing more on my experience at this even shortly.
While there is a plethora of information available online, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) provides great resource information on NAR’s International Lost Stallions: The Journey Home ipod web page and on the recently updated International Field Guide which provides direction for locating and working with international clients, etiquette, cross-cultural business guides and international networking opportunities.
Should you should have interest in expanding your business model into the International real estate market just let me know as I’m glad to share.
