Not so long ago, if you wanted to be a player in the international real estate arena, you had few options but to hop on an airplane and travel the world to meet potential clients and referral partners. This limited the playing field to those who could afford the price tag that comes with being a world traveler. But that was before the internet. And email. And more recently…social media.
Now, you can connect with thousands of international real estate professionals without leaving your couch. NAR Global offers several channels for you to introduce yourself to the global real estate community:
If you are a CIPS designee, you also have access to a private, designee-only Facebook networking group. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for access to that group.
And, of course, you have already joined the conversation on The Global View blog. Don’t forget to sign up for email alerts or RSS feed to make sure you don’t miss any of the great content from the blog!
What other channels are you using to connect with global professionals?
