Honoring® international with the Global Achievement Award

Earlier this month, we had the distinct pleasure of honoring the® international team with the Global Achievement Award. The award was presented at the International Night Out Gala during the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Francisco.

The award recognizes a person or company achieving excellence in global business services by fostering the exchange of timely and accurate real estate information across borders, and helping to create and grow international relationships among real estate professionals.

So why® international? “Selecting the® international website and team for the Global Achievement Award made absolute sense to us,” said Janet Branton, NAR Senior Vice President of Commercial & Global Services. “They collaborated with us to create an international listings site with translation to connect agents with buyers and sellers around the world. They helped make a longtime dream come true, and the subsequent success of the site has been thrilling to watch.”® international features listings from 37 countries, translation services in 11 languages, and currency and unit conversion. In the short amount of time since the site launched, there are more than 4 million active listings, including over 1.7 million international listings.

The site is getting its share of international traffic –®’s sites currently attract more than 1 million non-U.S. visitors per month from all over the world. Data about which countries are searching U.S. listings, and which U.S. markets are most searched by global buyers on®, is available on

Congratulations to the® international team on this well-deserved recognition! Their hard work and success is appreciated by NAR and has positively impacted international real estate for years to come.
