ECAR Global Business Council


Mission Statement

The Global Business Committee’s primary mission is to inspire and enable local Realtors to achieve success in the global real estate arena. We provide a network of local, state & national education, community activities, and networking functions that empower members to break down cultural barriers and conduct residential and commercial business beyond borders.

What is Global Business Council?

The Global Business Council is made up of members of the Association and Strategic partners who realize that we live in a global economy and that working with international clients is a daily part of the real estate business. They understand the importance of being educated and informed about the issues that impact foreign buyers and sellers. We encourage ECAR members to work together to build “teams” of experts to professionally assist with all aspects of these transactions. Sign up today to be informed and have access to events, trade missions, education and resources.

About the Certified International Property Specialist Designation (CIPS)

Global real estate opportunities are everywhere. People move to the U.S. from other countries every day and foreign-born individuals residing in the U.S. move to new markets. Americans in your current market may look to invest in property overseas. No matter which audience you cater to, the CIPS designation will provide you with the knowledge, research, network and tools to globalize and expand your business.
