NEW YORK, NY – The Manhattan Association of REALTORS (MANAR) is holding the first of many International training classes required to become a Certified International Property Specialist. Classes are being held at The Manhattan Association of REALTORS office in The Empire State Building.
MANAR’s Global council has taken the lead in planning global programs, hosting global-oriented REALTOR accreditation courses, and collaborating with neighboring boards to build awareness among members of the global business opportunities that are increasingly important to the NYC real estate industry. In October 2011, MANAR’s Global Business Council hosted its first major symposium, The MANAR Global Real Estate Symposium: Riding the Next Foreign Buyer Wave in Manhattan. Hundreds of brokers, agents, attorneys, bankers, academics and real estate industry experts from around the globe attended this unique program that examined how new global real estate investors hailing from the emerging powerhouses of China, Brazil and Russia are advancing on NYC’s real estate market bringing both opportunities and challenges.
Robb Pair, Chair of The Manhattan Global Council and Vice President of The Manhattan Association of REALTORS says “being that we are in New York City, it only makes sense to stay on top of the international market, the majority of my clients at Harlem Lofts Inc. are international. It’s also great to see fellow REALTORS taking advantage of MANAR’s international efforts.”
