The National Association of REALTORS® hosted its annual REALTORS® Conference & Expo in Orlando, FL last month, Nov. 3-7. The Nevada Association of REALTORS® (NVAR) was well represented. Members of the NVAR Global Business committee and the GLVAR Global Business committee were on hand as well as Azim Jessa (NVAR Global Chair), Rena Levy (GLVAR Global Chair), Tamara Tyrbouslu (GLVAR) and myself, Diane Brown (NVAR Global Vice chair). The GLVAR Global Business Committee earned one of the few coveted Platinum awards and NVAR’s Global Business Committee received the Silver Award. That’s great recognition given 2016 marked NVAR’s first submission toward honorary status. Thank you, Rena, & Azim! To read the entire story, click here.
Have you ever wondered how to capitalize on the tradeshows and conventions that visit our state annually? One way is to host an Inbound Trade Mission. In simple terms, organize a real estate tour of your local area and highlight property you believe the participants would appreciate - and potentially think highly enough of that they’d consider relocating. For our local and state Global Business Committees, inbound and outbound trade missions are paramount to learning about all kinds of real estate opportunities.

Here is a brief outline of the GLVAR process but of course, you can customize and scale this to your specific situation, organization or business. The first step is to create work groups by asking committee members who may be interested in participating. Completing an interest form is an easy way to identify these.

Few professions offer as much opportunity, on a global basis, to connect with new people and create new relationships, as those in real estate. Not many occupations provide the chance to travel like real estate. The ability of a REALTOR® to control your schedule and pace of your business creates great advantages for travel. In another way, you are always “viewing the inventory.” This proves even more true today as global real estate transactions continue to gain momentum in the 21st century.
I love to travel and the real estate profession allows me to do that. My wife Brenda and I traveled to Thailand in 2015 and then to Turkey and Greece in March of this year. It takes very little time to connect with REALTORS®. In doing so, not only do you meet the nicest folks, but you always get tips on local restaurants and sites to view that may be off the beaten path or unknown to most tourists. Plus, you never know when someone may email or text with a prospect coming to your area. Read the entire article here.
