The Global Business Council is made up of members of the Association 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 our members and affiliate members to work together to build “teams” of experts to professionally assist with all aspects of these transactions.
