SEVRAR Launches International Trade Mission to Panama
By Debra Allen, ABR, CIPS, GRI, GREEN and chair of SEVRAR’s Global Business & Alliances Council
Why go on an International Trade Mission when you’re a local REALTOR®?
Many REALTORS® pride themselves on being Certified International Property Specialists — understanding the importance of having a more global and diverse mindset in today’s real estate market.
A delegation from the SouthEast Valley Regional Association of REALTORS® (SEVRAR) will be attending educational presentations with immigration attorneys, accountants and the Panamanian Association of Real Estate Brokers and Developers (ACOBIR) in Panama from February 18-22, 2018.
All Arizona REALTORS® are welcome to join SEVRAR’s Trade Mission to Panama. More details here.
Attendees will glean an in-depth understanding of various real estate opportunities in Costa Del Este, Ocean Reef, Santa Maria and numerous beachfront developments. Guided tours of the new locks of the Panama Canal and the ACOBIR Presidential Installation Gala are also on the itinerary.
The primary objective is to attract and encourage foreign investments in Arizona, and create strategic opportunities with local and foreign companies, organizations and government agencies as a gateway between our two countries.
SEVRAR also hopes to host future trade missions to educate and diversify REALTORS® on international real estate practices and opportunities. The future of real estate investments is very diverse in this global market and we are keeping up with the future.
At the 54th Annual Economic Forecast Luncheon last fall, ASU Economist Lee McPheters forecast that there will be 120,000 new people will be moving to Arizona from domestic and international locations in 2018.
SEVRAR’s Global Business & Alliances Council will be ready to serve this diverse influx of new residents.
