NAR Expands Its Global Presence

The positive impact that REALTORS® have on communities around the world has reached another corner of the globe: the Dominican Republic.

The National Association of REALTORS®' leadership team traveled to the Caribbean in February to form an alliance with the Asociacion de Empresas Inmobiliarias, a real estate association in the Dominican Republic. The partnership will allow NAR to collaborate with AEI on common goals, and it lends AEI more credibility in its push for legislation aimed at beefing up the standards and integrity of the Dominican Republic's real estate industry. Right now, anyone in the Caribbean country can sell any property to anyone else without any sort of license or credential.

With the AEI partnership, NAR now has 81 cooperating real estate associations in 61 countries.

In the same trip, NAR leadership also went to Jamaica to welcome 400 new International REALTOR® Members with the REALTORS® Association of Jamaica. 

The two events signal a new dawn of opportunity for REALTORS® in the Caribbean and shows NAR's commitment to making real estate markets around the world flourish. Read more about NAR's endeavors here.
