NAR convention beckons SA agents

The Institute of Estate Agents (IEASA) has announced a preferential travel package for South African estate agents wishing to attend the prestigious National Association of Realtors (NAR) convention to be held in San Diego, USA, later this year.
The convention is the world’s biggest real estate gathering and affords agents from around the world the opportunity to get to grips with the latest trends and to network with their international peers.
And IEASA says this year’s convention is especially appealing as it will offer local agents the opportunity to forge international ties ahead of next year’s Soccer World Cup, when South African property will be in the global limelight.
IEASA has had a bilateral co-operation agreement with NAR for over 30 years which, among other benefits, allows institute members considerably discounted access to NAR. IEASA is also a member of the International Consortium of Real Estate Associations and as such has access to the decision makers in the industry on a global platform.  This affiliation also includes the heads of many similar real estate associations around the world and by extension their membership base.
The institute has a strong supporter in the NAR presidential liaison for South Africa, Nancy Macaluso of the Florida Association of Realtors – the state with the highest percentage of South African homeowners. It also has an ambassador association, the Michigan Association of Realtors, the members of which are keen to make contact with South African estate agents, IEASA says.
The convention will run from 8 to 18 November and IEASA is offering its members a special travel package that includes flights and accommodation for a total of R17 500. It is also trying to obtain sponsorship for the conference fee of US$300 per person.
Among the highlights of the conference will be a meet-and-greet session under the South African flag in the International Business Centre and a general session with the former United States Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. SA delegates will also have the opportunity to attend the plenary session of ICREA and the NAR International Operations meeting, as well as some international cocktail functions, all of which would provide excellent networking opportunities.
