¡Bienvenidos! Bem vindo! Welcome!
Travel with Texas: Virtual Trade Missions to Brazil and Mexico were hosted on June 22 and 23. Texas REALTORS® partnered with three international associations, COFECI, Secovi-SP, and AMPI, to spotlight Brazil and Mexico’s real estate markets. The two trade missions were packed with both residential and commercial expertise and concluded with networking sessions, which provided an exciting opportunity to learn and make connections.
Each trade mission was accompanied by free continuing education courses. Texas REALTORS® Global Committee Vice Chair Socar Chatmon-Thomas instructed Building Value through International Networking and Texas REALTORS® Global Committee Past Chair Holly Hightower instructed Doing Business with International Buyers.
Texas REALTORS® was honored to have over 230 participants in total from across the world join us on this international journey.
