Wednesday evening in Chicago the Illinois REALTORS® consulate liaisons got together for an after-hours session to network, share information and to strategize on ways to collaborate and an improve methods to convey the REALTOR® message to foreign representatives.
With the program in its second year, the team has increased in size and many have had great success in their initial meetings with the Consulate offices. Having that experience under their belt gives them the ability to share best practices with their colleagues and team members.
This informal networking session gave opportunity to build relationships and learn from each other. They also had a special guest via Skype. Sharon von Schoenberg, Program Manager for Global Services for the The Canadian Real Estate Association called in and shared information on how our members can tap into information and resources with their Canadian colleagues.
