For the second year in a row, the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS® (RRAR) has been awarded the Platinum Global Achievement Program Award from the National Association of REALTORS® - this award places RRAR in the top 10% of Global Councils nationwide.
RRAR has shown the highest level of service to its members by consistently providing them with the tools needed to excel in international real estate, as well as connecting members to the global opportunities of the local market. The services and resources provided to their members are the benchmarks upon which the standards have been set.
Over the past several years, the Association has produced the 2019 Profile of International Transactions, successfully worked to become the official Ambassador Association to NAR - India, help sponsor the 33rd Annual Raleigh International Festival, host the CIPS Designation Institute, launch translation services for RRAR Members, execute multiple networking and professional development opportunities, and much more.
"Serving as chair of our International Council has been a life-changing experience," said Lisa Thomas, International Council Chair. "Enabling our members to work and serve in the surrounding communities, while collaborating with international groups on a local, state, and national level is what our mission is all about."
"As our local industry becomes increasingly more global, we are eager to embrace the challenge and opportunity of being a resource for all of our professionals in the North Carolina community. We are in a unique position to help our region grow by showcasing ourselves to the international community, while positioning the entire Triangle for prosperity," said Casey Angel, Vice President of Policy & Engagement and Staff Liaison to the International Council.
The Triangle International Council was formally recognized at the organization's REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Francisco, California, on November 9, 2019. For more information about RRAR's global efforts, or to get involved, visit www.RRAR.com/Global.
