Global Business Council

REALTORS® doing business across borders

Global is the new local, and members of the Illinois REALTORS® are involved in transactions that cut across all boundaries. 

Association members have a strong commitment to sharing and learning about other cultures in addition to encouraging organizational leadership opportunities that reflect the diversity of the membership. In 2015, the association signed a partnership with La Associacion Mexicana de Profesionales Inmobiliarios. 

Each year the Global Business Council makes recommendations on how to better position REALTORS® to thrive in an international economy. The group works with real estate organizations and a diverse membership to help members understand global is the new local.

Illinois REALTORS® has a program that works with international consulates to get them information they need for those looking to invest in Illinois. The Consulate General Liaisons provide information about the Illinois real estate market and develop relationships with the consular generals. The program was founded in 2016.
