Florida Realtors today signed several Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) for 2018 with three highly respected French real estate organizations: FNAIM Aix Marseille Provence, FNAIM Grand Paris and the World Property Business Club – it marks the first time the organizations have come together to sign this kind of an agreement.
The MoUs establish the cooperation of all the real estate organizations in developing mutually beneficial relationships for their respective members.
“As professionals in the real estate industry, we take pride in providing our knowledge and expertise to clients in Florida, France and throughout the world,” said 2018 Florida Realtors President Christine Hansen. “Florida Realtors, FNAIM Aix Marseille Provence, FNAIM Grand Paris and the World Property Business Club share common goals. We look forward to continuing our partnerships and building more connections that increase trans-national business opportunities for all of our members.”
As part of these agreements, Florida Realtors and the three French real estate groups “affirm the value of international collaboration and agree to exchange information in the general field of real estate, promote professionalism in the real estate industry and engage in other activities that provide mutual benefits.”
According to the French leaders, establishing these relationships between Florida Realtors, FNAIM Aix Marseille Provence, FNAIM Grand Paris and the World Property Business Club enables all of the partnering groups to develop a greater mutual understanding and more opportunities for collaboration.
The signing of the MoUs took place today at the Conference of Paris – the International Economic Forum of the Americas at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris, France.
