BREB HOSTS FOREIGN REAL ESTATE DIGNITAIRIES

The Brampton Real Estate Board (BREB) was proud to host 10 Real Estate Dignitaries from India on January 25th, 2012. “The purpose of the event was to build relationships with Real Estate practioners outside Canada’s borders” said the President of the BREB; Chris Luxemburger. “As technology has made the world a closer place, opportunities in the Real Estate Industry also transcends borders”, explained Chris.  The board is hoping to make this event an annual opportunity for it’s membership to expand the networking opportunities with India and other Real Estate practioners around the world. The board is currently working on hosting a similar event with Real Estate Practioners from Italy as well as Greece.

“Canada is and has been a stable place for consumers to invest and purchase real estate; and the opportunities that our professional REALTORS® offer has been thrust to the forefront due to the world economy – this is an excellent opportunity for BREB REALTORS® to build these relationships globally”, says Chris.

BREB is a membership based association of approximately 800 REALTORS® from Brampton, Halton Hills, Caledon, and Bolton. The mandate of the board is to provide its members with the resources, education, and services to help them become Productive and Professional REALTORS®; and the promotion of this professionalism to the public.
