REALTORS® who are interested in taking their real estate business to the global level are invited to enroll in the Certified International Property Specialist Institute (CIPS) at the Silicon Valley Association of REALTORS® (SILVAR) on November 17-21. The early bird special price for the full-week of courses is $550 and ends on August 1. This special price is open to all members of SILVAR and REALTOR® members of other associations.

The CIPS Institute provides the classroom requirements needed to earn the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) CIPS Designation. Members using Proxio, the newest SILVAR member benefit, may find the CIPS courses very useful in advancing their global real estate business. The CIPS Institute in November will provide training in international business issues, including currency conversion, cultural awareness, legal and tax requirements, ownership and transaction principles of international real estate, and specifics about the real estate markets in Europe, the Americas, and Asia.

The week-long CIPS Institute includes the two required core courses and three elective courses. Students must pass a multiple choice exam at the end of each course. David Wyant, CIPS, ABR, AHWD, ePRO, GRI, TRC, SFR, will be returning to SILVAR to teach the November CIPS Institute. Wyant was named 2012 and 2009 NAR International Instructor of the Year.

Regular cost for the entire CIPS Institute (five courses) is $600. Cost for an individual course is $150. For this limited time through August 1, SILVAR is offering an early bird special of $550 for the entire institute for any AOR member. SILVAR members may enroll online at ims.silvar.org. Non-members may register by calling SILVAR at (408) 200-0100.

Limited sponsorships for the CIPS Institute are available. Each sponsor is given the opportunity to speak about their product or service on an assigned day. For more information about enrolling in the CIPS Institute, or becoming a CIPS Sponsor of the Day, contact SILVAR Public Affairs & Communications Director Rose Meily at rmeily@silvar.org, or call (408) 200-0109.

At the 2013 National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Conference & Expo last week, NAR recognized SILVAR with a platinum award for its 2013 Global Business Council Achievement Program. SILVAR was one of a number of groups to be honored as Silver, Gold, and Platinum Councils. Of the over 100 existing global business councils, only five were awarded Platinum Council status, the program’s highest distinction, for having demonstrated exceptional commitment to building members’ awareness of the global and multicultural business opportunities in their local markets.

To help members reach out to a growing number of foreign buyers interested in purchasing property in the region, SILVAR formed a global business council at the beginning of last year. The council chaired by Jennifer Tasto took a lead in planning global programs, hosting global education courses, and building awareness among members of international business opportunities.

In the past year, SILVAR offered two Certified International Property Specialist Institutes attended by REALTORS® across the country. Upon completion of the week-long courses and other requirements, 43 attendees earned their CIPS designation – 32 were SILVAR members. They were recognized at a breakfast ceremony hosted by NAR on Saturday.
