Miami Association Of Realtors Partners With Mexican Trade Group
The 47,000 members of the largest local brokerage association in the United States now have the opportunity to exchange recommendations with their counterparts in Mexico.
The Miami Association of Realtors (MIAMI) has partnered with 15 local divisions of the Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals (known as AMPI). Mexico has been among the six largest countries buying property in South Florida for seven years, MIAMI said, citing its profile of international home buyers for 2017.
In 2017, Mexican citizens bought homes in South Florida for a total of $ 284 million, accounting for about 4 percent of all foreign investment in the area, MIAMI added.
“The Miami lifestyle, the incredible diversity of the area, world-class shopping, and world-class developments are just a few of the reasons Mexican homebuyers buy property in Miami,” said George C. Jalil, MIAMI chief executive officer, in a press release.
“Moving to a new Mexican president this year amid ongoing political instability is also driving Mexican shoppers to shop in South Florida.”
The deals mean MIAMI now has partnerships with 204 international associations in more than 50 countries worldwide with more than 100,000 real estate agents and brokers. In 2018 alone, 30 partnerships were established, according to the trading group.
The associations are part of MIAMI’s International Referral Network, which, according to the trading group, gives its members a “strong competitive advantage”.
“Consumers should seek real estate professionals who are members of the Miami Association of Realtors because they have international expertise, professional network and marketing resources to better serve them,” MIAMI said in the press release.
“These alliances create business opportunities for MIAMI members, strengthen Miami’s global position and strengthen the local economy,” added the trading group. “They also provide resources, visibility and connections for MIAMI’s international partners.”
MIAMI’s new partners are AMPI chapters in Mexican cities:
- Morelia, Michoacan
- Manzanillo, Colima
- Pachuca, Hidalgo
- Mazatlan Sinaloa
- Querétaro, Querétaro
