See the list of scheduled trade missions and other global events.

Global Advocacy

NAR’s advocacy efforts may concentrate on US policymakers, but numerous issues have implications that impact global real estate practitioners, both residential and commercial. After all, the global flow of capital and people can touch any corner of the US. But attracting those flows hinges on delivering persuasive answers to questions regarding visa access, adequate and affordable housing inventory, appealing tax incentives, infrastructure considerations, and numerous other issues.

NAR en Español

To support its growing Spanish-speaking membership, NAR created a fully-Spanish sub-site within the association’s main website. You’ll find translated consumer handouts, reference books, webinar recordings, Spanish subtitles to Window to the Law videos, an international referral form, and much more.

Take advantage of these resources when working with the Spanish-speaking community of buyers, sellers, and other real estate professionals.
