NAR Adds 2 New Global Partners for a Total of 107

NAR’s global network extends to 87 countries. New to the list: The Association of Estate Agents in Nigeria and Association of Real Estate Agents of Trinidad and Tobago.

CHICAGO – The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) announced today the addition of two new real estate partners to its network of global partner associations: the Association of Estate Agents in Nigeria and the Association of Real Estate Agents of Trinidad and Tobago.

With the new entrants, NAR’s global network expands to 107 partners in 87 countries.

“Adding to an already extensive network of global partners, these new agreements highlight our engagement team’s sustained commitment to enhancing NAR’s brand recognition and expanding the business opportunities and support we provide to Realtors® and consumers around the world,” says Katie Johnson, NAR’s general counsel and chief member experience officer. “We are thrilled to welcome two new international partners to our NAR family, and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with both the Association of Estate Agents in Nigeria and the Association of Real Estate Agents of Trinidad and Tobago.”

NAR says the agreement with Nigeria ensures members can more easily build inbound and outbound business contacts in the country, which now has the largest economy in Africa.

“We are very excited to commence this partnership with NAR today,” says Kunle Adedeji, chairman of the Association of Estate Agents in Nigeria. “One of the objectives of AEAN is to open our membership to broader experiences and also to open Nigeria to global opportunity. This partnership puts AEAN amongst global peers, which will further help in our service capabilities and build better understanding along global lines.”

In the Southern Caribbean, the Association of Real Estate Agents of Trinidad and Tobago took a leading role in the island nation’s private real estate sector as its agents prioritize an ethical, educated and transparent domestic market.

“We look forward to opening channels through NAR to exchange investment opportunities with our U.S. and international counterparts, and to encouraging interest in Trinidad and Tobago’s real estate and its extensive development potential,” says Mark Edghill, president of the Association of Real Estate Agents of Trinidad and Tobago.

NAR says its bilateral partnerships allow members to conduct business around the world with trusted professionals who hold themselves to a strict code of ethics.
