Mexican real estate association and Texas realtors have joined hands to promote real estate throughout the region.

Mexico is undergoing a radical transformation and is now seen as the new growth story in Latin America. Growth is being witnessed in all sectors which indicate the opportunities it offers.  The second largest Latin American economy is slowly and steadily coming out of its economic distress and transforming into a promising investment.

Historic Partnership Agreements Signed Between Texas Realtors and Mexican Real Estate Association

Recognizing this phenomenon, a cross-border, business-building partnership agreement has been signed between the Texas Association of Realtors and AMPI, Mexican real estate association. This deal provides for cooperation and collaboration in real estate throughout the region. Also 75 such partnerships were established between local Realtor associations and local chapters of AMPI during the Texas Realtors Conference held in San Antonio.

These alliances are a testimony of Mexico’s standing in the real estate community. The country is getting its due share of recognition as a country with ample of potential. The deal represents a commitment by Realtor organizations and AMPI to share information, marketing techniques, educational content and best practices. It is also a collaborative step to help members understand and benefit from international real estate opportunities.

Joe Stewart, 2012 Chairman of the Texas Association of Realtors, commented, "In recent years, we've seen increasing interest in cross-border real estate opportunities, both Mexicans purchasing property here in the U.S. and Americans purchasing property in Mexico. These partnerships will help Texas Realtors and AMPI members work together to serve those clients. It also further elevates awareness of international real estate, which will lead to more educational opportunities for our members and more resources for property owners interested in international markets."
