The CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist) designation is one of the premier National Association of REALTORS® educational programs that help agents build and market services global.

Bon Voyage
Bon Voyage!

I just got back from fulfilling all of the educational requirements from the CIPS institute, a series of classes including investment and financial analysis, how to work with international properties and clients in Asia, Europe, and Americas.  A two day course on international markets was prerequisite in order to take the CIPS Institute.  Please see for more info.  If you were on the cruise and need the application for the CIPS designation download here.

Here are the friends I made from the cruise.

Here are some pictures from the cruise.

Here is the PowerPoint presentation that I delivered for those that wanted to review or others who weren’t on the ship.

Here is a video to show you who was on the cruise, where they are from, and which company they represent.   Also, they can be a great referral contact too.

Here are some additional resources as promised:

  1. Blogging kit
  2. Social Media Template

If you want to get to know some of the instructors who teach the CIPS classes here is another video to hear more about them.

If you have an opportunity to go on the CIPS Institute cruise next year I highly recommend you do it.  It was an exceptionally rewarding experience to learn more about international real estate, make some great friends, and kick back and enjoy some time in the sun.
