Global Business Council

Mission Statement

Enhance the professionalism of Realtors involved in international transactions and to be the resource for international investment in northeast Florida.


Ambassador Association to Uruguay

In 2018, the National Association of Realtors appointed NEFAR as Ambassador Association to Camara Inmobiliaria Uruguay (CIU) in Montevideo. NAR has bilateral partnerships with more than 90 real estate associations in 72 countries. A major component to the success of these relationships is that the bilateral partner associations have a direct connection to NAR through a U.S. state or local Ambassador Association. The Ambassador Association provides an organization-to-organization contact with the bilateral partner association to share best practices, ideas, and solutions to common problems, as well as hosting delegations visiting the United States, when applicable. As an Ambassador Association, NEFAR has committed to:

  • Maintain an active NEFAR Global Council.
  • Submit an annual report to NAR on the activities of the Uruguay association.
  • Maintain quarterly communication with NAR's President’s Liaison and Regional Coordinator.
  • Host delegations for NEFAR attendees at NAR's Legislative Meetings and the Annual Conference & Expo and the Realtors Conference & Expo.
