Austrian Partnership

The NC REALTORS® are proud to serve as the Ambassador Association to the country of Austria and the Austrian Association of the Real Estate Industry (OVI).

What does it mean to be an Ambassador Association? To accommodate our international visitors, and to expose them to the range of opportunities available to them throughout the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) organization, NAR’s International Networks Advisory Group developed the International Ambassador Program. The program is loosely based on the international Sister-City programs: NAR appoints “partner” state and local REALTOR® associations to each of the foreign cooperating associations. The Ambassador Association works closely with President’s Liaison assigned to that country and NAR’s Regional Coordinator for that part of the world. The program also gives members of the Ambassador Association the opportunity to expand their global business networks and get involved in international real estate activities at the local or state level.

OVI and its leadership graciously hosted a delegation from NC REALTORS® in Vienna, Austria in March of 2018, where our two organizations engaged in idea and information exchange, presentations of local listings and real estate offices, and dialogue on how to benefit American and Austrian REALTORS® through professional and interpersonal relationships.
