As The Expression Goes: We have liftoff.

Our new AREAA Global website is just the first step on a long journey, but it is a vital one. Years ago, we had an idea to create an international network of real estate professionals to facilitate and encourage cross-border transactions. AREAA Global was the result of those discussions and meetings. It was created to give its members unprecedented access to a vast network of professionals on the ground who we could rely on to not only promote our investment opportunities to investors overseas, but to keep us in the loop for unique and exciting investment opportunities on their side as well.

We now have established relationships in Japan, China, Mexico, Canada, and all over the US. From Vineyards in Napa Valley, Luxury Resorts on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico, to developing projects in Japan and China, we now have the ability to open our doors and invite our members in.

So how did these international relationships come about? What makes our network unique, and valuable to our members? The answer is simple: Trust. Through years of partnerships and business relationships, we have earned the trust of our overseas partners, and have established a brand that is immediately recognizable for its high ethical standards and ability to deliver. That is the ultimate value to you. We have put the hard work in to cultivate this trust, and now you get to share in the rewards.

Having spent over 30 years practicing real estate in Houston and witnessing the explosion of Asian Americans not only moving to the city, but investing in its development, I saw first-hand the importance of being connected to the source of this foreign capital which was helping drive our economy. These investors aren’t sending their money to places you’ve never heard of, and are likely to never visit; they’re spending it in your city. This is your chance to capitalize on that.

Some time ago, I was tabbed by the Mayor of Houston to serve on the International Trade Council, specializing in Asia and Australia. During this time, I developed countless business relationships with influential government officials and real estate professionals, whom I still count as friends to this day. These are the kinds of connections that AREAA Global brings to its members.

I haven’t even mentioned the most critical part of our business plan, what makes it all work. You. A significant percentage of our members at AREAA are first generation immigrants, who speak the language and understand the culture of business in these international markets. You are our selling point to them. It is very important to many professionals overseas that they conduct business with people who understand their culture. For that reason, they actually prefer to work with our members, all else being equal.

So that’s it in a nutshell. We connect you with the right people to get your development proposals/projects the funding they need. Or, if you have a client who wishes to diversify his or her portfolio to include more high profile and complex projects, we have you covered on that, too. By partnering with AREAA Global, you are plugged into a high powered network of individuals all working toward the same goal: to connect capital with opportunity. It’s as simple as that.
