RICS today entered into an historic agreement which forges a strategic alliance with the Counselors of Real Estate (CRE), the most prestigious group of real estate professionals in the US.
The agreement, signed at MIPIM, the annual international property conference in Cannes, will enable both bodies to offer enhanced services to their members.
The relationship will present opportunities for joint research projects, economic analysis, standards, information sharing and networking as well as enabling access to membership through accredited qualifications.
RICS President Peter Fall said:
Ã¢â¬ËThe highest standards of professional expertise and integrity are essential for success in todayÃ¢â¬â¢s global business climate. RICS is delighted to establish a closer working relationship with CRE, an organisation which shares its values.Ã¢â¬â¢
