The NAR Diamond level Global Advisory Group at HAR develops educational programs and networking business opportunities for members interested in and currently practicing international real estate.

The advisory group creates and promotes the annual Global Day course, helps market the Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) Institute offered each year at HAR, writes the yearly member wide global survey, and promotes both the online “agent search by language or specialty culture” tool found on as well as the new Global Information Exchange (GIE) where global properties are listed by HAR GIE subscriber members. A quarterly global newsletter is created and distributed to those that have indicated they speak another language or specialize in another culture or have requested to receive it by contacting

Due to the overwhelming number of applicants to serve each year on the advisory group, it is preferred that applicants have the CIPS designation, or be enrolled in classes leading to the designation, and are active REALTORS. Below are this year’s appointed members and the 2024 honorary members who are invited to serve in a one-year advisory role to the group. Honorary members are former chairs of HAR, of the Global Advisory Group, representatives from other local association global programs in Texas, appointed Presidential Liaisons to other countries through NAR, international immigration and tax attorneys, etc.
