Your Global Consultants teach a range of classes and deliver seminars on topics related to real estate practitioners working in the international marketplace. Our classes are based upon our own recent and ongoing experiences in the global real estate market, and we deliver practical advice to help students avoid potential pitfalls, overcome issues they may encounter, and ensure success in their business.
We “team teach” some classes – two instructors in the room who have spent years working together as partners in the real estate business, each with their own specialized knowledge and experience. Students benefit from this approach and gain a more balanced and comprehensive knowledge of the subjects being taught.
We offer a number of our own proprietary training courses and seminars, and can tailor these to meet your exact requirements if needed. Current offerings include:
