AMPI and FIABCI Seek to Expand Market in Spain

With the intention of expanding business opportunities between Mexico and Spain’s real estate industries, a networking session was held for the major associations of the two nations: the Asociación Mexicana de Profesionales Inmobiliarios (AMPI) (Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals), the Mexico and Spain chapters of the Federación Internacional de Bienes Raíces (FIABCI) (International Real Estate Federation) and Spain’s Colegio de Agentes de la Propiedad Inmobiliaria (API) (Organization of Real Estate Agents).

Local broker Silvia L. Elias, owner of PV Realty and president of FIABCI Mexico, attended the meeting in Barcelona, Spain. In addition, she accompanied Ernesto Meana (AMPI vice president of legal affairs) and Ramón Tierra Torroba (president of FIABCI Europe) during the signing of a collaboration agreement between the associations. Referring to the work of the organization she directs, Elias said, “FIABCI has to play a fundamental role in generating synergies between both markets. Beyond a historical, cultural and linguistic relationship, these countries are experiencing high real estate activity and there are many Mexicans interested in investing in Spain.”

Elias also took advantage of her stay in the capital of Catalonia, in the Iberian Peninsula, to attend the Global Symposium of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (an organization with which PV Realty is affiliated). This event included conferences, property tours and social gatherings attended by prominent brokers and businessmen from more than 28 countries.
