Welcome to FIABCI-USA – Bridging a Prestigious Past with a Vibrant Future
The opportunity to lead the continuing renaissance of FIABCI-USA is a tremendous responsibility which I am thrilled to accept. FIABCI has an impressive history as the only true international real estate organization in the world! I have been fortunate to have been part of this history, having joined at the behest of Rene Frank 35 years ago.
FIABCI opened my eyes to a world of possibilities, to global transactions, how other cultures conduct their businesses, best business practices and the opportunity to establish new relationships. These relationships established over the course of many years have enriched my life not only because of the information that I learned, but many of the people I met I am fortunate enough to still call close friends.
FIABCI is an international family made up of highly skilled professionals who are doing international business all the time, and all over the globe. We are not a group of average professionals waiting for the telephone to ring, but rather an elite group looking for the opportunity to create business, to make thing happen for ourselves and others.
I intend to continue to enhance the work begun by Immediate Past-President Maire Rosal and will continue to focus on revitalizing our FIABCI-USA Councils. I am very happy to report we have a truly dynamic Board of professionals with new ideas, a knowledge of new technologies, and the energy to carry through on exciting and relevant programing. We will embark on new approaches to old problems and attract more young people because we need their ideas and vision to create a vibrant association. Together we will combine the best of the past with the new techniques coming at us from every direction and incorporating them all into a first class association of which we can all be proud.

FIABCI-USA President 2017-2018
