Global Leadership Advisory Group 

Global Leadership Advisory Group

The mission of NVAR’s Global Leadership Advisory Group is to increase NVAR members’ awareness of global business opportunities – both inbound and outbound – and to attract international investment to our incredibly diverse and culturally rich region.


The Global Leadership Advisory Group is comprised of the Chairs and Vice-Chairs from the NVAR Cultural Forums and the International Business Forum. The group consults on NVAR global programming, international real estate activities and conferences and provides expertise on the future of global real estate.

Northern Virginia is an ethnically and culturally diverse area where almost a third of the population was born outside of the U.S. and nearly 40% of the region’s population uses a language other than English in their home. Annually almost 10,000 non-U.S. citizens move into the Northern Virginia area from a location outside the U.S. Serving such an evolving community with an ever growing, ever changing cultural landscape requires that NVAR must always adapt and change to capitalize on the opportunities that our Realtors® and brokers find in the marketplace.
