International Real Estate Federation


Fédération Internationale Administeur Bien Counciel Immobilièr

Founded in 1952 and headquartered in Paris, the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) is the only truly international real estate organization representing the entire spectrum of the real estate industry. Recognized as the official voice of real estate internationally by the United Nations, FIABCI embraces cultural diversity and promotes one common goal – to erase the borders in international real estate and provide the world with a team of experts ready to meet all real property needs.

“The opportunity to combine the joie de vivre with cosmopolitan colleagues, the knowledge learned and wisdom gained through the experience of international real estate transactions, and the nurturing of the next generation of leaders through FIABCI’s education and exchange programs has been and continues to be a fundamental cornerstone of my professional real estate brokerage.”

– Chris Webster
