The Illinois REALTORS® consulate general liaison for the Netherlands discussed Illinois and global real estate with representatives of the Netherlands last week.
REALTOR® Hans Volk, a broker for Berkshire Hathaway HomeService KoenigRubloff Realty Group in Hinsdale, explained his role with the Illinois REALTORS® Consulate General Liaison Program. He and Sharon Gorrell, Illinois REALTORS® Director of Global Business, talked about the real estate market in Illinois and how real estate practices differ here. They shared this information and answered questions for Herbert Wennink, Senior Commercial Officer, and Marc Nellen, Senior Economic Officer of the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Born in the Netherlands, Volk has developed a relationship with the National Association of REALTORS® bilateral partner, NVM, and he explained how agents can cooperate across international borders.
Volk is one of the most recent consulate liaisons appointed to the program, which is now in its third year. Read more about Volk.
