Ghana Realtors gear up to GREES

The Ghana Real Estate Professionals Association (GREPA) will be hosting its first Real Estate Education Series dubbed GREES at the African Regent Hotel, on October 22, 2018.

The 3-day training event will host some of the above courses sponsored by international and local real estate organizations. Participants will receive in-depth knowledge of real estate market dynamics and techniques to sustain business. A team of instructors from the US will bring to the classroom their knowledge, expertise and tips to move your business to the next level.

GREPA is an organization set up in 2011 to bring Professionals in the Real Estate Industry in Ghana together for purposes of promoting the goals of its members, professional standards and ethics within the industry and provide an opportunity for local and international networking.

In 2015, GREPA was invited to sign a Bilateral Cooperation agreement with the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) of the United States. The signing of the agreement which took place during the 2015 NAR convention in San Diego, California was attended and witnessed by members of the Parliamentary Committees on Works & Housing and Lands & Forestry as well as executives of Ghana Institute of Surveyors.

The partnership will create a wide range of global opportunities and resources for GREPA members and Ghana. Ghana and South Africa are the only countries holding this partnership with the National Association of REALTORS®.
