Day, Associate Broker/Owner of McKinney Real Estate has focused on the international aspect of Real Estate, earning designations including CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist), GRU (Graduate Realtor Institute), and CRS (Certified Residential Specialist). His presentation was intended to introduce the concept of a Global Business Alliance to the regional community, show examples of how this concept has successfully strengthened regional economies elsewhere in the U.S., and seek support for promoting International Partnerships through Educational Forums and Business Relationships. It builds upon global and multicultural forces experienced within the United States, e.g., $82 billion worth of U.S. residential property was sold to foreign and immigrant buyers in 2010, 1.1 million new permanent residents are admitted to the U.S. each year, 13% of U.S. citizens are foreign born, and 40% of U.S. population growth has been by foreign-born Americans since 1990, to demonstrate the importance of creating a Global Business Alliance in the Southern Tier.
