The Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS® (SCCAOR) has been appointed to Vietnam as Ambassador Association by the National Association of REALTORS (NAR). This strategic appointment gives SCCAOR members and citizens of Santa Clara County a unique opportunity to meet and conduct business with counterparts in Vietnam.

“The City of San Jose is home to the largest Vietnamese population in the United States and there is a great synergy between the two counties,” said SCCAOR President Kevin Cole. “This will be a great opportunity to help diversify our population and create new business opportunities within San Jose and surrounding cities.”

SCCAOR will partner with the Vietnam National Real Estate Association (VNREA), a real estate trade association based in Ha Noi, Vietnam. With this partnership, both Associations will share economic updates, upcoming projects/developments, and other opportunities between the countries.

The Ambassador Association program, newly revamped in 2018 by NAR, provides an organization-to-organization contact for our associations to share best practices, ideas, and solutions to common problems. Based loosely on the International Sister-City program, this program provides a direct connection between real estate professionals in each country.

Earlier this month, the Vietnamese National Association of Real Estate Professionals (VNARP), a trade association based in the Bay Area, organized their 2nd annual real estate trade mission to Vietnam. The 36 official delegates, which included many SCCAOR Members, hosted real estate conferences in Ho Chi Minh City, Ha Noi, Da Nang and Nha Trang.
