Who are we?

We are a group of Certified International Property Specialists based throughout  Ireland connected with a Global Network of CIPS members all with one goal in mind, to provide a professional international service to our clients.


What can a CIPS designee do for a client?

Global transactions are significantly different and more complex than domestic deals. From currency issues and financing to visa and tax laws, working with an Estate Agent/REALTOR® who knows how to handle these differences can make or break a real estate transaction. Because of these nuances, it is essential to work with a knowledgeable and trusted professional, such as a CIPS designee.

All our agents are trusted CIPS designees.  We are also all members of the Institute of Professional Auctioneers & Valuers in Ireland, fully licensed, and working to a strict code of ethics under the guidance of the Property Services Regulatory Authority.


What is the CIPS Designation?

A Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designee has undergone specialized training to complete global transactions seamlessly and with reduced risk.

The CIPS designation is the only international designation recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®. Only Estate Agents/REALTORS® who have completed the coursework and demonstrated considerable experience in global business can call themselves a CIPS designee, and use the name and logo.

Once a CIPS designee has completed the coursework requirements, designees instantly join a tight-knit network of over 3,500 real estate professionals around the world. These referral partners can help a client do business in over 45 countries, and ensure that the client will receive the same level of service no matter where the real estate transaction is.
