CIPS Designation

CIPS Designation

Elizabeth Allardice has been awarded the prestigious Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designation and joins a worldwide referral network of elite global real estate practitioners with expertise in working with international clients as well as immigrants. 

The CIPS designation, awarded by the National Association of Realtors, recognizes members who have achieved the necessary training and experience to work successfully with international clients and properties.  To earn the CIPS designation Realtors complete rigorous coursework devoted to leaning cultural differences and international business practices.  Designees must also prove achievement in international real estate transactions.

“With the introduction of the internet, communications became global.  In the triangle area of North Carolina global business is very much a part of our vibrant economy.  Fueled by our outstanding universities, technology, biotechnology, favorable cost of living, and the convenience of international flights, knowing how to work with international companies and foreign buyers has become critical for the professional real estate broker “ said Allardice.

Sellers who list their properties with Elizabeth Allardice get the added exposure for their property on many international sites due to the CIPS credential.

Additionally, Allardice is the sole North Carolina representative of Associated Realtors of the Americas (AREA), an organization comprised of a select group of brokers whose business model provides for strategic networking through an international referral system.
