Hawaii International Real Estate Council The Professionals in Real Estate Business Management

The Hawaii International Real Estate Council (HIREC) is here to help members develop business opportunities related to the growing "international" market. It's an opportunity for members with an interest in international real estate to come together to network and learn.

HIREC’s Mission

HIREC provides member benefits to enable members to enhance their professional performance in a changing international marketplace and establish themselves as the leading professionals within the real estate- related industry.

HIREC accomplishes this mission by providing international-based education to its members, providing networking opportunities to create open awareness and dialog in global business.


HIREC is also a part of the Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) Network which is the specialty membership group for the international practitioners of the National Association of REALTORS®. HIREC provides the educational track that will enable REALTORS to obtain their CIPS designation.

The CIPS network is comprised of real estate practitioners who work within various types of real estate and focus on the “global” market. CIPS designees pursue international business abroad, assist foreign investors, help local buyers to invest abroad, and/or serve as an immigrant niche in their local market. Look for the REALTOR with the “CIPS” after their name because they are the Certified International Property Specialists of our industry.
