We at CENTURY 21 Realty Partners just had a phenomenal time at the 2016 Century 21 Global Conference. We had a sizable delegation of agents and managers who attended the convention in Orlando, Florida. Our accomplishments in 2015 earned four of our agents Centurion Award recognition from Century 21. We also stood out by offering complimentary virtual reality headsets branded with the CENTURY 21 Realty Partners logo. Even more amazing was the custom VR experience showcasing CENTURY 21 Realty Partners created by UFOSNAP. Our headset and web-based VR experience allows anyone with a smartphone to see 360 images of our offices and one of our exclusive listings. The links are already on the home page, but if you haven’t seen them yet, put on your favorite VR headset and check it out with a modern web browser. We look forward to utilizing more VR technology in the future. It’s just another of the many ways we at CENTURY 21 Realty Partners are SMARTER. BOLDER. FASTER. Check out some of the photos from the conference below!
If you haven’t heard already, Trish Matthews a REALTOR® with CENTURY 21 Realty Partners has won the 2015 Texas Realtor Hero Award given by the Texas Association of Realtors. The award is given annually in Austin to a single Texas REALTOR® for “outstanding achievement in advancing and promoting homeownership in Texas. ” We are naturally very proud of Trish and her amazing accomplishment. Trish has first hung her license with CENTURY 21 Realty Partners in 2012 and has been with us ever since. In that time she has proven her commitment to her clients time and time again. She is rated a full five star agent on both her Century21.com agent profile and her HAR.com agent profile based on completed client surveys. She has been a proud affiliate of the Homes for Heroes® program which “rebates, and discounts for firefighters, emergency medical professionals, military and veterans, law enforcement, teachers and healthcare workers when buying, selling, renting, or refinancing a home.” When we spoke to Trish about receiving this award, she said:
I serve heroes everyday that both save lives and educate. It’s hard to believe that by helping them I can be acknowledged as one too. I guess I just do what you’re supposed to do and give back to the community.
— Trish Matthews

At CENTURY 21 Realty Partners, we are always striving to be the most dynamic brokerage possible. Since our company’s inception, we have always emphasized the importance of international real estate business to the modern real estate brokerage. Our agents have closed millions of dollars worth of real estate both here and abroad. We have built relationships with buyers and sellers from all corners of the globe, Canada, China, France, Mexico, and the UK just to name a few. In particular, Mexico is a critical economic partner for Texas with billions of dollars in cross border business. Monterrey, Mexico located three hours south of Laredo is the industrial powerhouse of modern Mexico. Monterrey is an leader in automotive, household appliances, logistics, machinery, steel, concrete, and glass production among many others. After improvements in the security situation, years of pent up demand have transformed this city’s skyline. Everywhere new shopping centers, industrial parks, condos, and offices are popping up. With so much excitement, we decided to go down to Monterrey to see the growth for ourselves and to network and learn from our colleagues on the other side of the border. Our delegation consisted of four people: Patti Beaulier, the broker/owner of CENTURY 21 Realty Partners; Calvin Beaulier, head of international real estate; Ben Fuentez, recruiter and manager; and Rosa Wilhelm, a bilingual agent who has closed dozens of international transactions.
We were generously hosted by representatives from AMPI, whose Spanish acronym means the Association of Mexican Real Estate Professionals, the sister organization […]
