Prominent International Real Estate Professional Alek Carrera Joins Sally Forster Jones Group to Lead Global Efforts as Executive Vice President of Global Markets; Announcement Comes on the Heels of Compass' Newly Unveiled International Referral Program in Collaboration with BARNES International

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Sally Forster Jones, founder and CEO of leading real estate team Sally Forster Jones Group at Compass, has unveiled an ambitious plan for growing the brand's international presence amidst increasing client demand for access to luxury properties worldwide.

To spearhead this global endeavor, Forster Jones has enlisted the expertise of Alek Carrera, a distinguished international real estate veteran, to join the Sally Forster Jones Group in Beverly Hills as Executive Vice President of Global Markets. In addition to bringing an exceptional 12-year industry track record, Carrera has extensive experience in high-profile luxury properties throughout Latin America and Europe, particularly Mexico, Panama, Spain, and Italy. This strategic partnership will bring forth a wealth of benefits for the Sally Forster Jones Group's clients seeking to buy, sell, or invest in some of the world's best properties across the globe.

"I am incredibly excited to join the Sally Forster Jones Group to spearhead the brand's international presence across Latin America, Europe, and beyond," said Carrera. "By joining forces and by leveraging my expertise, I am confident that we will bring the real estate experience for our clients to new heights."

"This partnership is a testament to our shared vision of providing unmatched real estate solutions," said Forster Jones. "Together, we will combine our deep industry expertise, global connections, and cutting-edge marketing strategies to exceed our clients' expectations. We are thrilled to welcome Alek to the team and embark on this exciting journey."

The Alek Carrera Group is headquartered in Beverly Hills and boasts an impressive portfolio, featuring marketing collaborations with major developers in Latin America and Europe, involving property of nearly $1 billion. Among the group's current collaborations are a magnificent $200 million future development in Cabo, Mexico, four architecturally acclaimed golf properties in Mexico City, a striking $100 million hotel and casino in Central America, and a sprawling 20,000-square-foot, three-story penthouse in Panama, poised to become the largest penthouse in all of Latin America.

"The luxury real estate market in Mexico and Latin America is attractive to buyers and investors from the US, Canada, Europe and Asia due to its affordability, favorable exchange rates, high returns, diversification opportunities, desirable lifestyle and retirement options." Said Carrera. "Factors like these, along with the economic growth, favorable taxation policies, and a booming tourism industry in certain Latin American countries, make real estate investments in these regions appealing for those seeking second homes, vacation properties, or profitable ventures."

"With the world gradually reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic, American investors are seeking opportunities in Latin America to diversify their portfolios," continued Forster Jones. "Notably, buyers from Los Angeles, a key feeder city to Mexico and Latin America, are particularly drawn to these regions for their investment potential and the allure of stunning properties in beautiful surroundings."

Sally Forster Jones Group's international marketed offerings are further solidified with Compass' newly unveiled international referral program in collaboration with established player in the global luxury real estate market, BARNES International Realty. Spanning across 20 countries worldwide, this new innovative program will offer Compass agents and Sally Forster Jones Group access to a greater, expansive network of 130 offices globally, providing clients deeper entryway to some of the most sought-after properties across multiple international destinations, including Paris, Geneva, London, and Dubai, as well as coveted holiday destinations such as Saint-Tropez, Cannes, and Monaco.
