SVN | Ramshaw Real Estate Inc. Advisor Alex Ruggieri will travel a long way in search of solutions for housing problems.

Ruggieri, from Champaign, Illinois represented the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and the IHC-Global Board at the World Urban Forum 10 in Abu Dhabi, Feb. 8-13. That’s more than 7,300 miles from his home.

“First of all, I would say that the whole experience is consciousness raising,” said Ruggieri. “There is a big world out there and people are facing many problems . . . whether it is housing access or policies that allow for the equitable ownership of real estate, especially for women in many countries of the world. The really outstanding thing is that we have people working on the problem. NAR’s support of IHC-Global has a big impact as they try to change policies to help people across the world get better access and ownership rights.”
