The announcement was made during the company's biannual International Master Franchisors Conference, held recently in Macau, a special administrative region of the People's Republic of China.
"Extending the brand's presence in these regions is consistent with our strategic plans for international growth," said Rick Davidson, president and chief executive officer of Century 21 Real Estate LLC. "More importantly, it reflects the confidence real estate entrepreneurs worldwide have in the ability of the Century 21® franchise business model to enable business success."
Last September, at the Century 21 International Master Franchisors Conference in Düsseldorf, Germany, Century 21 Real Estate announced the launch of its global website -- Century21global.com.

Coupled with the brand's online, proprietary referral network, Global Connector, Century21global.com is linking global real estate consumers with the brokers and affiliated sales professionals of the Century 21 System in an efficient manner.

"International home buyers and real estate investors from both emerging and developed nations are not only finding relocation, second home and investment opportunities on the site, but they are also able to interact with the properties and with Century 21 affiliated agents in the language and currencies to which they are accustomed."
