I hate to say really the answer is NO! I would not advise you going outside the US unless you understand risk. Many sad stories of overseas investors. Also, we use local partners for US and international locations. So yes we can help you, but no it really is our partners outside SoCal.
My advise is make sure who ever you use has a strong local partner with track record.
Hope this helps!
So I guess the answer to your question is YES!
I hope this helps you.
In the Central Valley we are seeing 10-20% ROI/year. Check out my blog to see some "real" investment purchases and returns.

Buying real estate in Mexico or Italy is nothing like it is in the US. Keep in mind one must understand the culture and be able to communicate fluently. Best of luck.
The world is a big place and real estate is very local. No real estate company is represented everywhere. Most of the large real estate companies have offices throughout the USA along with offices in some countries, mine included (EXIT Realty International). Some of us have further relationships with companies and agents in specific countries and cities within. The real issue is where you are interested in investing and what kind of investment? I may be able to help you if you could answer these two questions. Also, you should be dealing only with "agents" who specialize in investment properties and can better advise you in your search. It is not the company, but the agent that you deal with that is most important. Mistakes can be costly.
