What a blast!

 

I recently attended the annual Coldwell Banker Bain Manager meeting at the beautiful Alderbrook Resort and Spa in Union Washington. The grounds are lovely with amazing views, an expansive lawn, and oysters for days! It was so amazing to see all the Principal Managing brokers and assistants together in one location. We all have so much to learn from one another, and rarely will you catch us all in one place!  We had a lovely time! We had a boat ride, some power meetings, and some fun relaxing time to explore the natural beauty around us. I am so proud to be part of such an amazing team here at CBBain Lake Union!

-Can’t wait for the next one!

 

Laurie Way is now a Certified International Property Specialist!

What can my CIPS designation do for my clients?

Global transactions are significantly different and more complex than domestic deals. From currency issues and financing to visa and tax laws, working with a REALTOR® who knows how to handle these differences can make or break a real estate transaction. Because of these nuances, it is essential to work with a knowledgeable and trusted professional, such as Laurie Way, a CIPS designee.

What is the CIPS Designation?

A Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designee has undergone specialized training to complete global transactions seamlessly and with reduced risk

The CIPS designation is the only international designation recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®. Only REALTORS® who have completed the coursework and demonstrated considerable experience in global business can call themselves a CIPS designee, and use the name and logo.

My certification is valuable because I have training in:

  • Currency and exchange rate issues
  • Cross-cultural relationships
  • Regional market conditions
  • Investment performance
  • Tax issues

I can now help  clients do business in over 45 countries, and ensure that the client will receive the same level of service no matter where the real estate transaction is.**
