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.
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.

You saw the eclipse- Now what to do with those glasses?
Astronomers Without Borders wants to share your used eclipse glasses with kids in other parts of the world for the 2019 total solar eclipse.
You may also mail your glasses directly to:
1010 S. 48th Street
Springdale, AR 72762
Special viewing equipment is needed to safely watch the eclipse due to the brightness of the sun and the dangers of staring at it for long periods of time. The easiest method to see the eclipse will be to use safely glasses, though those are becoming harder to find. Many stores and online retailers are sold out and the proliferation of cheap knock-offs is raising safety concerns. It is not safe to look directly at the sun during an eclipse. It is not safe to look at the sun while wearing sunglasses, and the eclipse may damage your phone, so do not attempt to take a photo with your smartphone.
If you don’t want to risk sun damage to your eyes – or fight the crowds trying to get the best view of the eclipse – you can tune in online. NASA has a day of programming planned, including live coverage from 12 locations, airplanes, ground telescopes and 57 high-altitude balloons. Coverage starts at 12 p.m. ET and ends at 4 p.m. ET.
