In their Words: Hear from Designees

Howard Johnson Jr., CIPS Designee

“Since acquiring my CIPS designation, I’ve been more knowledgeable about what’s happening globally through the Global Perspectives publication and the CIPS designees-only Facebook group. I have even received referrals through the Facebook group and have successfully assisted expatriates and persons looking to Jamaica for a second home. It has been truly rewarding to have my CIPS.”

Kelly Mazzola, CIPS Designee

“The return I’ve had from the CIPS certification has already far exceeded the cost of the courses. Among our circle of friends, a foreign national couple decided to work with me over another REALTOR® close friend. I believe this is primarily due to their confidence in my ability to better service their needs thanks to my CIPS training. We just closed escrow, within 6 weeks of me getting my CIPS, so yes, it was definitely worth it!”

Terrance Yonker, CIPS Designee

"While Florida's 'Time is of the Essence' contract language is pretty standard to us, French buyers and sellers have a very different definition of time.-Especially in the summer! We had around 20 vacant lots to be sole and were blowing through all of the contract dates. However, per my CIPS training, we anticipated these potential delays and prepared the other side, armed with Extensions where needed. If we had entered each contract as a normal domestic transaction, we would have lost a good portion of them. We closed them all! Earning your CIPS designation before you attempt to enter this arena is invaluable."
