Brigitte Cabeza-Shanken of Coldwell Banker Holtzman, Realtors recently earned a certified international property specialist designation and joins a worldwide network of global real-estate practitioners with expertise in working with international clients as well as serving the growing multicultural population in the United States.
The CIPS designation is awarded by the National Association of Realtors, the world’s largest trade association representing more than 1 million realtors in the United States.
The CIPS designation recognizes members who have achieved the necessary training and experience to work successfully with international clients and properties.
To earn the designation, realtors complete rigorous coursework devoted to learning cultural differences and international business practices.
Designees also must prove achievement in international real-estate transactions.
Cabeza-Shanken joins a society of more than 2,000 real-estate professionals throughout the world and fewer than 20 realtors in Georgia who have earned the CIPS designation.
She formally was recognized by her broker and chairman of the Georgia Real Estate Commission, George Holtzman, and his wife, Babs, during their annual awards reception for Coldwell Banker Holtzman, Realtors.
Cabeza-Shanken also recently was inducted into the Hinesville Rotary Club.
