Buying a Home Overseas

I just returned from an amazing vacation in Thailand. This was my first visit to Southeast Asia and I absolutely loved it. While visiting Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Phuket, I imagined what living in Thailand would be like. For me, the hardest part would be learning the language and learning to drive on the left side of the road. The best part would be a home on the beach, swimming in the Andaman Sea, and watching glorious sunsets.

While I’m not at a point in my life to consider a vacation or retirement home in Thailand or anywhere else overseas, many are ready to make this move.

Although I am licensed to sell real estate only in Washington state, I still am able to help you with your overseas purchases and sales. Through Coldwell Banker, I have a network of real estate brokers throughout the globe. We have offices in 47 countries, including 4 offices in Thailand.

For more information on buying or selling a home, whether locally, nationally, or internationally, give me a call at 206-790-0081 or email Jamie@JamieFlaxman.com.

Vegas Bound!

Sounds like a weird headline for a real estate blog but here goes. I’m headed this week to Las Vegas for Coldwell Banker Gen Blue, which is basically Coldwell Banker’s annual convention/conference for it’s brokers and agents from around the globe.

It’s a great opportunity for networking – I’ll be meeting people that I can refer clients to – want a vacation home in Mexico or Hawaii or even Australia or thinking of moving out of the area? I’ll probably have a new contact there.

It’s also a great opportunity to learn from the experts. I believe that continuing education is important, no matter what field you’re in. I’ll be hearing from some of the top real estate brokers and trainers. Stay tuned in future weeks – I might share a tidbit or two with you.

Don’t worry, I’ll still be available this week if you need me. Just email, call, or text.

Dogs Need Homes Too

My big news is that we got a puppy on Saturday – Mochi, a black goldendoodle. Today is Mochi’s birthday, he’s 8 weeks old. Part of me thinks we’re a little crazy, puppies are a lot of work, but of course, so are babies, and my baby is 17 years old and I survived his growing up. 2-26-15 2

Coldwell Banker Real Estate has kicked off an initiative with the nonprofit Adopt-a-Pet.com to bring to life the message that dogs need homes too.The Homes for Dogs Project, which aims to find homes for 20,000 dogs across the country by the end of 2015, is launching alongside a commercial called Home’s Best Friend. The ad premiered last week and is absolutely adorable.
