THE MANHATTANIZATION OF SEATTLE

IS IT REALLY LESS EXPENSIVE TO RENT THAN BUY?

The cost of living downtown is rising quickly and it may now actually be less expensive to own than rent. Learn just how attainable homeownership can be with new mortgage programs today. But don't delay! Condo prices and interest rates are both expected to rise ahead.

Own the opportunity.

Ni Hao! A Window to A World Of Opportunity


The "Asia Desk" is a network of bilingual real estate brokers fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese or Korean who are experienced in working with the unique demands of overseas home buyers. To accommodate the growing number of participating brokers and clients, the Eastside flagship branch office in downtown Kirkland features an authentic Asian-themed tea room to host private meetings with international guests.

Behind these doors lies a dynamic approach led by RSIR into the Asian marketplace. This is a summary of our ongoing initiatives to emerge with Asia through exclusive relationships, events, collateral, partnerships and marketing.

DRAGON AND THE PEARLS

Making Our Market Matter to Asia

 Asian home-buyers have been a staple consumer of properties in Vancouver, San Francisco and Los Angeles for many years. More recently, alternative West Coast markets like Seattle, Newport Beach and San Diego have gained in visibility and even a preference given their relative value and lifestyle attributes. We are positioning ourselves to be a major catalyst for Asian home buying throughout the West Coast.

The Seattle-based real estate firm has partnered with key brokers, overseas wealth managers, immigration specialists and other centers of influence through the Pacific Rim to showcase the Pacific Northwest lifestyle. Known as The Dragon and the Pearls, the campaign targets Asia (mostly China) as the "Dragon" and arrays a string of "Pearl" destination markets along the West Coast.
