Cascade Sotheby’s exceeded $1.3 billion in closed sales in 2017 and continues its innovative approach to uniting extraordinary lives with extraordinary homes.
BEND, Ore. (PRWEB) October 25, 2018
Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty welcomes a new manager of broker relations, Corinne Burt. Burt will support brokers with both compliance and best practices so they can provide the first-class service which is the hallmark of the Sotheby’s brand. In addition, she will keep the firm current with changing state, local and regional regulations governing real estate transactions.
“Compliance and best practices are constantly evolving—these are some of the fundamental tools brokers use on a daily basis to yield the best possible client experience,” says Burt, whose background combines business litigation, business ownership, and real estate practice with Vanguard Properties, a boutique San Francisco Bay Area brand. “Sotheby’s is a superb brand—the company has a corporate structure which focuses on broker support, which, in turn, allows brokers to do the very best job for their clients.”
As a former business litigator, Burt is accustomed to and comfortable with the details of complex business transactions. She brings a profound understanding of the nature of various rules and regulations that impact different types of properties whether farm, ranch, vineyard, oceanfront property, or residential acreage. She also brings a practical and intuitive understanding of the nature of brokers and the way they work.
“Every transaction is different—whether a purchase or a sale—and requires a comprehensive understanding of disclosures, legal knowledge and an understanding of local and state transactions,” says Deb Tebbs, chief executive officer of Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty. “We welcome Corinne’s unique legal experience and real estate expertise to support our growing team of brokers.”
