In alignment with the Golden Week holiday season, Dean Jones, President and Chief Executive Officer of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) was invited as a keynote speaker for Cathay Bank on October 5th to share his knowledge on the Seattle and Bellevue markets, and discuss foreign investment trends coming from Asian homebuyers overseas.

“It was an honor to share the room with so many luminaries in the industry and I’m humbled by the growth of Cathay Bank over more than half a century of business in the US,” said Jones. “We can all agree the trajectory of international business between China and Washington State is among the fastest-growing in the US and we’re thrilled to share our viewpoint on the matter.”
Jones is frequently asked to share his insight on overseas investment opportunities both locally and globally, most recently having represented the Pacific Northwest on the Asia Global Alliance Panel at the 2017 Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event.
