Thank you Endre! Earning the CIPS has been a personal and professional goal of mine ever since I got to deliver keys to my buyers in Berlin, Germany. Given my background, where I live and frequently travel to, and the many transactions with global clients, it just made sense for me to join this exclusive club. I can highly recommend the course!

I am ready Ed Silva and excited for what is to come. You know there's this castle next to my parent's house that needs saving.. I very much like to play a role in its rescue and rehab. I know this designation will assist me in reaching bigger goals and a bigger purpose.
