Newport Beach, CA, September 28, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- For Catrina Catalano of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties, continuing education is an important aspect of her commitment to provide her clients with exceptional service. An experienced real estate professional and seasoned world traveler, Catalano recently completed a comprehensive series of coursework to earn the Certified International Property Specialist designation from the National Association of Realtors®.
Attaining the designation required Catalano to enhance her knowledge of how to effectively serve international buyers and sellers. “Being raised and educated in Singapore and Papua New Guinea, and born in Australia, this designation is directly related to my passion for travel as well as the services I offer my clients,” notes Catalano.
An award winner for her sales, Catalano also holds the Green Property Advisor designation, the Short Sale Specialist designation and the At Home With Diversity® designation by the National Association of Realtors®. She specializes in residential purchases and sales in Orange County yet often travels as far as Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, and Alameda Counties to accommodate the needs of her clients.
“Simply put, I do everything I can to deliver a positive result for my clients and I don’t rest until the job is done,” adds Catalano, a 17 year cancer survivor. She is a lifetime member of the Thyroid Cancer Survivors Association and has been a participant and team captain for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Fullerton, Irvine and Newport Beach for the past 10 years.
Catalano also supports the Orange County chapter of Girls, Inc., the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the United Negro College Fund. Her love for travel has taken her to five of the seven continents; she looks forward to crossing the remaining two continents off her list in the next few years.
