Houston Realtor Article
Rabih has just published an article in Houston Realtor coaching real estate agents in how to work with international buyers. The process of buying real estate is totally different here, so we must speak slowly and explain all the terminology.
Rabih warned that, every country is different, and it is important to understand the laws that govern how funds can be moved across national borders.
