A Press Release announcing the "East Meets West" documentary produced by RSIR reads, "Dean Jones, CEO of Seattle-based RSIR, also presented these trends as a featured panelist during the Asian Real Estate Association of America (“AREAA”) Global & Luxury Summit, which was held in Chicago April 19-21. These events follow recent symposiums in Seattle and Bellevue to Chinese investment delegations invited by the Washington China Relations Council and the North America China Council. Jones also frequently contributes to international investment workshops hosted by local development firms.
'The Seattle/Bellevue metro area is on the map overseas, especially in Mainland China,' said Jones. 'It’s yet another indication that we’re a world-class city on the rise. Global citizenship isn’t a trend – it’s a movement and local real estate brokerages are evolving to respond to this emerging demand.'”
