Welcome International Buyers

Wilson Fung

Jessica was fantastic in helping us purchase our home. I am very fortunate to have her on our team and she made sure a smooth transition in our very tight timeline. She is super responsive and answered any questions we had quickly, and also worked with our busy schedule.

I worked with Jessica through the homes for heroes program to buy my first property on the west coast. She is extremely diligent and was a great partner through the entire home buying process.

"This realtor is awesome! Very convenient and hard-working for all who she works with. She was able to provide options and be present when required and very available for questions almost anytime. The ease of getting ahold of her made things so much easier! Thank you so much, Jess!"

Jessica Perla has been absolutely amazing to work with! I found Jessica through the Homes For Heroes program, and I am so happy that she is the real estate agent that the program matched me up with. Jessica's response time whenever I have reached out to her has been lightening fast. Jessica is very knowledgable about real estate, related laws, financing, and anything she doesn't know, she researches, and she has shared all of this knowledge and expertise with me. I would say that Jessica is tenacious, in the most positive sense of the word. Having Jessica on my side makes me feel extremely confident. If you are looking for an amazing real estate agent, I highly recommend Jessica Perla!

Jessica was great answered all questions and kept us informed during the entire process. Even with the multiple set backs and other issues she worked day and night to make sure we got those keys in our hand!


There are many exciting opportunities to own and enjoy real estate around the world for personal use and for investment.

International real estate transactions are more complex than domestic ones, often involving procedures and laws quite different from what we are used to in the USA.
I am one of only a few realtors in the San Francisco Bay Area with a Certified International Properties Specialist designation.


The CIPS designation is the only international designation recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Realtors with the CIPS designation are people who have not only completed the intense CIPS program but have demonstrated considerable business in global business.


It is a real benefit to have an experienced realtor at your side to help you with:

  • Identifying attractive international buying opportunities
  • Understanding the differences in real estate procedures in the other country
  • Finding trusted and expert real estate and legal professionals in the other country
  • Currency and exchange rate issues
  • Cross-cultural relationships
  • Regional market conditions
  • Investment performance

I have access to the CIPS network of qualified professionals to pre-screen and handpick the best realtor or team to work within the region you're interested in.

To reduce your risk and stress level, I will seamlessly facilitate the details of the entire process from search to selection to negotiation to document exchange to close.

I work closely with locals to get all your questions answered and ensure there's an oversight in every step of the end-to-end process to protect your interests.

Dealing with international property matters is a normal part of my life.
