Realtor Trinkie Watson recently earned a certificate from the Program on Negotiation from the Harvard Law School after attending an in-depth, week long workshop.
The course was led by Bruce Patton, a Distinguished Fellow of the Harvard Negotiation Project. He is also the co-author of Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In, as well as Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most.
“Real estate is all about negotiations,” Watson said. “This course really broke it down and gave us tools to navigate through a variety of complex situations, allowing me to further meet the needs of clients. It was an amazing opportunity.”
The Program on Negotiation was founded in 1983 and is a consortium program between Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Tufts University. Nearly 100 students and professionals representing 18 countries attended the workshop. Only five of those taking part were in real estate.
The certification is just one of Watson’s many accreditations and professional achievements. She is also a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, Certified International Property Specialist, Certified Residential Specialist, and Certified Brokerage Manager. A leading and esteemed agent throughout the Tahoe area, she has been involved in the sale of more than 70 lakefront properties.
Watson is also the president of the Lake Tahoe Music Festival, a member of the Orthopedic Advisory Council, member of Tahoe Forest Hospital Foundation Board, and chair of the Cancer Advisory Council.
