Truckee Realtor earns Harvard Law certificate

Staff report

Trinkie Watson at Harvard Law School.

Realtor Trinkie Watson recently earned a certificate from the Program on Negotiation from Harvard Law School.

The course she took to earn the certificate 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 in a statement. "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."

According to Harvard Law, the Program on Negotiation was founded in 1983 and is a consortium program among 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, according to Chase International, the firm where Watson works.

Watson, a Truckee resident who represents clients and properties throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin, Truckee and Northern Nevada, is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, Certified International Property Specialist, Certified Residential Specialist, and Certified Brokerage Manager with Chase.
