Serving the Seattle business community and their housing needs is something Synergy Global Housing has been passionate about for several years, but the recent opening of a Global Solutions Centre in the Emerald City has us excited for what’s next in the Pacific Northwest.

Synergy’s new office, staffed by Synergy professionals, is only the first step for enhancing our customer support in greater Seattle area. From local experts who understand the difference in an apartment located in South Lake Union versus Bellevue, Synergy is constantly looking for ways to improve the guest experience in Seattle.

Pacific Northwest Relocation Council LogoThis week’s meeting of the Pacific Northwest Relocation Council is yet another opportunity for Synergy to show of its Seattle expertise. The PNwRC is a community of relocation and human resource professionals working together to enhance the education, collaboration and exchange of ideas within the Relocation and Global Mobility industries.

The PNwRC is one of the most engaged local chapters of Worldwide ERC, and this week’s Spring Workshop gives Synergy an opportunity to become even more engrained with the Seattle business community.

Even though the Spring Workshop marks the first time Synergy is involved, it is not the first event for Synergy’s representative. Synergy’s Business Development Manager Lisa Brand has been a member of PNwRC since 2000 when she was working for another corporate housing provider, and remained in the council while she worked as a real estate broker in the greater Seattle area during the previous four years. Brand says she is excited to represent Synergy within PNwRC as the two move forward together.

“This is the local chapter of Worldwide ERC, which means there are members from the local Relocation industry,” Brand said. “We try to focus our discussions on the issues of relocation that are really affecting the Seattle market.”

She points to this week’s workshop topic, immigration, as a crucial subject impacting relocation. The technology sector in Seattle is especially invested in immigration, as new regulations regarding travel and work visas are currently being discussed by countries around the globe.

In addition to her membership, Brand also serves as the organization’s Social Responsibility Chairperson, overseeing PNwRC’s philanthropic efforts. She helped deliver more than $10,000 in donations to various Seattle charities on PNwRC’s behalf in late March, and is helping organize events with The American Cancer Society and Union Gospel Mission in Seattle this summer.

This week’s PNwRC Spring Workshop will take place at the Talaris Conference Center on Friday, May 5.
