As a result of his travels, dedicated team, and active networking, Chinese buyers now account for 20% of Dickinson’s business, and he expects that number to double over the next two   years. Additionally, Dickinson’s team has developed a landing service for Chinese families/buyers to seamlessly integrate into the San Diego community, schools, and Southern California lifestyle.
