I’m from Korea. I guess I’m a late bloomer…I went to school late… because my 3 years old daughter spoke better English than me. Well, this opened up my vision and believing in education. Time flies...it's been over 40 years since I moved from Korea.
I worked for Dillard’s Department Store immediately after I graduated from Kent State University and managed the Designer & Women’s Dress Department, which required high performance managerial skills. I graduated in Fashion Merchandising with Cum Laude. As you may know, Dillard’s carries high-end goods and therefore we had highly demanding customers as well. What I have learned how to deal with stressful, busy and long work hours that helped me greatly in my future real estate work.
January 1997 when we moved from Ohio to New Hampshire due to my husband’s new job and I needed to find a different challenge. Also, my children were young at that time and needed my attention at home. I entered real estate because it gave me the flexibility of time for my children and gave me a brand new perspective on customer service.
I’m a successful realtor. I started as Rookie of the Year Award and my career took off. I worked hard and developed time management skills, discipline, persistency, driving goals, and a commitment to great customer service.
I also studied further to obtain prestigious designations including CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representation), SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist), New Construction, E-Certification, and Relocation Specialist.
Now, I’m looking back my over twenty some years of in real estate ups and downs but still finding excitements in real estate and I would love to share my experiences with you.
