Stanford Economics B.A.

 

Real Estate Market Knowledge

 

I graduated from Stanford University with bachelor’s degrees in economics and East Asian studies.  My economics major gave me valuable insights into financial systems and real estate market trends. When helping clients, I focus on strategic analyses of local real estate markets and comparative analyses of different properties, both of which become valuable resources for those who seek to maximize their real estate investments.

A little more about me... 

 

I AM:

A grateful daughter, appreciative sister, a proud dog owner. I live with my husband, a fellow Stanfordian and Googler. 

 

Biggest Challenge:

Moving to the United States by myself when I was a freshman in high school.

 

Super Hero Power:

I raised a really cool poodle for 21 years (140 years old in human age!). He was three-months-old when I first met him. Although he passed away in 2013, his memory is still dear to my heart. I believe I have a super power for raising a dog well.

I love many different types of music. My favorite musicians are Ella Fitzerald, Jason Mraz, Sara Bareilles, Bruno Mars, and Michael Jackson.

 

Favorite Architectural Style:

Modern and contemporary. My favorite architects and product designers include Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Philippe Starck.

 

Favorite Quote:

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle." - Steve Job's Commencement Speech at Stanford

 

I heard this Steve Job's speech at my graduation, and it truly stuck with me. It helped me think about what I truly wanted to do with my life as opposed to what society expected from me. It ultimately helped me find the job that I currently do. I do my job because I love it. I wake up every day feeling fortunate and happy that I get to do my job.

 

Now, enough about me.  Tell me about yourself!
