Sales Associate



I love living and working in the Verde Valley area where I enjoy being close to nature, surrounded by good neighbors and friends. As a person who naturally shares my experiences to help others, nothing thrills me more than seeing a big, bright smile bloom upon my client's face when we have completed a transaction to their greatest satisfaction.

A brief glimpse into my background: I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. I majored in International Trading with a Bachelor of Economics and Business Administration. Working for one of the top trading companies in Korea provided many opportunities to work overseas with buyers, factories, and vendors from both the east and west. It was in this position that I garnered my fair, but firm, negotiation skills and solid work ethic.

I first visited Sedona in the year 2000 and was so touched by the beauty and the community that it peaked my interest in health and mindful living. Deciding to make a change and settle in this majestic town in 2004, I transitioned to managing a camping facility, a retail store, a cafe, and also was involved in construction and remodeling. Being involved with the various Real Estate development projects and people around town brought such a new dimension knowledge to me that decided to learn every aspect of the industry and become a REALTOR® in 2012. Currently, I work for Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty and have had the pleasure of developing many strong relationships working in construction and development over the years in Sedona, Village of Oak Creek & Cottonwood. I continue to be engaged in tracking with the residential market in my Sedona office, while enjoying life on a beautiful ranch in Camp Verde, with seven horses, four dogs, and six chickens.

It will be my great honor to serve you, doing my very best to fulfill your Real Estate needs with both responsibility and spirit of service, as I facilitate a smooth transition for this most important transaction in your life.
