I joined Coldwell Banker in 2015 after working in the technology and telecommunications sectors for more than two decades. I was the co-founder and CEO of Froomz.com, an online marketplace for event and meeting venues. Prior to the startup world, I held management positions at ATT as well as other entrepreneurial and finance roles. I was born and raised in Beijing China and have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1997. My family and I fell in love with the Lamorinda area and moved to Orinda in 2012.
My experience as an entrepreneur has helped me develop a variety of skills which will serve my customers well as we navigate the home buying process together.
My deep roots in the technology and investor communities have familiarized me with the understanding of the major forces driving the Bay Area economy and real estate markets. Building and operating a technology startup company taught me to leverage social media and the use of the Internet to market, research and analyze properties. My deep finance background enables me to rapidly model real estate investment scenarios and advise my clients.
I hold a MBA in International Finance from University of South Carolina and a BS in Electrical Engineering from Beijing University of Technology.
Real estate to me is ultimately about people and relationship. I love meeting and getting to know people from all backgrounds and all disciplines. I believe that any successful transaction is always the one that creates a win-win situation for all sides. My long time contract negotiation experience and global perspective harmonize well with my role as a trusted advisor to my clients.
I'm a firm believer in giving back. I served on the Board of Directors at CALICOcenter.org, a child advocacy center that achieves justice and healing for abused children. I am also actively involved in community events that benefit the local schools and businesses.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring different cultures and flavors, around the world and in my own kitchen. I am a big fan of piano and Latin dance.
