What differentiates Helena Park as a residential specialist is not only the honesty, dedication and integrity with which she conducts business, but the genuine trust and loyalty she inspires in her clients who rely on her for their real estate needs.
A native of Seoul, South Korea, Helena came to the United States to attend college at the University of California Irvine, where she earned her BS degree in Information and Computer Science. She subsequently excelled in the computer field as an information technology manager and software engineer for many years, a career which ultimately brought her to Manhattan in 1989. Fluent in her native Korean as well as in English, Helena enjoys working with both a local clientele as well as overseas customers looking to own a property in this wonderful city.
After raising her two children on the Upper East Side, Helena made the natural transition to real estate. Her successful former profession provided her with an exceptional ability to analyze issues and find appropriate solutions, and to effectively manage projects from beginning to end to attain the best outcome possible. Helena uses these skills and her professional experience to bring buyers, sellers and properties together. She listens carefully to people's needs, utilizes the extensive resources available to her to search for and market homes, and then orchestrates a seamless deal so everyone walks away feeling rewarded.
Helena understands the purchase, renovation and sale of property, having personally undergone the process herself several times. She enjoys helping customers and clients through what can often be a stressful process. Outside of work, Helena stays busy volunteering as a docent at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She loves to go to operas and listen to classical music, participates in several book clubs, and even makes time for the occasional run in Central Park. Having served as an officer in Joint Schools Activities, an association of NYC private schools, she is knowledgeable regarding all aspects of New York City private schools.
