I was born and raised in Indonesia before moving to Singapore when I was 17 years old. I grew up on a small island, so I was eager to explore a big city. Plus, I wanted to learn Chinese and English. I went to school there and received a high school level education in computer programming. After that, my next move was to San Francisco’s city college. My parents were 100% against it at first. I convinced them it would be beneficial for me to go and eventually got their blessing. After graduating from City College, I went on to Chico State and got my computer science degree. My first job out of college was in the Silicon Valley as an engineer until I was unexpectedly laid off in 2001. My husband and I weren’t sure what we would do to replace my income. Since I had just had our first baby the year before, I needed a career that would provide my family with freedom and flexibility. I received my real estate license in 2001 and have never looked back. The first few years were difficult, but I persevered and am now excelling in my field. I look forward to serving each of my clients in all their real estate needs.
