Ellie has a lot of passions and entrepreneurial spirit since she moved from Korea with her family.
Ever since she was young, she wanted to become an architect. She loved creative drawings, arts and architecture. She was influenced and motivated by her father who was an architect and developer. She studied Architectural Building Engineering at BCIT. Shortly after her graduation, she started working at one of the biggest Design-Build companies in the Western Canada, Omicron, as an estimator. That's when she met and learned through engineers from various disciplines, architects, government/municipality officers, multiple retail entities, subcontractors and developers. That's also when she started building her foundation of negotiating. Writing good contract in detail, having good relationships with people and happy negotiation were her three successful keys. She then decided to continue her studying, Construction Management, while continuing her career journey. She also volunteered for VANOC at the same time as a communication crew.
Once she finished her degree, she was thirsty for actual field experience. Not just from historical data, books, theories, documents and occasional site visits for her $500K to $60M projects. So, she jumped onto different ship. She worked at one of top leading General Contractors(GC), Graham, and spent her 2.5years for Surrey Works Yard project in Surrey B.C from preconstruction to post construction. That's also when she met her love of life. :)
She didn't stop. She was always interested in real estate and development. So she decided to join this GC, which is a sister company of prominent & luxury developer in BC, Icon. She loved all her endless possibilities from her projects and challenges from the unique designs. Her projects were CDN $50M to US $300M excluding land and soft costs. She pursued her Professional Quantity Surveyor title from Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyor. That's what PQS stands for after her name if you're wondering. She couldn't stop. She become a realtor since 2016 and is a full time realtor now.
Her knowledge and experience in preconstruction and construction have been assisting her buyers and sellers. Not to mention her connections in various fields are one of the other assets working with Ellie. She loves golfing, swimming, travelling, hiking and painting. With her enthusiastic personality and detail oriented style will provide great & satisfying experience with your real estate needs.
