As a sophomore in college, I was asked to tutor a high school student who was struggling in her English class. Two months later, she became the top English student in her school and was accepted into her dream university in Beijing two years later. This experience made me realize that I could change someone else's life through my knowledge and passion.
I received my graduate degrees from the Pushkin Language Institute in Moscow and the Linguistic Department of Kyoto University in Japan. I’ve taught Chinese in private institutions in Korea and Japan, as well as public universities employed by UNC Chapel Hill and NC State University. I speak Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Russian and understand the importance and comfort of being able to effectively communicate in your native language.
After more than twenty years of my life poured into learning, researching and teaching, however, I decided to make a career change to real estate, inspired by my father’s efforts to build and find a perfect home for our family.
I can still vividly remember the backyard of our first childhood home: grape vine covering the windows peeking light into the house, with the crabapple tree standing firm in the center of the garden. When expanding the house into the garden, my father connected the old and new part with a corridor letting in skylight, going as far as to paint our favorite image of the garden onto a mural on the wall. He has introduced seven additional homes to our family since then; I witnessed his best efforts for every single home.
I am very proud to have become a Real Estate broker to help people find their best homes. My family and I made the Raleigh area our home more than ten years ago and are very happy that we did. I look forward to helping you find your best home here as well!

Melody took me and my wife all over the Raleigh area to find the perfect house for me, my wife and two children. She had access to all the information needed to find the right location and was prompt and responsive for the weekend we came down to find a place from NY. I height recommend her and would refere her to friends in the future.
