About Stephanie

I am a Korean-American born in Kyoto, Japan and raised in sunny Southern California.  I am bilingual in English and Japanese (although I cannot speak Korean, I love Korean food!)  I spent most of my childhood in Glendale, graduated from UCLA magna cum laude and have been living in the South Bay since 1993.


Before becoming a mother to my wonderful daughter and son, I worked for a non-profit event planning organization, a major luxury cruise line and a global health and nutrition company.  I started up the sales department for the Japan office of the nutrition company and helped it achieve number one sales volume among over 40 other countries’ branch offices.


I bought my first property in my 20’s in Hollywood.  After living in it for a few years, I rented it out before selling it along with another townhouse in Redondo Beach due to a relocation opportunity.  My husband James and I spent several years in Tokyo for his job at a multi-national automobile company.  When we returned to Southern California, we began investing out-of-state and we now own and manage several properties.


We pride ourselves in taking great care of our customers from beginning to end and even after escrow closes.  There are so many different steps and skills necessary to negotiate the complex real estate buying and selling process—but between James and me, we have it all completely covered!  We hope you’ll give Team Maxima the opportunity to serve you!
