Hyounsoo's father was a first-generation real estate broker in Korea, and she puts into practice the lessons he taught her in childhood: positive energy and a helping heart make all the difference. She became an agent to help a friend in need, and she has never forgotten the thrill of her first successful sale. Since then, she's dedicated herself to helping clients – whether selling or buying a house, she's with them every step of the way. But her can-do attitude is far outshined by her tireless dedication and problem-solving abilities; in the face of challenges, she's known for saying, "There is always another way."

Surrounding herself with a chorus of professionals, Hyounsoo's clients benefit from her amazing team, who ensure a beautifully staged home all the way through the final touches. She takes the wheel on the listing from start to finish, and she rounds out her strategy with the unbeatable marketing power of the Coldwell Banker® brand. She provides a detailed checklist for sellers and buyers, which keeps everyone on track and on target throughout the transaction. And when it's time to close the deal, Hyounsoo leverages her powerful negotiation tactics – perfected from growing up in Seoul, Korea, where negotiating price was a daily occurrence.
A lifelong learner who always strives to explore "what's next," downtime is spent with her husband at King of Kings Woodbury Lutheran church, where they both lend their voices in song, and with her rescue fur babies, two dogs and three cats. Fluent in Korean and English, Hyounsoo can also perform in a variety of other languages.
An ancient proverb says, "Those who wish to sing always find a song," and Hyounsoo believes the same holds true for finding a home. Reach out to her today to begin your new real estate adventure.
