Congratulations to Ying He! She is celebrating her 2-year anniversary with Zephyr Real Estate this September and is based at our West Portal office.

Ying He has found a treasured niche in the Bay Area real estate, thanks to her personal journey through life. She spent her younger years in China and is a native Mandarin speaker. Having lived on two continents and in half a dozen cities, Ying is well aware of the challenges faced by transplants, especially families with children. Her client base is dense with overseas clients, reflecting one of her goals to help families with this life-changing transition. With a background as Head of Financial Planning for a billion-dollar manufacturing company, she has fine-tuned impeccable skills when it comes to connecting well with professionals. Her extensive experience analyzing data for management decisions has strengthened her in guiding clients in making one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives.

When catching up with Ying about her Zephyr anniversary, she shared some inside information to get to know her a little bit better.

1. What neighborhood do you live in and why? How long have you lived there and what do you love best about it?

“I have lived in Golden Gate Heights for over five years now.  I love the wide streets, detached homes, and dramatic ocean views.  There is also the 16th Ave. tiled steps, great for tourists and locals alike.”

2. What do you love to do in your spare time? Do you have a favorite place to hang out?

“I love to spend time with my family and friends in my spare time. We hike at Land’s End, the Presidio, and Ocean Beach. There is no greater view than the one at Cliff House. We also enjoy sitting in the garden of Beach Chalet where kids can climb trees and adults can chill. I also love yoga, reading and traveling. And I have recently accomplished one of the things in my bucket list: attending a yoga retreat in the Himalayas.”

3. What do you think is the most important room in the house that clients focus on when buying and why?

I don’t think any single room is more important than others.   I am a firm believer of Feng Shui, and so are many of my Chinese clients. I believe the flow of “Chi”, or energy, is the most important consideration when evaluating a home.”
