Real Estate and Construction | Ex-Estimator, Current PQS & Realtor at RE/MAX
Ellie has a lot of passions and entrepreneurial spirit since she moved from Korea with her family. In 2006 she studied Architectural Building Engineering at BCIT. Shortly after her graduation, she started working at one of the biggest Design-Build companies in 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. 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. She worked at one of top leading General Contractors (GC) and spent her 2.5 years for Surrey Works Yard project in Surrey, B.C. from pre-construction to post-construction and went onto work at Icon West, a sister company of prominent and luxury developer, Westbank with projects ranging from $50 to $300M. She pursued her Professional Quantity Surveyor title from Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyor and recently transitioned as full time as a realtor since 2016. In her free time she loves golfing, swimming, traveling, hiking, and painting.
