MEET LING JACKSON
A graduate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and proud member of the Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority, I started my career as a high school math teacher, and later moved into sales.
I’m a Alabama and Hawaii licensed realtor at eXp international, one of the fastest growing national real estate firms with agents in 47 U.S. States and 2 Canadian Provinces. Agents at eXp receive outstanding training and support that enables us to collaborate and learn from industry professionals with years of experience and diverse areas of expertise.
I am proud Military spouse, serving as my husband’s volunteer unit Ombudsman. I know personally how stressful PCS moves can be and strive to serve you and make your move as seamless as possible. I also sit on the board for the Joint Spouses Conference and enjoy volunteering at the USO. I am also a member of the Honolulu Chinese Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Honolulu Chinatown Lion’s Club.
REAL ESTATE EXPERIENCE
I have been involved in real estate in some form or another since 2012—the year I became a home owner. My husband and I would later become landlords renting our first house while purchasing another. I’m now a professional realtor, but still vividly remember what being a first-time home buyer felt like—It was scary! For most, purchasing a home is the single largest purchase of their lifetime and demonstrates a huge long-term financial commitment, which can be very intimidating and emotional for some.
WHY I AM DIFFERENT
As a former educator, I understand knowledge is power. Buying a home in any market is can be scary but can come with many rewards including more independence, privacy, increases inequity and home value. It can also be a great way to build and leave behind a legacy for one’s family. Despite these benefits, many hold off on buying a home out of fear of the unknown. I aim to serve you as your realtor but also provide you an education on the benefits of buying as well as provide information on local market trends. By keeping you informed and arming you with information, you can make the home buying decision that is best for you. I will merely be your guide through the process, helping each step of the way and providing all the answers you need.
If you are selling your home, no one will work harder for you! I come from a family of Chinese immigrants and grew up working in their small business. I know the importance of hard work and customer service! Whether you are a first time home buyer, investor, military service member, or just looking for a hard working realtor, I will serve you as if you were family.
