You may know REALTOR® member Nedy Lao as a member of PSAR’s Global Real Estate Council (GREC). The GREC provides PSAR members with educational opportunities to enable realtors to expand their practice internationally. Nedy also is currently chairing a committee planning an upcoming e-PRO certification class for GREC and PSAR members. The National Association of REALTORS® e-PRO certificate designates a REALTOR® is proficient in the use of real estate technology, including social media technologies, in creating an online presence and in serving their clients.
But did you know that Nedy has an identical twin sister named Geny. “In kindergarten, we switched identity to play tricks on our teacher,” Nedy said. “One time, Geny’s boyfriend got confused and he started talking so nice to me. My friend next to me told him, `Hey, fella, you’re talking to the wrong person.’”
Nedy grew up in the Philippines and earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Manuel L. Quezon University, her dad’s alma mater. Nedy gave a reason for a real estate career: “If I cannot build buildings or bridges, might as well sell homes.”
She met her husband at a church dance. After their wedding, Nedy and husband Jaime moved to Hawaii where he attended Brigham Young University-Hawaii (BYU-H). They later relocated to Provo, Utah. Today, Jaime teaches math at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts. He also teaches part-time at San Diego City College and the University of Phoenix on-line.
Nedy’s three adult daughters live in Las Vegas, Delaware, and San Diego. “We have four grandsons but no granddaughters yet,” she said. “I stayed home with our children until they were older,” Nedy said. “I’ve always been involved in helping people. So, one day my husband said if I wanted to help more people then I should sell real estate.”
Nedy earned her real estate sales license in 2004. A year ago, she joined Big Block Realty. “I like short sales because I know the people are suffering and I want to help them,” Nedy said. “I want to give them the right information. When we were younger and bought houses, our agents did not tell us the right thing.”
Helping people is a major reason why Nedy enjoys real estate and PSAR. “Everyone in our Association is dedicated to helping people in our community and their clients, we’re here to help others,” she said. “Also, PSAR offers a lot of education and help for the members. It’s like a big family.”
