Known for her integrity, loyalty and professionalism, Alina comes to the real estate market in Austin, Texas, with a concentration on the luxury market. Alina has a Bachelor Degree in International Economics, as well as an Master Business Administration, and is trilingual in Korean, Russian, and English.
She began her international career in South Korea, where she lived over 10 years, as a business executive specializing in research and development, bulk sale, and profit operations between South Korea, Kazakhstan and Russia. Alina was an integral part in establishing sales territories for private entities which resulted in new trade offices promoting trade within targeted countries. This initiated the start of building professional relationships between buyers, private businesses, government agencies, and foreign clientele.
While living in Thailand over 3 years, Alina was fortunate to have held positions where she was able to assist government and non- profit organizations, igniting her desire to help people wherever she could. This led to working with the US Embassy and International Rescue Committee developing programs for special caseload refugees in the United States, for better quality of life. Alina was strategic in assisting the logistic liaison using diplomacy and professional negotiations between caseload refugees and all caseworkers involved with U.S. Resettlement, based on Homeland Security criteria and standards. While this experience helped many refugees, it also required Alina to handle highly confidential information with professional personnel.
Alina also acted as liaison between the Asian Forum Parliamentarians on Population and Development (AFPPD) and Central Asian Parliaments, and related parties. She organized and coordinated the conference “The Asian Consultation on the prevention of HIV related to Drug Use” which was held in Goa, Indi. Logistics such as lodging and travel accommodations with Parliamentarians of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan were all handled with the white glove touch by Alina. She also worked with the host country to provide additional information, such as conference plan, agenda, guest invitations, e.t.c. to organize the conference “Role and Contribution of Women in the Development of Society” in Dushanbe, Tajikistan in 2008.
Involvement in such professional, political, and delicate matters has allowed Alina to fine tune her skills as a Real Estate Professional by giving her an edge in the luxury market thus distinguishing her among colleagues and clients.
