"I believe choosing a real estate agent is an important and personal decision. The information below provides you some insights of what I am like as an individual and what my qualifications are to handle your home sale or purchase. It gives you the information from which to make a knowledgeable decision."
I am the founder and broker of my company - 3:16 team REALTY, a real estate brokerage specializing in residential home sales in the greater Frisco TX areas.
My goal is to help you achieve a successful real estate transaction based on your needs and wants while providing honest advice on getting best price for it.
My extensive real estate sales experience begins with serving first time home buyers, buyers, sellers, sellers with financial hardship, buyers relocating to the greater Frisco TX areas and luxury home buyer & seller markets. My company intentionally keeps our geographic areas in which we operate small because we believe that it is the only way to continuously stay on top of our local housing markets.
I am a highly-organized, highly-motivated individual with a positive outlook in business and life. Coming from an engineering background, I work well in a structured environment but I am willing to adapt and stretch beyond my comfort zone, if needed.
Born and raised in Malaysia, I truly appreciate the opportunity to start a new life here in America with my husband over 14 years ago. I believe that opportunity is abundant for those who are willing to work hard and become a contributor to our local community. Before I entered real estate sales in 2003, I was a structural engineer in my corporate America days. So, details and its nitty-gritty matter to me. I pay extraordinary attention and focus to the accuracy of real estate contracts, effective home marketing plans and pride on my extensive market knowledge by keeping the geographical areas I work in manageable. I do not work all over the Dallas metroplex because I believe that it is not a feasible way to thoroughly understand the local market areas. If you are an analytical person yourself, I speak your language. If you are a free-spirit who knows that these things are not to be taken lightly but you do not want to get involved with too much details, let my strengths work for you.
Most detail-oriented people lack the personal and human touch. They get too bogged down with details and they forget the world around them. I find myself with a unique blend of personalities where I am extremely sharing and understanding of people’s emotions and feelings as well as having the ability to bring my clients through a very emotional process in their lives.
I have been called the Voice of Reason by my clients. Looking for real estate can be a stressful and emotional season in your life. With wisdom and experience, we can navigate these unchartered territories together.
I am happily married to my best friend, Michael. We met in college, at the University of Oklahoma. Both Michael and I immigrated from Malaysia but had never met prior to school. It took us half a world around to meet. In early 2010, we became American citizens - a dream which took over 20 years to fulfill.
Today, we are blessed with an active (almost) three-year old. Being a mother of an energetic child turned my world upside down but I am constantly adapting to my new lifestyle. I love motherhood and all its challenges it has to offer. Where there are challenges, there also lie opportunities to grow and discover. God and family come first above all else and my career is a blessing to honor God in my daily activities. With a bold conviction of putting faith first and center in not only my personal life and business life as well, I use a holistic approach to everything I do in business and in life.
I am always planning for the future and want to have emotional and financial securities for the future instead of gratification in the present moment. Hard work and focus are what I operate on daily and I believe that there are no shortcuts in success.
I am a quiet, introverted, pleasant person who has been thrust into an ever-changing, extroverted sales business where I found the balance to fit in within this business. What may seem lacking in the ‘selling’ area makes up in the ‘knowledge of the market’ area.
I love to give and enrich the lives of those I meet. I might never know how but I always let the opportunity arise by itself.
DESIGNATIONS and EDUCATION
I am extremely passionate about learning and sharing…and my website is a reflection of that. As a realtor(R) who spends time, energy and effort in learning how to excel for my clients, I focus on educating myself, thus acquiring important real estate designations along the way. While the designations and acronyms may not mean much to consumers, nevertheless it sets one apart from another who may not put as much importance on education and certifications.

As a Broker of 3:16 team REALTY, I manage the daily operations of the brokerage firm. When you do business with a Texas Real Estate broker, you work with someone who has more education and knowledge about the real estate business.
CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) Candidate
Less than 4% of licensed Realtors are Certified Residential Specialists. In order to qualify for this professional designation, a Realtor must bring significant real estate experience, demonstrates volume in real estate transaction as well as completes rigorous educational requirements. I met the production requirements, however I am awaiting to complete my educational portion of this designation. I am set to complete them by 1st Quarter 2010.
ASP (Accredited Staging Professional Realtor(R))Earning the ASP or Accredited Staging Professional designation has provided me with the advanced marketing knowledge required to sell homes faster, and for more money in today's competitive marketplace. As a part of the benefits in selecting me on your team, I am qualified to provide professional home staging advice and recommendations in order to get your home sold as part of my Systematic Home Marketing Approach.
ALHS (Accredited Luxury Home Specialist)

SFR (Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource)
As a Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource Realtor(R), I have pledge to work with distressed Sellers to help them navigate the uncertain areas of short sales or pre-foreclosures, negotiate with lenders for an approval and setting the expectations for buyers and sellers during this process. Emotions are running high in this stage. You do not have to go through this alone.
Ultimately, building relationships and uncommon bonds are what most significant in my heart. People matter to me. I am the catalyst to enrich the quality of lives I serve. A home does bring emotional, financial as well as spiritual benefits. It’s serious stuff. I want my presence to leave significance in your real estate transaction.

10 out of 10
If I were asked to rate you by someone, I would give you a 10 out of 10. When I first met you back in early November I was desperate to find someone who I could trust and who had experience with Short Sales. I immediately knew you were the one to take me through my journey. You were accountable for all the things you said you would do. You contacted me only when necessary and used your best judgment for all other issues. Although I was financially strapped you came up with great solutions to keep my utility services on throughout the selling process. And, lastly you sold my home just in time for me to avoid a foreclosure. I was truly blessed to have you as my Realtor. Thank you again for carrying me through this journey.
Have a great day. Tonya Haley
Made us feel we were the only clients
"Loreena is the best!!! My husband and I found her when we were starting our search for our first house and Nam & Agness Nguyen - Satisfied Clients of Loreena Yeo & 3:16 team REALTY religiously checking out houses. We saw her website and looked at how many people have been really pleased working with her. We knew immediately that we wanted to work with her. After searching for a while, we didn't like any of the existing houses that we see (because we are very picky!). So, we decided to get a new house built from scratch instead. We didn't know that we could have a realtor to help us out purchasing a new house. It was the best thing ever happened since we are first-time buyers. Loreena was there all along during the timely process. She patiently gave us advice on considering the good and the bad on every property, answering our never-ending questions, and she even bargained for bonuses with the seller!!! We got a hefty lump for interior upgrades and a free premium land with a greenbelt because of her help. One of the reasons why I have recommended her for buying and selling is because she always made us feel like we were her only clients. She worked tirelessly on our behalf to help us find the perfect house. I highly recommend the 3:16 team REALTY to anyone looking to buy or sell! Thanks Loreena, we love our house!"

Home sold in TWO WEEKS!!!
Excellence. That is one of the first words that comes to mind when I think of Loreena Yeo of 3:16 Team Realty. We have bought and sold a number of houses, but we have never had a realtor that did such an amazing job. She presented us with a marketing plan to sell our home at our first meeting. We were very impressed with her utilizing modern technology - advertising our home on many different online sites. She also had spot on information on how to price our home to sell. One of my favorite things she did was a dedicated domain just for our home address. On the website, the photographs were just beautiful, of which she was the photographer. The whole site was so attractive and had all the information that anyone would want to know about the house and the area-which is such a helpful thing whether you live in the area or coming from out-of-town. A video of the house was also on You Tube and filmed in a way that you could see how all the rooms connected, so much better than just doing a virtual tour. Loreena put a sign in the yard that had a number you could text that would link you to our home information website. Communication was great. She contacted us and kept us up to date constantly. We had agreed that we would "text" as both us of liked that way of communicating, if there was something quick to say. Otherwise she would call and give us a detailed update. We got an offer in a matter of days and also a second offer. Loreena was excellent in helping us through the negotiations and the home was sold in two weeks. Excellence. We feel like we had the best. Loreena is a true professional. Our experience could not have been better.
