People of CPP: Meet Stephanie Ko and Tammy Garcia

In our new blog series, we’re taking you behind the scenes to meet the amazing agents and staff of Coastal Premier Properties. We hope you’ll follow along as you get to know more about the faces of our great company!

This week we’re talking to Stephanie Ko and Tammy Garcia, Realtors and partners serving the San Diego and Palm Springs areas.


Coastal Premier Properties: First off, tell us about yourself! How did you become partners?

Stephanie and Tammy: We met through a scripting meeting. We were connected through the mentorship group and from then on we started working on open houses together. After a few months of being each others accountability partners we decided to become partners officially! We are currently working on building our team to expand and help other new Realtors entering the business!

CPP: How do you keep each other motivated?

S&T: We have the same short-term and long-term goals and we are always reminding each other of these goals. On top of that, our core values are the same which helps us regroup when we need to and make decisions quickly and efficiently that will help us move down the path towards our goals and what we want out of life overall!

CPP: Which of your skills overlap? In what ways are you different?

S&T: We both have bold, assertive personalities! We are both go-getters and work at the same tempo. Stephanie is very personable and very visual. She can quickly gauge situations and see what would be best for our clients. Tammy is analytical and likes to research data. If you need numbers on anything from comparable sales, how much to put down, or any background data on a property, she is the one to go to! We balance each other out. The great thing is we are learning from each other as we go, which continues to help our business!

CPP: What areas do you work in?

S&T: We began our journey in San Diego with our hub being Carmel Valley as we both were residents of Carmel Valley. We then extended our business to cover all of San Diego as time based on our clients’ needs. Then we saw an opportunity in the desert. We have doubled business by extending out to Palm Springs and the entire desert as many clients in San Diego look for second homes in that area. We have also expanded our business to connect with local businesses and hospitals to help with their employee and student relocations.

CPP: What do you like best about being part of Coastal Premier Properties?

S&T:  Coastal Premier provides great resources for the agents. The company gives us great classes to help us keep updated on what is going on in the industry. There are also wonderful agents that work at CPP! The company is very picky with whom they choose to come in and this creates an environment and culture that is consistent throughout the company. We think the best part has been meeting life-long friends and colleagues who have the same vision of providing our clients with the best service possible by being knowledgable and doing all we can to get them what they need while continuing to educate them. Learning and sharing skills with our colleagues has been so beneficial. This is true no matter what stage of your business you are in. In short, CPP is family!

CPP: Why did you choose real estate as a career path?

S&T: Real Estate is a very unique career. It is something that gives you flexibility in your own life, but once you are in it you realize you work more than than most 9-5ers. So what keeps us going through the long hours is that it is an industry that brings everything we love together. We get joy from helping others, always try to keep up with new trends, and enjoy developing our own business. We also have a love for architecture and interior design and just working with and for people! This is a people industry! Being a part of one of the biggest decisions that people make in finding a home or financial investment is an honor and a blessing to us!

CPP: What are the biggest opportunities facing the industry right now?

S&T:  The biggest opportunity in the industry today is being a listing agent! There are too many buyers compared to sellers at this time! If you are ready to sell this is a great time as most of San Diego and Palm Springs has come out of the down fall of ’08 and money is there to be made!

CPP: How do you enjoy your free time outside of work?

S&T: We both enjoy our free time outside of work with family and friends and we always try to incorporate fitness into our life. Overall, we try to appreciate every moment including the times when business is a bit slower. We also make sure to travel at least once a year to turn our minds off and rest!
