Tina Marie Phan grew up in upstate New York where her appreciation for the arts, architecture and building community began in her family’s ancestral home—the Oneida Mansion House, site of the first utopian society in America, as well as that of the Oneida silverware company. This home housed her great grandfather, Kenneth Hayes Miller’s paintings, dozens of which have sold at auction with Sotheby’s. In her career as a real estate agent, it is clear that her story and experience have come full circle.
Having traveled worldwide and living in London, she eventually settled in Los Angeles and obtained her BA in Theatre at UCLA. Following this path eventually led her to USD where she earned an MA in Counseling and graduated summa cum laude. This was her entry into the non-profit sector and philanthropy where she has served as an active board member with The Humane Society, Santa Cruz Ethnic Arts Network, a counselor for All About Kids and currently on the board of CITYstage.
Tina Marie is known for her incredible way with people, whether that is through devoted advocacy or building rapport and collaboration with executives at National Geographic, Sundance and Neiman Marcus. From fashion showroom floors to commercial advertising, she is a seasoned negotiator and loves the thrill of “the close.” But it was in her brief foray into home staging through which she discovered joy and fulfillment in helping clients create a space that speaks to them.
Her love of architecture and high-end home decor combined with a passion for people and business has evolved into a dynamic career in real estate. With a proven history of forging outstanding personal relationships and helping people realize their dreams, Tina Marie creates a positive and results driven home buying and selling experience for her clients.
Tina Marie lives with her husband and son where she keeps the house warm as an avid cook and baker. In between cuddles with son Jaxon, she enjoys walking her rescue pup and doting on her massive Maine Coon cat. Her favorite day of the week is Wednesday when she and her husband, Peter, steal away for hip-hop class.
