About Irina Hill
Irina discovered her passion for real estate after trying on different career hats. She started with a Master’s degree in Linguistics, but a linguist career did not feel right. She transitioned into finance, obtained her MBA in finance from Pepperdine, and earned a CPA designation. But a career in finance was missing human interaction. On her quest of helping people Irina became certified in Pilates and nutrition. But this turn did not make the cut. During all that time, she has been “flipping” houses for fun and profit.
One day, when she was window-shopping for properties on Trulia.com in her CPA office, she realized that she was passionate about real estate. By the time she was 30, she had bought and sold more properties than most people would in a lifetime. She loves shopping for houses. To her, new trends in kitchen décor are more exciting than the latest celebrity gossip. And for sure, new developments in real estate are more exciting than new tax laws.
