It is often said that we are the culmination of our life experiences, and Lindsey Phuon is an exceptional example of this. Coming from humble beginnings, Lindsey had the chance to gain experience and wisdom beyond her years. Her parents were fortunate to escape the instability and severe dangers of Cambodia for the opportunity to live in the United States, and they worked hard amidst the headwinds of starting over again in a new country while learning a new language. They persevered and achieved the American dream, buying a home and settling in San Ramon, California, where Lindsey was born and raised. From a young age, Lindsey understood that owning real estate can provide financial freedom and satisfaction, and knew she was destined to become a Realtor®.

In her parent’s donut shop, Lindsey learned the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and the perseverance necessary to be a successful Realtor®. She also perfected the arts of self-discipline and consistency during her 12-year career as a competitive figure skater, waking before dawn every day to practice while most people were sleeping. Lindsey now uses these traits to serve her clients, and she lives by her ethics, drive, and determination. Lindsey studied at the University of California at Davis and achieved a Bachelor of Science in communications with a minor in technology management. Shortly after graduating, Lindsey became a licensed real estate agent and joined Portfolio Real Estate’s elite team. Lindsey specializes in helping first-time homebuyers and also has experience finding clients their dream homes in more rural areas.
