In this hurry-up world of real estate sales, it’s comforting and reassuring for clients – be they developer or consumer – to have an agent who works at a thoughtful pace, considering every aspect and all possible ramifications of the deal. Hem-young deFazio, a California Realtor since 1988, is a natural at this approach.

Hem-young feels a deep responsibility to her clients, viewing her service toward them as a lifelong commitment. She enjoys interacting with people from different cultural backgrounds, and excels at finding creative solutions the unique challenges created by their distinctiveness.

Her rare combination of skills and stellar customer service led to her to a partnership with her husband Dominic deFazio at Dominic deFazio & Associates — a local real estate boutique they formed and successfully operated for ten years. After their firm partnered with Podly, Caughey & Doan and was eventually acquired by Coldwell Banker, Hem-young was a consistent member of Coldwell Banker’s International President’s Premiere Group and ranked in the top two percent of agents internationally during her 16 years with the real estate giant.

Hem-young and Dominic continue to be partners in business and life as they bring their dynamic collaboration, The deFazio Experience, to deasy/penner&partners, where they serve as a partners and vital members of the dynamic and creative real estate company.

Client Testimonials

“You can be sure we will recommend you to our family and friends again, as you have shown yourself to be most reliable. Your recommendations on how to stage our home for a quick sale and higher price proved invaluable. We want to say thank you for everything you did before the sale and during the escrow period.” ~ George and Naomi Egami
“In this age of over-promise and under-delivery, you proved again to be dependable professionals. You did exactly what you said and more. I had deadlines to meet, and relocation to another part of the country. My home sold quickly, we received what you said to expect, and in the time frame I needed. It was a pleasure having you as our agents. I will definitely refer colleagues and friends to you.” ~ Robert Campany
“What can we say except thank you? Your commitment to the sale of our home at Mission Meridian Village was remarkable in a down market. You both are passionate and hard working professionals. On top of this, you sold our home for a higher price than we anticipated. My parents were right about you two. With our busy schedule, we could not have done this without your hard work and diligence.” ~ Ronaldo Vasquez, DVM
“Dear Hem-young and Dominic, Just a note to thank you for your outstanding service on selling my home. You helped so very much in many ways – measuring furniture for my new home, outstanding photos for a beautiful brochure, asking Cordelia to help, staging my home well, and taking professional care with all the sale and escrow. Also keeping a record and the photos I will need of goods sold. It was a pleasure to work with you as you were very careful with details! I am happy to tell my friends and I wish you well in your new venture (at deasy/penner&partners.) Wish Dominic could have joined us at the nice luncheon but I am sure he feels better by now. Looking forward to future contact.” ~ Denise Dunston
“It’s always great to know who to rely on when it comes to real estate, and it is refreshing to find professionals as honest as you were with us. We felt you priced our home correctly. And you maintained integrity through our entire time together. Thank you so much for helping us to sell our home. We have referred you to Robert’s parents, who have to sell a home they inherited.” ~ Susie and Robert Egami
“We wanted to say thank you for a job well done. Your professionalism was outstanding. At every stage of the process you took the time to fully explain what was required of us and others in the transaction. We felt totally secure, knowing we were in good hands. We will remember you to our friends and colleagues.” ~ Myung-do Park
