Malia worked in South Korea as an English teacher before she became an agent.
"When I came back to the U.S., I was unsure of what I wanted to do as a job. I happened to be shown around one of my hometown's real estate offices by a lifelong friend and neighbor who was an agent there. She introduced me to the agents in her office, gave me reading materials, and next thing I knew I was working for a team in the office as a transaction coordinator, which soon turned into a position as a full-time agent. I am now the team leader of the D.C. office for the #1 Keller Williams team in the world."
