Tou Lee Yang was born in a refugee camp in Thailand while his family was fleeing a war-torn Laos after the Vietnam War. Due to his family and tribe’s involvement with assisting the CIA during the war, they had to make that perilous journey across the border from Laos over to Thailand. After being granted political asylum into the United States, he spent the majority of his childhood in the Kansas City area.
During a very brief stint at Central Missouri State University, he quickly realized that collegiate athletics and the Fighting Mules football program wasn’t for him. His next move was to the Twin Cities in the Minneapolis area and partnered up with friends to start a video & live events production company in 1999. He has shared the stage with many musical entertainers in various genres from the world of EDM, country, gospel, rap/hip-hop, to alternative & rock music.
In the spring of 2009, Tou Lee made his journey to the beautiful sunny beaches of Pinellas County in Florida. Tou Lee has been privately buying & selling real estate for himself and family members for over 10 years. It wasn't until 2016 that he finally decided to get a license so he could start helping more than just his own family. He considers all his clients his new family members now.
Tou Lee currently holds certifications & designations as a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), e-PRO, Sellers Representative Specialist (SRS), Military Relocation Professional (MRP), New Home Co-Broker (NHCB), Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA), Real Estate Negotiating Expert (RENE) and he's also a Certified Insurance Adjuster.
