With an impressive career leading teams at some of Southern California’s finest luxury boutiques, Esther Ko has the experience it takes to help buyers and sellers with the sale and purchase of high-end real estate across the region.
Working closely with Drew D’Angelo, Hoda Hajirnia and the entire HD Team, Esther is focused on assisting clientele in Mission Viejo, Irvine and Costa Mesa. Growing up in the Los Angeles, Esther knows the area extremely well and can easily guide clients to reach their ultimate real estate dreams across LA’s many dynamic neighborhoods and cities.
Earning her BA in Sociology and Management at the University of California, Irvine, Esther quickly moved up in the world of designer retail. A sales manager and a regional merchandising manager with Nordstrom, she became the assistant general manager at Saks Fifth Avenue in Costa Mesa’s South Coast Plaza. She parlayed that experience into a position as general manager with Hugo Boss, and eventually became the store manager of Louis Vuitton in Costa Mesa.

She is unparalleled at follow-through, exceptionally detail-oriented, and remains in touch with clients long after the close of escrow to ensure that everything is going well with them.
