Hlee and Xiong are siblings, they grew up in the greater Providence area all their life, they have been in-laws with Kenneth for over 20 years and bonds over bonds were formed through the family dynamic.
Hlee has a passion for architecture. Her experience with event planning and management is what will make you feel at ease with her. Her goal is her ability to represent your best interest though the company. Being raised with a family of 12, Hlee learned from an early age what it was to have a strong work ethic, high morals, and core values, which gave her the courage to go into real estate. Xiong graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree and has always had an inspiration for flipping homes since he was 10 yrs. old. The 1990s TV show “Home Improvement” with Tim Allen and Bob Vila’s “Home Again” was an inspiration for him to be hands-on throughout his childhood and to one day building his dream home. Kenneth came from an entrepreneurial background in numerous business ventures he endeavored over the years. His photography background gave him a different insight on how things should look. Through his experiences, it has inspired him to take on many renovation projects in his own home and pour dedication and vision into other property projects.
After many years diving into different aspects of career, we decided to pool our individual talents and create a business that focuses on doing what we all love most – sharing our commitment to making an impactful difference in the lives of others through real estate! Their life struggles of living in poverty and wanting to help others get out of stressful situations is one of their gifts. For years, all of us dreamed of creating our own real estate business, but didn’t know how it would work. We just knew we had to start somewhere; so we just jumped right in, and decided to make our dream a reality.
As we began to develop the company and carve our niche in the big world of real estate, we quickly realized that there was a distinct need for certain real estate services they originally did not foresee. So we decided to create a set of companies – where in collaboration with one another, they would offer a package of real estate services under one large umbrella, known as “F1rst Shield Property Solutions”.
“We’re highly motivated, knowledgeable, ethical, and qualified to handle any real estate transaction.
We are committed to helping people with their real estate needs and making successful deals happen.“
