Hot Factor: While many new-home builders are failing, Daisy Tran has led the sales effort at Irvine Pacific, overseeing some 1,500 new homes built in its Pacific Home division.
Last year Daisy Tran was working for a San Diego County-based homebuilder that had a partnership with the Irvine Co. Her bosses told her that she should take extra care to make sure she kept the Irvine Co. happy. She certainly did, she notes with a laugh: They were so happy, they hired her. Since then, Tran has been responsible for overseeing some 1,500 homes built in its Pacific Homes division, all while many other developers have failed to build anything. But Tran says the success comes because, well, it’s the Irvine Co.
“It’s like being at Harvard,” she says. “We have such a tremendous team of quality people here.”
