Stephen Ngo had a successful career going as a trial attorney in Miami, but when he and his wife had their first child, he knew it was time to come home to Martin County. The Palm City native stepped aside from a lucrative, decade-long career at a top national law firm in exchange for a higher quality of life for his family. As an attorney, Stephen aggressively defended the interests of physicians, business and property owners, contractors, celebrities and other high net worth individuals. He brings the same level or energy and high business acumen to his real estate customer base.
Through Stephen’s experience as a lawyer, he honed his keen evaluation and negotiating skills through mediation and settlement of hundreds of lawsuits. This high-pressure, high-stakes experience aids him in being able to understand people’s motivations and ultimate goals, while protecting his customer’s interests. Stephen understands what other professionals go through and the demands on their time. One hour saved in the search of a new home leads to one more hour to be spent with family or enjoying precious free time.
Stephen’s philosophy is to deliver a concierge-level of service: No request is too mundane, no request is too extravagant. This prime objective has translated to consistent satisfaction for his real estate customers. It gives Stephen great professional and personal pride to be able to assist people in achieving their real estate goals.
Stephen’s roots in the Treasure Coast run deep. As a child, he attended Palm City Elementary School. He graduated from the St. Edwards School in Vero Beach, and remains highly active in alumni and development activities for the school. Stephen’s parents still reside in the same Martin Downs Crane Creek home they built in 1982. His father and brother are prominent physicians with Martin Health System.
He experienced New England winters while completing his undergraduate work at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn., where he rowed crew and played lacrosse on the NCAA nationally-ranked men’s team. He returned to South Florida to attend the University of Miami School of Law, graduating with honors.
In his free time, there is nothing that Stephen enjoys more than spending time with his son and wife. He also enjoys tennis, golf, world travel, live music, water sports, and rabidly following Miami’s sports teams. A triathlete, Stephen frequently swims, bikes, and runs Stuart’s wide waters and roads.
