Mrs. Wong is a CPA and currently works as a controller for NetCo Investments, Inc. handling all financial matters for each property and the company.
Mrs. Wong’s career started as an auditor for KPMG primarily focused on real estate clients and from there worked as an assistant controller for Phoenix Property Company. At Phoenix Property Company, where she spent over 9 years of her career, she worked on many acquisitions and dispositions and primarily was involved in the accounting of the operations of multi-family and mixed-use projects. Notably one of the more renowned projects she worked on was West Village in the Dallas Uptown area. During her time at Phoenix Property, she had the opportunity to work with and learn from many prominent real estate moguls in the DFW area. This opportunity enabled her to build on those relationships and find new opportunities as she began working on a contract basis in 2010 after her third son was born. In 2010 she began working at Henry S. Miller Interests, Inc. and continued with them for the next 6 years. She was a controller for the family’s business and as her time with them continued assisted with not only accounting functions but also property management and office management functions as well as she helped the family wind down this company. As she was winding down Henry S. Miller Interests, Inc., Mrs. Wong engaged in new opportunities and began working as a controller for Lakeside DFW on a 155-acre mixed-use development in Flower Mound, TX developed by Peter Stewart and family and Realty Capital Management. During this time is also when she joined the NetCo team.
