About Jaimie Pepping
Jaimie Pepping was born in Taiwan and boarded her first flight at 3 months old. She spent most of her childhood in six different countries including Indonesia, the Netherlands, Thailand, Singapore, and Hong Kong before settling in the U.S. in 2001. Since an early age, she has highly embraced intercultural connections and prides herself in practicing mindfulness, global awareness, and empathy wherever she goes.
She attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to earn an Agricultural and Biological Engineering degree with a minor in Biomedical Engineering. Supplementing her engineering background with a passion for sustainability, she carried out government-funded R&D projects in solar cell technologies, published energy policy articles for investors and joined a team of civil engineers and architects with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to help build an affordable single-family solar home in China from ground-up.
After a few years of start-up consulting in San Francisco, Jaimie decided to move to Los Angeles in 2017 and landed an opportunity to re-enter the real estate world as a project engineer for Roman James Design Build, one of the biggest real estate development firms in the luxury home market.
One of Jaimie’s assignments was in Bel Air, where her team worked daily onsite with the mission to bring a 14,000 sf home to life. From budget analysis to exterior stone selection, she came to appreciate the delicate balance of creativity, design, and structural integrity throughout an entire construction process.
As assistant to Jason Oppenheim and soon-to-be realtor associate, she leverages her engineering background and home development experience to utilize a unique angle to the business. She enjoys presenting homes to prospective clients through the lens of a developer, which allows for greater transparency on a home’s value.
