Kumiko loves to help and serve people. She was born in Japan, raised and educated in Tokyo with BA from Meiji Gakuin University. After completing her MA in English at Marquette University, she went back to Japan and started her career as a teacher at her alma mater language school in Tokyo, the JACI, where she met her future husband. They had two children in Japan. In 1983 her husband’s work brought her and her family to New York and they found a home in Irvington-on-Hudson. She has been living in the village since, downsizing and moving in 1999 to Hudson House, one of the premiere residential buildings designed by the Empire State Building architects. She loves her building. Her most important values are honesty, integrity, loyalty, and respect. She cannot live or conduct her business without them. She has been a successful realtor since 1986, mostly serving the rivertowns community. Her business mainly comes from referrals and repeats from her old clients and the word of mouth.
She is a member of Westchester Real Estate, Inc., HGAR (Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors), NYSAR (New York State Association of Realtors), and NAR (National Association of Realtors). She was a founder and principal broker of Hudson Realtors in Irvington-on-Hudson.
Kumiko loves tennis, art, and dogs. Her son’s pitbull turned her into a dog person years ago.
She is a signature member of Pastel Society of America. She currently serves on the board of directors of the MJM (Metropolitan Japanese Ministry). Former board director of Hudson House. Former vestry member of the Church of St. Barnabas, Irvington-on-Hudson.
