Synopsis: Finding the Pearl: Unstoppable passion, unbridled success is a brightly vivid and motivating portrayal of one woman s courageous perseverance in the face of poverty, war, and immigration. This short, lyric memoir deftly juxtaposes two phases of Thu n Tammy Fadler's life: her childhood amid the firestorm of the Vietnam Conflict and her unlikely journey to personal and professional success.
The frightened young lady arrives in America in 1973 with $10, a single suitcase, and a fifth-grade education. Determined to achieve her dream, she draws on the business acumen she honed as a child hawking fish in the village marketplace to support her large family.
As permeating as the woody scent of steamed rice, the just-do philosophy inherited from her stoic mother molds Tammy s character and seeps through the episodic events of this candid book. Her ambition, passion for learning, and entrepreneurial talents lead Tammy to the pinnacle of success in the field of real estate and, ultimately, the realization of her dream.
Finding the Pearl generously shares Tammy s business practices even as it whispers to all of us that we, too, can face and conquer every adversity with grace and humor.
About the Author: America is known as the land of opportunity. After getting to know Tammy Fadler, clients and others can be thankful that America has the opportunity to experience her thoughtful and caring approach to life. Fadler emigrated from Vietnam to the U.S. in 1973, and has crafted a successful real estate business and positive presence in Festus, Missouri, some 35 miles south of St. Louis. My clients know that I care, says Tammy. The real estate business is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference. We create memories and help families. If you care for people from the heart, it is always returned to you.
Tammy Fadler's origins guide her philosophy to this day. Born in Vietnam and the oldest of 12 children, she worked in food service for the U.S. Army for the six years before the American military pullout in 1973. Without the U.S. presence, security and economic stability were severely compromised; Fadler worried for her family s safety. She left for America with the thought that, if my family is to leave for a better place, I m going to have to make it happen. She worked diligently through the years to raise the money and complete the lengthy paperwork to get 25 of her family members moved to America. She describes her motivation and focus with advice from her father as she left Vietnam: You can go, but I want you to always remember one thing: you can make the money, but never let the money make you.
Tammy Fadler got into real estate as her second major career in America. After working different jobs, she established a Chinese restaurant in 1981 and did well until a fire closed it six years later. Without adequate insurance, Fadler needed another way to earn a living. She chose real estate for its flexibility while she was raising two young children. Tammy was not an instant success, having to conquer inexperience and a language barrier to prove herself. She did so, becoming a top performer with Century 21 and later with the area s first RE/MAX franchise. Fadler then got her broker s license and started her own agency, earning a Diamond #1 Expert Designation in 2006. She astutely enhanced her reputation and image with the company name Talk to Tammy 5 Star Team, working on the premise that, my business has to have a memorable image when people think real estate, I want them to think about me. Even outside her real estate circle, it is rare for anyone in the area including elementary schoolchildren not to recognize Tammy or know her Talk to Tammy media tagline. Today her firm consists of three full-time and two part-time agents, a full-time operations manager and a part time office assistant. Their market is everything residential and some commercial properties in the bedroom communities centered around Festus in Jefferson County.
Tammy Fadler got her first job from the U.S. Army, and her last name as well. She married Dick Fadler, anArmy soldier she met in Vietnam, but the nuptials waited until they reunited in the States. They have two children but are no longer married, though Mr. Fadler is an agent for Tammy s firm. All of Tammy s family lives nearby in Missouri and she loves to spend her spare time with them, especially her grandchildren. Tammy also enjoys ballroom dancing, taking weekly classes and attending dances and pro-am competitions. She is just finishing her memoir, Finding the Pearl Unstoppable Passion, unbridled success.
To Tammy Fadler, business success is just one measure of a person. I m not too big for my image I never forget where I came from, she says. Tammy believes that her reputation is the most important facet of her business and she works hard to make it shine.
