LÊ HOÀNG NGUYÊN - WINNING AGENCY

Lê Hoàng Nguyên

Principal

Lê Hoàng Nguyên has been a resident of Houston for over 35 years and is a proud product of the Houston Independent School District. He attended Sharpstown Middle School and graduated from Lee High School in 1988.

After earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University in 1993, Nguyên headed to Dallas to work for Texas Instruments, Inc. where he designed Army National Guard training simulators. In 1999, Nguyên was bitten by the entrepreneurship bug and started an internet company that catered to amateur sports organizations.

In 2001, Nguyên and his family moved back home to Houston where he successfully started Winning Agency. His company is committed to providing their clients with professional service and expertise in the areas of insurance, real estate and tax services.

In 2005, Nguyên established the Lê Hoàng Nguyên Scholarship
to provide scholarships to outstanding graduating high school seniors attending college in the upcoming fall semester. The scholarship is administered by the Vietnamese American Scholarship Foundation.

Nguyên is an active supporter of The Vietnamese Culture and Science Association (VCSA) and their annual Youth Leadership Development Camp, Camp Lên Đường. For the past 9 years, he has participated as a camp counselor and has enthusiastically awarded his scholarships to help pay for deserving young professionals to attend the camp.

In the Fall of 2008, Nguyên raised over $6,600 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training program by completing a 100-mile bicycle ride in one day and was a member of the Honolulu Century Bike Ride.

In June of 2010, Nguyên and his 2 sons joined the Sunflower Mission Work Camp to build 4 classrooms in the Province of Phú Yên, Việt Nam. It was his first journey back to Việt Nam in more than 32 years. In addition, he and his family generously donated $7,000 to help build 4 classrooms in the Province of Bình Phước, Việt Nam.

Nguyên is a Farmers Insurance Agent and a Broker/Owner of Winning Real Estate. His professional accreditations include Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), and Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE).

Nguyên and his wife, Yumi, met in high school and have been married for more than 19 years. They now live in Cypress, Texas with their three beautiful children - Ryan, Cooper & Kara.

Carrie Dinh

Office Manager / Licensed Insurance Professional

A native of New Orleans, Carrie graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information System.

Carrie is very family-oriented and is the 7th of 9 children.  Her parents had taught her that life requires hard work, perseverance, and dedication; nothing came for free.  By 2002, she moved to Texas to be closer to her family and start her career.  By the Summer of 2003, Carrie joined our agency and has developed into a key asset of our team.  She brings a tireless work ethic & tremendous dedication.  She currently holds both Life & Health and Property & Casualty insurance licenses.  She now heads up our insurance department.  With her expertise in insurance, she manages, trains, and guides her insurance team.  She has built a fond and memorable relationship with her staff, as well as her customers.  Literally, with the office's motto, "Let us protect your family the way we protect ours", she lives and breathes by it.

Born and raised in New Orleans and matured into adulthood in Houston, Texas, she is an American with Vietnamese roots.  Working here has opened her eyes to understand how much her parents (and many others) have given up when they became refugees.  The day-to-day struggles that she overcomes don't seem par to what they have overcame.  This motivates her.  This drives her.

Carrie and her husband, Young, has known each other since 1998 and have been married for 7 years.  They currently reside in Sugar Land with their  beautiful & sassy daughter, Hailey.
