First and foremost, I am a proud, native San Franciscan. Having lived here all of my life, I can attest to the beauty and allure that the city has to offer. From the culturally diverse micro neighborhoods to the geographically diverse surrounding counties, there is no shortage of reasons why the Bay Area is a top destination. The real estate roots run deep in my family as I learned the trade from my mother who worked relentlessly for her clients for over 30 years. I graduated from UC Davis where I received my B.A. in Communications. I began my real estate career in 2010 with Coldwell Banker at the same office I worked in as an assistant in high school. Prior to joining Compass in 2018, I was part of Coldwell Banker's International President's Elite which ranked me in the top 1% of Coldwell Banker agents internationally. In my first full year at Compass, I was honored to be included in Wall Street Journal/Real Trends America's Best real estate professionals list. I've been blessed to have built my entire business solely on repeat clients and referrals. As a trusted advisor, I am here to listen to your needs and devise a strategic plan to attain those goals while looking out for your best interests. My clients always come first and deserve the utmost professionalism, integrity, timeliness, availability and accountability from me in everything I do. Going above and beyond expectations is what I strive to attain and building on personal relationships is at the heart of my business. If there's anything else you would like to know about me, please don't hesitate to reach out.
I am always available 24/7.
★★★★★"Excellent! I've worked with a lot of Realtors and Calvin is by far the best one. He's offered his time and plethora of idea's even after the transaction has been completed. I look forward to working with Calvin and will always refer him." - Anil S.
★★★★★"Calvin was AMAZING! Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable, but he is consistently proactive and manages to stay on top of everything all the while having your best interests in mind. Certain agents we've worked with in the past can sometimes feel 'sales-sy' or pushy, but Calvin felt like a true partner through the process. I cannot recommend him enough!" - Jeffrey C. and Xindi X.
★★★★★"We came to Calvin with a very difficult task of helping us find a new home in Millbrae-Burlingame area and sell our then current home in Daly City which he helped us purchase as well. Ultimately, with Calvin's analysis and negotiation of the offers, we accepted the strongest one that became the highest-priced single family house sold in Daly City and with a buyer who closed the deal within 2 weeks! I practically did not have to divert any attention from my work life while completing these multiple deals, because Calvin always knew the next steps
and took care of them for me. It was very easy to trust him to excel in all parts of transaction. We really could not have done it without him." - Lamar Z. and Jennifer G.
★★★★★"When I decided to place my property for sale in San Francisco, I was referred to Calvin and I am so glad I chose him as my real estate agent. My situation is a little unique as I live in New York City, but was selling a condo in San Francisco. He made my property a priority immediately. Calvin took care of all of the preparation of the unit itself. I am very pleased with Calvin and his expertise. This entire process has been stress free and quick, with great results. I would recommend him to anyone who is considering listing their property for sale." - Chandni S.
★★★★★"Calvin was an excellent agent who guided me through the entire home- buying process and successfully helped me close the unit where I am living today. He was always available on call whenever I had any questions about a new open house or when I wanted to learn about the general real estate market. He was also incredibly detail-oriented and never dropped the ball on reminding me of any impending deadlines.I was so satisfied with my experience working with Calvin that I referred him to two personal friends and he was able to work with them to help close properties for them as well. Calvin is the best in the industry and I would highly recommend anyone to work with him" - Kevin L.
★★★★★"Calvin is incredible! As first time homebuyers we were all over the place. Calvin was patient, persistent, and so professional and because of him we were able to purchase a perfect spot with a perfect view. We have absolutely no regrets. Lastly, knowing that Calvin was a San Francisco native, like myself, was icing on the cake. His expert knowledge of Bay Area real estate made us instantly trust him. We cannot recommend Calvin enough." - Saam E. & Joanna L.

" We happen to know that Calvin was working at least 3 or 4 other
transactions in parallel to ours, and you'd never know it. He was right
there with us every step of the way! We whole heartedly endorse
Calvin whether you're on the buy side or sell side of a transaction. His
record speaks for itself. We've worked with other agents in the past,
but after working with Calvin, we cannot imagine working with anyone
else ever again."
- Shayna K. and Sandeep S.
"It's clear why Calvin has received as many accolades as he has,
and absolutely clear to me why my friend recommended him to
me. There was never a phone call, text, or email that wasn't
returned promptly and thoughtfully. Calvin doesn't look at his
work and his business on a transaction by transaction basis but
takes a longer term relationship view when it comes to his
clients. My positive experience working with Calvin is the
reason why I'm writing this letter and is why I've already
started referring him to friends of mine.

"Calvin Kam is one of those rare gems who still believes in the personal touch when doing business, and pays attention to the small interpersonal details as well as the big picture. At no point did we feel unnecessarily rushed or pressured, instead, Calvin was a consistent and generous presence in our lives. (He brought us pastries to our final signing, for goodness sake, and brought us dinner after we'd moved in!) It's clear that Calvin takes the long-view in real estate, which seems to be increasingly scarce in the frenzied San Francisco market. He is interested in building lifelong relationships with his clients, and ensuring that they are happy over the long-run." - Amber M. and Abraham S.
"Calvin made the process as smooth as possible. He also kept in contact through out the whole process. If selling or buying another property I would not hesitate to use his services again." - The Mah Family.
"Calvin is an exceptional agent. His integrity to follow through with multiple tasks, his experience to quickly resolve complex problems and his interpersonal skills with agents, principals and tenants have proven his worth in the industry. As a trustee, I had the responsibility selling and trading-up (1031) and later liquidating several income properties. He represented me on both ends over several years. I have full confidence in his abilities and look forward to the day when I will again work with him. Compass has made a good choice.
" - Paul C.

"Calvin was our agent when we recently sold our house in San Francisco. He was extremely attentive and helpful, guiding us through every step of the process. His advice on how to stage and show the house was critical in helping us get the best offer possible. He was always answering the phone and he was very professional with a friendly manner in dealing with interested buyers. Selling a house and moving to another state can be stressful, even in a strong market like San Francisco. Calvin took the stress out, allowing us to focus on buying our new dream home. We strongly recommend Calvin." - Raymond A. and Yelena Y.
"I was looking for a real estate agent to sell my San Mateo home. My friends recommended Mr. Calvin Kam and upon meeting Calvin, I was very impressed by his professional manner and knowledge of the market. Calvin was critical in helping me achieve my goal. He has a very strong business sense and great negotiation skills. He is punctual and returns phone calls promptly. If you are looking for a good real estate agent, choose Calvin Kam!" - Klaus W.

Calvin is savvy, personable, and knows the market inside and out.We never would have received such a generous offer on our home without him.To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Calvin and his expertise and we recommend him to everyone." - Glenn and Evelyn L.
"Although the process seemed like a life time for us, we had only knew Calvin for a little over two months from our initial meeting to closing on our home. Calvin was extremely professional throughout the process.We were originally working with another real estate agent prior to meeting Calvin. We became extremely bothered by the lack of communication and guidance with our old agent. We are so glad we decided to switch real estate agents because Calvin provided us with guidance throughout the entire process and was extremely responsive. It was a pleasure working with Calvin." - Kathy T. and David T.
"Great, very responsive, very knowledgeable, and super realistic." - Jordan W. and Esther F.

"Purchasing a home is an unforgettable experience. Of course, there is the excitement, the happiness, and the anticipation but in our case, there were also a few curve balls and hurdles along the way that were nerve wracking and anxiety provoking! We reached a point where we almost lost our dream home. Calvin Kam’s work ethic is unsurpassable and if we have our home today, it is in large part due to Calvin’s relentless advocacy and overall expertise. From day one, Calvin was thorough, knowledgeable, and keen to every aspect of our home purchase. During the most stressful moments of our purchase, Calvin was calm and collected but unfaltering in his determination to help us. I truly feel blessed to have placed our home purchase journey in such good hands." - Bessy M.
"Calvin was absolutely fantastic to work with and we would highly recommend him - a rare gem in the real estate industry who you can really trust to have your best interests at heart. He was upfront and direct with us about strategy and tactics for making an offer, gave us his honest opinion on value and tradeoffs, and advised us on what to look for in inspections and walk through and how to think about estimates for repairs and work that was needed on each property. With Calvin’s help, we found a home that we learned about, saw, and got an offer accepted on within 48 hours! He also has lots of helpful contacts for repairs and renovations if that’s something you need after closing. We cannot recommend him enough and would work with him again in a heartbeat." - Franklin & Julie B
"Amazing. Calvin delivered white glove customer service and attention to both my wife and I from start to finish. We will definitely look to work with him again in the future." - Ricardo R & Katherine L
