As a former professional golfer, Chris Kwon learned his share of lessons on the links, the most important of which was to move forward, no matter how difficult the obstacle. Today, the Irvine, California native applies that lesson to his real estate dealings. And it's paying off: now in his 8th year as a real estate professional, Kwon has increased his volume every year since he started, and had his best year in 2020, helping 43 families buy and sell and nearly 50 million in sales.
"It's so important that I'm exceptionally good at what I do because a persons home is one of the most important investments that an individual can make, says Kwon. I believe that I need to always be sharpening my skills on a daily basis so I'm ahead of the curb and daily trends. I really believe that I need to provide an overwhelming amount of value to my clients so their needs are taken care of and my business can thrive."
Kwon's exceptional value manifests itself via the fact that he is a full service provider for his clients. The Fine Arts and Graphic Design grad combines his keen artistic senses with his business acumen and flair for communication to create a powerful message for both sellers and buyers. Nowadays, professionals need to wear so many hats, Kwon says. We not only need to sell a product, we need to know how to market effectively, manage a transaction, personalities, handle problems and provide solutions.
Kwon is a NAR realtor and has pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds from each of his sales to a local school or charity. "I want to help the people that I work for all the while helping the people and community around us," Kwon says. Kwon has been married to the love of his life since May 2015, and is father to a four year old daughter and a two year old son. In his spare time, his family enjoys traveling several times a year, crossfitting and making videos.
"It's a different time. This pandemic has definitely changed the real estate game. I still remember the first time we recognized his brand - through an open house, neighborhood flyer, and a friendly gift wrapping paper every Christmas. As a resident of the Villages of Irvine for five years, we were always on a lookout for a future agent and his marketing skills definitely caught our eyes. Chris's work is definitely on a much different level. For us, communication was always key in building trust. Chris was always reachable, responsive, and efficient. Best of it all, he was always considerate of our time and of course punctual. We interviewed several agents along with their references. We were impressed by his working style and approach. He's always a step ahead of the game. In short, we got an offer literally 4 hours after our first set of showing. You want to work with someone that is surrounded by an A team and the best in the business. If you are in the area and looking to sell, he is definitely the agent to choose. His numbers speaks for itself. We will not hesitate to refer him to our family and friends....and of course, we will definitely use his skills to sell and buy our next set of homes again.

"Chris helped us get multiple offers for the sale of our house in Costa Mesa during the Covid-19 pandemic. I was initially unsure about the timing. His CMA was very thorough. We were also impressed by his business acumen in the real estate market and digital advertising experience. He definitely stood out and won me over among all the top agents we had talked to. More importantly we had a tenant situation at the time. Chris helped tremendously during the transition and preparation for the listing. He was willing to go extra miles to help in the process. I found Chris always professional, responsive, organized and trustworthy. He has what it takes to make a successful transaction. I could not recommend enough about Chris to the people in my network and to all who are looking for a star performer agent in SoCal. " - freerme
"I was very fortunate to meet Chris Kwon through a referral. I’m hoping this review does the same for anyone in the market to buy/sell a home. Chris arrived to our first meeting with a market analysis specific to my property and prepared to immediately answer any additional questions I had, providing alternatives during the COVID pandemic. My house was staged, photographed, videoed and placed on the market within five days. It was in escrow within two weeks after the third showing. Chris and his team followed the closing process to make sure the necessary steps were completed correctly in a timely manner. The team’s excellent communication kept me informed throughout the entire process. Their professionalism, attention to detail and business acumen provided me with a real estate experience beyond my expectations. Chris always made me feel like his highest priority. I highly recommend Chris Kwon for anyone buying or selling a home! " - finallyca
"Short version: Chris is an amazing agent! Hire him immediately! You're welcome. Long version: My husband is an agent in a different state, so we are picky with the agents we use. We only work with professional, technologically savvy, proactive, friendly agents, and Chris is definitely one of the best we've worked with! I had been a fan of his amazing videos for quite some time and jumped at the chance to work with him on selling our Woodbury property. We are out of state so it really helped to have an agent that was proactive and thorough to be our eyes and ears. Chris took over everything and worked very quickly. He made an Oscar worthy video along with dynamic photos that showcased our house extremely well. We had offers in no time and sold our property in record time at a price higher than we were hoping! He took care of all the details and made it easy to be so far away. The communication and negotiating on our behalf, was top notch. Simply put, he's awesome and anyone would be lucky to work with him! " - graceskyblue
"We are so happy that we were able to work with Chris on a home sale last month. Just after the house was put on the market and he held open houses, the coronavirus pandemic hit. We were so worried that everything would have to be placed on hold for an indeterminate number of months. Chris handled the situation with incredible skill, tenacity, and professionalism. He kept us updated throughout the process and made sure that everything went as scheduled. We highly recommend Chris to anyone planning on buying or selling a home in southern California. " - stewed1
2020 Year in Review
At the beginning of each year, I look back on the year that I had. I celebrate my wins and do what I can to learn from all the mistakes that I made. It’s usually about me and my achievements & failures but this time it’s different. How could I recap on what I’ve done when there’s so much more happening in the real world. It’s easy to think about all that we lost but then I started to think about what we gained, that was hard. It was hard to see the positives in life but those that do prevail. Those that see that glass half full as supposed to the glass half empty get through it all.
2020 was a record breaking year for me and to say that I constantly saw the glass half full would be lie but I did more often than not.
Who knows what 2021 will be like but I made it through 2020 a stronger individual. I feel pretty good that I can take what 2021 will throw at me.
