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 Arcadia, California native applies that lesson to his real estate dealings. And it's paying off: now in his 5th year as a real estate professional, Kwon has increased his volume every year since he started, and had his best year in 2016, helping 28 families buy and sell and nearly 20 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 three year old daughter and a 9 month old son. In his spare time, his family enjoys traveling together several times a year.
