Mony’s drive to succeed is deeply rooted in a childhood of extreme hardship. A survivor of the Killing Fields of Cambodia, he also spent five years in refugee camps in Thailand and the Philippines before arriving in the U.S., where he worked as a child laborer in a migrant camp. Mony persevered, became a police officer, and served 17 years at the Livermore Police Department. He went on to earn his degree in business management from St. Mary’s College and transitioned to a career in real estate. Mony credits his ability to navigate the challenges of buying or selling homes to his difficult upbringing and law enforcement background.
Now known as the #givingbackrealtor, Mony enjoys being actively involved in his community. He is the founder and president of Rising Young Leaders, which provides leadership training to middle- and high-school students. Mony is also the co-founder of Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance, which works to help more than 400 local nonprofit organizations achieve their missions.
Mony has been featured on CBS’s “The Early Show” and ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” for his community service. Some of his awards include the Good Neighbors Award from Bay East Association of Realtors® in 2014, the Good Neighbor Award from the National Association of Realtors® in 2017, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Award in 2018, and the St. Mary’s College Meritorious Service Award in 2019.
