Calgary Real Estate Agent & REALTOR ®
I emigrated from Vietnam to Calgary in 1979. Being raised under the roof of first-generation immigrant parents, they instilled the value of hard work, tenacity, and above all, integrity. These attributes would be something I carried with me and honed my entire life. Having worked several unfulfilling jobs, I decided to try my hand at real estate investing.
In 2002, I bought my first property funded by capital from relatives. From that moment, I knew I had found my calling. For me, it was never about the commission. I was driven to guide people in making long-term property investments that helped them achieve financial freedom. Since then, I have facilitated the selling and buying of over 100 properties and continue to own a vast number of properties in Calgary to this day. I specialize in flipping houses, home renovating, granite fabrication and importing materials for home improvement.
By garnering experience in all aspects of real estate, I was able to secure funding from a group of investors. My proven track record won them over by emphasizing that there is no substitute for experience. As I grew my network, I continuously referred clients to my brother, a residential real estate agent. When my brother decided to switch to commercial real estate, I knew that I had to earn my residential real estate license. My clients needed me. In 2014, I became a real estate agent and REALTOR®. I have had the opportunity to work with amazing people and am thankful to continuously receive repeat business and referrals that helps to grow my business.
Currently, I am the CEO of several companies including Divine Estates (a property management company), Contemporary Natural Stones (a company that fabricates granite and quartz) and Canada Cup Gaming (a company that hosts international video game competitions). Additionally, I serve as the director of Torhill Estates (a land holdings and development company).
I currently reside in Calgary with my wife and two children. I have a passion for guiding people in making long-term property investments, working out, MMA training and hosting international video game tournaments across Canada.
