Amy Kong attributes her success to initiating her client relationships on trust, growing them with sincerity, and solidifying them with her performance. Amy is highly driven by the satisfaction she feels in knowing that her clients are raising their families and growing their wealth in the homes she helped them attain.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Amy moved to San Francisco in 1988 and soon landed her first real estate job in Chinatown. Her previous career in telemarketing helped her adjust to her new role, but she knew that only a tenacious mindset would push her forward. She helped modernize her office’s administrative systems, learned everything she could about the industry, and took advantage of the many professional educational opportunities available to her. The rest is history: Amy has been leading clients to success throughout the Bay Area ever since.
Amy credits knowledge as a pivotal key to success, and learning is her constant pursuit. She holds an impressive handful of designations, including Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager (CRB), and Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE). Honesty and integrity are the core values that her parents instilled in her from a young age. Those values are apparent in her career and also her community outreach efforts: She’s prolifically active in causes that enhance the rights of property owners. Among her various local and national endeavors, Amy was the 2011 Chinese Real Estate Association of America (CREAA) President, the 2017-2019 Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) Education Foundation Chair, and is the 2021 AREAA President-Elect.
Despite all of her community work, Amy finds time to indulge in her hobbies, which include hiking, badminton, watching movies, choir singing, and, not surprisingly, house hunting! She is bilingual in English and Cantonese.
