About Chami Kang

English, French, and Korean Speaking Real Estate Agent

A Parisian squatter launched Chami Kang's real estate career.

After purchasing and renovating her first “fixer-upper” near the Sorbonne in Paris, France (“location, location, location”), Chami found a tenant to lease her lovingly restored home (turned rental property), shortly before departing for a life in Montreal, Canada, with her French husband. 

Unfortunately, shortly upon arriving in North America, Chami’s tenant decided to stop paying the rent—and the nascent real estate investor found herself holding a TransAtlantic bag of rental property woes. Faced with this far-flung problem—and a monthly mortgage payment still due (Mon Dieu!), Chami learned her first real estate investing lesson the good ol’ fashioned hard way. 

Fortunately, there’s a happy ending to the beginning of Chami’s real estate investment career. Faced with the realities of a rock and a hard place, Chami’s fast thinking, and creative problem solving opened her imagination to the bigger possibilities—for herself, and others—who increasingly seek her humble, steadfast, yet highly inventive approach to investing in properties. 

Chami’s pathway to buying—or selling—a home is akin to entering into a long-term relationship—where honesty and respect are paramount—and lasting friendships are inevitable. She’ll soon become a trusted advisor—and your fiercest advocate, anticipating all the knowns and “countless unknowns,” with fearless, honest, yet compassionate advice. 

When you work with Chami, it’s not just a numbers game. Renowned for her endurance in the “marathon” of real estate negotiations and transactions (she’s often seen dashing around in a pair of bright white sneakers), Chami is relentless in pairing her clients with their ideal homes at the best possible price. 

A  savvy, self-taught real estate investor, Chami strives to assist Sellers and Buyers in positioning themselves for financial success, if not independence, through timely, intentional, and trustworthy real estate investing advice.

Chami is a French-, and Korean-speaking agent, residing in the Peninsula with her multi-national, multi-lingual, multi-cultural family. She owns and manages investment properties in San Francisco, and Paris France, where's she's highly knowledgeable of school districts, shopping and dining destinations, and open spaces along the penisula—as well as the Paris-Metro region.

Chami씨 덕분에 저희 가족에 딱 맞는 집을 찾게 되어 정말 기쁘게 생각합니다. 더우기 첫 오퍼에서 수락될거라고는 예상하지 못했는데, 리얼터분의 수완으로 빠르게 일처리가 되어 좋은 기회를 잡을 수 있었던 것 같습니다. 열정적이고 전문적인 지식을 바탕으로 프로페셔널하게 일처리를 해주셔서 비교적 수월하게 집을 찾아 계약에 성공한 것 같습니다. 추가적으로 에스크로스중에도 정원 스프링쿨러 수리나 이전 렌...
