Hello. I’m John Chung and I understand the need for and value of unsurpassed representation when you are buying or selling your home. My background includes distinction as a Cum Laude graduate from UCR with a BS in Business Administration and work managing endowments and investment portfolios with over $3 billion in assets.
I became a realtor in 2006 and now combine over a decade of successful Silicon Valley real estate transactions with use of cutting-edge technology and my experience in high-net-worth asset management to provide clients with excellent insights on creating value and maximizing residential real estate investment appreciation.
As a Palo Alto native, I grew up with a deep respect and appreciation for the beauties, cultures, heritage, lifestyles and people of the Silicon Valley – invaluable intelligence I contribute to help you gain the most from your ownership or to find the right place to call home.
With client satisfaction as my #1 goal – to give you service that far exceeds expectation – I employ open communication, honesty, complete transparency, critical thinking and can-do negotiation skills to create a working relationship that will meet your needs and achieve your home buying or selling goals. While I am a top-producing agent with strong negotiation skills and an innovative approach, I’m also partnered with Lan Bowling, the #1 Keller-Williams agent in 2015 out of 135,000 agents. Keller Williams #1 Team nationwide in 2016 and 2017.
Together, Lan and I have built a reputation in the Silicon Valley real estate marketplace for:
- Absolute client confidentiality
- Hands-on service and communication provided in the manner preferred by each client
- Up-to-the-minute market research to guide our pricing recommendations
- Use of technology to provide instant communication and access to information
- Incredible multimedia marketing – custom signage, individual property websites, e-flyers, 4-8 page premium brochures, 3 D virtual tours, drone cinematography, social media campaigns and web presentations that bring our individualized marketing plans to life
- Strong negotiating skills – your hard earned money should not be left on the table
- Beneficial working relationships with other agents and agencies in the Silicon Valley marketplace – to assure that our clients’ properties and offers are given priority consideration
- Maintaining a preferred list of exceptional merit and value vendors to assure that each task between offer and closing is performed correctly and on time
Lan and I are experienced in all aspects of the real estate industry, including major renovations, new construction, staging/design, and simple remodels.
I work with clients in many different career tracks from wage earners to small business owners, entrepreneurs to Fortune 500 executives, professionals to investors and builders. No transaction is too big or too small; and each of my clients receives my upmost attention and commitment to their success. I take pride in conducting business with integrity. I am also bilingual and speak Mandarin Chinese. Beyond real estate, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family & friends and being a foodie.

My husband and I have owned a home in Palo Alto continuously since 1975. For a time in that period we also lived in Canada where my husband was on the faculty of medicine at the University of Calgary.
