Testimonials
George Chung represented my ex-wife and I both when we initially bought our house in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles, CA and when we sold it many years later. When we bought our house, the property was initially for sale and then pulled off of the market. We had really wanted that property even as we continued to look for a house. The property eventually entered foreclosure and George called us immediately and advised us on what we might offer. The bank got three offers but they only came back to us and we got the house. George was very helpful and a very good negotiator.
Many years later when we sold the house, it was during a down real estate market and George really helped to get us a very good price in spite of the market conditions. He knows the market on the West Side of Los Angeles very, very well. He was always very responsive and professional. If you are in the market for a house on the West Side of Los Angeles, I would recommend George. He did a great job for us.
