Why I Became a Real Estate Developer


Someone asked me why I became a real estate developer... Here's my story.


My family immigrated to Calgary, Alberta, Canada after surviving 5 years of the Khmer Rouge Regime in the mid-to-late 1970s. Both of my parents worked 2-3 jobs in order for us to survive in Canada in the early 1980s.


After almost a year, my parents purchased our first brand new home in Dover, Calgary for $70,000 at a 13% interest. It was a small home that was roughly 900 square feet with 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. My older sister and I shared one room, and my parents had the other room. It was ​the ​right size home for my family. We lived in that home for over 15 years and shared many happy memories there.


When I was in my early twenties, I reminisced about those memories and came to a realization that some developer built this home for a family to create these memories. I knew then and there I wanted to become a real estate developer. I knew I wanted to create homes for others to create the wonderful memories I experienced.


Today every one of the homes that we build has this intent/energy instilled in them. I hope to continuously develop beautiful homes for families to create many special memories.
