A real estate powerhouse, Amy Duong Kim joined the industry in 2005 and quickly pulled her husband, Howard Kim, into the business to establish a team. Today she’s a founding member at Compass, the president of Duong Kim Global, and the 2020 president of the Greater Chicago chapter of the Asian Real Estate Association of America. She serves customers of all types, including investors, luxury clients and first-time homebuyers.
With many years of experience living and working all over Chicagoland, the team brings intimate, diverse knowledge of the market to clients. “It’s important to understand each and every client is different. Their backgrounds are different. Their stories are different. Their reasons for buying and selling are different. And as such, we always work for and with our clients with open hearts and minds, with compassion and patience,” Duong Kim says.
Duong Kim and Kim have rapidly grown their team by prioritizing education, attentive service and tough negotiation. Broker Eva Knapp is armed with a background in marketing and public relations, experience as a small business owner, and extensive knowledge of Chicago. With four years of real estate experience behind her, Knapp works with a variety of clients on single-family homes, multifamily properties, new construction and more. She takes a relaxed, personable and data-driven approach to her work and prides herself on keeping up to date with the market, which allows her to properly advise clients. “I let my clients drive the process without feeling pressure to buy something quickly or to act without proper research,” she says.
Thanks to the group’s efforts to navigate a complex market, Duong Kim Global has been able to find success as a team. They made REAL Trends’ America’s Best list in 2019 and were ranked among the top 100 teams by Chicago magazine in 2020.
