More Information
Nancy’s parents taught her three core values: discipline, service, and empathy. These principles have guided her actions throughout her real estate career.

In 1974, she came to the United States to complete graduate studies. Before entering real estate, Nancy worked in the corporate world for 15 years. Following in the entrepreneurial footsteps of her grandmother, who founded an equity capital firm, she started Century 21 S.G.R., Inc. in 1989.

As President of Century 21 S.G.R., Inc., Nancy built her firm into a major marketer of developments in Chicago and Asia, with over 1,700 new construction units sold or financed. Her firm has three locations with over 100 agents. In 2017, it ranks no. 1 as the most productive Century 21 Franchise in Chicagoland region. Nancy has been actively engaged in the international real estate market for over a decade and has relentlessly promoted its potential to other brokers. In 2017, as NAR’s Regional Coordinator to Asia-Pacific, Lebanon, and UAE, she spearheaded the 2017 International REALTORS® Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, which also featured a 5-day CIPS class before the start of the symposium. In recognition of her efforts to strengthen the bonds between NAR and cooperative Asia Pacific Associations, she was awarded the NAR Global Achievement Award at its 2017 National Conference in Chicago.

Following her father’s admonition to serve and give to others without expectation or judgement, Nancy has striven to recruit Asians and other minorities into the industry. As 2006 CAR President, she helped design an outreach program to solicit members’ needs and strengthen their connection to CAR, especially many minority members on the fringe. In 2009, she founded the Chicago Chapter of Asian Real Estate Association of America, whose mission is to advance Asian homeownership. In 2014, she was awarded the Century 21 International Marsh Fischer Award for promoting diversity in the industry. In 2010, she was appointed FIABCI-Chicago Chapter President and National Treasurer in 2017.
