About us

Awarded by the National Association of Realtor's 30 Under 30, Connie Chung's success began early, and time after time, she has proven her value to clients and the industry, consistently ranking in the top 5% of San Francisco Realtors. She interprets every home as an investment, and as an investor herself, Connie empowers clients to make sound financial decisions. Through unwavering integrity, due diligence, and compassion, she's humbled that over 90% of her team's business comes from word-of-mouth referrals and repeat clients.

Connie graduated from UC Berkeley and completed a fellowship in Public Policy and International Affairs at Princeton University. Among her experience working on campaigns and in the non-profit sector, Connie attributes her grit and negotiation skills to growing up as one of six kids to immigrant parents. She lives with her husband and their growing-up-too-fast toddler, Mia.

"Boba and donuts."

FAVORITE MEMORY:

"Traveling and couchsurfing throughout Europe on my own for 4 months after college. Getting lost many times over taught me how to read a map like the back of my hand!"

CONSTANT OBSESSION:

VALUE I HOLD:

"Everyone deserves a safe place to call home. Having worked at a domestic violence shelter, that sentiment couldn't be more true."

THOUGHTS ON BEING A FATHER TO A PUPPY:

"Cherish sleep when you can get it :)"

FAVORITE AUTHOR:

"Ryan Holiday's books: The Obstacle is the Way, Stillness is the Key, and Ego is the Enemy have all been instrumental in shaping my adulthood and career.

"My wife and I have 33 homes, spread across a few different cities (Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Kansas City, Philly and Charlotte)." 

AN ACTIVE INVESTOR: 

COUNTRIES TRAVELED:

what i live in:

"Elizabeth Suzann linen and classic black denim."

"The power of really listening to someone's story for what they say... and what they don't."

working as a radio-maker taught me: 

ON MY PLAYLIST ROTATION:

"A mix of 90's neo-soul, pop from the 00's and 10's, lots of 20's moodiness -- and the occasional Cantonese song (since giving my parents access to my Spotify)."

my idea of a perfect evening: 

"Closing down all my tabs and apps after a day of meaningful, fulfilling work to cook a simple meal, turn up the music, and sing my little heart out."

Raised on the Peninsula, Lily understands the diversity, natural scenery and local neighborhoods that the Bay Area has to offer. She is dedicated to serving her clients with an insider’s perspective and three mantras- the home, the people, and their unique stories.

favorite part of owning a cafe:

"Seeing cafe goers take their first sip - and blossoming relationships with regulars (knowing their orders in advance too!). Greeting familiar faces felt more like greeting good friends."

What’s the ideal day off look like to you? 

"Somewhere on the beach, or under a tree swinging in a hammock with a book and my dog, Cinnamon, cuddled next to me."

Favorite home renovation project:

"Helping my parents build their dream home. From drafting floor plans to working alongside my dad, a general contractor, through the full construction process, to buying an enormous piece of redwood and turning it into a 14-person dining table... to now, seeing my parents fully enjoying retirement in this home, constantly brings me heartfelt joy."

YOU RAN A BOBA BIZ... WHAT'S THE SECRET SAUCE?

"If you really want to know - it’s a five letter word and starts with S… "

The best part of this profession for Jennifer, or Jen as she's known, is that it gives her the opportunity to create genuine relationships with each and every client and fellow agent. Serving our clients in the North Bay and San Francisco, Jen started her real estate career in New York City. After making it through the Great Recession still standing, she built her business up to the top 3% of company agents nationwide. Settling back into the Bay Area equipped with this experience, she fine-tuned her process and strategies to give her clients the best possible buying or selling experience. Now, over a decade later, this business has become who she is. It has seen her through a cross-country move, a wedding, a graduate degree, purchasing her first house, her first home renovation, and her first child. Further, studying Nutrition and Functional Medicine shaped the way she approaches her clients and their needs from a holistic and no-pressure philosophy. These experiences have helped her to become better and better at doing what she loves.

Jen graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara and earned her master's degree in Nutrition and Functional Medicine, which inspires her passion to approach real estate from a place of wellness. She lives in Corte Madera with her husband and their 18-month-daughter, Charlotte. 

Jennifer Ferland

AFFILIATE

To me wellness means:

"Creating the right environment for my body and mind. Above all, eating nourishing foods! It's the foundation for feeling good. Next, sleep (it's not overrated) and surrounding myself with nurturing relationships (good vibes only)."

Motherhood has taught me: 

"...that there will always be *something*. Life does not and can not wait until your plate is cleared. Do the things. Be the best version of yourself as you are today."

"Whatever it is, it includes a large, fancy glass of Pinot Noir."

My ideal date night:

Favorite design tip to spruce up any home:

"A well-placed fiddle leaf fig. And, my favorite, a white or glass vase filled with eucalyptus."

Our goal is to make the process seamless for you...
and dare we say, fun.

We love empowering and educating our clients with information in an accessible way. Ultimately,  we want you to make the most informed and sound financial decision that's best for you and your loved ones.

"The dream team... Warm, assuring, never pushy, and always all smiles overlaying their combined vast amount of knowledge and experience in Bay Area real estate. It's hard to describe just how solid the foundation is that they have worked hard to set for us. From the very beginning, they put our interests and concerns first, and guided us to make the best home purchase decision possible that was tailored to our tastes, our needs, and our budget."
