About Egan Lim
“One of my greatest self achievements is losing 55lbs in 3 months. That transformation has led to a new passion in life--being active.”
Describe your real estate journey.
It began in 2006, when I had an opportunity to invest in properties in Las Vegas. However, my friend/broker suggested I stay away from it due to the declining market. The interest of investing spawned new ideas and opportunities shortly thereafter. Ever since, I stayed on that same path and haven't looked back.
What are three words your clients would use to describe you?
Energetic, Driven, and Resourceful
What most excites you about your work?
Two things: (1) Creating innovative tactics in real estate and implementing them into my business. (2) Seeing my client's satisfaction after closing a transaction.
Where can we find you when you're not working?
Either with my family or doing something active. One of my greatest self achievements is losing 55lbs in 3 months. That transformation has led to a new passion in life--being active.
What would be impossible for you to give up?
My quality time with family and personal relationships.
Anything else you'd like to tell people about yourself?
I started and owned a couple startups and decided to steer in the direction of real estate because it's what I'm passionate about today. One can't call it work when it's been a fun journey.
What would you like to do in the future?
I'm a thrill seeker and love adventures. From scuba diving off the reefs in Honduras, to swimming with sharks in Belize, to spelunking in the caves of Puerto Rico, and sky diving over a volcano in Hawaii, I love trying new activities that challenge me. In the same sense, I challenge myself in real estate and constantly thrive to provide for my clients.
What is your favorite room in the house?
The great room. In my home, the great room includes an open floor plan of the kitchen, family room, and upstairs. This centralized part of the home is where most of my guests and family congregate in. Seeing all people come together welcomes memories for years to come.
I have lived in San Francisco almost all my life. Whether away for work or school, the beautiful region of San Francisco Bay Area always pulls me back. I live an active lifestyle which includes many interests such as scuba diving, snowboarding, photography, designing, food, wine, and cooking. In my off time, I give back to the community. Ultimately, I like to make a larger footprint to children without homes.
In 2005, I explored real estate investments. At that time, I invested in REITs and continued exploring other investment outlets. Within the past two years, our team has purchased foreclosed homes, renovated them, then flip the properties. The homes went through an extensive array of renovations ranging from kitchen, bathroom, floors, exterior facial, landscaping, staging, and additional levels.
So why list with me? Exposure and feature your home in ways others don’t. As an investor, I understand what it takes to sell your home. Let’s face it: the thought of selling your home in this economy can be challenging and stressful. We know staging sells. I’m so confident in this sales strategy that I offer complimentary staging services for all my clients. To prepare your listing, we have a designer to completely furnish your home, leaving buyers with a striking first impression. In addition, I provide your listing with professional photos and a virtual tour; thereby, enticing buyers to visit your home and make offers. As your dedicated listing agent, I want your property to stand out from the rest. My goal is to maximize your property’s exposure.
Are you in the market to buy a home? What better way then have someone to represent you who is a native San Franciscan. I understand the pressures and concerns of purchasing a home. I remember the excitement and anxiety during my home search. Through your buying process, you want to have the most dedicated representation, looking out for your best interests.
Egan Lim was phenomenal! He was reliable and communicative right from the start and delivered everything he promised. We had complete faith and trust in him. This was our first listing and Egan was extremely patient with us and was available to answer our questions regardless of what time it was. We had a very short timeline to get the house ready for our target list date and Egan made it happen. He completely exceeded our expectation! We sold our home in less than a week of listing and closed in less than 14 days!

Egan helped us purchase our home. He is extremely professional, very polite and well mannered, extremely helpful on all the questions we had. He is super patient with us, he also educated us around the area in order for us to get to know both Daly City and San Francisco since we live down in Southern California. Will most definitely recommend Egan to any of my friends and relatives when they are ready to buy a property!
