About Kalok Law
Describe your journey to real estate.
I think my journey to real estate is a little different than most. You can say real estate kind of found me. I believe that a huge part of life is timing. Whether you are able to be at the right place at the right time. I always say real estate was greatness that was thrust upon me.
I started my journey in 2009 as a transaction coordinator with Sequoia Real Estate. I started in this industry with almost no knowledge or experience. I would say Kelvin took a chance with me and I am forever grateful for that.
It took me roughly 3 years before I actually buckled down and got my real estate license. I still cannot believe I’ve been with this company for almost 5 years and I cannot be more blessed to be a part of this company and surrounded by so many supportive people. We are in an industry that’s constantly changing, and being surrounded by people who are eager not only to learn but to teach is simply amazing.
What are three words your clients would use to describe you?
Dedicated, responsive, patient.
What most excites you about your work?
The most exciting part about real estate is having the opportunity to help my clients take a step into their future. Whether it is purchasing a first home or selling their current home, it is humbling to be trusted and to have the opportunity to be next to them and to assist them during what can be a uncertain part of life.
Where can we find you when you're not working?
Well, the thing about real estate is, you work. A lot. But, when I have some free time, you can find me in bed trying to dive into a new book.
What would be impossible for you to give up?
I am almost ashamed to admit that it feels almost impossible to give up caffeine and my cell phone.
Anything else you'd like to tell people about yourself?
I am a true believer that any collaboration will go further than a single person can. I believe everyone has his or her strengths and weaknesses and that is what makes a team effort so much more powerful. This is one of the main reasons why I am a 100% believer of Sequoia’s support staff system.
Real estate or anything in life can be a long journey. Now imagine how much more enjoyable this journey can be--if you had the right people next to you.
What would you say to a 5-year-old child if he or she asked you what the purpose of life is?
The purpose of life is to enjoy each milestone for what it is. We spend too much time planning our futures and there is nothing wrong with that, but while you’re planning and eagerly anticipating the “future” to happen… you may forget to enjoy the now.
What magical power would you want to have?
If I could have a magical power… I would like to be able to fly. I would love the opportunity to see different places and experience all the different cultures that fill up our world. I know, it’s selfish for not wanting to end world hunger… ;)

We both couldn't have purchased our first home without Kalok's help. In the future if we want to purchase another home or sell our current home we will definitely be going back to Kalok for assistance again without a doubt. Being a first time home buyer we had a lot of questions and concerns, naturally. But Kalok and her team are awesome in clarifying, breaking down step by step, the process of home buying. And now we are home owners! She worked around our schedules - even when I would be stuck doing overtime at work! She would still be available to see a house with us that we wanted to check out. We looked a various locations and price points, and she knew what to look out for when looking at a house. When we were negotiating in escrow, we really felt that Kalok was looking out for the both of us. It was VERY comforting that we knew we had her support. I recommended her and Sequoia to the people I knew in my network and group of friends who are in the market of buying a home.

Kalok was truly a godsend for us during our first home buying experience. We had a million questions and she answered them all in a friendly and thorough manner. She was constantly in contact with us with new listings and she was always available to help us through every part of the home buying process, no matter how big or how small. Finally, as she helped us navigate to the end of an arduous journey, she retained the same level of enthusiasm, professionalism and follow through that she had on day one. She's a great agent and we were lucky to have her.

My wife and I just bought our first home. We interviewed and worked with a few "more experienced" real estate agents and were very disappointed... until we met Kalok, who was recommended by a friend. At first, I have to admit, we also thought that her youth could be paired with inexperience. But here we are today, closed and happy to be so, in less than 3 months from start to end. That's pretty short, knowing that other friends and colleagues did take from 6 months to a year to find a home. We also have busy lives and our schedules are pretty eclectic but Kalok worked around us each time. She answered all of our questions and would seek answers from knowledgeable sources to do what it took to get the best answer possible. She was very available and patient. She would always be on our side and support our decisions. There would not be a house or a price that she would not be willing to work with. She would support us and defend us against others. In the end, she worked smoothly with our mortgage broker and the seller's agent to make this transaction as fluid as possible. I would recommend working with Kalok, and we will certainly use her again, whether we buy or sell our home. Her flexibility and dedication will exceed your expectations!

Melanie Leung and Kalok Law recently helped us list and close the sale of our first property we’ve ever owned. As first-time sellers, we were not sure what to expect but from beginning to end, the process was extremely smooth and we really couldn’t have had a more positive experience. After talking with another “bigger-name, well-known” brokerage house, we ultimately decided to list with Sequoia. Beyond the exemplary demonstration of the local and area market, we felt that Melanie and Kalok just worked harder for our business, and that would carry through in the selling process.We were not disappointed. Several open houses, many private showings, and less than 2 weeks later, we had 9 offers in front of us. It’s no secret that it was a white-hot seller’s market when we listed, but to say we were pleasantly surprised by the sheer quantity as well as quality of the offers we got is an understatement. Melanie and Kalok did an excellent job in helping us through the process, all in the most professional and organized manner. They seemed to know just how to apply the right amount of pressure at the right times, and were always ultra responsive to any questions or concerns we had along the way. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Sequoia, Melanie and Kalok and can highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell, especially in San Francisco.

"THE PERFECT EXPERIENCE, is all I can say initially. Kalok was able to provide great advice on what I needed to do to market my house to the best that it can be. She also, along with colisting agent, Eileen Chau, was able to pick the perfect price point for listing my property. From there on it was as smooth as butter for the rest of the transaction. We received 21 offers on the house and Kalok was able to work the negotiations with the top 6. She did a stellar job getting in contract with the best offer. All together with the updates and all, I couldn't have asked for a perfect agent. If you have the opportunity to work with her, take it and know that you're in great hands."

"It was such a pleasure working with Kalok as our agent. Not only does she have strong expertise in real estate and the general home-buying transaction process, but she was very helpful, patient and understanding. I was particularly impressed by her willingness to help us with the little things for the home: getting quotes for window replacements, helping us arrange for a handyman fix the jacuzzi tub cover, reminding us to re-key the locks, etc.I would highly recommend her as an agent to my friends and family!"

I recently had to relocate to the Bay Area for work from Hong Kong and looking for the right house for my family with a language barrier was a daunting task. Finding the right Realtor was even more stressful. We were very lucky to have found Kalok who was a referral from a friend. She is super patient, reachable and resourceful. She negotiated even the smallest requests for us and managed to close escrow in 15 days during the Holiday season. I would definitely inquire her service again when we decide to sell or buy again.
Michael L., Buyer
As first time sellers, my husband and I are fortunate to have Kalok and Kelvin as our agents. They were very patient in answering our endless questions and always provided the rationale for any decision making, which put us completely at ease. Their dependability, one-step-ahead attitude and expert negotiation skills left us worry free during the whole process and even got us a higher sales price. In addition, we loved the complimentary staging service they offered! We would definitely recommend them and their team to anyone looking a dedicated and efficient real estate team.
Kyong K., Sellers
“As first-time home buyers, we were concerned about proper knowledge and what had to be done at each step of the way. After expressing our concern, Kalok took extra care to ensure that we had all of the information we needed to feel calm and comfortable throughout the entire process. She was patient with us and very responsive to our never-ending questions, even when we asked some of them twice! Our feedback was welcomed and Kalok’s above-and-beyond efforts were more than relieving. She made sure we were well taken care of from start to finish. Needless to say, we couldn’t have closed within thirty days without her!”
