Known for his positive attitude, strong work ethic, cool composure, and keen eye for design, Kwon is a well-respected realtor, architect and colleague in the community.
Passionate about design and style is what led Kwon to originally pursue a career in architecture and real estate development. As an undergraduate student, he began studying landscape architecture with an emphasis in urban design and land use planning. While later expanding his knowledge in macroenvironmental issues, historical preservations, and governmental policies, Kwon developed a real interest in structural building designs, founding his love for architecture. This led him to get his master’s degree in architecture from the University of California, Berkeley. Still curious, Kwon was drawn to mastering 3D modeling and digital fabrication in various projects. He then went on to pursue his master’s degree in Real Estate Development at the University of Southern California, furthering his knowledge in market analysis, finance, project entitlement, and property management.
