Over the last fifteen years, Helen Chong has negotiated millions of dollars of real estate transactions and grossed hundreds of millions of dollars in equity for her clients. Though her successes might appear easily won, in reality she painstakingly built a career, family, and home unlike any she herself had ever known.
Motivated by an early life of financial hardship, Helen moved to the United States from Hong Kong by herself in search of the American Dream. Using her own resourcefulness and her unique mindset, she approached each obstacle with optimism and hope.
In this book, she shares her struggles with an honesty that inspires others to face their own challenges with the same determined attitude. Interspersed with tales of her pursuit of the American Dream, she demonstrates how she secured her financial security so that her readers and clients can discover their own path to freedom.
