A “Three Hundred Dollar” Success Story

New Star Realty & Investment Group honorable Chairman Chris Moonkey Nam arrived in the US With three hundred dollars in his pocket ; he now heads the largest Asian-held real estate agency in southern California, with three billion dollars in annual sales.

In 1982, I was immigrated to the United State with $300. Soon after I founded “New Star Realty”, which is now the largest Korean American Real Estate Group in United States. I came to America with pure passion and honesty. I established New Star as the leading company of immigrant Koreans with diligence.

In 2006, New Star Group has 2,300 agents and sales reached a trillion dollars in March.

Mr. Nam’s philosophy is to have all Korean immigrants find success and stability in the United States. He also wants to give hopes and dreams to young people. 

He practices “noblige oblige” to provide scholarships to many students for 15 years. He has established the New Star scholarship committee. He’s been giving scholarships to 1193 students and last year in 2015, he awarded 92-93 students who are in need of financial and moral support. His main purpose is to not only grow his company, but also to encourage and give hope and dreams to everyone in the society.
