About the Team Leader: Danny Truong
Drawing from my family’s legacy of strength and courage, I pursued a dream of my own and learned a priceless lesson.
I turned over the phrase in my head before translating it aloud into Vietnamese for my mother. We had moved a couple of times already, and by the time I was 13, I became an intermediary for my parents between REALTORS®. That experience planted the seed for a lifelong passion.
My parents left Vietnam during the war. As a soldier fighting alongside the US for democracy, getting out of the country was a matter of life and death for my father. He and my mother told me about the many parts of their journey to build a new life in America. There were weeks they spent on a small boat at sea among millions of other refugees, years at a refugee camp in the Philippines, and finally arriving in the United States with nothing.
The two of them worked nearly nonstop to provide my sister and me with the best opportunities possible. Even though we did not have much, they always found something to share with others in need. Whether it was dinner, a little money, or staging an event, I grew up with giving back as second nature and recognized the more success I achieved, the more I could give.
My parents sacrificed so much to provide me with this awesome opportunity. Although I did not choose the route they had expected, I made it my own through pursuing my passion to work with others. I love being of service and knew business was the perfect avenue. I began a career in car sales with real estate still on my mind.
I spent many years in management and training others. However, after having my daughter, I saw everything in a new light. Working six days a week, I was not home a lot and wanted more time with my family. In 2018, when my middle child was 3 years old, I went cold turkey into real estate.
I loved it as much as ever, and though it was a struggle at first, I was used to being the underdog. Although I was born here, I did not learn English until I started kindergarten. I had to learn it on my own and grew up independent, resourceful and resilient, learning whatever I needed as I went along. As a child, I was often picked on and used that as motivation to be the best in whatever I did. All the while, I kept in mind the legacy of strength and courage passed on from my parents.
I am a product of my parents, my culture, this nation, and the journey that has brought me where I am today. At some point, I realized the more resistance I had to face, the more I had to accomplish. Those things in life considered high-risk are often those with the highest reward. Real estate has given me exponentially more time to be with my family while also serving a bigger purpose for those in my community than ever before.
My mission is to provide everyone from every type of background with great service. I want to close the disparity in the housing gap by connecting everyone with the opportunity of homeownership in order to build generational wealth. The big, difficult things in life push us to see how far we will go. I have found that the only way forward is through taking one step after another in the right direction.
Whenever I am not working, I enjoy participating in my axe throwing league, swimming, fishing, playing poker, and coaching my son’s football team. My favorite part of being a REALTOR® is spending time with my team and clients.
As a REALTOR®, I will always begin with a Needs Analysis Consultation to understand your schedule and goals. With my team of experts, you will receive constant support throughout this process. We are detail-oriented and work together to ensure nothing falls through the cracks, staying up-to-date on paperwork, deadlines and more. We work collaboratively, with at least two agents guaranteed on every listing. With an interior designer on our team, we provide a free staging consultation to every listing client. Also, I am fluent in Vietnamese and English.
My team and I believe in providing excellent service to everyone from every background, ensuring that nothing is lost in translation. Going above and beyond with creative marketing methods, including garage sales which we orchestrate ourselves, and providing regular client appreciation events, we stay an active part of our community. We believe in changing lives with positive real estate experiences. Once the transaction is over, I will continue serving your needs as your lifelong REALTOR® and friend.
