More about Calvin Kam

First and foremost, I am a proud, native San Franciscan. Having lived here all my life, I can attest to the beauty and appeal of Bay Area living. The real estate roots run deep in my family as I learned the trade from my mother who worked for Coldwell Banker for over 28 years. I attended the University of California, Davis and received my B.A. in Communication with a minor in History. I began my real estate career in 2010 with Coldwell Banker at the same office I worked in as an assistant in high school. Prior to joining Compass in 2018, I was a part of Coldwell Banker's International President's Elite which ranks me in the top 2% of Coldwell Banker agents internationally. I've been blessed to have built my entire business almost solely on repeat clients and referrals. As a trusted advisor, I am here to listen to your needs and devise a strategic plan to attain those goals while ...

    • "Calvin is very thorough, thoughtful and knowledgeable. He has excellent interpersonal skills that are the key to getting the deal done. He is also great with customer service and follows up on every detail to make sure the transaction closes seamlessly."

      - Crystal M.
    • "Great, very responsive, very knowledgeable, and super realistic."

      - Jordan W. & Esther F.
    • "Although the process seemed like a life time for us, we had only knew Calvin for a little over two months from our initial meeting to closing on our home. Calvin was extremely professional throughout the process.We were originally working with another real estate agent prior to meeting Calvin. We became extremely bothered by the lack of communication and guidance with our old agent. We are so glad we decided to switch real estate agents because Calvin provided us with guidance throughout the entire process and was extremely responsive. It was a pleasure working with Calvin."

      - Kathy T. & David T.
    • "We credit Calvin with a smooth, stress-free home-selling experience. This is our first sale of property. We had such a pleasurable experience that we will hire Calvin again for future transactions. Calvin is savvy, personable, and knows the market inside and out.We never would have received such a generous offer on our home without him.To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Calvin and his expertise and we recommend him to everyone."

      - The Lopez Family
    • "I was looking for a real estate agent to sell my San Mateo home. My friends recommended Mr. Calvin Kam and upon meeting Calvin, I was very impressed by his professional manner and knowledge of the market. Calvin was critical in helping me achieve my goal. He has a very strong business sense and great negotiation skills. He is punctual and returns phone calls promptly. If you are looking for a good real estate agent, choose Calvin Kam!"

      - Klaus W.
    • "Calvin was our agent when we recently sold our house in San Francisco. He was extremely attentive and helpful, guiding us through every step of the process. His advice on how to stage and show the house was critical in helping us get the best offer possible. He was always answering the phone and he was very professional with a friendly manner in dealing with interested buyers. Selling a house and moving to another state can be stressful, even in a strong market like San Francisco. Calvin took the stress out, allowing us to focus on buying our new dream home. We strongly recommend Calvin."

      - Raymond A. & Yelena Y.
    • "When I decided to place my property for sale in San Francisco, I was referred to Calvin and I am so glad I chose him as my real estate agent. My situation is a little unique as I live in New York City, but was selling a condo in San Francisco. He made my property a priority immediately. Calvin took care of all of the preparation of the unit itself. I am very pleased with Calvin and his expertise. This entire process has been stress free and quick, with great results. I would recommend him to anyone who is considering listing their property for sale."

      - Chandni S.
    • "We came to Calvin with a very difficult task of helping us find a new home in Millbrae-Burlingame area and sell our then current home in Daly City which he helped us purchase as well. Ultimately, with Calvin's analysis and negotiation of the offers, we accepted the strongest one that became the highest-priced single family house sold in Daly City and with a buyer who closed the deal within 2 weeks! I practically did not have to divert any attention from my work life while completing these multiple deals, because Calvin always knew the next steps and took care of them for me. It was very easy to trust him to excel in all parts of transaction. We really could not have done it without him."

      - Lamar Z. & Jennifer G.
    • "Calvin Kam is a highly motivated and expert real estate professional who sold our condo as quickly as he predicted and at the price we wanted. He kept us informed every step of the way, with courtesy and levity. We are so pleased with the results!"

      - Tani C.
    • "Calvin is an exceptional agent. His integrity to follow through with multiple tasks, his experience to quickly resolve complex problems and his interpersonal skills with agents, principals and tenants have proven his worth in the industry. As a trustee, I had the responsibility selling and trading-up (1031) and later liquidating several income properties. He represented me on both ends over several years. I have full confidence in his abilities and look forward to the day when I will again work with him. Compass has made a good choice. " -

      - Paul C.
    • "Calvin was an excellent agent who guided me through the entire home- buying process and successfully helped me close the unit where I am living today. He was always available on call whenever I had any questions about a new open house or when I wanted to learn about the general real estate market. He was also incredibly detail-oriented and never dropped the ball on reminding me of any impending deadlines.I was so satisfied with my experience working with Calvin that I referred him to two personal friends and he was able to work with them to help close properties for them as well. Calvin is the best in the industry and I would highly recommend anyone to work with him"

      - Kevin L.
    • "Calvin Kam is one of those rare gems who still believes in the personal touch when doing business, and pays attention to the small interpersonal details as well as the big picture. At no point did we feel unnecessarily rushed or pressured, instead, Calvin was a consistent and generous presence in our lives. (He brought us pastries to our final signing, for goodness sake, and brought us dinner after we'd moved in!) It's clear that Calvin takes the long-view in real estate, which seems to be increasingly scarce in the frenzied San Francisco market. He is interested in building lifelong relationships with his clients, and ensuring that they are happy over the long-run."

      - Amber M. & Abraham S.
    • "It's clear why Calvin has received as many accolades as he has, and absolutely clear to me why my friend recommended him to me. There was never a phone call, text, or email that wasn't returned promptly and thoughtfully. Calvin doesn't look at his work and his business on a transaction by transaction basis but takes a longer term relationship view when it comes to his clients. My positive experience working with Calvin is the reason why I'm writing this letter and is why I've already started referring him to friends of mine. "

      - Nikunj M.
    • " We happen to know that Calvin was working at least 3 or 4 other transactions in parallel to ours, and you'd never know it. He was right there with us every step of the way! We whole heartedly endorse Calvin whether you're on the buy side or sell side of a transaction. His record speaks for itself. We've worked with other agents in the past, but after working with Calvin, we cannot imagine working with anyone else ever again."

      - Shayna K. & Sandeep S.
    • "Calvin made the process as smooth as possible. He also kept in contact through out the whole process. If selling or buying another property I would not hesitate to use his services again."

      - The Mah Family
    • "Calvin is the best agent I have ever met and worked with! He is so professional, smart, kind, considerate, thoughtful, patient and very hard working and dedicated to making sure the clients interest comes first!"

      - Justina L. & Felix Q.
    • "Calvin was professional and pleasant to talk to. Most of all he took everything he did personal and to the best of his ability. I would recommend him to all friends and family."

      - Joshua L. & Lorraine S.
    • "Calvin was AMAZING! Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable, but he is consistently proactive and manages to stay on top of everything all the while having your best interests in mind. Certain agents we've worked with in the past can sometimes feel 'sales-sy' or pushy, but Calvin felt like a true partner through the process. I cannot recommend him enough!"

      - Jeffrey C. & Xindi X.
