Durwin Cheung


Over $100 million Sold

Top 1% Agent Award on Trulia

5 Star Premier Agent on Zillow

2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018 Five Star Real Estate Agent winner by San Francisco Magazine


Durwin has established himself as a #knightagent, with a mission to protect and serve his clients throughout the San Francisco area.


This dedicated mission stemmed from the negative home buying experiences his parents had to go through when he was younger. The real estate agents they hired were either focused on making a commission or did not have their best interest at heart.


Durwin wanted to change that for future home buyers and sellers.


After graduating from UCLA, he completely dedicated himself to becoming an expert in the real estate industry. From showings and inspections to reports and closings, Durwin made sure to understand every aspect of the home buying and selling process. This knowledge has enabled him to continuously deliver the best services to his clients.


So that's what Durwin does. Whether it's in the home buying or selling process, he puts the needs of his clients first and always has their best interest at heart.


"I'm Durwin, your #knightagent, ready to protect and serve you today!"
