Elaine M Kim

Investment Adviser

CalDRE 02086708

Property Type: Multi-Family

Phone: (510) 207-1220


After eight years of property management in Oakland, Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, and Gardena, Elaine Kim transitioned into commercial real estate when she realized she would be able to help more people—in addition to her family—achieve their personal and financial goals. She picked Centennial to work with because their ethos of “people over property” was evident in their achievements.

She has had hands-on experience converting and remodeling multifamily apartments. With a professional background in contracts, marketing, and entrepreneurship, as well as management and apartment ownership, she is well-positioned to guide you into greater returns and fewer headaches.

Elaine graduated from UC Berkeley where she majored in Music and English with collegiate honors. She gets her work ethic from her parents and her self-discipline from a desire to achieve the best results. She has an eye for detail that former coworkers would often call out.

She is married to muralist Dave Young Kim, and they have three children. They reside in South Bay Los Angeles. She loves reading (when she can), singing in classic rock cover bands, and researching ancestry.
