This summer, the International Group was honored to receive the Golden Eagle Award for commercial real estate in Houston from the Golden Eagle Real Estate Alliance (AGEEA). The AGEEA members are primarily entrepreneurs from the U.S., China, Korea and Singapore from a variety of real estate-related industries that include finance, development and technology. The organization provides both a platform and network for Asian-American and especially Chinese-American investors to connect with U.S. commercial real estate experts and resources.

The Golden Eagle Awards ceremony was attended by around 1,000 investors and professionals and featured Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Congressman Al Green and AGEEA leaders including the very influential Southwest Realty Group Chairman Kenneth Li and IBMG Group Chairman and CEO Jacky Li. Both are business leaders and have played a large role within the China General Chamber of Commerce and the Asian Real Estate Association of America.  Younger Partners and its International Group were recognized and honored for service excellence in commercial real estate.

The awards recognized local and international real estate professionals and developers with the added goal of attracting additional real estate resources from China and other overseas markets to the Texas real estate market. We were incredibly flattered to get this recognition for our International Group as the Golden Eagle Top Brokerage and Property Management Company. Nan and Elaine were honored as Golden Eagle Top Agents and Sam was presented the Golden Eagle Real Estate Outstanding Service Award. “It was very humbling as Nan, Elaine and I have focused our time and energy on growing this platform for Younger Partners,” Sam says.
