About Us

Our Company

Kirin Realty serves a diverse demographic in the DC metro area. We are licensed in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland. The story of Kirin Realty begins with Michael Huang and Leona Chan.

Michael co-founded the Reston/Herndon office of Keller Williams Realty. He graduated from George Washington University. Leona is a licensed realtor and certified public accountant with an MBA from Cornell University. Both have extensive corporate backgrounds with Fortune 100 companies as well as deep real estate experience. They represent a new breed of real estate professionals who possess both real estate expertise and financial acumen.

In 2009, Michael and Leona joined forces to create an independent real estate firm where integrity and quality of service are paramount. They believe that home ownership is more than having a place to live; it’s the key to a secure financial future.

The Kirin Difference

At Kirin Realty, we pride ourselves on our exceptional individualized service and financial integrity. We offer honest assessments and always consider your personal circumstances, requirements and hopes for the future, and educate you every step of the way so you’re comfortable with the decisions you make.

Our intimate market knowledge and in-depth contract and negotiation experience ensures that we achieve the best outcomes for you. Should a transaction prove not to be in the best interest of our client, we will pursue other options −even at a detriment to our commission− to set thing right.

The Meaning Behind Our Name

In Chinese mythology the “Kirin” is the purveyor of good fortune and the protector of the home, and is often placed outside to guard the front entrance.

At Kirin Realty, we are the guardians of your real estate wealth. As our client, you can expect uncompromised expertise and service to help you realize your real estate goals. We hope to exceed your expectations because your satisfaction defines our success.
