K.C. Lam is not the ordinary Realtor you meet everyday. As a matter of fact, he is unconventional and different. He is an adventurer. 20 years ago when he was studying in Scotland, he even cycled around the Scottish Highlands with his backpack and camera. Later, he came to Eugene, Oregon to continue his education at Univ. of Oregon (UFO?) and transferred to Univ. of Houston in 1983. He finished his accounting degree (Bachelor of Business Administration) in 1986. He earned his CPA candidate status within 1.5 years thereafter.

In the 1st year as a rookie, he closed 1.5 million (prorated); 2nd year, 2.7 million; 3rd year, 5.2 million; 4th year, 7.2 million; 5th year, 9.2 million; and over 10 million thereafter every year. He has been associated with ERA franchise (different offices though) for 7 years. In the last three years with ERA, he was named the #1 agent in sales volume and unit sales in Houston for 3 consecutive years and #1 agent in Texas for 2 consecutive years.
