Han Widjaja Chen

Han Widjaja Chen, CCIM

Han Widjaja Chen is the founder and president of Growth Investment Group, a commercial real estate investment brokerage company that specializes in multifamily investments in Los Angeles with a focus in the San Gabriel Valley area. He led a successful team of specalized commercial real estate agents that have helped many GIG clients multiply their wealth through apartment sales. As of Q1-2021, his team has sold over $1.373billion of closed transactions. Many active real estate agents/brokers have hired Han’s team to help them sell their apartment properties.

Han’s humble commercial real estate career begins in 2007 with Colliers International. He quickly became the top multifamily agents at Colliers International Los Angeles. After 4-years tenure with Colliers International, Han became one of the principals/ shareholders in 2012 at Lee Associates ISG where he also became #1 multifamily agent at the company. After seeing his clients’ needs for a more responsive and personalized approach to multifamily investments, Han decided to found Growth Investment Group in 2014 in a strategic alliance with KW Commercial in Pasadena. During his partnership with KW Commercial Pasadena, Han once again became #1 multifamily broker in the company.

In order to provide his clients a more entrepreneurial engagement, Han decided to operate GIG as its own company independent from any national franchises affiliation. Since its full inception, GIG has multiplied its client’s net worth through multifamily investments and quickly becoming the top multifamily boutique firm in San Gabriel Valley.

Even though he started his commercial real estate career only about 14 years ago, Han was able to build his own multifamily portfolio in San Gabriel Valley and now offers his clients unique and professional insights of the apartment market, operations, and management as a fellow multifamily investor. His approach of partnering with his clients to maximize their property value to achieve their goals has earned him trusts and continued businesses from his many clients.

Growth Investment Group has ONE core mission: To help our clients grow their capital through multifamily investments
