Atlanta, Ga. (April 19, 2016) - Judy Chin of Lawrenceville, Ga. was promoted to managing broker of Crye-Leike Real Estate Services' Norcross branch office, located in northeast Atlanta at 4870 Peachtree Industrial Blvd. Currently holding a broker's license, she previously served as Crye-Leike's office administrator for the past five years.

Chin is responsible for managing a sales force of over 45 Crye-Leike sales associates who list and sell residential and commercial real estate in Gwinnett County and the surrounding counties of Barrow, DeKalb, Forsyth, Fulton, Hall, Newton, Rockdale and Walton.

She will continue to help buyers and sellers list and sell their residential properties in the Metro Atlanta area, specializing in new homes and relocation.

"The town of Norcross is beautiful with its history, charm and diversity," said Chin. "Our office is conveniently located between both the city and the suburban lifestyle."

Chin is fluent in Korean and Chinese, which she feels is a benefit in managing her culturally, diversified office.

"I was born in Korea and went to school in Taiwan before coming to the United States.

"With one-third of the agents in my office speaking Korean and Chinese, I am able to overcome that language barrier and help them grow in their real estate business," said Chin.

Chin began dabbling in real estate in 1993 while she was a restaurant owner of Asian Diner for 20 years. She came to know the restaurant business from being around her parents.

"Restaurant business was our family business while growing up," she said. "We were all trained to be a restaurant owner, almost at birth."

And obtaining her college degree in hospitality administration from Georgia State University just made the family all the more proud, she added.

When the economy downturn started to hit in 2008, Chin and her family had to get out of the restaurant business in 2011.

"I have the personality to be in the service industry, so I decided to transition into real estate full time and joined Crye-Leike in 2012," said Chin.

And she hit the ground running. Chin qualified to be a member of Crye-Leikes Multi-Million Dollar Club in 2015, a level of distinction that exemplifies her outstanding sales performance while maintaining a strict code of ethics and professionalism.
