John Tsai has received numerous accolades, including the Diamond Master Medallion Club Award (2010-2018), and the President’s Club Award (2015-2018). Reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad lead him to launch his real estate career in 2006. Day by day, John puts his clients first, endeavouring to find homebuyers their dream home and to provide home sellers the highest possible return on their investment.
John moved to the Lower Mainland from Taiwan as a young child and was raised in Vancouver and Burnaby. He now lives on Beach Crescent and enjoys his proximity to the water (and waterfront view), as well as his five-minute commute to his office space in Gastown. His goals for the future include building a team that manages 400 transactions a year, creating a rental-property portfolio, becoming an author, and giving back by through charitable contribution and by inspiring other Realtors. It’s no surprise that John grew up dreaming about building high rises.
John’s guilty pleasures are his daily visits to Facebook and Instagram—“It’s an addiction,” he says—and he cites Terminator as the movie that’s most inspired him, because “he’s indestructible. He just keeps coming back until he’s achieved his goal.”

Jeff Kang joined The John Tsai Group in 2018, and is passionate about meeting others to support their unique real estate objectives and goals. For Jeff, community is a space that is no longer contained. Rather, community is anywhere where a diverse group of people bond together under a common umbrella; whether it be where you live or where you work. The most rewarding part of his job is when he gets to hand over the keys to a place that can now be called a home.
Born in Korea and raised in Burnaby, Jeff regularly seeks personal growth and knowledge about the industry. He starts his mornings off with a warm shower and a balanced breakfast before heading off to support his clients. Outside of work, Jeff has a keen interest in playing with electronics, including dismantling and putting together computers and audio devices.
On his coffee table, a book about Genghis Khan, a PS4 and a pair of Nintendo Switch Controllers can be found. His perfect meal involves a half neutral, half spicy hot pot filled with the freshest meat and vegetables.
