Early in her career, Ava impressively rose to the Top 2% of San Francisco Real Estate agents. Ava Chang is unmatched when it comes negotiating and marketing for her clients. Ava draws heavily on her financial acumen honed first as a CPA with Deloitte and later as a Product Director at Visa Inc., the global payments leader.
