    Paul Hwang was born in 1968, the Chinese astrological year of the Monkey, to immigrant graduate school parents from China searching for the American dream. Paul was named after his hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota! Paul's baby sister Sheila (almost Minnie after Minneapolis) is a Professor of English Literature in the Midwest. His mother, Mary, was a mathematician and computer scientist working at Singer and Control Data working on the earliest computer operating systems. His father, Edward, a nuclear physicist, had an opportunity to work at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and the family moved to California in the 1970s. The family settled in San Ramon, where Paul attended elementary, middle and High School. He continued his education at the University of California at Davis.

    After graduation he was named on a couple of patents while working in the Pharmaceutical and Information Technology Industries. During this period he acquired a few properties and was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take some time off from work. Paul met the love of his life Judy, and soon they were married. It immediately became apparent that this "Man of Leisure" stuff was not going to fly with Judy; not a good example for his three children. Paul's mother, father and Uncle encouraged him to pursue Real Estate, which he always loved, but felt realtors were mostly annoying and basically useless. After working for a year at Prudential, he decided he wanted to focus on cool stuff; Downtown High-Rises in San Francisco! One of the properties Judy and Paul owned was a ground floor commercial space in the middle of South Beach, San Francisco's New High-Rise Condo neighborhood. Skybox Realty was born!

    Since 2006, Paul has been Ranked the #1 Agent in South Beach, selling more units and completing more transactions than anyone! Along the way he has consistently set New Price Sales Records year over year and has a proven historical track record of the highest performance. Paul's latest project is building a new fully interactive Sales Gallery that will showcase all the high rise residential buildings in South Beach.

    Sold a home in 2014.

    I hired Paul Hwang as the listing agent for my condo at the Infinity in SOMA. Paul is very knowledgeable about the SF real estate market and his professional advice throughout the process (everything from staging to contract negotiations) exceeded my expectations. Paul and his team were very responsive and treated me as if I was Skybox's only client. It was apparent from my dealings with Paul that he had a genuine interest in identifying what my needs were for the transaction and then meeting them, rather than just making another commission check. In the end, Paul was able to sell my condo for an all-time record high price for a 2 bedroom unit within the building. I would recommend Paul Hwang and Skybox Realty for your real estate needs without hesitation and look forward to working with them again in the future.  More Less

    Sold a home in 2014.

    Paul is indisputably the most experienced broker (sell or buy-side) at the Infinity in San Francisco. And a very good, ballsy price-setter and negotiator. At the end of the day, a broker/salesperson is easy to rate-- do they get the deal done on good terms-- and so its easy to give Paul top marks everywhere.

    My experience with Paul is actually in two stints. When we weren't able to sell my property one year, he was able to get it rented at a good price for a year, and listed it again on the same terms the following year. So he not only got full price in the end, it wasn't a financial strain on me in the process.

    Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $2.325M in South Beach, San Francisco, CA.

    I have sold many homes in my life and Paul Hwang is the best I've ever dealt with. His advice and responsiveness are unsurpassed. He kept me very informed after every showing (and I had many showings). I was delighted with my ultimate sale and how he handled the transaction. He went above and beyond in every way and his staff did the same creating great marketing brochures to help with my sale--even the sale of my furnishings. I would recommend Paul and his team without reservation.  More Less
