Busan English Speaking Agent

Finding a place to live in Korea can be especially daunting.  Difficulties with language and communication, knowledge of various localities, types of housing, pricing and even knowing where to begin can all be an intimidating and stressful process.  While being a Busan native myself, I have also had the experience of living overseas in a foreign country.  I understand how difficult the house hunting and relocation process can be for those who come to Korea from overseas.  I look forward to working with you to facilitate your move and help make your experience of living in Korea enjoyable and rewarding.

Real Estate Services

As a licensed realtor, I am here to provide a full range of services to help in finding your next place to call home.  My specialty is in serving the real estate needs of the English-speaking foreigner community in the Busan area.  Aside from real estate, I also offer private tours, as well as paid translation services for related business or social situations. 

I typically work with 50 to 100 foreign customers every year and am knowledgeable about the various housing options all over the city that can provide the best match.  I can also provide assistance with relocation services. Please let me know your budget, desired type of housing, type and period of contract, exact move-in date, preferred area in Busan, if you have pets, and any special requests. 

The best time for house hunting is 2 to 3 weeks before your move-in date, as landlords typically do not want their properties vacant for any longer than that.  I have a list of housing for sale or rent throughout the entirety of Busan.  I can help set up private tours and can travel anywhere in the Busan immediate area.  While there is no additional cost for English real estate services, I may require a minimal travel fee in order to cover my travel costs.  Please contact me for more details.


Finding a place to live and signing a contract is only part of the process.  I am not a realtor who disappears after signing a contract.  I believe in establishing an ongoing relationship.  Foreign customers often require continuous help with things such as communicating with landlords, setting up repairs, renewals, etc.  When you sign a contract through me, I will continue to help with these aspects throughout the duration of your contract.  If any dispute arises, I will advocate on your behalf.  Even if you are not my customer, I would be happy to provide counsel to the best of my ability for any questions you may have with your current housing.



Please feel free to contact me through email, phone, or text (Kakaotalk is most preferred).

"Just wanted to let everyone know how amazing the service is with Changwoo from Gold Real Estate.  His English was beyond on point and communication was amazing.  We recently signed a contract for 주택 and he helped us with negotiations and preparing all the material.


If you need help with translations and someone who is honest and clear I would recommend him."

Expats in Busan

"Hello.  Just wanted to make this post to recommend an amazing English speaking realtor in Busan!  Changwoo Yang from Gold Real Estate is so efficient and helpful.  He found me an amazing place, within my budget, in just a couple days.  I found him through a friend of mine, and highly recommend him as well.  I truly don’t think I could’ve found a more helpful realtor!"

Dane Empey

“Mr. Yang helped me find my place in Gwanghali and I’m very happy with the service he provided, his friendly and helpful demeanor, and the new home I’m in.  I heard about him from a couple of friends, and I was more than pleased with my experience with him and his services. 

Highly recommend!!"

Rouxlene Maritz

"Changwoo Yang is absolutely amazing.  He helped my husband and I find a new apartment within 1 day and within our given budget.  His service is amazing and he definitely goes the extra mile for his clients.  150% recommend him."

Aliénor Faure Hamida

"I sincerely recommend him too.  He found me the dream place within a day, in my exact budget, such a good help for the gas application and contact with the landlord.  Seriously if you need a place, give him a call! 


Thank you again  😀"

Aylin CR

“Beyond grateful to have found such an amazing AND supportive realtor for my first move.  After sending him all the required information (expected monthly rent/key deposit/location/lease term/apartment type/move-in date), he worked to find options that suited my style.  As he speaks English, he was the perfect liaison between the landlord and I.  Thanks to him, I obtained a better deal for my apartment.  Even after signing the lease, he’s continuously assisted me with questions I’ve had about the apartment.  He’s simple the best  😀
