History

With roots dating back to 1960, Success Realty & Insurance was built on a tradition of hard work, commitment and trust

Success Realty & Insurance Ltd. had humble beginnings when it opened its doors more than 60 years ago in Vancouver’s Chinatown. A young Asian female business entrepreneur named Edna May Eng founded the company, with her husband Jack Lim Eng, in 1960, at a time when there were very few Chinese realtors in Vancouver.

 

Jack was a community builder, business leader, teacher and scholar whose life reads like a history book of the Chinese Canadian toil, triumph and success through the last century. Edna was a pioneer in business and the community, with an unabashed drive to succeed. Rich in history and architecture, Vancouver’s Chinatown was a big part of Edna’s life. She was born and raised in this neighbourhood and worked here most of her life.

The business thrived in the 1960s and 70s as one of the top residential real estate sales offices in the city, selling new homes to the early wave of new Chinese immigrants. Jack was awarded Top 5 Selling Salespeople from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver three times. The business grew to include retail insurance brokerage, property management, residential development and real estate investments. 

Edna was licensed as an agent authorized to sell general insurance and real estate. Her son, Jordan Eng, joined Success Realty & Insurance in 1989 and, together, they oversaw all aspects of the business operation for the next 30 years.

Over the decades, the firm grew by focusing on building a large insurance portfolio and concentrating on expanding the geographical base of its business. 

The company has operated from its current location at 145 Keefer Street (former home of the Sam Kee Company) since 1978, when Success Realty & Insurance purchased and renovated the building. Many original clients became lifelong friends. 

Success Realty & Insurance remains in the family today and celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2020.
