License #: 01751969 Throughout his storied career in real estate development, mortgage finance and marketing, Angel Kou has earned a stellar reputation among his clients and colleagues. A dedicated advocate and savvy negotiator, he enhances every transaction and relationship with his extensive knowledge of the Los Angeles market, passion for architecture and natural ability to connect with people.
Angel works out of The Agency’s flagship office, serving Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Holmby Hills, Hollywood Hills, Hollywood and West Hollywood. His integrity, discretion and specialization in luxury real estate and spec development has made him a powerful ally to numerous high-profile and ultra-high-net-worth individuals looking to relocate or invest, including members of the royal families, CEOs, developers and celebrities.
Born and raised in Southern California, Angel studied business in college and has a background in directing music videos–experience that now helps him in creating content to market properties. He launched his real estate career in 2004 as an investor in a residential development project. He walked into a meeting to obtain construction financing and impressed the potential lender so much with his ambition and no-nonsense approach that he walked out with a job offer.
After gaining critical experience in managing loans, Angel earned his license in 2006 and founded his own full-service real estate and mortgage brokerage. However, this venture took him away from what he truly loved–-collaborating directly with clients and advocating for their best interests in one of the most important decisions of their lives. He returned to representation full-time in 2009.
Outside of real estate, Angel can usually be found spending time with his family. He also enjoys playing golf, tennis, practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu and managing numerous home renovations and developments, which has led to many invaluable contacts throughout the L.A. real estate community.
