Constantine Leung | Agents | Nest Property

Constantine Leung
Associate

Constantine has had great opportunity to travel and has travelled a lot at a young age across North America, Asia Pacific and occasionally to Europe. Although born and raised in Hong Kong, Constantine moved to the U.S. for high school and then went on to complete his degree in Liberal Arts at Syracuse University based in New York.

Having spent most of his youth travelling and spending 10 years abroad, nothing ever quite felt like home. This prompted Constantine to move back to Hong Kong to be with his family and friends and for the food, culture and cosmopolitan environment which he so enjoys. In turn, this move peaked his interest in the property market.

Constantine has been business savvy since a young age and was encouraged by his family to get into the business of selling and flipping which to this day still appeals to his sense of work ethic and drive.

In his spare time you can catch Constantine spending time with his friends and his dog or on the basketball court shooting some hoops as he plays in several recreational leagues.
