Alisha Chen is the founder and CEO of Cornerstone Group. Alisha immigrated to the U.S. at the age of eight with her parents and younger brother. She did not set out for a career in real estate, but her customer-service orientation, organization, and focus led her to it; her love and talent for real estate took it from there. In high school and college, she tutored and mentored students at the elementary to high school levels. Later, she held a position as a project manager for a spacecraft company which worked closely with Orbital Science, CalTech, Boeing, JPL, and NASA.

While many of her clients are cash buyers, those who needs a loan had a 95% success rate with Alisha’s lending services. The other 5% has severe/serious inadequacy assessment with high financial risks which investors are unwilling to take. Alisha was able to close escrow within a loan in a HOA community within 14 days.

Alisha escalated her real estate profession to lending and finances then to investments. With years of remodeling experiences, she proceeded to residential and commercial planning & development. She also helped builders such as Lennar to improve their architectural designs to best accommodate client and community needs. Alisha single handedly took Lennar from sitting home inventory to buyer waiting list by her improved designs.  From encountering numerous investment programs, Alisha set out to develop better investment opportunities, better school teaching and training programs, better healthcare products and services.
