All things in balance. He’s level-headed and passionate, philosophical and pragmatic, firm and flexible. (Even the martial arts he practices is described as hard and soft.)
Honesty, connection and service. He’d rather have experiences than stuff.
Willowdale. He grew up there and loves the balance between the energetic city centre (Ssam, YK, Nome and Han Ba Tang are favourite haunts) and the quiet residential areas.
Form that follows function. A metaphorical blank page. Neon lights at night.

GETS HIM UP IN THE MORNING:
A 6 a.m. workout and plenty of black coffee.
Let go of the little things; don’t compromise on the things that matter.
THE BACK STORY:
Victor Foo prefers listening to talking. And he believes what you’re going to do matters more than what you have done. Both make writing his bio a unique—and rewarding—challenge.
Victor’s dad dreamed his son would be a doctor. But Victor’s uncle had other plans, whisking his nephew—who was starting a second degree in psychology—off to the U.S. to learn the ins and outs of investment real estate, including the art of negotiation and the science of financial calculations. “Whether they’re multi-unit buildings or single family homes, properties have to make sense financially,” Victor says. “And that depends on individual circumstances, goals and needs. What are you trying to achieve? What do you value?”
Victor is Trust’s neighbourhood specialist for Willowdale, a community he loves for its always-on, high-density core and quiet, luxurious residential periphery. “There’s something for everyone—young professionals, more established families and older adults who want to downsize without leaving the neighbourhood.”
A long-time practitioner of Wing Chun, Victor’s core values—humility, integrity, love, growth, balance, presence, intent, control, ease and flow—once hung on the wall of a martial arts studio he owned with a friend. But with real estate he believes he can have an even bigger impact on people’s lives. “I think of real estate as a platform for me to serve others,” he says. “I help people find what they’re looking for and achieve their dreams. I like doing business in a way that my clients win, and everyone feels good about the outcome.”
