Simon Hou

Simon has been entrepreneurial for as long as he can remember. He started his first business in China at the age of 16, and continued to embark on numerous pioneering ventures even during his medical scientist student days at Flinders University.

Toward the end of his medical scientist studies, Simon’s student housing rental business was doing so well that a career in real estate became the logical next step – but not before marrying his doctor wife in 2007.

Simon chalked up extensive experience working at local real estate agencies and property investment companies before establishing DG Real Estate, the first Chinese real estate agency in Adelaide. The business has doubled in size every year since its launch in 2009, an achievement that can be attributed to Simon’s passion, extensive knowledge and excellent service.

Simon’s growing high-end client portfolio includes golf courses, vineyards and CBD development projects. Simon has also established strong relationships with Chinese developers both locally and internationally.

Simon is a well-loved figure within the local Chinese community and serves as:

  • Founding Chairman of the Adelaide Great Wall Football Club
  • Vice President of Chinese Business Network SA
  • Committee Member of Australia-China Young Professionals Initiative
