This is definitely a tricky one as most people won't feel comfortable answering honestly. There is a local Seventh Day Adventist church in the area that has a large Korean constituency, so you might consider checking with them.

Stephan is right on. I only recognize human beings---not races. I know you are not being racist in preference but we licensees have to be very careful about that. I dont even want to advise on how you would go about that on your own. Good luck though!

I'd go to a Korean restaurant and ask around. In most of them, many of the patrons are local Koreans as well as the staff. They'll know where other Koreans are living. Another possibility would be a Korean church.

I agree with the previous mention that per Fair-Housing-Regulations, real estate agents cannot answer questions which could be considered "steering". However, if such things as ethnic make up of a neighborhood are of concern to you, do an online search according to your criteria.

Once you have identified a particular area of interest, then real estate agents can help you find available homes in that area.

I'm sorry but real estate agents are not supposed to answer questions like that (Fair Housing Act). I can be considered "steering."
