Ell Sean had no idea what he was starting nearly 20 years ago when he bought a four-unit apartment on 10th Street in what was a run-down section of Long Beach. Sean, one of about 125 Cambodians on U.S.-sponsored programs at local California State University campuses in the 1960s, bought the building after deciding to stay in the United States. Later, he bought the house next door and began helping some of his Cambodian colleagues from the universities to find places nearby.
