Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Iveywood, Oakland, CA.
He is the 2nd realtor that I worked with in purchasing my properties. He worked hard helping me find a property that I'll be happy with and ensuring that I was going to be paying a fair price. What stood out for me was that with my work schedule I'm never sure exactly the time I get off or able to leave to see a house but Kenny was okay with me providing his with short notice to view the properties.
He did have a preferred lender that he likes to use due to the closing ratio he had with them but was willing to work with the lender I choose even though I changed it up right when we got into contract (my fault on that).
But throughout the whole process he was very prompt at getting back to me and ensuring everything went as smoothly as possible! Even if it meant having his team come out to the property to meet with my inspectors and contractors.
The part that stood out the most was that everyone one that assisted me from Michael James Realtor came to meet me at the house when Kenny handed me the keys. Thanks Kenny and Mayury for all your hard work!
Defiantly would be reaching out to you guys when I'm ready for my next property!

I am grateful to have worked with Kenny through one of my biggest life decisions. Thanks to Kenny, my boyfriend and I are now homeowners! Kenny's shows great work ethnics by responding to all of my texts and questions quickly, providing us constant updates, and being with us every step of the way. He will definitely not give up on you. I highly recommend working with Kenny.
"Hard working, will show any number of places to you and makes himself available, knows his stuff, dedicated, gives his opinions and spends the time to help you understand. His relationship with the seller helped us make a preemptive offer averting a bidding war. Kenny also stayed calm through a number of borderline meltdowns by me. His assistance, Mayury is truly his better half.. great team. Redfin gave me a nice credit which helped. Couldn't have asked for more."
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Maxwell Park, Oakland, CA.
Working with this company and Kenny was the single most terrible experience I've had with a real estate company. Kenny represented both me and the buyer, and he just sold me down the drain. He lied to both me and the buyers on several occasions.
He doesn't listen, although he agrees to everything. Kenny is an excellent salesman, he sure sold me a bill of goods. I would never recommend this man nor his firm. I am in the process of writing a letter to the DRE.

As new Homebuyers, we were looking for an agent who is not only experienced, but someone who also is really up to date with what's going on in the market, is easily accessible, honest, sincere and knows all the tricks of the trade. Kenny sure proved to be all that. He was very accommodating with our schedule and was always quick to respond to my calls, emails or texts. He was there for every Open House we wanted to attend to make sure he personally connects with the Listing Agent, which, what we believe, gave us a bit of an advantage amongst the other bidders, as the Listing Agent vividly remembered us and Kenny from the Open House. We had a multi bid scenario and we ultimately got our offer accepted. Kenny and his assistant Mayury were just wonderful in making the process as smooth as possible. Kenny has also the most high tech state of the art programs/software that allow him to do all kinds of market research and make doc signing literally appointment free... We definitely recommend Kenny to anyone looking for a savvy, well rounded Realtor!

Kenny is everything you want in your favorite real estate agent but what stood out most to me is his ability to source information on a home from the various online tools available - almost like information at his finger tips. This made sifting through homes a faster process, and made me find the right property ahead of others. Not only that, he can also do your offers faster, very responsive and all of this means no good home slips through the cracks. I will not hesitate to go back to him for my next purchase or sale. He also knows the east bay market inside out
Showed home in 2012 in Redwood Heights, Oakland, CA 94602.
Kenny worked with us for almost a full year, 6 offers, and finally we're closing on a house!
I agree with the other reviews here - Kenny knows his stuff, takes great care of his clients, has a huge amount of integrity, and wants to get you in the the RIGHT home. Not only is he aware of what's going on in Oakland, but in real estate across the country, special programs offered by different banks, and has a blog with good posts.
You never get the sense that Kenny's out just to make a fortune in real estate. It's clear that he very much enjoys his work, and you can't buy that kind of authenticity. I'd highly recommend him.

Kenny Truong is one of the most professional realtors ive known. It was a pleassure working with him. Kenny Truong conducted a lengthy home search on our behalf. He listened to our needs, sent us numerous listings for our review and followed up on our questions and concerns. This was our first home purchase. When we found our house, Kenny coordinated all of our home inspections and professionally represented us.
He was always there for us and kept us informed. He is very knowledgeable about Real Estate and did a great job. We will use kenny in the future as well as recommending his services to others. It isn't often that you meet someone as enthusiastic about there work as Kenny Truong.

Kenny is the most responsive and available agent you'll ever meet. It could be 7am or 11pm. He's available on the phone, text, email, or gchat.
This guy knows neighborhoods street by street and any previous transactions in the area off the top of his head. He took me to over 30 homes and he must have already bought or sold a home in each surrounding area.
Most realtors are average, but when you're looking to win deals you need way better than that. Kenny is 10x more efficient, knowledgeable, passionate and hardworking than any realtor a friend or family member referred you to.
After working with a few agents earlier, I realized Kenny was a good match for my first home purchase. He listened and understood my needs and wants and always made time to show prospective homes around my schedule. I liked his positive attitude, passion and aggressiveness when needed. It was fortunate in my case that he is an expert with short-sales and REOs and professional during a complicated closing process. I would highly recommend him to family and friends and will contact him again for my future real estate needs.
