I met Ken initially when I was just thinking about purchasing in the area. After picking his brain about the local markets I realized it was time to buy. This was my first home purchase, but Ken was there to help guide me through the entire process. I feel like the event would have much more overwhelming if I didn't have such a great realtor looking out for me. The Cranes are top notch and the best in the biz!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.375M in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
Ken was amazing and Colleen was an absolute delight! Not only did they find me my dream home but we got it before it was even on the market a day! With how the real estate work is changing today you need a fast acting earlier who can get it done. Ken is the man for that! Don't waste yor time even looking at anyone else or you might miss out on your dream home.

Ken and Colleen were a pleasure to work with. Ken has very detailed understanding of the local market. His follow up was always timely and attention to detail was very good. We were able to maximize the sell of our home. I recommend the Crane's and suggest you give them a call.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Mission Viejo, CA.
Ken and Colleen helped my wife and me get into home when the market was extremely competitive. Ken was extremely professional and helpful. He helped us get out of our lease on our apartment and got us into our home quickly and easily. I look forward to working with Ken and Colleen when we sell our current home and buy our next one.

I have known Ken through our mutual involvement in little league baseball for well over five years now. He has been a dedicated and thoughtful volunteer first as the president of a local league and then as an important member of the district staff. Towards the beginning of his career in residential real estate, we asked him for advice on marketing my fathers home in Carlsbad, CA and based on his expertise and guidance, we gave him the listing. Ken carefully walked us through the entire process in my capacity as POA for my father and we were able to liquidate the single family residence at a market value very satisfactory to my ailing father.
About a year or so thereafter (2012), we suffered through a difficult experience with a rental property in Mission Viejo, CA and came to the decision so sell that property after extensive refurbishment efforts and costs. Based on our past experience, Ken was our selection for the listing agent once again. Ken handled the paperwork and advised us on pricing and other marketing strategies with insight and professionalism. As I recall, we entertained numerous offers and were able to sell the property in a relative short time frame at nearly the price we were asking for initially. We would highly recommend Ken to anyone interested in a real estate transaction within the greater southern California area without hesitation and with sincerity. Kevin and Angela Moran
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.1M in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
I met Ken at an open house a number of months ago and I was impressed with his knowledge of the local market. With Ken's help, I was able to purchase a nice home at a great price. He definitely worked hard to make the purchase a great experience. Even after the purchase, I have called Ken and he has helped me with timely advise and/or recommendation(s) for tradesman.
Bottom line, I highly recommend Ken Crane..... Thank You! Bill B.
Very nice man. Very professional but low key. Does his job and does it better than most. In our experience I would recommend Ken to anyone who wants a fair, hard working, does what he says, hand shake means something, guy who listens and follow through. If not he phones. In our circle he is valued..
They made me feel like family and if I ever move back to the area, I would use no one else to find a home. Once I knew I was being transferred for work, it took only 1 month from putting it on the market to close. I was really pleased. Once Ken put it on the market, we had interest within hours.
Helped me rent a Single Family home in West Park, Irvine, CA.
Ken was very helpful in helping my roommates and I to find a rental property. Before we struggled to find places to accept us. Always having to pay application fees for every place we looked at. Ken did all the application caution submittals and would talk with the property managers. He had a good handful of options and was always willing to work with our schedules to show us properties. He was honest about the houses and his personal thoughts of them. I would highly recommend him for rentals and for looking for a he to purchase. Did I mention we did not have to pay him. Thank you Ken.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
My wife and I met Ken at an Open House in Ladera Ranch in February 2012. That house was smaller than what we were looking for but Ken immediately screened through the available listings and came up with houses that fitted our criteria. He was very patient in taking us to see those house. He never rushed us to make decision and always helped us to put together nice package when we were ready to make offers. As the housing market was heating up and we were not able to compete the cash buyers, we ended up buying a new house in San Juan Capistrano that Ken introduced us to. Ken even volunteered to camp out for us so we were able to be placed at the top of the priority list. Now we are the happiest and proud owners of the new house. Thanks to Ken!! We highly recommend him..
