Ratings & Reviews

Highly recommended. Very high level of integrity. We bought a house recently with the help of Ron, as well as Anne and Josh Keller. Awesome team. We landed in town on a Tuesday (we are currently living overseas). Two weeks later we had won over multiple bids, including ones higher than us, on a great house. This team operates with complete integrity and transparency. We were in constant communication and got great advice along the way. We really appreciate the level of detail and unselfishness with personal time (we were often on the phone at 10 PM getting ready for the next day).

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $825K in Alameda, CA.

Ron was an absolute life saver. He and his associates at Lawton were wonderful. This home sale was at a very sad and hard time for my family and he took care of everything and in such a timely manor. There were 24 offers on the very first day of open house. It sold for far more than I thought possible. So I highly recommend Ron Kriss and Lawton Associates.  More Less

Sold a home in 2010 in Bushrod, Oakland, CA 94609.

Ron Kriss is a real estate ninja; the more challenges a deal presents, the more he thrives. When we wanted to sell our house in Temescal, back when the market was not as strong as it is now, he showed us exactly what needed to be improved and what didn't. Then through his great staff at Lawton Associates he helped us prepare for the open house quickly and perfectly. When the first buyer couldn't get financing, Ron had a broker's open house ready within a few days and had another buyer lined up in less than a week. He also beautifully orchestrated a complicated deal with a friend's house in lower Rockridge involving a shared lot, two owners, and a difficult financial situation, where another broker said it couldn't be done. Ron's work as a broker and local developer, along with his experience with investor properties, means he's seen every scenario and knows how to make things work. He is busy and if you want someone to privately show you houses every week, he might not be the broker for you. But he'll be there when it counts, dispensing invaluable advice and guiding you through the extremely challenging world of East Bay real estate. He's great to have on your side.  More Less
