I began my career in real estate due to my experiences in buying and selling homes while being transferred around in the corporate world. Each time, I was disappointed in the different agent's knowledge, service, and follow through. I thought that there was something lacking in the approach of these agents in that none of them really went above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. I thought that if I were in the real estate business, I could really stand out as someone that took that service to a new level. In 1998, I decided to get my real estate license and learn everything I could about the buying and selling of homes to be of the greatest benefit to clients.

Since I began in real estate, I have represented clients in the purchase or sale of over 300 homes. I earned my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) and GRI (Graduate, Realtor Institute) designations, which only about 4% of Realtors have, and cntinually educate myself by attending legal updates, classes of the array of contracts and addendums, marketing forums, and staying ahead by utilizing all the tools that today's technology has to offer. I am also an Accredited Staging Professional, and have the know-how to make your home show it's absoulte best to potential buyers.

What you can expect from me:

Helpful Opinions & Advice
I won't just open the doors of homes, or tell you what you want to hear. I want to give you the benefit of my knowledge of
potential problems, marketing or pricing miscues, neighborhood issues, contractual issues, etc., so you have all the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions.

Communication
I'm extremely attentive to my clients. I return phone calls and emails promptly, and I'm committed to making sure you have a full understanding of all the details throughout your home sale or purchase. No Surprises!

Thoroughness & Professionalism
When I work with a buyer, I am there for every step of the process, from writing up and explaining in detail the purchase offer and all related contract addendums, through the inspection process, the negotiation of any necessary repairs with the seller, and signing your closing paperwork.

If you're looking to sell your home, you can expect me to help you address any needed repairs or upgrades, staging, and other pre-sale concerns, market your home with the highest quality marketing materials and photographs, making sure that every available marketing resource is utilized, While your home is listed, I'll stay in constant communication, with feedback from other agents and potential buyers on their opinions, update you on market and financing issues, and work non-stop towards completing a successful sale.

Integrity
I have no interest in pushing you to do something you don't want. You will never wonder what my agenda is. My only goal is to insure your satisfaction with the handling of your purchase or sale, and giving you the benefit of my experience to make the best decision for your individual situation – even if that means not making a sale.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Orinda, CA.
    Ken came very highly recommended to us as a realtor by my husband’s colleague from the Moraga Orinda Fire Department, who had a great experience hiring Ken to help them sell their condo in Walnut Creek. We’re grateful for the recommendation, and so happy we took his advice and contacted Ken to help us sell our home in Orinda!

    Ken is a true professional and a real pleasure to work with. We found him to be extremely responsive and knowledgeable. Being first-time home sellers, we had lots of questions. He was patient, took the time to explain the process, and was very approachable. Best of all, he’s a “one-stop-shop” – he has a great network of vendors from his years in the business, and he took care of basically everything, from ordering and getting new appliances installed, to arranging for inspections, remodeling and repair work, to staging. He goes out of his way to take care of the details, while remaining rooted in big-picture strategy.

    Ken really streamlined the process to get our house on the market, and for a busy family with a young child, this was invaluable. He’s efficient, dependable, honest, and trustworthy, and his customer service is unparalleled. Many times, he’d respond with, “don’t worry; I’ll get it taken care of.” Music to working parents’ ears!

    Having had the opportunity to work with Ken, we can now see why he came so highly recommended to us, and would happily (and highly) recommend him to others in a heartbeat. We'd give him 10 stars if we could. Thanks so much, Ken!

    Over the years we have sold seven homes, and working with Ken Jacobs was by far the best house-selling experience we have had. He is honest, professional, and knowledgeable. He was always prompt in responding to our questions. We feel very fortunate to have had the benefit of his expertise and assistance.  MoreLess
