Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $575K in Walnut Creek, CA.

As a licensed real estate broker myself, I wanted to hire someone I knew to be highly professional and competent. Ken has been highly recommended by other people I know that he has represented on transactions. Ken exceeded my expectations in every regard. His knowledge, timeliness, and expertise impressed me and he took care of every detail of the transaction from start to finish without me having to remind him or ask for anything! I would use Ken again anytime for a real estate transaction and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent real estate agent!

Sold a home in 2014.

I usually keep my opinion to myself and don't do reviews, but I wanted to give my feedback. I first heard about Ken 10 years ago when we bought our first house. He was the seller's agent, I didn't work with him directly. But our transaction went through smoothly and I kept his name in my memory. 10 years later it was time to sell our house and buy a new one, Ken was the first professional I contacted. That may have been one of best decisions for me. He helped us in everything, from renovating our old place to staging, marketing, open houses, negotiations and closing the deal. At the same time he helped us to find our new place. We turned out to be picky buyers (this is not good, that's not good, etc.) but Ken was very patient and kept looking for our best interest. Similar to selling, he was very good, helped us from first step to closing the deal. If and when I'm back to buying/selling real estate, I know to whom to go. I highly recommend Ken, you won't regret working with him.

We have worked with Ken on two separate properties and have found his professionalism and knowledge to be extraordinary and a cut above the others. We trust our properties and know we are in the best hands with Ken. I highly recommend Ken for your real estate needs.

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!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Walnut Creek, CA.

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.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Walnut Creek, CA.

Ken is the ultimate professional who is honest with his clients. He made this process completely effortless and I appreciated all of his help and expertise especially because I was selling my condo while I was located in another state. His follow-thru was excellent and the process went so smoothly. I would very highly recommend Ken.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Pleasant Hill, CA.

Thank you VERY much to Ken! Sylvia and I both want to say how impressed we've been all through this process working with you. In the past 15+ years we've purchased and sold several homes, and worked with Realtors who were good as well as really bad. You were the best and we appreciate all you've done and continue to do.

Property manage a Condo home in Concord, CA.

Ken managed my condo at 1036 Oak Grove Rd. for about 7 years. During that time I had about 4 different tenants. Ken always got good tenants for me and made sure they payed their rent on time and obeyed the CCR's. When a tenant moved out it did'nt take him long to find another. He always kept me well informed by email of what was going on with my property. If something broke he would get someone in there to fix it promptly at a reasonable price. When it came time to sell my condo it only took 5 days for him to sell it. Overall I was very satisfied having Ken manage my property. I felt lucky to have him taking care of my property especially after trying to manage it on my own at first from 800 miles away. I would highly recommend Ken Jacobs to anyone in the Contra Costa Area who is looking for someone to manage their property or to buy or sell. He is a no nonsense guy who works with his clients one on one. No secrataries or a different person everytime you call his office. You deal with Ken all the time.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Martinez, CA.

Ken took me around to the different neighborhoods and helped me identify where I wanted to settle down. Then he showed me different homes in that neighborhood. The home that I settled on needed maintenance and Ken was able to recommend a painter, a cabinet man and a handy man. All of Ken's recommendations were good and repairs were made in a short time. Ken was there for every step of the way including repairs. Ken checked the progress even after closing. This move could have been difficult and stressful, but with Ken's help, it was enjoyable. I would very highly recommend Ken Jacobs to anyone who needs a knowledgeable, helpful real-estate broker.
