Great agent, just helped us purchase a beautiful property in Orinda. Lots of advice to help you know what you are getting yourself into and make the right decisions as well as put together really well structured offers to make sure you are as competitive as your price and risk tolerance allows. Also had great recommendations and connections to vendors/contractors for offer/escrow and post purchase fixes which makes the whole process much easier. Highly recommend working with Ken.
Ken represented me in a purchase and he did an amazing job! We had a difficult situation with a former tenant dragging their feet to move out and he communicated with the seller's agent and me constantly until the situation was resolved. Would recommend without hesitation.
Sold a Single Family home
Kenneth was great!! He was knowledgeable and everything we discussed came to fruition. I would wholly recommend him to anyone selling or buying in the bay area.
I can't say any enough about how amazing Ken was as an agent who represented my wife and I during our time working together to find our first home. I say "working" but it felt more like a caring partnership where all of our needs and desires were met from the time we first mentioned to Ken we were interested in buying to the moment he handed my wife and I the keys to our new home. For those of you reading this review that are completely new to the home buying process, I would highly recommend Ken due to a number of reasons, that I'll try to pinpoint 5 big ones in this review.
My wife and I were referred to Ken by our friends and he was the 6th or 7th agent we talked to; most of them were decent but none felt quite right. We liked Ken best as his demeanor was not pushy at all and he seemed knowledgeable about the market we were looking in.
From our initial discussion and in every follow-up meeting, Ken was very attentive to our specific needs. We had very specific criteria in terms of the shape and orientation of the home we wanted to buy, and Ken was very diligent in his research, sending us a lot of houses he had researched that may be close to our criteria. He was super easy to get a hold of at all times, and very patient as we went through open house after open house, some days in heavy rain. Ken was a trooper and trotted through the rare California rain with us with a smile on his face.
Ultimately, after several weeks of searching, Ken ended up sending us a home in a new development complex that fit the exact specifications we were looking for. We ended up purchasing that exact home and are super happy with the decision.
Would recommend Ken to anybody looking for some real estate in the east bay!
First and foremost, I would like to thank Ken for helping with our first home purchase. He is very honest and helpful when we first started this process of looking to purchase. He is very knowledgeable about the market. It was long journey for us to find "the one" but we did find it. Ken was there every steps and more. I would highly recommend Ken and his team to my family and friends that is looking to sell or buy houses.
Ken helped me purchase my forever home. Going through a home buying process is stressful and confusing, however Ken was able to be there throughout the process, answering any questions or concerns no matter how big or small it was. Not only is Ken knowledgeable about the industry, he provides great advice. There were a couple higher offers than mine, but with Ken’s connections and structure, he was able to get me the property of my dreams without being the highest offer.
Ken has unparalleled knowledge of the bay area real estate market which you want when it comes to navigating pricing, listing, multiple offers, etc. He is also extremely well connected; I was stunned by the amount of traffic he brought through, as well as his strategy for employing his wealth of contacts including both prospective buyers and fellow agents. He is knowledgeable of the process of selling, and made it very easy for me to move from step to step. He is available and responsive, he was friendly and professional with any questions I had, and gave his recommendations and experience without being pushy. I'd recommend him to anyone, and would personally work with him again.
Ken is the realtor you want representing you. In my case, he sold my condo: quickly, painlessly, and profitably! His approach for selling my condo was very top of the line: he uses a great professional photographer, a fantastic home cleaning service, beautifully curated staging, etc. It made a HUGE impact, everyone who saw my condo was stunned, and the results were clear, the home sold FAST.
Ken and his team were awesome through the whole process from beginning to end. We needed some last minute fixes and he was loaded with information and helpful advice. Always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had during the whole process. Ken knew that this was a difficult decision for us to make since we have lived in this house and raised our family for the last 30+ years. From the professional pictures to the staging it was a fantastic experience made easy. I would highly recommend him for any real estate transaction.
Ken helped us navigate through a purchase and sale at the same time with amazing results. Even the smoothest real estate transactions have their speed bumps, but Ken is the type of agent where once you have this inkling in your head that "I should call Ken about this" and pick up the phone, he's already texted you about it or contacted the right people trying to find answers. I consider myself a prudent and informed buyer/seller but it always felt like Ken was one step ahead. I couldn't have found a better agent to work with for both my purchase and sale.
Ken just recently helped us sell our home, from start to finish he was there to
answer any questions we had. Thanks to Ken we sold for a neighborhood
record. would definitely recommend if you are looking to get the most of your
home sale.
Dinh knew exactly how to help us market our mother's home for the best
results. She was thoughtful and capable of handling every issue that came up
which was especially important since we were working with her from out of
state. She dealt with the estate sale, clean up, made suggestions to better
show off the house. She dealt with any contracting needed. She was the ideal
agent. She kept us informed of how the process was going. She was easy to
reach. We were fortunate to have had her as our agent because she went
above and beyond what we had expected. We had a very positive experience
selling the house thanks to Dinh.

To start my wife and I could not have asked for a better real estate professional
than Kenneth Er. From our first appointment to meet and great to the final
closing of our home, outstanding. The knowledge impressive the responsiveness
to any and all concerns we had excellent and his professional team members
top of the line.
Kenneth help my wife and I purchased our first home. He made the buying
experience a lot easier by always being available whenever we have any
questions. His knowledge and expertise in the field was especially helpful as he
was able to give us recommendations and advice. I would definitely
recommend Kenneth and his team to anyone who is a first time buyer or
looking to sell.
My husband and I have been blessed to buy our first home this past August
with Ken in this crazy-priced challenging Bay Area market. Ken’s name came
recommended to us by a handful of close friends, and we could not have been
more satisfied or lucky to work with someone who is personable, professional,
patient, practical, and knowledgeable. He is incredibly generous with his time,
including mornings, evenings, and weekends. He promptly answered all of our
numerous texts and emails, especially during the house bids and closing paper
work period. He connected us to a much better mortgage loan officer when our
first one quoted us too high of a rate and had some questionable practices. Our
house closing period was within three weeks of our wedding date! Ken and his
team were on of top of it to help make the buying and paperwork process go
smoothly and on time so that we didn’t have unnecessary added stress during
our wedding day and honeymoon. He knows his stuff and can give you good
estimates of how much things will cost or go for and how long processes will
take in the housing market. All in all, we highly recommend Ken if you are look
for a real estate agent.
Ken is very experienced, well-connected, and highly informed in all areas of bay
area real estate. He recently represented me in the selling of my condo, and did
a stellar job. He guided me through the process, taking care of details and
allowing me really sit back as much as possible. I appreciate that he brings a
wealth of connections not only in prospective buyers, but in existing
relationships with other agents. His recommendations are all top of the line,
from staging to photography, I was extremely impressed with how high end he
made my home look. His expertise is what you want, he's available, responsive,
and extremely friendly for any questions, and will give his professional opinion
without being pushy. I'd use Ken again and again, and recommend him to
anyone needing representation buying or selling.
Bought a Single Family home
Ken was our buying agent and was amazing. Very diligent, super responsive, and had good knowledge of the areas we focused on. He went above and beyond to find a Home suitable for our picky criteria.
Ken was an enormous help to us in our home buying process. He was extremely patient, well prepared, and knowledgable. Even after our purchase was completed, Ken helped us look for and find vendors to make various improvements on the home in a short timeframe before we moved in. Buying a home in the Bay Area can be a stressful process, but Ken made our purchase very easy. I would absolutely recommend him.
My husband and I recently moved up from Los Angeles and were looking to purchase a home for our growing family. Needless to say, we were completely overwhelmed by the Bay Area real estate market. A mutual friend recommended Ken to us and we could not be happier that we were put in touch. He is knowledgeable about the home-buying process, is punctual and professional, and is incredibly attentive to the last detail. He was responsive in answering our questions (and we had a lot of them) and helped us to feel like we were in control of the process throughout. We knew that Ken was working with a lot of clients at any given time, but he always made us feel like we were a top priority. It's a testament to how dedicated and hardworking he is for his clients. I would not hesitate a second before recommending Ken to anyone that needs a real estate agent.
My wife and I used Ken to help us source and buy an investment condo. He was simply unbelievably good. He helped us find the perfect fixer. He helped us with finding contractors and even helped us with sourcing materials for the work--finishes, cabinets etc. I have never met someone who went so far out of his way to help us AFTER the purchase. He is truly a one-of-a-kind professional. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone. No body goes out of their way like he does, Simply extraordinary.
Sold a Single Family home
Ken and his team helped us a sell our home in Oakland recently. From the first conversation, to closing, and even now, he has been in touch every step of the way. He suggested things we could do to help our home appeal to more buyers, got the bids, and even managed the contractors.

When it was all said and done, we received multiple offers and sold for $200k higher than our dream price! We would not hesitate Ken and his team to sell or buy a home in the East Bay. 5 stars all the way!!
Sold a Townhouse home
Ken helped us sell our Hayward townhouse for top dollar. He made some suggestions for small renovations that would help us increase the value of our home - which proved true in the number and quality of offers we received. Ken has been very responsive throughout the selling process- even while he was on vacation! We felt that he was always fair and honest, even if we disagreed on a strategy or other detail. We were able to come to consensus and make decisions as team. I trust Ken's knowledge of the area and recommend him to anyone who wants to get top dollar for their home.
