Ken helped us purchase a home in the Walnut Creek area. As with most home purchase or sale transactions, there are multiple decision points along the way that require an evaluation and a decision. Ken is simply one of the best Real Estate Broker or Agents that I have ever met at providing input based on experience that helps you make those decisions. He knows Walnut Creek and the surrounding area extremely well is always on top of market behavior and has high-level contacts with all of the local agencies and mortgage brokers. Starting with the initial search, evaluating the positive or negatives of particular properties, choosing and selecting inspections and which inspectors to use, negotiating price and other aspects to include in the offer, etc. The list goes on but Ken made both myself and my wife comfortable with the decisions we were making based on taking all the factors into account. In reality that is a good agent's most important job, to help you gain knowledge, information, and experience to make decisions on what you want. Additionally, our transaction had a couple of challenging aspects that required tactful, and careful discussion and negotiation with the sellers and their agents. This is where Ken shines, he always takes a long-term view and stays calm, cool, and collected when discussing issues or problems. This is one of the talents of the best agents to keep everyone involved from getting emotional and focus on the result we are all trying to get to in a real estate transaction. I am the kind of person who is extremely careful about recommendations and don't do them very often. I can without reservation recommend you use Ken for any type of real estate transaction and I am confident you will come away feeling you made the right decision. It was so refreshing to work with someone who enjoys their work, is highly skillful at it, and on a personal level is easy to work with and humble about it. If you are evaluating agents to represent you, I highly recommend you call Ken before making your final decision.

I contracted with Ken to be a listing agent on a Walnut Creek townhome because of his years of experience and local knowledge. He efficiently evaluated the repairs and cosmetic work required to market the property, and he arranged for all the various service providers to complete that work. His estimates for cost and timetable for this work were realistic. Once the property became an active listing on the MLS, he regularly informed me of the status, and after I had accepted an offer, he kept me advised of the status of the transaction. From my viewpoint, the sale went smoothly, and what "hiccups" we encountered Ken handled with knowledge and calm. I recommend him highly.

I don't normally write reviews for anything online, but Ken is truly an amazing broker. This was the largest and most important financial transaction of my life, and having Ken walk me through it was unbelievably helpful and reassuring. Ken helped my wife and me buy our first home. He was very low pressure - we first met him a year before we ended up buying and had a nice chat, but at the time we were not ready. We didn't get a lot of junk mail from him, or other high-pressure tactics. When we came back he was happy to help. He seems to have been around for a long time. He knows a lot about the local market, and he knows a lot of people that can make the whole process easier. He was able to put us in touch with trades to get estimates on repairs before we bought (our place needed a new furnace and windows, and the estimates we got through Ken's guys were right on). The closing process will never be easy, but Ken made it as painless as possible. He is incredibly responsive and detail-oriented. I hope not to buy a house again for many years, but if I did I would use Ken again in an instant.

After having past bad experiences with bad consequences during the economic downturn, we were very worried about getting ourselves into the real estate market again. Ken was constantly listing homes around the neighborhoods we were interested and we met him during an open house last November. We met him at a couple of different open houses, the latest which we decided to put an offer. Although he was the listing agent, his professionalism, attention, and knowledge made us decide to use him as our agent as well. He was very professional, respecting both our and the seller's interests, and never "pushed" us on making a higher offer. He was rather very informative about the latest sales and let us decide on all the terms of the offer. He kept the whole transaction very transparent and I am happy to say, this was by far the smoothest real estate transaction I have been at! I highly recommend his services and I will definitely use him again if I ever decide to buy or sell real estate in the future!

Ken guided me and my family through the renovation and sale of our father's townhouse in Walnut Creek with quiet expertise. His staff and crew are top-notch, and the marketing of our property was impressive. One open house, five offers, sold for over asking price. That pretty much tells the story. We couldn't be happier with our experience with Ken Jacobs and Clocktower Realty.

When it came time to list our townhome in the Rancho Dorado HOA in Walnut Creek, there was no question as to which real estate agent to use - Ken Jacobs is The Man for properties in that area. He is very organized, extremely prompt with communication, and knows exactly what needs to be done to show a property at its best. He coordinated all the repairs, cleaning, and improvement needed to bring our property up to sale standard after having been a rental and kept us abreast of all the details. He knows the market very well and with his guidance we sold the property for much more than we had expected. In addition, he has a lot of familiarity working with the Rancho Dorado HOA, which is always helpful when trying to buy or sell a property with HOA governance.

Ken helped us sell our old house and purchase a new one in Walnut Creek or Concord area. He was immensely helpful in a very stressful process and made it as seamless as possible. He was always prompt to respond to any questions we had, was very thorough with paperwork and organizing contractor work. We had full confidence that he was doing everything to help us achieve our goals. If we ever need a real estate agent again, Ken will be the first person we will call.

I have seen Ken's signs pop up in my neighborhood frequently over the past 15 yrs, and decided to give him a call when I was ready to sell my townhouse. He was very prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. This was the first time I have ever had to sell a property and Ken was endlessly patient and supportive, explaining what everything meant and what options I had. Because Ken works in both home sales and purchases, I felt confident that everything would be handled properly (and it was). The entire process took only 3 months (mid-Dec-mid Mar) and included some fairly large renovations. Ken has an excellent team and they work well together. There were no surprises in costs and I got $30,000 above the asking price! I couldn't be happier-Thanks Ken!
