"My wife and I bought the house of our dreams with Ken's help in a very competitive market. We loved Ken's service and have since then become good friends with Ken. We later recommended Ken to our family and co-workers. Several of them have purchased their home through Ken. Ken is extremely capable, responsive, and honest. He is by far the best real estate professional I know."Kai Xu - VP Product Management at Medallia, Inc.
"Ken has helped me buy two houses and sell one of them. I highly doubt that any of that would have occurred without his assistance. He is the best on the Peninsula because he sees success where others see a broken deal. His value goes beyond just being a broker as his contacts for construction, mortgages, etc. are first-class. I will always work with Ken because he is a true business partner and not just a real estate agent."Kevin Melia - CFO at Storm Ventures
“DeLeon Realty and Ken Deleon are THE best!!! …Most agents do a little stitched panorama shot of your place and make a one-page flyer and list on MLS and the popular real estate websites. DeLeon went way way above this…I cannot recommend them highly enough”

“Ken DeLeon has such great ratings on Yelp, I thought they were inflated. But since he is the number one agent in the US, I tried him out to sell my hard to sell my home in Los Altos that another top agent in Los Altos couldn't sell the month before at a decent price…Unlike the previous attempt by the other agent, Ken delivered many multiple offers, and he expertly and quickly negotiated a deal that suited the buyer and myself…I have absolutely no complaint, a truly outstanding performance, and fully deserved FIVE star rating. Ken's team and he himself are great to work with and highly recommended for mid-peninsula real-estate transactions.”

“He can make any craptastic home look like a home I would want to give my life savings for. He either has a kickass interior designer or he is a good designer himself…To top it off, he usually has a open bar/food at his open houses :) ….”

"Ken represented us on the sale of our house in Palo Alto and on the purchase of our new home in Belmont. His service was excellent. On the sell side, he gave excellent advice regarding the timing of our sale as well as the appropriate strategy for staging and touch-up. Ken has a network of service providers that includes painters, cleaners, handymen, photographers, and others. His office manages all of the details of scheduling those resources and monitoring their work. On the buy side, he advised us on the findings of inspections, and helped craft our offer. We were totally satisfied by Ken's performance and would willingly use him again."

“My advice to you if you desire the best agent to help you sell or buy your home: Run, do not walk, to Ken's office…Ken is a unique agent, a truly "good person" who will always keep your interests paramount. In addition, he is a genius. He has that rare combination of analytic skills and emotional intelligence that enables him to get the best deal for you and treat you as a human being (not a transaction) in the process.”

"After interviewing six to seven realtors, we selected Ken to represent us when we sold our home in Menlo Park. He went far beyond our expectations in marketing our property, handling the negotiations and ensuring the deal was finalized in our best interest. I have no hesitation in recommending Ken to either buyer or seller. He's honest, professional, efficient and a pleasure to work with."

I used Ken and Kim for my search for homes in Palo Alto. I was very impressed with their knowledge of the Palo Alto area, including the positives and negatives of the different subdivisions and the fair prices for houses on the market. That kind of knowledge is invaluable for prospective buyers. They were also very responsive and professional. In the end, though, I ended up buying a new house that I had visited prior to contacting Ken, and hence they did not get the referral fee. I felt really bad and tried to get them the fee, to no avail. Ken and his team were very courteous even through all that, and even offered to help me out though they would not get the fee. True professionals. I would love to work with them again in the future.

Amazing, amazing, amazing!…Ken did a thorough analysis of the neighborhood and got us a precise estimate of the offer price. When it was the day for the offer, Ken played everything perfectly and finally won the house by just a razor-thin margin compared with the other parties! We were so happy that my husband called him a magician!…
