“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 an open bar/food at his open houses 🙂 ….”

Kenji Y. – Cupertino Resident

“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.”

John F. – Palo Alto Resident

“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.”

I.R. – San Francisco Resident

“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.”

Robert V. – Menlo Park Resident

“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.”

AB – Newton Highlands, MA Resident

“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!”

LI Y. – Palo Alto Resident

“Ken’s service is completely over the top and beyond expectation. After our introduction to Ken, we quickly realized he is the powerhouse broker in the Silicon Valley. Our research, coupled with a glowing recommendation, left us with no doubt that he is the best of the best…Post-sale, Ken’s attentiveness never waned and the extreme customer service continued. He supported us with his in-house staff of specialists, managed the various inspections, and introduced us to his vetted network of contractors. Even now, post-closing, he continues to answer our questions and make his staff available to us, free of charge. We could not be happier with Ken and highly recommend him.”

Matthew C. – Silicon Valley Resident

“My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Ken at an open house. Although we didn’t end up buying that house, we were amazed at how attentive and knowledgeable Ken was. We interviewed a couple of other realtors and decided Ken was the best choice to represent us. Our decision turned out to be the right one. Ken was able to find a great house for us before it was even listed on MLS. He was instrumental in negotiating the deal and working through the close. I am confident we wouldn’t have the house today without him. He is by far the best agent I have ever met and can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Josh B. – Menlo Park Resident

“Ken is representing us on the purchase of a lot in the Portola Valley area and he is the best advisor I ever worked with….he is not only providing the foundational services of any realtor at much higher standards, but also useful information from a financial-planning perspective and estate planning. In summary, if you don’t retain Ken’s services for your next purchase, you will be in a competitively weaker position and will most definitely not strike the best deal!”

Dilettante D. – Palo Alto Resident

“I would say that if you are not using Ken as your agent, you are at a competitive disadvantage in the white-hot real estate market of the Peninsula and Bay Area. Ken got us into Palo Alto when other agents said we probably couldn’t. We are so happy with our new home. Ken is genuine, deeply knowledgeable, super friendly and very patient. It is true that other agents consult him for his opinion – we witnessed this as well. He certainly has an edge with his academic credentials and experience. The more we learned about the guy and his background, the more amazed we were with him, and I think his personal history and his amazing success informs his positive outlook and kind disposition. We never felt pressured by Ken, and he was always generous with his time and his advocacy. We came from the buyer’s side but I also visited his open houses – awesome. Check him out for yourself, then meet him in person; you’ll like him a lot, and it will be worth your while.”

Sir William O. – Baltimore, MD Resident

“Ken was the first agent we met and I knew he was the right one. He is detail-oriented, knows and really loves real estate (he was a lawyer at a large law firm before), and he is quick and never left us hanging. He has true integrity and never put any pressure and never tried to make a fast buck. I knew he was the person we needed to go up to bat for us…he is sharp.”

Suma N. – Redwood City Resident

“Kim represented me on the recent purchase of a single family residence in Foster City.She was a fantastic advocate who not only helped my family find a beautiful new home, but assisted in negotiating a great deal. Kim was exceptionally responsive at every stage of the transaction, enabling me to feel comfortable with what would be the largest financial commitment of my life.The financial terms, both purchase price and loan rates/fees, that Kim helped me obtain exceeded my expectations.Rather than simply push to get a deal done, and thus register a commission, Kim strategized and helped me implement a plan to get the best possible deal.”

Bryant W. – Foster City Resident

“We worked with Kim on our first ever home purchase, and we’re extremely glad that we did. In terms of the bare essentials of the purchase, we had a fairly detailed list of what we wanted in a house and a somewhat limited budget but Kim took our requirements and managed to find something that hit every checkbox on our list and came in under our budget. She then managed to negotiate the price down even further and bring the closing date in way closer than originally planned. But that wasn’t the best part of working with her. Kim understood that this was our first ever home purchase and was very careful to guide us through the whole process and worked directly with all the other parties (mortage broker, insurance company, contractors …) to make things happen right and on time. She was very flexible around our schedule and would arrange meetings where and when worked best for us. We now consider her a friend and are hoping to see her at our house-warming party.”

Uncle F. – San Francisco Resident

“My wife and I just finished working with Ken on the purchase of our first home, and I can say that our experience was exceptional. Ken has a very clear understanding of the Palo Alto/Menlo Park market — from the pros and cons of each street to the most current pricing trends.In a market where multiple offers are the norm, it was incredibly helpful to have Ken quickly orient us on what properties would likely sell for.And I didn’t just take his word for it–over the course of several months, Ken’s projections of the closing price on many properties were dead-on. Even more importantly, Ken always seemed to understand what we needed to make decisions – market comps, renovation ideas, remodeling costs, interest levels on particular houses, or just time for my wife and I to consider the options.We always felt like Ken had our best interests in mind – never pressuring us to make decisions – and always felt supported through the ups and downs of multiple offers.If you want someone who understands both the emotional and financial implications of buying a home and who will truly work with you and for you, work with Ken. Maybe the quickest way to say it is that Ken has the knowledge of an attorney, the instincts of a business person, and the attitude of a true service professional.My wife and I truly enjoyed working with Ken and look forward to partnering with him in the future.”

Steven K. – Menlo Park Resident

“Where to start? Everything Ken did for us was above and beyond our expectations. There are many real estate agents out there….but Ken is seriously different….We sincerely admired Ken’s negotiation skills and his ability to work so effectively at all times. If you work with Ken, you will know why he is successful. It is not luck; it is his genuine hard work, his established relationships and overall professionalism. But above all, he is just a nice guy….”

“Dear Ken, Michael, and all at DeLeon Realty,
Thank you so much for helping us reach our financial goal of $5M. This money will fund the vital programs needed in our schools in the upcoming school year. We are so grateful for your support.”
Palo Alto Unified School District

“We loved working with the DeLeon Team. As first time homebuyers we were nervous and skeptical about the process, especially here in the Bay Area. We had worked with a few other agents before and had little success. From the moment we started working with Kim and Mei, the entire home buying experience changed. They are wonderful agents – professional, knowledgeable, and patient. They earned 100% of our trust with their expert knowledge of the area and the market. Their honesty, reliability, and their consistent high level of customer service are unmatched. Our weekends visiting new homes with Mei were exciting times for us – we looked forward to them all week. When we put in offers, it was a relaxed and seamless experience. The support they provided us pre- and post-purchase was unbelievable! They connected us with high quality lenders, renovation contractors, designers and other support staff. We felt 100 percent taken cared of every step of the way. We HIGHLY recommend working with DeLeon for all real estate needs. They’ve set the bar very high and we know we won’t find another team that can compare. We are customers for life.”
Denise Gamboa and German Gentile

“Mei have been more than wonderful during our condominium buying process and I just want to thank you from bottom of my heart for all the support, professionalism, and courteous service she provided throughout this process. Mei simply exemplify what DeLeon represents: 110 percent devotion and dedication to the clients.”
Ayari T – Santa Clara (Rivermark) resident

“Mei is absolutely amazing to work with. Purchasing real estate can be extremely stressful given that the market here on the Peninsula is on fire and the homes are sold within days of coming onto the market. We’ve worked with multiple other agents in the past and DeLeon Realty Group by FAR has been our favorite. They don’t work on commission so we don’t end up with an agent that’s constantly pressuring us to buy or offer more so that they can get their commission check to ensure the deal is done. Mei took a very objective view and obtained all the information and research for us promptly so that we can make an informed decision. She really took the stress and headache out of this process! She is extremely well-versed in all the various condo and townhome developments in Sunnyvale, Mountain View, and Palo Alto. She consistently gave objective feedback and answered our questions by calling up school districts and sending us links for planned developments. HIGHLY recommend giving her a call if you’re in the market for a condo or townhome!”

“Hi Ken,

My name is Nisarga. My husband, Minal, and I were recently helped by your team in the purchase of our home. We are writing to express our appreciation of them. We worked with two of your brilliant agents Mei Liang and Leanna Scott. They were both truly wonderful in helping us through the whole process. Leanna spent much time with us during the front-end part and did an amazing job of making us understand the market and what we want while Mei closed on our home and did a fabulously efficient job of the back end part of the process including getting us initiated with remodeling. They were both able to instantly establish trust and connect with us which is rare in the real estate industry. We purchased a fixer-upper and are waiting to start remodeling. Curt has been (and continues to be) amazingly helpful during this process. He has been really proactive in finding us a contractor and an engineer (and many other resources) and very generous with his advice. We spent some time with Liling who gave us some great design suggestions, too. Overall, I don’t think we would have had the confidence or the bandwidth to buy a fixer-upper, had it not been for your team. Congratulations on such a fine team and venture!”
Nisarga and Minal

“We were referred to Ken by two of my co-workers. Ken has been able to find good value homes for all of us! Must also thank Leanna also worked late nights and kept us posted-ultimately she’s the one who made it happen! Wanted to express our thanks once again! When I hear stories of friends who are unable to purchase a home in the current market, it still seems incredible that we have been able to buy one within a few months of effort. I guess the feeling would completely sink in when we actually start living in the house. Looking forward to it!”
Rahul and Aanchal

“Dear DeLeon Realty Team,
Professional, prepared, knowledgeable, caring, enthusiastic, visionary, innovative – those are just a few qualities that come to mind when I speak of your firm. Thank you for your life-changing efforts on my behalf. From my initial meeting with Holly and Caroline, then the staging and ‘property-ready’ efforts of Nicole and staff, the expert negotiation of Michael, and the closing team’s dedication to detail, this has been a positive experience. Your outstanding communication kept me informed every step of the way. Your congeniality and courtesy impressed the neighbors and they will welcome the new owners. I wish your firm continued success.”
Ron Perry”

“Dear Ken and Kim,
Thank you once again for helping Grace and me buy our first home! It is still hard to believe that we will be celebrating two years next week. If it wasn’t for your market insight, extensive experience, close relationships with the seller/broker, and negotiation advice, we know we would not have been able to buy our home in such a competitive market. We love our dream home and now have a one-year-old son who loves it too! It truly was an honor working with the best!”
