Ken is absolutely, hands down the best real estate agent we have ever worked with.

We feel so lucky to have found him! He is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, smart, thorough, detail oriented, positive, the list goes on and on. We met Ken a few months ago, and have looked at so, so many homes with him. Last week we closed on our dream home and couldn't have felt better about having him guiding us along in the process. This was the first time we had actually bought a home, and we didn't have to worthy about a thing. He has so much experience with buying homes, selling homes, home remodels, home maintenance, and he helped us think through every detail. We couldn't recommend him highly enough. Thank you Ken, so much, for all that you have done for us!

If you're looking for somebody who goes above and beyond on everything you have come to the right place.

Ken and his team visited houses and took videos for us. Brought us to houses and pointed out the good and the bad so that we knew what we were getting into. Went the extra mile when it came to helping us do all of the due diligence and set up all of the inspectors as well as follow up on the next steps to make sure that the open items were on their path to completion. We have worked with other Realtors in the past but this was a differentiated A+ experience that I think almost anybody would be very satisfied with. If you're thinking about purchasing a home and you want the honest answers about what you're getting into and you want this type of customized support I would choose Ken and his team.

I worked with Danielle for over a year and she has been very reliable and consistent.

She really pays attentions to what she is doing and helped me complete several projects while working together. I know she applies these traits in her real estate career. I would recommend her to anyone looking for guidance or assistance.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Ken from East Bay Modern Real Estate.

Ken was professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful, especially since we had to sell our Jack London Square condo while living out of state. He went the extra mile, took care of every detail (big and small) and was a sincere pleasure to work with. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy and sell in the east bay.

The best decision we made when we decided to sell our Walnut Creek Eichler was enlisting Ken Fox of East Bay Modern Real Estate as our realtor.

We had met Ken at a few neighborhood open houses and always liked his demeanor, professionalism, the way his houses were staged, and, more than anything else, the fact that he was passionate about Eichlers and modern homes in general. When we talked to him about representing us, not only did he understand what he was selling, but he also knew what the buyers would be expecting. There are so many realtors who see Eichlers as just another house that sells itself. But not Ken. He knows his market, and he knows his houses. And he knows how to market it to reach the buyers. We were fortunate that he and his stager liked our house and its furniture, so there wasn't much to stage. However, the suggestions they made were spot-on. And the things we couldn't do ourselves they had fantastic people who could do them - quality work for a reasonable price. We completely trusted Ken and his team and it paid off. As is typical for the market, the sale was quick and thanks to Ken the sale price far exceeded our expectations. Throughout the whole process, Ken was professional, honest, reassuring, calm, calming (for us), and a pleasure to work with. If you want to sell your modern gem, talk to Ken and East Bay Modern first. You will have peace of mind in knowing that the sale of your home will be in great hands.

It's rare that you find a realtor who really understands architecture and design.

Ken Fox not only gets it, he lives it! We were very fortunate to have Ken help us sell our home. He is very professional and a real confidant. We've met other realtors that seem to be more interested in gossip than actually working on selling our house. Ken is straightforward with a calming demeanor. He knows Eichlers, from architects, history, to floor plans, and radiant heat - he ensures the details are covered when selling your home so there are no surprises later on. He set timelines for when things should happen, so plan accordingly and communicate your needs/wants. Before Ken came along Eichlers in Concord were not even on the radar, but with his help, marketing materials, floors plan mock ups, great photography, drone shots, 3D floor plans... He's elevated the way Concord Eichlers are perceived. The community of Eichler owners are passionate and Ken is a realtor that reflects that ethos. We hated to leave our wonderful community but Ken's presence and smooth service really helped the transition. All we can say is thank you!!

I've known Ken Fox for several years, mostly from visiting his open houses.

When it came time to list our own home for sale, a fully restored and modernized Eichler, there was no doubt that we'd list with Ken. But dealing with Ken as a seller was even more impressive than we had imagined. Sure, he knows the real estate side of things. Comps, when to list, when to have open houses, whether to consider a preemptive offer. But it's in the tiny details, the intangibles, that Ken shines, things you haven't thought of, no matter how detailed you might be. During the pre-sales process, he brought in a fabulous stager that made our place look great. He recommended a handyman to help me finish last minute projects that added value. He suggested several changes that were on point, and gently pushed us to make those changes, even the ones I resisted. During the photo and video shoot, he literally became the art director, guiding the shots exactly the way he wanted to view them. Another reviewer says that Ken made him want to buy his own house, and that is so true. In that way, I kind of regret selling, but Ken helped us get top dollar for our property, and I cannot recommend him enough.

Ken was our agent when we were trying to buy in the East Bay.

After taking us to almost 100 showings, at any date and time, and having lost multiple bids, Ken was able to help us secure the house of our dreams in this super tough market. He is responsive, there for you at any date or time. You would be lucky to have Ken as your agent! Believe the hype- he's the best in town.

After our friends and neighbors who were selling their homes had a great experience with Ken Fox at East Bay Modern some years back, we resolved to look Ken up once we were ready to move and downsize.

Ken and his team seem to understand the aesthetic, appeal, inventory, and availability of "mid-century modern" homes like no one else in the Bay Area real estate business. Particularly if you are a Bay Area Eichler seller or aspiring Eichler buyer you certainly can't do any better than seeking out Ken Fox to represent you. When Ken put our base-model Walnut Creek Eichler on the market it rapidly drew multiple offers. We gladly accepted a great over-asking offer from a family for whom our house was a perfect fit. Win-win for us and the buyers... Contact Ken!

Tamsen truly is a fierce beast of her own.

I’ve never experienced anyone with such determination to go above and beyond expectations when it comes to the houses she shows and making clients happy. I am amazed at her attention to detail to all things. Houses shown by her are always clean inside, lightly staged, and accommodates to our personal wants (like delicious snacks!). She is not afraid to be honest with you and is always quick to make adjustments that will fit your wants if needed which I really appreciate. It’s hard to find someone that you feel is *truly* listening to you, so I was extremely happy to find that Tamsen has my best interest in mind. Hands down she is best realtor there is in the Austin market. Nobody is doing it quite like her.

In preparing to sell our house, an Eichler in Walnut Creek, we interviewed several real estate agents who specialized in mid century homes.

Ken Fox won us over; he provided concrete ideas to improve the house and make it ready for the market, had the support of a well-established agency, and was knowledgeable, confident and organized. Ken was very involved from the get go and we were made to feel like we were his only client. He responded to our questions quickly and seemed to always be available when we needed him. He brought in a stager and together they gave us some great ideas for colors and furniture placement. Ken recommended a handy man that did quite a bit of work around the house and yard at a fair price and with excellent results. Ken worked hard to make our timeline work and was extremely accommodating. The sale of our home went off without a hitch and was really quite stress free. He took the reins and made everything happen pretty seamlessly. We could not have been happier with our choice in agents. He's also just a really nice guy. We would recommend Ken Fox wholeheartedly.

Ken was excellent.

He made the whole process super easy. And he ultimately got us $10,000 over ask.

Ken Fox was a true professional in our home search.

He is well versed in the home buying process and knows the Austin area very well. He was a key player in getting us into our dream home despite the tough competition out there.

Ken did a fantastic job.

I've never seen my house look so great. After looking at his presentation of my house, I almost didn't want to sell it caus of how appealing he made it look. From top to bottom it was a fully professional experience and I highly recommend using Ken for your real estate needs. A+++++

Tamsen Reed nailed my goals and made the real estate machine work hard and fast.

My property sold very quickly in the very competitive Austin market all while I was in Dallas moving into a new house. She’s a polymath, a one-woman machine! She became thoroughly informed about the property inside and out, explained and handled contracts, disclosure and supporting documents, advised on cosmetic updates and managed contractors. She created demand for my property that brought in multiple offers though her hands on staging, landscaping, stunning photography, a direct-mail flyer and listing on websites. People responded immediately. But Tamsen made them all wait until after the sparkling open house weekend she put on. The offers came just like she predicted, and Tamsen closed the deal exceeding my expectations! I’m recommending Tamsen Reed to everyone I know in Austin that want to get a move on with their life!
