THE LEMONADE STAND IS WHERE IT ALL STARTED
At nine years old, Ken remembers living on a golf course in the suburbs of San Francisco. He'd wake up early to set up his lemonade stand under an old oak tree on the 9th hole tee box.
"I loved the process of getting ready, searching for lost golf balls and tee's to sell the week before. I'd clean them up, repaint the wooden tees and display them carefully in old egg cartons. When I was ready, I'd wheel it all out in a wagon from my house a few doors down. We had fresh-made lemonade, sodas and my dad would sometimes stock us with some beers to sell. I enjoyed every part of it. The preparation, making everything look beautiful, the pride of ownership, and greeting the golfers."
This love for personal interaction has, more than anything else, guided Ken's professional path and created unique opportunities for success in a real estate career that has spanned over 25 years.
"Like lemonade stands, real estate is a people business, so finding ways to better serve, communicate and interact with people is what it's all about. Those same lemonade stand principles of preparation, delighting the customer, loving what we do are core values which drive our business today."
