Get to know ken krasner

As a resident of Essex County for 25 years, I am familiar with local communities, home values and can save you valuable time and effort in securing financing, insurance and home connections.   For a financial investment as important as your home, I can help you put together the best team possible.  I pay attention, go the extra mile and have the know-how to create opportunities and identify potential pitfalls in a transaction.  I will put my in-depth knowledge of the real estate market, marketing savvy, and professional network to work for you!

Originally hailing from West Orange, with stretches in Jersey City and Plainfield, I'm happy to call South Orange my home for the past seven years. My wife, Ramona Kelly, is a home stager/ interior design pro and make-up artist, and we've had two children who attended Columbia High School.  A fun fact about me is that back in the 90s, I toured Europe as the bass player for Chubby Checker and I wrote the score for several films.
