“Today, the only thing challenging the core of your business is everything.”
Ken Jenny is one of the sharpest analysts of the real estate technology landscape. I relied on his perspective and advice many times throughout the years as he is able to see around corners. I highly respect his opinion and professionalism.
As a U.S. immigrant fresh off the boat, I had little to no nuanced understanding of the residential real estate industry. Ken was a strategic teacher and mentor who helped me learn 10 years worth of insights in a year and set Trulia on the right path with our industry strategy from the very beginning. And best of all, his values and integrity were never in question, which is the most important thing I consider when trying to find a team member or advisor to work with (and there was no dull moment working together).
Over the last 20 years and during the growth of my last four real estate tech companies, Ken Jenny has been an incredibly valuable advisor and trusted partner. Ken’s intimate knowledge of the history of the industry, the people that make a difference and his insight into where the real estate industry is headed is unparalleled. I would highly recommend Ken for any company competing in the real estate industry that wants to accelerate growth and separate from the competition.
Ken is one of those rare individuals who not only gets it, but can share it. I’ve known Ken a long time and I cannot remember one incident where Ken’s insights didn’t bring real value to every conversation.
Ken has one of the keenest minds in the real estate industry. He understands the nuances and foibles of the industry and he sees around the bend for opportunities and threats ahead. Ken is easy to work with and is dedicated to his clients and partners.
While Ken is a veteran and industry warrior, his relevance, insight and perspective has never been more fresh and spot on. Ken has demonstrated time and again great vision in aligning successful initiatives with consumer or agent acceptance and engagement. Ken has an ability and eye to separate winning strategy and product from those that fail. When Ken speaks I listen.
Ken is one of the most influential leaders and innovators in the industry. His consulting firm has a 24-year track record of success with a client list composed of the industry’s most influential real estate and technology brands. He constantly challenges my assumptions, forces me to see issues from multiple perspectives, and has been an important sounding board for the two companies I own as well.
There a many consultants in our industry, a lot of them are ‘in between’ or aren’t true talent. Ken is a true professional, he has a great mind, great experience and he has complete integrity.
I enjoy meeting with Ken because I consider him one of the most forward thinking people in an industry that is replete with people who lack vision. Ken’s ‘out of the box’ thinking is motivating and he has assisted me tremendously with my company. I consider Ken a go-to person who listens, processes and provides solid advice to me that has helped reshape our company.
Ken is a seasoned guy who understands how technology can be wielded as a competitive weapon in our increasingly competitive industry. But even more importantly, he’s a strategic thinker who will tell you like it is. There are lots of people who will tell you what you want to hear, and very few who will tell you what you need to hear – Ken has consistently been willing to do that when almost no one else is. I value that tremendously.
There is no one in the real estate industry who can give the breadth and depth of guidance as well as Ken Jenny. Ken has seen it all and knows where this industry is headed. He is not afraid to challenge the status quo and provides consultation for the future. Ken is able to see real estate trends before anyone else and was instrumental to the success of Opcity. In addition to being a real estate encyclopedia, Ken has a phenomenal rolodex and knows the right players in the right organizations. His introductions to key decision makers and large clients allowed us to scale quickly with the best players. Opcity could not be where we are today without him.
Ken Jenny has been instrumental in bolstering RealScout’s growth over the past 5 plus years. It’s a rare privilege to work with a proven strategist like Ken — he is someone who has experience working alongside the CEOs of several 8-figure and 9-figure real estate technology companies. It’s no coincidence that Ken is often found behind the scenes at the very epicenter of many of the industry’s transformations.
