Jay Jasper

Ken Eakin



Kenneth O’Dell Eakin grew up in the Hill Country north of Austin, Texas. That’s where he learned some important, old-fashioned principles...hard work, honesty, loyalty, and the value of a dollar. After graduating from Texas State University with a degree in marketing and management, Ken spent the next thirty-plus years in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Eakin’s talent, tenacity and intellect lead him to senior positions in operations, strategic development, contract negotiations, recruitment, sales and marketing, forecasting, systems management, investor relations, mergers & acquisitions and customer service. All of which grossly over-qualifies Ken Eakin for the job of residential real estate agent. So why did he do it? Why did this successful, retired corporate executive get into real estate anyway? He got bored. After 36 years of airports...after starting new companies and leading them to acquisition...after creating corporate partnerships in North America, South America and Europe... after years of experience with implantable medical devices...Ken decided he wanted to plant himself in one place, his home of 25 years, Scottsdale, Arizona. But since Ken isn’t one to sit idly on the sidelines, he wasn’t content to just play golf and go to the gym each day. Eakin wanted more. A lifetime real estate investor, with decades of experience in sales, he decided to combine the two and make real estate sales his second career. So Ken Eakin joined Berkshire Hathaway in early 2017, rolled up his shirtsleeves, and got to work. He already had comprehensive, up-to-the-minute knowledge of the marketplace. As a long-time resident of the Valley, he knows the North Scottsdale housing market like a native. A licensed airplane and drone pilot for 30 years, as well as an unabashed dog lover and world traveler, Eakin brought all his diverse skills and personal qualities to his real estate career - his dogged sense of determination, his straightforward way of talking, his tenacious sense of duty to the client, and his sane and realistic approach to managing situations and problems. Ken has been described by his real estate clients as, “A steady hand...a direct, honest, dedicated people person whose superior common sense, negotiating prowess and gift for reading markets” makes him a realtor of particular note. People want Ken Eakin representing them. Especially high net worth individuals who appreciate working with a high caliber professional who understands their wants, needs and sensibilities.
