Your Sacramento REALTOR®

Hi, I'm Akpene Penny Ranson

Don’t take the risk of buying or selling your real estate alone. I’m here to help you succeed! Obsessed with real estate for 22 years…nerdy about following real estate market trends, data and housing news. A genuinely nice guy…informal life coach, mentor, and cheerleader to many. Invested in the community and building a better world for all. A man with an eye for detail and a passion about doing things the right way the first time.

When I’m not helping my clients navigate all things real estate, you can find me exploring California back roads on my motorcycle, spoiling my dog, or angling to take the perfect photograph.

Penny was professional in every way. He was also very dilagent in making sure the proper work was processed and turned in in a timely manner. He was down to earth in his conversation and explained everything in plain english with a smile. He is definitely an asset to Almond... Read More

I cannot speak highly enough about Almond Valley Realty agent Akpene Ranson. There is so much involved, both financially and emotionally in buying and/or selling a house, and you have to have an agent you can trust completely and rely on. Akpene is this agent. He is authentic and honest,... Read More
