Who Am I? 

  • 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 helped me in the purchase of my home. My expectations were low having just experienced a nightmarish sale of my previous home. I came to wish that he had represented me in that sale. He was attentive, responsive and efficient. He found me something that I like very quickly and moved through the closing process in a timely manner. That being said he also ensured that the house was fully inspected and any necessary repairs completed by the seller. He was there every step of the way. Perhaps most importantly he is a kind and thoughtful man who lives up to his good guy image. Should I need Realestate assistance any where in California I will call upon him again. Thank you Penny for the great service!

Akpene K Ranson (a.k.a. Penny) is very perfessional, and very patient. He showed us every house we wanted to see until we found the one that was exactly what we were looking for in the right neighborhood and within our budget. Penny always had the answer to every question we have had for him, and with us being first time home buyers there has been A LOT of questions. I like how he is easy to communicate with and he always makes time to meet with us to show a house, or to do paperwork or any other reason we felt that we needed to meet with him. Penny is a pleasure to work with, I will be calling him every time I want to buy or sell real estate in the future, and recommending him to anybody I know that wants to buy or sell real estate.

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 Valley and if I had to...

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, and...

Talk about putting my nerves at ease! This experience buying my first home was everything it is supposed to be! I was initially so worried about so many things, and thanks to Penny being so understanding and informative, every question was answered with patience and kindness. Working so closely with the lender also adds to the ease, at no point was I left not knowing what to do next. When it was time to look at homes I brought my parents and didn't want to waste their time. Penny guided us to each home as we are not from the area, we learned so much about the Modesto layout, new homes, older homes parks and school locations! This part was so fun instead of stressful. As we looked at each home he showed us the pros and cons of each home. I never felt as if he was selling me a house! He knew what I wanted and we looked at every aspect about each home. I appreciated how well he worked with the seller's agent as well. I was shocked to find out my offer was accepted over 4 other offers! Pinch me now, almost overnight my dreams were coming true! I have already met with the whole home inspector and I love the people Penny chooses to work with...they only add to the ease of this experience! ☆☆☆☆☆ FOR PENNY!
