Ken Sax is a Designated Broker for approximately 800 licensees throughout WA and has been in the real estate industry since 1992. He started his career in Southern CA and spent 12 years as a commercial broker selling industrial, office and shopping center properties. When the recession hit in the mid 90s, Ken shifted his focus to apartment buildings and mini-storage facilities going thru the receivership process. His goal was to make these properties profitable then sell them.

Ken earned his WA instructor license in 2006 and has been teaching on a regular basis ever since. He has also been continually active in sales and currently owns and runs his 3rd real estate team.
