Ken Pecus – Real Estate

My parents emigrated to the United States in 1971 from Pakistan when I was seven years old. I was actually born in Bombay, India, and our family roots are from Goa, India. Somehow, my parents found a rental in Coronado within a few weeks of arrival (without jobs and college educations), yet they managed to plant roots, and we kids had the privilege of growing up on the island paradise. I graduated from Coronado High School in 1983 and went on to Texas A&M University, graduating with a BS Electrical Engineering degree in 1987. I was always going to be a real estate agent, so it wasn’t long before I got my license in 1989 and never looked back. Along the way, I’ve worked for small local companies to national mega brokerages. In the 2000s, I founded a company, Ascent Real Estate, which grew to become the largest non-affiliated independent brokerage in San Diego. In the past few years, I’ve been developing a new brokerage team under the umbrella of the national cloud brokerage company EXP Realty. Always on to new adventures. I’ve been an avid tennis player since high school, and my ultimate nonbusiness passion is international travel.
