Ron Kriss

Ron Kriss is the Owner/Broker of Lawton Associates. He has been making a living in the real estate business for over 30 years. Since opening Lawton Associates in 1989, he has redeveloped more than 150 properties in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. This redevelopment history truly sets Ron apart from other brokers in the area. Ron has likely sold more of his redeveloped homes than most other agents have sold for their clients. Ron often says he has a “PhD in mistakes,” which he has accumulated over the years in the real estate and development business. This knowledge of what to avoid, helps Ron deftly guide and advise his real estate clients, including helping them avoid costly mistakes in their transactions. Ron is very adept at navigating complex real estate transactions for both buyers and sellers. In any given year Ron and his team spend many hours assisting sellers in preparing, marketing, and listing their homes for sale. Most of Ron’s clients are referrals from past clients and neighbors.
