Q&A

  • Would someone describe you as an early bird or a night owl?
  • I am definitely the early bird, much to the chagrin of my family. I am ready to chat the moment I get up and love to hit a cafe in the early hours for a latte and a little bit of reading. I am always open to an interruption from a friend though!
  • Favorite restaurant or hang out?
  • I love Rocco’s Ristorante Pizzeria in Walnut Creek for their pizza, and their boneless buffalo wings are to die for!  I also love House of Curries on College Ave in Berkeley for their chicken tikka masala. As for hangin’ out, any place that has a good cider on tap works for me.
  • Famous person (living or dead) you’d most like to meet?
  • I would love to meet John Muir. His passion and love for the outdoors and his fearless exploration of wild, open and expansive places continues to intrigue me.
  • What’s your mantra?
  • When is our next backpacking trip?
  • What’s your most treasured possession (besides your phone!)?
  • I love my trekking poles. The funny thing is that they were a cheap pair that I bought in St Jean Pied de Port, France the day before embarking on a 550 mile trek in and across northern Spain on the Camino Frances, part of the network of routes comprising the Camino de Santiago. I would be sad to lose them now and I never hike without them.
  • What would you tell your 16-year old self?
  • Quit worrying about what everyone else thinks! Just go for it!

Ken Brown has spent his career serving people. After graduating from college with a degree in business and a concentration in finance, Ken spent two years working with Household Financial Services in Chesapeake, Virginia. Much of his focus was debt counseling and helping families properly budget to meet their goals.

It was through volunteering with local middle and high school students that Ken felt the pull toward pastoral ministry. After completing a Masters of Divinity in 1997, Ken spent the better part of 17 years in pastoral ministry both in Virginia and here in the Bay area.

Ken has also worked with Contra Costa Christian School teaching ethics and comparative religions, serving as the high school athletic director and coaching, and serving as the director of community relations.

Ken and his wife Amy have lived in Contra Costa County for the better part of two decades. They are the proud parents of four adult children — Andrew together with his wife Samantha, Emily, Kristin, and Annie. In his spare time Ken enjoys hiking and has walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain. He continues to learn Spanish, loves watching Cal State Monterey Bay women’s soccer where his daughter plays, and can regularly be seen hanging with friends in local coffee shops. At the top of his bucket list is becoming fluent in Spanish and thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada.

Ken counts it a privilege to continue serving people and helping them through one of the biggest decisions of life — buying or selling a home, and working with the great team of people at Abio Properties makes it possible to provide his clients with the highest level of service available in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties.
