Ken Yazel was elected Tulsa County Assessor in 2002 and was re-elected in 2006, 2010 and 2014. As Assessor, he is responsible for placing a fair cash (market) value on property as of the tax date. Oklahoma property taxes are “ad valorem”, meaning the taxes are based on the property value. This value is converted into an assessment, which is one component in the computation of real property tax bills. The Assessor has no jurisdiction or responsibility for taxing jurisdiction budgets or establishing the tax rate.
A retired Major, U.S. Marine Corps, Yazel served as a radio operator, parachutist, Vietnamese Interrogator-Translator, Nuclear Artillery Officer, Recruiting Officer, and Financial Management Officer.
In 1982, he was recognized as the Marine Corps Fiscal Director’s Top Budget Officer. While serving our country, Yazel rose through the ranks from Private to Staff Sergeant before being commissioned as a Marine Corps officer, and in his 13 years as an officer he served in command for six years.
In 1983, he passed the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam on his first try and worked with Income, Estate and Gift tax clients along with other business clients. After working as a CPA for several years, he went on to be the founder, owner and CEO of several companies in the Tulsa area.
Two of those successful companies are title and escrow operations serving the commercial and residential markets.
In addition, Yazel has served as a Precinct Officer for the Tulsa County Election Board from 1984-2000, and in 2002 he graduated from the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Academy. As a Reserve Deputy,
Yazel earned the Meritorious Service Award in 2005. In 2003, he was recognized with advanced accreditation under the Oklahoma Accreditation Program for assessors.

Update: People who plan to live in houses are paying to dollar and even above the listing prices. Don't overpay as an investor just to buy an investment. There are still deals out there that and our Members are buying some great properties. Houses still need repairs that normal people can't look past and some sellers have financial problems that investors can solve to get deals.
Remember: Keep marketing for deals and most important: Make Offers!
