"Ken knows the JP market like the back of his hand, very attentive, and works hard to get you what you're hoping for. We were first time home buyers with Ken in 2016, and sought him out to help us when we eventually sold our place this year. When we sold, he helped connect us with a team to stage our condo, which was great because we were selling from out of state. We felt confident we were in good hands, even from 3,000 miles away. He was also very honest with us as we tried to make a decision about when to put our house on the market and we did not feel pushed in one direction or another and he provided us with guidance when we asked for it. When he sold our place, he was able to coordinate everything so we didn't have to fly back for the closing and were able to do everything remotely. We will definitely reach out to work with him a third time if/when we look to return to the area."
"I cannot recommend Ken more highly - if you are looking for someone to take you through each step of the home purchase process with ease, look no further! Ken made our first home purchase a lot less intimidating than it would have been otherwise - from assisting with his observations at walkthroughs, to suggestions on the offer process, and making great recommendations for next steps once the house was ours, it was really great to work with him. Buying a house can feel like a lot, but having a professional like Ken who is so knowledgeable and helpful and just an honest, NICE person makes it a lot less scary. Thanks, Ken!"
"We were referred to Ken by a family friend, and immediately thanked the friend for the referral. Ever since we decided we wanted to buy in Somerville, Ken has been a steadying and highly informative presence, letting us know about properties that we might have missed, and being not only available but enthusiastic when we've had questions about different locations and strategies for entering the market. Throughout, we've come to rely on his judgment, and to trust him implicitly. This trust was well-rewarded when the right home for us recently came on the market: Ken was on top of the whole process, showing us that our interests were his central and genuine concern, while also working respectfully and cooperatively with the seller. He also put us in touch with the other people--loan officer, attorney--necessary to the purchase, each of whom was both professional and a pleasure to work with. We recently closed, and couldn't be happier. If we could give Ken and his team--especially Dan--six stars, we would."
"We were referred to Ken by a family friend and are incredibly happy that we were. Ken is wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood we were buying in and provided great advice re: offers and price negotiation. He was very responsive and easy to get in touch with. He made the whole home-buying experience easy! He worked well with the selling agent to make everything go smoothly. I will happily recommend Ken to anyone looking for a realtor!"
"We love working with Ken! He walked us through the whole process of selling our first house, educating us and attending to our needs all along the way. Ken's knowledge of the local market allowed him to tailor the marketing of our house and attract the right buyers at the right price. He handled the negotiations perfectly. We are so glad we chose to work with him. Bonus: what we learned from him about the process helped us land a great deal when we bought our new house across the country."
What sets him apart from other agents is his acute attention to detail, tireless work ethic, and practiced negotiating skills that put his clients' needs first. These traits often save his clients thousands of dollars by avoiding unexpected and costly pitfalls.
As an agent, Ken provides clients with an accurate value of properties through his excellent communication skills and knowledge of local and national real estate trends. In addition to his personal transactions, he also mentors others as a co-chair of the Greater Jamaica Plain Community of Real Estate Professionals.
Prior to his career in real estate, Ken worked in the field of education, leading programs with Outward Bound and the National Outdoor Leadership School. He was also the Director of the Charlestown Boys and Girls Club. He received a B.A. in Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and an Ed.M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
Ken is an avid outdoorsman, triathlete, and runner. He also volunteers with various local non-profits and youth leadership development programs. He has a passion for green living and integrates this into his daily personal and professional life.
