    My Client Testimonials

    I cannot say enough about Ken. I have never worked with such a dedicated, empathetic, and client focused individual. My mom listed her house with him in Sept/Oct. and it was a very complex sale from the start. She had lived in the property over 50 years, and it had fallen into severe disrepair, with a unique commercial/residential zoning and no resources to clean it out. Ken went into immediate work - going to the village, talking to commercial buyers, and working to get the best sellers. From the start it was clear Ken was "the one" for the sale. My elderly mother was very emotional and embarrassed about the state of the house, but Ken was SO kind to her, not once expressing any concern to her and made a very difficult situation so much better for her. In the middle of the sale, the sale became EXTREMELY complex, and my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and went downhill extremely quickly and she passed away very quickly. With no valid will in place, Ken found us a wonderful, seasoned real estate attorney AND found us a probate lawyer. He worked endlessly and tirelessly to work through the complicated process, with no sense of impatience, and extreme care and empathy, and was able to close this sale. Everyone I spoke with about him and our process was amazed at his patience and level of work. I have never worked with a professional like Ken and would and have recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent. I cannot thank him enough for bringing this to closing during such a difficult, complex time. Absolutely amazing experience. I wish there we more words... ~ Ken Thompson
    everything Ken did was great and above satifactory ~ reese evans plainfield il
    Ken is a great broker. He is very straight forward and you do not get the impression that he is just trying to make a sale like most brokers. He will always give his honest opinion of any property you are looking at. Also if you are a first time home buyer Ken is very good at educating you on how the process goes. If you like a property, Ken makes a great effort to get you in there to see it as fast as possible. My fiancé and I were extremely pleased with Ken's services and we would highly recommend him to any friends and family looking to buy or sell a property. ~ Jacob Trattner, Channahon
    Very Happy with Ken, In this day of covid I felt it might be a concern since it is a business property and a lot of people are working from home these days but Ken got it sold. ~ Ray Rowe
    I was good working with Ken in the sale of my rental and being out of the area. Ken was very trustworthy realtor who was prepared and experienced to handle a difficult tenant that didn¿t want to move. We were able to land a investor so the tenant can remain and Ken helped through the entire process. He was Always prepared, referred me to his lawyer and always available. Or I should say he made himself available. Ken is the best realtor I¿ve ever had. Sincerely, David Wateska ~ David Wateska, Irvine California
    Ken is the real deal. He sold our home in record time! Experience and knowledge are important factors when choosing a realtor and when you meet Ken it's clear why he is so successful, his expertise is a game changer. Not only will he sell your home quick but he comes in with a game plan to get you the highest and best offer you deserve. He is confident and respected with excellent negotiation skills, definitely the guy you want in your corner. ~ Rigoberto Bautista - Minooka, IL
    I was a first-time seller, and Ken made the whole process simpler than I could have ever imagined. His knowledge is exceptional, and he was a real pleasure to work with. ~ Mary C. Selfridge
    Ken Thomson knows his stuff forward and backward. Having owned and sold 2 homes prior to this sale, his knowledge was way above what I expected from my previous experiences. He knew exactly where to price the property and knew exactly how to advertise it thru his network. There were offers on the property within days and closed promptly without any further delays. I recommend Ken as he knows his area very well and has the experience and contacts to get it done. ~ Keith Gantz, Romeoville Illinois.
    We've been working with Ken for 15 years. He helped us acquire our first rental property and we have used him each time we needed to find a new tenant. He's always been able to fill vacancies within a few weeks. For this latest purchase, we had a very specific requirement in mind, so I went to Ken, who found the right property. In this case the property wasn't actually on the market, but he knew the parties involved and was able to negotiate the sale. There were several challenges in dealing with the seller and mortgager on this deal that Ken and his team were able to navigate around. His knowledge of the area and constant presence alerted us to a potential issue that we were able to turn to our advantage. No doubt we'll be working with Ken both for securing future tenants and when it comes time to trade up to a new property...in fact, I'm certain he's already keeping an eye out on our behalf and will reach out if the right situation arises. Thanks, Ken! ~ Patrick & Suzy Jaromin
    Ken helped me sell my last house, so I didnt hesitate to call him this time. He listened to my concerns, explained his selling strategy and kept me informed. Ken went above and beyond to assure I received the best price for my home. I would highly recommend Ken Thomson! ~ Shari, Plainfield, il
    This is my second time having Ken Thomson as my realtor. Why? Ken listened to my needs and went above and beyond to locate properties I might be interested in viewing. Ken kept me informed and he gave me excellent advise and encouragement as I went through the very stressful house buying experience! I would highly recommend Ken Thomson! ~ Shari, Plainfield,Il
    Ken was there every step of the way. He truly understood the neighborhood and market details. His expertise is phenomenal and he took excellent care through the whole process. I feel very fortunate to have connected him and I would highly recommend. ~ Kurt Krahn, Santa Fe, NM
    "Ken is a wonderful person. I looked online for a Realtor and his name popped up. He came over and looked at my house and gave me an honest estimate on what my house would be worth. it went online and sold quickly. He came over as I was packing and helped with somethings and gave me hints on thing to do. He kept in touch the whole time it was working in closing, which made me very grateful. He notified me that closing went thu, which made me happy and was very friendly the whole time. I recommended him to a friend and would happily recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. He is a great realtor and great person." ~ Debbi Rose Fishers, IN
    The way you take care of your people will manifest in their performance. Kudos to all especially Ken. We got a new friend. ~ Emmanuel of Shorewood
    Ken is very professional with the sale of my small industrial condo considering the worldwide shut down. ~ christine schmidt, Romeoville
    I would highly recommend Ken to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. ~ Phillip Wojtasik
    He was very fast responding person and knowledgeable. ~ Kunja, Joliet
    We have been working with Ken Thomson for a few years now and I will never use anyone else. Hes smart, effective, and efficient. I trust his advice and he has never let me down. He gives me more time than I deserve and I am so thankful for his patience and commitment. In my experience a lot of realtors can talk the talk, but only Ken Thomson can walk the walk. I would refer him to any and all of my friends and family because I know they will be just as impressed as I am. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Ken, thank you for all you do. ~ Rigoberto Bautista - Minooka, IL
    Ken has helped us buying, renting and selling the properties many times. This time when our long tanents of 14442 independence dr in Plainfield decided not to continue leasing, we were out of Illinois and would not able to come back soon. We called Ken immediately. He took the extra work to inspect the house, gave us his professional advice. By our long term relationship we trust his knowledge and experience. So only took less than a month our house was sold. Thank Ken. We'll continue to use his service when we needed also will refer to my frieands and relatives. (Actualy we did already). ~ Jean
    I have dealt with Ken for over 9 years and he has helped me buy and sell close to 10 properties. I wouldnt use anyone else and I refer him to my friend and family when they have a need. ~ Mike Joliet
    Ken Thomson started showing me houses for sale about 9 months ago. I wanted to buy and be settled into a smaller home before I put my house on the market. While Ken educated me in the buying process he also encouraged me to begin getting my house ready for sale, starting with a market analysis and recommendations for staging my home. Selling my home of 32 years was emotional as well as physical and entailed a lot of wavering on my part. One of Kens strengths is his patience but he checked in with me from time to time, always available to answer questions, provide sensible feedback and encouragement. The day after I closed on my new home, I unexpectedly decided to put my house on the market. The listing Ken had the foresight to prepare ahead of time went public at 2:00 that Friday afternoon. I had 3 showings that same evening and many more that weekend. By Monday noon I had 9 offers. With Kens persistent involvement in negotiations, I closed today, a very satisfied client. Need I say more? ~ Christine Luttrell, Lockport IL
    Ken Thomson was an excellent realtor to work with, even outside his market area Specifically, Ken was able to assist our efforts in selling our home in Florida. He did this by researching realtors in our area and hooked us up with an excellent realtor there. He really went the extra mile in identifying a top performing Listing Broker in Florida ~ Phil Praschan, Plainfield
    5/31/20 Ken helped me find the perfect home. I talk a lot and ask a lot of questions but Ken was always patient. One of his skills is educating his client and making you feel as if you are his only one. He goes beyond what I expected from a realtor, getting to know my personality and how to work with me. Ken also was my realtor to sell my residence. Once again, he passed along the knowledge I needed to make a quick sale with multiple offers. I couldnt be more pleased with a realtor. I happily and strongly recommend him. ~ Christine Luttrell
    I would definitely recommend Ken Tomson for selling your house. You will be in good hands. He treats you like family, and genuinely cares. ~ Janet Rusin, Plainfield
    Ken is a very experienced trustworthy realtor. You want him working for you because hell get it done well!!! Great Professional. ~ Ronza Jordan Aurora

He never leaves you hanging and makes sure you understand everything completely. I believe he is someone who not only fulfills the requirements, but goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is satisfied and happy. Great experience overall, A+ ~ TS, Plainfield
    Ken was paramount in helping me sell my home. From the first email to the last text message, Ken answered all my questions, most times before I even knew what questions I had. Things played out just as he predicted they would and he kept everything right on track. He took a difficult and stressful time in my life and made it so much easier. If your looking for an agent that puts you high on his priority list then look no further and give Ken a call. You wont be disappointed! ~ Wendy Satala Oswego

    Ken was terrific and always got with me in a timely manner to answer all my questions. He was very knowledgeable in everything including even some of the different plants in my beautiful landscaped backyard. I was in a situation where there was multiple offers and he gave me the right perspective to make the correct decision and offer for me. I now have my beautiful home because of Kens help and it was within my budget too! I would hire Ken again if I ever needed a realtor again he made everything go smoothly and less stressful. Thanks Ken! Just a great guy who was extremely knowledgeable,cordial,and helpful! I do believe he made a big difference in finding the perfect house for me and helped seal the deal! Thomas D Sullivan ~ Thomas D Sullivan Plainfield Illinois
    Ken Thomson always goes above and beyond to make sure our minds are at ease. It's so easy to worry and want to make an emotional decision when things dont go as planned but Ken is always so calm cool and collected. I appreciate the time he puts into comparing comps and preparing our listing so it stands out. After talking to him for 5 mins it's clear that he is a true professional and a very educated man. I am so confident in his ability to sell a home and get us the most for it that I will not only recommend him to friends/family but he will be our realtor for life! ~ Rigo, minooka

    Ken was very knowledgeable about the factors I saw as major roadblocks to the sale of my townhome. He assured me that they were not a problem and he was right. I went into the process of the sale with a lot of trepidation. Ken assuaged my fears. The sale was super easy. ~ Matthew Heermann, Chicago
    Mr. Ken has helped us to buy and sell properties several times. We appreciated not only of his efficient work, also he always tried do anything every thing to make job done quickly and well, like find Cleaning service, replace carpet....if we are not able to stay in the vacant Property, he did stay for us. ...That is why we always ask Mr. Ken to help us. ~ Jean California
    We chose Ken from a random internet search that gave him great reviews! Since we were downsizing in an off-market, we knew we needed an experienced and highly-rated Realtor. Ken met all our criteria. Ken gave us excellent results despite several challenges and hurdles. Ken was All-of-the-above! He was communicative and professional. He anticipated all of our needs, including our emotional ones. He kept our process moving forward. Ken was all I wanted and needed in a Realtor, plus more! I cannot praise Ken enough for his performance and hard work. He was accessible 24/7. ~ Mary Jo Cureton
    Ken was very helpful and patient as we searched and waited and searched and waited for the right home to go on the market.... the moment it did, Ken coordinated the showing and presented our offer immediately so that we were able to secure the contract although there was much interest in this home. Ken handled everything perfectly and his constant communication was outstanding! ~ Bob & Karin - Plainfield, IL
    Ken had our home under contract on the second day. The listing and pictures were awesome! ~ Karin & Bob - Plainfield, IL

At the end of the day I always leave the table knowing I got a great deal because ken puts in work for his clients! ~ Rigoberto, Minooka
    Ken Thomson is an amazing real estate agent! He made wonderful suggestions that helped us sell our home quickly. He pays attention to detail making sure to point out information about houses on the market. He has always answered us promptly within 10 minutes, even at odd hours, which we did not expect. He has truly made the process of buying and selling a home seamless. ~ Krissy and Patrick
    We have worked with ken a few times now and are extremely grateful for all he has done for us. Just a few of his finest attributes are his ability to stay cool under pressure, exhibit an abundance of patience and understanding, and his most of all his vast knowledge in real estate. When we felt the pressure after hearing negative feedback and the house not selling as quick as I anticipated, Ken was able to keep us calm and cool. He knew what the house was worth and made sure we got a deal that reflected the blood sweat and tears that went into remodeling this house. We completely trust and value his experience in finding the right buyer. I have never in my life met somebody with as much patience as Ken Thomson! He answered my phone call at 6 am or 10 pm, sundays, and holidays. I am just so grateful to of found a realtor who puts the time in to make sure we feel comfortable every set of the way and understand every part of the process. Ken is especially exceptional at explaining complicated matters like strategy and the processes. This is a hard quality to find. We love how genuine he is. Its refreshing to feel valued as a client. The most obvious point here that really was the deciding factor in ultimately choosing ken for all of our future transactions is his vast knowledge in the real estate world. Hes doesnt just say what you want to hear. He gives it to you straight and explaines each and every route we can take to help find the buyer that is right for us.he puts in a lot 9f time and effort and it shows! I am confident in referring ken to our family and friends and look forward to working with him in the future. He is a one of a kind guy and we consider ourselves lucky to have got the opportunity to work with him. I can honestly say our business is more successful because we have ken selling our houses! Thank You!! ~ Rigoberto Bautista minooka il
    AMAZING! This mans knowledge and expertise are second to none ~ Jim Plainfield
    I have known Ken for nearly 15 years now. We used Ken to sell 2 homes and buy 2 homes over the past 15 years. Most recently, I called Ken to help find a rental for my parents who needed to move closer to me. I was not getting many replies from agents representing the owner of the rental properties. My understanding is that commissions are not that much for rentals, so some agents do not want to dedicate much time for rentals. I almost had to to 'settle' putting my parents in a 1 bedroom apartment. I called Ken, and he was more than willing to help. Within a week, he was able to confirm showings for 3 town homes which previously I was getting no reply from the 'listing' agents. One town home, which I thought would be perfect for my parents, Ken informed me of some background information that I or any other renter would not have known and could have possibly led to issues if my parents moved in. We ended up going with a ranch style town home as this was better suited for my parents. Ken's service did not end there. I just asked Ken causally if owner is willing to reduce rent. I really thought Ken would say 'No' as this would entail more work and possibly kill the deal. He was happy to make request, and owner agreed with no objections. Bottom line is that no matter if Ken will make thousands, hundreds or no commission at all, he will give you the same customer service. He always is available for any calls/texts and he will represent you in the most professional manner always. ~ Rachit Patel Oswego IL
    Great realtor to sell your house, he keep the cost down and very friendly and helpful. He gets results ~ Luis Bautista romeoville
    Ken Thompson along with Stephanie Sergent took on the sale of my home when we were not satisfied with a previous broker. They listened to our needs and marketed our home amazingly attracting attention, resulting in a sale that took a few short weeks. I recommend Ken to anyone that needs an excellent sales team. Thanks to Ken and his team at Century 21. ~ Jayne Pacione.Shorewood,Il
    Ken is an excellent realtor. I have used him on several transactions and wouldn't use anyone else ~ Luis Bautista romeoville
    Ken did an excellent job in helping us find our home. He dealt with unexpected homes that we found and did a great job of getting us in there. He also brought us to homes that we weren't interested in, but it really put into perspective what we were looking for, this was really helpful in helping us find what we wanted. He also was extremely responsive to all of the questions I had. He also showed his experience by informing us of the importance of the loan firm and suggested we use someone else which made the process that much easier. Ken made this purchase extremely smooth and I would highly recommend him! ~ Garrett Rogers, Channahon, IL
    Ken Thomson was very trustful and knowledgeable. That's a big plus when you looking for home or selling a home. I never had any worries with Ken. He's not just trying to make a sale. He honest and we need more Ken Thomson in the field today. ~ Natasha Walker, Glendale Heights

Great experience, Mr Ken Thomson is our family realitor! ~ Paul Lutz, Plainfield, Il.
    We consulted with multiple real estate agents before deciding on ken. We decided to hire ken because he seemed to be a genuine person and is a very experienced agent. He was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain every detail of the process in depth to us. I am happy to say he sold our house very quickly, and sold it for more then any other agent said we could get. Ken is indeed a genuinely good person and is in real estate because he enjoys helping people. I will be recommending him to all our friends and family. We look forward to starting the home buying process with Ken next! ~ Rigoberto Bautista, Romeoville

    I had a hard time even getting responses back from other realtors. Within 30 minutes of talking to Ken he got the information I had been waiting months to get from other realtors I contacted!

    Ken was amazing. He patiently explained aspects of the selling process. We came to Ken wanting a quick sale and that is what he delivered. I would definitely recommend his service to others. ~ Sharon G, St. Charles
    Ken did an excellent job marketing the house and was always in concltact with us. He was available at any time we had questions. He was honest when it came to price but also to our wishes into consideration and in the end got us exactly what we wanted. I couldn't think of anything he could have done better. Will recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell any type of property. ~ Paul Lurz Plainfield
    Had worked with Ken before, when we bought our current home. Since we felt very comfortable working with him, it was a "no brainer" to work with him again to sell our condo when the time came. Considering I'm not always the easiest person to reach (I tend not to have my mobile phone glued to me), I knew that I could reach him whenever I needed to, to answer any questions of concerns that I had. He was always very prompt. Ken Thomson knows the business, had researched the area and presented a solid offering price and marketing plan for the sale of the condo. When the first deal fell through, because of the buyer's financing, he immediately had the condo on the market the next day and an offer on the books within a day or so after that. Seems he had kept in contact with other buyer's who were interested the first time we had the condo on the market. Thank you, Ken! ~ Linda B., Plainfield
    Ken has been my agent on several transactions and I would recommend him going forward to family and friends. He is a true real estate professional. ~ Mike- Plainfield
    Ken Thomson contacted me. I went to him and he helped me sell my lot which I wanted to do for a long time. He was honest with me and followed thru on everything he said he would do. He sold it in 2 days and guided me thru it all. ~ Jacqueline Growe, Shorewood
    He did a great job selling our home fast. ~ Sheri-Ann Plainfield

    If you are interested in a property & you want someone that is effective & knowledgeable, then I suggest that you contact Ken Thomson ! He will get the job done to your utmost satisfaction !! ~ Jeanette Cox 24720 George Washington Dr. Plainfield, IL 60544

    Ken was a great fit for us. No pushing honest and no run a round. Just what we needed. Ken was always willing to go above and beyond to help us and was fantastic. We could not have found the home of our dreams with out the patients and hard work from Ken. Ken was very knowledgeable about the area and what we were looking for. I think that comes from experience of knowing your customer and he sure did. Thank you Ken!!!!! ~ Sheri-Ann, Plainfield
    A Realtor you can trust to work for you!!!! Highly recommend!! ~ Ronza Jordan, Aurora

    "Ken was very helpful throughout the entire rental process! He went above and beyond by giving us advice when it came to rental knowledge and tenant applications. You can definitely tell Ken knows what he is talking about and seems extremely genuine which is nice to find in a real estate agent. We will be calling again in the future when it comes time to sell!" Amanda
    "We initially contacted Ken to help us buy a traditional resale of existing homes. From our first meeting with Ken, we were very pleased with his professionalism and knowledge. We had reached out to other realtors prior to meeting Ken, none of which compared to Ken. Ken did his homework on all properties prior to him showing them to us. In addition, Ken was very helpful in looking at homes. He would notice and point out things that we would not see or think to look at, such as signs of water in basements and quality of mechanical equipment. After a few months of looking and not finding the home for us, Ken had mentioned that building could also be a route we might want to look into. He said that by building we could get more for our money than buying an existing home. After meeting with a builder, we decided that new construction was right for us. Ken was with us through the entire process of building. Ken showed great knowledge of the building process and was very helpful, as we have never built before and did not the know the process. Ken helped in our initial negotiations with the builder, helping us get many free upgrades. He was also there for our color session, pre-construction meeting, and our walk-throughs. Ken was always there at our finger tips, available for us to contact seven days a week with prompt responses. He would address any questions we had and was our laison with the builder. He ensured the building process was going smoothly and if/when it wasn't he would be in contact with the builder getting things corrected. He made the building process much easier on us. I would recommend Ken to anyone who is looking to buy an existing home or for new construction. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to get along with. After closing, it felt like we were saying bye to friend/family member, because of the relationship we had developed with Ken the past year. If we ever are looking to sell and buy a home again in the future, Ken will be our first and only choice." Josh
    "Ken did an AMAZING job!!! Another broker gave us the run around for months, within 48 hours of hiring Ken we had prospective buyers viewing the home. We were able to sell the home within three months. He worked, with speed and knowledge. Our situation was the need for a short sale and Ken handled every aspect with professionalism! Professional, market knowledge and speed!!" George
    "I would recommend Ken to anyone! He stepped up and did an amazing job after dealing with a not so good company. He worked quickly swiftly and for me. I am extremely satisfied!!!" Melanie

Garrett
    "Ken was great to work with, honest and had our best interest in mind. He was always available, and was able to answer any questions that I had. If he didn't know the answer off hand, he would find out the information and get back to me promptly. His knowledge of the areas and the type of home I was looking for was impeccable. Ken is a true professional and I would recommend him highly for anyone looking for a new home and/or selling your current home." Christine
    "I can't say enough about what an awesome realtor Ken is. Selling a house is a very stressful time in someone's life, and Ken was always helpful in calming my nerves and explaining every step in the selling process.

He was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain every detail of the process in depth to us. I am happy to say he sold our house very quickly, and sold it for more then any other agent said we could get. Ken is indeed a genuinely good person and is in real estate because he enjoys helping people. I will be recommending him to all our friends and family. We look forward to starting the home buying process with Ken next!" Rigoberto

Suzy

    "Ken is one of the most thorough & professional realtor's that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting !! I had my eye on the cutest, most adorable town home located in Plainfield, IL....& thanks to Ken...I got it !! My memorable journey began in March 2015. The home would not be available until July, 2015, but I made up my mind...I wanted it !!! I'm happy to say that I moved into my dream home & am totally satisfied & extremely happy ! None of this would have happened with my dedicated realtor, Ken Thomson !!" Jasmine
    "We found Ken to be very informed and helpful in our buying process. It was nice of him to "warn" us about the construction on Route 30 that was going to be going on for the next couple of years." Linda
    "Ken was wonderful to work with. He was on top of getting things done and keeping us informed. He was willing to help in any way that he could. He even offered to help make repairs before the appraisal. Very approachable and easy to talk to." Kate
    "Ken helped give me a fresh perspective and was able to get my house in the shape it needed to have a buyer immediately. If you are not afraid to hear the truth, Ken is your guy. Thanks Ken." Matt
    "Ken helped me to purchase my first home and was very knowledgeable about the entire process. He explained everything as it was happening and knew so much about the local areas I was searching in. Ken was always ready to show me homes, even with my unusual work schedule. Buying your first home is a stressful time, but Ken made the entire process much easier to understand and get through." Natalie
    "The realtor for the purchase of our townhome was Ken Thomson. Ken was very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. He was available 24/7 to show us through numerous homes and answer all of our questions. He guided us through the buying process and removed a great amount of stress from our shoulders. The entire purchase process went smoothly due to Ken's expertise. My wife and I would strongly recommend that you make Ken Thomson your next real estate agent!" Paul
    "Ken helped me sell a few properties and buy one recently, and he exceeded all my expectations in all these transactions. He is prompt, detailed, knowledgeable, friendly, and always made himself available.

    "Ken was very instrumental in helping me to find a commercial property for my business. Because the ideal property choices for my business were rather limited, his vision and objectiveness helped me to decide which one would work out the best for my specific situation. Although he was not a 'hardball' negotiator (a plus in my opinion), his professional, yet laid back demeanor and great follow through made a complicated and stressful transaction less taxing. His communication with the seller's agent was outstanding. Together they kept the ball rolling when I thought for sure it was a dead deal. I would highly recommend Ken to my friends and family." Tim
    "I have used Ken on several real estate deals. Most recently on the sale of my parents estate. He is perfect for unique situations. He is very patient helpful, honest and supportive. He will tell you what you need to hear not just what you want to hear. Always willing to literally go the extra mile. He even helped clean out my parents garage and staged their house perfectly. His pictures on the virtual tour were excellent. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of his trade. I also used Ken on investment property deals and found him to be very reliable and always quick to return phone calls. I highly recommend Ken for all real estate needs he gets the job done." Suzanne
    "I highly recommend Ken to anyone who wants results! He has sold two properties for me in this difficult real estate market. I could not ask for anything more from a realtor. He is motivated, engaged, professional, knowledgable, everything you could want! He is also very respectful and understanding of the emotions involved in this life experience. He has made these as easy as he could for me. My description for Ken is he is a "Mover and a Shaker". He is on top of everything and I enthusiastically recommend him if you are looking for a full-time dedicated partner in your next real estate transaction." Sue
    "Ken did whatever it took to get my home sold. He kept me updated throughout the process and exhibited the highest level of professionalism my wife and I could have asked for. He has a unique understanding of the market I highly recommend Ken if you are looking for somebody who will commit to your cause and give you the result you desire. Thank you Ken for all your help." Emmanuel
    "Ken did a great job helping us find our home. He was very flexible and took us to see 15+ homes before we made our final decision. We purchased our home in the Bolingbrook/Plainfield area and we've never met anyone who knows the area better than Ken (school zones, housing builders/designs, etc.). He answered all of our questions thoroughly and was always quick to respond to any inquiry. When it came time to make an offer, Ken was very helpful in the negotiation stage and saved us some money. Ken helped us sell our home a couple years back and we will use him again when we sell this home 10-20 years from now. We would highly recommend Ken to help you buy or sell your home. Great experience." Jeremy
    "Ken was very good in explaining the details of how the selling of my house would go. He went over the contract and explained everything in the contract to me. He provided me with a listing of houses that has sold in my area and the purchase price so I would have an idea of what to ask...He described how to arrange house for best showing to clients...Even with the harsh winter we had, several showings were arranged and he touched base with me after each showing to let me know how things went...I would highly recommend his services to anyone who wishes to sell their home." Hoby
    "Ken helped me with the sale of my home and is also helping with my next purchase. He did a great job finding comps and listing my home at the right price. His pictures were of great quality and they highlighted the best features of my home. I had five showings the first day on the market and an offer that same evening. Ken was helpful in the negotiation process and I felt I received a good price for my home. He is easy to get in touch with and always answered my questions promptly. As I continue my search for another home, I am confident that Ken will be there to offer his expertise. I would strongly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home." Dawn
    "Ken helped my husband and I find our dream house to raise our family. He patiently showed us home after home while we had our very energetic toddler running around with us and me waddling around pregnant. His recommendations for everyone from a radon inspector, home inspector, attorney, etc. were all stellar. Extremely knowledgable about all matters related to real estate as well as local eateries. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell a home in the Plainfield/Naperville/Bolingbrook area." Annalisa
    "Very detail oriented agent. I called multiple agents and brokers. Had a difficult time getting anyone to call me back in a reasonable amount of time (most called back in 2-4 days). Ken called me back immediately and continued to be responsive through the entire process. If you are looking for an agent/broker to work with you would be remiss in not taking the time to call Ken. He is extremely knowledgeable on foreclosures and short sales. He knows the area and knows which listings are worth seeing and a GOOD buy!!! I highly recommend Ken and will definitely be using him when we sell and buy our next house!!!!" Ronza
    "Ken Thomson is an excellent real estate agent. We listed our home with Ken in February 2013 and sold in June 2013! Ken has also helped us buy a home with incredible support and knowledge. Our contract was placed in August 2013 and we closed September 2013! Ken provided accurate knowledge of our buying and selling areas. He is also very experienced with different processes of real estate situations. I would strongly recommend Ken to friends and family!" Dave
    "Ken was a Rock Star when it came to this purchase! He is very professional and to the point. We were done and closed in less than 30 days from start to finish, that included the all the inspections and financing. I followed his recommendations on every step of the way and it flew right through contract, inspections and finance. I have worked with a number of real estate brokers over the last 30 years and not one of them are in the same league as Ken. Until I worked with Ken I have always felt that brokers "have a license to steal"! Ken works for his money and he is very good at what he does!!!" Mike
    "We have worked with Ken on multiple transactions and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He did an excellent job in sharing his professional opinion without being pushy. His knowledge and opinions were very helpful but his responsiveness in answering our questions and communicating with us (even when we didn't have our home listed yet) is what we felt made him such an outstanding real estate professional." Jean
    "Ken made my first home search very easy and stress free. He has the best skill and experience in every area. He is very honest and goes above and beyond what a typicial broker would do for you. Me and my family will always be using him in the future." Stephanie
    "Wow! What a great experience we had working with Ken. He provided clear explanations for each and every question we had -- and we had a lot of them. He set realistic expectations not only with us, but with the other agents who brought potential buyers through our home. His photographs and video slide show highlighted all of the great features in our home including the unique design and custom details. He knew just what to do to position our home in the market. Since we were working with a relocation company, Ken's experience in this area also helped us stay one step ahead with everything they required us to do. I hope Ken will consider a move to Michigan (where we moved) so that when we need to buy or sell another home he could hep us again. Ken is a true professional and a man of intelligence and integrity." Pam
    "Ken helped us sell our home this year (2013) at a price over $300,000 -- well above the price of anything sold for in our neighborhood since 2009. He understood the unique quality and custom craftsmanship in our home and created a video slideshow that highlighted all of its assets. Ken provided honest and clear explanations at every step of the way from staging, listing, showing, negotiating and ultimately selling our home. His keen attention to detail and expertise with relocation companies also helped us stay a step ahead of their requirements to ensure a smooth closing. Ken is a straight shooter, and a person of great intelligence and integrity. We would work with him again in a heartbeat." Chris
    "Ken was fantastic! All around a great guy who knows his stuff inside and out, and most importantly was available to us whenever we needed him. He made sure that we knew he was there for us 7 days a week, all hours of the day. And if he needed to get back to us, his responsiveness was superb. Ken assisted us with both the selling of our current home along with the purchase of our new home. Overall, my husband and I have nothing but great things to say about working side by side with Ken. We would most definitely recommend him to all!" Sue
    "Ken worked with us on the initial purchase and through rentals to four tenants. Each time he has been professional, very helpful and responsive, and most importantly able to rent our property quickly, without a period of unplanned vacancy. I'd highly recommend Ken for his expertise in the local market." Christine
    "We enjoyed working with Ken and expect to use his services in the future when the need arises. We found him to be very responsive to our inquiries. He made good recommendations that suited us well. He really listens and does what he says he's going to do, which we appreciated very much. He prepared us for all transactions and was there to advise and represent us." Charlene
    "Really trustworthy realtor. After working with 4 other realtors prior to Ken, it was so refreshing to have someone who was will to work with and for me. I'm in my new home and very happy I am. Ken went the extra mile in this sale and he will forever have my business. He's also helping me with my rental property and he has earned my highest recommendations." Michelle
    "My wife and I just bought our first home working with Ken. The entire process was simplified by working with Ken and his connections. We were guided through the entire process and as I first time home buyer and could not have felt more comfortable. He knew everything about the neighborhoods and homes. My wife and I are extremely happy with our new home. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone." David
    "I have worked with Ken several times, as a buyer and a seller. I find him to be extremely knowedgeable and very personable. I would most definitely use him again and would highly recommend him to anyone." Jean
    "Ken is a full time realtor who knows his market extensively. He did not waste my time showing me properties that didn't fit my profile. He returns calls promptly and follows through on unresolved items. I have recommended Ken to friends and they have thanked me for this introduction. I will utilize his services for all of my real estate needs." Marc
    "My husband and I had an amazing experience with Ken. He really knew how to manage our needs and look for exactly the house specifications that we wanted. We would definitely recommend using Ken as your agent!" Barb
    "I used Ken to list my parent's home, which was difficult enough after my mom passed away. He was tenacious, diligent and worked hard to close the deal despite numerous set-backs. He helped me through the process and encouraged me getting the house listed even after losing one buyer." Sherry
    "Ken Thomson helped us many times to sell the house buy properties and put properties for rent and find tenants. His working efficiency, great knowledge not only of buying and selling property also of everything related to property like appliances, materials, repairing technology, contractors...made us to use his service again and again. And recommended to our friends, they gave positive review too." Jean
