Ken Elving's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Ken Elving

    • Ken's professionalism is unmatched he is always helpful and accessible I would not hesitate to recommend him. In 2010 we made an offer on a property that we intended to remodel and rehabilitate into our retirement home the negotiations went back and forth and were very smooth. In the same year we listed and sold the home we were living in to start our new project that sale was also conducted without incident and timely. Ken is always respectful and ready to help.

    • I have used Ken on seven transactions over the past 26 years. I was impressed then and continue to be with his work ethic and real estate knowledge. I would not hesitate to recommend him. In addition to the purchase and sale process the transactions have involved some special issues such as condo association building requirements, underground tank testing and abatement, requirements for licensing of a business in the county, lease option on a sale of property.

    • Ken did an excellent job guiding my wife and I through the process of buying our first home. He met all the foundational expectations of an effective agent -- professional, organized, and courteous -- and, in addition, we felt like Ken went the extra mile to keep us in the know throughout the process. This approach made us feel comfortable and confident as the deal progressed while allowing for adequate planning for the move. I highly recommend Ken and his team.

    • Ken is a very experienced, knowledgeable realtor. He is skilled at his job and his ethics are of the highest caliber. Ken is a hard worker and is very diligent. He returns calls promptly and is very responsive to the needs of his clients. I could not recommend him more highly.

    • I have worked with Ken for nearly 30 years buying residential and income properties. His expertise and knowledge of the local market is an invaluable resource. In the past year he handled 3 transactions for me and I know his expertise is what made the deals work each time. Ken is responsive, is an expert in the field and is very easy to work with.

    • Ken was very helpful and very considerate during my home buying process. Since this was my first time buying a home, I had a lot of questions about home buying. Ken was always making sure that my questions were answered rapidly. I felt very comfortable to have Ken as my realtor, I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling their property.

    • As most Baby Boomers I was tasked with selling the family home when my parents had to move into an independent living facility. Not an easy task selling a property that needed some TLC, was unique in nature and had some zoning restrictions that limited our buyer pool. Ken did an excellent job of evaluating the property and marketing it in a professional manner. I was a motivated seller, I wanted the house sold and off my plate. When offers were received Ken's experience in negotiations really paid off. Our final selling price exceeded my expectations. There were some repairs that needed to be done, his team of maintenance and repair people got the job done very quickly and without any hassles on my part, best of all the cost for repairs (Ken got bids for me) saved me a bundle. My transaction was not a garden variety real estate transaction, it required the skill and knowledge of an experienced real estate professional. Ken is that person.

    • Three years ago we enlisted Matel Property Management to oversee the rental of our property in Modesto, we live out of state. Every month we were sent a very detailed summary of activities, any cost entailed as well as our check. Whenever I had a question, our property manager was very prompt, knowledgeable, and helpful. When we decided to sell the property, our transactions needed to be done by phone and e-mail. Ken Elving was our listing agent and provided quality service. In fact, we listed the house on a Tuesday, the following Thursday, 6:30 AM I received a call from Ken indicating there were three offers!During the closing process he was very quick to send signature papers to us and respond to any questions. I believe his expertise and long successful history in the business made our having to all of this from a distance painless.

    • Ken was WONDERFUL and I'm not just saying that! The house he sold for me had been a rental, had been trashed and was a probate sale. There was no hope for a conventional loan. As soon as we put it up for sale he quickly (within a week) called me with five offers and we sold at full price!
