    • Kim and Ken's team at the Elite Home Group did an outstanding job of selling my home and finding me a new one. They all were there for me throughout to insure that I was well informed on all the details during the process of buying and selling a home. Their knowledge of the industry and professional work ethic made it a smooth and easy transition going from one home into another. Erica was great and worked really hard to find me a fantastic property in a lovely neighborhood, while Ken worked and handled the showings and sale of my home bringing in a solid offer that I accepted.The entire staff including Bevin, Betty, Dane and Kim all offered their expertise in coordinating every aspect of the sale of my home and the purchase of my new one.I put my trust in the Elite Home Group for all my real estate needs and was rewarded with results that exceeded all expectations. Give Kim and Ken the opportunity to earn your trust.

    • Kim helped us through the complete process of selling our house. She guided us through the steps of getting the house ready, listing and marketing. Our house sold within a few days. We were extremely pleased with the outcome. Kim and her team are magnificent! I highly recommend them.

    • I reached out to Kim after seeing that they were the clear real estate leaders in Fallbrook. Kim walked through our property and provided no pressure suggestions to improve the value and decrease the likely time on the market. Once the property was listed the concierge services made for a fantastic and seamless experience. The entire team and Kim and Ken is absolutely top notch. Kim led the way with her negotiation skills during the negotiation and escrow process. You can't go wrong with this top quality team that offers nothing less than first class service.

    • With the rise in real estate prices, I decided 2018 was the right time to put my former residence on the market. I knew Kim Carlson had the experience and knowledge of my neighborhood to get the job done. Through her contacts I was able to obtain reasonable prices for painting, carpeting and cleaning. Her team is excellent and well coordinated. I received multiple offers after the first open house. Her team kept me apprised throughout the entire process. Using DocuSign, I was able to approve all necessary documents without having to travel. The property sold for $14k above asking price. I highly recommend Kim Carlson, Ken Follis and her team.

    • Kim is amazing! Working with her was a real pleasure. I would recommend her to anyone in need of an agent. She was very attentive and always had my best interest in mind. Very trust worthy and professional.

    • Kim, Ken, Betty and the entire team are amazing. They found the perfect home for our family. Their negotiating skills helped us beat out multiple offers on the home we purchased. Within days of listing our house we received multiple offers all above the list price. The team handled virtually everything and made it effortless for us. This team knows what they are doing! To top it off they are kind, honest good hearted people. Thank you Kim & Ken Real Estate.

    • We hired another agent before we hired Kim and Ken. After 60 days nothing much happened. I fired the first one and hired these two....it was like night and day. Not only are these two outstanding but their staff is unbelievable....constant updates and follow thru. We found them to be readily available and highly competent.

    • Our home was sold quickly and effortlessly for the amount of money we were looking for. Our home was very special, but it helped to have a team that are really knowledgeable in the small community to get a good flow of the right people through. Thanks Kim, Andrea, Beven, Betty and team.

    • Kim is helpful, honest, realistic, genuine, and experienced. Her work and the assistance of her staff made our search for a new home as easy as possible, and they supported us in a variety of ways the entire time.

    • After having very discouraging experiences with two previous realtors, it was a very welcome relief to work with Kim and her team. The contrast could not have been greater, and her expertise, along with her group of professionals in every field of real estate made selling our house a reality. No matter what kind of hiccup we encountered, dealing with an older house with its own set of unique challenges, there was always someone ready, willing, and able to get beyond it and move forward. There is so much more to actually selling a home than just putting up a sign and hoping it sells. And Kim has the experience and expertise to make it happen as smoothly as is possible. She recognizes who is a potential buyer, and doesn't waste time on those who really aren't truly interested. Honest, hard working, reliable, responsive, I can't imagine anyone else doing all she did, and her entire staff are all top notch, best in the business. Thank you to all, and I highly, highly recommend Kim and Ken if you are considering anything in real east, buying or selling.

    • We have bought and sold a few homes, and our transaction with Kim and Ken was by far our best and least stressful experience. When things came up that were stressful, they handled everything for us and provided confident reassurance. It was great to finally just pick a house and let the realtors take care of the transaction. I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling a house in my area. They really know their stuff, and their communication is fantastic.

    • Kim Carlson and her entire staff were great from start to finish on the sale of our home. In the beginning we all sat down and agreed on a price and strategy. They took it from there. The photographer did a great job including drone photos from above. As soon as the house was marketed, we started getting viewings by qualified buyers and their agents. Without even an open house we had multiple offers. We got over our asking price and they allowed us to live in our home even after the close of escrow until our new home that's being built is done. Everything we asked of Kim and associates came true including the rent back I just mentioned.

    • Kim and Betty were absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the whole process. They were professional, quick to respond and walked us through every step. Their expertise and warm sincerity made this very stressful process of buying our first home successful. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will pass their contact information any friend or family member.

    • Kim is GREAT! This group has seamlessly gotten us through three transactions. My wife and I would recommend to anyone looking to purchase or sell their property. Kim and her team are extremely knowledgeable, quick to answer any questions, and just an overall pleasure to work with.

    • Kim Carlson is, without exception, the VERY BEST real estate professional there is! I have conducted several real estate transactions where Kim has represented me as buyers agent and sellers agent over the past 25 years, and each time the transaction is handled expertly and professionally. I'm a difficult client, and I know that, but each time Kim's experience and expertise have come through for me for successful transactions. I highly recommend Kim !

    • I want to express my gratitude to Kim Carlson and her amazing staff for helping me with the house I recently purchased in Shadowridge. Her real estate knowledge and professionalism are the reason I got an excellent deal. She knows what she is doing! I recommend her to anyone! I am a first-time buyer and a very happy customer. Thank you again to Kim and her staff.

    • We know we made the right choice with Kim and Ken! We were looking for a very specific type of property. Kim and Ken helped us find it, but that was just the beginning. Between their knowledge and experience, we felt comfortable and informed through out the buying process. They were more than exceptional agents negotiating on our behalf...they CARED! They went above and beyond at every opportunity. Thank you Kim, Ken and their incredible team for making our dream a reality.

    • We had never sold a house before and needed to do so quickly as we were moving out of state! Kim guided us through the whole process making sure we closed promptly so we could purchase our new property on time. Her team are outstanding and went over and beyond our expectations. They deserve a medal for all their hard work and professionalism.

      - J. Pickering
    • Ken, Kim and their team did a fantastic job of selling our home. From beginning to end they were excellent at guiding us through the Cumbersome details and paperwork, scheduling and showings, that come with home sales. If anyone is thinking of putting their home on the market, I highly recommend this duo of professionals (and they are nice folks too!)

      - G. Parks
    • We found them to be extremely Proffessional in every way, genuinely caring, always available to advice, and very good in ironing out every minor detail during the Escrow period in a professional and kind manner. As their Client they encourage you to use their Cargo Van for personal small moves free of charge. We strongly recommend Kim & Ken and their excellent Team in Sale or Purchase of Real Estate.

      - Ruk H.
    • We interviewed several Realtors and selected Kim Carlson and Ken Follis. They have great marketing and sales skills. Kim and Ken took the time to know our property and did most of the showings themselves. We always felt our home was in good hands even if we were out of town. Their staff is excellent and we always had a response if questions came up. They were all helpful in the sales and closing process and we would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling in Fallbrook or Bonsall, however they sell homes in many other areas as well.

    • Our experience with Kim Carlson and Ken Follis was excellent. Any questions or concerns we may have had were handled quickly and courteously. They were at every showing of our home which was greatly appreciated. As a result of their widespread advertisement, there were many showings. Our home was sold and we have recommended them to our friends. Thanks to their team, the final preparations and paperwork necessary to complete the sale went very smoothly.
