You may not even realize how much you helped us in our quest for a new permanent (dream) home in Wilton Manors. From the very beginning, you demonstrated a keen understanding of our preferences. God bless you for daring to steer us away from what might have been a few potential disasters! You helped us to better understand the relationship between certain home features, such as roof type, impact windows, etc., and, owner insurance premiums. Your recommendations regarding inspections and insurance carriers served us extremely welI. Settlement was a breeze, despite the fact that we sold in Delaware on Monday and settled in Florida on Friday! Since our first visit to your office last year, Duane and I began following your website with intense interest. While our house in Rehoboth Beach was on the market, we watched as some of our favorite homes came and went, almost despairing that we would not find our dream home. But during our quick exploratory week’s visit in May, we found the ideal home the first day, thanks for your diligence! In my lifetime I’ve dealt with more than ten realtors, most of them good. Ken Calhoun be1ongs in the highest category· THE VERY BEST!”

I’ve dealt with many realtors over years. None of them were as professional and caring as Jeremy Willard! Jeremy worked very hard to get me the condo I wanted. Jeremy still keeps in touch with me. Jeremy is an awesome person and Realtor. l highly recommend him if you are looking for property. Thank you, Jeremy, for your hard work and dedication.

“Without hesitation, we were confident that Ken Calhoun was the right person to represent us in our most recent real estate transaction. Ken’s knowledge of the real estate market, keen insight into local marketing nuances and strategic approach to the process was the reason that our property ended up selling at 30% over the asking price. Ken was a great partner throughout the transaction, never missing a detail.

Jeremy was amazing to say the least. I moved from Southwest Florida to the Ft. Lauderdale area the beginning of December 2015. My roommate and I started the process of deciding to move and look for places about a month and a half prior to that. Jeremy was so wonderful and so amazing in finding places that suited our needs. The communication between him, my roommate and myself was above and beyond. He made sure he kept us abreast of everything that was going on with phone calls, text messages and emails to my roommate and myself. He took his time and answered any questions I had possible and dispelled any worries that I had. Jeremy was very accommodating and If I decide to move again l will be using him without a doubt.

“These are words that describe Ken Calhoun: knowledgeable, honest, dependable and always available. Ken kept us focused during our home search which took us on a roller coaster of emotions. When we felt like we were ready to throw in the towel and give up our dream of owning a home, Ken continued to motivate us, Ken’s experience and knowledge in the frenzied real estate market helped us learn how to make offers and move quickly when needed. Ken has a great rapport with other, agents and is highly respected. Although it took us a while to find it, with Ken’s help we finally found our dream home. Ken knows how to get the deal done and he referred us to amazing people that we were able to work with like the mortgage broker, building, and pest inspectors, title/escrow agent – all top notch people like Ken. Ken Calhoun is the agent that really does make the dream of home ownership happen”

“Ken was an excellent aid and adviser. We had difficulty at first finding an agent with other agencies who would listen to our needs, but when we met Ken, we soon found ourselves out and about looking at houses that actually made sense! Ken advised us on things to look out for which was very helpful to first-time buyers in this tough market. Ken was extremely responsive when we had a question of any kind, responding to voicemails and emails as though each one were a priority! Once we found a place and moved in, Ken provided references for contractors, gardeners, garage specialists, you name it. He has always been courteous and flexible in assisting us with our needs. I would highly recommend Ken to other first time buyers as a patient real estate agent who helps buyers learn how lo handle the real estate market and make the most of their house hunting experience. Thanks again, Ken!

“I met Ken at on Open House in October 2002. Ken quickly become a friend as well as a Real Estate advisor. My needs are mainly for investment and therefore I am not an easy client. So for, I have purchased 3 homes from Ken. He is straightforward and trustworthy – I work with Realtors in many cities and Ken is my first choice.”

Coming from out of town (Rochester, NY). we were fortunate enough to find Jeremy Willard in the Wilton Manors/Oakland Park area we were searching for our new home. He answered all of our questions, no matter how trivial; scheduled more than our fair share at house viewings and was always delightful. He possesses a great knowledge of the housing available, neighborhoods and activities. Everyone he recommended to assist us during the purchase, were excellent, including the broker, lawyer, housing inspectors, and insurance company. Jeremy was brilliant at keeping the closing milestones on track with documentation and communicating with everyone involved. I would not hesitate to use Jeremy in the future and highly recommend him for anyone baking for housing in the Broward County area.

“Ken did a wonderful job of matching my price range, aesthetic and neighborhood preferences, so our properly shopping was very efficient. When it came lime to make an offer, he provided me with comps that helped me make a fair and favorable offer on a condo. When I graduate from my loft to a bigger pad, I intend to use him again!”

Anne W.

 

Jeremy was probably the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure of using. He was beyond professional, was friendly, knowledgeable and above oil very patient. Even though I was looking for just o small apartment Jeremy took the time to help find a place, do the paperwork and navigate the insanity that can be real estate. He was very familiar with the area and would check in periodically afterward to ensure I was settled and content. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of assistance buying or selling.

“I retired offer being a County Appraiser For over 35 years working with dozens of realtors over all those years. We found Ken Calhoun to be the most conscientious, kindest, friendliest, concerning, knowledgeable, efficient and most helpful realtor we have ever met, let alone ever asked lo help us find and buy our condo here in South Florida. Ken went above and beyond what we expected a realtor to do to help us. Not only would we recommend him for your real estate needs, we will again ask him to help us when we get ready to upgrade from this condo to another condo or townhouse or house. Ken will earn your friendship and respect for a great realtor as he did ours. We believe you will have an amazing experience like we did if you ask Ken to help you because believe it or not KEN CAN HELP you.”

Ken is the best realtor in Florida!!! Ken provides top notch full realtor service to all his clients. We recently just purchased an investment/retirement property in Oakland Park all the way from Toronto, Canada! It was a short sale so it took almost 11 months but Ken was keeping us updated and informed throughout the process. We felt very comfortable working with Ken and he was very good at getting back to us promptly (even though we had a lot of questions!) We couldn’t have found our dream vacation home without Ken. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone looking for a property near Fort Lauderdale!!!

“Jeremy worked with me to determine my needs and then was very helpful in helping me find a home that just right. I could not have had a better  gent to work with during this process.”

Edmond Todd Overhultz

 

Ken is the best real estate agent I have ever encountered! He works tirelessly to find his clients the right properties for them and then assists in all ways to make the deal move ahead smoothly. No one knows the Fort Lauderdale market better then him and I am so pleased that I have the ideal condo for my retirement.

Dr. Eric Zafran

 

“We can’t praise Jeremy enough! He was our agent for purchase of a condo in Fort Lauderdale. We contacted Jeremy a full two years before we planned to permanently move from California to Fort Lauderdale. Jeremy stuck with us that entire time and quickly responded to our numerous requests for information. Jeremy’s knowledge of the Fort Lauderdale market is extensive, and he expertly guided us while narrowing down our list of options before we arrived. The selection of our first choice and offer went very quickly because of this extensive research. It is important to add that Jeremy works seamlessly with Ken Calhoun. Their “tag team” partnership culminated in the purchase of a condo that satisfied all of our criteria and that was well within our budget. What stands out most for us: Jeremy’s patience, professionalism, responsiveness, and demeanor. You can’t ask for a better agent!”

Kirk & Simone Dotson

 

I highly recommend Ken! He is honest, personable and really knows the business of Ft. Lauderdale real estate. As president of my home owners association we needed help with sales and rentals….where other realtors made promises they could not keep, Ken delivered! You will not find a better realtor in Ft. Lauderdale/Wilton Manors. Give Ken a call! Stephen Greenberg Ken is the BEST. Ken helped me find a great condo in an excellent location just where I wanted, in Fort Lauderdale, near Las Olas Blvd and steps from the beach. It wasn’t easy. If it were not for Ken’s professionalism, diligent work, and tell-it-like-it-is attitude, it would never have happened. Considering myself a ‘property virgin’ with a million questions and an unrealistic perspective of the housing market, I’m sure it wasn’t easy for Ken. But he was always there, responding to each of my questions promptly. I don’t think anyone will find a more hardworking agent who represents your interest than Ken can. I highly recommend him and will certainly use him again in the future.

“This is a great agent! Only showed us properties that were in our price range and in the area in which we were interested. A true professional and very pleasant to work with. We highly recommend him. Thank you.”

Fred & Joseph Sorg

 

“I was new to the Fort Lauderdale and Jeremy helped me define my search for a condo to a few neighborhoods where I would feel at home. We looked at several places and he made sure every one was within my budget. He sent me weekly updates with newly listed properties and asked for my feedback so that he could better understand my preferences. When we found the perfect place, he made sure the sellers installed a really nice door instead of cheap one they were planning to install. He followed up after the sale to make sure everything was ok.”

Scott Ripple

 

We highly recommend Ken, and the “Ken Can Help” team including Jeremy Willard! We were searching for a home in the Fort Lauderdale area but living in the Northeast. Not knowing much about the area at the time, We contacted Ken out of the blue for help. He and his team went above and beyond to help us find our perfect home! After lining up several homes for us to look at, his expertise got us throughout the negotiation and closing. Now we are in our dream home and loving it. Ken and Jeremy are fun, friendly, very efficient and customer driven.

Dennis Hartnett

 

“If you need a real estate professional I highly recommend Jeremy Willard. He helped me find a great home in a very tough market, walked through all of the situations together, and gave me solid advise throughout. He is very thoughtful and strategic and therefore anticipated situations in advance, and once they presented he offered solutions. The end result is that I now have a nice home. Thank you Jeremy.”

Todd Amrhein

 

“We could not have been happier with Jeremy. He was very informative, patient, and willing to answer our questions. We have recommended him to several of our friend, some will be moving to FL in the near future. 5 star…all star. ”

Dougall Beaton & Mark Ramirez

 

“I just wanted to say thank you for working with me and finding the beautiful condo in Pompano. I’m so excited and looking forward to spending lime there. It was a pleasure working with you and please keep in touch.”

Steve S.

 

“What can I say about Jeremy Willard? Since the very first time I spoke with Jeremy he has always been helpful, courteous, knowledgeable and very positive! He found an apartment for me to rent but did not stop there: He helped me to adapt to a new place and did it always with a smile and a sweet disposition But MOST importantly: Mr Willard found my DREAM house– not an easy feat! He found a house which outdid my expectations in every which way! I am not exaggerating!!!! Mr Willard has always been available to help me with any request I have had. He has gone over and beyond what I could have expected from a Real Estate agent. I give him an A plus, plus, plus. Triple A Rating!!! Thank you Mr Willard!! ”

Samuel Picciotto

 

Ken was tireless in a search for a property for me. In the above, I hesitated to give Ken 5 stars not because he is not entitled to five stars for “Process expertise”. I could have, if the 5 star “remark” were to have been “excellent” and not “masterful”.However, I would if his name were Frank Lloyd Wright!!! Best of luck to my friend Ken Calhoun.

Allen Mullins

 

Since 2012, Ken has helped me purchase several excellent properties. He also has assisted me in renting properties. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and (unlike several other agents) extremely responsive.

David Mcqueen

 

I highly recommend Ken to anyone planning to list their home for sale. He showed great knowledge of the Broward County real estate market; did exactly what he said he would do; was always on time and prepared; made suggestions for improvements to my home that increased its marketability and enhanced its value; and created excitement for the property within the real estate community. But, most of all, I recommend Ken because he is an honest, genuine and caring person who exceeded all of my expectations.

Rob Lund

 

Ken is the absolute best real estate agent I’ve worked with (and I’ve worked with a lot). My partner and I were coming in from Chicago and on short notice, Ken was able to juggle his schedule to accommodate our aggressive search for a place in the Fort Lauderdale area. He knew we were anxious to make a decision and could have just shown us 2-3 places. Instead he took the time to consult with us and make sure we were making an informed decision. He went above-and-beyond his typical responsibilities in showing us out-of-towners the area, explaining some of the history and pointing out places of interest. His attention didn’t end when the contract was signed either, he knew we were traveling back-and-forth and made extra effort to keep us informed and on track until closing. I highly recommend Ken Calhoun and wouldn’t consider buying my next place in Florida with anyone else!

Joe Propst

 

KEN TO THE RESCUE!!!!! My husband and I were trying to rent our condo on our own when I was referred to Ken. Ken came to our condo and took pictures. He went over the contract with u, made some suggestions and within a month the property was rented. My only regret is that we did not call him sooner. I would highly recommend Ken and in the future, I will use him for any and all of my real estate needs.

Stephanie Fisher

 

“If I were to buy another house, I would enlist Ken as my agent again. Within a matter of a few weeks, he took me from the type of house I thought I first wanted to buy to the type I REALLY wanted to buy. Only he knew what that was before I did. And since the sale he continued to provide me with useful information. I’d definitely recommend Ken!”

David Korn

 

If you want to cut to the chase, find what you want that is within your budget, and have fun doing it..call Ken. On two separate referrals by both conservative friends, and one that is very liberal, Ken was the guy! I made a specific trip to the area and Ken blocked out 3 days for our search. After online reviews… final selections were visited (15 houses if not more). Nothing was too my liking and I was ready to head home. Except the last one. Perfect to say the least. Put in a strategic but firm offer and got it!! On my closing, I had airline issues and was 3 hours late.. with Ken’s connections we were still able to close after 6:00pm! Ken was instrumental in securing all insurances, lawyers and post closing needs like contractors, landscapers etc.. Couldn’t be happier.. Jeremy, his associate, is as top notch as well and was there to assist when and if Ken wasn’t. Thanks men!! oh btw.. and you get cookies when your close!! 🙂

I was referred to Ken Calhoun by a Real Estate Agent friend of mine after I had conducted my own due diligent research for someone to assist me in the purchase of a Condominium Apartment in the Fort Lauderdale area. I subsequently found Ken and his Assistant Jeremy Willard to be two of the easiest, most professional & sensitively responsive people I encountered. The best testament that I can make about my Real Estate relationship with Ken and Jeremy is the fact that I ended up very happily purchasing two Condominium Apartment Units using their expert guidance in less than a three month period of time.
