Customer Testimonials


“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 lower insurance premiums.  Your recommendations regarding inspections and insurance carriers served us extremely well.  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 belongs in the highest category: THE VERY BEST!”

Robert S. Makinen & Duane L. Cipollini


“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 time there. It was a pleasure working with you and please keep in touch.”

Steve Sharkey


“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 over 30% of the asking price. Ken was a great partner throughout the transaction, never missing a detail.”

Phillip Weichel & Bob Dobrich


“Ken Calhoun recently sold a single-family home for an estate which I am a trustee. I found Ken knowledgable and efficient. Throughout our relationship, he was consistently helpful and easy and pleasant to deal with. In addition, the eventual selling price for the property was much more than we had anticipated, due to Ken’s promotional skills and to his excellent sense of market timing. I would not hesitate to highly recommend him for any future property transactions. ”

Andy Canepa


“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 ride 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”

Andrew and Carrie Parker


“We wanted to take a moment and thank you for all your hard work in helping us find our first home. We appreciate your patience and the fact that you listened to us as we tried to figure out what it was that we were looking for in our first home. We also appreciate your honesty and forthrightness. It felt very comfortable to know that you were in our corner. We will not hesitate for a second to recommend you to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. And the best compliment that we can give you is that if we move in the future, you’ll be the first person we call to help.”

William Dorgan & Eileen Dennehy


“I met Ken at an Open House in October 2002. Ken quickly became a friend as well as a Real Estate advisor. My needs are mainly for investment and therefore I am not an easy client . So far, 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.”

Jeff Halper


“Ken was an excellent aid and advisor. 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 to handle the real estate market and make the most of their house hunting experience. Thanks again, Ken!

Mary and Tom Waller


“Ken did a wonderful job of matching my price range, aesthetic and neighborhood preferences, so our property shopping was very efficient. When it came time 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 Wickers


“Paolo and I want to thank you for your professionalism and steadfast dedication in helping us find our dream home. As first-time buyers, you made the process of buying easy and steered us in the right direction when we got off track. Not only did you always put our needs first and give us a boost of confidence when we most needed it, but you were extremely skilful and capable in the final negotiation process. We were very lucky to have been referred to you and will definitely be working with you again.”

Jean Miu & Paolo Matera


“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


As long-distance purchasers of a Ft. Lauderdale condo, we contacted the team of Ken Calhoun and Jeremy Willard with Castelli Realty to assist us. From the very beginning we found the team to be accommodating yet business-like, knowledgeable of the local market yet flexible in recommendations, resourceful in bringing the purchase to closure, yet precise in their execution. We cannot begin to thank the team of Ken and Jeremy for taking our very definitive specifications and locating a property that matched perfectly. They literally took our vision and made it appear! To this day, the team continues to assist us by recommending professional services and validating our satisfaction with their expertise. We can highly recommend Ken and Jeremy to anyone seeking their dream in the Ft. Lauderdale area.”

Tom and Mike


“Being from out of state, Ken spent 2 full days with me showing me properties. He stayed within the parameters and limited price range I set and now I own my retirement home on the Intracoastal. He found me exactly what I was looking for!! Ken handled everything successfully from the initial bid to the closing along with excellent referrals for insurance and other services. He kept me informed and calm during the whole process. Ken was a pleasure to work with and he’s a great resource from beginning to end. Thank you Ken!!”

Steve


“I retired after 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 to 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.”
