2018 Client Testimonials

"As an out-of-towner, we were extremely pleased with the excellent service Ken provided. He's extremely professional and high knowledgeable of the real estate business. Ken answered ALL of our questions and was patient with us. We couldn't asked for a better realtor." Danny Plainfield


"My wife and I had met Ken about 5 years ago when we were looking to purchase a home in the Plainfield area. Ken was very knowledgeable with the area and showed us many homes that met our criteria. This was very helpful as we did not have much time to allocate to this process. When the time came to sell this home the choice was clear on whom to choose for our selling agent, it was Ken Thomson. Ken did an amazing job with our listing. His knowledge on staging, lighting and pictures were top notch! We went under contract in one weekend. Buying and selling real estate can be one of the most stressful times of one's life. Finding a knowledgeable, courteous, respectful and prompt agent is key to making this process as smooth and stress free as possible. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!" Bob Plainfield


"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 Channahon


 "I have worked with Ken on multiple occasions, both buying and selling. And I will continue to work with him and recommend him to friends and family. Ken is professional and experienced. He adds value to the time spent house hunting by being extremely knowledgeable on the area. I really appreciate the amount of time he spends pulling comparisons and answering questions. 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 Romeoville


"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 that much for rentals, so some agents do not want to dedicate much time for rentals. I almost had 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 matter always." Rachit Oswego

2015 Client Testimonials

"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

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." Robert

"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 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 descaribed 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 reccommend his services to anyone who wishes to sell their home." Hoby

"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!!!" George
