TESTIMONIALS

“My husband and I just sold our Mission Viejo home with Ken and had a great experience.  He helped us buy our next home at the Great Park in Irvine and we were looking for a deal.  He was able to get us our dream home within our criteria for a great price.  Literally the day after we entered escrow the builder was offering our floorplan for anywhere between $150k to $200k more.  We just closed on our home and have a ton of equity already.  Thank you.”

“We have sold many homes in our lifetime and we have never met a realtor as dedicated and motivated as Ken. He brought us multiple offers and sold our home above the list price. He listed our home aggressively but within reason, and marketed our home beautifully. We were very impressed by the way he showed our home to each and every buyer. He showed the home like it was the first time he was presenting the home each time. He gives 100% and you can see his passion shine through. There was a lot of conversation about how to navigate the challenging marketplace around COVID. Our experience with Ken personally was seamless but like many transactions the unexpected occurred. In our case, we were faced with a situation with the buyer that would have ended our escrow. I’m certain that if we had any other realtor, we would have cancelled the escrow without question to avoid headaches and frustrations. But that’s not what happened… We have to give credit to Ken’s business partner, Ashley. She helped us think outside the box and presented us an angle that we would have never thought about. And it made sense. She helped us put together a letter on all the reasons why we were not going to cancel and through that journey we discovered truths that allowed the buyer an opportunity to perform and act in good faith. Her plan was so successful, we closed escrow a week later with no worries. I think it’s important to consider the unexpected when hiring a realtor and ask yourself if you know how the person you’ve hired has navigated difficult and unexpected situations. This experience taught us that while risk exists, an exceptional realtor will get you to the finish line without cancellations…. and The Harter Group is that exceptional! We have them to thank for helping us! We will definitely be referring them to all our family and friends.”

“Our home was on the market with two other realtors for over a year prior to COVID. Both failed to sell our home. And neither of them were able to attract many buyers to schedule showings of our home. We turned to Ken next. His attention to detail and marketing program made our dated listing refreshed and attractive. COVID hit, but despite that we had so many showings. Ken brought us multiple offers and his team had our best interest at heart throughout the entire process. They were very accommodating and patient with us too. We used The Harter Group to buy our next home. The process was smooth and we got a great deal. We highly recommend The Harter Group.”

“We recently worked with Ken and Ashley at The Harter Group to sell our home in Baker Ranch. We were out of the country due to a family emergency and Ken stepped up and helped in so many ways. We left in such a hurry that we literally had dishes still in the sink and Ken and Ashley helped make what seemed impossible, possible; From preparing the home for market to meeting vendors for appointments, and ongoing upkeep. Their extensive and professional marketing campaign got our home noticed and viewed many times, even during a world wide pandemic. We received multiple competitive offers, ultimately selling our home for $40K above appraised value. Selling a home is a journey with ups and downs and Ken and Ashley stayed calm, patient and professional through out the entire process. They gave great advice and guidance to us and we appreciated that when needed, Ken was willing and able to engage in the tough conversations and negotiations in a calm and professional way. We highly recommend the Harter Group.”

“I have two homes and have been following real estate trends in South Orange County for less than ten years but more than five. I was on a FB thread at the start of COVID about the real estate market and Ashley was the only one who said to hang on and ride the wave and most likely markets are going to continue to rise. From a macro economic perspective this made sense to me since inflation drives home value as well as interest rates but I thought the pandemic would be the straw that broke the camels back. Ashley could have said, “Oh yes you are right Nick, let’s sell everything and figure out the next move” but she didn’t and she was right and not only right but very very right. Real estate agents are compensated by transacting. She and Ken could have transacted in my moment of anxiety but they didn’t and said stay the course. Talk to Ashley and Ken Harter because they are great, real, know their stuff and very honest.”

“The Harter Group sincerely puts customers first and offers an extremely personalized level of customer service. They spend the time to listen and truly understand your needs. Ken is an incredible person and is dedicated! This is more than a real estate transaction to him. He is hands on and involved in every aspect of selling a home. Our home was just as much his home as he put in the time to improve our landscaping, patch and paint our walls and do whatever was necessary to get the home ready to put on the market. I would recommend this group to anyone out there because they deliver on their promises and exceed expectations all along the way.”

“Ken Harter was among several realtors we interviewed. We were looking for an agent with skill and someone we could trust. We were told by all the other agents we would be lucky to sell our home for $760k because there weren’t enough comps in our neighborhood to support what we wanted. Then we reached out to Ken, and the unbelievable happened. He took the listing with a few conditions – that we let him take the lead and stick to his magical plan. We did just that, and he sold our home for $800,000 in less than a month. If anyone is looking for a talented and trustworthy realtor, call Ken, and listen to his advice because it will more than pay off.”

Michelle Hardin

“We hired not one, but two area “specialists” and they both failed to meet our expectations. We really needed to sell our home, but not at the expense of lowering the price until we received an offer. Ken was a pleasure to be around, knowledgeable, and very focused on learning the selling points of our home and neighborhood as well as the weaknesses. He made excellent suggestions to overcome any weaknesses throughout our home and made the home very appealing to buyers. He wasn’t about pushing the number of homes he’s sold throughout his career to get the listing. Rather, he showed us that every listing he’s ever taken has sold for full asking or above. It was his transparency that ultimately made us choose to work with him. I only wish we would have hired Ken to begin with. He brought us an offer over asking and sold our home in less than a month. Thank you Ken!”

Maria Adelmann

“We interviewed numerous agents, and Ken was by far the most knowledgeable of the marketplace, skilled and experienced, all while being relatable. We were interested in his performance vs. other realtors in the area who all claimed to get their client top dollar. But it was Ken’s marketing plan that was so effective, we knew that we would not only find the right buyer, but that Ken would negotiate the best offer. He got us an above asking offer in 6 days. Throughout the entire process, Ken’s communication was always quick to respond to any and all questions and concerns that we had. He made us feel like we were his top priority and only client. Ken Harter is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with, period. Many agents will claim to help you navigate through the complexities of selling and buying a house, but few actually deliver on all of their claims. Ken not only exceeded our expectations, he made our entire family a priority. I will always recommend Ken.”

Sergei Putvinski

“Ken sold our home in a week under very unusual circumstances. There were no comparables in our neighborhood. His team did a great job of suggesting a list price. We decided to get an appraiser’s opinion as well, and Ken was SPOT ON! I will recommend him to everyone because not only is he dedicated to his clients and work, he will get you the best price for your real estate. It’s not every day you find a real estate professional as good as The Harter Group.”
