"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."
"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!"
"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."
"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."
