Agent Ratings for Ken Schaeffer
Home buyer in SYLMAR
Ken is the BEST! My wife and I were looking to upsize and I am glad we chose Ken to help us. We met with Ken a year before we were ready to start looking for our new home. We interviewed many realtors and Ken struck me as an honest and sincere person. He patiently waited until we were ready to begin our home buying journey. Ken's strong point are his communication skills, he was always available via phone, text or email for any questions, concerns or ideas that either my wife or I had. He always kept us in the loop during the whole process and I never felt like my wife and I were alone or apart from what was going on. Ken was always available to show us houses and we saw many, many ... many houses (my wife loved them all!). When we found the house we both loved, then Ken really went to work. We spoke almost on a daily basis while Ken negotiated the price and he fought to get the best price we could considering the condition of the house (a REAL fixer-upper). Ken also cooridinated well with the lender, the inspectors and the escrow company, making sure all paperwork was done in a timely manner, letting me know what to expect and from whom. At the end, thanks to Ken's efforts, we were able to close in one day! If you are looking for someone who is attentive to your needs, is always available for you and will really try to help you find that perfect house of your dreams, then I recommend Ken Schaeffer.

Condo buyer in sylmar
Kenís service is outstanding! I enjoyed working with him. He made my home buying experience which could have been a very daunting experience for me, to a very pleasant one. His quick action and responsiveness and negotiating skills got me into my new house within 30 days from finding a property to closing escrow! He used his communication skills, knowledge and experience to ensure my escrow closed as scheduled. He also prepared me for what to expect as a new home buyer which included escrow and lending. When escrow was close to closing Ken was right there coaching me and advising me of the steps I needed to take before taking possession of my home. Ken is amazing! He passionate about his work, results driven, and is very knowledgeable about the industry. Ken rocks!!!!!!!
Previous review from Agnes M.
Ken is AWESOME! He is very knowledgeable about the industry, a highly skilled professional whose primary focus is achieving favorable results for his clients. He is tenacious, responsive and result driven. He made my home buying experience very pleasant and painless. I contacted Ken one week ago when I was looking purchase a house in the Sylmar area. I was immediately impressed with his responsiveness when he immediately called me back as well as with his vast knowledge of the industry by explaining the home buying process for me in details. He also gave me a brief history of Sylmar and the surrounding cities. After telling him about the type of property I was looking for, he registered my name on his MLS system after which I began receiving listings for homes for sale. A few days later, I saw a house on the listing that I was interested in that had just come on the market for sale. I notified Ken. He immediately called me back, told me the house had just come on the market and is still available. He scheduled an appointment for us to go look at it. We went on Sunday. I fell in love with it. I expressed to him my desire to purchase the property. He immediately contacts the selling agent to advise her of our interest to purchase the property after which he immediately got out our offer to her after returning to his office. This was a very hot property. The next day, which was Monday, the realtor advised him that there were many offers for the house. However, because of Kenís quick actions, his tenacity, and excellent coordination and communications skills, the house was awarded to us on Tuesday. We opened escrowed on Wednesday! I am scheduled to move into my new home in thirty days! Thank you Ken! In todayís market whereby inventory is low and interest rates are low, and more buyers competing for the same property, in my opinion, it is in the buyerís best interest to partner with a professional who will go above and beyond their job responsible to work hard for buyer to give them a winning chance. Call Ken. He will get the job done.

Previous review from LiroN C.
Ken contacted me after few minuets after i submitted a request to see some properties, we met the day after and he showed me some places, he knew everything from a to z about each and every properly and about the city and neighborhood.
He is always available and very fast and experienced. The only thing is you would buy the first ten house he's showing and offer not lower than his suggested price, also get another pre-approval from his favorite loan agent, otherwise his language changes completely and he starts to make some problems. What he did to me, he provided an offer for me lower than the price I wanted and after too many corrections from me and not getting respond from him the deadline passed. He also got angry about me not returning his call and he disconnected me from Ziprealty.
Response from Ken
: We currently have a short sale in process. In addition, I wrote another offer for him after the one he mentioned above and then HE asked me to make the offer price higher. I did as he asked, but then he took the offer and submitted it to the listing agent directly, bypassing me. I have many years experience in sales and loans and this client wouldn't listen to, consider, nor take my advice. I felt his loan representative wasn't as engaged as he could or needed to be, thus I requested he also get preapproved through a lender I know will get the job done, in case his lender didn't pull through. The client called me and after he used abusive language, I disconnected him from the website. I always work hard for my clients and my other testimonials reflect my integrity and style.

Condo buyer in tarzana
Ken was an outstanding realtor, he knew what I was looking for, he took the time to know me and was able to put himself in my shoes to see if there were certain places where I would live at. I remember him driving to our appointment and him calling me before I even got there to tell me that the area was not something I would like, again remembering what I liked was very important and made my search much easier. He was always extremely punctual, there was never a moment in time when I had to wait for him. He was always well prepared, I've dealt with realtors in the past where they don't have navigation/gps in their car and we were driving around all over the place. But Ken was very efficient at looking at as many places as we could in a short amount of time. He was extremely patient and helpful! Again, it was a pleasure working with this realtor. Highly recommend working with this realtor if you want to find the house of your dreams.
