Average 9 out of 10. Process was more difficult because I lived 2 1/2 hours away. Docu-sign was a little frustrating, but we got through it!

We worked with at least 6 other BBL agents prior to Ken. I would break those 6 agents into two groups; 1) Those that were more concerned about closing a deal than the clients needs, had weak follow through, clients were a burden, very self-serving, arrogant. Supposedly the best agents in BB. 2) And those who were concerned for the clients needs, had decent follow through but couldn’t close a deal. IMO, Ken is a standout in that he showed interest in his role in supporting the client, putting himself at the clients’ level, knows how to negotiate on behalf of the client, owns the transaction like it is his own, and can close the deal. Would not hesitate to use Ken & team for future transactions, he gets it. Would recommend Ken & team to family, friends, and coworkers.

Ken Simonds of Realty Executives in Big Bear was the Listing Agent of a property I wanted to purchase. I contacted him directly and he represented both seller and me (buyer). Ken is a very pleasant person to work with and has a good attitude. He was very fair and represented both parties with integrity and his expertise. He was very responsive to Phone Calls and Text Messages, and addressed all concerns with out delay. We opened escrow quickly and everything went smoothly through closing, all in less than 30 days. I have purchased 8 properties over the years and this was the smoothest transaction I have been involved in, thanks to Ken and his team. I highly recommend him, and i will definitely use his services again.

Ken is an outstanding agent with integrity and I highly recommend him without hesitation. Ken works diligently through completion of all transactions and keeps up to date about local property inventory. He is professional and knowledgeable beyond other agents with his extensive construction background. When I have purchased properties he worked within my budget to negotiate the best deal and when I have sold properties Ken procured great prices. He and his assistant Cathy keep me informed about the status of transactions, responding to all my questions promptly and I thank them for their dedication.

We worked with Ken Simonds to help us sell a family cabin in Big Bear Lake in 20011. We previously worked with 2 other local realtors to try selling the cabin with poor results. The previous agents were weak at communication and had no sale strategy. When we met with Ken and discussed our cabin and our goals, he described a clear plan of action, made suggestions for us and detailed communications he would have with us throughout the sales process. Ken was professional, communicative and energetic. We received regular updates on activity, potential buyers, etc. We always had the sense that Ken was actively marketing our property. We sold the cabin with Ken’s help (in a difficult selling market) and were very pleased with the price we received. Ken also diligently managed the closing process and kept us on track. We highly recommend Ken Simonds as a real estate agent and would not hesitate to work with him again.

I would recommend Ken to everyone. If you want an agent that stays on top of things, keeps you informed, and above all returns your phone calls, Ken is your guy. My family won’t use anybody else.

Ken, thank you so much for all you did to sell my home. It sold quickly and for more than I expected. Thank you for being so quick to respond to my texts, calls, and emails (SO important!) Mostly, thank you for your patience with my questions and always making sure I understood the answers! You even gave me advice when I asked you questions while buying a home done the hill! You go above and beyond!

I listed my property with Ken Simonds of Realty Executives as a short sale, and he was amazing. He is the most professional realtor I have ever worked with. I refer everyone that I can to Ken because he is honest, knowledgeable, and caring. Thank you so very much, Ken!

Your knowledge of the Big Bear real estate market is tremendous. You were able to hone in on exactly what we were looking for, in a great location, very quickly. You’re ability to preview the homes that appeared promising made the process very efficient. Even after we closed you have been there for us: recommending local vendors and contractors, pointing out local restaurants and shops, you even let in the delivery man when we couldn’t be there. You really went above and beyond the call of duty and we really appreciate it.

It is my pleasure in writing this letter of reference in regards to Ken Simonds. He represented me in the transaction in buying my home in Big Bear City. I have never had an agent go out of his way in making sure he found the right house and I could make the right decision upon closing. He has shown me that there are interested, and caring people who want the satisfaction and comfort knowing that I found and chose the right house for me. He also took care of a few loose ends to be sure I was happy at the end of escrow. I will surely refer him to anyone who might be in the market for buying or selling. A person who goes out of his way in not just one but many aspects deserves a great recommendation, and he has mine.
