For Sale by Owner? or Sell my House MR. Realtor....

For Sale by Owner? or Sell my House MR. Realtor.... Did you know that the FOUNDER of ForSalebyOwner actually Hired a Realtor to sell his home?  This is what was reported fromRealtor the Wall Street Journal, as it is reported  Colby Sambrotto (founder and former CEO) spent six month trying to sell his condo in New York, and was not able to sell the home.  Colby hired a Realtor to list the home and then paid the Realtor 6%commission to get the job done.  His personal Experience with ForSalebyOwner did not help him in moving his home.  
My Question to you: is If the founder and creator of the Biggest For sale by Owner assistance (Limited Listing Services) was not able to market the property the right way and get the home sold, and he was in business for 6 years and its was his JOB! So my question to you is What could you do Differently?

Be DifferentI know that is a BOLD Question for you RIGHT?......
But Seriously think about this for a minute here is a professional agent, that started a company to help people sell their homes, and he could not sell his house......  Between the ForSalebyOwner program and Zestimates, they are both telling people to talk with a licensed real estate agent.......Let me be that source if you are looking to sell your home.  You can email me or call me 360.609.0226

Let me tell you my 16 Point Marketing Plan and my Customer Service Guarantee.  I just want to help you make the right choice for you and your family, with short sales the way they are, and people getting Notice of Defaults and not knowing what to do.  I want to be your source to help you!

What Our Clients Have to Say About Us:

I have known Ken for several years and he is an outstanding professional
real estate agent. I have referred clients to Ken and will continue to do

Owner , Puroclean

Ken is one of those industry leaders that you just don't forget. When you
hire him you actually hire his entire team, how great is that! I chose Ken
over many other realtors that I know to help my wife and I choose our first
investment property. He not only excelled in finding properties that met our
criteria, but also found some creative "outside the box" ideas that opened
our eyes to other options. He and his team were available to us and
patiently answered the thousand questions we had. And his hearty laugh is
testament to how much fun he makes the experience. In the process Ken has
become someone I respect and count as a dear friend. I whole-heartedly
recommend Ken for any of your real estate investment needs.
Top qualities: Personable, Expert, and Creative


Darci Lee

I met Ken through a networking group and also was able to work directly
with him during my short stint as a Realtor. From the perspective of another
Realtor, I am entirely impressed with the time and effort Ken put into each
sale. Whether helping a buyer find the right property or guiding a seller
through the process, Ken is a true professional. Besides his dedication,
what sets Ken apart from others is his vast experience with investors and
investment properties. By knowing what to look for, he can determine what is
a good investment and which ones are not. In this market especially I would
trust Ken to help me determine the best value and walk me through the

Owner, Natural Order LLC


Cliff Temple

I worked with Ken on a real estate development project when he was with a
previous company. Ken is very organized, a great negotiator and salesman.
Ken also brings a very positive attitude to everything he is involved in.
Ken is a delight to work with.

Thank you for everything you did for us. You helped us find the perfect

Our home buying experience was CRRRRAZY ! After waiting five months on a
short sale, we lost it two days before closing, lost a foreclosure, lost a
for sale by owner-the dude was too drunk to sign paperwork!! lost a home to
a conventional loan- even though our offer was by far the highest. ..Ummm
there was more...none of which was our fault. Nonetheless we were hit with
many challenges.

You represented us as a good agent should. Above all you listened to our
wants, needs and budget, you were always personable and professional. Thank
you so much for always being available. Sometimes we called 5 or 7x in a
day (not to mention the emails) and you were prompt with a response. When
we found a house we wanted to look at, we meant right now not 30 min from
now. You did good! We have to give you credit for patience. We had high
demands and your attention to detail exceeded our expectations. We would
highly recommend you to anyone looking for any buying or selling a home.

I want to sincerely thank you for ALL that you are doing for me in regards
to my parent's house. I really do appreciate your help! You were an answer
to prayer at a very "low" time in my life. And I am "singing your praises"
to everyone I meet. I think I may have a neighbor that will want to talk to
you after the Holidays - he is thinking about putting his house up for sale.

I am SO grateful to you for the things you are doing on Craigslist. I check
it every once in a while & see how you keep it updated at all times. I viewed
the one on Sunday, I believe it was, that had the heading LOCATION,
LOCATION, LOCATION - how clever!

I have shown the Visual Tour to some people and friends to show them how
"great" you are.
