My busiest real estate - packed days, are the most exciting...when so much is happening there's not enough time for sleep. I've got the greatest job in the world because, as a Residential Specialist, our goals are the same: to make your dreams come true!
About Your New Real Estate Professional
Before I became a Residential Specialist, I served my country as a commissioned Military Intelligence Officer in the United States Army. After my discharge, my wife and I bought our first home. We had such a great experience, we knew we could do this ourselves. This is what began our real estate careers.
Since that time, I've received many Designations as a Residential Specialist: some of these include: Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), and Certified New Home Sales Professional (CSP).
Some of my Professional Achievements, and those I am most proud of in the Harrisburg PA market as a Residential Specialist include: Central Penn MultiList 2001 to 2011: Top Selling Agent in the 17112 zip code for both Listings Sold and Sales, Harrisburg Region Top Sales Agent of the Year 2008 and 2009 , and Subdivision Associate of the Year. I have received over 100 Service Excellence Awards for professionalism and commitment to clients through exceptional effort, and for maintaining the highest level of quality service.
However, my joy comes when I serve others. I am an avid hunter and have had much success over the years. At one point, I decided I wanted to give back . I became South Central PA Coordinator for: Farmers & Hunters Feeding the Hungry (http://FHFH.org), an organization that takes a renewable natural resource God gave us and converts it into food for the hungry. Once the meat is ready for distribution, I deliver it to local foodbanks in the Hershey Area. In addition, I volunteer at the Evangelical Free Church of Hershey Food Bank to finish the final distribution of the food to the people who most need it.
Personally, I've been happily married to my wife Leslye for over 24 years. We have two children, Vanessa and Kenny. Vanessa is married and lives in NYC. Kenny just got done with 4 years at The United States Military Academy at West Point, and is Active Duty Military. We love both the mountains and the beach, and can't wait to take off camping when we get a chance. We have a strong faith and enjoy our church life. Leslye and I have worked together and played together since we met. We are best friends.
Note from Ken: You may be relocating to or from the Harrisburg / Hershey area for many reasons... I will help you make that incoming transition simple and seamless. However, if you are searching for a real estate professional outside the state of Pennsylvania, please feel free to Contact Me or call me at 717.514.1793. I have associations with fabulous colleagues throughout the U.S. and I would be happy to help you get connected to an agent.
Ken Huebsch's assistance in presenting our offer, negotiating with the seller and preparing a custom (with contingencies) sales agreement were invaluable to us. Due to Ken's professionalism we were able to purchase a great building for our business at a good price. Thanks Ken, Steve and Michele Stackhouse, Hummelstown, PA
Ken Huebsch's key strength as a real estate broker is his significant professional experience/knowledge of the entire real estate process. He has a keen understanding of the south central Pennsylvania real estate market. He knows how to move real estate -- you get the sense when working with Ken that he is a very capable and skilled real estate broker. With Ken, you can expect an agent that is very strategic, patient, a fantastic listener, and most of all Ken does not panic! He listens to recommendations carefully. Ken understands what client service is. I strongly recommend working with Ken. He sold my home in a very difficult real estate market in the middle of winter. I very thankful for his efforts on my behalf. Rich Akers, Camp HiIl, PA
"Ken Huebsch was the Listing Agent for the house I purchased. Ken was ABSOLUTELY GREAT! He was extremely helpful during the whole process. Ken kept everything going smoothly for me, since I am a very busy person. He ordered all inspections and made sure everything went smoothly. Everything was great!" Stephanie Beattie, Grantville, PA
"Honesty, dependability, attention to detail. Everything Ken did was first rate." Patricia Weller, Enola, PA
"Ken is very personable and he doesn't rush through things; very helpful. Ken is easy to talk to and he answered my calls promptly. As a firts-time Home Buyer, I needed that." Kathryn Mack, Harrisburg PA
" I liked that Ken was willing to go the extra mile." Brandi Bottinger, Harrisburg PA
"Ken seemed very friendly at first; and as we got further into the process we knew he was a good person and the right fit. He explained the home-buying process and made himself available any time of day." Tanya Pertundo Harrisburg PA
"Ken was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. No Problems! Everything went smoothly!" Jennifer Hutchinson, Harrisburg PA
"Ken is just a wonderful person. He kept in constant contact with me and made me feel at ease about buying a home. He was this way of making people feel valued as a customer. EXCELLENT JOB!" Erika Willis, Harrisburg, PA
Ken went out of his way all the time for us. We were constantly impressed! David Jackson, Harrisburg PA
Because of Ken's knowledge and ability to explain 'things' in simple terms, we opted to have him represent us. At our ages, just keeping us informed through the process thru closing was a blessing. - Mr. and Mrs. John Wilk, Harrisburg PA
My wife & I have decided to leave Bradford Estates for a new housing opportunity and have sold our home. This process could not have been any easier or have gone any smoother than it did with the help of Ken. Our town home sold in just 11 days and we were just ecstatic!! It was a great experience! Mr & Mrs Jon Houser, Harrisburg PA
He is helpful, courteous, polite and more importantly honest, and has integrity. Ken is truly an asset to Prudential Homesale. - Mr. and Mrs. Gerard Cantara, Palmyra PA
My experience with Ken I can describe as one which from beginning to end left me with a feeling of immence gratitude. I was fortunate enough to have Ken sell my one home and find me another. I know his unrelenting persuit of excellence in his handling of both transactions saved me thousands. - Brian Gjurich, Hershey PA
Very personable and positive, maintained contact throughout this endeavor. Was always available, always willing to go out of his way for us, very patient. - Darryl P. Gore
I met Ken at Bradford Estates & asked him to sell my home. I selected my townhome layout. My house sold, but the offer went sour 4 days prior to closing. I thought I had to search for another townhome, but Ken humbly shared how he placed my townhome on hold. My home sold in 3 weeks & I have a beautiful home. Traci Carter, Harrisburg PA
It's not every day someone buys a house. It can be stressful, overwhelming, and confusing. However, it is also one of the most exciting times of two people's lives. as candidates interviewing for Residency at Penn State from the start Ken was very eager to provide us with anything we needed. He made sure we understood the paperwork and never hesitated to advise us candidly. Honesty, integrity, and professionalism all describe our working relationship with Ken. He made our house hunting experience fun and enjoyable. Craig Glaiberman, Palmyra PA
"Ken was recommended by a friend of ours who had known Ken for quite some time & everything he said about Ken was exactly right. A wonderful Christian man. The appraisal on the property we were selling was not done within the date it was stated on the contract and I called Ken and he took care of calling buyer's agent."
"Recommended by a friend. Ken was very professional, willing to talk to me at any hour of the day, treated me with the upmost respect and patience and very reliable and accountable. Definitely went the extra mile to answer all questions and make the process a smooth one."
"Ken's attention to detail and his ability to make you feel like his only client is remarkable. He has also continued to assist me with questions after closing. Only problems that existed were with my lender and Ken again went above and beyond to 'fix' the issues. Thank you Ken and Leslye!"
"I heard about Ken from a friend and decided to use him. Ken was wonderful to work with. He was always on point with what needed to be done. Everything that Ken did for me was helpful. He was great at explaining/answering any questions I had."
