Kim Ken photo

Kim Carlson and Ken Follis have been extremely successful agents on their own for over two decades and decided to join forces in 2013. In their first year as a team, Kim and Ken came out on top – closing the highest number of transactions at their previous brokerage. They not only specialize in residential sales but also in land, commercial and 1031 exchange transactions.

Both Kim and Ken share similar goals and visions, along with common faith and family values. Their similarities make them a great team but it is their differences that make them a force to be reckoned with.

Selling your home is more than finding a buyer and closing a sale. It’s a complex transaction involving your single most valuable asset.

You need an expert like Kim Carlson and Ken Follis who know how to protect you and represent your best interests: someone skilled at handling delicate negotiations on your behalf, experienced in avoiding legal pitfalls that could cost you money; accomplished at orchestrating sophisticated marketing strategies that can make the difference between a so-so outcome and a very rewarding one.

Kim and Ken’s skills in these areas are what defines them. Realty One Group backs Kim and Ken’s exceptional skills with a range of powerful connections, resources and expertise.

Why do Kim and Ken offer all this? It’s simple. They are focused on more than selling houses. Their goal is to represent you — for life.

Kim and Ken as a team are extremely well versed in every aspect of real estate. This includes their innovative approach to marketing, thorough analysis of investment opportunities, and mostly focusing on their clients` needs by listening to them.

When asked what makes their team so successful, Kim and Ken gave all the credit to their clients saying, “We value our clients` needs and strive to provide World Class Service and personalized detail to every single transaction. We realize our success is because of our valued customers.”

The Experience You Need… with the Service and Results You Deserve!
