Stop your search for “THE realtor”, because Ken and his team are simply the best out there. We had the good fortune of being introduced to Ken through our cousins who had used Ken (also by word of mouth!) to both sell and buy and had nothing but great things to say. My husband and I were understandably nervous and naive when we decided it was finally time to leave the Boston rental scene and buy our first home, so we took their recommendation and called Ken.
When I initially called Ken I expected to get a voicemail and then wait for a few days for a response. Instead, Ken answered his phone and when I introduced myself and why I was calling he immediately sounded enthused and genuinely interested in me, my husband, and our needs. He had a 15 minute conversation with me right then and there to find out more about us! Immediately after that first conversation he scheduled an in person meeting so we could meet face to face. This is what you get with Ken – someone who genuinely cares about you, your needs, your family, and your true happiness.
Being first time home buyers we had a LOT to learn throughout every stage of the process. Throughout the whole process he was supportive, understanding, encouraging and always happy to take on any and all questions or issues we had (though there were few because Ken was 100% on top of everything!). Ken is a true “people person” – and takes the time to get to know his clients and their needs so well that he is often one or two steps ahead of you during the process. There were times when Ken would text or call to check in with us about something and it would be a Saturday afternoon and he would be in Maine with his family – and we would joke with him and say “what are you doing texting your clients right now? Aren’t you up on the Maine coast with your family?!”We always had a good laugh about it- but the point is that that is who Ken is. He doesn’t stop thinking about his clients at 5pm on Friday. He doesn’t even stop thinking about his clients when he is on vacation. He is always thinking about you, always checking in, always working his hardest for no matter what he is doing.
Two other points worth noting:
Ken has an amazing team working with him, and I can honestly say that the times when I was in communication with other people on the team- particularly Alex – I felt like I was in just as good of hands as with Ken. It is clear he fosters an incredible work ethic within the team he has formed.
Ken is a grounded, down to earth person who’s compassion extends beyond his clients to the environment and activism. We have been fortunate enough to go to a few events he has thrown in which his firm is actively giving and raising funds for climate action, the environment, etc. It is so refreshing to work with a professional who is so clearly an action minded individual and not in it all for the money. This is Ken. Ken just gets it – and cares.
So yeah. Do yourself a favor and hire Ken Sazama. You will not only have found the best realtor in the biz, but you will find that your real estate needs are being taken care of by someone who feels more like an old friend than a businessman. We love you Ken!!!
