Ken Droog and Associates: Parksville and Qualicum Real Estate Specialists

We listed our commercial property with Ken Droog and Associates. We did have it listed before without successful results and were referred to Ken and his team. We were very impressed with the depth of their marketing and the number of showings we did have under his care. Anyone can list a property but Ken and his team went above and beyond making sure they had the appropriate knowledge of the property, they presented our property very well in person and online. We ended up with multiple offers and Ken’s skillful negotiation helped us realize top dollar and a smooth transaction, he kept us informed along the way and was very professional in the whole process. We would certainly recommend Ken and his team.

First off, thank you Ken for the patience you have shown us these past 5 years or so. As recent transplants from Alberta it took us this long to convince ourselves that this is where we wanted to retire, and Ken was most helpful in that decision.  Even from Calgary he was always there for us, sending us listings, calling to see how we were doing, and also assisting us with any real estate, or fishing, questions that might need answering.  He has been one of the best realtors we have ever dealt with, and there have been a few, but now we are also proud to call him a good friend.  Ken and his staff were most accommodating and his expertise was second to none. Having been settled in for almost 2 months now, loving our new home and having great neighbors, we know, with the help of Ken, we did the right thing, should have done it sooner.

A special thank you also goes out to Isabel, Ken’s right-hand lady, also very helpful. On another note, keep up the good work Ken with “Kiting for Kids”.

We listed our home in Qualicum Beach with Ken Droog of Remax First Realty, Parksville, BC. Our home sold in a short period of time and we received a sale price of 99% of our asking price. We found that Ken acted very professionally and found him to be an excellent negotiator. Ken was the only realtor that suggested we sell list our home at a price higher than other Realtor’s had suggested. We feel that Ken was working for our interests and not just out to get a quick commission.

Ken is a very active person who is involved in various fund raising activates to help support the Children’s Miracle Network and the BC Children’s Hospital.

We would highly recommend Ken to anyone who wants straight forward realtor who gets the job done.

I had a choice to make in selling my house in a buyers market and knew how important it was to list it with realtors that were team players in this market. Not only with other individual realtors but also with other realty offices in order to get the maximum exposure in today’s competitive market.

My choice in Ken and his assistant Isabelle paid off and did not only resulted in selling my house, it reminded me that there are still people in business that care.

Selling or buying a house remains a memorable life event and a realtor that helps you benefit financially and emotionally is something you can control by making the right choice.

For me that choice was Ken and Isabelle Droog and as some life choices don’t work out, choosing them as my realtors sure worked for me and better then I even imagined.

I simply and honestly, highly recommend them if you need to sell or buy real estate and hope your experience will be as rewarding as mine.

Thanks again so much guys.

Ken did a remarkable job in selling our house in a difficult market. His initial presentation was very professional and his soundly based recommendations inspired confidence. He suggested that it would probably take about 60 days to sell and from signing the listing agreement to the buyers removing their subjects was exactly 60 days to the day.

We have received several favorable comments on the way Ken displayed our home on his website and on the MLS listing as a result of his excellent photographs.

Although the market was slow his marketing efforts resulted in a steady flow of viewings from his office and other realtors. We had a minimum of 2 showings a week and often more. After every showing we were provided with meaningful feedback and a good indication as to the level of interest expressed by the potential buyers. By comparison we heard from a number of other people that they had few to no showings of their listings and invariably had to instigate the follow up with their listing agent.

When Ken was away for a brief period, Isabelle his wife and associate continued his high standard of service and kept us informed of all developments.

Overall we were very pleased with Ken’s standard of excellence and have no hesitation in recommending his services.
