My wife and I met Ken in his office one day while shopping. We began to chat and found out we had many things in common. Ken took the time to listen to our wants and needs and set up introductions to new construction options versus existing listings to confirm our preferences. Ken had excellent taste for design, décor, and function. After returning to our home in Michigan, Ken continued to keep us informed with new listings which would match our wants and needs. He was always available via phone for any questions about the properties we previewed. One day we received a listing that we believed was the one for us in Oro Valley. Ken immediately set up a video walk through tour of the home via FaceTime. We relied on Ken's honest feedback on the house and his impression of its quality, functionality, and the HOA community. Based on viewing the house and Ken's expert feedback, we made an offer on the house. People might think we were crazy to buy a house we never visited, but we put faith and trust in our working relationship in Ken and found out our trust was spot on when the deal was done, and we first visited our new home. Ken's expert and honest opinion of the property was more than accurate. Once the sale was finalized Ken continued to be of great service. When a summer storm brought down a tree limb onto the sidewalk, the HOA sent an email to fix the problem immediately which was difficult to do from Michigan, so I called Ken for help. Within 2 hours he went over with a saw, took care of the of the problem, then provided a local reference for tree service for our future needs. Additionally, Ken has been a reliable source to reference local gardeners and businesses. His professional connections provide a great help to newcomers like us, unfamiliar with Tucson's housing environment. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone seeking a person who has great listening skills, communication skills, and a heart of serving. We rate Ken 10 out of 10.by carolbob55

"It is very difficult to put into words how positive our experience was working with Ken Nelson. Purchasing a home is a difficult process especially if you are living in another state. Ken was always available when we came into town on the weekends. His knowledge about the area and market conditions was very valuable when we finally made an offer. He held our hands through the closing. His services did not stop once we purchased the home. He also help us on getting painters and made sure the home was ready when we arrived. Once we arrived in AZ he continues to check in to make sure that we did not need any assistance. Ken Nelson provided a professional quality service that was above and beyond. We would highly recommend Ken to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. We were so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Ken."by amy tay10
With a recent move to Tucson, there were a lot of unknowns about the area. I somehow managed to get linked to Ken, and I am extremely thankful for this. Ken went above and beyond to assist with finding a home that fit my random requirements. I was out of town for work during this time which left my husband to be the only one going to see the homes. Ken lined up homes and set out with my husband for the day going to all the homes that fit our requests. The home we ended up purchasing came back on the market while a different offer was out. Ken sent over the information/pictures for the home and because Ken was so easy to make contact with, we jumped on the home with an offer in a matter of hours. Because of this, I feel that our offer was the chosen one and I am extremely thankful for all the work that Ken put into this. Ken was the ONLY realtor to respond back to me after several attempts at getting more information on homes in the area. I highly recommend!by Amberae Blau
Ken is the best! We have lived in the same house in Chicago for the last 20 years, so when we started looking for a new place in Tucson, it was a bit overwhelming. Ken was extremely patient and helped guide us and introduced us to this beautiful city. Since we lived out of town, Ken was nice enough to drive to all the houses that we were considering and gave us virtual tours. He was honest and noticed problems that we would have overlooked. It felt like Ken was buying a house for himself. When we finally closed on our dream home, Ken was kind enough to hold the keys for us until we drove down to Tucson. When we arrived, there was no electricity in the house, but Ken brought his coolers full of food and drinks to make our transition so smooth. It was so thoughtful. Ken was personable and made the whole process of purchasing a home a wonderful experience. Outstanding job! Thank you, Ken!by adammadej
As seniors we contacted Ken to find a house for us in Marana Az. He sent us photos and infor on the houses that were available. When we found just the right one....he did the walk thru with us via video. going room to room and answering our questions...even to the size of the outside shed. When we got to Marana, he took us thru for the final walk thru and the house is just what we were wanting. All paperwork was handled in a very nice and professional way. Our escrow even closed a day earlier than original stated. Ken was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone searching for a house in the area. Our thanks to Ken for making it a wonderful experience.by komagal7

Ken Nelson is the best- professional, down to earth and cares. He is the only person I trust when it comes selling and buying homes. Ken goes above and beyond, I can’t sum up all the appreciation I have for him in one summary - he’s the best.by Tina Fiori
Ken was great and very patient with our home search. He was always accessible and answered our questions in detail and very clear manner. It took us 4 or 5 months - we were very specific on what we wanted on our home and our budget. But eventually, we found our perfect home and he was gracious all the time. He never pushed us for a quick deal and was very honest on his opinions too. I highly recommend him.by Priscila Martins
Ken went above and beyond all expectations. He was fun to work with, quick to answer all questions, early for every appointment and helped us find a great house.

It was truly a pleasure to work with Ken and if I am in the market to buy a home in the future, I'll be calling Ken!!by Lisa Williams
Ken was absolutely great to work with. Professional, knowledgeable, attentive, and kind. Could not have asked for a better transaction. Coming from out of state and not knowing the area was a little daunting to say the least. Ken took hold and lessened our worries and helped to guide us in the right direction for our lifestyle.by Lea Moody
Ken is a wonderful real estate professional. there is not one thing that i would change in the way he takes care of client.

Fabulous!! Ken Nelson was absolutely fabulous. He was helpful in all aspects: searching and visiting houses, making appropriate offers, negotiations, and closing. He knows his business and is a very nice guy. He is always willing to listen, ready to answer questions, and explain the procedures, both taking care of the big picture as well as all details. He went above and beyond.by Ton Boerkoel
Amazing experience - Buying and Selling! Ken helped me buy my house in early 2020 and due to a work relocation, sell my house just 2 years after the purchase. I was a first-time homebuyer, now I was a first-time home seller. Ken was extremely professional during the entire process - when my husband and I first contacted him we were not even sure if/when we would move, but he came to our house and explained to us how the market was looking and how we should expect the process to be. We ended up listing weeks before planned, and he prepared everything in literally hours with very short notice. From calling him to prepare the house, to photo, to listing and open house (and multiple offers) it was all a time span of 48 hours. It was very impressive. He helped us choose the best buyers for our house and the process really was so smooth. He was always available anytime I had questions and was even able to help me screen realtors for my purchase in a new city. He really went above and beyond and I highly recommend Ken. Since I have used his services for both buying and selling, I can say that he excels in both ways and is very knowledgeable in the whole real estate transaction process.by Priscila Marsili Martins
We could not have asked for better representation and service when Jerry Jaffray represented us on a home purchase in Sahuarita, Arizona.

One of his best attributes is listening to his clients needs. He never wasted our time showing us homes that did not fit our needs.by 12/31/2020 - ronald sims

Jerry quite simply gets the job done! We have worked with him as a buyer, as well as a seller and he smoothed out any speed bumps which we experienced and got our deals closed.

Is there a 6th star? Jerry has been exceptional at every turn! He went over and above in all aspects. Jerry made sure to explain things thoroughly, like how the bidding might go. As a first-time buyer I’ve been nothing but nerves and anxiety and Jerry was fantastic at calming me down and assuring me everything was going to work out great. I can not recommend Jerry highly enough. I will be passing his name and number to ANYONE that I know is looking for a realtor. After this experience I count Jerry as a personal friend.by 01/04/2019 - Michael Halderman Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Tucson, AZ.
It took 1.5 years of tireless work but Jerry did not rest until he got me into the home that he know that I truly wanted. You name the issue, no matter how weird, and it came up!

In the end his resourcefulness and creative solution put me into the home I wanted and I couldn't be happier.by 12/16/2018 - nessafett Bought a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2018 in Tucson, AZ.
Jerry was absolutely great! The greatest ever! He is an excellent listener and took everything that I said or commented on into account when he chose listings for me to consider.

erry was a very persistent and helpful agent. This being my first house, he was extremely patient and doing a lot of research on his own time to help us find a home that accommodated us. We looked at 40 plus houses in person and I never get pressured during the process once. When we went into homes, he would point out things what we’re both good and bad from his personal experience and made it very easy to make a decision. I would recommend Jerry to be a buying agent for anyone at anytime.by 08/16/2018 - Jonathon Skaggs Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Tucson, AZ.
