Client Testimonials
Ken did a great job in helping me find my first home. He kept me calm and optimistic when it seemed that I would never find a home since everything was going for all cash and over asking! I also truly appreciated his negotiating style and skills. We bought a two family and Ken helped us lease the rental unit. When the current tenants leave I will definitely engage Ken again to help me rent the place! I would recommend Ken to friends and family without hesitation.

Kenneth has been very helpful in finding a rental for me, my girlfriend and our 10 month old baby boy. Heavy snow couldn\'t stop him from spending a full Sunday morning showing me apartments in Park Slope. He found us a great place; brownstone, renovated and (as a big bonus) a garden. Kenneth was very patient in the application process. And very helpful after we got the apartment. A friendly guy with in depth knowledge of Brooklyn. I can strongly recommend him.

Ken from Ideal did a fantastic job helping us with the purchase of our fist home. Without his superior negotiating skills we would not have been able to purchase this spectacular condo in Carroll Gardens. Our mortgage broker has introduced us to Ken, and we will most certainly use him in the future, and have already recommended him to two of our friends. Thanks, Ken!

Ken from Ideal Properties was a blessing for us. My boyfriend and I were planning to buy a condo in Park Slope, and Ken got us the best in the city where deals seem impossible to find lately. We have seen two dozen condos before a friend of ours introduced us to Ken. Two were relatively nice, but what Ken showed us in a few weeks after our first contact was nothing short of… one apartment better than the next! Buying in Brooklyn was an incredible experience for us, and we are convinced that without Ken it would have been much more nerve-wrecking. Ken made everything seem easy and effortless. His demeanor was amazing, yet his negotiation skills superior to the seller’s broker. Thanks so much for helping us find a great first home, Ken! We really owe you one, especially for the $180K you saved us in the process. ☺
Juanita & Nick, 07/12/2013
I've had a fantastic experience with Ken Simmons. I was under a lot of stress over the past year both with finding a new studio apartment ASAP last Fall because of personal circumstances and then again this Spring for a sudden relocation across the country. Ken kept his cool under my stress, was patient and understanding of my needs. He reassured me that I would find a new tenant by my deadline and because I had worked with him before I was able to trust and rely on him. Everything worked out as planned. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a broker that's on your side during the whole stressful New York apartment searching process.
