I was very pleased with working with Ken.

He is a great guy and easy to get along with. Most important thing is that he helped take care of me with everything in the transaction and is very responsive. He got me more than what I expected no doubt.

William Badal

This man, If I could give him 10 stars or more I would.

He was initially helping us find a house and we decided we’d like some land. I found the land and asked him if he could still be my agent and of course he could and he made sure to make contracts and read through everything to protect us from anything and everything. & also gave us some encouragement and said if he was my father he would be so proud, and he’s a Christian and shared it loud a proud so in my book this man is 100% the real deal and I would trust him with ANYTHING. You’re wasting your time if you’re not working with Steve, the most qualified honest and qualified businessman I’ve ever met.

Tim found us a great house in a great neighbor hood and did a wounderful job of handling all of the paperwork for the sale.

Tim then handled the sale of our old house. Tim told us what parts of the house needed to be cleaned up and how to present the house. Tim put the house on the market and a buyer contacted him within 3-days and the house was sold in 7-days with Tim taking the paperwork for the old house. We are very pleased!!

Ken was great!

He made the process of selling and buying our new home such a breeze. He was very honest with us on what to do with our old home to get it ready to sell. We had a few hiccups from potential buyers but it wasn't anything we did wrong. Ken made sure we had all the information we needed to move forward once we had a buyer on the old house. It was very quick closing date but he made sure we had all paperwork in a timely manner. It is because of Ken that our house sold so quickly(20 day) 1 of those weeks was Christmas. He also made sure in our new house that it was going to be good to go for us. He listened to what we wanted and made sure we could make it happen Thank you so much Ken. You are truly an amazing realtor. I'd recommend him for any house selling and/or buying needs.

Jacqueline Martin

Suzi did a great job for us.

We had several properties to locate for purchase on a 1031 exchange with a very small window of time. She helped us locate those properties, secured contracts, set up inspections, walk throughs and was intermediary with owners for questions and answers to our satisfaction. You couldn’t ask for any realtor to be more accessible and in our opinion an excellent representative for our wants and needs. Thank You Suzi for your 100% commitment to our project.

Larry Moore (Real Estate Investor)

Suzi did awesome, the process went very smooth from start to finish.

She negotiated with the seller and got me a considerable discount on the home. I will definitely use Suzi in the future

Keri Davis (Social Services Coordinator)

Realtor Tim Garrett explained every detail of selling my house along the way.

Emails and texts were promptly answered. He got me a great price by making recommendations on repair and cosmetic issues that helped sell the property within one day of listing it. Tim oversaw the repairs after I left town and knows a whole network of professionals from painters to house cleaners that he called in to help me during a hectic time. He proved himself an exemplary professional. I trust him and would not hesitate to enlist his help again. Thank you for paving a smooth transition for me, Tim, Janet and staff.

Jen is fantastic and answered every question along the way!

With the current economy, we were less than sure we could sell our home in a timely manner. Not only were we able to sell it, we had an agreement to sell in the first week for our original asking price! She was a calming voice whenever we were anxious and helped guide us through the entire process from the listing of our home through the closing. I highly recommend Jen, if you are considering the selling of your current home or purchasing a new home!!!

Richard &Margaret Szahowski (Retired)

Ken Harlan helped me with a Lubbock, TX property that my mother had lived in.

As I was unfamiliar with the Lubbock market, Ken's input was EXTREMELY helpful. He advised me on how to prepare the property for sale, how to handle it during the sale process, and additionally handled on site problems while I was out of the area. I have no doubt that I netted more at closing (after all fees etc.) than I would have had I gone the "for sale by owner" route. His efforts were in excess of what I expected, so I would hire him as my realtor again.


Jen was absolutely amazing.

So much paperwork and she just stayed on top of every bit of it to make sure we got to closing. Very thankful to have her. Even after we closed there was so much to do and she didn't leave me alone. Thank you so much!

Claudia Gomez

Jon was a fantastic realtor.

He walked me through the whole process from looking at houses to the purchase of just the right one. After the purchase he followed-up with me to see if I needed anything. I would give him my highest rating.

Lynn Simpson (Retired)

Ken has gone way beyond in assisting me finding the perfect home.

He has been very patient and has even assisted me in my mortgage questions and what to expect. I highly recommend Ken Harlan as your Realtor.

Calvin Riggins

Tamra was so helpful in finding our new home.

Throughout the process, she was patient and flexible as our needs and wants changed, always available to answer questions or look at listings, and able to get information for us anytime we asked. I would recommend Tamra to anyone looking to purchase a property!

Kembra Howell
