Our Client Testimonials
From the moment we contacted him for his assistance selling our condo to after dropping off the keys to the house he helped negotiate for us, Ben was an utmost professional. He responds to questions and suggestions immediately and was available whenever we had questions. Ben was instrumental to the success of our rather seamless sale and purchase. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him in the future.
Steve & Chris
Ben was always there whenever we asked him to be. As first time home buyers, with complicated viewing availability due to travel and work schedules, Ben was incredibly flexible and made the process an enjoyable one. He always listened – whether it was the first property we looked at or the twenty-fifth. We never felt pressured, but Ben was quick to let us know about new properties and the status of properties we had viewed and expressed interest in. We would highly recommend Ben if you are looking for an insightful and low pressure agent.
Tim & Sarah
Ben is a consummate professional and could not have been more friendly, knowledgeable about the Seattle condo market and sales process, and ready with invaluable judgment and insights. He was really the key to getting a good transaction done in record time with minimal headaches. He is easy and fun to work with and I only wish I had more condos to sell with him. You will not find a harder working agent in Seattle than Ben Kakimoto.
Ben represented me in buying a condo in a market with a very low inventory where condos were moving quickly out of the market, 1-3 days. What I like the most is his promptness in responding to my emails, calls, requests for viewing, making an offer, changing the offer… whatever was needed. He is flexible, fast, and excellent to work with: viewings were scheduled in a matter of hours if necessary due to the hot market. At the same time he was not pushing me to make a decision. He was 100% dedicated.
Ben helped us with the purchase of our condominium and with our sale of our condominium in West Seattle. He was very conscientious and helpful in both transactions and very willing to meet us at times that fit our crazy schedules. He carefully walked us through all of the steps in the purchase of the Decatur and was thorough and patient with our many questions and repeated visits to the condo. He helped us with the listing and made all the arrangements for showing our Seabird condominium. As it turned out we actually found the buyer because she is a friend of ours, but she did become aware that the unit was available through the listing. Ben was very flexible, helpful and extremely fair in working out the details of the sale. This was important because we needed to leave the country before the sale could close. As before, Ben was very conscientious about keeping us informed about the progress of the transaction. We would happily recommend him as a real estate agent.
