I recently went through the Kenny Klaus Team to buy a house. They were so fantastic! Everything went smoothly from beginning to end. If you're thinking of selling OR buying, please contact the Kenny Klaus Team. You won't be sorry you did! See ReviewMary Harrington
Kenny and I are working on a transaction together and am very impressed on his communication, follow-up and timeframe that he completes requests. I would highly recommend him in your Real Estate needs. See ReviewDan Monroe
Kenny is the best! He has sold our last home and helped us buy 2 houses since! He is honest and thorough. Has an amazing sales package with video walk-through. I would recommend him to all my friends and family!Tracey Brown
I have purchase homes, sold homes and leased homes with the Kenny Klaus Team. Through every step of the process Kenny and his team were knowledgable, professional and efficient. Having done so many transactions with Kenny and his team I have had my share of trying circumstances and Kenny and his team were professional and fair in every transaction. See Review
Kenny helped us sell a home and located the perfect house for us to buy. He is very personable and caring and the same can be said about his whole team. We've recommended to friends many times.Mike Austin, Home Buyer
We highly recommend the Kenny Klaus team! We worked with Kenny to sell our home. He was very knowledgable of the area and priced our home right. It sold in 5 days for the asking price! We worked with Rick Collins, also part of the Klaus team. I don't think you could find a better realtor! He was great to work with, knowledgable, and helped us find our dream home! In the office I worked with Stephanie Seymor, she was very friendly and helpful. Overall a great experience! See ReviewDanielle Shasteen
We had Kenny not only sell our home, but he also helped us find a new home that fit us and who we are. Both took place in 30 days. We did not have the best buying experience with the seller, but it was handled extremely professional. Being on the buying side we were under time limits and stressed with the sellers actions to say the least, but Kenny continues to listen to our frustrations and reactive outburst. In the end we got the home we wanted and are looking forward to enjoying many years in our new home. Thanks Kenny!! See review.
Kenny and team were very familiar with the east valley and our neighborhood specifically. We enjoyed working with this team and would highly recommend. See reviewKasey Gilliam
Kenny is well known in Augusta Ranch. He sold me the house 10 years ago and I went to him to sell it for me now. Kenny knows the Augusta Ranch area very well and is respected in the area. See ReviewMark St.Germain
Kenny is very professional and KNOWS the area. He was able to sell our home above the asking price in just 19 days! If you have a home to sell in south east Mesa Kenny is who you should contact. His team kept us informed and up to date on what was happening. His marketing of your home is best out there. The pictures on the flyers & internet with their HD camera really made our home look it's best. Plus he has a truck to help assist you in your move. Overall we were extremely satisfied with the entire process and the Kenny Klaus Team. See Review
Kenny knows the area and the market. He was very helpful and his team kept us up to date. I recommend using Kenny for all of your real estate needs. He sold our home in just 19 days at above the asking price! See ReviewRebecca
When I moved into my home I needed some work done around the house. I called Kenny to see if he new anyone he could recommend.
