Kevin was such a pleasure to work with! He really made our home shine when it went on the market with lots of personalized touches that highlighted the parts of our home that we loved. It was reassuring to work with someone so knowledgeable and easy to talk to about real estate, which I found to be a somewhat complicated endeavor!
Kevin Zelko did a phenomenal job helping us buy our new house. He's always on top of things, knowledgeable, responsive, and very helpful. I was so impressed by how he bent over backwards to help us at every turn. This house is pretty much my dream home, but if I ever buy another home I would definitely use him again!
Kevin helped us in August 2020 to purchase our very first home. Navigating a couple of different markets in Seattle, Tacoma and Bremerton, and working with us from a distance (we were in NYC), Kevin was prompt and professional on the phone, clear with details regarding each particular listing, and was very available for our local people to go to open houses (over a dozen!)
He was super patient with all of our questions as first-time home buyers, and was also able to find us a really super place...see more
Kevin was very available and took our calls/day/night. Thank you!
Kevin was rock solid for us while we sold our home. Selling during a pandemic and cultural revolution is not ideal, but Kevin’s extensive network and resources made it easy for us.
Whether as the buyer or seller, we recommend Kevin without hesitation.
I worked with Kevin to sell my condo in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. I was impressed with the service and knowledge he offered. He had contacts to the people to do the painting and fixes I needed, and staged it to look SO GOOD! He was consultative throughout the process but still took my ideas and opinions into consideration and was very easy to work with as we navigated through a multiple offer situation.
Kevin went many extra miles for us both in selling our former home and finding and purchasing our new one. Excellent to work with on all counts.
Kevin is amazing and I am so happy I was able to work with him in buying my first house. When I decided to start looking for a house, everyone and their brother was recommending me agents to work with and Kevin was recommended to me multiple times. I had so many questions about the process and Kevin was there to answer any/all of them …. 24/7. He explained everything in detailed and guided me with discovering/narrowing down what I was looking for. He is extremely flexible with scheduling and w...see more
Kevin was so great! We were first time home buyers and buying from across the country, but he was so helpful and responsive and very patient with us. He was easy to work with, with lots of insight into the Puget Sound real estate market. Will be using him when we need a realtor again.
Working with Kevin was a delight! He was so responsive and proactive during moments when I wasn't able to be. The move was a big one, and especially busy in a pandemic, and Kevin was on top of everything and went above and beyond in helping to prepare the house. He kept us informed of any potential changes to guidelines, and of everything happening in the market before listing. He also scheduled services, and helped us understand everything about the offer process. Thank you, Kevin!
Kevin-Thank you for always being available when we have any questions about houses & the buying process. We are so happy to have found such a wonderful home.
Kevin was fantastic to work with yet again in the homebuying process. He helped me purchase a condo in downtown Seattle 1.5 years ago so logically he was my go-to choice for a realtor in buying a home with my fiancé this fall. Kevin was super on top of things and was very eager to help us find a place to call our own. He provided a lot of useful resources and knowledge about different housing options in the area. His insight into current market conditions was helpful to make sure we were prepar...see more
I talked to multiple agents before deciding to engage with Kevin as my agent to help me purchase my first home, and I could not be happier with my decision to do so. Firstly, Kevin was extremely patient and coached me throughout the full process without pressuring at all. We toured houses for over 3 months to get me used to the process and seeing what was on the market before I even got a pre-approval letter. This patience helped me become way more confident in my eventual choice and helped me...see more
As you can guess, selling a house during a pandemic and a revolution is not ideal, especially for first-time sellers. Kevin kept us confident and secure during the entire process and made sure we knew exactly what we were doing each step of the way. I highly recommend Kevin Zelko and LakeRE.
Thank you again. I am very stoked for you Kevin. You are a born Real Estate Broker. You were exactly the agent we needed. Please use us for any referrals or otherwise. Thank you again.
I definitely recommend Kevin as a realtor. He helped us with finding and buying a new home as well as selling our old home. Kevin went all out for us, always going the extra mile! He was very responsive to our needs and wishes as he learned what we were looking for in a new home as we down-sized and he helped us through the offer-negotiation-purchase-financing process very well. When it came to selling our old home, Kevin’s skill at drawing positive attention to it was stellar. The staging and...see more
Kevin did an amazing job helping us sell our home. Being first time sellers, we were a little overwhelmed. Kevin put us at ease right away. His communication is top notch and you can tell he's excited to talk you through the process and answer any questions you may have. He is very knowledgeable about the housing market and invested in the community. Kevin is an incredibly kind and positive person and went out of his way to make sure we were confident in every aspect of the process. We highly re...see more
Kevin was great to work with. We weren't in the market for a home but had been lightly peeking at homes online to get a sense of what our forever home looked like. We ended up finding our dream home 5 years early and contacted Kevin last minutes to go check it out and ended up falling in love. Kevin checked in when important dates came up, recommended great services as they were needed and was all around knowledgeable about the process. We were in no way prepared to upend our lives but we had gr...see more
