I selected optional properties through Zillow and selected Ken as my agent to secure the purchase of a specific property on Lummi Island. Ken went above and beyond with customer service by giving us a personal tour and answering a multitude of questions. He made the cash purchase smooth and I felt he gave me all the important information I needed to make an informed purchase. Because Ken Swanson lives on Lummi Island himself, he is an excellent choice for securing your perfect home away from home. The personal tour and abundant information, as well as accessibility for questions and follow up made the experience a smooth one.


Ken did a great job- he turned multiple escalation clause offers into $40k over asking price. He was easily reachable, and went above and beyond his realtor duties.

William & Kathryn

Ken was the best! He was so helpful & patient with us. As first-time home buyers, we couldn't have asked for a better agent!


Ken made buying our first home a breeze! Overall great experience. Ken was knowledgeable, detail oriented and very flexible with our busy schedule.
We love our new house. Thanks for helping to make it possible! We would happily refer friends & family. Ken's calmness helped our anxious minds be at ease and the buying process painless.


I was blessed to have Ken as my agent. An honest man who knows the Island and thru exposure as a regular at the Farmers Market gave my house maximum exposure.

We received your message, and we hope you had a great Christmas. Also, we wish you the best in the new year.

Jeff and I want to thank you for all your help throughout the whole house buying process. We thought you did a wonderful job, and would recommend you to everyone in need of an agent. We felt you were very organized, and we loved the weekly updates.
You went above and beyond all our expectations.

Thank you for taking photos of our home while the new roof was being installed, thank you for all the updates, thank you for helping us move our things into the garage, I really don't think we can thank you enough.
You are a step above the rest. And thank you for being a big part of this new step in our lives. Again, have a wonderful new year, we will be in touch
Jeff and Denise C.


Dear Ken,

Nancy and I want to thank you very much for helping get us into our new home on S---- Rd. I know you did extensive searches for us trying to find our desired “rancher” and appropriate acreage in the area we specified. We very much appreciated that, and the fact that when we found this property you took the ‘bull by the horns’ and gave us a very professional, informative package with the property descriptions and all data pertinent for us to make the decision to ‘buy’. We certainly have no regrets and realize that our new home is very close to what we would have built ourselves.

I would also like to thank you for your suggestion of getting a second quotation for paving the driveway rather than use the builder’s sub. Whatcom Builders gave us 3,864 square feet of pavement, 13’ wide, wider at the garage, including turn area, interfacing with the neighbor and going out to S----y Rd. The sub’s bid was approximately 900 square feet less, only 10 feet wide, no turn area and no interface with the neighbor for $75.00 more. I feel we easily increased the value of our property by $10,000.00.

Finally Ken, thank you for helping us get a list of the subcontractors on the house since the seller has since gone bankrupt. This has been a great help since, as you know, we have run into some problems. We at least have someone to call during our supposedly one year warranty.

Again thank you for your professional service and helping us get the home and property that we have been looking for these past 5 years. We will happily recommend you to anyone we come in contact with real estate needs and should you need us as a reference, please feel free to do so.


Gary & Nancy W.
