Reviews

Camilla and Kens service has been absolutely outstanding during the purchase of our new home at the Eco Village in Currumbin Valley. Sometimes one dream comes true at a time that makes things hard to navigate but with Camilla's understanding nature and Kens tremendous knowledge wild dreams become achievable. The fact we were able to buy a property interstate at a difficult time speaks volumes to Camilla and Kens professionalism. From warm welcomes and follow ups, to helping us find amazing people to conduct inspections and conveyancing you have been a tremendous help at every stage. I highly recommend this fantastic team to turn your realestate hopes into reality. Thank you.

I had owned 80 acres of rainforest in Currumbin Valley for 33 years and over the years kept an eye on who was the most successful sales person in the valley. Ken’s smiling face kept appearing on the for sale signs and so when it came time for me to sell I didn’t hesitate to approach him. My land was out of the ordinary as how does one sell something that really takes years to appreciate and to be able to delve into every corner of 80 acres of thick forest with soaring cliffs. Ken didn’t hesitate to take on the sale though as he is as passionate about the two valleys as I am. Even with an injured leg and limited mobility, Ken still managed to engender the right level of enthusiasm for the land in the prospective purchasers. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ken and his team at Ray White Tugun. Ken is down to earth, good natured, knowledgeable and highly professional. A wonderful mix to encounter in a human being.

Ken, There are not enough words to convey to you how impressed I was/am with the professionalism and commitment you displayed from day one! I could not have hoped for a better result and you ensured the process was as seamless as possible. You are, unequivocally, the best agent I have ever dealt with and will be espousing your “awesomeness” for a long time to come. Thankyou, Thankyou!

A Cox - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

We chose Ken to sell our first home for us after being recommended by a friend who told us 'he's not just an agent, he's a really genuine guy'. Never a truer word spoken. From start to finish Ken was warm, kind and exceptionally professional. Nothing was ever an issue for him and he truly goes above and beyond to make the entire process stress free, even down to filling up our treasured dogs' water bowl before leaving an open home!! Ken was true to his appraisal of the property, meeting the market and treating his job as an exciting challenge. It's hard not to be motivated for a great result with Ken working with you. We were so impressed with every aspect of selling our home and we never felt as if we were lacking any information. He guided us beautifully through the whole process and shared our excitement at achieving the goal we set to achieve. We highly, highly recommend Ken to anyone selling their property. He truly is a genuine agent with a true passion for real estate and people".

Ken Jacob gave us stellar performance as our agent and on following all his instructions he subsequently secured a quick sale of our property at 600 Tallebudgera Creek Road, Tallebudgera Valley. So People, Hear Me When I Say Kens Your Man.

Ken sold us a wonderful house in Tallebudgera Valley. We found Ken easy to deal with, fair, honest and helpful with the after sales queries. He was quick to respond to our questions during the sales process and had an easy to understand, transparent approach to the negotiation.

D & S Oakley - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

I would like to note that I found Ken ​professional at all times throughout the sale process of our property. He always put in 110% and spent a lot of his own time to ensure that we would reach a successful outcome. His communication was always thorough and despite some challenges he found solutions to these challenges and was still able to reach the outcome required. Thank you again for your tireless efforts.

A Ploegsma - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

We just purchased a property through Ken Jacob and would gladly recommend him as a real estate agent for the listing of your home. He helped us navigate a stressful time with ease and reassurance. We felt listened to and he worked very hard to get the deal done with professionalism and enthusiasm. Now that we are settling into the home we are beyond happy! Thanks to Ken and his team for all of your help and patience! Kathy​ and Archie

K & A Hagen - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Genevieve and I would like to express to you our heartfelt gratitude for assisting us with the purchase of our home at the Eco Village in Currumbin Valley. It's a very special place, we thought it was going to be incredible but it has exceeded our expectations. Your honesty, friendliness and down to earth nature, not to mention your significant experience and knowledge of the area made the purchase process straightforward and easy. Both Genevieve and I would highly recommend you to anyone selling or buying in the Currumbin Valley or Tallebudgera Valley area.”

"Ken sold us a wonderful house in Tallegudgera Valley. We found Ken easy to deal with, fair, honest and helpful with the after sales queries. He was quick to respond to our questions during the sales process and had an easy to understand, transparent approach to the negotiation." These testimonials are very important to me. Warm regards Details Hangouts

D & S Oakley - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

We looked to buy in Tallebudgera Valley for 18 months and most of the houses we looked at were through Ken Jacob. When it came to the house we ended up buying, it wasn’t even a house I was interested in looking at. Ken really persuaded me to come and have a look and I fell in love with it instantly. Obviously he knew exactly what we were looking for. He then talked us into putting in an offer which we did and the deal was done in less than 24 hours. We have bought and sold many times and some agents keep you waiting days for a response. Ken went above and beyond what is expected of an agent.

K & D Torode - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Wow! What an amazing sale. Ken sold me my property in the Tallebudgera Valley 4 years ago and I was so impressed at his abilities then, that I recently chose him to sell the same property for me. The sale was even more spectacular. When I approached Ken, he already had some buyers in mind. He has an incredible genuine connection with both the buyer and the seller and goes over and above what is expected to make a sale. Bottom line, it was all signed, sealed and delivered in 5 days………and I got a great price! He’s a natural…….

P Baruksopulo - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

I w​ould recommend Ken Jacob to be your choice of agent, whether you're buying or selling. Our family have used him to sell two houses in recent times and we can't speak highly enough of his professionalism. My house was under contract within 3 weeks and I was happy with the outcome.

F Ingall - BURLEIGH HEADS

We just wanted to take this time to thank you personally and the team at Ray White Elanora/Tugun for the successful sale of our home and successful purchase of our new block of land which we hope to build our forever home on in the near future. Ken you did a great job putting our deal together and working with us to achieve a great outcome. Thank you also to your lovely wife Deb for her help.

P & A Earl - ELANORA

Ken was enthusiastic, knowledgable and prepared to put the work in - i.e. well advertised and well conducted open houses each weekend. He achieved a great result, being able to exceed the asking price.

C & G Rottier - CURRUMBIN VALLEY

From our very first dealings with Ken we knew we had made the right decision in choosing Ken to sell our family property. Ken is a very personable, professional and dedicated person. He has the unique ability to be diligent and tenacious without ever being intrusive or pushy. We had complete confidence in Ken throughout the entire sales process and he kept us well informed all the way through. We were very impressed with Ken's capability to bring forward multiple buyers and maintain their interest long enough to obtain the best possible outcome for us. Ken's knowledge and passion for the area, extensive experience and his genuine desire to help his clients are a credit to him. We would highly recommend Ken to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property. He is the only man for the job. Thanks again Ken, couldn't have done it without you! The Haydon Family.

The Haydon Family - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Ken gets results. As valley residents for over six years of renting we thought we would be dreaming to find the perfect house to purchase in the valley. Ken had the perfect property for us and encouraged us to make an offer. This got the ball rolling which resulted in a sale that made both buyer and seller happy. The sale was handled with utmost professionalism and Ken is a pleasure to deal with. Ken went out of his way before and after the sale to answer any questions and was genuinely excited for us, especially the fact we were able to stay in the valley and this great community.

Nicole & Guy - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Hi Ken, I hope this finds you well, Lauren and I just wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you for the seamless purchase of Lemontree Lane. All of our questions were answered promptly and all information was was relayed to us in a way that help both myself and Lauren feel very comfortable and at ease. We wouldn’t hesitate in either using or referring you for any future property dealings. Yours sincerely Siamon Emery.

L Hodge & S Emery - CURRUMBIN VALLEY

I am genuinely happy to recommend Ken Jacob as the Agent of choice for anyone who may be considering selling their property in Tallebudgera Valley. We have dealt with Ken on two occasions, when we purchased our property and then again when we sold it recently. We could not go past Ken”s down to earth approach and we knew from our experience with him as purchasers that he would be working hard to get the very best outcome for us as the sellers. He's a genuine sort of a guy who has a real passion for the community. His help has been ongoing and didn't stop at the sale conclusion. He then helped us secure a rental property and I know he puts some effort into orientating incoming owners too. Thanks Ken, Matt and I really appreciated your efforts.

S Beale & M Smyth - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Just wanted to jot down a few words to let people know how easy selling can be. I must admit, when my husband and I first decided to sell, the anxiety and stress that comes with the process was quite daunting. Enter Ken Jacobs. His reassurance and positive approach to selling made the whole process, with its ups and downs, effortless. Ken negotiated a pleasing sale price on our home and nothing was ever too much trouble for him. If you live in the valley and are thinking of a change, don’t hesitate to contact Ken Jacobs. His extensive knowledge of the area, robust contact list and skilled negotiation skills will ensure a seamless, stress free sale, just like ours. Thanks again ken.

K & G Potter - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

In dealings with real estate agents in the past, I have had nothing but negative experiences with them and their pushy attitudes. When me and my family first encountered Mr Ken Jacob we straight away felt comfortable and a real sense of trust. What was a real eye opener for my family is that Ken is a fantastic community man and his knowledge of Tallebudgera Valley was a real help as we were new comers to this fantastic area. Ken's no nonsense, and straight down the line approach was a big tick for me when we purchased in Tallebudgera Valley and can happily say that we would love to use his services again. If you are thinking of selling your property, i would have absolute no hesitation in telling family and friends about Mr Ken Jacob

B Burrows - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Ken has been fantastic to deal with when selling my house. Ken is not pushy and is completely genuine, I have the upmost respect for the way he conducts business. I 100% recommend this gentleman to sell or buy anything from him. It was a pleasure doing business with you Ken and if and when I need to buy again I'll be looking in your direction. I mean every word, thank you Ken and take care of yourself.

L Sjollema - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Thank you to Ken and Debbie Jacob and the team at Ray White Tugun. We are extremely thrilled with the very quick sale of our beautiful property and home to the equine rescue and rehabilitation 'Project Ponies' at Petsch Creek Road, Tallebudgera Valley. Being a local to the valley himself, Ken Jacob's knowledge and passion for the area was a great asset for achieving a fantastic price all within only 10 days of a month long Auction campaign. We purchased the 7.5 acre property just 2 years prior from Ken Jacob at Ray White Tugun, so engaging him as our agent was our number one choice!!! Very happy vendors, The Kelaart family.

C Kelaart - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Towards the end of 2016 we chose to market some land we had held in the Tallebudgera Valley for almost 20 years. It was our good fortune to meet Ken Jacob after reading his "Valley Life" publication and forming a favourable opinion of his professionalism and superior local knowledge--we were not to be disappointed. We asked Ken to be our agent and take our property to market. What "Valley Life" did not tell us is just how tirelessly Ken works for you once he takes on your property and how easy he is to work with. A number of things needed to be done in order to have the land ready to show potential buyers. Ken was most helpful in having the boundaries of the three lots defined and indeed he personally marked out building blocks on some. Despite the heat in December, January and February, Ken repeatedly walked the land which is virgin bush and very steep in some areas. He constantly kept us in the loop and put all propositions to us immediately they were offered. By the end of April contracts on all three lots had been settled at the price we had been seeking. We would strongly recommend Ken to anyone looking for an agent who is honest, expert in his area and hard working and is a great man to deal with.

L & B McKeering - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

As a buyer we felt very comfortable dealing with Ken. He went above and beyond on all occasions often making contact after hours to fit in with our schedule and always keeping the lines of communication open letting us know where we stood at all times. His level of integrity was apparent through the whole process and he negotiated through some tough moments to end up with a sale price that made both sides happy. We were very fortunate that the sellers chose Ken to be their agent.

T & W Merrostsy - TALLEBUDGERA

It is now over 6 months since I settled into my gorgeous home in the Valley and nearly 12 months since first meeting you. My buying experience through you was personal and stress free. I would like to record my total satisfaction in the professional way you handled the sale and purchase. You were always working for the vendor but your communication skills and approach left nothing to be desired. Of course your love of the "Valley" where you live and your "Valley" knowledge was infectious.

S Torv - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Thank you again Ken for your expertise, you are definitely our 'go to' real estate agent! This year you helped us buy then sell, and each time we were very happy with you and the outcome. We would highly recommend you to everyone we know as it is clear that your knowledge of the Valley and of realestate is second to none."

J & L Paul - CURRUMBIN VALLEY

It is not often that you come across a real estate agent who is genuinely enthusiastic and passionate about marketing a property. Not only is Ken enthusiastic and passionate, but he genuinely works on behalf of the vendor to secure the best price and terms possible. We couldn’t be happier with the effort shown by Ken to achieve the best result in relation to the sale of our property.

B & D Ireland - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Ken Jacob has just sold a block of land for my wife and I and we couldn't be happier with his service and the sale outcome. A change of plans drove our sale, we first met Ken from when he sold the land to us (as agent) a couple of years ago. Because Ken provided good service when we were buyers we didn't hesitate to contact him again when we needed to sell. As a selling agent appointed by us this time, Ken was able to attract a couple of interested parties not long after the land went up for sale and worked to get the best price for us. My wife and I are a bit cynical about the often quoted claim that agents work for the seller - our experience has been that some selling agents put more emphasis on negotiating the seller's price down than negotiating to achieve the best price. In this case however, Ken was able to achieve a price more than our original asking price; we benefited of course from the multiple offers on the table but we're sure that this was handled with integrity by Ken in the interests of both buyer and seller. We're more than happy to recommend Ken as a selling agent.

T Mercer & D Scovell - Currumbin Valley

I would like to recommend Ken ​Jacob to anyone wishing to either purchase or sell within The Currumbin Ecovillage. Ken was able to provide to me a stress free experience. His knowledge of Eco living is second to none. He is fully aware of the rules & obligations associated with living the Eco lifestyles as well as the personal desires and goals that come along with this community. Ken kept me posted on each step and detail and even though we were in two different states it made no difference at all. I conclude with stating that whilst considering Eco Living you must engage Ken ​Jacob​ who will guide. You through this specialised area in a way that a regular real estate agent would simply be not able to do so. Ken not only understands this boutique market, but he understands the people as well.

D B Meznaric - Currumbin Valley

Thank you Ken for selling my land in the Currumbin Eco Village. It all happened so quickly and easily too. I'm sure Your knowledge of the area and your sincerity had a lot to do with the sale's success.

D Greenaway - Currumbin Valley

We had the pleasure to have Ken assist us with buying the current home we are in and the selling of an investment property that we had renovated, both were are great success! Ken speaks very passionately about the area which reflects in the sincerity of his selling process which makes you feel like he is not the standard real estate agent...... and we have met a few! We would highly recommend Ken as an agent.

V & R Sales - Tallebudgera Valley

Hi Ken, I just wanted to thank you for selling 10 Honeywood prior to auction. Loved your photos; and appreciate your professionalism

Fay - Burleigh Waters

Hi Ken, we both just want to say “thanks so much” for the persistence and hours you put in on 54 Petsch Creek Rd. I know you put in a fair share of your time to make the sale work. Your testimony is the number of ‘Sold’ Ken Jacob Ray White signs in the valley. Great job.

D & S Murphy - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

Dear Ken, We want to thank you for the wonderful job you did on the sale of our land at the Ecovillage in Currumbin. You knew this was a difficult and emotional decision for us, and the personal attention and guidance you gave us showed you to have enormous empathy and compassion. You found us a buyer in less than two weeks and thanks to your great negotiation skills, the sale went through quickly without any problems. We are very pleased that we put the sale of our land in your hands; a very warm thank you for all the good advice and support that you gave us throughout the whole process.

I & M Lass - CURRUMBIN VALEY

We recently sold our home on 8 acres in Tallebudgera Valley. Ken has lived in the valley for many years and has gained much local knowledge which he is able to hand onto clients. Ken and his wife Debbie were a great team and complimented each other with their skills during the process of selling our family home. Ken was enthusiastic and professional in his dealings with us. We would thoroughly recommend him to anyone thinking of buying or selling in the valley. Thank you Ken and Debbie for all your hard work in selling our house.

V & P Alexander - TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY

When you are preparing to sell your home of twenty two years , choosing the right real estate agent to guide you through the process becomes your number one priority. Ken Jacob's testimonials were very positive, and our decision to use Ken to sell and market our property was unreservedly the right one. Throughout the campaign , Ken was professional and honest , kept us consistently updated and his advice was sound . He is passionate and knowledgeable about this locality and his continuous support and energy reassured us that he would achieve a successful sale . We are delighted with the outcome , all thanks to Ken who worked tirelessly on our behalf.

P & H Frampton - Tallebudgera Valley

We recently purchased our dream property through Ken Jacob. The property wasn't officially on the market but thanks to Kens vast knowledge of properties in the Currumbin Valley area and one late night phone conversation with Ken we were able to secure our purchase. Ken knew all the ins and outs of our property at our first inspection and spent a considerable amount of time walking through it with us. Ken had such a humble approach to assisting us. ​He was able to answer all our questions and his communication was prompt and efficient without the heavy sales pitch pressure I have experienced in the past. I would definitely be contacting Ken if we needed to sell or purchase in the future and would recommend others to do the same.

K Mooney - Currumbin Valley

Our dealings with Ken Jacob have given us renewed faith in the real estate industry. Ken offers a service that in our opinion goes beyond other agents that we have dealt with. He presented the facts to us simply and we felt we could rely upon everything he said. Ken is a true gentleman, honest and professional in every way. It is without hesitation that we recommend Ken to look after your sale or purchase of any kind, particularly the Gold Coast hinterland, which is clearly his backyard.

M & K Beattie - Currumbin Valley

When we decided to put our property on the market we consulted with three different agents who all had experience in Tallebudgera Valley. During this process it became apparent that Ken Jacob of Ray White had significant knowledge of the Valley market and this was evidenced by his impressive track record of sales over recent years. Ken provided invaluable guidance and support during the whole sales/marketing process and was ever-attentive to our ideas and suggestions. It was a truly collaborative effort. Although the sale took some time Ken's enthusiasm and focus never wavered. His tenacity realized a sale which met our expectations and which was executed with efficiency and a high degree of professionalism. Given this experience we have absolutely no hesitation in commending Ken to anyone selling their house in Tallebudgera Valley.

G & S Wood - Tallebudgera Valley

My husband and I made the difficult decision to put our Tallebudgera Valley home on the market. Upon making this decision we did a lot of research in relation to the agent we would use to market and hopefully sell our pride and joy of nearly ten years. I feel the best recommendation is word of mouth by people you know - Ken's name kept coming up so we decided to give him a call. Right from day one Ken was professional, polite, honest, enthusiastic and understanding of what we wanted the outcome to be in relation to the sale of our home. My husband and I have renovated and sold numerous houses together, therefore dealt with many agents in doing so; I can honestly say Ken was never once pushy in the way he conducted his business; where many (or most) agents are as they want a quick sale for themselves. Ken is extremely passionate about the Valley's on the Gold Coast and this shines through when he deals with prospective buyers, he speaks from experience as he actually lives in one of them. Ken sold our property in two weeks, which was AMAZING and unexpected, not once did I feel he wasn't working for the seller (us), he kept us totally informed about every possible buyer. We are going to miss the Valley but we are moving on and are very excited about our future which Ken has considerably improved with this sale. I just hope with this quick sale that Ken's customer service continues and he offers to help us pack and move - seriously we would recommend Ken to anyone looking to sell as he is an honest true gentleman and they are quite difficult to find in the real estate game.

M & J Lewis

I have been a builder for many, many years (retired) and have had a lot to do with Real Estate agents. I have found Ken as one of the most professional and organised person I have met in the Real Estate business. Ken and his wife Debbie have worked hard to sell my property and was willing to discuss with me what I was needing to do to help sell. I would recommend him to any of my friends.

B Ryan - Currumbin Valley

Ken was lovely to deal with in the sale of our family’s property. He was professional and discreet with the tenants in the property at the time and kept us updated on what was happening at all times. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending anyone to see Ken if they are considering buying or selling their property. Thanks Ken! Hope to do more business with you soon!

K Gould - Currumbin Valley

We first met Ken when we looked at some land he had for sale. We were impressed. He`s the one to sell our property we thought and we were right. Selling your house is 3 out of 10 on the stress level scale. Ask Ken to take care of it as he genuinely cares about people and his communication skills are excellent. Throughout the entire selling process he always kept us informed. Ken takes pride in his work and we felt that he worked with us not for us. Thank you Ken.

N & V Walker - Tallebudgera Valley

Harvey and I have known you on a personal basis for quite a few years and have found that to be a pleasant experience. Never having dealt with you on a professional basis we weren't sure on how you would handle the selling of our house but Ken you never at any time let Harvey and I down. You treated both of us with a lot of respect which means a lot to both of us. Harvey and I would not be the easiest people to do deals with as being in business ourselves we expect a lot from other business people. Ken you didn't let us down in anyway. You went out of your way to communicate with us on every level and trust me after dealing with other agents before this was a big plus. As our house was leased and had tenants you also gave the tenants a lot of respect which once again Harvey and I really appreciated and thank you for. At no time during the selling of the house did I ever think that you wouldn't come through for us as you always had our best interest at heart. Because you are so passionate about the Valley at no time would we have ever thought of going to another Real Estate as that passion always showed through when you had an open house or showing people through our home. Once again Ken thank you very very much for making what could of been a stressful time in our life a pleasant experience.

H & D Lewis - Tallebudgera Valley

Hi Ken, We just wanted to thank you for all your assistance in the sale of our property. My initial " gut" feeling in listing exclusively with you was correct. Unlike many other Gold Coast agents , you were totally communicative,professional and approachable throughout the entire sale process. You were totally honest with both ourselves and prospective buyers and worked with both sides in what was, at times,difficult circumstances. No ... " white shoes and gold chains"... Just total commitment to a result! We have already recommended you to others as your knowledge and passion for living and working in the Tallebudgera/ Currumbin Valleys is obvious having dealt with you. I can't imagine any other Agent helping us pack and clean up on settlement day! We thank you again for your help and please don't hesitate to have prospective vendors call us if they require a reference. Cheers and good luck and health to you and your lovely wife for 2015 and beyond.

John & Eileen Randall - Tallebudgera

From day one you were going to be the person to sell our beautiful home as you really did care about us & the people who were going to be living there. You sold our home to the perfect family & I was so happy to know that they were going to be living there and making their happy memories just like we had over the past 11 years! You are not the "average real estate agent", you are kind, considerate, patient & very understanding. We have bought & sold half a dozen properties over the years & you by far have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. We loved how you specifically only dealt in the Valleys, this meant to us that you really knew your properties & the market. We also loved how involved in the valley community you are, everyone talks so positive about you whenever the "real estate" topic came up, I think you would hold the record in properties sold ! Thanks again for being there for us, we really appreciate everything you did to find the right family for our home.

Dan & Sandy Ryan - Tallebudgera Valley

"You want it SOLD then KEN is Your MAN" Ken has just sold yet another property in the beautiful Tallebudgera Valley in Only 1 month of listing and I am so glad it is mine. I chose Ken to sell my unique rainforest property "Bali Hi" as he has the best Track record in the valley for getting results. I found him to be passionate, knowledgeable, positive and inspiring confidence. Having once sold real estate myself I know a very good agent when I see one! It is very important that you have confidence in your agent and Ken does what He says keeping you constantly informed with accurate progress at every stage. Thanks once again KEN for a job well done.

Doug Ketley - Tallebudgera Valley

Due to a terminal illness we had to sell our property in Tallebudgera Valley, I contacted you, Ken because of your sold signs up everywhere. Our situation was very delicate and quite emotional. From the first phone conversation with you, you showed empathy and understanding. You were very patient and honest and helped ease the difficult situation. From the first conversation right through to the sale and still now, you have been very patient, no pressure at all, have kept us in constant contact as to where we are up to with things, and have carried this out with impeccable professionalism. Your passion for everything is quite rare, but very valuable. Your knowledge of the Property and your passion for the Valley's is priceless and surely helped us to gain a sale quickly and at a price we are happy with. Before these dealings we had never met Ken, since dealing with Ken, he has become a professional friend, not an acquaintance. If I should ever require any real estate dealings in the future, I would have no hesitation in using Ken and would highly recommend Ken to anyone considering selling, buying or just enquiring about any aspect of Real Estate..

Bill - Tallebudgera Valley

Do you want an agent who is professional, honest and genuinely has your best interest at heart? Then Ken Jacob is your man. In the current real estate selling climate Ken was tenacious, incredibly hard working and constantly in communication with us. Thanks Ken for making selling our much loved property a pleasure. Ken found someone who loves it just as much as we do.

M Cox - Tallebudgera Valley

Ken, after 4 months of looking in a very Agent/Seller Market we found you. Although we understand that you need to represent "Your Seller" you went out of your way to work with us to find the right home for us by listening to what we needed and not wasting our time with unsuitable options. You then showed us your ability to work between the "Seller" and the "Buyer" to get a Win/Win scenario. Although our negotiations were like a "tennis match", after all the backwards and forwards of negotiations I believe you got a satisfactory result for the Seller and the Buyer due to your patience and calm nature. The Seller even exchanged phone numbers on settlement to answer any questions as we familiarise ourselves with our new home. We even ran into them at Bunnings the other day and had a chat. We love this home and are so happy to get away from the "city", but still close enough to enjoy it (when we want to). Thanks Ken your the best. P.S. We still need to talk about chickens soon as I want some and need some advice.

The Dowdles - Tallebudgera Valley

We knew we had something different, a 15 year creation on 7.5 acres of paradise in Tallebudgera Valley. A little research and we chose Ken due to his track record, impressive feedback by others and knowledge of the area. He impressed us from word go with a genuine enthusiasm towards our property, but above all Ken made us both feel very comfortable with our decision. Friendly , approachable , down to earth, yet professional, honest, prompt and diligent, you simply couldn't ask for more. We have no hesitation in recommending Ken to anyone wishing to sell their property and sincerely wish him all the best for his future.

W & E Grainger - Tallebudgera Valley

We would like to thank Ken for selling our property in Tallebudgera Valley, after 60 years of farming and always having land it was a sad time in our lives, but as Ken bought the new buyers out to meet us & I was able to talk to them about farm life over the years and answer their questions about the land, such as soils, grasses, fruit trees & water levels. We appreciated that Ken made sure there was not pressure on seller or buyer. Thanking you again.

G & J Gibson - Tallebudgera Valley

We would like to mention how extremely pleased we are with Ken Jacob as our selling agent. He worked with enthusiasm to get contracts under long difficult circumstances due to realignments etc and was respectful to our family knowing it was the end of an era for us as the property had been in the Chippendale family for 5 generations. We would happily recommend him as a selling agent.

Brian & Bev

We hold Ken in the highest regard after engaging his services to sell our home in Currumbin Valley. Ken's experience and great success in marketing the local area along with the long list of recommendations from very happy past clients made it an easy decision to work with him. Listening to Ken talk about the sense of community in the area and his noticeable pride in being a 'local' makes for a winning combination in marketing this wonderful area. He is passionate about helping people and making the connections in finding the right people to purchase your home, and his genuine enthusiasm is infectious. Ken's communication throughout was fantastic, from our initial meeting and inspection of the property (to really get a feel of the place and the lay of the land) to the sale and settlement. He was able to guide us when necessary and answer all of our questions honestly and promptly. His down to earth yet professional approach made us feel the sale of our home was in the best hands. Ken is a true gentleman and we highly recommend him both personally and professionally.

Dear ken, thanks so much for all your help, the time you spent with us, your knowledge of the two valleys and your perseverance in helping us secure the beautiful property in Tallebudgera valley. We can't wait to move in and start planting fruit trees and enjoy the fresh air. We have no hesitation at all in recommending you to anyone seeking the help of a very professional property agent.

M & L Shaw - Tallebudgera Valley

When we decided to seriously look for a Valley property we contacted Ken Jacob. Many of the 'for sale' signs we saw in the valleys had his name on them so we knew he must have a lot of expertise in the area. He didn't disappoint. Ken helped us pinpoint properties to look at to get a feel for the area and what was available in our budget. Being a local himself, Ken was able to give us some great insights and answers to our many questions. He had a good knowledge of each property, its background and features. Once we found 'the house' Ken was fantastic during the negotiation and settlement period. He always kept an open line of communication and made the process as stress free as possible. We are excited to have moved into our dream property in the valley and be part of its wonderful community.

J & M Gyles - Tallebudgera Valley

Recently my husband and I decided to sell our house in Tallebudgera Valley. We contacted three agents before choosing Ken Jacob from Ray White Tugun. The reason for choosing Ken was firstly the fact that he knows and loves the Talley Valley so well. We also noticed his sign on a few properties near ours. Over the few short weeks of advertising before we sold, we noticed Ken had a great insight into the needs of his clients and he was always punctual, friendly and optimistic. Rest assured you will be in good hands when you choose to sell with Ken Jacob.

S & B Beale - Tallebudgera Valley

We first heard about Ken Jacob when a copy of his "Valley Life" newsletter was delivered to our house. We had been thinking of putting our house on the market for a while and as we were impressed by Ken's credentials and enthusiasm for valley life, we thought we would invite him along. As Ken lives in the valley and knows the area and all it has to offer we felt he would be good at promoting the lifestyle and the joys of living here. He is a very honest, courteous and trustworthy man, even agreeing to showing our house when we were away on holiday, during which time he found us a buyer and only seven weeks after placing the house with him. We would therefore recommend Ken to anyone looking to sell their property."

V & J Haley - Tallebudgera Valley

Ken Jacob sold our home in Tallebudgera Valley. We chose Ken because of his record of sales in our area and also he came highly recommended. After meeting Ken we discovered he really listened intently to all that we had to say about selling the property, our price and the method of putting the house on the market. Ken was remarkably diligent and prompt, his advice was very intelligent and spot on. We enjoyed this transaction and came through smoothly and with all parties having a win - win situation, since then Ken is now a friend and I would certain ly recommend him to our own family and friends as well as anybody else who asked our opinion.

Having used Ken Jacob of Ray White Tugun to sell my Tallebudgera Valley property I found Ken to be honest, hard working and a great person. Anyone selling Valley properties should not hesitate to use Ken as their agent.

J Foster - Tallebudgera Valley

We have been the proud owners of our Tallebudgera Valley property for 13 years, so when it came time for us to move on we took considerable time finding the right person who saw what we saw in the property and would represent it justly through the sales process. We received a copy of Ken Jacob's Valley Life Newsletter and I am pleased to say that the moment I met Ken I knew he was the man for the job. He is a man of genuine good character, but just as important he connects well with the properties and clients he represents. We knew we needed to find the right buyers so we were prepared for a wait, but when Ken got the result we wanted on the very first week on the market we were blown away. Ken, thanks so much for you effort and passion in what you do, we are very happy customers!

Geoff & Angie - Tallebudgera Valley

We were in the process of getting ready to put our home on the market when we received a copy of Ken Jacob's "Valley Life" in our mail box & thought we would ask Ken to come up to look at our place. Ken was so genuine & enthusiastic about our property that we decided to go with him there & then, we couldn't believe it when less then a week later our home was sold for a price we were delighted with. Ken Jacob's ethics should be the bench mark for every real estate agent."

Jon & Barbara - Tallebudgera Valley

"Thanks Ken" Your non-intrusive, calm & respectful manner really helped us achieve a great outcome on the sale of our property. We were both really impressed by your professionalism and your clear communication & understanding throughtout the process. "Thanks again"

Mark & Sue - Currumbin Valley

Thanks Ken It was such a pleasure working with Ken Jacob when my husband and I bought land in the Eco Village. He went out of his way to help us and show us the village and surrounding area. We felt none of the pressure that real estate agents usually put on you and it was such an easy and wonderful experience.

Kimberly C & David L - Currumbin Valley

Ken Jacob worked incredibly hard in selling our property from the very beginning. The house was marketed in the high $700s and we weren't disappointed in the sale price. He had an offer on the table within 2 days however this fell through but not to be deterred another was on the table within the week and sold was displayed in 12 days. Ken is an honest, passionate, reliable, genuine guy who really wants the best outcome for you as a client. I would recommend Ken to anyone.

Katie T

It was a pleasure to work with Ken when we bought our beautiful piece of paradise in the Currumbin Ecovillage Highlands. Ken truly loves the land and knows it like the back of his hand. He is very much tuned into the beauty of nature and understands how important it is to find the piece of land that speaks to you. Ken was very accommodating and patient when showing us around all the available blocks. We never felt pushed and he gave us plenty of space to look at each block we liked, as well as all the necessary information when required. During the whole process of buying our block, which was a weekend we have flown over for from Perth, we felt Ken had our best interest at heart, understanding what a huge decision it is to buy land and make a new start, a decision that has to come from deep within

Ken Jacob was the real estate agent with whom we placed our house, in the Eco Village, on the market and subsequently sold. He was very committed and at all times kept us up to date with how the sale was progressing. This was much appreciated as we have found on previous occasions that this is a failing with many salespeople we have had to deal with. He is passionate about the environment and the structure of the Eco Village. At all times Ken was very approachable to discuss any concerns we should have re the sale. We would be happy to recommend him to future sellers and wish him well in the future.

Les & Trish Creed

Since we met Ken Jacob in January 2012 he has provided us consistently with helpful and timely information. This is based on his deep, local knowledge and experience of this area. We were struck by his passionate support for seeing Currumbin Valley continue to protect its status as a unique eco friendly area. Ken has helped us achieve our purchase and sales here at the Ecovillage and we could not have done this without him. I have no hesitation in recommending Ken to prospective buyers or sellers in this area if they wish to find a professional and positive person to help them."

Doug & Sue - Currumbin Valley

Ken Jacob is highly motivated and dedicated to achieving client satisfaction. He's patient but also very motivating. Above all we found Ken to be totally trustworthy, honest, diligent and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Gerrit te Grotenhuis

After a long search for property with various agents, we first met Ken on a visit to The Eco Village. With an amazingly thorough knowledge of the area and an unmistakable passion for the land and all it has to offer, Ken gently guided us through properties with an honesty and ethical nature rarely seen in real estate. Ken's genuine demeanour was an absolute pleasure to deal with, ensuring our purchase was a joyful experience. I would highly recommend Ken as an agent, a friend or a hiking partner.

Tim & Sarah - The Ecovillage

"Ken worked professionally and diligently in securing a buyer for our valley property. He showed a keen and honest interest in presenting the property to its full potential and took a hands on approach to all phases of the process. "

G O`Shea

I am the proud owner of my home within the Eco village sold to me by Ken Jacob. I have known Ken for some time and found his service and attention exceptional. Ken's knowledge of his particular market eg the Eco village is second to none and his broad list of contacts I am sure helps him to be successful. Ken works hard and nothing is too much trouble. I have a high regard for Ken and would not hesitate to recommend him. My door is always open to him.

Manon B

Ken is passionate about living in this beautiful part of south East Qld. He is a fountain of knowledge about all aspects of living in this area as well as what the community has to offer. Ken takes a personal interest in his clients and in meeting their needs. We found Ken to be very helpful in the purchasing process. He is an honest and authentic person and has become a friend rather than just our real estate agent. He is understanding of people's individual circumstances and works with individuals to help achieve their dreams.

Glenda & Rina - Currumbin Valley

With a thorough appreciation of Southern Gold Coast land and strong negotiation skills, Ken Jacob was of great assistance when it came to the purchase of our property. His attention to detail and follow up was greatly appreciated as was his honesty and ethics.

Katie Barton-Harvey

We first met Ken Jacob 3 years ago during a visit to The Eco Village (Currumbin). At that time, we were in the very early stages of looking for land to build what was to be our next (& we hoped final, home) relocating from Brisbane. We gave Ken a brief outline of what we looking for & he seemed to instinctively pick on what was, at that stage, a very sketchy idea. Ken showed us a block of land that seemed to "tick every box" for us. Ken was quick to understand that we needed to take time to think about & discuss what we had seen. We very much liked his approach to our needs….giving us all the relevant information, but without pushing".

Bill & Sue

Ken is not like any other real estate agent I have met. He listens and is patient. He has the ability to match people to land/house. When looking for a block to buy in the Eco Village at Currumbin , I actually went hiking with Ken to see the surrounding valley and creeks and to meet the community. How often do you get to meet the neighbours before you buy. I am now very happily living in my new house and my door is always open if you are out strolling with Ken and choosing to buy in this community. This community and the people I choose to call my friends are amazing.
