Testimonials

Luke and House 333 made being a first-time home-buyer feel both easy and fun. He and his team were able to answer all of our questions quickly and professionally while navigating a fairly competitive market, and we never felt like there was any doubt that the home we found would be one we could consider a forever home. Not only were we able to find the perfect home in the area we were hoping to move to, but we ended up doing so while coming in under budget thanks to Luke's expertise. Would recommend him to anyone looking to either buy or sell a home in the San Diego area, whether it's your first home or a process you've been through dozens of times. -  Catherine Silverman

I can’t recommend the team of Luke and Todd enough! They helped us purchase our first home in a crazy competitive market. Luke was so patient in helping us find our home and his breadth of knowledge is truly one of a kind in a realtor. He knows the market and I’m not exaggerating at all when I say his negotiation skills seriously can’t be beat. He helped save us quite a bit when negotiating our final offer and he will get the best outcome for you no matter what. Plus, once you do get into your home, he knows all the things about renovations / home improvement and his help in that area is just such an added bonus and hard to find in a realtor. I trust Luke completely and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor who is not only a truly wonderful human being but will also deliver the best results for you no matter what. Thank you so much Luke and Todd! - Lisa Su

Working with house333 and Luke was an absolutely dream. We both bought and sold our home in California with Luke and the entire process was easy and Luke made sure that all of our questions/concerns throughout were always answered promptly and personally. Real estate agents transact all the time but for the buyer/seller it is a huge life moment and Luke always made sure we knew that we were important to him and house333 as people and not just dollar signs. That praise also extends to the entire house333 staff, everyone was warm and welcoming and always ready to jump on a call to quickly get something answered or solved. Selling with house333 was particularly exciting because of their marketing and personal touches which allowed us to get top dollar for our home. We can't recommend Luke and house333 enough! - Bob Wright

Luke is an invaluable broker. He's professional & friendly, extremely responsive and knows everything about his neighborhoods. He was recommended to us by our contact at Chase Bank in North Park and we're so grateful we got to work with Luke! He listens, is patient and so easy to work with. He gave us sound advice and kept it real. The closing process was daunting since it was our first purchase and his team made us feel supported. We would definitely call Luke again! - Zenia Birdie

Luke is friendly, approachable, and endlessly helpful during the home buying process. He’s always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that his clients end up in a place they love that fits all of their needs and most of their wants. As a first-time homebuyer, I felt as though I was in excellent hands. Luke made what should have been an anxiety-inducing process much more manageable than I was expecting. Thanks in large part to Luke, we ended up in a place that we love that was under our budget. - Chris Gere

I was lucky enough to work with Luke as my buying agent when searching for my first home purchase in San Diego. The San Diego market can be extremely competitive for a buyer in my price range and I found this out first hand. Luke was a steady source of knowledge, confidence and an outstanding negotiator. He made himself available whenever I had questions or wanted to view a home. When it came making an offer he always had creative suggestions to help my offer look more enticing. After numerous bidding wars I finally secured an amazing new home that needed just a little work. Luke and Todd were kind enough to put me in touch with the contractor they utilize for their personal projects along with an amazing painter. They really did help provide the full package deal! Luke and Todd were consistent through the closing of my home and made sure to check in after the sale was complete as well! Since my purchase my in-laws and 2 family friends have utilized Luke and Todd as their selling agents if that give you any idea as to how happy everyone has been with them. - Jen Stoike

I have had the pleasure of working with Luke Kensen and House 333 for a over a decade now and can honestly say, Luke takes the profession of being a realtor to a level far beyond any other agent I have ever worked with. The level of professionalism Luke portrays on every transaction exemplifies his ethics and strife to perform his job at a level above the rest. I’m a fond believer communication is the first and foremost key to a successful real estate transaction. Come morning, noon or night, you will always be able to count on Luke for answers to your questions at a moments notice. Whether you are buying/selling your first home or a seasoned professional, Luke will use his unsurpassed knowledge of the market to guide you through the transaction every step of the way! - Chris Naylor

Luke is an incredible agent and human being. We had previously rented through Todd who is also a phenomenal resource. During our search, Luke was the best communicator, full of knowledge and wisdom, and understood our needs as locals and parents of young children. His wonderful sense of humor helped on the wildest of days in this competitive market. We trust him and know he is so well respected in the community which goes a long way when working with other agents and homeowners. It's easy to say we love Luke and Todd professionally and personally. We highly recommend the House 333 team to everyone looking to find the perfect home. - Ellie LaRue

Luke not only sold my home for top dollar, he also sold it furnished.  At the time, we set the high price PSF in the neighborhood. Luke published the home as the center pages of a high end real estate magazine and we had an offer quickly.  My experience with Luke Kensen was 5 star. - Scott Cullens

Luke Kensen is the epitome of everything you could want in a broker; he is well-connected, has in-depth knowledgeable of the local markets, is a skilled listener and negotiator and quick to follow-up. (In fact, he was able to get me a cash offer 24hrs after he listed my property.) His likability is what you want in someone representing your home to others. When I decided to list my property, he became my coach. He immediately researched the comps in the area and presented me with several buying scenarios with how the sale could go. You can always trust that he’s on top of every detail, big and small, which brings great peace of mind in any real estate transaction. He’s also the perfect balance between tough and charming. I would recommend him and his business partner Todd Worthington to anyone, without hesitation. - Denise Pines

Luke and Todd are hands down the best real estate agents in San Diego. Luke came highly recommended from a friend of ours, and when it was time for my family to sell our first home and buy our second, Luke and Todd were a god-send! First of all, the hard work and dedication they put into taking care of their clients is remarkable. I would often receive emails from Luke at the all ends of the night as he would be burning the midnight oil working for us. Secondly, their level of professionalism and expertise is unmatched. The listing they made for our house was beautiful beyond belief (I still go back and look at the listing, it was a work of ar). With their team, they were able to sell our house well over asking price. And when it came down to the purchase of our new house, Luke worked out a steal! As a matter of fact, during the closing process…the appraiser was blown away by the price we actually paid. He couldn’t believe we got it for as low as we did. In the end, Luke and Todd will take care of your every need during your home purchase. They really care about the clients, and it shows. As long as we live in San Diego, we will use House333 for any real estate sale or purchase. - Justin Phillips

Have worked with Luke on several deals now, Luke is tremendous in every way, always quickly responsive, very knowledgeable about real estate, investments, economy, ...so many things. He made a point to take our circumstances and goals in mind and I would recommend him and his team to anyone who is looking into real estate. Luke makes sure to find the right home for YOU and is about relationships not transactions. - Jay Patel

Luke and his team made the daunting process of buying a home in the San Diego area smooth and easy. They walked us through each step of the process so we felt comfortable with what we were doing, and they genuinely cared that we were happy and helping us make decisions that were right for us. There were multiple offers on the house that we wanted to buy and Luke really went to bat for us to make sure we had a competitive offer that ended up being accepted. The inspection process also went super well and the team made sure that we were always involved and aware of each item on the inspection report. When closing came around we were able to go in with confidence and no hiccups which was absolutely amazing. I will always remember getting the keys to our first home and how easy House333 made it seem. My husband and I will always recommend Luke to anyone who is looking because him and his team really do seem like the best. - Bob Scharf

House333 is phenomenal – I was referred to them by a friend and could not be happier with my experience thus far. Luke and Todd are not only experts at what they do, they offer a level of service, convenience, and trust that is top tier and unbeatable. Owning property can be stressful at times and House333 goes above and beyond to ensure both parties are highly enthusiastic (tenants and owners). Transactions are quick and seamless, saving everyone time and money. I couldn’t be more impressed or pleased with House333 – I’ve already passed the recommendation onto the rest of my friends and family. - Jessica Schaff

When we had contemplated about buying a home in San Diego, we met up with a couple of realtors who didn’t have our interest in mind and concentrated more on a sale. Upon meeting up with Luke Kensen/House 333 we got exactly what we needed. Luke found us the perfect house in the area of our choice. From searching through inventory, meeting with us at homes to view, through the uncomplicated close of escrow, and the expertise in his field to answer “honestly” with all our questions and concerns we had about each property is exactly what we found with Luke. We could not have found a better Realtor with more energy in a day to help not just us but other clients as well and still staying focused with our needs. Most importantly, more than just finding us a house, Luke found us a HOME. - Randy Kear

Luke is truly the most amazing realtor I have ever met! I wish I had met him when I first moved to San Diego, when I was looking for my own place. When I first moved to San Diego 5-6 years ago, I went through 3 realtors. From my experience, most realtors are not looking out for their clients' best interest, even though that is what they're supposed to do. Instead they're looking out for their own best interest: making a quick commission. All those 3 realtors did the same thing: every place they showed us, they immediately said "ready to make an offer?"--as if I were buying a shirt that, if I didn't like it very much later, I could just buy another one. As if I weren't about to buy the most expensive purchase of my life! The first time we met Luke, we asked him to show us an apartment because we were looking for an investment property. After he showed us the place, he had no comments about the apartment, but he told us that if we wanted to see other places where he knew would be much better investments, he'd gladly take us around. He asked us if we had time then, and he took us to North Park, and he drove us up and down the streets of North Park, and told us that was the area to invest in. He didn't show us any specific places to sell us. I could then tell how much he loved what he did! He told me he wanted to help me buy a place that would be good for me, so if I ever wanted to live there, I would love it, and it would make me money. He patiently showed us lots of places for over a year, and he never complained that he had showed us too many places and I should just hurry up and make an offer. Instead, many of the places we saw, he told us "I can find you a better house". I have NEVER seen a realtor say that!!! He is the most honest, scrupulous, amazing realtor I have ever met!!! He truly looks out for the best interest of his clients. He treated us like we were his family. He did find me an amazing house, which he also helped remodel. I mean, how many realtors do that for their clients? He has amazing sense of design. He can see a gem hidden in rubble. He's truly amazing! Now I need to talk about the second half of this incredible partnership: Todd. Todd is the yin to Luke's yang. Luke is fast, super energetic, always on the go. Todd is calm, meticulous, methodical, detail oriented. He makes sure that all the horrendous paperwork, deadlines are on time. He's also a property manager, and he manages my property, and he takes such good care of it. He's found really great tenants. He's on top of all the maintenance issues. And he keeps me posted of what's going on with the property and the tenants, without me having to do anything. He's amazing! And he's such a great dad too! I truly don't know how they do all that they do! I just can't say enough good things about them. I can only say I was very lucky to have met them, and to have them as my realtors! - Tsuh Chen

A friend recommended Luke to me and I am so, so happy to have Luke as my realtor. Luke is not only a realtor who will answer your calls (or call you back), & text message you etc. He is also a designer who has that eye for interiors & exteriors. Luke & company, helped me buy my property & Luke gave me the confidence in helping to renovate it. He has contractors, architects, floor people, etc & other contacts in the industry. He provided me with a contractor with who renovated my entire house (gutted it completely). He has an architect who did my design and then we took it from there. You will not easily find this in other realtors. (At least, I have not come across it). Luke gave me the confidence I needed to get started on what appeared to be an overwhelming task and it is because of him, that I have the wonderful house that I have today. He is incredibly dedicated but will not suffocate you. He will provide you with whatever amount of guidance you need, whether it be a lot or a little (for those who don’t require a lot of hand holding. - Bob Menchaca

Luke and Todd make quite a team. Over time I've purchased many homes in varying states and never had I dealt with such highly knowledgeable and professional team. Luke and Todd "heard" our wish list and managed to find us the perfect home for our budget and family needs. Luke was able to negotiate an incredible transaction at a highly competitive market in San Diego. Speaks to his expertise, negotiating skills, and investment knowledge. After Luke "closed" the deal for us Todd took over to make the rest happen. From coordinating inspections, keeping paperwork on time, to assisting in aligning me with the perfect mortgage partner. A truly 5 star real estate team. Would not consider anyone else but the House333 team for any of my real estate needs in the SoCal market. - Helena Suarez

Finally, an agent and his team worth a review. I am not an easy customer! If I send a text, I expect an immediate response. An email? I'll give you half a day. If you're not up to the challenge, don't bother. Also, I need to see as many properties as possible in a short amount of time. We visited more than a dozen condos the first weekend, the same the second weekend. We bought a house instead of a condo because Luke thought: why not! We got a great deal on the house, and could not be happier. Luke responded to all my texts, email, and phone calls in a supersonic time without an ounce of annoyment (that I could detect). He has excellent social skills to meet his customer's needs. If his personality does not fit with your style, no worries, he will step aside and ask for a member of his team to take over while he is in charge of quality control. The best of the best! - Paul Lesnik

Luke made my husband and I feel like family from the first day we met him. He genuinely wanted us to end up in the right home for our growing family. He was super patient, never making us feel rushed during any part of the process. He was honest about homes he did not think were right for us which is a rare quality in an agent. Luke went over and beyond when it came to the negotiation of our home and ended up working so hard to get us a great deal. We love our home so much and our neighborhood - we would not be here without his guidance. We will continue to recommend House333 to all. - Pete Villiger

I bought a condo with Luke as my agent. Luke came highly recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. He is outstanding in all regards. We saw probably around 40 showings and he was always patient with me. Most importantly, he was someone I could trust. He was never pushy with any sale but always offered valuable advice. Luke's negotiation skill also came in very handy. He and his team are extremely responsive. I would use Luke again without hesitation. - Yuhao Lin

Luke and Todd came highly recommended to us from friends and we couldn't have been in better hands. They are true professionals and know the Southern California real estate market extremely well. What sets them apart is how much about their clients and their ability to understand and address any concerns they may have. Luke responds at ALL hours, Todd was here for us if Luke was out of town, and together their knowledge and guidance got us through a very tough purchase process. Go with House333 and know that these guys will help you through it all. HIGHLY recommend! - Kyle Lauterbach

If you want to buy a home, Luke is awesome! He is knowledgeable, he understands the process, zoning, coding, laws, he knows how to read the seller and he takes a very personal approach to guiding the buyer through the process. - Michael Eyerly

Luke & Todd helped my husband and I purchase our home back in Feb 2013 and since then we have stayed in touch! We highly recommend both and our truly thankfull for their expertise, negotiation skills and overall passion for helping us, as we were first time home-buyers and were full of questions. We really appreciated both of their patience with us, and making our experience one of a kind. Once we are ready to buy our next home, we know we will be coming back to both Luke & Todd. They are a team we can trust! - Shari Leiton

We would not be living in our beautiful home without Luke, Todd, and the House333 team. We started the search at the peak of the market and as novices to the San Diego housing market, we often felt like we were in over our heads. That being said, we were serious about buying and ready to put in the time and energy. We started off looking at condos and single unit homes but ended up buying a multi-unit property. In the end, we couldn’t be happier with our choice and the negotiation process. In a fast paced and often stressful environment, Luke and Todd were always one step ahead of us, making sure we had access to new listings, competitive offers, and most importantly, the imagination and experience to help us see how we could make a property our own. They were never pushy, always generous with their time and advice, and honest. As a new home owner and landlord, it is comforting to know that their door is always open and I can call or text whenever I have a question or need a recommendation. House333 is truly a full-service, boutique agency that always has your back. - Yaejoon Kwon

We worked with Luke on the purchase of our first home. He was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we were interested in and gave us his honest opinion about the potential of each property we viewed. I felt like he really understood our taste and what we were looking for. He was extremely responsive, dedicated to his job, and a pleasure to interact with. He made the whole process feel very manageable for a first timer! - Robin Migliorini

We had the pleasure to work with Luke this past year and are now living in our beautiful new home. Luke is clearly “top notch” when it comes to understanding the market, the ins and outs of making appropriately timed and priced offers, and negotiating with the sellers. But much more important to us, was that Luke clearly cared about finding us the right home. He walked us through a slow and, at times, somewhat painful short sale process that took nearly 8 months. Luke was genuinely gitty at the deal we were getting and encouraged us to stick it out for the long hall. When we closed he let us use his contractors (he also flips homes so he has a great sense of home potential and how much it would cost to fix up / upgrade a home if you want to go that route) and even helped us pick out our new paint colors! We recommend Luke and his team without reservation. - Nick Wegner

My husband and I were originally working with a different realtor and have given up on the home buying process. We were actually out looking for a house to rent when we met Todd. He told us about their business and encouraged us to call Luke to set up an appointment. We met with Luke that day, he was extremely attentive to listening what we wanted in a home and neighborhood. We saw houses later that day and the next that matched what we were looking for. We absolutely loved how aggressive Luke was at getting us into the market, we previously had a hard time being competitive when houses were only up for 2-4 days. We found our house a day after we met Luke and even if we didn’t, I know we would have found it with House 333 at a later date. Luke and Todd know this business, their clients and how competitive the market is and they are dedicated to getting you into homes you want to see quickly. Luke sat down with us, went over interest rates and how that would affect the mortgage and how were were going to strategize during negotiation. This is huge for first time home buyers! He was not afraid to negotiate and made us extremely comfortable in submitting an offer. House 333 worked with us on every detail and every concern we had through the entire process; we were always a priority and I know if I needed any advice now, they would be more than willing to offer it! We could not have purchased such a great house in a great neighborhood without Luke and Todd, they are incredible! - Trevor and Christina Monfette

Working with House 333 on our home purchase was the best decision we could have made. As first time home buyers in 2010, we were very inexperienced and needed a lot of guidance during the process. I was amazed at the diligence of our agent Luke as he continued to pursue new options and find us the best home for our budget. From sending emails in the middle of the night to showing us over a dozen houses on our first trip out, he really made sure he worked for us like we were his only client. First time home buyers can be a little all over the place, but his patience and understanding of the market was incredible. He was able to help us through the entire process showing us into our new home in only a matter of weeks. Four years later, we are looking to upgrade and Luke and Todd are on top of everything once again. Luke has already found us a bevy or properties that fit our needs and as we look towards the future of a larger home, we are excited once again to be working with the team at House 333. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new home. You will feel like a VIP client! - Jeff & Lauren Boutin

Luke & Todd are a pleasure to work with!!! We had already made our decision on an agent to sell our home. Luke caught us off guard with his level of preparation and passion for the business! Both Todd and Luke are professional, excellent with quick responses and organized! Best of all we had a quick sale that we believe was because of all their hard work! Will work with them for any future purchases. - Nicole Hartman

Luke is just a pleasure to work with. He is very responsive and detail-oriented. His knowledge of the market, as well as the possible modeling options and cost, is second to none. - User143329

I have bought and sold several properties in my life, but working with House 333 last summer to sell out house was the best decision we could have made! Luke, Todd and their team guided us through the most efficient and successful home sale process I have ever experiences. Our house not only sold in record time, but also above asking price thanks to their knowledge of the market, their strategy and great negotiation skills! The House 333 team was always ahead of the process during the escrow period, which made the entire transaction much easier to deal with. I highly recommend House 333 to represent you whether you are selling or buying…! - Luis Benito

Luke is an amazing realtor who helped me sell my condo in the Southbay, which he completely took all the stress of selling a home away. He is very reliable and always is in touch. Luke always is so helpful and very thorough, did not have one issue with selling my property and also helped me rent out another property in La Jolla. He is very professional and makes the whole process a breeze even though we all know how stressful it can be. I am very thankful so be able to work with him and will continue to work with him in the future! - Rebecca Marruenda

Recently had Luke sell (another) house for me in Desert Hot Springs. Once again our sale price exceeded the list price. This agent is a top notch negotiator with great intuition for the real estate market.  - Nancy Lee

Luke was recommended to us by a friend and we could not have been happier with the process. We were first-time home buyers, which I can imagine is not typically an agent’s favorite type of client. We thought we wanted a newer house in North County but quickly decided the cookie-cutter ee(USER5175503) were not for us. We completely changed our target neighborhood and Luke didn’t even blink an eye. He was extremely courteous and gave his honest opinion when asked but otherwise remained in the background while we reached our own conclusions. Based on the neighborhood we ultimately selected, we knew we would be buying a fixer upper. Luke and Todd have remodeled numerous properties and Luke’s experience and knowledge was invaluable. Luke had rough estimates for every project. And when asked, he also commented on the return-on-investment and desirability of certain projects we were considering. Luke even had his contractor come out on short notice to give us his thoughts on expense and feasibility. Todd was present for the inspection and was of great assistance during the escrow process. They were always professional, supportive and patient. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or a seasoned pro, we would highly recommend Luke and Todd. - Justin Barbosa

We have worked with Todd and Luke for years now, and every experience has been outstanding. As young first time home buyers, coming from out of state they made sure we knew all about the areas we wanted to look for a home, and were great in teaching us about real estate and the home buying process. They made sure we understood every aspect throughout the process and were always listening to our wants and needs to find the best home for us and our future. Later when we chose to sell, they were there again making sure we knew exactly what to do and how to get what we wanted out of the process. Even in between they have been great in sending us referrals for people to help with home improvement projects. They are always available when we reach out with any questions, and make sure we are always taken care of in any way they can. They are very professional, and made us comfortable throughout each interaction. They have really been there for us in a time of need professional or otherwise. - Natalie Todd

If you are needing a Realtor in the San Diego, Los Angeles or Palm Spring areas I'd highly recommend Luke Kensen. Recently I helped my sister move from Texas to San Diego. Luke came highly recommended and now I know why. Having been a Realtor in another state, it didn't take long to recognize his vast knowledge of California real estate. Luke displayed top-notch skills negotiating the purchase of my sister's dream condo. Now Luke is not only my sister's Realtor, he is our friend. - Jean Schoonveld

Luke has extensive knowledge and insight about the San Diego housing market, plus tremendous patient. Over the course of nearly two years, Luke provided me with prospects that met my search criteria (which changed over time), placed numerous very competitive bids, and eventually negotiated and closed the deal on my first home. Luke provides tailored services and the right amount of attention a client requires, he can quickly explain the byzantine paperwork needed to initiate and close escrow, and provides you with enough space to feel comfortable with the life-changing decision you are making. Overall, I am very satisfied with Luke and the services of House333. - Jerry Jacobuska

It was our first time buying a home and I was very nervous because I hate committing to such a big investment. We had some family and friends who do real estate, show us a few places, but they seemed to want to do the least work and expect the most pay. We magically got a referral from a coworker who just bought a home and introduced us to Luke and Todd. They are the most honest and hardworking people ever. They listen to what you want and they make sure they deliver no matter what! They were never pushy, always patient. They helped us purchase our dream home at a good price! Even after purchasing our home, our relationship did not end. If there was a problem or if I had a question, they were always happy to help without hesitation. I've never thought I'd own a home, but they helped make it happen. Thank you. I highly recommend them! I refer them to all my family and friends when they are home shopping! - Lynna Trinh

Luke and Todd came highly recommended to us from friends and we couldn't have been in better hands. They are true professionals and know the Southern California real estate market extremely well. What sets them apart is how much about their clients and their ability to understand and address any concerns they may have.

As a 1st time home buyers my wife & I are forever grateful to Luke, Todd & Jolene at House333. Coming off a rocky home hunt in San Francisco we shifted our sights to San Diego. From the moment we were introduced to Luke it was a white glove experience rooted in TRUST. Luke is an expert in the San Diego real estate market and gave us the lowdown on every neighborhood we were interested in. From our first consultation we could tell he wasn't like other agents simply trying to make a commission, he was different. Highly personable & educational having our best interests in mind. He is a successful real estate investor and not just an agent. We viewed him as more of a real estate life coach. We developed the attributes of our ideal home and Luke setup a custom home search for us. Not just MLS search but a fully branded portal for us to review homes and specify our interest levels. Luke invested his entire day touring properties with us and ensuring we had VIP access at every location. After identifying a property Luke provided guidance and strategy at every turn. Literally 24/7 communication helping us negotiate the most favorable terms. The process was intense but effortless at the same time. Luke was transparent in his communication with the seller's agent and ultimately got us the deal we wanted. Luke stayed involved throughout escrow and introduced us to Todd (House 333's office manager). Together they helped us navigate every step from inspection, financing, home renovations ect. Luke and Todd made this a human experience and not just a transaction. I wouldn't be surprised to see them as stars of their own HGTV show! We cannot THANK them enough and extend our praise & gratitude publicly! - Nate Bourque

I would highly recommend Luke Kensen and 333 House. Luke is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. I appreciated his patience and attention to detail. Together we found the perfect house for me. - Shannon Foley

Luke is a realtor who is in class of his own. When Luke showed up at our first meeting with an prioritized list of interesting homes based on his research and only an email from me with my criteria, I knew he was different. He helped me with research, guided me at each and every step in the home buying process, and help me negotiate a great price for my home. But Luke didn’t stop there, he single-handedly redesigned my remodel (including the addition of 2 bathrooms), got me great prices for my materials, and saw to it the remodel was completed with care. Now he and Todd will be my property managers as well because there’s no one I trust more. Not only did house333 provide an exceptional and extremely unique service, I now think of both Luke and Todd as my close friends. - Tracy Zhao

After spending a Saturday looking at potential homes with Luke Kensen, I knew I had not only found a realtor, but also a good friend. He is so knowledgeable about the real estate business and made sure that I had a good grasp of the local market and assisted me in every step of the buying process. Especially helpful was the fact that Luke was readily available by phone or email, whenever I had a question. Mr. Kensen knew that I was anxious about the whole home-buying process. He was a calming influence, and showed an immense amount of patience, positive attitude and kindness when I would call regularly to gain updates on the progression of the purchase. I can’t recommend him highly enough, whether you are planning to sale or purchase a home; he is truly devoted and quite good at what he does. - Gary Huhn

I have worked with Luke as a first time home buyer, and first time home seller as well. Luke took his time to make sure I was educated on the process, and I always felt like he had my best interest in mind. After my experience with buying my first home, when I was going to sell that home there was no question in my mind I would use Luke. Not only is he approachable, responsive, and friendly- I always felt like he genuinely cared for me. He also always made sure I got the most for my money! He even got the solar panels on my first home paid for by the seller! I would recommend him to any of my friends or family. - Erin Long

Prior to selling our house, Luke and Todd were our property managers. For years they managed our rental assuring that the property was maintained and renting at fair market value for us and our tenants. When it came time to sell, Luke and Todd were our agents and once again, they assured the property sold at the top of the market. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Luke and Todd as property managers or real estate agents. Thank you!!! - Melissa Ottem

Luke and Todd and have done some amazing work for our family, from property management, to selling our beloved family home (of 60 years). The care, sensitivity and hard work was beyond reproach. They continue to work on properties our parents had acquired over time and the same due diligence has been demonstrated despite the lesser value. I can not say enough good things about their agency. I love these guys and you will too! - Regina Ottem

I was 20 years old when Luke helped me buy my first home. You can only imagine all the questions and concerns I had. Luke offered excellent advice, answered every question, and helped me make informed decisions. Before helping me by my home a year before he also helped my sister and father. I highly recommend Luke and his team at House 333. He has become our family’s relator and I am always recommending him to other friends and family. Thank you again Luke. - Jessica Barrow

Luke, Todd and their team provide top-notch service. They are the insanely quick in responding to emails and phone calls, and are professional in all communications. They have a deep understanding of the housing market and neighborhoods in San Diego. We had to move to San Diego quickly for a job. Luke and Todd helped make the transition easy and seamless. When we committed to purchasing a house, Luke sat down with my wife and I, and explained a variety of options to ensure we got the house we wanted in the price range we desired. Beyond being terrific at their jobs and helping us as first-time homebuyers navigate the confusing process, Luke and his team were enjoyable to work with. They made the home search fun and provided valuable advice throughout the process. We’re thankful to have found Luke and Todd for our house search. We love our house and neighborhood, and we plan on sticking with Luke and Todd for all of our future real estate needs. - Greg Marsh

When we moved to San Diego we weren't familiar with the area. After talking to Luke about the type of house and neighborhood we wanted, he knew exactly what to show us! We only needed s a single afternoon looking at a handful of houses before we found our home. The whole process was painless (and his expert negotiation got us a bargain)! Additionally, we wanted a fixer upper and he also helped with the remodel! When we had to move for work, he also sold our house. He gave us sound advice and we sold quickly for great price! Even though we were across the country, he took care of everything and made it very easy for us. There isn't anyone else I would rather work with in the area! - Mike Langland

 

I was lucky enough to work with Luke as my buying agent when searching for my first home purchase in San Diego. The San Diego market can be extremely competitive for a buyer in my price range and I found this out first hand. Luke was a steady source of knowledge, confidence and an outstanding negotiator. He made himself available whenever I had questions or wanted to view a home. When it came to making an offer he always had creative suggestions to help my offer look more enticing. After numerous bidding wars I finally secured an amazing new home that needed just a little work. Luke and Todd were kind enough to put me in touch with the contractor they utilize for their personal projects along with an amazing painter. They really did help provide the full package deal! Luke and Todd were consistent through the closing of my home and made sure to check in after the sale was complete as well! Since my purchase my in-laws and 2 family friends have utilized Luke and Todd as their selling agents if that give you any idea as to how happy everyone has been with them. - USER zuser20160409200122330

Luke and House333 was the greatest part of the most exciting time of our lives. Always accessible and catering to our requests are just a few of the characteristics that make him and his business so amazing. He will go through any hurdle placed in front of your Home buying. I recommend to everyone I know! Thanks for everything!!! - Ben, Melinda and Thomas Kramer

We work with Luke, and his team to purchase our first multi-unit property in San Diego a couple of years ago and really can’t say enough good things about them. He is knowledgeable, personable, approachable, endlessly patient. Right away Luke was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with us to determine what would be a good fit for us. Luke did a fantastic job of finding out what we wanted and setting up a customized search for us. Luke is clearly the expert when it comes to understanding the market, priced the offers and negotiating with the sellers. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Luke and Todd made it as painless and straightforward as possible. In the end, we couldn't be happier with our choice and the negotiation process. Bottom line – I can’t imagine having a more positive experience and recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to buy in this stressful market. - Joanne Wong

It is a pleasure to work with Luke and Todd. They listen carefully and then ensure that the search is right for you. I appreciated their patience, and willingness to keep looking until that right house came along. They are making my move to San Diego much simpler than I anticipated. Plus, they are just genuinely nice guys. - Ann Allison

Knowledge, insight and experience: Luke and his excellent team handled both a sale and a purchase for me in markets both volatile and sophisticated. Both transactions, years apart, proceeded smoothly and professionally. Always responsive and informative . . . and there for me. - Elaine Rockett

Luke and Todd were incredible to work with. As first-time homebuyers, they patiently and efficiently walked my husband and I through every step of the way. Luke was extremely responsive and proactive when we wanted to view homes and decided to make offers. He did an incredible job of negotiating and I believe, because of his skills and efficiency, we avoided a bidding war and had our offer quickly accepted on the home we now own. The escrow process was very short and efficient as well. They are very knowledgeable of the San Diego market and well connected. They not only helped us with viewing, making offers, and purchasing our home but helped answer questions we had about being first-time landlords. When you work with Luke and Todd, you know you are in good hands! We will definitely be using them again for our future home purchases. - Carlos Gomez

We began working with Luke back in I want to say 2013/2014. I was a law student then and we were on one income. So while we were looking we were very conservative with the price point we needed to stay at. My husband and I really appreciated that Luke never once pressured us into making an offer or looking more aggressively. We looked for a home for about 3 years. During that time we would look and then take breaks. Luke was always willing to show us the house we saw driving down the street or a home he thought fit our list of must haves. We kept getting turned down because we did not budge on our budget. It was frustrating but Luke always put it into perspective and reassured us we were doing the right thing by sticking to our budget. Finally in July of 2017 we found it, our home, we didn’t think anything of it. Luke wrote the offer, we were countered, nothing different we had been there many many times before. But then we countered back and it was verbally accepted. Like a whirlwind we went into escrow and on August 28, 2017, my husband and I became first time home owners. I do not think we would have had such a smooth experience lasting for so long if Luke hadn’t always gone above and beyond. Needless to say, Todd is freaking awesome too! He held our hands, mine mainly, through escrow, which is a nightmare. But all in all I know we will continue to work with Luke and Todd and House 333 any time we have a real estate need. You should not hesitate either! - Karen Barragan

Luke was nothing short of awesome! We called him last minute and he jumped onto our case immediately. He was honest with us, guided us, helped us to decide when to take a risk and offered his thoughts on calculating the risks. He informed us what delays might indicate and guided us to take extra measures which in the end got us our house below the asking price. He calmed our fears and responded to our many calls and text messages. He was amazing and I would absolutely use him again... and again. - Michael Yablonsky

Luke helped me buy my first place back in 2012, and I wanted to post a quick review of my experience. Since buying then I've used his company at times for property management, and have been consistently impressed with him and his partner Todd over the years. Luke was absolutely great working with me in my home buying process and I couldn't be happier with the place I finally ended up in. It took nearly 5 months of searching, but throughout the process he was both generous with his time and patient with walking me through the process as a first time home buyer. His knowledge of the area I was targeting (North Park/ South Park) was unparalleled as he has a block by block knowledge of these neighborhoods and the selling agents within them. I would highly recommend him to my friends, and I would definitely plan on working with him again-- the only problem is I don't expect to need a new place anytime soon. - Brent Reitherman

I would absolutely recommend Luke and his House333 team! Luke has his finger on the pulse of the market, especially in the highly desirable areas around North Park. We bought a fixer upper and could trust Luke to get us the very best price, and provide some helpful suggestions for remodel. He's truly a master of all things related to home buying and I would trust him again without hesitation for our next home purchase! - Gina Mangine

Luke and Todd are more than we could've asked for as realtors. They gave us excellent guidance, tenacious availability, and deep knowledge about a wide range of homes in our area. They listened to what we wanted and found creative ways to meet our needs with properties we never would've thought as options until they showed us. Particular high points were helping us extricate ourselves from a seller who ended up behaving in a sketchy manner after we’d made an offer, and in helping us find ways to make competitive offers in a market where we were regularly outbid by many tens of thousands over the asking prices. They also have a strong network and knew how to leverage it throughout the buying process to get the best deal possible for us. Whether getting a good rate on the mortgage loan, doing the home inspection or planning remodeling and repairs, they always had someone available to get the job done, and done well. I hope we’re in our new home for a long time, but if we were to move, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again. They have our highest recommendation and you'd be crazy not to work with them. - Samantha Howell

I was a first time home buyer and was buying on my own so everything about the real estate process was new to me. Luke came highly recommended so I already had high expectations, but he quickly blew those out of the water. I am in sales and have been all my life so I already have a high "salesman" radar so doing any sort of transaction of this nature makes me cautious. With that being said, not at a single point in the entire 3-5 month relationship I had with Luke prior to my first buy did I feel pressured into anything. Every place we looked at he sat back, listened, and only answered questions when I asked. Not once did he make any notion that I should lean in one purchasing direction over another. I had worked with another agent prior to Luke and the difference is uncanny. Luke's knowledge about the business, the market, the transaction, etc. is unmatched. The best thing about Luke is when we would go place to place he would tell me what was good about the place, what was bad, what needed to be fixed, what I could get away with not fixing, how much things would cost, the list goes on and on. He was even emailing me comps on other comparable properties at 3 a.m. one evening. To be completely honest, I could talk about Luke's professionalism and skill set for days. Even after our deal was done, he continues to be at my beckon call whenever I have questions or concerns. This will definitely be a long standing business relationship. I would easily refer Luke out to anyone who needs a real estate agent without a second doubt. Luke is incredible at what he does and made this frustrating process easier than I could have ever imagined. Like I said, I could go on and on.... - Jason Belthoff

Luke is a great Real Estate Agent. Not only himself but his entire team at House333. We loved working with Luke because this was our first home and it can be very stressful to buy a house without knowing how to negotiate, all the legal documents, and what to do at the right time. He worked around the clock to make sure that we had exactly what we wanted. He was always willing to give us opinions and share his expertise. We will continue to work with Luke and hopefully purchase more homes in the future. Luke is an amazing agent who will look out for you and your interests. He is very responsive and always willing to help. If you are nervous Luke will take care of you and make you understand anything you need to know. At times I am sure we would ask the same questions, or ask for clarification and he was never annoyed or bothered but rather would seek to clarify our confusion. Do not hesitate to work with him, you will have an amazing time and he will be the same from day one. It took us about a year to find a home and with the market being really competitive we never actually thought we would have a home and now we own a duplex thanks to Luke. Lots of offers were made and ours was taken due to the quickness and response of Luke. - Berkeley Gomez

My wife and I decided to travel locally from Los Angeles to San Diego for our 2 weeks of holiday. While visiting, we fell in love with the area of North Park and decided to make a pit stop to a local boutique real estate office, House333. We were curious at the time to simply inquire the possibility of acquiring an income property (house or condo) and its costs. Then, ended up touring the town in their electric golf car with Luke Kensen, which was a one of a kind experience. Luke’s knowledge and education of a 2-4 unit property was impeccable. He walked us through the calculated income potential, expenses and most important, positive cash flow had reflected that it was a better avenue vs. a condo/house. We then ended back in town the following 2 weekends to house hunt and we were in contract on a duplex by day 17. With minimal upgrades on one and a bit more on the other unit, House333 now contains a premium rental income for us. We are delighted to own a piece of North Park which will also allow us to eventually retire here. Since then, we are tempted to repeat this again in about 6-9 months. Luke and his team will handhold you even though you had the experience of buying. We really lucked out in that he would give us both the pros & cons of each property. His commitment to deliver what is truly our needs and even took the time to remind us we can reject a property if there are certain parameters missing. He always advises that there will be others or that the right property is out there and to have patience. We are delightfully thankful to have crossed paths with Luke. - Theresa Chang

We discovered Luke at an open house over two years ago, and we are so grateful that we did. Luke was key to my husband and I becoming familiar with the San Diego market, and always had our priorities top of mind. And, surprisingly for a real estate agent, supported our decision to bow out of the market at that time. With a husband in the military, things tend to shift around a bit. At the end of this year, we'll find out if we get another set of orders in SD, so naturally were planning to turn to Luke for assistance. In an unexpected turn of events, we learned that we aren't able to renew our lease at our current rental property, and in a mad panic I reached out to Luke for help. In less than 2 business days, Luke had lined up a month to month rental property for my family (key if we are going to buy at the end of the year!). Not only is the house in highly desirable North Park, but our work commutes don't change AND it has a fenced in backyard for our pup! I couldn't be more pleased with the House333 service - Luke and his team are quick to respond and always on the ball. If we are staying in SD long term (fingers crossed), we'll definitely look to buy, and we'll definitely work with Luke! - Haley Feazell

Luke has been our agent on 4-5 transactions now, and hands down no one does real estate better than him! The level of professionalism Luke portrays on every transaction exemplifies his ethics and strife to perform his job at a level above the rest. I’m a fond believer communication is the first and foremost key to a successful real estate transaction. Come morning, noon or night, you will always be able to count on Luke for answers to your questions at a moments notice. Whether you are buying/selling your first home or a seasoned professional, Luke will use his unsurpassed knowledge of the market to guide you through the transaction every step of the way! If you use any other realtor besides Luke Kensen, you are really doing yourself a dis-service! - MaryAnne Naylor

Luke and his team at house333 are professionals in their field. I have worked with them on all my sells and purchases in the past 3 years. Luke is my go to person when I need anything in real estate. Luke works hard for you. He is an expert negotiator and excellent at sealing the deal. Great at what he does and an outstanding human being. - June Nguyen

Luke was greatly beneficial in selling my condo for the best price. He was confident and achieved the goal of selling the condo even with substantial challenges. He was able to deal with each issue and resolve them without impacting me. - Keith Homeszyn

I worked with Luke in 2010 to find a house. My needs and desires were very specific and my budget was tight. The real-estate market was super competitive, and I was losing faith that I would ever score a property. In fact, I had really given up. Luke was calm and professional throughout. He never stopped looking for and presenting properties that fit my criteria. He was incredibly encouraging and confident and ultimately he found my property after I had stopped looking. It was and still is the perfect house for me. He really understood what I was looking for and was patient when I was not. Over the years Luke has proven himself to be more than a realtor. He has great advice in all areas of real-estate, from financing to fixing the toilets. Luke has counseled me and guided me with contractors, workers, design and city bureaucracy and he never fails to know what he is talking about. He is professional beyond measure. - Tim Hunt

Our experience with Luke at house333 has been exceptional! We have used him to sell two different houses and would use him again with no reservations. He and his office staff are highly responsive and professional. He walked us through the process efficiently and made great recommendations about what make sense for pricing, suggested reasonable updates to make on the property to make it sell it better (and worked with what was there if we didn’t want to do the updates), and managing it all on our schedule. He managed the showings in a way that was minimally disruptful and worked with our young children. His positive energy and enthusiasm really helped keep us grounded during the sale and he got us the price we wanted! I would highly recommend Luke and house333! - Stephanie Pond

We have purchased a great home in Pacific Beach, San Diego in November of 2011. It has been the perfect house for our family. Luke is very professional, patient and listens to what we want and will search the real estate inventory to get exactly what we needed. Very happy with Luke and how easy it was during closing as well. Will recommend Luke Kensen to anyone who ask who is a dedicated, friendly Realtor who will find a place for you with your interest in mind. Our family always talk about how he found the best place for us. - Jasmine Kear

Luke handled my condo purchase ‘long distance’ from start to finish while I was concluding affairs in Florida. My trust was well placed – he anticipated nee-Dennisds and kept me updated throughout the entire process. When we entered the renovation stage of the purchase, Luke even acted as a ‘chauffeur’ by driving me to Lowe’s, Home Depot, etc., and even volunteered to push me in a wheelchair because I was experiencing some orthopedic problems. Luke’s hallmarks are integrity, reliability, punctuality, and just a plain likeable guy! - Dennis Mackey

I was a very nervous first time home buyer. I am forever grateful to Luke for taking me by the hand and patiently walking me step by step from the very beginning to the very end of my condo purchase. Luke took care of every single detail of my condo purchase. He made the entire process extremely easy, convenient and stress free for me. I absolutely loved Luke’s professional, upbeat, positive, optimistic, can do it, and will do it attitude during my entire condo purchase process. Whenever I contacted Luke with a question, concern or request about my condo purchase, he always responded to me within an hour or less. When some unexpected issues came up during my condo purchase process, Luke said to me, “no problem” and that he would take care of everything. And he did take care of everything. Luke is an extremely knowledgeable and successful real estate professional. My overall experience with Luke was amazing and wonderful! I am a completely satisfied client. I joyfully, willingly and enthusiastically recommend Luke for all your real estate needs. - Rich Fetzer
