I saw a listing on Zillow for a condo in Wilton Manors and I called the agent. AJ Rivera answered the phone. From that point, we built a relationship that resulted in my listing my current home with him and the VKR Team, but also buying a condo with him in Wilton Manors – all in about 9 weeks. If you ever were or are on the fence about using a realtor to either buy or sell, trust me, if you work with this team, specifically AJ Rivera, it will change your life!

I had the pleasure of working with Steve & Ken on a couple of real estate transactions in the last few years. Great market knowledge, total attention to detail and always ready with solid advice whenever it was needed. I always knew they where on my side through the entire process, often going the extra mile (or two)!

Steve & Ken worked patiently and diligently through all deadlines, always staying steps ahead of changing circumstances, and all the while anticipating the challenges, opportunities and the unique requirements of the south Florida real estate market. Definitely signs of seasoned real estate professionals. These guys really know what they are doing. I could not have been happier with their efforts. In each case they helped me through both the sale and the purchase of the perfect home.

Their full service team expertly marketed the sale of my house, providing extremely professional promotional and sales media, helped me figure out my move with relocation services and ushered in the sale by representing me during the settlement that I was unable to attend. Steve & Ken followed up at each step in the process to ensure a smooth transition both into and out of the South Florida region.

Without reservation or hesitation I can highly recommend Steve & Ken to my friends and family who might need a Realtor in the future. And I look forward to connecting with them again the next time I am looking to purchase real estate in the South Florida area. Thanks guys!

I just wanted to take a moment to say how happy I am and thankful that I reached out to Ken Krukowski and Steve Visano when I was looking to relocate to Fort Lauderdale from Chicago.  Bottom line:  They are awesome.  When I got the final job offer, I had 45 days to facilitate the move and my first move was to look for a realtor.  Knowing the Castelli name from my many years of vacationing in Lauderdale, I checked their website and came across the profiles of Ken and Steve.  I initially felt connected because they had previously worked in the real estate market in Chicago and have since been working in this area.  In reaching out, I spoke with Ken and I immediately felt comfortable and he really listened to what I was looking for and had an online search set up for me by the end of the day.  Even though I was familiar with all of the areas that I would be looking at, I really appreciated Ken & Steve’s knowledge of the market and their honesty about properties I was interested in – many of the properties they were already familiar with and they really researched the individual homes and, while not dissuading me from looking at a specific home, gave honest assessments as to whether or not they felt the property would meet what I was looking for   Being on a limited time frame, I needed to come down the following weekend to look and Ken and Steve cleared their schedule for me and dedicated themselves to my search.  The whirlwind weekend of property viewing couldn’t have been more organized and fun – not only do they know the markets and are highly organized, they are easy to work with and great guys whom I can truly call friends now.  Within the next day and revisiting a few properties that I had looked at the day before, I was ready to make an offer.  Steve and Ken had everything set up and did a detailed analysis of the market and the area and based on all relevant factors, advised that I make a much lower offer price than the asking price.  Again they were right on the money and the price negotiated was much better than I had expected (I had to come back in late that night to sign the counter, but they were adamant that I did because they wanted to get the deal closed that night – glad I did because the seller received multiple offers the following day 🙂 ).  All through the closing process, they were both fully engaged and worked to make the deal close smoothly.  With being new to the area they had an amazing network of professionals from attorneys and insurance agents to pool and landscape professionals and were always willing to help out with any questions that I had.  Also, as an added benefit, when working with Ken & Steve, you get the dedicated attention and expertise of two full-time professional agents.  I absolutely made the right decision in reaching out to them and I can not recommend Ken and Steve highly enough to handle your South Florida real estate needs.

It’s been a pleasure working with Steve and Ken on multiple transactions. They are both diligent, patient, professional and knowledgeable and guided me to make the right decisions in choosing an amazing new home! It was especially important to me that we collaborated before, during and after the sale to make certain I was satisfied with the outcome!

After my client, who resides in Ohio, was appointed to act as Personal Representative of his nephew’s estate, he retained Steve Visano of Castelli Real Estate to sell his nephew’s Broward County home. Not only did Steve Visano sell his home quickly and at a fair price, Steve also went above and beyond the call of duty by arranging to sell the contents of the home, as well as the nephews car. My client never had to make a trip to Florida. I will definitely hire Steve Visano again if I need assistance selling real estate in South Florida. Thanks again, Steve, for a job well done!

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Ken Krukowski and Steve Visano as a real estate agents for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation . They managed the sale of our rental property located in Wilton Manors. They were very professional and very helpful to deal with all the issues that we had until we sold the property. They provided excellent market information, outsanding service and get support. They also have great communication skils and help us to show the place several times. A master with the contract negotiations, they came up with a deal that was good for us and made the buyer happy as well. Throughout this home selling process, they also managed to sell our townhouse for an excellent price, especially in the current market situation. They know Wilton Manors like the back of their hand. There is nothing that escapes Ken and Steve attention when it comes to property for sale in this area.

We are pleased to recommend Ken and Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They are hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to sell again they will be our first choice in real estate agents.
