KC Magazine Names Ken Jansen as Best in Client Satisfaction for 4th consecutive year.

FIVE STAR: Best in Client Satisfaction Real Estate Agents (SM) Announced

Posted: July 10, 2008

Kansas City, MO (July 10, 2008) – In the July 2008 issue of KC Magazine, the 2008 FIVE STAR: Best in Client Satisfaction Real Estate Agents (SM) are announced. Ken Jansen, a Broker Associate with Keller Williams Realty Partners, Inc. Overland Park, Kansas, was selected for the 4th consecutive year.

KC Magazine formed a partnership with Crescendo Business Services, an independent research firm, to identify the “best in client satisfaction” real estate agents serving the Kansas City area. In December of 2007, Crescendo surveyed by mail and phone 19,500 Kansas City area residents who had recently purchased homes and 2,500 subscribers of KC Magazine. An additional 250 surveys were sent to mortgage and title companies, who are often best able to judge a real estate agent’s technical skills and knowledge.

On the surveys, recipients were asked to evaluate only real estate agents whom they knew through personal experience. They were asked to evaluate them based upon nine criteria, including, customer service, integrity, market knowledge, communication, negotiation, closing preparation, finding the right home, marketing of the home and overall satisfaction.

By January, stacks of surveys had arrived and Crescendo began carefully scoring and screening each nominee with both the Kansas and Missouri State Real Estate Commissions’ database to make certain that licenses were up to date and that no disciplinary actions were pending. Before finalizing the list, nominated agents were reviewed by a blue ribbon panel of local industry experts.

The panel consisted of realty company executives, professional and trade association officers and others directly involved in housing-related businesses. Although panelists’ comments were incorporated into the final score, safeguards were built into the review process to reduce the ability of panel members to influence the composition of the final list on the basis of company affiliation.

This year’s list of “FIVE STAR: Best in Client Satisfaction” real estate agents represents less than 6 percent of actively licensed real estate agents in the Kansas City area. We hope this list serves as a referral network for the 90,000 readers of KC Magazine. Is this list exhaustive? Of course not. There are undoubtedly many other excellent real estate agents that are not on the list this year, but don’t be surprised to see them next year.

As with any research or recognition program, it is important that we provide you the following declarations: The 2008 FIVE STAR Real Estate Agents do not pay a fee to be included in the research or the final list of FIVE STAR Best in Client Satisfaction Real Estate Agents. The overall evaluation score of a real estate agent reflects an average of all respondents and may not be representative of any one client’s evaluation.
