We recently moved back to the Pacific Northwest after being out of towners for 15 years. Kyle and his team were recommended to us and they brought an amazing amount of professionalism, knowledge, agility and communication to the home buying process. Kyle was dealt a very green mortgage consultant to work with and he held the person's feet to the fire to get us to close. He was amazing every step of the way. A lesser person would have given up and moved on. He is committed to his clients and listens with understanding to their needs and wants. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking to purchase or sell real estate in the Portland area. Less ... More

Kyle did a fantastic job with the sale of our condo. He was very quick to respond when we had questions, and kept us updated regularly on not only when there were showings but also gave us feedback from the buyers' brokers. When an offer did come in, he helped us analyze whether or not it was a fair price and helped make the case for our higher counteroffer to the buyers' broker. This was a very smooth transaction, and Kyle is a consummate professional. I would highly recommend working with him! Less ... More

I can't imagine a better Realtor that Kyle Ball. We were blessed to have been referred to him. We were able to find a house pretty quickly but once we got in contract, our lender made thing difficult at every step and put us through agony all the way through. Kyle was masterful in navigating the mess that our lender made and was always cool headed and extremely professional. I would (and will) HIGHLY recommend Kyle to anyone who asks!

Kyle exceeded our expectations in every way. Kyle negotiated on our behalf such that we recieved the full asking price for our home, and the entire process was managed with such knowledge and efficiency that from listing to final close date was roughly six weeks. This was far faster than I expected. It was also far easier. Kyle regularly communicated status and questions throughout the process, but he also handled as much as possible independently, such as quickly coordinating all the required bids and repairs after first seeking our approval to proceed. The entire process was remarkably quick and low-stress because so much was handled proactively by Kyle and his strong professional network. Less ... More

Being that this home purchase was my wife and mines first, we had numerous questions and Kyle was always there to answer them promptly and respectfully. I was very impressed with his knowledge of each step of the home buying process. I felt secure in having him in my corner during the pricing negotiations that ultimately landed us the home of our dreams. I know Kyle gets the majority of his work through word of mouth and now I know why. I'm more than happy to recommend Kyle to anyone looking to purchase a home or property and he's definitely going to be representing us on our next one. I look forward to working with him. Less ...

We would hire Kyle again for many reasons. He is thorough, professional, prompt and always responded to our emails and returned phone calls in a timely manner. He is very knowledgeable about many different areas in and around Portland, and the processes of buying and selling a home. We worked with Kyle for over 2 years until we finally found the home of our dreams. He was very patient throughout the entire experience as we figured out what we really wanted in a home (it evolved over time). He never made us feel like we were wasting his time, he was happy to show us everything we requested to see, he helped us write many offers that didn't work out, and never once had a bad attitude. He is consistent, positive, encouraging and never pushy. He is a great realtor! Less ... More

My wife and I looked for two years at dozens of unique homes in the high end market, we put in multiple offers, after two years of patience and professionalism, Kyle found the house of my wife's dreams! Kyle is professional, follows up, and listens to his buyer. I had a 10/10 buyers experience and we made him earn his commission. Kyle is bright, caring, and really gave us great advice along the way. Feel confident if you hire Kyle to help you. We give him our highest marks. Steve and Kathy

Part 1: Kyle sold our home for asking price and helped us with everything from staging to title! The process of selling our home was enjoyable and fast. Kyle and his team are the best! Part 2: Kyle put my family into our dream home! We cannot express enough how grateful we are to Kyle and his team. Kyle listened to our needs, found us the perfect home and then guided us through the process of closing on the home. Kyle was always there to answer our questions and educate us on the home buying process. Kyle's expertise in the selling and buying of our homes made all the difference in the world.

Working with Kyle made all the difference in our experience of selling our home. Having bought and sold homes in the past, we had felt pretty prepared for the ups and downs of the process, but I think underestimated the stress and ambiguity that occurs in selling a home while trying to buy another. Kyle was unfailingly responsive and provided solid direction during this successful process.

Listed home, but didn't sell
Having been around the real estate industry the better part of my adult life, (both my father and brother-in-law owned appraisal offices; and I finished real estate and appraisal school), I was skeptically hesitant of any broker, especially a young go-getter like Kyle. After meeting with him though, his calm demeanor and commitment to service showed right away; without question, he knows the business he services! Although the price of our house was out of market range, and did not provide him with a sale, he was pleasant and positive when we pulled our home from the market, deciding to stay where we are. I would personally recommend him to any friends, or those that have questions about real estate. His knowledge of the business far exceeded my expectations; without hesitation I would go to him again, when market conditions improve. Thank you, Kyle. Less ... More

Kyle went the extra mile to help us, first time buyers, through the hoops of this process. What most impressed me and my wife was the attention to detail in finding exactly what fit our taste and budget, and the fact that after the sale he was ready and willing to help us with the details of moving in and getting utilities up and running. He and his family are joining us for dinner at the new place. That in itself should speak volumes.

Kyle helped with the short sale of my house, which was in foreclosure. As you can imagine, it's a stressful thing to do and very emotional. On top of that it was not a simple process; however, Kyle is an expert! He did a stellar job. The house went on the market in Nov of 2011, and happily we secured 3 very good offers within a couple weeks! It looked like there might be some competitive bidding. Then the real work began. There were so many negotiations with the mortgage companies, problems with how the title had been filed, etc... the buyers dropped off one by one... but Kyle kept the last buyer interested until the bitter end. The sale finally closed in July of 2012. It was grueling. But Kyle and his colleague did it! I am grateful I found Kyle right when I needed him. He is kind and friendly and responsive and patient. All the things you need in a good agent! I recommend him highly. Less ... More

Working with Kyle was a great experience. In the market today, there is such a low inventory of homes in the search category we were looking at. Kyle made us feel like it was a priority to him to find us exactly what we wanted. He never made us wait long periods of time to hear back from him. We would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

I cannot explain how wonderful he was through the whole process. He made everything so easy! We put our home up for sale and within 5 days we had 4 offers on the home.The short sale only took 3 months!

Kyle's ability to stay calm during tough negotiations is his biggest asset. He never lost his cool during the sale of our house that literally almost fell through multiple times due to lender issues. Although he was as frustrated as ourselves, he continued forward until we all signed on the dotted line.

Helped me buy home
I have only lived in Gresham for a year & a half now so one of my requirements of a realtor was that they be familiar with the area so that I wouldn?t purchase a home in a neighborhood that as a single female I wouldn?t feel safe in. I would send Kyle properties that looked of interest & on more than one occasion he would say ?nope?you?re not going to live there?. Being new to the area, I really appreciated his honestly with each of the properties that we saw; it made me feel that he really did have my best interest in mind wasn?t interested in an easy sale. Buying a house in this current market was a process to say the least. The days of viewing a house & being able to ?sleep on it? before making a decision are gone. Homes are gone within a day or two which means that as the buyer I was checking real estate listings up to 3 times a day. Once I saw the house listed I was able to email Kyle & because of his quick response time we were able to see the house that day. Knowing that the house would go quick, Kyle re-arranged his schedule to make it happen & we were able to place an offer that next morning, by that early afternoon we heard that there were multiple offers on the property & the bidding war began. Kyle walked me through the entire process & was very patient with me when I asked multiple questions. As a first time home buyer Kyle did an excellent job being the bridge between the lender & myself. With his mortgage background he was able to explain the documents that the lender would send & walk me through each line item of what I was signing. He stayed in great communication with lender & kept me in the loop at every point. Kyle made buying a house seamless & I would highly recommend he to friends and family. Less ... More

Kyle Ball was fantastic in helping me find the right home at the best price. He assisted in making sure I had the right price to win the home in a bid war with 2 other offers being submitted at the same time. He has stayed on top of everyone involved to make sure the house closed on the day I needed to help me move in as soon as possible. I would recommend Kyle to anyone for assistance in buying or selling a home. He is very professional and he even met me very late one evening to look at a house that I did end up purchasing.

Kyle helped my husband and I short sell our home. He took initiative when appropriate and followed through on a personal level that is often lacking in his profession. Through every hoop, denial, and roadblock that our Lender challenged us with, Kyle was there with an interpretation, a recommendation, and a positive outlook. When we thought we were at a dead end (several times) Kyle called on his resources to accomplish the sale. Many of our friends who are going through a similar experience have asked us how we were finally able to complete our sale and get off of the "Lender Rollercoaster." Our answer..."Call Kyle!"

I met Kyle through an internet search for properties. Although I had gone to many sites and agents, he was the only one that provided me with notices of properties available to me on a consistent basis and with no pressure to meet with him. I know that as an independent business owner myself this takes time to respond to clients in a timely and consistent manner. Although I had not met him, when I found the home I wanted, I only thought of him to call. Many realtors are out there but he was different. I called him and said I want you to meet me at this home I would like to own and be my agent. All through the deal he was polite, and professional. The most impressive thing however was not only his knowledge but his ethics. We had a situation where ethics played a major role, and although I was ready to give up on a dream home....he hung in there for me and did the right thing. The mortgage broker also thought he was one of the best agents to work with. I will never want to work with another realtor. There are good people in the world and Kyle is one of them. Less ... More
