HOMES FOR SALE
LETTERS FROM KEN'S CUSTOMERS
SERVING BUYERS AND SELLERS IN DALLAS, TEXAS
Ken Lampton has served homebuyers and home sellers in Dallas, Texas, since 1985. His primary markets are the close-in areas between downtown Dallas and the "northern loop" of LBJ Freeway (I-635). Most of these neighborhoods contain homes constructed between 1900 and 1975, but there are also a substantial number of new infill homes being built.
AN M-STREET/LAKEWOOD SPECIALIST
Ken lives in a 1928 Tudor Cottage in the M-Street Area, and much of his business is concentrated in the M-Street/Lakewood neighborhoods, in Old East Dallas, in Lake Highlands, and in such East Dallas neighborhoods as Lochwood, Casa Linda, and Forest Hills.
MORE THAN A SALESMAN
Ken believes buyers and sellers in the Twenty-First Century have the right to expect real estate agents to be much more than mere "salesmen." He offers his clients reliable consultation, marketing know-how, and powerful negotiating skills to help them achieve their goals.
AN ANALYTICAL TURN OF MIND
Ken's college education was in engineering and he worked as a mechanical design engineer for more than a decade before beginning his career in real estate. Like all succesful engineers, Ken leans toward a more analytical view of the world. This gives him a different way of thinking about houses and the housing market than most other real estate agents.
Ken believes his role as your agent is to be as objective as possible and help you look at every issue and every question from more than one point of view. If you agree this is the safest way to approach one of the most important decisions of a lifetime, you'll like having Ken as your agent.
Ken is a friendly guy who puts people at ease and makes the process of buying or selling a home less stressful. You can trust him to give you accurate and unbiased advice on every aspect of real estate.
REAL ESTATE SPECIALTY
Ken is a big booster of the M-Street/Lakewood neighborhoods between downtown Dallas and White Rock Lake. He is best known for his intimate knowledge of the market in this part of Dallas, but he also enjoys selling in the newer neighborhoods east of White Rock Lake as well as in Oak Cliff and Lake Highlands.
