Living in the northeast and selling property in Florida can be challenging. I found that Ken was easy to work with he kept me well informed about activity/interest in the property and handled the negotiations efficiently and professionally. I highly recommend Ken to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the area.
Thank you Ken for guiding us through the stressful process of selling our home! We will always be grateful for your patience, professional guidance and investment of your resources. WOW! you listed our home and sold it within 2 weeks! and closed within 30 days. In case anyone thinks I’m overstating, have then give me a call. Thanks again!

Having experience in the Real Estate market I know when I’m going to buy a home in an area that I’m not familiar with the best thing to do is to find a relator that knows the area. After asking several individuals who they would recommend Ken Poirier was mentioned several times. I contacted Ken and discussed what I was looking to purchase. Ken selected several properties on our first showing and spent a considerable amount of time with me, which gave me a good understanding of the areas and price range of the houses. As everyone is always looking for a good deal when buying real-estate I can assure you Ken is on your side to find what you are looking. He is not a realtor trying to sell you a house, he treats you like he is trying to find a house for a family member. He will tell you the pros and cons of the houses to educate you on what to look for, types of roofs, hurricane proof windows, trust structures and elevation. A little but very important note he told me was the elevation of the homes in Punta Gorda has an impact on your insurance cost which is something I would have never asked. The home that I purchased met the elevation requirement and the insurance rate was reasonable.
Ken follow through after I signed the purchase contract was above and beyond what a realtor would do. He made sure everything was done in a timely manner and I was extremely impressed with his performance.
I have recommended him several time already as the realtor of choice when looking for a home.
We were first referred to Ken Poirier by friends that relocated to the Punta Gorda area. Everything they said about Ken was 100% accurate as he is a true real estate professional. In addition, the Coldwell Banker Sunstar brokerage firm is a tremendous organization that supported all our real estate needs.
Ken took the time to determine our interests and tailored the showings to offerings that were within our price range but more importantly fitting to our lifestyle. We spend a long weekend visiting the area and touring homes along with multiple phone calls and emails before finding a home that exceeded our expectations.
We are pleased to recommend Ken and the CB Sunstar office for all your real estate requirements.
KEN POIRIER in a nutshell:
- Personable. From day one, my husband and I enjoyed spending time with Ken. We now consider him our friend.
- Tech Savvy. I found Ken while Googling for an experienced Real Estate Agent in SW Florida. He setup an electronic search for homes that matched my criteria more than any other search engine I’d tried on other real estate sites.
- Knowledgeable. We had never purchased real estate in Florida before. Ken held our hand every step of the way. He is very familiar with the contracts for both buying and selling.
- Communicates Well and Often. I began corresponding with Ken via email from Indiana. He ALWAYS returned my emails, phone calls and texts in a timely manner with valuable information.
- Integrity. Ken truly seemed to care more about finding “the right” home for us vs. his commission. He only works with a limited number of priority clients to have the time, attention and energy to give the service we deserve. Ken never pushed us to make a certain decision. He instead helped us to lay out all our options for consideration.
- Good Listener. Ken asked a lot of questions. He understood what we were looking for and helped us find it. We couldn’t be happier.
I feel Ken Poirier is one of the best Realtors I have ever dealt with. He knows his market, value, quality and is very personable. He listens to the client – their wants, their needs. He does not waste your time with properties out of your price range. He takes his time with you. I was a house flipper in Indiana. I have dealt with a lot of Realtors. Ken made my wife and I feel so well taken care of in buying our condo that he closed on it while we were visiting family in Tennessee. He dots all the I’s and crosses all the T’s. You know as his client you are well protected.
the prospective homebuyer in punta gorda can do no better than secure ken poirier as their real estate agent. ken is knowledgeable not only about the different types of residences in the area, but also is expert @ matching home ownership to lifestyle.
my husband and i have been researching different areas with the aim of buying and enjoying now, with the goal of retiring in the area later. i must admit, i ask many, many questions with the aim of making the most auspicious choice. ken was very patient and obliging with all my inquiries. he was happy to pursue further research on anything he was not sure about. his expertise resulted in our buying a beautiful home,with a lovely view, in an area that suits our active lifestyle. because of ken’s background and experience, i also felt comfortable with the price point negotiated upon.
this is our 4th home-buying experience. it was by far the most painless of all the experiences. this was attributable to ken’s perception, knowledge, and expertise. i would not hesitate to recommend him to a prospective buyer.

Ken showed us 25 homes in a day or two that met our criteria. He knows the neighborhood very well. His broker, Elaine, is also very capable and helpful. Since I live 1300 miles away they coordinated all of the inspections needed and assisted through closing. Their gathering of documents, such as the survey and elevation certificate, saved me both time and money. i would gladly use them again.
Ken takes the time to know YOU and what YOU want, not what he wants to sell. He worked with us over two years to find our retirement home. In the process I am happy to say we became friends with Ken and his better half Judy. Ken is a person you can trust to have only your best interests on his agenda. He will work to narrow down what you are looking for so you don’t waste precious snowbird time running around looking at houses that you would not consider due to location, layout, price, or amenities. I have had many real estate transactions both personal and business over my years and I wish all the rest of them would have been thru Ken. He is the best simply because I can’t think of a thing he could have done better. You won’t find a better realtor…period.
Ken was very patient and never gave up on us. He worked with us for about two years and would always stay in touch. I would recommend him to anyone.
We found Ken to be extremely knowledgeable, he knew the area and listened to what we wanted. At no time did he seem pushy or rushed. a true professional.
Mr. Poirier did an excellent job helping me and my husband find and buy the perfect rental property. We are thoroughly satisfied and would recommend him in the future.
My wife and I flew in to see about 20 homes with Ken. Part of what Ken does is educate you on the area and home pricing and on top of that he is a nice guy. Over a few days of meeting with Ken our whole scope of what we initially came to see had changed. The view we ended up with is amazing and beyond what we ever expected. I buy and sell property way more than most so I see and deal with several agents a year. Ken is about as good of an agent if not the best I have ever dealt with. …EVER. If you are a serious buyer and want an agent who is very knowledgeable, personable and will be with you every step of the way you need to give Ken Poirier a call.
