"Thanks to Kofi and his team! They were able to sell our house in 2 weeks, after it had been listed with other agents for 3 years…and we got full price!

"Kofi is not just a top-notch professional… he’s good people."James Van Der Beek, Actor: CSI Cyber
"Kofi did an exceptional job selling our home and in helping us purchase our new home simultaneously. Given the long and arduous process and all of the moving parts involved with our transaction, we are confident no other agent would have been able to deliver the needed results. He showed creativity in the deal structure, patience with numerous barriers faced and a positive attitude throughout the entire process."Steven Graciano, NFL Network

"Kofi Represented our client, Kevin Durant, in his search for a penthouse condo in the Beverly Hills area. Kevin had two previous real estate brokers that were unsuccessful in their search. We were referred to Kofi, then everything started to fall in place. He not only located a great place for Kevin, but negotiated a phenomenal deal.
