Ken did an outstanding job in helping sell my family Home despite some unforeseen challenges.

I would recommend him without hesitation.

Steve Collins

As a first time homebuyer, Ken made the entire process fun and easy.

His knowledge of homes is excellent, his attention to detail is superb and his efforts far exceeded my expectations. I will certainly be referring him to others that may be looking to buy a home.

Andrew Sepe

Very good realtor, very thorough and knowledgeable

Alex callas

My wife and I worked with Mr.

Ken Anslono to purchase our first home in Topsfield, MA and he was outstanding. We had zero knowledge on what to look for when going to an open house and Ken was always there at every showing (always early) to support us and help answer any of our questions. He was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. We told him exactly what we were looking for and the second anything close to our request came on the market, we were contacted immediately with all the details on the home. Ken is definitely more service than sales and has been there every step of the way. He always answered every call, text and email. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that he was just trying to get me into a home. His mission was to find me my home. I now consider Ken a friend and would highly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home. Thank you Ken for all your hard work in finding me and my family's forever home.

Corey Russell (Financial Specialist)

Ken was top notch to work with.

He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. He is very easy to work with and keeps the client informed of everything that is happening with the real estate transaction. We would work with him again and would highly recommend him to anyone!

Maureen and Dave Martin (Home buyers)

I had the great pleasure of working with Ken in finding a new home for myself, my daughter and son-in-law and their children.

Ken was very attentive, patient and informative throughout the home buying process; showing us numerous properties, advising us about the advantages and pitfalls while encouraging us to persevere despite the challenges of COVID-19! I am pleased to say that he led us to the perfect home; one that meets the needs of two families and creates a future for the next generation. Thank you Ken for your direction and expertise. You are one in a million!

He goes above and beyond what is expected of a real estate agent/broker. Ken is always a step ahead and is prepared for every twist and turn in the process of buying a house. He is extremely thorough and never leaves you wondering what is going to happen next. On top of all that, Ken is a warm and friendly person that genuinely wants the best for you and will do whatever it takes to make sure that his client is happy.

There were many obstacles that Ken had to overcome and he did so with a smile every time. He gave us a bargain basement rate with concierge services. I cannot recommend him enough. Simply put Ken is THE MAN.

Tom Keene (CEO)

Ken was our buyers' broker for a house we recently bought on the North Shore.

Ken knows the area inside-out, and was an expert guide. He has a wealth of information about all aspects of real estate. He is accessible, tenacious, and very generous with his time and knowledge. His primary aim is to make sure that you find a house you will be totally happy with. In addition to these professional qualifications, he is also hugely fun to work with.

Mary Jacobsen (Educator)

I have purchased several homes in my lifetime and have never encountered a better real estate agent than Ken Anslono.

He was/is very knowledgeable in all areas of real estate purchase, sale, and loan application. He was helpful in any area of need, even anticipating our needs, and patiently answered any questions or dealt with any issues. He truly works for his clients. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, without reservation, to anyone seeking an agent.

Ernest Freeman (Recent new home owner)

If there was a 10-star option, I’d select them all.

You won’t find a better agent to take an interest in your home search with only the best for you and your family in mind. Ken is knowledgeable, proactive, and really listens to your questions and concerns - taking the time to ensure you understand every step of the process. Truly the best of the best.

Lauren Russell

As an experienced broker that truly enjoys what he does, Ken makes the home buying process a little less daunting and actually enjoyable for his clients.

He is extremely easy to get a hold of and works around the clock. I am impressed with his punctuality and his readiness at showings when we needed simple things like a flashlight or even a chair to sit in while we waited outside. He is courteous and professional and always goes the extra mile. I thank him a thousand times over for being extra helpful even after the closing. We enjoyed working with Ken and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy, respectful, and efficient broker.

Thien Do

Ken did a fantastic job for us on two separate occasions.

He helped us buy our first house and helped us sell our first house as well. Both times he did an excellent job leading us through both processes. I highly recommend Ken!


Ken is very informative who caters to the needs of his clients.

He takes his knowledge and shares his wisdom in order to benefit to your advantage. Ken is also quick to respond if needed in a moments notice. I would highly recommend Ken to future clients..Great experience working with Ken..

Brian Verrette

Ken did an excellent job helping my husband and I sell our first home.

We had absolutely no clue what to do or where to start and Ken was patient while explaining what needed to be done. We got a lot more for our home than we expected and Ken sold it in a very small time frame. Overall we were very happy having Ken sell our house.

Ariel Short (Self employed )

Ken was so amazing through the whole process.

Not only did he recommend houses that fit what we were looking for he went above and beyond to help educate us to the entire house buying process. He was patient with us and helped us start to recognize the beauty we were over looking in other houses.

Kori Owen (Satisfied cust)

Ken worked tirelessly, always with a smile, and sold my house for asking price.

We ran into several complications with my property after inspections. He helped me navigate all of them by finding workmen and even helping me buy and pick up a new dishwasher! He will get the job done!


Ken is a consummate professional.

Not only is he expert in the real estate business but he is also expert in the mortgage origination business. I think he is licensed in both. That gives him the ability to be cognizant of everything that is transpiring in the conveyance process and the ability to explain it all in clear terms. He does so. Ken is an excellent communicator He stays in constant contact answering all questions and concerns and keeps his client continually informed as to the status of the transaction. This is my second experience as a client of Next Home and I have been thoroughly satisfied both times. I would recommend Ken highly.

Robert F. Gabriele

It seemed impossible but Ken made it happen, great realtor, very knowledgeable

Beth F.

What can we say about Ken besides the fact that he LOVES what he does!

We would give a list of homes we wanted to see and he made it happen! He was always available to answer questions, worked around our schedules and devoted his time to helping us find our first home. I've recommended him to family members and I recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor who strives to make his clients happy!!

Andrew S. and Emily S. (IRB Administrator)

My wife and I really enjoyed working with Ken as a buyer’s agent.

His was an experienced voice of wisdom in a very difficult market. We often commented to each other about how lucky we felt to have him. We recommend him highly!

Michael Lafleur

Ken did an amazing job of selling my rental property.

His communication every step of the way was outstanding. His knowledge of real estate unmeasurable. His ruthlessness to make the sale happen was sheer genius! His sense of humor a great stress relief. His honesty is a great asset ( he plays by the book ). I look forward to working with him on selling my nieces condo this Summer. I can't imagine working with anyone else!

Carlene Alboth (Landlord)

This is the third time I hired Ken as both a buyer’s agent and seller’s agent.

He always delivers by showing up on time, giving suggestions, and helping with details like getting an inspector, finding a mover, and help with financing. Thank you, Ken!

Priscilla (Metro West)

We are very thankful for all of Ken's hard work to get us into our new home.

The attention to detsils as well as his ideas on different things really came in handy later down the road. I would recommend Ken to any one I know who is looking to buy their 1st or 11th home . I already have recommended him.

Christina Green

Ken was Awesome!

I was very picky and knew what I wanted and the way the market is moving right now you have to act quick or it will be gone. Ken was out on a business trip and still was able to set it up and get me in the house to look at it. From there on out he executed flawlessly. We are grateful to find him and are very excited to be in our new house!

Anthony Sepe

Ken worked diligently with us for three years until we found just what we were looking for.

We jumped on the opportunity quick to secure the home we desired. His knowledge and experience were greatly appreciated along with his persistence to follow through.

Charles Reggio (Property Manager)

Gets things done and is a pleasure. Lisa and Tom

Lisa Lovasco

Ken was easy to work with and always available.

Our new home is perfect. Ken made the process easy and the price just right. Highly recommend him. Extremely happy with his work

Christine Ropes

Ken Anslono was a tremendous help to us with the selling of my husband's family home, which had been in the family since 1955.

We were relatively unfamiliar with the process involved to sell the house, but Ken was able to help us navigate the bumps and unexpected turns along the way. I would highly recommend Ken to work with anyone considering buying and/or selling a home. He was extremely patient with us, and also with other parties involved in the transaction, and helped to steer it to a successful conclusion. The family who purchased the home should enjoy it for many years to come.

Kimberly Collins

Ken helped us purchase our first home and when a job change necessitated a relocation, Ken was our first call.

As always Ken was friendly and offered excellent guidance without being pushy. He helped us navigate the market as first time sellers and steered in the right direction. We had one open house and full price offer the next day, you can't beat that! He advocated for us fiercely and protected our interests while ensuring a positive relationship with our buyers. Without Ken's expertise I don't think we would have been as successful as quickly. If we get the chance to move back to the North Shore, Ken will be our first call. We cannot recommend him enough!

Jaime Regan

We have been clients of Ken’s through several transactions as buyers and sellers.

He did research to ensure that our credit was best representing us as buyers. He patiently respected our needs and interests when searching endlessly for the best home. He chooses home inspection people who actually do a great job finding out if the house is what it appears. Ken went above and beyond to present our home in it’s best light so it would show and sell for top dollar. He is well informed of all aspects of real estate! He kept us informed of timeline events so all deadlines were reached successfully. He has proven to be a man of integrity and expertise. He is punctual and prepared for appointments, and was extremely respectful during the COVID restrictions to ensure customers and clients safety.

Lois Freeman (Client)

Ken Helped my wife and I purchase our first home.

He is very knowledgeable, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He was patient, and helped us every step of the way. There was no question he could not answer for us, and he took the time to explain every step pf the process to us. We felt more comfortable knowing Ken was working with us, and always kept our best interest at the top of his priorities.

Ray L. (home Buyer)

Ken Anslono @NextHome Now is a great R.

E. Agent. He met my every need. He was patient and listened very carefully to everything I wanted. He made himself available as if I were his only client. I had faith in him that he would work hard and find the best home for me and it all turned out as a great success. Judy Towlson

Judy Towlson (Receptionist / AA)

Ken Anslono went above and beyond to help get my condo sold for top dollar!

He gave great advice when needed and helped line up people needed to come in and help get things done far more quickly than I could have imagined. He was in constant communication about every step of the process and made a confusing process so much easier!

Katie Alboth (Homeowner )

Professional, yes!

And so much more. Ken is in the business of making your home dream come true. He focuses on your vision, is ready with alternatives when necessary and knows the buying and selling business soup to nuts.

Linda Davis

Ken was great at helping my Family and I get Our new home.

Nice and pleasant and great to work with. His knowledge of homes help us make the right decisions. Was always on top of things to make sure we secured this home. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Michael Cote

Ken Anslono went above and beyond our expectations of both selling our home and purchasing our new home.

He kept us informed throughout the process and communicated in a timely manner. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns to our satisfaction. We would highly recommend Ken to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. He is a not only a professional real estate agent but more importantly he truly cares about his clients needs. Bob and Christine Michaud

Robert Michaud (Loan officer)

I would highly recommend Ken Anslono to anybody seeking to purchase their new home.

I had a very positive experience. Ken went above and beyond his fiduciary duty to me. He was very proactive in making sure that my lender had all of the proper documents needed to get approval for the type of loan that I desired. He was very diligent in making sure that my lender and the seller's agent were doing their jobs, not only correctly, but in the most effecient and effective manner. Ken was always available when I needed him. I only have one regret in working with Ken. I wish I would have listened to him during our initial conversation, and utilized his "In-House" lending service so that the whole process was quicker than it was. (I had already been working with a lender prior to contacting Ken, and felt that I had to be loyal to them at that point.). I would utilize Ken in the future.

Paul Joseph Wood Jr. (Investigator )

The death of my father was a difficult time.

My mom had to sell her townhouse. Everything had to be done very quickly. Ken was recommended to us and I would recommend him highly to everyone. He made a difficult sale with complications easy and painless.He knows his stuff and is always positive. Highly recommend him to everyone !

Patricia Unni

Ken is a true professional in every sense of the word!

He went above and beyond what I think other brokers would do for there client. His advice was spot on. We bought our home without any problems very simple. When it came to selling there were title issues that were from the previous owner. Ken worked feveriishly and relentlessly to resolve these issues. He kept us well informed about every detail making us feel comfortable in a caoatic situation. In the end we did close. I truly believe if it weren’t for Ken the buyers would have walked and the house would have gone back on the market starting from square one. Ken did everything in his legal means to keep this sale. I know he would do the same for any of his clients. He is not afraid of hard work or challenges.

Rob Kempton (Hired Ken to help sell our house and purchase a new one.)

Ken sold my house in a few days.

Someone made an offer during the first open house. He helped with all the logistics in selling a house. This included meeting with inspectors and setting up appointments if I was not available. He gave me his recommendations on things that would help the house sell and give it better curb side appeal. Ken was very honest and upfront with all the fees and other things during the time he was my realtor. I would recommend him to friends if they are trying to sell their house. Sincerely, Dave Bradbury

Dave Bradbury (Mechanical Engineer)

Ken was very helpful in me finding my current home & he did give me some advise in the home search.

Also Ken was very patience because we did look at quite a few homes before finding the right location. In the future I would recommend Ken to my friends & family when they need to find a new home.

Alvin G. Yu

Ken has worked with us for about 6 months in searching for a house for my wife and I( first time home buyers).

Ken has been an absolute pleasure to work with, he never gave up on us and made sure the house we chose was the correct house for us. Also Ken was available in the blink of an eye weather it be night or weekend!! I would highly recommend Ken if you are searching. In the future my wife and I will be planing on using Ken if and when we sell our current home.

Marie Voltaire Ken

Relocating can be a difficult and stressful process.

Selling a home, buying a home, moving your belongings, and coordinating the many events that go along with it can stress the most detail oriented couples. And oh, let’s not forget maintaining your job responsibilities. Now through in a pandemic, and you’ve got the perfect storm, a storm that would pose an overwhelming challenge for any two people. Thankfully we had three! From the moment we involved Ken in our search he was sincere and attentive to our needs. Most importantly (and impressively) he was fiercely protective of our interests. His expert understanding of the real estate market, in addition to all the peripheral pieces of the transaction that impact the successful purchase; the offer, lending, inspection, closing, etc. are all second to none. In all areas, Ken worked on our behalf as a partner in the process. He identified the perfect property, protected our interest, and worked tirelessly to negotiate a deal that established immediate positive equity. He was by our side providing insight during every step of transaction, and post transaction has become a friend. Ken is customer centric and will consider himself “the custodian of your transaction”.
