Ken Shuttleworth did an exceptional job of representing us as buyers of two properties in the San Marcos/Escondido area. He has an extensive knowledge of all of the equestrian properties in the north county area, showed us many properties that we liked and helped us to select the equestrian property that worked best for us.
Ken performed a lot of research on the property including its actual zoning and permitted number of horses. He also provided us with extensive information about the facility’s current tenants and worked with me to review the tax implications of the various business entities that we could use to purchase the property. On the closing day, Ken worked very closely with us to value the remaining personal property and to purchase sufficient hay because the sellers did not leave us any hay for the evening feeding. We were very thankful that Ken had prepared us for the seller’s actions and his foresight made a significant contribution to the success of the purchase. After the purchase, Ken and Carol helped us learn about San Marcos and get through all of the minor problems that beset new stable owners.
Ken also was our representative in the purchase of a beautiful house in a quiet and secluded neighborhood just a short distance from the barn and did an excellent job of locating this wonderful house.
After considering the great service that we have received from them, we think that Ken and Carol are the best realtors in San Diego County.
