Tim and Cory Shaeffer, Listen Technologies
"My husband and I have several properties and have worked with many real estate agents over the years. We have NEVER worked with an agent that is as hard working as Keith Binkley. Keith went above and beyond to get our home sold. He provided us with suggestions for the sale the proved to be invaluable. He also met with agents, inspectors, and various workers at our home from start to finish until it was sold and closed. It is our privilege to recommend Keith as he is honest, knowledgeable about his market and extremely hard working. Thanks for all that you did for us Keith, you were incredible!"

Ellen and Ronald Reisner
"It was our lucky day when you became our realtor for selling our home in Crest Estates of Lake Arrowhead!

The definition of the word 'realtor' is forever changed in our minds. Your knowledge, skill, dedication and commitment have brought a different dimension and new meaning to that which we have been accustomed in our many years of buying and selling houses.

You were professional and ethical in all of your dealings with us and any prospective buyer. Having us (as sellers) do all the paper work at the time of signing the listing agreement, and completing the necessary inspections, made the process for us a breeze! Your intelligence and good humor made working with you an absolute pleasure.

Seeing how you managed and participated both physically, emotionally and intellectually have made Ron and I wish that you would have a side business here in Los Angeles managing properties.

You hung in there during a time when the market was steadily going down, and still you managed to sell our home for top dollar.

It has been a pleasure to work with you Keith, and we give you the highest recommendation for anyone looking for a realtor in Lake Arrowhead or the Westside of Los Angeles.

We will be in touch Keith, have a wonderful Christmas and a very properous 2008.

Fondly,

Ron and Ellen Reisner"

John Aaroe, President Pru-John Aaroe
"I am extremely fortunate to have Keith associated with this firm. I have always found him to be a caring person with a high degree of integrity and professionalism. Without fail, he places the needs and interests of his clients above all else. His devotion is without question."

Linda Dorrel, Sales
"We needed to make our move quickly and Keith was instrumental in making that happen!

He listened to our needs and wants carefully, came up with inventory that fit our criteria, and helped us find just the 'right place'. Furthermore he provided guidance on the price and terms of the offer, and successfully negotiated the purchase.

He worked directly with our lender, the other agents, escrow, and all paries involved. We had a short 19 day escrow, and I am absolutely convinced that we could not have accomplished an on time closing without Keith. He was in constant contact with everyone to ensure that we remained on track.

Personally hand delivering my documents to our hotel at 5:30 a.m. should have been my first clue to his commitment to us, and to his real estate industry!"

Michael and Naomi Grady, Malibu
"Both of us are very, very appeciative of the remarkable effort you put into the recent sale of our 5.6 acre ocean view parcel of land in Malibu. From our perspective, you put as much time and effort into that sale as we would have expected had we been selling a multi-room, mutli-million-dollar mansion.

In looking back over it all Keith, we are astounded by the amount of time you put into verifying and discovering many details about the property before even taking a listing on it. Many of those details were quite new to us, although the property had been in my family for over fifty years.

And of course, after listing the property, you brought us a buyer, at the asking price, within a very short period of time, communicated almost daily, by either letter, fax, email or telephone. You worked closely with us and the title company regarding our 'title issue' and in all that you did Keith, it was demonstrated with outstanding professionalism.

You are certainly the best real estate specialist we have ever dealt with, in the scope of your knowledge, in your dedication to sheer hard work, and in your emphasis on keeping us, the client, informed.

Any client you happen to serve will be extraordinarily well served indeed!"

Lee Snook, Brentwood
"Keith Binkley has done a first class job! He acted efficiently, patiently and courteously throughout the entire process of listing my home, negotiating the offer, and closing the deal. He is a fine ambassador to the Prudential John Aaroe Firm."

back to top

Mara and JL Martin, Televison Production
"From the very start he was efficient, clear, articulate, knowledgeable, friendly and nuturing. We have heard stories from friends how stressful buying a home can be, however we feel Keith absorbed the stress, or simply prevented the stress altogether, by coaching us, keeping us always one step ahead of the seller, the mortgage broker, the escrow officer, etc.

We feel Keith was entirely responsible for making such an important trasition in our lives so pleasurable, and will long continue to recommend him to anyone and everyone."

Ron Jenkins, Contractor, Builder, Design
"I just wanted to let you know that I am very impressed with your pofessionalism and attention to my search for a property in the Los Angeles Area. I have worked with many realtors over the years and none have been as service oriented as your are, from day one!"

John Closson, Prudential Branch Manager
"Congratulations on another fabulous year!

We are truly fortunate to have you associated with our company, and I consider it a privilege to work so closely with you. Your commitment of time, knowledge and experience generates tremendous results for your clients.

Furthermore, your dedicated approach to representing your clients' best interests is at the core of our 'Commitment to Professionalism' concept and something you take great pride in.

Thank you for all your efforts! "

John Aaroe, President
"Once again, Prudential California Realty John Aaroe Division has distinguished itself as one of the productivity leaders in our industry. We could not have done it without you!

Your performance during this past year, and in years past, has been an important contributor to our high standing within the real estate community. This success can only be achieved through a tremendous amount of discipline, dedication and hard work.

We want to be certain Keith, that you know, that all of your efforts are acknowledged and truly appreciated."

Andrew Hurwitz, M.D.
" . . John Aaroe, I was extradordinarily pleased with the service exteded to me by your associate, Keith Binkley. He is nothing short of a superb person, entirely trustworthy, and absolutely dedicated to the satisfaction of his clients.

You should consider yourself lucky to have such a fine representative working for your Company. I would heartily recommend Mr. Binkley to any of my friends when considering a real estate transaction."

Jules Daly, Entertainment
"Buying a house is often a daunting experience, unless of course you have Keith Binkley.

With grace and a smile he will guide you through this process, assimilates very quickly to what your needs are, and methodically takes you through the choices.

Then, all of a sudden, the phone will ring, and he will say "I have just found your house" and he will be right!

The icing on the cake is his ability to walk you thru the purchase madness with ease, confidence, and an experienced eye for the details.

I'll buy another house one day, . . but only with Keith Binkley."

back to top

Mark Sommer, Management
"Keith Binkley represented my wife and I when buying our first home in Brentwood, as well as buying and selling when we moved to our second home in the Pacific Palisades.

He has always shown a tremendous knowledge of the market in general and has been the source of sage and sound advice when it has been requested.

He also had to convince me, against all my best instincts, to list our first house well above what I thought it was worth, and then re-affirmed his position by selling the house for $65,000 over his recommended asking in a matter of days.

I doubt I will put up as strong a contrary argument next time!"

Jennifer Sommer, Food & Wine Magazine, Account Man
"Keith is (in every way) the best person to have on your side when you are buying or selling a home. He has been with us since 1999 when we first put our toes into the Los Angeles real estate market, and in the heat of it all - made sure that we found a house that met all of our needs within our desired neighborhood and budget.

When it was time to sell our house, there was not a moment of concern as always, swiftly and professionally, he went to the task of listing and selling our house all within a 24-hour period.

He is also meticulous in all the details from writing the offer (with all the fine points), to handling the escrow and meeting all the particulars involved in the closing of a sale. My husband and I both work and were not always able to be there, but Keith always was.

Our entire family has used Keith's expertise for more than 12 years and none of us can imagine buying nor selling a house without him on our team."

Neil Dorrel, Investment Banking
"We first began working with Keith several years ago while we were looking for a home in Pacific Palisades. Our call to the Prudential office there was referred to Keith, and we consider it a matter of good fortune on our part.

From the beginning, Keith proved himself to be an extremely valuable asset to us. With the frothy real estate market at that time, properties were being sold in multiple offer situations, often in a matter of hours. When you add the particular tastes and high standards that we have, we knew that it would not be easy to find the right home.

Keith listened intently as we talked about our dream home. He didn’t waste time parading us around to properties that were unsuitable. When we finally found the right place, Keith helped us understand how to position our offer for maximum chances of success without bidding too high. Presto! We were the prevailing buyers!

Since that time, Keith has helped us sell that home and purchase our new place in Santa Monica. At all times in dealing with Keith, it is clear that he brings considerable market insight and expertise to bare. But we think the real distinguishing factor with him is the level of attention and follow through we’ve seen.

Keith is always ready to go the extra step in making sure that everything moves forward with the greatest ease possible. Communication can be the pivot point in successfully closing a sale, and no one is better than Keith in this regard. From the first moment we met, through every detail of three transactions, Keith has never let us down. In every aspect, from negotiating offers to financing to coordinating escrow and the countless other details, he delivers. We’ve always felt that he really cares about us. Even after the sale, Keith has acted as liaison with agents and developers in addressing any problems that have arisen.

In short, we highly recommend Keith. He goes way beyond what is necessary, delivering the highest level of care while minimizing problems. And he does it all with grace, a sense of humor, and his trademark surf trunks. A true professional and a great friend, too."

""Mr. Binkley has provided real estate brokerage services on two occasions. The first was for taking a lease on an apartment in Santa Monica in March 1997, and the second was for the purchase of our house in October 1997.

Having recently moved from England to the USA we had no experience of the US real estate market. Mr. Binkley was patient and thorough in explaining procedures and terminology, always allowing us time to read and understand the numerous forms and documents involved in both leasing and buying property.

On both occasions Mr. Binkley acted professionally, efficiently and diligently. He proved trustworthy and we never had cause to doubt the quality of his advice or actions.""

Malcolm MacEwen, Vice President, Fred Sands Realty
"Congratulations on your closed escrow at 11808 Dorothy St. #203, in Brentwood.

Fred Sands appreciates your cooperation in this transaction. Your professional approach to the business is a credit to you and John Aaroe and Associates.

We look forward to working with you again in the future."

Earl M. Price, Attorney
"Over the past several years I have had the opportunity to employ Keith Binkley of John Aaroe and Associates to act as the listing and selling broker on several properties for clients of mine.

On all those occasions Mr. Binkley's expertise, professionalism and enthusiasm were responsible for the successful sale of the properties at the optimum price.

As a result of his successes, my wife and I chose him to be the listing broker of our own home of 29 years. Again, he proved to be the driving force in the sale of our home within a short period of time.

I would recommend him without reservation to represent potential sellers or buyers. His approach and constructive ideas in the art of selling and buying real estate is unsurpassed. His honesty, integrity and sincerity is refreshing and effective.

I would be honored to be a reference for any interested parties who might need such an agent."

Werner Koenig, M.D.
"As executor of the Estate of Fred Nascher I became acquainted with Mr. Keith Binkley, who was functioning as the Real Estate Agent on the sale of the property at 1806 Camden Ave, Los Angeles.

I would like to state that Mr. Binkley handled the transaction, which became quite complicated shortly before closing, in a most competent and professional matter.

Personally, I would not hesitate to engage him in any real estate transaction, and wish him the best in his future endeavors."
