Greetings! As a Realtor and in life, I live by these 3 words – Integrity, Service, Results. I always strive to keep my word and to provide a level of service that exceeds expectations. Then I combine that with current market knowledge and over 11 years of active real estate experience and ongoing professional development, to get you the results you are looking for
 
 It is my mission to: “Assist my clients in every way that I can, to make every real estate transaction go as smoothly as possible for them, and to do it all both professionally and ethically.” 
 
My philosophy in life is to “Always treat others the way you would like to be treated.”   I like to be treated with respect. I like things explained to me in a way that I can understand. I like to be kept informed. And, I like to work with people that I can trust to be looking out for my best interests and that aren’t just pushing for a quick sale. Therefore, I treat everyone with respect, do my best to explain the process, forms and paperwork to each client, keep the lines of communication open with each client so they are kept up-to-date, and I put my client’s interests ahead of my own. 
 
 For Integrity and Service – With Results, contact Kent today.

Kent helped us purchase our first home and he was wonderful to work with! I would highly suggest you contact him if you are looking at purchasing real estate. He was extremely helpful, understanding, and he goes above and beyond for his customers. He made the process very easy and always answered our questions, even if we emailed him after office hours. When we had issues with the inspection, he went out of his way to help obtain and place a kick board on the door in question. It saved us the hassle and stress of having to deal with it. We can't say enough good things about him.

We sold a house in La Crosse with Kent in 2016. His expertise and advice helped us get our house ready for sale, focusing on fixing or updating the right things. In the middle of a super-competitive market, Kent always made sure to stay in contact with us and other realtors. He was a huge help when we received offers and dealt with counter-offers. He saved us thousands and made the process easy. Kent is the kind of realtor that you are happy to have working for you. Extremely trustworthy and hard-working. Very glad we went with him!

We worked with Kent is 2008, and he bent over backwards for us all three times. He has timely and effective communication and we would list or buy another house with Kent! We loved working with him every time!

Kent was very easy to work with. He was more than willing to spend as much time as we needed when looking at homes. His experience really showed as he helped point out some things for us to consider as we viewed different homes. Kent was never pushy or tried to sell us on a particular home - his goal was truly to find the best house for us. He is very honest, and his work ethic was impeccable, as his response time to our questions and emails helped us secure the house we wanted. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.

We contacted Kent Gabrielsen to sell our house because of friends' recommendations who he helped sell their houses. We entered the relationship with high expectations, and after the sale of our house we can say that he met those expectations and even exceeded them. We would highly recommend Kent, and when needed we will definitely go back to him for return business. We knew the date of our move months in advance, and so not only did we want top dollar for the sale of our house, but we also wanted to time the sale to be within a certain window. In our first meeting with Kent where he visited the house, his experience showed. He was able to identify what were the most attractive items about our house to capitalize on, pointed out areas that we could consider changing in order to not attract negative attention, and described to us the type of buyer who would be most interested in buying. After analyzing the market, we met again to discuss selling price, and he knew what listing price to publish, knowing the price point of the probable type of buyer. He also told us what date to put the house on the market, considering the window of dates that we gave him. Surprisingly, he found a buyer who offered full asking price, and we closed 2 days after the exact date of our move. Throughout the whole process, from the first meeting until the closing, Kent acted professionally, kept us informed of the progress, and acted with integrity and experience. Looking back at the whole process, things worked out exactly as Kent told us they would. The bottom line is that Kent got us the exact results we asked of him.

Kent is amazing at his job! As a first-time homebuyer, my knowledge of homes and the home-buying process was extremely limited. Kent pointed out things that I never would have thought of, and make the process seamlessly easy.

Kent did not pressure us to purchase a house, he worked extremely hard to help my family find the right home.

When we asked for recommendations of local realtors, we were told that if we wanted our house to sell quickly, Kent would get it done. We found that to be true. Not only that, he went above and beyond to provide us with great service, helping us with big and little concerns along the way. He answered all of our questions quickly and honestly, helping us navigate the entire selling process. We have already recommended him to friends and will gladly do so again.

I NEVER give a perfect rating across the board, but Kent was absolutely wonderful to work with. When he brought us an offer to purchase our then home, the buyers wanted occupancy in 6 weeks. But we hadn't even started looking at houses for us! Moreover, we couldn't even start looking right away because we had other obligations. A week later, Kent made himself available whenever we were available. We looked at houses, lots of houses, practically every day. And when we found the perfect house, he prepared the paperwork quickly and we submitted the first offer on the house. This is the 4th house I have purchased in my life, and I have worked with quite a few realtors over the years. Kent is the best of them all.

Kent is attentive, kind, sincere, organized, knowledgeable, and personable. This was my first time ever buying a home and I can honestly say that despite my hesitations, fears, and pressures about the process, Kent extinguished each and every one of them with aplomb. No matter what the topic is--VA Home Loans (this is what he helped my wife and I with), home inspections, negotiations, you name it, he is a flawless master of his craft. If he's unsure of something, he will quickly find out the answer for you.

One of the great things about him is that there is zero pressure from him. He doesn't force you to look at properties you may not want to, he doesn't compel you to buy or quickly shuffle you through viewings of homes, he goes at your pace.

Kent is by far and away the best Realtor in the area, if not the entire country. He's easily the Michael Jordan of Real Estate Agents and if you don't believe me, I also have ocean-front property in Arizona that you can buy.

Kent was an absolute GEM to work with. He always had our needs as the first priority, he was open to suggestions from us as well as showing us his recommendations. We would work with him again and again. We've recommended his expertise to everyone we knew on the search for a new home. His integrity and knowledge of the area were outstanding. Plus he's a very nice guy!!

Kent guided us through every aspect of the sale of our home. He made himself available after normal hours to answer our questions and concerns including explaining the process in detail so there were no surprises. He is our family's agent, in that, he has assisted both of our sons in the purchase of each of their homes. Thank you Kent, you are much more than an agent, you are a friend!

Kent is very focused, energetic, and respectful. He was aware of my time-sensitive need to sell my home, and he worked in a very reassuring, efficient fashion to sell the home. Not only was he technically masterful, but also a great pleasure to work with, always respectful, genuine to the core, and reassuring during times of stress. He had my full faith.

Kent was excellent and his integrity was without question. He, on numerous occasions, went well beyond what I would have expected in his explanations, guidance, and negotiations. It seemed that he genuinely put forth his best effort in everything he did in order to obtain the best results for my family in our purchase. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

I was a first time home buyer when I started working with Kent. I had tried looking on my own for about 3 months with no luck. Working with Kent made looking for a home a breeze. He listened to what I wanted and was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He answered every question I had in a timely matter. He gave me excellent recommendations and was honest with me. I am so appreciative of all the hard work Kent did for me.

I couldn't be happier with my new home!
