After founding and operating his own Century 21 Ken Kjer Realty brokerage in Lake Tahoe, Nevada for 30 years, Ken felt that the time was right to move to a warmer climate. His children had grown, and he yearned for the Hawaiian lifestyle. He took the leap in 1994 and became the Principal Broker for Maryl Realty, a division of Maryl Group, until 1999 when he joined Clark Realty as the Broker in Charge for the Keauhou office. In 2007, Ken founded Kona Home & Land Realty.
Ken’s decades of dedicated service to his clients have given him great insight into all facets of real estate sales and development that he enjoys sharing with his valuable clients and customers. As a member and Past President of the Hawaii Island Board of Realtors® (HIBR), and understanding of the focused market in residential estate properties, coffee farms and South Kona ranch estates, Ken is the man who can make it happen with both perspective and ethics. He can truly attest to the “living in paradise” motto, and would like to help you with your piece of paradise, as well.
