Eighteen years ago, Ken Couture got his real estate license, and he hasn’t looked back since. He began his career by working as part of a team. From there, he became a solo agent and then the broker of another real estate company. When the market crashed in 2008, he rode out the storm by getting involved with REO’s and other investments and in 2012, he opened Couture Realty with a property management division. He sold that company after a few years, joined another brokerage for a short time, and this past July, he joined the Your Home Sold Guaranteed Real Estate company and opened his own brokerage firm.
Ken will be the first to admit that starting a business is hard, but the incredible support he received proved invaluable. Now, as owner of his own business, he is committed to providing that same type of coaching and training. “We offer the best training for agents, whether it be individuals or teams. With over six months of online training videos available to agents, they learn everything from marketing to team building, to working with buyers and sellers, as well as one on one coaching to help them hit their goals,” Ken shares.
Outstanding customer service is what sets Ken apart from the competition. He adheres to the company’s motto, ‘Your home sold guaranteed, or we will buy it.’ He prides himself in marketing the house in a way that ensures a high profit for the seller, using their database of over 17,000 buyers-in-waiting. He and his agents take the time to find out exactly what a buyer is looking for, so they can match their criteria with the right seller. Often, when they work with a seller, they already have a buyer looking to buy that type of home. “Unlike other agents who only show homes on MLS, we provide a list of off-market properties that most agents don’t know how to find,” Ken noted. If, after all their efforts, a sale doesn’t happen, Ken sticks to his promise and will purchase the home himself. Other risk reversal opportunities he offers include the guarantee that if a buyer or seller is not happy with his services, they are free to end their contract with him, no questions asked. They also make sure their buyers love the homes they buy, or they will sell them for free.
Ken vehemently believes in giving back and does this by partnering with two charities: the Disabled American Veterans and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He always lets clients know that a portion of every commission is donated to these worthwhile organizations.
Ken owns two restaurants, including Gambit, which boasts three venues: The Bank; Gatsby’s Supper Club and a Mezcal Speakeasy; and Bar Code Burgers, voted best burgers in Las Vegas. His son plays an integral role in the success of these establishments.
