My Client Reviews
My husband, our daughter, and I had the pleasure of working with Kent twice in a less than two-year period. Our daughter accepted a job in Hot Springs in the late summer of 2017, and was looking for a house there. Kent found a great fit for her needs, and helped us navigate a somewhat complicated multi-state closing! He truly looked out for our daughter's best interests and guided her, and us, in a caring, yet professional manner. Less than two years later, our daughter's life path led her to a different city, so we reached out to Kent to help us with the sale of the Hot Springs house. Every step of the way, we felt that Kent had our backs, kept us well-apprised, and diligently searched for that "just right" buyer. Though we don't anticipate another Hot Springs real estate need, we know exactly who we'd call if we did: Kent Dover!
Kent is a wonderful agent. He was very knowledgeable and resourceful. He has helped us with local services, Met us at off hours and answered any questions asked. Kent is very knowledgeable if the are and the market. I would highly recommend him for your real estate needs.
It was a such a pleasure working with Kent. He took care of every detail in the selling of our condo from the wonderful professional pictures, communicating with the potential buyers, sharing advice during the negotiating process, handling the inspection appointments, recommendations for a cleaning service...Kent took care of absolutely everything. His help was invaluable especially considering the fact that we live out of town and the listing and sale was all done over the phone!!
Professional! Due to my health, I had to sell my home of many years to be closer to my son. Kent helped me with staging advice, and checked on me throughout the process, answering all of my questions. Kent has a professional photographer on staff, and made my home look like a showplace! He gave my property it's very own website. He even forwarded packages to my new home in Montana! I would recommend Kent Dover as a top-notch real estate broker! Thank you, Kent!
To go down the list of what online reviews are about: Local Knowledge, Trustworthiness, Dedication, Responsiveness,...etc, etc...Check a box here and check a box there...really? Kent Dover is the guy that goes above and beyond those kinds of reviews. He's the one who asks what else he can do for you. He's the one who says he will take a measurement or take a picture for you when you're already making plans to drive a couple hundred miles to do it yourself, and when you tell him he doesn't have to do that he simply says "You dont't have to drive up here, it's my job, I'd be happy to do it for you." I could go on and on about the professionalism and dedication of Kent Dover, who over the span of two-years, provided an unparalleled service in helping us find the absolute best property for our relocation to Hot Springs. If you are considering moving to Hot Springs, AR, or relocating whithin the area, you will not find a better Agent to assist you with everything involved in buying or selling a home. I would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to Kent and say it was a pleasure working with you! Thanks Again!
Kent patience and efforts to determine exactly what we were looking for paid off. He was concerned about us, not high pressure just to sell a piece of property but actually to find "our" home. I would recommend Kent to anyone who asked for a realtor. Couldn't have asked for a better experience with him in finding our new forever home !

Traditional lore says that the best time to list your home for sale is spring and if it hasn't sold by the end of summer, you're out of luck. Along the same lines, homeowners across the country are often advised not to list in the fall and wait until after the holidays to list. The truth is that a great home will sell at any time of year and in fact there are some very good reasons to list in the fall, while everyone else is busy doing other activities. 4 Reasons to Sell this Fall 1....

You're a buyer looking for a new home. You come across an amazing home, but it has a pool. What's your reaction?Chances are you react strongly either for a pool or against one. I'm currently in the market for a home, and I went in with a very strong opinion that I did NOT want a home with a pool. But then there are some really nice homes with some really nice pools that got me wondering whether or not I should change my mind.Isn't it costly to upkeep? Do I have time to maintain it? Doesn't it de...
