    I knew Ralph for a few years before I decided to sell my home and to buy a new one. When it came time to choose a realtor to work with, picking Ralph was the obvious choice for me because I knew how well he understood real estate and I knew that I could have total trust in his knowledge, ability and judgment. Ralph's virtual home tour beautifully captured the essence of my home and drew a ton of great compliments. Ralph's advice on pricing my home resulted in a competitive bidding situation, where my house sold for significantly higher than my list price. Ralph was exceptionally supportive and patient in helping me find and then negotiate a successful purchase agreement on my new home. Ralph is a true gentleman and a real pleasure to work with. I have referred several prospective buyers and sellers to Ralph, as I am confident that he will represent them as well as he did for me. You won't go wrong working with Ralph on selling or buying a home.

    Ralph Kempf was referred to me by a mutual friend, and after several Real Estate transactions, including 2 residential and several rental property transactions, I now consider Ralph and Loretta as personal friends. Ralph even went as far as to supervise the move of our personal property between residences when we were overseas, as well as acting as power of attorney for both sales and purchases. I would gladly recommend Ralph to a friend in the knowledge that he would go the extra mile to assist his clients.
  • Christine Hardten
    I would highly recommend Ralph for any realtor needs. I have worked with Ralph in making progressive changes to the safety of our community, and have found Ralph to be a person of great integrity. Ralph will work diligently to find the right property for you and your family.

    I’ve worked with Ralph for years and there is no one I trust more than Ralph in the real estate business. His dedication, hard work and integrity is the norm for Ralph, he has demonstrated this work ethic every time I’ve worked with him. Ralph is my first choice for any kind of realty work I need, I wouldn’t consider calling anyone else. Marc Simmon, CEO, Purehearingaids.com

  • Russel Munson
    Ralph was such a pleasure to work with. He understood our needs and our financial situation and put those things first. We always knew that he was looking out for our best interests, not his bottom line. Ralph really went the extra mile for us and helped us install a water heater in our new home. His years of wisdom in the housing market really came through in our searching. He saw things that we would never have noticed in the homes that we viewed. We've been living happily in our home for seven years now. The improvements that we made to this house at Ralph's suggestion have really made this place amazing. There are times when we think about looking for a new home just so we can spend time with Ralph again. We've recommended Ralph to several people and all of them have thanked us many times. Hooray for Ralph Kempf! - Russel & Allie Munson
  • Brittany Green
    As first time home buyers in a low inventory market we wanted to see it all. In my fear of overlooking the perfect home we requested to view at least 40 properties and Ralph Kempf happily toted us to all of them (through snow and ice). He was patient, honest, professional, flexible, knowledgeable and good company in our hunt. I really appreciated his quick return of all e-mails and phone calls throughout the process. I felt relaxed working with Ralph, feeling that he was honest with us and did not pressure us to buy. With his help we found the home just right for us! Brittany and Scott Green

    We met Ralph in 2006 when he helped us purchase our first home. A few weeks later we had a problem in the middle of the night due to the city sewer backing up into our basement bathroom. Being a new homeowner, I didn't have any experience with plumbing issues and couldn't figure out where the problem was coming from. I called Ralph for advice to diagnose it and within 20 minutes he was on the road making the hour long drive to our house. We worked for a couple of hours and managed to figure out where the issue was. I probably would have spent upwards of $500 on an emergency house call from a plumber if Ralph hadn't been so kind. When I had to relocate for work in 2009, we got set up with a property management company that turned out to be an absolute nightmare. I called Ralph to get advice on what to do with our property and he offered to take over management of the property for us, as the time was not right to sell. He has been an absolute life saver and now we never lose sleep any more over worrying about the house. Ralph is an honest business man who genuinely cares about the people that he interacts with on a daily basis, and those are rare qualities these days. I can't say enough good things about our experiences with him. - Jeff and Katrina Hill

Ralph really does care about his customers. T. Schutz Deephaven, MN.
  • Matthew Kang
    Ralph provided an amazing and personalized experience during the evaluation and purchasing process of my new condo. He was extremely flexible with schedules and provided honest answers to questions I asked about the property. He was extremely thorough during the viewing and inspection of the unit. From the initial offer, it only took only about one week to agree on a purchase price and sign the agreement!

  • Katherine Ballard
    Ralph Kempf was our Real Estate Broker during our families home purchase and also provided consulting services while we sold our home from out of state. Both transactions went flawlessly, from property searches, to lending contacts, to the home inspection, to negotiations, and finally to closing. We were so pleased with all of the outcomes. I have known Ralph for over thirty years and he has always shown the highest degree of professionalism. He is dedicated to his work and passionate about his clients wants and needs. Ralph has a thorough understanding of current market trends and is quite knowledgeable about the structural integrity of a home. He also has a keen eye for the aesthetic beauty of a property and really values those qualities. Ralph impressed me with his sincerity, honesty and patience. We requested dozens of showings during our property search. We had a specific criteria and he did not hesitate to show us all of our options. Anyone looking to buy or sell their home would be fortunate to have Ralph Kempf as their advocate for the transaction. Ralph did his job effortlessly and we were so grateful! Thank You Ralph! Sincerely, Katherine Ballard and Family
  • Bud Mutterer
    Ralph is very thorough and gives you all the time you need whether buying or selling and I have on on both sides with him. He has been most helpful in helping me with my rental properties , since I am out of state for much of the time. He looks and acts in a professional manner at all times.
  • Mao Lor
    My friends and I were on a search to rent a home this past April 2013 when we came upon a home that was managed by Ralph. Ralph was nice enough to make several trips to the home to show my roommates and I the place since we were all working and traveling at this time. The home that we decided to rent was gorgeous but lacked a few amenities, which Ralph was able to help us negotiate for and fix. Very satisfied with the results! I'm also very impressed with Ralph's responsiveness to our questions and concerns. I was able to get a response within hours of emailing or text and in emergencies Ralph was able to be there the next day. I would highly recommend Ralph to a friend and future renters/homeowners. His professionalism and care for his tenants is definitely top notch!
  • Ed Meisinger
    Ralph does an excellent job managing Village by the Bay Townhomes and Development. As the accountant for the property, I can consistently count on Ralph to provide timely and accurate information regarding tenant payments, tenant move ins and move outs, and property expenses. I would recommend Ralph as a team player to be counted on.
