" Kofi Represented my client, Kevin Durant, in his search for a penthouse condo in the Beverly Hills area. Kevin had two previous real estate brokers that were unsuccessful in their search. We were referred to Kofi, then everything started to fall in place. He not only located a great place for Kevin, but negotiated a phenomenal deal. He is the only person we use in the Southern California area. Kevin and I would highly recommend Kofi for all of your real estate needs. "– Business Manager for Kevin Durant
