I am writing about the fantastic experience Jeanette and I had with you and everyone associated with your company since our lot purchase in March of 1993. Jeanette and I began looking for property in the northwest US and found Eli Property to be the most accommodating and lowest pressure property company to deal with. Kerry, you were definitely our inspiration to continue our dealings with Eli Property as a result of your down to earth personality and obvious desire to show us what you had to offer rather than sell us on the property. I receive mail or telephone offers to buy the property probably four or five times a year from folks in California, Texas, and Oregon. To make this long story short, you and everyone that we have worked with have been absolutely fantastic. I hope you will continue to update us as things happen near our property, and look forward to seeing you again in the future, not just for additional property purchases, but as a friend.

I am very familiar with the Eli Property Company lots at Agency Lake Ranches and Oregon Shores. As a long-time, experienced broker in land sales, I have absolutely no reservations about recommending the lots Kerry Penn has for sale. The price, panoramic views, “build-ready” status, location, lot sizes, and financing cannot be matched in Southern Oregon. I have spoken with neighboring property owners and they’re “SOLD” on having purchased and built on these one-of-a-kind, high-quality parcels of land.

On the second anniversary of the beginning of our retirement career, Jeanne and I want to convey our appreciation of your role in helping us make our retirement dreams a reality. Little did we know in 1996, when we purchased from you the five acres in Oregon, how grand it would all work out. Your recommendations on house designs and local builders were invaluable. We began construction in late 1999 while still employed and traveling extensively. The finished home is the nicest we have ever lived in, was completed within budget, and we visited the construction site just three times during construction. Some say we are lucky. I think it has to do with working with honest, conscientious people. We now have the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air, open country, great fishing, and the beauty that comes with changing seasons. Thanks for your help.


Gil and Jean Thompson

As soon as I returned from Iraq,( I am in the military ), my wife, son, and I visited Klamath Falls for 5 days. The most beautiful scenery, the nicest people, the small town charm, and everything you could want in a large city without the sprawl was laid out right in front of us like a red carpet. Patricia (Kerry’s colleague and the nicest person) and Kerry met us at our hotel and showed us everything. We saw our land for the first time on a cloudy, rainy day. Kerry kept apologizing for the weather, but we didn’t care one bit about the weather. It was wonderful. So wonderful we bought another ½ acre on the hill for the most spectacular view of the lake. We are now talking to a builder (recommended by Kerry) that will build our retirement dream home overlooking the lake . We have hit the lottery here, and it’s because Kerry was honest, forthcoming, and very informed on the market. What we liked about Kerry is that he gives you the facts and lets you make your own decision. Super low pressure and educated salesmanship is what Kerry is all about. We are so happy with our two properties that we are buying our third property, a five acre parcel. I highly recommend Eli Property Company and would be happy to be used as a reference for prospective customers.


Mike and Fran Cuthbert

I have handled all the escrows for Eli Property Company since 1995. I have found their buyers to be extremely well informed. With Eli Property Company’s financing the buyer does not experience the long wait as they would in qualifying for a conventional loan. It makes the escrow process simplified and much less complicated.


Pam Spencer, Certified Escrow Officer, AmeriTitle

My wife and I were looking for lakeview or lakefront property for retirement when a friend turned us on to Kerry Penn and Eli Property Company. We were very impressed by the website and arranged a visit to the area where we were taken on a well organized tour of the Klamath Falls area then shown several properties overlooking Agency Lake. We loved the lot Kerry picked out for us! Kerry was very straightforward and easy to deal with. There was no pressure and no hype. Since then, my wife and I have been excitedly planning our move to Oregon. We think we can pull it off within the next two years and can’t wait! The town of Klamath Falls is just big enough to offer the benefits of “civilization” without being overwhelming and the access to the mountains and lakes nearby is quick and easy. We love to waterski and a public boatramp is less than 5 minutes from our property. We also love to golf and there are many beautiful courses in the area that are inexpensive and challenging. We wholeheartedly endorse Kerry Penn and Eli Property Company for anyone looking for property in southern Oregon.


Carl and Dayna Barbee

I must admit, I was nervous about buying land in southern Oregon. Despite that hesitance, and at your suggestion, I did my homework. I checked your company out, called 5 references, spoke with the title company and consistently received glowing reports regarding you, the quality of land you sell, and the ease of the process. Feeling somewhat well prepared for our visit to Klamath Falls, my wife and I arrived in Klamath Falls near the end of September of 2004. Pat met us at the gate and proceeded to show us the quaint town of Klamath Falls, with it’s turn of the 19th-century architecture, the modern shops and conveniences and the properties in the surrounding area. Yet when you showed us your properties up on Agency Lake the next morning, we were simply unprepared for the grandeur and unparalleled views of having the Cascades mirrored on the lake in front of us. The website photos simply cannot do justice to the beauty of the place. In fact, we loved it so much that we bought a 5 acre parcel for ourselves and a 1/3 acre parcel as an investment. We hit it off so well, that by the end of the real estate trip, we felt and continue to feel as though we had made a new life-long friend and neighbor. We look forward to the next time we can return to our land and be in the fresh air and beautiful scenery once again. Thanks so much for making this purchase enjoyable and easy.


Chris and Lisa Duehring

I became acquainted with Kerry Penn in the early 1970’s when we were both beginning our businesses. I have been Kerry’s CPA since those early days and have seen him work hard and succeed in his business activities. He has done so because he is not only a qualified real estate professional and excellent businessman, with common sense understanding that he brings to each deal, but he also goes beyond to make sure each of his clients are well informed and given top level service throughout the transaction processing. I am proud and pleased to include Kerry among my oldest client relationships and friends, and do not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.


Joe Winchell, CPA

We are very pleased with our property. The pictures we took do not do it justice! We are now dreaming of sitting on our deck with that morning cup of coffee overlooking the gorgeous lake view. It just doesn’t get any better than that! You sure made our selection stress free. Pat also did a great job of familiarizing us with the city. Your tour of the properties was very thorough. We think Klamath County offers everything we will want or need in our retirement. Thanks again! We are counting the days until we can return and visit our property.


Cecile and Richard Thomas

What first impressed us most about Eli Property Company was their informative website. It certainly piqued our interest in searching for property in Oregon. They were quick to respond to our inquiries and very accommodating. During our in-home presentation, we were never given the “high pressure expected” sales pitch. All of our questions were answered in a very direct and truthful manner. Our visit to Oregon to view the properties could not have been any more pleasurable. The tour of Klamath by Patricia was a real treat – seeing the surrounding areas and comparables was essential. When it came time to view the actual properties with Kerry, here again, pressure was not the strategy. Everything represented to us has proven to be true…..Our experience was a very pleasurable one. I would highly recommend anyone looking for Oregon property to first contact Eli Property Company.


Jamie & Jim Filipeli


Ever since my wife and I took a road trip from our current home in Peoria, Arizona to Squamish Canada in the summer of 2004, we both knew Southern Oregon was the place we wanted to retire. We decided on the area because of the mild climate and the endless outdoor activities available year around. We traveled back to Oregon a few more times that very same year , but were unable to find the right property. After searching the internet, we came across, where we saw some eye-catching photos of property with Agency Lake and the snow-capped Cascade Mountains in the background. Through Eli Property Company we came in contact with Kerry Penn, who arranged a trip for us to Klamath Falls to view the available properties. Kerry and his associate Pat did a wonderful job informing us about the town itself, the lake and surrounding area, and answering many questions we had. The drive along Upper-Klamath Lake and the rivers was simply amazing. We will never forget all the different birds we saw especially our sighting of a few Bald Eagles. Thanks so much to Kerry for taking the time and showing us all the available properties, that we are now the proud owners of an awesome piece of land that overlooks Agency Lake. We highly recommend this company , and many of our friends are already looking for the web-site. Amertitle was very easy to deal with no hassles at all. My wife and I can’t wait to move out of the heat of Arizona. Thanks again to Kerry Penn for helping us find our piece of paradise.


Tommy and Claudia Morales

Searching for a few months on the Internet I was attracted to what appeared to be something different on Eli Property’s website. There is a straightforwardness in the writing and the properties are very appealing. I am so glad that I have purchased here because the property much exceeded my expectations! Patricia’s tour of Klamath Falls is very helpful and both she and Kerry are genuinely friendly – I never felt pressured into buying and I think this is because the properties and the area sell themselves. In addition, Kerry spent the time with me to help me find the property that suited my taste and fit my budget. After deciding on a property site the second day there I told Kerry as we drove back to Klamath Falls along beautiful Klamath Lake that I was ready to retire and move there that day! I can hardly wait! I highly endorse Kerry and his properties. If you are serious about buying land in a truly beautiful setting and you want to deal with an individual who is honest and straightforward then Eli Property Company and Kerry Penn are for you.


Brewster Cotton

We looked up and down the West coast at homes and property. We looked in Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, etc. but when we found the Eli Property site, it was different. The website was different, so straightforward, and covered everything anyone might want or need to consider! Finding this place to invest in property or more – for us to invest in property, home, & life, was a journey all over the internet. I was immediately impressed with the straightforward, honest, & knowledgeable approach. There was no pressure, no fast talk. His knowledge, his questions, his answers, & his way of going about his business was so totally professional but personal. We both feel like we have made a good friend. We decided go up, look around. We can’t say enough about Pat, & Kerry & the entire experience. He showed us everything we asked to see, he gave us much to think about. He did not want to just “sell a property” at all. This had to be a right fit for us. We did indeed call references to check up on Eli Property and Kerry (I looked over the City of Klamath from every avenue online). Everything felt right. I would personally highly recommend Eli Property & the Amerititle team. From the first email to the final signing of paperwork this was smooth, clear, & clean. No surprises, nothing left unmentioned, no hidden costs. We are so happy & so anxious to take the next step of building our home on the property. I recommend the website, read every word and the testimonials, the advice about purchasing property, all of it. Of course the visit to Klamath was such an adventure, seeing the city, surrounding properties, the area, its beauty & wildlife, make such an impression. But listening to Kerry and all that must be considered about such an investment is important and made the difference for us! Thank you again.


Barbara Turner

Thank you for the unexpected and truly unique experience my wife and I had in purchasing land from Eli Property Company. You are most certainly not your typical realtor in the sense that we felt like we were dealing more with a friend than a business owner. With myself being a general contractor I deal with people who are suppliers, self-employed sub-contractors, inspectors and customers, just to name a few; all of which are relationships that typically deal with the task at hand. The personal sides of these relationships are limited and, expectantly so. That’s why in contacting Eli Properties, I was surprised at how you were able to maintain your owner status, get the task at hand done, and somehow, mix in a personal attitude that lasted long after the transaction was complete. Not many have this gift of honest communication. If I could tell your potential customers this personally, they may or may take what I’m saying to heart. The only thing I would tell them is that I would not have bought three separate lots across two years and recommended many of friends to you (who incidentally also bought property) if I wasn’t sincere in what I was saying. Lastly, being a builder I can usually tell when people have an agenda and are not sincere. I get a tremendous amount of practice in recognizing character traits; good and bad. If I could, I would tell your customers that you are sincere, honest and possess integrity not often seen in our society today. Thanks Kerry.


Brian M. Keast

My wife and I have been searching for land in various areas for early retirement and planned on moving to Oregon from California. My wife found the very informative Eli Property website on the internet. We requested information on the land and were contacted the next day. You couldn’t ask for better service. Most of all they have been very informative, not only about the land, but the whole environment of where we were going to live. Kerry not only helped us buy real estate, but has become a good friend. He has helped us in all areas from finding the land to finding a contractor to build our new home. I highly recommend the Eli Property group. They are truly honest and very dependable and most of all very informative in all aspects. I am speaking from experience because I am a Realtor myself for many years in California and couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to work with.


Dan and Kim Bennett

Thank you so much! We felt right at home with the way we were treated and enjoyed the whole experience. We are even more sure now than ever that the property that we are purchasing is our little “lot” of heaven. Thank you, Pat and Steve for making this whole trip and purchase so easy. We received so much more information than we expected. We truly appreciate the time and information that Steve provided, visiting the area with Pat and then viewing the actual properties (and up front and honest talks) with you. Thank you all for this great experience, We will always remember this as being one of the most pleasurable experiences we have ever had purchasing any thing. I will be sharing all of the pictures and information with my co-workers so that they to may want their own “lot” of heaven and meet some of the nicest people to deal with. We will stay in touch.


Dennis & Debbie Reiter

Jim and I came across the Eli Property Company website while searching the web for Oregon property. Our first impression was that it all sounded too good to be true – all these people writing all these wonderful things about Kerry Penn and his associates at Eli Property. Well it’s all true. Kerry and his associates went above and beyond to meet and fulfill our needs. We were provided all the necessary information to make an informed decision. We were even give names and phone numbers of other folks who had purchased property from Eli Properties so that would could call and discuss their experiences, and e-mailed several pictures of Agency Lake properties. From our first meeting with Kerry, we were immediately impressed with his forthright manner and his honesty. He made us very comfortable–he’s definitely NOT your typical high pressure real estate salesman who’s obviously more concerned with his commission than your well-being. Quite the opposite–Kerry made sure we completely understood the entire transaction, and only showed us property in our price range. He patiently answered all of our questions, and by the end of the day, we felt we had gained a friend. There was no pressure to purchase property, no feeling of being taken advantage of; when we decided to purchase property, the entire transaction simply felt right, and was incredibly easy from the moment we met Kerry to the moment we closed escrow. We feel that Kerry was looking out for our best interest– have you ever said that about your real estate agent?We highly recommend Kerry Penn and his staff at Eli Properties.


Jim and Susan Littlefield

Kerry and his staff were courteous and helpful in setting up our visit to the Klamath Falls area. My wife and I received a guided tour of the real estate in the area on the day we arrived. The next day, we found the property we wanted and purchased on the same day. We received first class treatment, and we very much like our new property.


Phil and Marie James

I want to let you know what a great pleasure it was doing business with you this past summer. Elsa and I are so excited about our purchase and can’t wait until we can build on our great lot! Our meeting with Steve was very informative and we knew from his presentation we were headed in the right direction. The two day tour of the area was very worthwhile. Pat was a wealth of knowledge and we saw and learned things about the Klamath Falls area that we otherwise would not have seen or learned about. The time you spent with us Kerry was also more than we expected. When you say you are going to pick the best of the best you are right! We carry the pictures of our lot with us everywhere we go and are trying to get friends and family to come up to “our bit of heaven” so they can enjoy it with us! Overall the whole Eli Property family was a joy to work with and we can’t say enough about the whole experience. Thank you for everything Kerry.


Debbie Burrows

Both my wife and I are active duty military members stationed in Florida. Through the years, we’ve searched numerous areas in Colorado, Idaho, and Wyoming for a place that would suit our retirement needs. While most accommodated our love for the outdoors, they also came with a drawback or two, such as a hefty price tag or more snowfall than we want to shovel. What a pleasure it was finding Kerry Penn, who listened carefully to our wishes and helped us find the perfect piece of property on which we will build our custom home. Klamath Falls is an awesome place to live…it has a fantastic climate with four distinct seasons (none too extreme), limitless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, and a blooming community. We’re thankful for Kerry’s honest, straight-forward business approach and would recommend him to anyone who wants to own land.


Bill and Amy White

We discovered Eli Property Company while searching the internet. We currently live in Colorado, and have been looking for retirement property for several months in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Colorado. We were initially impressed with the photos and prices on the website, so we contacted Kerry Penn for a tour. Once we met Kerry and saw the properties first hand, we were hooked. Kerry and his staff were very straight forward and honest, knowledgeable about the area and land values, and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Eli Property for their approach to real estate transactions, the quality of the available parcels, and the honesty and knowledge of their staff!


Jim and Rose Dederick

As the quintessential young family dreaming of our distant future filled with carefree retirement days, we devised a strategy early on which was based on a simple motto: There is a finite amount of land in the world, the value of that land–particularly that which is most desirable–can only go in one direction. Armed with a list of specific requirements, our two year search yielded a great deal of frustration, as well as meetings with a number of shady characters. However, Kerry quickly reversed that course and fulfilled our desires. Kerry’s uncommonly high ethical character, as well as his honest and straightforward approach has made our land acquisition an entirely positive experience. Klamath Falls is the only place we found which, quite literally, offers everything a heart can desire, and Kerry’s unique honesty brought it all together. A photograph depicting the view from our land currently adorns our household desk, and shared dreams of the house we will build are often the topic of our conversations. Thank you so much for everything.


Mike and Michelle Gesualdo

Several months ago a friend of mine bought property from Eli Property Company . Being in Law Enforcement I was naturally sceptical. The property sounded too good to be true. Meeting Kerry was a pleasure. I looked at his property and it was awesome. I bought a lakeview lot. It was one of the easiest purchases I have ever made.
Tony Meyer

Call me crazy, but I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. I’m referring to the day we meet back in June of this year (2002). I called you at the last minute the day before we were scheduled to leave Klamath to ask you about the lake property you advertised on the Internet. You were already totally booked that weekend but changed your appointments so you could meet with us anyway. We had come to Klamath to look at another piece of property that we had purchased over the internet with a 90 day guarantee stating; if we didn’t like the property once we saw it we could get our money back. After seeing the property, we realized that it had no CC& R’s to protect our investment and would cost a small fortune to develop. The surrounding area had an abandoned trailer and trash was dumped on a lot across from ours. We realized at that point that we had made a mistake! Thank you so much for showing us the property and for assisting us in selecting the right parcel to purchase. We knew we had found the spot for our dream home by the lake. We knew it was meant to be, and we were glad things had worked out like they did. Richard and I told all of our friends and family what an awesome experience we have had in dealing with you. There was absolutely no pressure, no hard sell, and you answered all our questions straight and to the point. Not only were we very impressed with your knowledge of the area, but your honesty and integrity cinched the deal for us! As you know we were so enthusiastic about this property and loved it so much that we decided to buy the lot next to ours. Because of you we can truly see our hopes and dreams becoming a reality. We appreciate everything you have done for us and feel like you are a close friend of the family. We look forward to seeing you again when to come back to Klamath in December.


Richard and Donna Felley

I found out about Eli Properties from a friend who bought three parcels from Kerry Penn. He finally convinced me to call about a lakeview lot Kerry had told him about. The picture was beautiful, and I decided it couldn’t hurt to look into the cost. Kerry spent time with me on the phone trying to figure out what I could afford, and then I took a weekend trip to see my options. Kerry showed me several properties, and his associate, Patricia , toured me through the downtown of Klamath Falls. I only spent a weekend there, but when I left, I had enough good information to make a decision. I am now the happy owner of beautiful lakeview property. It was refreshing to deal with such nice, friendly, honest people, and I am looking forward to my next trip to visit the property. Many thanks Kerry, could not have done it without your help!


Jill De Maria

The Klamath Basin has been a special place for me ever since as a kid I used to make the trip over from the Rogue Valley to hunt ducks with my dad and brother every autumn. This past summer, while visiting from my new home in Louisiana, I took my fiancée to the Basin for a day of canoeing in the marsh and we made the decision to begin looking for retirement property overlooking Upper Agency Lake. At first, we were not at all certain we would be able to find land with a view that we could afford, but then we discovered Kerry’s web-site. Kerry not only found us the great view we were looking for, but offered it at a price we could not refuse. Now we are looking forward to building a home for vacation and eventual retirement on our beautiful ½ acre, complete with towering pines and a commanding view of the Cascade Mountains.


Steve and Ellen Travis

My wife and I had been looking for retirement property for several months. We were looking for weather similar to that in Kihei, Maui, HI (15′ rain per year). We had been looking at property in California, Oregon and Arizona. I discovered Eli Property Company while searching the internet. We were impressed with the photos and prices on the website so we contacted Kerry Penn for a tour. Patricia Lidell met with us and did a great job of familiarizing us with the city. Kerry showed us a variety of available properties in the area. The whole experience was stress free as there was no pressure to buy anything. It was as if we were with a friend touring the area. We took pictures of the lot to use in planning our retirement in the dream home we designed. We will sit on our deck enjoying the terrific view of the lake and Mt. McLoughlin. We are very pleased with our property. I would certainly recommend Eli Property Company and Kerry Penn to anyone.


Jerry and Turid (Toni) Pulliam

Lesley and I would like to thank you, Steve and Pat for all your help with our recent purchase of land. From the moment we landed in Klamath Falls to the time we left we had a wonderful time. Thank you for making our time there so enjoyable. We’re very excited about our purchase and we can only smile when we show friends and family our pictures and hear comments like ” Wow” or ” Where did you find land with that view?” and my personal favorite ” You’ve got to be kidding”. Our best to you and you family. Next time I’m in the area lunch is on me.


Kevin and Lesley LaSota

I am forwarding you a quick note to tell you how much I appreciated the thorough and pleasurable property presentation by you and your staff. I have been thinking for some time about where I would retire. The perfect location would have to include mountains, lakes, desirable climate and a wonderful community atmosphere. When I came across your web-site I believed I found a suitable location. It wasn’t until I arrived in the Klamath Falls basin that I truly realized that this is one of the most beautiful places I have seen (and I have traveled the world throughout my 20 year military career). The views are spectacular; the dry, moderate climate is perfect; and the community endearing. I also wish to thank you for your candid, no-pressure pre-visit conversations and on-site sales presentation. You took the time to find out what I desired in a piece of property and then selected a few choice lots for my viewing. They were perfect and exceeded my expectations. It was very gracious of Patricia Lidell to show me around Klamath Falls and the surrounding area. The property could sell itself. However, it was your desire to present the best property that met my needs and to highlight the total package (property, community, etc.) that convinced me that I found what I was looking for. I would highly recommend your company and, in fact, have already passed on to a coworker your web-site address and phone number. I am very satisfied with the property I purchased and look forward to relocating to Klamath Falls in the near future.


Mark C. McCans

“It’s a breath of fresh air to in these days be able to do business with a person of integrity and who is so service oriented. Kerry sells by providing timely and valuable information to help the buyer determine if the transaction meets their goals, interest, or desires. No high pressure here, just good old fashioned honesty and customer focus. I’d recommend Kerry Penn to any friend or business associate. It doesn’t hurt to absolutely love the area too! There is such variety, there is something for everyone!”


Deborah Scanlon

The land offered by Eli Property in Klamath Falls is the best and most picturesque around. We traveled to the neighboring towns, Jacksonville, Ashland, and Medford for comparison-shopping, and they could not compete in price. Klamath Falls is on the brink of something truly amazing. Main Street is sweet and serene; the people were so pleasant we joked about it being staged like the 1988 movie “Funny Farm” with Chevy Chase. However, there was nothing staged about this place. Everything was as it seemed: peaceful, safe, and gorgeously nestled against the eastern slopes of the Cascades. The town is a nice blend of people young and not so young. The type of place where kids can play with minimal supervision – that is AMAZING! Life in Atlanta is decent (and necessary as of this moment) but it will never compare to the life we expect to have on “our piece of land” that we purchased from Eli Property!


Stephen and Kiki Katz

I am very happy with my property!You are knowledgeable and have been extremely helpful and honest.I will certainly refer others to Eli Property Company.


Vivian Dowell

I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was dealing with you and your staff on our recent trip to Oregon. The amenities offered in Klamath Falls appear to be first-class, and I like the way the area is growing. You are refreshingly direct in your approach to property sales and I like the fact that you weren’t afraid to tell us if the property was not for us. Thanks also for your flexibility in financing arrangements, which really helped us in purchasing the property. AmeriTitle has been a breeze to deal with. I was surprised by the lack of paperwork involved. You certainly make it easy for your customers to complete the deal.


Doug and Sue Reed

I am a research manager from Alaska and have been looking for property for a couple of years now in Arizona, Hawaii, New Mexico, and Alaska. The long term dream of finding property to build my specific home to retire to in a climate and area that met all my needs was finally realized with the help of Kerry Penn. Kerry listened to what I wanted and to my delight I found exactly what I wanted within my price range. I will recommend Kerry to my friends when they ask about buying land because he is a straight forward business man. I like the way he does business and I look forward to doing business with him in the future.


Pamela S. Peters

Thank you for your help in locating and purchasing property in Klamath County Oregon. Your expertise and friendly attitude made a normally intimidating experience very enjoyable. From our very first phone conversation to our eventual purchase, you made every effort to ensure that we were educated on the area and property, and that we were comfortable with our decision. Maria and I had a great visit in Klamath Falls. We felt you that you dealt with us honestly and openly, and that you were the right person to help us in purchasing our first piece of land. I look forward to watching our property value grow along with our positive relationship.


John and Maria Hannigan

My wife and I have been actively searching for our retirement property for a number of years. When we discovered Eli Property Company and the Klamath Falls area, we knew our search was over. From our first in-home meeting with Steve, to our tour of available properties with Kerry Penn, we have been completely satisfied with the whole experience. There was none of the usual high pressure sales tactics commonly experienced when making this kind of investment. Even the paperwork was simple and straight forward. All of our questions were answered without hesitation, making us feel completely comfortable with our buying decision. The personal warmth that Kerry and his Klamath associate, Pat Lidell, extended to us during our tour of the area instantly made us feel at home. We can’t wait to move onto our new property!


John and Karen Bates

We have always loved Oregon and have been traveling to the Northwest annually for about 12 years. I started looking for property in Oregon in 1990. If we liked it, we couldn’t afford it and what we could afford-we didn’t like. We looked in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. Too expensive and too cold–in that order. So, two years ago, we settled for property in North Carolina. It is a beautiful place but it’s not Oregon. So I continued to search for property in Oregon and luckily one day stumbled across Kerry’s website, Eli Properties. When I saw the photos on the homepage, I thought if these are real–this is it! We contacted Kerry and made arrangements to see the property. When we arrived at the airport in Klamath Falls, we were treated to good ole’ southern (Oregon) hospitality! On the way to the property, Kerry took us through several parks and asked us a lot of questions about what we wanted in a piece of land. By the time we got where we were going, he knew what we wanted and only had to show us (2) parcels before we were sold. The property is exactly what we have always wanted. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer guy to deal with and it couldn’t have been any easier to close the deal. Thank you, Kerry, for a wonderful experience, your friendship and a beautiful piece of land…I look forward to being your neighbor someday!


Taylor Martin

As a sales representative for more than 21 years, I have met hundreds if not thousands of “professional” sales people.  Kerry Penn is without a doubt one of the finest I’ve ever met.  Not only does he understand his business, he took the time to understand me as a person and a client.  Kerry got to know me by asking me questions about myself, and in doing so was able to match me up with the right piece of property.  Kerry never sold me on anything because he doesn’t consider himself a salesman.  He sees himself as a “Match Maker” of property to person.  I liked that because I felt like Kerry had a genuine concern for my well being.  I would recommend Kerry Penn to anyone looking to make a solid investment in their future.  If you are a person who appreciates an honest and straight forward way of doing business, Kerry is the right person for you. I have personally dealt with enough people over the years who have told me what I wanted to hear instead of what I needed to hear.  I appreciated Kerry Penn’s truthful and insightful way of doing business, and I will choose him again when I buy my next property.


Alan R. Barnett

Virginia and I want to thank you for the painless and even enjoyable process of purchasing property from your company. As we told you, we had been looking for property in California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho for the last five years before deciding to purchase from you last summer. Your company is quite unique from what we have encountered elsewhere. You have proved true to your words. You never pushed or did the hard sell. You were open in your communication about both strengths and weaknesses of the property. You did not allow or created any unexpected or surprise distractions. You provided lots of “extra” information about the community, neighbors and contractors. You have established a long-term relationship instead of the “sell, then good-bye” approach! Thank you again.

Our dealings with Eli Property Company and Kerry Penn were the best. I had talked to Kerry a time or two on the phone prior to viewing the property. The thing that impressed me the most was how he spends time with you to find out exactly what you are looking for and what fits your budget. He took us directly to properties that were within our budget and exactly the type of property we were looking for. He worked with us professionally, advised us financially, and after spending a half day with him, we feel like we’ve known him for many years. It was a very casual and enjoyable experience. He took the time to show us the area, point out many of the surrounding properties and developments and got to know us. He has contacted me several times since the purchase to ask if I needed anything and even took the time to have some photos of our land taken and sent to me. I would certainly recommend to anyone Eli Properties and Kerry Penn. I would be glad to be used as a reference for any potential buyers.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for your continued business. AmeriTitle has been handling transactions for Eli Property Company since the mid 1980’s, and we consider you a valued customer. Your knowledge and familiarity of property in the rural areas of Klamath Falls has proven to be an important service to your many clients.

I just wanted to let you know how much Karen and I enjoyed our weekend in Klamath Falls. Our time with Patricia Lidell Saturday afternoon was very enjoyable and informative. I’ve told you how much time I’ve been looking for the perfect place to retire. Karen is a hard sell, and nowhere was going to be good enough. To find a place where both of us could be happy was looking impossible. The area, climate, the city of Klamath Falls, and the lot you sold us, far exceeded our expectations. We both came away feeling real good about our weekend with you and Pat. You treated us like friends or family. It was a real pleasure doing business with you. You helped us learn about the area and find the perfect place for us to retire. Thank you again.

We would like to thank you for the help you gave us in purchasing our properties in Klamath Falls. We especially appreciate the assistance you gave in helping our son and his fiancée acquire their 1st piece of land. Your direct and honest approach was greatly appreciated. Your ability to key in on exactly what we were looking for made the whole buying experience an easy and pleasurable one. I was also amazed at how fast and how little paperwork was involved. Eli Properties and Amerititle have set a new standard by which others should strive for. I will highly recommend your company to anyone looking for property, especially in the Klamath Falls area. We look forward to a continuing relationship as our plans for the property proceed.

Both Carol and I were totally satisfied with how our business dealings with Eli Property. We were never pressured by any member of the company nor were we ever directed towards anything that we did not want or specify. All of our questions and requests for information were met with straight forward, honest replys which were always provided on or before any committed date if not immediately available. The provided information always verified out to be true and factual. Our experience was one of more like dealing with good friends rather then strangers or normal real estate professionals. This was truly a unique, enlightening and satisfying real estate buying experience.


Carol and Gary Schwartz

Our experience with you and Eli Property Company was very stress free. From the moment we contacted you (months prior to visiting the land) we felt very comfortable and at ease to discuss any aspect of land purchasing. When we changed our minds about finalizing the purchase of land after we returned home, you were very understanding and supportive. You applied no pressure whatsoever to change our minds and returned our deposit quickly with no questions asked. Kerry, you will be the first person we contact should we again decide to purchase land out West.


Toni & Wayne Duncan

From the moment Pat picked us up at the airport, through the time you showed us the perfect property that matched our requirements, your no pressure/ let the property show itself style really worked. It is a pleasure doing business with you!

As two of the old timers, about 30 years for each of us, I wanted to let you know that I have enjoyed our association with referrals and cooperation on many deals. In driving through the area I notice that many of the nicest homes have been built by your customers. I think our cooperation with each other has not only been a rewarding experience for us but to our customers as well. Let’s continue to make people happy.

Karen and I are very pleased with the two properties we acquired. We found Kerry good to work with. He understood what we were looking for and did everything he said he would do. We both liked the fact that he is straight forward and to the point.


Mike Czerkies and Karen Howell

We both would like to thank you for your help in acquiring our property. We especially appreciate your understanding of our particular needs and efforts to directing us to the beautiful parcel we finally purchased. Thank you again.
