After growing up in Central Washington and attending college in Spokane, WA and Southern California, my wife and I settled here in Boise. Work took us back to Southern California for 15 years and Central Washington for 6 years before we returned to Boise in 2016. What a joy it is to live and work among the amazing people of the beautiful Treasure Valley!
I coached college basketball for 15 years and loved being a part of building my teams and encouraging my players. I also spent 6 years in sales and marketing, which gave me a deep understanding of the importance of building strong relationships, providing great service and interacting with integrity. Finding solutions that best meet my customer’s needs brings me great joy! I have a passion for people and real estate, and greatly look forward to walking with you on your journey toward purchasing the perfect next home or finding the right buyer for your current home!

Ken provided outstanding guidance and was extremely knowledgeable during both the selling and buying process. He was always friendly, professional, and helpful. He went out his way on numerous occasions to insure we understood specifics and provided sound and timely advice. He is an invaluable asset to TripleCord Real Estate and is highly recommended for anyone considering buying or selling. ~Tate & Stacie Fischer - September 2019
I can’t speak to negotiation skills, because we’ve not yet negotiated anything...Ken has been very helpful in our search for the right house in the right (for us) neighborhood. He has been able to talk in detail about nearby towns as well. Not just house values, but local demographics, lifestyle differences and all of the ephemeral nuances that make an area Home. As newcomers to the state, this as been priceless. I’ll update this review once we’ve closed a sale! ~ Pat Hensley - August 2019
I'm taking this time to express our gratitude to Ken Sugarman for helping us find our new property in Idaho. He was a good listener and made sure he reflected back what we wanted and needed during our search process. After choosing our home he took care of all of the details and everything went very smoothly. We were pleased with his kindness and concern and would definitely refer others to him and his services. We are quite surprised that even now, after our property has closed, Ken is available to answer any questions about the community, HOA information and property maintenance. He has tons of great referrals for all sorts of contractors in the area. We appreciate you Ken!!! Thank You for being there for us! :) ~ Nancy Rivera & Jimmy Rogers - July 2019
I worked with Ken on the sale of one house and the purchase of a new house. He was amazing to work with. His communication is excellent and is always available when I need him. Although it was a long and trying process for me, he stayed true through it all. This is my second home purchase with Ken and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a property in the greater Boise area. He is a man of true integrity and follows up on everything. I cannot say enough good things about him. He will certainly go the extra mile for you. ~Jeff Folz - July 2019
Ken Sugarman was a pleasure to work with in our move to Idaho. He knew our needs and desires and found us a great home--in fact we bought the 1st one he showed us. His communication skills and real estate expertise were tops and he went the extra mile in explaining the buying process to us and negotiating with the seller. We think he's the best! ~Ann Taucher - July 2019
Ken listed our house in SE Boise, which sold in 48 hours, and helped us buy another house in SE Boise. Ken is very professional in all he does. He pays attention to every detail and is hands on throughout the selling and buying experience. He even helped stage our house! His responsiveness is second to none. He replies by phone or email right away and drove across the city multiple times at the last minute to show us a house the second it came on the market. Ken also took time to come to our house and explain the whole process of selling our house because we had never done that before. If you are looking for top notch service, combined with professionalism and integrity, Ken is your guy. ~Drew & Jenny Lingle - June 2019
"We couldn't be more impressed by the dedicated, professional, custom-tailored services we received from TripleCord Real Estate when we decided it was time to sell our home and buy a new home." ~The Stichkas
