There’s nothing better than a past client to help a potential buyer or seller understand what working with a specific Real Estate Agent is like. Below are a few testimonials of Kevin’s most recent clients: his personal touch, knowledge of the market, and exceptional marketing strategies shine through clearly.
“When I called Kevin for an evaluation, he politely requested a couple of days to research my property after which he presented a marketing plan containing a wealth of information. Impressed with his charming manner, knowledge and professionalism, I agreed to go ahead. My house sold within five days from listing at a price that was high on my wish list thanks to Kevin’s dedicated effort and first class marketing material. Thank you Kevin for a pleasant and relatively painless experience!”
“Homeowners in today’s real estate market are very savvy and often know the value of their home……We had a big number in mind for our home, and through Kevin’s absolute dedication, creativity and business-like approach to real estate sales and marketing, we exceeded it!!!! Kevin offered us absolutely exceptional service; from the minute we met him. He presented a thoughtful and detailed appraisal of our home, and was able to compare our home to recent sales and current listings, not only on the basis of the MLS feature sheets but because he had actually been inside each of these homes. He knows Chaplin Estates like the back of his hand. We were confident that he would be able to meaningfully distinguish our home from others based on its location, exposure, features, etc…By the end of his presentation there was no question that we wanted him to represent us. In the days leading up to putting the house on the market, Kevin was focused to present our home at its finest. He was very hands-on, which we appreciated because we are both busy with careers (not to mention three young kids!). He arranged for his handyman to make minor repairs, he brought in window cleaners, and believe it or not, he even planted flowers in my front yard, all in preparation for the big day. During the short time that our home was For Sale he was constantly dropping in to make sure the house was perfect. Kevin prepared an exquisite feature sheet with a strong narrative about the home. He worked day and night. He had both a well articulated marketing plan and pricing strategy which; well the results speak for themselves. He negotiated for us so effectively and was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. We truly enjoyed working with him and were favourably impressed with the process and the end result. We would recommend him to anyone who is considering selling their home in Chaplin Estates. If you want to work with an agent who knows the area inside-out and will get you the best value for your home call Kevin, you won’t be disappointed.”
“It was truly a pleasure and a privilege to work with Kevin McCarthy on the sale of 316 Markham Street. He provided us with sound advice on how to best present our home to maximize results, making numerous visits to consult with us, and always epitomized patience.
When it came time to list the house, Kevin surpassed all expectations with his professionalism and enthusiasm. The brochure he prepared to market the property was superb, he personally attended every open house – and held them for extended hours – and always made sure to provide us with a synopsis at the end of each day of showings.
Kevin was remarkable in following up with each prospective purchaser and, as sellers craving information, we felt completely in the loop every stage of the process. Ultimately, it was Kevin’s persistence that ensured that we were able to leverage the great interest in our property to the best possible outcome.
We would not hesitate to recommend Kevin’s services on both the sale and the purchase side – in fact, we have since purchased two new properties using Kevin as our agent, just in the past month alone.”
“Having Kevin as our Real Estate Agent really shone a light on the difference between a good Agent and an outstanding Agent. Kevin knew the Chaplin Estates market like the back of his hand, which helped establish an appropriate pricing strategy for our house. His marketing approach was unique and effective. He was dedicated and reliable from beginning to end. I recommend him without hesitation to anyone who is selling or buying a home.”
