My son, daughter and I would like to express our sincere thanks and also deep appreciation to Kim McKinney, our Realtor on the sale of my home. He became our advisor and good friend.
Due to health reasons, I had to move to a seniors’ residence, so there was a lot of work to be done — Kim’s advice was invaluable and he helped us with everything including staging, moving furniture and even with the loan of his car when it was needed. I would strongly recommend Kim to anyone who is considering a move.
I have had the pleasure of working with Kathryn Bandiera both as a buyer and a seller. Kathryn is a well rounded business professional with a consistent level of service. She has in one of my opinions one of the best methods for demonstrating factual and well researched information related to the market. Her performance combined with being a part of one of the best companies in real estate make for a great experience for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Kim McKinney was referred to us by friends who extolled his abilities as an excellent Realtor. Kim lived up to our expectations and then some. His professionalism, knowledge and assessment of current trends and markets in real estate, tireless work ethic and quest for pertinent information, along with a very calming approach were evident throughout the entire process of selling our home. We are extremely pleased with the results.
Kim is the ultimate professional!! As his business card states he will be your Advisor, Realtor® and Friend as you undertake this journey. We highly recommend him!
We first met Sharon a couple of years ago when she showed us a house and “loved her” right away! Sharon was so easy to work with, very professional and assured us very quickly that she would help us find exactly what we were looking for. Her exact words were that “if it takes 3 years or more, I will work with you to find you what you want” and she was right!
We listed with Sharon and her business associate Kim McKinney and from the “get go” they guided us through their “plan of action.” Their expertise in the marketing of our former home was so professional—together they made a fantastic presentation of our home, which included a drone presentation and the marketing portfolio was in our opinion “over and above!” Our home showed beautifully and SOLD within a week.
When it came to buying our new home, Sharon was with us every step of the way. Her business ethics are incredible and even though she has an extremely busy work schedule, she always got back to us and made us feel that we were her priority. We highly recommend Sharon—this is our fifth home and she stands out as the best realtor we have ever dealt with.
Sharon Montgomery is an outstanding real estate agent. She found me the perfect condo, then sold my former residence within two weeks of listing, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, no less. She’s knowledgeable, organized, diligent and patient – and I’m a handful! I recommend Sharon enthusiastically.
We would like to express our sincere appreciation and thanks for our successful dealings with Kim McKinney as our agent. Please know that his professionalism and knowledgeable approach on our behalf was extraordinary. He worked tirelessly and beyond expectation for us—looking into zoning, surveys and building potential. Kim got to know our property better than we do. He helped with staging, moving furniture—even using some of his own things—and calmed our frayed nerves when required. We will strongly recommend him to anyone needing an agent.
We were very fortunate in having Sharon represent us in both the sale and purchase process. Her superior negotiating skills were instrumental in us obtaining our dream home.…During this emotional and challenging period, she provided the highest level of professionalism, along with patience and understanding.
We would highly recommend Sharon to take care of all your real estate needs.
When making such a large decision, we wanted to work with someone we could trust. We met with Kim and liked his calm and professional approach. Even our cat warmed up to him. Throughout the process, Kim has been there every step of the way. His knowledge, honesty and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. Kim brought in a fabulous photographer, stager and videographer to showcase our home online—our listing looked amazing! Kim’s family was there to support him and us during the process too.
We would highly recommend Kim McKinney to anyone searching for a REALTOR. Kim is a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. It is not always easy to sell your house especially after the recent uncertainty in the real estate market, but Kim kept us updated with local sales information and what was happening in our area.
From ‘decision to sell’ to ‘sold’ in 14 days. Huge thanks to Kim McKinney!
We want to take some time to put into words our praise for your efforts during the purchase of our new property. We have used three Realtors now to date, and may we say with gratitude how impressed we are with your professionalism overall. You alleviated our concerns from the beginning.
From the onset your knowledge and advice were second to none; you were able to make us feel confident in knowing you were doing your absolute best for your clients. We did not feel in any way that we were just another number on your client list. May we also comment that our past experiences with realtors does not compare to your professionalism. Such a pleasurable process overall from beginning to end.
Thank you so much, Sharon. We will not hesitate to recommend your services in the future.
