My wife and I are using Kenny MacCarthy as a buyer's agent as we look for homes in Gloucester. We are impressed with his knowledge of the local housing market and his low-key manner. We strongly feel that he is working for us, rather than for "the deal". Our past experience with real estate agents is that most of them are working to get you into a deal, but not necessarily the right deal for you. Kenny MacCarthy actually told us NOT to buy a house that we were very interested in, and then told us why. That's what we mean by he's working for us, not just for a deal. He has a great sense of humor, is patient and responsive. He also demonstrated some seriously ethical behavior when we were interested in looking at one of his own listings, going so far as to tell us that if we were interested in the property, he would prefer to see another agent represent us rather than try to represent both sides of his own deal. Many agents will not do this and only see dollar signs.
