Kevin Clancy was Voted #1 Agent in 2012 by Times Union Readers in their "Best of the Capital Region"

Albany NY Real Estate
seems to have become the catch all career for people that wash out or burnout from other industries. This may be one reason why Realtors rank as one of the least admired groups of "professionals". Ask a high school or college kid what they want to do when they graduate. I have never heard someone say " I want to be a Realtor". Most end up in real estate thinking it is a quick way to make a buck after trying other careers. Real estate is all I have ever done as an appraiser, Realtor, landlord, property manager, investor, or insurance broker. I obtained my real estate sales license my senior year in high school at the age of 18! I have wanted to be in real estate since I was a kid. I love this business!

The real estate market is cluttered with agent claims. "We are #1 in this", "We are the largest that" etc, etc. The bottom line is these claims don't mean anything if you can't reach your agent or your agent doesn't return calls. I guarantee I will return your calls as promptly as possible. Further, I return emails continuously throughout the day, even when I am on the road. I am a firm believer in technology and utilize the latest systems to ensure you are notified as promptly as possible of new market listings or market changes. I realize buying or selling a home is likely the largest financial transaction you will make. I have a sense of urgency and understand the importance of each transaction. My promise to you is to negotiate and handle each transaction on your behalf as if it were my own. I have instilled this sense of urgency and integrity in each of my agents. It has been said that roughly 70% of consumers work with the first agent they meet. The Capital Region has over 1,000 new real estate agents over the past 18 months! Don't let a new agent's lack of knowledge cost you! Experience counts!

One more comment on choosing an agent. The number one question you need to ask your agent in my opinion is how much real estate do you own? Not, "how much have you sold?"! If your agent is not an active participant in the real estate market you need to move on! How can someone that is not in the market give you advice on buying or selling a home? Over the last several years I have owned townhouses, single family investment homes, and multi family rentals. I have renovated and flipped homes and been a landlord. I have dealt with city agencies, canceled insurance, code violations, crooked contractors, poor property managers, and bad tenants! I have bought from HUD, banks, and private owners. I regularly attend courthouse auctions and trackAlbany NY Foreclosures . My investments have produced gains well into six figures in the past 3 years alone. I did it for myself and I can show you how to do it! Let my experience help you avoid the common pitfalls. You can buy a plasma TV, new SUV, or boat like half the country spends its money on. Sit back enjoy them and watch them drop in value year after year. You can also make the decision to improve your financial situation by adding an asset like real estate to your portfolio that actually creates wealth, income, and has positive tax treatment. I look forward to hearing from you!


My Challenge to you.

If you can find another Capital Region full broker (besides myself), with an MBA and 20 years of experience, that is a full certified general appraiser, and is willing to work with you one on one in the purchase or sale of a home, I will buy you dinner at the Capital Region restaurant of your choice!

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Troy, NY.

Very professional, outstanding customer service! Very quick response to questions or changes. Signage looks good, and the photography was excellent!

Sold a home in 2014.

My elderly parents informed me they wanted to downsize from their home of 44 years because it was getting difficult for my mom to go up and down stairs. The maintenance on the outside of the home was also getting too much for my 80 year old father to manage. They quickly found a one-floor place to live and wanted to move in a month! Every closet and drawer were overflowing with 44 years of memories! Needless to say, I needed to move quickly to get their home in selling condition! They insisted on using Clancy Realty since they heard Kevin's name on their favorite radio station, WGY, many times. I went along with their wishes and met Kevin at their first meeting. Kevin was extremely attentive to my parents situation and said he would complete a market analysis, so they could price their home and it would be competitive and sell quickly. Within 24 hours, we received a thorough one inch document containing numerous photos and information on comparable homes around their market area. Wow, was I impressed with the quick turnaround and the amount of information provided! I knew many open houses and viewings would disrupt my parents routine and I did not want to price their home too low, so pricing it right was crucial. Kevin gave us his expert knowledge and we decided on a competitive price. Within one week and only two showings, my parents received two offers on their home! Kevin managed to secure an offer and then continued to negotiate until my parents received almost full asking price! Kevin didn't stop helping us. He provided us with people that could remove large items that my parents couldn't bring with them. In addition, he kept them informed during each inspection completed by the buyers. The process was completely seamless!! My parents moved into their new home and closed on their home of 44 years all within a month! What seemed like an impossibility ended up being a truly rewarding experience. My parents recently received a beautiful gift basket from Kevin and will always remember how he made their dream come true! I would HIGHLY recommend Clancy Realty for your next move!  More Less
