Libby Kirwin lives in Newport, Rhode Island where she was born and raised. Before deciding to settle in Newport, Libby explored several career paths with extensive travel opportunities throughout New England, Florida and the Caribbean. These experiences have lent tremendous value to her business approach and commitment to her clients.

Libby graduated from the esteemed Massachusetts College of Art with a degree in Graphic Design. Her passion for aesthetic, detail and design is evident to this day. Subsequent to her graduation, she worked in the Boston real estate market through 2000 and moved on to explore the mega-yacht sales industry, serving as a crew placement manager & broker's assistant for the International Yacht Collection.

In 2002, Kirwin called upon her graphic design & travel experience to create Jack and Josie's Coffee Lounge in Newport. After it's success, Libby sold the restaurant and returned to real estate full time. Libby was able to work for a variety of firms in the Newport area, gaining a solid grasp of the market and each firms approach to such business.

In March of 2009, Libby launched LKPM and subsequently, LKRE. Her mission was simple: blend her positive experiences from each firm, while supplementing with a fresh, modern take on the industry. She believes that in such a dynamic market, every client deserves the exclusive boutique approach.

Perfect Day in Newport?
"Watching my husband surf on a hot summer morning at 2nd beach while I walk with my dog. The day follows with lunch on an outdoor patio downtown on the harbor with ice cold oysters on the half shell. I'd end my evening with a cook out on Gooseberry Beach watching the sun go down with my family!"

      - Will never recommend
      03/07/2012 - user672838
      Helped me rent a home.
      As a renter for the last 16 years (military), I have never experience such a horrible experience with a property management company. I agree with previous negative reviews that she does not get back with clients. Or as in our case, when she did, was extremely rude. She caters to her high end clients but has to realize, some of the non-million dollar clients are just as important if she wants to be sucessful. On numerous occasions, meetings were scheduled and never showed up. We were also lied to about amenties to the home (listings were incorrect), and were made so many promises that were not kept. And when we asked about it, we were told she didn't have time for us as our property was not worth her time. She did not make enough as the property mgr to worry about it.

      I do have to say she is consistant. As she gives great care to some clients, she is consistant in horrible experiences with the same clients over and over. I would NEVER suggest Libby Kirwin Realty to any client.

      Unlike other icey New England agents, Libby's legondary customer service will warm your heart! Libby Kirwin knows each property on the market and advise you appropriately. She was a pleasure to work with. Would do so again.

      Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Portsmouth, RI.
      Our experience with Libby was nothing short of amazing! Libby was an amazing advocate on our behalf. Libby is Extremley professional, but she was also very warm and understanding of our specific situation and concerns. If you're looking for a tireless fighter, who knows the buisness inside and out, someone who will constantly make you feel like their number 1 priority, look no further then Libby.  MoreLess
