I came to Syracuse to buy investment properties. I contacted ~15 agents on Zillow. McKenzie was one of the few who personally responded instead of pawning my email off to an assistant. At first I wanted to work with someone who had years of experience with investment properties. McKenzie was experienced with selling and buying, but not on the purely investment side, but she answered all my emails at all hours of the day and night, which really won me over. I chose to start working with 2 agents, one who had tons of personal experience with investment properties and the other (McKenzie), who was really hard-working.
I'm glad I made the decision to give McKenzie a shot. The other agent, who will go unnamed on this review, drove me around for 2 hours and showed me some junk properties. I was very interested in the University area, but the other agent insisted there was nothing available. I don't know if there was a conflict of interest with other investors he represented or what, but he clearly did not show me the best options. The next day, I started working with McKenzie, and lo and behold, she showed me several university houses that I'm going to make offers on. She will now be the only agent I work with in the Syracuse area. I look forward to buying more houses with McKenzie's help.
