"I've hired Jim & Jim on two occasions and was impressed by their market knowledge and refined process; both transactions were completed seamlessly. On the second occasion, Jim & Jim used a creative marketing approach and persistence to sell my home in a very difficult environment; the sale price and timing well exceeded my expectations. Both Jim and Jim Sr. are extremely trustworthy and reliable; I look forward to working with them again." December 4, 2010

The McKennas did an outstanding job helping my family find our new home. Their knowledge of the Northport area is second to none. They were always willing to go the extra mile, we were very impressed. My wife and I felt very comfortable throughout the experience and knew that they had our best interest at heart. We highly recommend Team McKenna!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $575K in E Northport, NY.

Working with the father/son team was a pleasure. Buying and or selling a home can be extremely stressful under the best of circumstances, so you can imagine the stress when things aren't so perfect. However, Jim and Jim took the stress out of the entire process. They were professionals from the get go and they really did everything...taking all the stress of of our shoulders. Not only that, they treated Ilya like family. I can't say enough about their kindness, generosity and willingness to help in all aspects of our sale and move. Thank you Jims. We appreciate everything you did for us.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Huntington Station, NY.

Jim was a pleaseure to work with. He is very personable and easy to get along with. Jim would reply immediately to any communication whether it were by text, email, or voicemail. I never had to wait more than a few minutes to hear back from him. I always felt as though Jim had my best interest in mind and I felt as though i was his only client.  More Less
