Sold a home in 2014.
Kenny MacCarthy helped me through a very difficult sale of my property. He faced and solved every obstacle I faced and kept me informed of everything he tended to. He was knowledgeable, honest, professional and compassionate. I would highly recommend him.

Helped me rent a home.
Kenny has the best knowledge of Cape Ann real estate and does a masterful job of communicating it and educating his clients. Fun to work with, but never fails to honestly give you his assessment of properties, good or bad. We worked with him for a rental from several states away, and the video recording that he did for us saved us a lot of time, effort and expense. He's the best!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Gloucester, MA.
Kenny is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market and very savvy about marketing techniques. We had a unique type of property to sell. Kenny really understood the profile of the potential buyer that our property would appeal to and targeted his marketing to it. Ideas like staging the property really made a big difference. ( We were not fans of this as personally we always like to see a property empty but okay he was right! ) He struck a good balance of getting the property sold and meeting our needs. We felt like he always represented our best interest. He is professional, calm, helpful and has very good instincts about the real estate business.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Gloucester, MA.
Kenny was the sellers agent, while I was a first time home buyer. If I ever sell my house, I will get in touch with Kenny M. Kenny gets to the point and strives to be a man of his word. Kenny is direct, but still has a good set of diplomacy skills when necessary. You would want him on your team. Kenny was not a "hand holder". He sells a house efficiently and keeps things simple. I liked that.

Showed home in 2013 in Lanesville, Gloucester, MA 01930.
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.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Rockport, MA.
I bought a second home through Kenny. He really knows Rockport and Gloucester. i felt like he educated me well on the area, the pluses and minuses of various properties, what the values of places were. I ended up getting a property that really suited me, and for the lowest possible price.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Gloucester, MA.
Kenny did an excellent job for us and I would highly recommend him. We had relocated already and he went out of his way to help us with matters difficult to handle from a distance.

Sold a home in 2013.
This guy will PRODUCE for you. He gets the job done. PERIOD! Very effective game plan. He backs his plan up with solid research and statistics. When you sell a house, you will run into obstacles, and road blocks. It is just the nature of things. Kenny was a master at putting us at ease, and putting out any fires that would pop up every now and then. . Thanks, Dan

Sold a home in 2012.
I've owned a piece of investment property in Beverly for several years and decided to sell it. The property needed a lot of work in order to get it ready to sell. Kenny and his team of contractors handled it all from start to finish, including painiting, window replacement, installing bath fixtures, new appliances, staging and professional photography. I couldn't believe all the work he did. And I barely lifted a finger. Wish he was my agent when I bought it!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Peabody, MA.
My only wish is that I could give Kenny 10 stars across the board.

I am the executor of my parent’s estate in Peabody MA. The only problem is that I live in Japan, 7,000 miles away.

Kenny was introduced to us through our lawyer. Besides his professionalism, at our first meeting, about 20 minutes in, I felt like I was talking to an older brother or an uncle. (This is no act; it is just Kenny’s nature.)

Of course after almost 20 years in the business, he has all the answers. But this being my first time selling a property I had many questions. He answered each one politely and professionally, regardless of my ignorance.

He told us exactly what we had to do to bring a 48 year old property to market. Not only that, he has contractors and sub contractors he uses consistently. All of them are professional, show up on time, doing the work on time or ahead of schedule, and their prices are quite reasonable. (Some of them even gave me a hand doing things that were not in their job description.)

The bottom line… I can sleep soundly each night knowing Kenny is taking care of things. If you are selling a property straight out, or if the property needs to be tweaked with a little TLC for sale, Kenny should be your number one choice.
