My experience with Kevin was great. He was very knowledgable and "on top" of the process from start to finish. I was often times amazed at his quick response and effiency. This process can be extremely stressful. Kevin did everything possible to keep the stress to a minimum. I never once wished for him to be handling anything differently than he was. I will use him in the future if needed and would highly recommend him to anyone needing his services.

Thank You Julie. I appreciate your kind words. I am glad we accomplished what we set out to do and hope that your mom enjoys her new home. It will certainly be a better fit for her and less worries for you. As my tag line reads, "Focused On Quality" Enjoy the Holidays.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in East Hartford, CT.
My experience with Kevin was a breath of fresh air. I had worked with relators in the past prior to working with Kevin and lets just say the experience was not a good one. Kevin is very competant with his work and very organized. Being a first time home buyer I needed all the help I could get and he was there every step of the way, starting with a video of how real estate works and ending with buying a perfect home :) thank you Kevin for everything, couldnt ask for a better relator.
Keep in touch

Thank You for the kind words. I enjoy working with first time home buyers and educating them on the process. I wish the two of you all the best in your new home.
Kevin really knows what he is doing and helped us in so many ways to prepare our house for sale. We needed repairs and Kevin got us excellent people at the right price to take care of them. He gave us a lot of good advice.

Kevin is everything we can ask for in a realtor! He is dependable, honest and helpful. We are repeating clients and are very happy! I would recommend Kevin to anyone who needs a realtor to buy or sell their home. He is very professional and knowledgable and will go a distance to help you make it happen. We've known Kevin for 7 years since he helped buy our 1st home. Even to this day I still recommend Kevin to everyone I know.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Vernon, CT.
Kevin is an outstanding, professional, and thorough realtor. As first time home owners, my fiancé and I were very nervous to step into this housing market, Kevin walked us through the whole process and went out of his way to make sure we chose the right home. Throughout the whole process he communicated very well with us and finally found us the home of our dreams and we could not be happier. We will certainly be doing business with Kevin again in the future. It was an absolute pleasure thank you for our new home Kevin!

Thanks for the kind words Steven & Alyssa. I enjoy working with first time home buyers and educating them in the home buying process. Wishing you all the best in your new home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Tolland, CT.
I would use Kevin again in the future and also highly recommend him. We were specifically looking for a home with an in-law apartment and Kevin kept in contact regularly with potential properties. His use of technology worked well with my busy schedule, he would of course call when necessary but emails and texts are faster, easier and appreciated. We fell in love with one of the first houses we looked at and he helped us navigate the back and forth with the sellers regarding potential issues / inspections and everything that goes along with the home buying process. As first time buyers everything was completely foreign to us but Kevin took the time to go through all of the steps and answer all of our questions; even accommodating our schedules by meeting us after normal hours in his office. You are getting someone with vast real estate knowledge but without that "used car salesman" vibe you get from many agents. The others involved in the sale had nothing but good things to say about him as well, as other reviewers have stated he's just a nice guy and that comes across in how he deals with you. Thank you Kevin!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Storrs Mansfield, CT.
Kevin was the third realtor we hired to sell our home. He was the only one who actually listened. When we asked him to advertise on the UConn off campus web site, he did. When I asked him to let me know the status after a showing, he did, even if there was no news to share. He would often even preemptively send me a text message letting me know there was no news, knowing that I was probably wondering. I never felt that he wasn't working hard for us. He was the only realtor who really understood that people are online looking first. He understood how to use technology to sell real estate. And when it came down to receiving offers, he understood what we were looking for and seemed to get the message to area realtors so they wouldn't bring inlow ball offers.
And, he was just plain nice. I can't recommend him more highly.

Than you for the review, it is much appreciated. And, a special thanks to St. Joseph!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in South Windsor, CT.
Kevin was patient and worked well with my wife and I as we sold our home in CT, bought another home in CT and another out of state because of work relocation (he was not involved in the out of state purchase). The process was very complex, yet he worked well with the relocation company, the buyer's broker and as our broker on the purchase of the CT home. He guided us through the process, which as one might imagine had a few unforeseen challenges. Kevin address the issues, kept a positive demeanor and helped us stay focused on the ultimate goals. Today I write this review in my new CT home, knowing that my prior home is sold and that both transactions took place in a timely manner.
Probably the best realtor in CT and I have had experience with many realtors over the past 25+ years. Very honest, ethical & professional man. This was a difficult short-sale and Kevin was always on top of the situation and gave me almost weekly updates over a 6-month period of time.
