Thanks for viewing our profile on Zillow.  I have been a full time Realtor since 1988.  I was one of the top Realtors in the state of Ohio for a large national real estate organization during the 1990's.  My wife, Mary, and I started Penney Real Estate Company in February of 2001. 

Unlike most of the large real estate companies who gain market share by employing lots of average Realtors, who sell 5-10 homes a year each,  we have gained market share by providing our clients with a much higher level of experience and service who, in turn, refer us to their friends and family members. 

I am more effective because I work harder and invest in my business!  The average days on market for my listings and my list price versus sale price ratio are better than most agents because I have more experience and I am dedicated to success.

Everyone talks about service these days.  But here is the difference:  I have over 26 years of experience selling lots and lots of houses!  I understand our local market, the buying and selling process, and I know how much homes are worth. I also understand how important communication is. 

I make keeping my clients informed from start to finish a huge priority.   An informed client is a happy client.  A happy client will refer us to their friends. It's quite simple.   Few things are more annoying to me than having to hunt someone down.  My clients never have to hunt us down!

Also,  unlike most Realtors who handle all aspects of the real estate transaction by themselves and spread themselves thin, I have a fantastic support team. 

BUT... our team works differently than most: 

Many really productive Realtors have several buyer agents and listing managers who they assign their clients to.  Those team members are the ones who work with the buyers and sellers, and the transactions are listed under the team leader's name .  So often times the buyers and sellers don't actually work with the team leader at all! 

I work with ALL of my buyer and seller clients, period. 

Our showing agent, Rebecca, shows our buyer clients homes, but once a home is identified the buyer works with me directly, and I handle the negotiations and the purchase process. 

Our client service manager, Tina,  helps with our seller and buyer clients during the marketing and closing process, but the seller works with me during the contract, negotiation and selling part of the process. 

This way, our buyer and seller clients benefit from working with our group, but I am always the one who oversees the important parts of the buying or selling process, and I work directly with every one of our clients. 

Our clients love this, as evidenced by our 5 star rating on Zillow!  We would love to work with you as well, so feel free to call us today. Thanks again for visiting my Zillow profile.

On a personal note... we have two kids, live in Silver Lake, and I am a long distance runner.  I've run many road marathons and trail ultra marathons.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Cuyahoga Falls, OH.

Will helped us buy our first home. He was extremely knowledgable not just in helping us find our house, but he also made helpful recommendations on mortgage lenders, insurance agents, etc. He's always available either through text or via phone and was quick with getting back to us. We definitely recommend him to first-time homebuyers and those who are veterans at buying/selling real estate.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Stow, OH.

Before our recent home purchase, my wife and I were first time home buyers with a lot to learn. We were recommended to use Will from a local contact, and were very impressed after our first meeting. We decided very quickly we were sticking with him. He is very knowledgeable and conveys that knowledge to beginners very well. He is a straight shooter, and doesn't sugar coat anything. He kept us informed through the whole process, and always had time to talk to us as if we were his most important customer. Save yourself the trouble of sorting through other realtors, and go with Will.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Northwest Akron, Akron, OH.

We hired Will to be our real estate agent after a failed attempt by another real estate agent. Although I never met Will since we already re-located from Ohio to Texas, I got to know him quickly and his knowledge of the business allowed me to put all of my trust in him. He kept me informed throughout the entire process and never tried to steer me in any one direction. Rather, he gave me all of the options available with ample time to make decisions. Going forward, I will highly recommend Will to my friends in the area that are looking to sell their home.  More Less
