Will Penney and his team are true professionals.

This is our second time working with Will. The first was 10 years ago when we purchased our first home. He made us feel so comfortable with the process that there was no question who we were going to call for the purchase of our next home.

This time, Will and his team helped us to sell our East Akron home in LESS THAN TWO MONTHS (which is remarkable for the area) and then represented us for the purchase of our new home. Throughout the entire process, Will was reachable via email, phone, and text--- ALL OF THE TIME. Honestly, I don't even know if he sleeps. A text message or email sent after 10 pm was answered the same night!

Selling our home: Will and his associates walked us through the process step-by-step and remained in constant communication. He gave specific staging pointers (which we followed to the letter) that I know aided in the quick sell of our home. He featured our house on Zillow, giving it a lot of exposure. When it came time to close the deal, he fought hard for us and got us the best selling price we could have hoped for.

Purchasing our new home: Again, Will and his associates were there each step of the way. Even though we focused on an area out of his typical radius, he and his associates were very helpful and willing to drive the distance. When we discovered a house that we liked, we were able to get into see it within 24 hours- easy. Finally, we decided on a house that wanted. Will negotiated the price of the home to a number that was easily comfortable for us. Will really advocates for his clients! Even after we purchased our new home, Will was reachable and responsive to any need that we had, as well as calling and checking in on us after we moved in.

Final Thoughts: Will Penney is truly invested in the happiness and well-being of his clients. He sees us as friends, giving us the best advice that any knowledgeable friend would give. He is not out to make a quick buck, he is all about quality of service. Will tries to get to know his clients on a more personal level. That may not seem important to some, but after speaking with other real-estate agents who do not even know what their clients do for a living, I personally see the value and investment Will puts into his clients. --In my opinion, this is what quality, client-centered service is about. We will definitely call upon Will Penney in the future and refer his services to friends and family. -- I cannot say enough nice things about Will and his team.

Wow, we were blown away with by Will's performance, he far exceeded our expectations. We interviewed three high achieving and highly rated listing agents and Will's plan was the most detailed and his marketing strategies made the most sense. So we decided to use him, and good thing we did, he priced it dead on, we received a 99%+ offer price within 5 days of listing, and closed on the house 30 days later. Will was extremely helpful in discussing our options, helping us understand the buyer's ability to close, and he was in constant communication with everything that went on throughout the process. I wish I could add stars to Zillow's rating system. Thank you so much Will, you made the entire process enjoyable and you exceeded all of our expectations. We are recommending him to everyone we know that is thinking of selling their house. AWESOME, that sums it all up.

Will Penney and his staff did a wonderful job in getting my house sold. They kept me up to date on my status in dealing with the bank and seller. My house was sold in less than a year it was on the market! I highly recommend Will if you want your house sold!

Sold a home in 2014.
Will was very professional and confident throughout the entire process. He offered his expertise as needed. My mother-in-law passed away and her house had to be sold. The biggest complication is that my husband and I live in a different state. Will made the process as easy as possible for us. There was an interested buyer immediately after putting the house on the market and Will was able to sell it and complete the process within two months. This confirmed that we made the right choice in choosing Will for the job.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Silver Lake, OH.
After listing my house at a price that was not competitive with the market for 4 months with another local realtor, I hired Mr.Penney. He made an honest assessment of the property with me that was reasonable and very reflective of his knowledge of the area and property values. We came to a price for the house that was in place with the Housing market in Silver Lake and the house sold in a matter of days.

From first impression to final closing, Mr. Penney communicated frequently and effectively with me as a new seller pointing out issues and superlatives in a very effective and respectful way. The icing on the cake was the closing with much less paperwork than I anticipated.

I would recommend Mr. Penney for your realtor needs if you enjoy straight forward, efficient,honest dealings for your home sales.

Sold a home in 2014.
We used Will to help us identify and buy a great little Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio rental property, and then soon after help us sell my deceased mother's home in West Akron. Both transactions went much faster than anticipated, in fact we sold the West Akron home in two days. It was priced to sell and we secured the asking sales price.

Great professionalism, response and local market knowledge all combined to make these two transaction go along just great. Would highly recommend Will and his crew if you are looking to buy/sell in the Greater Akron area.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Peninsula, OH.
We strongly recommended Will Penney. A smooth process for first time home sellers.

We were looking to sell our first house and did not know any realtors in the area. After asking people who they would recommend, no one really loved their realtor in the past. So, as with everything else, we Googled and came across Will Penney's reviews on Zillow. We were surprised by all the positive reviews and decided to give him a call and see what he was all about.

From the very start of the process, Will was polite, courteous and very professional. After our first meeting, both my wife and I agreed we wouldn't need to seek out another option - we were 'sold' on Will.

I'm a numbers guy, so when it came time to price the house, I was very glad he came with facts. There was no hidden agenda and we could clearly see why he chose the opening price point. His colleague, Tina, was fantastic in taking pictures of the house. Honestly, both my wife and I agree, that those photos were the best in terms of showing the house than any of the ones we have taken in the past. She too was very polite and very knowledgeable about how to make our house shine on the internet.

Throughout the month long process it took to sell our house (yes, only 30 days), both Will and Tina were a phone call or text away. They always were quick to reply back to us - being our first time selling a house, we had numerous questions and never once did we feel like we were bothering them.

The closing process went great - a small hiccup due to the buyer's lender caused a slight delay, but Will was on top of everything. Calling the buyer's agent and the title company to keep me updated - I was never left questioning "what's going on".

I'll admit, I had fears about the whole 'selling the house; process - I had heard some horror stories from people - but this was a carefree process for us.

If you end up reading my review out of the other 100+ that Will has here on Zillow - please take my recommendation in using Will - you will not be disappointed.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Kent, OH.
My wife and I couldn't be happier with our decision to be represented by Penney Real Estate Company for the purchase of our first home. Will and Tina were friendly and honest with us at all times, and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Tina was always flexible with us whenever we needed to meet or wanted to go see a home. We found the perfect home in our ideal neighborhood and paid less than we expected would be necessary!

We cannot thank Will and Tina enough and would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!
