Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Broadview Heights, OH.
Being our second home purchase we had a good idea on what to expect throughout the process from finding the right house to closing. However, we had no idea about the challenges we would face from an unpredictable seller this second time. Luckily we had Will Penney on our side. He was extremely responsive, professional and patient during an extended period of searching, waiting and negotiation. In addition, Will provided expert insight on several unique instances that arose during the process. I would recommend Will to any home buyer who wants an experienced professional on their side for the entire process.

Primary point of contact: Tina White
As a first time home buyer, I appreciated Will's no-nonsense, honest approach. He was knowledgeable, informative, and a clear communicator who always responded to our needs immediately. Will was clearly invested in our situation, paying attention to the specific needs of my family, which made him easy to trust throughout the process. The very same can be said of Tina, and together they make a very effective team who have strong community ties and will outwork anyone. I was impressed throughout my home buying experience, and am so thankful I chose to work with them -- this certainly won't be the last time. Thanks Will and Tina!

Will was great to work with! He was easy to get ahold of, and quickly responded to any of our questions. Being first time home buyers, Will was great at explaining the home buying process. I highly recommend Penney Realty!
As a first time home buyer, the home buying process can be overwhelming and intimidating. Will did a wonderful job alleviating any worries I had by taking over all the little tasks a first time home buyer normally wouldn't know about. The time between finding the house and moving in was only 30 days, which was amazing and very helpful. He made himself available 24/7, even writing the offer for the house after 10 p.m. I would definitely reccomend him to anyone buying a house. His no-nonsense honest approach, how hard he works, and the fact you can tell he genuinely cares makes buying a home easy and stress free.

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.

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.

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.

I could not be any happier with my total experience. From my first call to Will Penney to the final closing on my new home Will made me feel like I was his only client. I was kept informed through out the entire process of selling my house to finding just the right new one for me. My house sold in a matter of days after it was listed. Will went over and above to find what I was exactly looking for.
Will made what can be a very stressful process very simple because of his knowledge and expertise. I certainly will recommend Will Penney Real Estate to anyone who is in need of his services.
