Jim made the sale of my condo a seamless and stress-free process. I appreciated his knowledge, enthusiasm and positive attitude. I would definitely work with Jim again should I have any future real estate needs.

It is with great pleasure that we write this letter to thank you for all your hard work and dedication in selling our house. Your devotion to having several open houses and follow-ups made you shine through it all. The professionalism you showed even prior to listing our house continued after the sale was complete and final. We realize you went beyond the call of duty to achieve the final result. We most certainly recommend you to friends and family.

I recently sold my house and purchased a condo. Mr. James Kenny handled both transactions. I found Mr. Kenny to be very efficient in the handling of both the sale and the purchase. He is very knowledgeable and I found him most helpful and friendly and he went out of his way to accomodate me and take care of all things pertaining to these transactions.

Jim helped me in the purchase of my first home.  I appreciated his professionalism, honesty, and integrity in our all of our dealings.  He provided prompt response to all of my questions and concerns and was always available to help complete the necessary steps in closing the transaction. I am very pleased with my home and having worked with Jim in this purchase. Thanks for all your help!

Jim, just a short note to thank you and congratulate you on the completion of the sale of my brother's home.  I am well aware and I appreciate the extra effort you put into this transaction in making the property presentable for sale, especially your assistance in the removal of 60 years of excess "storage" items.  The speed with which this sale was completed was very helpful considering my brother's health issues.  Once again, Jim, many thanks for a job well done!

Quite simply, Jim and his team took the stress out of selling and moving.  This was the first time I had sold property in Canaada and Jim took me through all the steps and had excellent advice for me.  His assistance in negotiating a great deal with a purchaser and their representative was fantastic and showed to me that he has a wealth of experience in the real estate industry.  All the way, Jim and his team kept me informed of the progress of the deal and talked me through the contrafct.  Jim informed me about an experienced lawyer in the field and personally made sure the lawyer had the documentation needed and the keys when it was time to exchange.  Thanks Jim, for making the sale and the move easy for me!

Jim, I wanted to let you know what a great experience it was to have worked with you during the sale of my Dad’s condo in Ottawa. When my Dad asked me to sell his condo as his Power of Attorney, I really struggled with selecting a suitable experienced residential realtor in the Ottawa market. Given that I’m not an Ottawa resident, I didn’t know the market and didn’t know any reputable realtors. A friend, Alan H., had met you a couple of times and mentioned that he felt that you would be a ‘great fit’ for my needs. He helped make the connection and I realize how lucky I was to be referred to you.

During our first phone call, you immediately demonstrated your willingness to assist me. I was cautious but you impressed me with your market knowledge/expertise in the Ottawa residential/condo area. We therefore arranged our first ‘face-to-face’ meeting at the condo the next time I traveled to Ottawa.

Our first meeting with my sister Janice was particularly interesting. I had done a lot of my own exploration/research of the Ottawa market. I had read countless of articles about the Ottawa area condo market written over the past several years. Everything you told me and explained during our meeting made me feel confident that you knew your comparative sales ad explained in detail the pros and cons of each property we discussed possible strategies and pricing points. Overall, we were basically on the same page regarding the approach to selling the condo. We concluded by agreeing that properties will sell when they show well and realistically priced right.

Once the listing agreement was done, you (and your ‘KennyTeam’) immediately went to work and arranged the condo photos, the web site/marketing material and set up the first and only ‘Open House’. As a result of your marketing presentation and the open house, you received an offer though another realtor within a few days. When you contacted me you seemed to be right on track regarding the negotiating plan and we worked through several proposed deals. Ultimately we sold the condo within the first week of the listing for almost 99% of list.

Given that I was not living in Ottawa, between accepting the offer and closing, you were very generous with your time and provided services ‘above and beyond’ the normal scope that I would expect from any other realtor. You arranged meetings for subsequent inspections with the purchaser/agent and you assisted me with the person who was contracted to sell of the remaining contents of the condo. You arranged for the final professional cleanup of the condo and delivered the keys to our lawyer before closing. This experience was probably one of the best/smoothest real estate sales I have ever been involved with.

Just one more point. As you were aware I had previously worked with a potential private buyer for the condo. Unbeknownst to you, the bottom line that my Dad and I had determined based on all of the earlier research that had been done, turned out to be ‘in range’ of the actual selling price that you proposed (net of commission and expenses). Based on your expert presentation of current sales comparatives and your market analysis/knowledge, the suggested list price recommendation produced a better end results for us than anticipated.

I would highly recommend you to anyone and if necessary would speak to any potential client to explain my satisfaction with you and your team. I wish you continued good success in your business. Thanks to the ‘Kenny Team’ for the terrific services.

Dear Jim, just a few lines to thank you for the most excellent job you did in arranging the sale of my property.  Please feel free to use my name as a reference to anyone who wishes to buy or sell real estate.  Once again, thanks for an excellent job and wishing you all the best.

Late last year, my sister passed away, and as part of my executor duties, my wife and I had to sell her condo apartment this year.  We had heard about Jim Kenny through occasional newsletters sent to us via Canada Post and decided to try him out.   It was one of the best decisions we ever made.

Jim offered to meet us right away, and we felt a strong rapport from the get-go -- he demonstrated a strong knowledge of our area and the market..  We very soon thereafter signed him up as our agent, and he initially gave very helpful suggestions on what we needed to do to stage the unit for sale.   The unit also needed some extra cleaning, painting, and carpet cleaning -- Jim not only had the contacts to do such work for very reasonable rates, but he also actually coordinated their arrival in the unit to perform that work -- my wife and I didn't have to do a thing!   We were also having some trouble getting my sister's bank to release some funds that were needed for probate -- Jim offered to come with me to the branch and everything was sorted out in half an hour!   

When it was time to list the unit, he created a very professional listing that also included photos of the building's amenities, and not just the unit itself.   An open house took place shortly afterwards, and within a couple of days, there were competing offers where Jim showed excellent negotiation skills to get us a great price.

Throughout the entire process, Jim always kept us up-to-date with what was happening and without us ever having to request such updates.  He was always punctual and pleasant, but also very professional in getting the job done.   We feel we were very fortunate to have Jim working on our side, and we'd recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell their property.
