TESTIMONIALS

“They evinced a desire to help achieve our goals. They provided advice about the tradeoffs in each decision and gave examples and additional help when we were stuck, but didn’t try to force a specific decision. More important, they seemed personally invested in the success of the transaction.”

Travis K.

“Patricia and Jim were very quick to respond to all of our e-mails and telephone calls. In addition, their answers were both detailed and helpful. They were also resourceful, as they had an excellent contact to stage our house. We followed all of the advice of Pat and Jim (and the stager) and our house sold in a matter of days.

“Eighteen years ago, Pat sold our home and helped us to find a new house for our growing family. It was so easy to work with Pat. The house sold quickly and we felt informed and very confident that she helped us to negotiate a fair price for both the house we were buying and the house we were selling. When it came time to sell our parents’ house.  we were delighted to use the McKenzie Team again. Selling a family home for a large number of family members is a difficult business and involves assembling a team of people to help you through the process. Pat and Jim really do bring a very reassuring personal touch to what can be a stressful endeavor. It is an approach that they extended to everyone involved in the sale of the house – trades people working in the house, perspective buyers, neighbors and family members. Pat and Jim took the time to get to know everyone, made suggestions and jumped into activities seamlessly. They really deserve to have the word “team” in their business name. Pat and Jim provided suggestions for making the house more marketable. Difficult decisions need to be made quickly and Pat and Jim made sure we were well informed and aware of our options. From start to finish ... Pat and Jim remained personally involved and highly committed to the care and sale of our house. We would certainly use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone.”

“They were one of three firms recommended by my lawyer for me to interview. I then selected Pat and Jim after the interview process. I liked their approachable style, coupled with their proven experience and results. They provided advice on how to improve the “presentation” of the property to maximize value, provided a list of reliable trades for emptying the house, painting, electrical, cleaning, etc., which made it easy for me to implement a plan at a reasonable cost. Once I selected them, it became even clearer to me that I had made the right choice. They kept in touch to see how I was doing on the plan we had established together, but I never felt pressured. They even helped by shopping for fixtures and Jim pressure washed the exterior siding and deck himself – just excellent service beyond my expectations. In pricing and sales strategy, I never doubted that they had my best interest at heart – maximizing value, but with a reasonable time frame. I felt they had a sound strategy to ensure value was maximized, and this was soon to be proven accurate. Once the house was listed, there were numerous visits to the house in the first week it was on the market. The feedback Pat and Jim received on each visit was shared with me on a timely basis to ensure I was always in the loop on how things were going. Including the written comments other agents were providing. I felt well informed.... The process worked and I am glad I followed their advice to the letter.”

"Jim and Pat were recommended by a friend. Upon our first meeting I could see that they were highly professional and extremely good at what they do, but moreover that they genuinely care about their clients and feel personally invested in making an often difficult process as good an experience as possible. They made me feel at ease right off the bat, so choosing them to sell my property was an easy decision."
