Testimonials

Nancy's understanding of the local market and ability to use technology and industry contacts to source prospective buyers was impressive. We were very happy with the end result and would recommend her and her team to buyers and sellers in Croton.

Fleming - September 26, 2017

If you are buying or selling in Westchester, there is no better realtor than Nancy Kennedy! She is extremely knowledgeable about the towns and the local market. We bought our new home with Nancy and sold our old home with her and her team. We met to discuss our goals and objectives with the new house and she advised us to look for our dream home first and assured us we wouldn't have a problem selling our home. Sure enough, she was right! We found a new home that was perfect for our needs and put our home on the market and within 2 weeks had an accepted offer close to asking and were in contract. We needed some help obtaining COs for improvements that we made and Nancy's team handled everything from start to finish - building permits, coordination of trades to get our basement up to code, etc. Colleen Coxen was our primary point of contact and she handled everything for us! Nancy even referred us to our attorney, Erin Coxen who was fantastic! We closed last week with no issues. Nancy and her team are professional and know their stuff - everything went seamlessly on both sides of our transaction thanks to her and the team. I hope I don't have to move again anytime soon, but if I do, Nancy will be my first call! Thank you Nancy and team - we love our new home!Less

Marie Terezakis - October 13, 2017

Nancy Kennedy and her team were extraordinarily effective partners to us in the sale of our home. They're professional, positive, and persistent. Nancy Kennedy is the best in the business, hands down.

We first worked with Nancy's team back in 1993 when we bought our first home in Croton. We sold that home and bought another in Croton in 2004 with another agent and regretted it through the entire process. When it came time to sell our recent home we did not think twice about going back to  Nancy's team. The sale was a tougher process than we anticipated but in the end Nancy got it done and we couldn't be more pleased. Not only did she shepard the process with a eye towards minimiizing the pain but was extremely helpful with recommending others like attorneys, movers etc. Her knowledge of the Croton market is beyond comparison. if ever looking in the area again we would not hesitate to call on Nancy and her team again.

- September 25, 2017

Nancy knows the area better than anyone. She knew things about the area no one else would. She answered all my questions. She made the process as easy as possible. I would use her again!

- September 22, 2017

Colleen knew exactly what we were looking for and what our needs were both in terms of space and location. She helped us buy our first home in 2013 and then our second forever home in 2017. Excellent communication and genuine personality. Highly recommend!

- September 13, 2017

Nancy came to the rescue when previous agent's efforts were lackluster and failing to produce results. Our switch to Nancy Kennedy made us regret we had not found her at the onset. She acted quickly with solid results. I highly recommend her.

Janet Malang - December 3, 2013

Nancy Kennedy has a fantastic team working with her. They were friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and totally responsive to our needs. Their service went far beyond help one typically would expect from a realtor--even providing a van for moving and a spot to park our POD.

cynthiapotel - March 3, 2015

Nancy Kennedy and her team are without a doubt the hardest working, most dedicated and professional people I have ever worked with. When you want someone to go that "extra mile" for you, look no further. She exceeded everything she promised and more. I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with  the service I received! From start to finish the consummate professional! THANKS NANCY!!!

mpk4u - June 6, 2015

I found Nancy to be very helpful in selling our home. She always was able to answer any questions we had, and always explained our options. Would for sure recommend Nancy.

Sheldon Habinsky - September 29, 2015

Nancy helped us buy a new home in a nice diverse area with great school districts. She was very knowledgeable, responsive and a no nonsense kind of person. I liked that. Straight forward down to earth and understanding of our needs. We're very happy in our new home thanks to Nancy.

Mrsdakotajackson - October 7, 2015

When it came to selling our home of 34 years, Nancy Kennedy was the only agent we considered. Her long standing reputation in the industry is well known in our community. I never sold a home before and Nancy and her team were there for us through every step in the process. They were professional,  attentive and had a solution for each bump along the way. We sold our house quickly and at a price we were very happy with

Spryan00 - November 30, 2016

Nancy Kennedy is a pro. She has spent her entire adult life working in real estate and she knows the business inside out. I hired her to sell my house. When it came time to negotiate, she knew exactly what to do and we were happy with the results. I would hire her in a minute if I were buying a  house, because her experience would be invaluable in understanding all the possible problems and pitfalls to avoid when seeing particular homes. Very pleased

Norma808 - December 14, 2016

Nancy's office was simply amazing especially, Colleen Coxen. Colleen stayed on top of the process from the initial consultation  through to the closing. She placed the house on the market on a Thursday and within two days we had two offers very close to the asking price and within a week we had signed contracts. Despite numerous hurdles resulting from the sale of an old house in need of some repair, Colleen navigated our way through these hurdles with minimal disruption. I highly recommend Nancy Kennedy's office for any purchase or sale.

Davidgkelton - August 18, 2015

Ms.Kennedy knows our area extremely well. Before putting our home up for sale, we asked her what work we should do to do to maximize our asking price.

She was spot on. Everything she suggested turned our 40+ year home into a sparkler.

When it finally went on the market, we had competing bids within the 1st week. We chose one, and had a contract drawn up within a week.

Add her integrity and honesty to the above experience, and one couldn't find a better agent.

We sold and bought our homes with Megan Coxen and the Nancy Kennedy team. Megan is a committed, reliable and knowledgeable real estate agent. We have three young children at home and Megan always accommodated us and made showings realistic and minimally disruptive. We truly cannot say enough  positive things about Megan! Her friendly attitude and ability to help out with just about anything (from where to buy a house, to filing STAR tax forms, to hiring a painter!) go above and beyond her duties as a realtor. She truly cares about each of her clients and wants to see them as happy as possible. We highly recommend Megan and the entire Nancy Kennedy team!

When you need something of significance addressed, and are fortunate enough to wander upon someone with the knowledge and integrity that Nancy Kennedy contains in the real estate market, it sends a ray of hope, at a difficult time. I had the utmost confidence in Nancy Kennedy and her excellent  staff and am very pleased with the outcome - "the proof is in the pudding."

ActPlays - July 24, 2015

Nancy was professional and efficient. She got the job done and well! She was a pleasure to work with to sell our house. We would recommend her to anyone in the Westchester Area.

Tom - July 24, 2015

Met agent at 1st candidate apartment. It was close but not exactly what I wanted.. I explained all my concerns during that meeting and one week later got the call that resulted in a better-than-perfection result. Thanks again, Nancy Kennedy!

Kevin - January 23, 2013

Heros. All of them! Nancy, Colleen and the rest of this excellent team went out of their way for me at every phase of the home-sale process. They are honest in their helping to establish price and timing. Their integrity is unquestionable -- all their focus was on selling my home for me. When problems arose at the last minute, they rescued me from a bad situation. I forgot to have the well tested and they arranged to have this accomplished immediately before closing; ditto a problem involving open town permits that they arranged to have re-inspected and closed practically over night. They worked closely and smoothly with my real-estate lawyers. In a down market, they were an uplifting force. I will always be grateful for their efforts on my behalf

L. Marks - January 4, 2013

Nancy and her team where excellent and always there for many ups and downs. They were very responsive. Our listing provided many challenges and they met them and guided us through to a successful conclusion

- October 7, 2014

We chose Nancy Kennedy and her team to help sell our home after we were unsuccessful trying ourselves. She guided us through the process with patience and never wavered in her confidence that she would sell the house. Our experience was going so well, we also used Nancy Kennedy as our realtor in buying our new house. She kept our needs and wants in mind and showed us every house that may be a good fit. Her knowledge of the current market was extremely helpful. While going through the stages of purchasing our "dream home", we were met with some very difficult circumstances. At no time did we feel alone in this, the Nancy Kennedy team was supportive and helpful throughout. They found us a short-term rental home and made it work for a longer time frame when we needed it. They pushed forward when we were at a standstill and celebrated with us when we finally closed. In our opinion, there is no match to Nancy Kennedy and we will never use anyone else.

I have worked with Nancy and her team for over fourteen years. I have always been treated like their most important client and they have been consistent in providing excellent service throughout the years. Their knowledge of the market and ability to buy/sell properties is top notch. If you want to work with professionals who can get the job done quickly, reliably, and with your best interests in mind, look no further than Nancy and her team.

- August 4, 2014

Nancy and her team took care of everything and quickly. She recommended the list price based on her knowledge of the market and got us a great deal. She and her team also handled communications with the seller's lawyers and my lawyer and kept me in the loop.

- November 10, 2014

Incredibly professional, a wealth of knowledge, extremely helpful, candid and honest in helping us navigate buying a home for the first time. After closing, continues to available to answer questions and offer expertise on the area we bought in.

- September 2, 2014

Nancy Kennedy is the "real estate professional". Nancy helped us to price our home at a level that provided a return we thought was reasonable and would be attractive to prospective buyers. Our house received adequate interest from serious buyers. Once an offer was received, she helped guide both buyer and seller to a mutually acceptable price. She handled all issues and requests up through closing in a professional and timely manner.

from start to finish nancy went above and beyond our expectations we sold our house in croton on hudson new york that we inherited from our uncle. since we live in pittsburgh pa. we obviously could not be in new york more than once during the process. Nancy and her associates made the process stress-free and easy. we could not have asked for a more professional and efficient realtor. Thank you Nancy Kennedy. Eric and Laura Delliquadri

Eric & Laura Delliquadri - August 20, 2013

Can't get better service anywhere; her entire team is top notch. She is number #1 for a reason. Experience and expertise shows in everything that she does. She listens and expedites. Always returns calls and emails. A+++++++

- November 10, 2014

Stayed the course on a drawn out process and guided us to a successful close.  Her experience is invaluable.

T Glover - May 16, 2014

When buying a house, you really need the best broker that you can find - and that's Nancy (just look at all the houses she's worked on, her experience is tremendous).  She's super friendly, kind, accommodating, and incredibly knowledgeable about the area.  I think most important, and something you can only get with decades of experience, is her keen negotiating skills (and intimate sense of the market). She helped my wife and I find our dream house very quickly.

J Hervold - February 4, 2014

Nancy sold our home quickly and helped us purchase our new home.  Both Nancy and her team are amazing.  They are quick to respond and make every effort to understand their client and know their needs.  I don't think there is a realtor that knows the Croton market like Nancy.  I wouldn't use anyone else!

Phil Spagnoli - November 18, 2013
