Kevin Knightly - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I bought my first property in Medford with Kevin Knightly acting for me in the purchase process.

He calmly guided me through to the closing. I was very nervous and looked at everything with anxiety being new to the process. Kevin was always available in good humor to assure me that everything was going to plan ! Later I asked Kevin to help me with purchasing a Brighton multi-family, he acted as my Agent again, this time my Bank Attorney gave the OK even though there was a slight but potentially problematic title issue. Kevin advised me not to go forward unless it was resolved but I really wanted the place so he introduced me to a Real Estate Attorney who with the Sellers’ Attorney took a number of months to clear up the problem. Kevin stood by me throughout and I’m glad that I listened to him. Now he has acted as my Listing Agent for the sale of that first property and even though I would have accepted less, I listened to him and he brought me the best offer I could ever have imagined!

In the past thirty one years, my husband and I have bought and sold seven homes.

During that time, we have been fortunate to make the acquaintance of several very good real estate agents. In all honesty, not a one of them can measure up to the standard of professionalism that we encountered during the sale of our home with Kevin Knightly. Kevin gave the utmost care to the entire transaction, from the expert initial listing, to the brokering with buyers, and remained steadfast to the closing and beyond, as he even generously offered to pick up our closing papers and deliver them to us the following day. Throughout the process, he was extremely knowledgeable, patient, honest, and remained a rock of support to guide us through the sale. We felt very secure knowing that the sale of our home was in his capable hands and we would not hesitate a second to call him again. Kathleen and Michael O'B Somerville

My wife put her Arlington Condo for sale with an Agent for a lower commission.

This agent told us he would be having a couple of Open Houses, needless to say he showed the property once and informed us that we would have Open House the next week. This did not happen. The lack of communication & updates from this Agent frustrated us so much that we cancelled and engaged a more reputable Real Estate Company. This also proved very frustrating after an offer which was received was subject to us renting out the Condo to the prospective Buyer for a period of 2 ½ months pending Bank Approval (We were assured by this Listing Agent that the funds were available and the Bank had issued a pre-approval letter).Eventually, the prospective Buyer gave us a 30 day notice to Quit and leave the Condo as she could not get the funds ! With a 6month record of false promises and guarantees by 2 different Realtors we cancelled the listing again. As luck would have it we met Kevin Knightly, upon learning his background we immediately requested that he take on the listing of our Condo. Kevin is very knowledgeable in all aspects of Realty and he kept us informed daily as progress was been made. He had an Open House the first week (in bad snow weather), a number of days later and he came back to us, to our disbelief, with 2 firm offers. He walked us through to the closing and made everything so easy for us that we now refer all our family and friends to Kevin. He is the nicest person in the world to deal with and we are only too happy to submit this testimonial on his behalf. Gerry and Caroline M

We bought our house in Walpole with Kevin Knightly as our realtor.

We found it a very positive experience from the planning phase to the closing day. As first time home buyers and entirely new to the mortgage process, Kevin Knightly made himself readily available to answer any of our questions, many of them multiple times. The stressful mortgage experience was less daunting with Kevin's advice. He also introduced us to a trustworthy mortgage agent, which helped the lengthy process along and we felt to have received solid financial advice. Kevin's accessibility by phone and email was something, we did not take for granted. The paperwork was passed along complete and in a timely manner. From our decision to apply for the house in December , we had the mortgage established in January and closed on it at the end of February . Should we decide to sell or buy another house in the future, we would not hesitate to ask Kevin Knightly for his support and assistance again. Silvia and Nick O, Walpole

I met Kevin Knightly as the Listing Agent for the Cambridge property that I bought through my Buyers' Agent at the time.

His professional, pleasant manner and demonstrated integrity encouraged me to approach him when I was planning to make a further purchase in Cambridge which he handled calmly, competently and professionally. Always approachable and responsive he seldom let anything go to voicemail and was back within minutes if he did. Indeed in deciding to sell one of my Cambridge properties he acted again for me , his advice , quiet tenacious style and years of experience in the real estate business achieved a sale price way beyond my own expectations. I found him to be the kind of broker who invests his time and resources into human relationships rather than solely in expensive marketing and glossy brochures. I wholeheartedly recommend Kevin to anyone wishing for real estate advice. I know that their experience will be as positive as mine. H.Marie D, Cambridge

We bought our first home with Kevin in Medford.

He style is re-assuring and inspires confidence, we found this great as we were inexperienced Buyers.He kept us happy by never allowing anything to be a surprise, he explained everything. Years later we approached him for an investment property, he spent time with us seeking out our best possible choice in Somerville, it has proved an extremely shrewd investment thanks to Kevin. Recently our growing teenage children led us back to Kevin.He successfully sold our original home for a great price and helped us navigate a multiple bid process as a Buyer Agent, allowing us to successfully buy our new larger home. What on paper was a nerve racking proposition, selling and buying the family home, never was a reality with Kevin who was our great advocate, we never fail to recommend him to friends and family because of our continued only excellent experience with him.

Recently I decided to purchase a new home and I enlisted the help of Kevin Knightly.

To say that I received amazing service would be an understatement. He truly is a top-notch real estate professional and should I need to buy or sell a home in the future I will absolutely work with Kevin again. Kevin works extremely hard to leave all of his clients happy with their experience. In addition to helping me, he helped my parents find their perfect home when moving from Medford to Wakefield and he helped my brother find his perfect home when moving to Saugus. My mother, father, and brother have always spoken very highly of the tremendous service they received from Kevin, and after following in their footsteps, I can see that their glowing recommendations were spot on. To Kevin, you’re not just another client, you’re a friend. Kevin goes out of his way to ensure that his clients do not just find any home, but that they find the perfect home for them. Kevin took the time to get to know me as a person, understand what I was looking for and offer ideas and suggestions along the way. All the advice he provided me was tailored to my specific case, needs and desires. Kevin never pressured me or tried to influence my decisions. Instead, he always asked what I thought about each property and encouraged me to take my time and think. By the end of my transaction, I felt that Kevin knew me better than I knew myself! Buying a house can be an extremely overwhelming and confusing process, and Kevin stayed right by my side through the entire process making sure that I understood everything that went on, was comfortable with everything that occurred, and most importantly, that I was happy. He navigated me through the entire process comfortably and seamlessly. Any time I had questions (and I had many!) Kevin always answered them promptly and thoroughly. He helped calm my anxiety numerous times and handled every conversation we had professionally, positively and kindly. He never became frustrated with the questions I asked, my indecision, or the length of time it took for me to find my house. He supported me in every capacity and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with him. Thank you for everything Kevin! Amy C, Peabody
