Will is awesome! He's a great realtor and is extremely knowledgeable in everything he does. If it can happen, he already knows and knows how to fix it! I highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. I will definitely use him again.

Wow, we were blown away with by Will's performance, he far exceeded our expectations. We interviewed three high achieving and highly rated listing agents and Will's plan was the most detailed and his marketing strategies made the most sense. So we decided to use him, and good thing we did, he priced it dead on, we received a 99%+ offer price within 5 days of listing, and closed on the house 30 days later. Will was extremely helpful in discussing our options, helping us understand the buyer's ability to close, and he was in constant communication with everything that went on throughout the process. I wish I could add stars to Zillow's rating system. Thank you so much Will, you made the entire process enjoyable and you exceeded all of our expectations. We are recommending him to everyone we know that is thinking of selling their house. AWESOME, that sums it all up. Less ... More

Will was very professional and confident throughout the entire process. He offered his expertise as needed. My mother-in-law passed away and her house had to be sold. The biggest complication is that my husband and I live in a different state. Will made the process as easy as possible for us. There was an interested buyer immediately after putting the house on the market and Will was able to sell it and complete the process within two months. This confirmed that we made the right choice in choosing Will for the job. Less ... More

After listing my house at a price that was not competitive with the market for 4 months with another local realtor, I hired Mr.Penney. He made an honest assessment of the property with me that was reasonable and very reflective of his knowledge of the area and property values. We came to a price for the house that was in place with the Housing market in Silver Lake and the house sold in a matter of days. From first impression to final closing, Mr. Penney communicated frequently and effectively with me as a new seller pointing out issues and superlatives in a very effective and respectful way. The icing on the cake was the closing with much less paperwork than I anticipated. I would recommend Mr. Penney for your realtor needs if you enjoy straight forward, efficient,honest dealings for your home sales. Less ... More

We used Will to help us identify and buy a great little Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio rental property, and then soon after help us sell my deceased mother's home in West Akron. Both transactions went much faster than anticipated, in fact we sold the West Akron home in two days. It was priced to sell and we secured the asking sales price. Great professionalism, response and local market knowledge all combined to make these two transaction go along just great. Would highly recommend Will and his crew if you are looking to buy/sell in the Greater Akron area. Jim & Cheryl NIlsen Less ... More

Family and friends highly recommended Will so we gave him a call. After talking with him, we knew he was the realtor for us. This was the first time we sold a house and Will was very helpful. He answered all of our questions without hesitation. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. Will was also our realtor for the new house that we purchased. We really felt he had our best interests in mind. He knew what we wanted and helped us get it. If you are buying or selling, Will should be the one you call! Less ... More

We strongly recommended Will Penney. A smooth process for first time home sellers. We were looking to sell our first house and did not know any realtors in the area. After asking people who they would recommend, no one really loved their realtor in the past. So, as with everything else, we Googled and came across Will Penney's reviews on Zillow. We were surprised by all the positive reviews and decided to give him a call and see what he was all about. From the very start of the process, Will was polite, courteous and very professional. After our first meeting, both my wife and I agreed we wouldn't need to seek out another option - we were 'sold' on Will. I'm a numbers guy, so when it came time to price the house, I was very glad he came with facts. There was no hidden agenda and we could clearly see why he chose the opening price point. His colleague, Tina, was fantastic in taking pictures of the house. Honestly, both my wife and I agree, that those photos were the best in terms of showing the house than any of the ones we have taken in the past. She too was very polite and very knowledgeable about how to make our house shine on the internet. Throughout the month long process it took to sell our house (yes, only 30 days), both Will and Tina were a phone call or text away. They always were quick to reply back to us - being our first time selling a house, we had numerous questions and never once did we feel like we were bothering them. The closing process went great - a small hiccup due to the buyer's lender caused a slight delay, but Will was on top of everything. Calling the buyer's agent and the title company to keep me updated - I was never left questioning "what's going on". I'll admit, I had fears about the whole 'selling the house; process - I had heard some horror stories from people - but this was a carefree process for us. If you end up reading my review out of the other 100+ that Will has here on Zillow - please take my recommendation in using Will - you will not be disappointed. Less ... More

As first time home-buyers, we entered the market still uncertain of what we wanted in a home. Nevertheless, Will remained patient with our indecisiveness. Will's knowledge and willingness to give his time to discuss pros/cons were very appreciated over the course of the first few months. He prompted us to think through all we wanted, while always keeping our best interest in mind. We felt that he truly wanted us to find the right home. He guided us through the purchasing process and remained extremely responsive the entire time. We LOVE our new home and cannot wait to settle in. There is no doubt Will Penney earned every single one of these five stars! Less ... More

I recently moved from San Francisco to the Cleveland/Akron area. My wife found Will on Zillow and seeing his 5-star rating, we made contact and thus began our relationship. My wife, 2yr old and I made a trip to OH just before Thanksgiving ?13 and Will helped us schedule a dozen houses to see on a Saturday. We began seeing houses and Will?s temperament and personality was quickly, obviously different than any realtor I?d dealt with in that he talks about the houses you see in a buyer?s terms with no sugar coating. I was used to being told how great this house would be for me (I was used to being sold on a property by my agent). Will?s approach was different and he genuinely wanted me to find my right house. As an example of this type of guidance? about our favorite web-found house for that trip, Will?s comment colored his dislike of the curb-appeal of that house (?that house is ugly?). It was this type of familial honesty and genuine desire to see our best interests served that we knew Will was our guy. We needed to make another house-searching trip and so made a difficult plan for my 4mo pregnant wife to take the red-eye from CA to OH to see houses and fly home the same day. Will precisely scheduled a 15-house viewing day for her and I was occasionally Skyped in. Will even drove my wife to the airport that evening for her to catch a plane home. We are now living in one of the houses my wife saw that day. Will guided us through the offer-making process. We had two houses we?d be happy to live in and he was able to use the leverage of the options to get to the price we wanted to pay and locked it down. Will also helped us make other home-buying connections like mortgage lenders and home inspectors and our experience with each of those folks was 5-star as well. Will works with other folks who are excellent at their crafts. As an example, my father was gracious enough to attend the home inspection, while I was in CA. My dad has extensive home building and construction experience and while walking the house with the home inspector that Will had recommended, my Dad was completely impressed with the inspector?s knowledge and thoroughness. Made me feel very good and added to the trust I put in Will. Throughout the search and purchase process, we were thousands of miles away. We relied on Will for all our information and we contacted him at all types of odd hours; mostly through text message. And without fail, Will responded to every inquiry immediately and comprehensively. Throughout the course of house shopping and buying, Will met a cousin, met my father and each family member had great things to say. My cousin said ?I love him,? my dad said ?what are you paying that guy that he?s such a warrior for you? (referring to his negotiating with the seller throughout the final walkthrough). A combination of his wit, charm and honesty, I couldn?t have found a better guide, advisor and realtor. My wife has already informed Will very plainly he will be the listing agent on this house when we next move. Responsive, knowledgeable, connected, effective, savvy negotiator, observant, warrior-for-his-clients. I experienced 5-star service from a 5-star realtor and am very happy to be writing this review as I sit in my dream home. Less ... More

We had listed our house twice before finding Will Penney with no success and with much frustration with our previous realtors. With the help of Will we sold our house and were able to move forward with our lives when we were on the edge of ruining our credit . We had a tricky situation, we had moved out of state with no family or real friends around to help us with the house and a huge decrease in the property value. Will was helpful with everything, even the little details by helping us find a really good person to clean the house. When the weather turned colder he helped us be sure that the pipes didn't freeze and that furnace was working properly. Not only that he gave us sound advice every step of the way on how to price the house and what should be done. When we were given an offer that was too low he fought with us to insure that we got all we could by using his knowledge of the area to negotiate. I found him on Zillow by his reviews and I would suggest you use him and his team if you are looking for someone to help you sell your home. I am sure that they are superior in helping you find the home or property you are looking for. We are grateful for their help and HIGHLY recommend them! Less ... More

Short version: You want Will Penney to list your house. Detail version: Will got our house sold in a market that worsened significantly soon after we listed. He also helped us negotiate a sale after some unexpected issues with the property were discovered during the inspection process. He worked extensively with us (sellers), the buyer's agent, and my company relocation representatives to craft a deal that was fair and acceptable to all three parties. It is very unlikely we would have a sale at all without Will's help, and we certainly wouldn't have been as satisfied as we are. Will's associate Tina was also integral to the success of the process, and the many communications we had with her were prompt, friendly, and very practical. Less ... More

Will was great from the very beginning and all the way to the very end! My wife had seen an estate sale on zillow and they dont last long so we wanted to see it that day. I had found will on zillow and read some of the reviews which were very accurate and helpful. Will was able to get a showing on that house later that evening and we put a bid on it that same night. We had some issues along the way with the bank which is for another day. We were getting an FHA loan so there were some issues with the house that needed resolved. Will was able to get all of them worked out for us whether it was getting us the info we needed or calling and organizing an inspection himself.

Will was great. He gave me a fair and very detailed assessment of my house, brought a couple dozen comps for comparison and we came up with a fair asking price. He helped me set up the house for showings with some good staging advice, Tina stopped by to take some pictures that almost made me want the house again, and the house sold in under two weeks with very little negotiation even being well into the school year, well past prime selling season. The house he helped me buy was a lot more challenging. The decor is mostly 40 years old, and there were some other issues (mostly small ones, but a number of them), none of which scared me, but the asking price was way too high considering all of them. Throughout all of the negations we were exactly in line. I'd think of a number and he came up with the same number. We worked out the negation with the seller, and even though I was probably a little too anxious to get into the house I still feel like got a pretty good deal. If you have ever dealt with other "pros" in any field, here are some things you will understand that make Will a standou: I never had to call twice. My opinions were always valid. If my assumptions or facts were wrong they were corrected with good explainations. All of my concerns were addressed. If he didn't have expertise regarding any important issues, he readily admitted it and referred me to experts, for which he has some pretty good contacts. And he checked with me regularly to make sure I was satisfied with his work. If he is still in the business when I need to sell or buy again, I will look him up. Less ... More

No problems and everything went very smoothly. Always responded to messages within 24 hours, and kept the whole process very concise and pleasant. Also, the suggestions that he made during the first consultation were very valuable and help a lot. For example, he suggested paying for and obtaining a home inspection so that we could gauge and fix all the issue that would be presented to the potential buyers. This save a lot of possible lost time so that we could focus on just selling the house. Less ... More

Will and his staff were wonderful! After 7 months of my husband and I looking and having troubles with the other realty company's finance department we were at the point of not looking anymore. My cousin told us about Will Penney. We had our first meeting with Will and explained to him what had happened. By the end of our first meeting he had set us up with a finance person and off we went. Rebecca was so patient with us and took us out to every house we wanted to see. By the way, we love Rebecca! She would point out the good and bad in the all the houses even the stuff we didn't notice. They were concerned with what was best for us and helped us every step of the way. When it came down for us to make an offer Will would tell us what he thought the house was worth. Instead of us trying to figure out what a good offer and doing all the leg work Will did that for us. It was wonderful knowing that we were in good hands and they were LOOKING OUT FOR US not worrying about selling a house. They truly care about their clients!

My wife and I found Will right here on zillow. He had great reviews so we thought we would give him a shot. We are really glad we did! He helped us right from the beginning by really leveling with us about what we needed and what would be good for our future. He is one of the most professional and on the ball people I have met in a long time. He actually talked us out of purchasing a home that was too high when I have no doubt most realtors would have not. That home did end up being ours but for the right price after Will negotiated.

My wife and I are extremely pleased with Will's attention to detail, knowledge and accessability. Purchasing our new home went on without a hitch thanks to Will's ongoing oversight and timely intervention. We are also using Will to sell our current home and have been equally pleased to date with his expertise and willingness to take on any obsticles on our behalf. I would strongly recommend Will Penney to anyone buying or selling a home. Thanks Will.

Will Penny took such ownership and personal interest in my situation than I felt like I was his only client. Nothing feels as comforting as a professional who empathizes with you and is responsive through the entire buying process. I not only sold my house in a very timely manner, for a great price, but I made a friend and an ally in the process. Will excels in his job because he cares deeply about his clients and their success.

I have known Will for nearly a decade. During that time, Will has helped me with multiple home purchases and sales. Most recently I purchased a home in Hudson not far from my previous home. I had very specific wants for my new home and Will did an exemplary job at not only meeting those wants, but exceeding my expectations. I trust Will's knowledge and appreciate his thoughtful advice. I intend to call Will the next time I'm in the market for a new home. Thanks for your help Will. Steve Hawthorne Less ... More

I went with him to sell my house in February of 2013. I found him to be very pushy and rude. I really believe the only reason he sells is because he low balls the price and then bullies the seller every two weeks to reduce the price. I had agreed to sell the house at his suggested price. Although I thought it was extremely low for the way the house was and the neighborhood, he insisted it would not sell at what I thought it was worth. Within 2 weeks he called and said we have to make a price reduction. When I questioned it he became very rude and basically said I had no chance of selling it. Two weeks later the same thing happened. Anyone can sell any house if the price is low enough. I just felt he was very arrogant and he would constantly talk about how much he has sold. It was an unpleasant experience. Less ... More

Thank you for taking the time to let me know about your feelings. I take feedback like this very seriously. As you can see by my other reviews, my goal is always to be a man of excellence. Unfortunately I fell short with you, and for that I apologize. In this market, where there are many competing homes at any given time, it is imperative that a home is priced right from the beginning. Otherwise, as time goes by, buyers will pass over the home because they think something is wrong with it or that no one else wants it. When that happens, we get low offers or no offers. I have been doing this for a long time, and I'm very confident about the market and pricing. I also work hard to make sure that I communicate my thoughts and opinions to my clients so that they are kept in the loop. I am really sorry if you felt like my constant communication and suggestions were self serving. That was not my intent. I will use your review to improve the service I provide others in the future.

When my wife and I were looking to buy our first home, I looked on Zillow to find an agent. Will's profile showed the most positive ratings, so we set up a meeting with him. My first impression was this guy "will get the job done". My instincts were correct. The best part about Will is he immediately returns any phone calls/emails within minutes (called many times). If a new house popped up on the market, Will set-up showings and had us see the house that same day. Since most of the good houses in Aurora go off the market in days, this trait was essential. Our house had multiple offers within two days (all offers were equal), and Will took extra steps to make our offer stand out. Because of his extra efforts, we now live in the house. Conclusion: Will is the best at what he does and you will not be disappointed. Less ... More

This was my first home purchase, and I had heard many stories about nightmare home buying experiences. Needless to say I was a bit intimidated by the whole process due to limited knowledge and the stories I had heard. I was referred to Will by a friend of mine, and I feel truly fortunate that he was my first contact in this undertaking. He knew/appreciated/respected my time constraints and went out of his way to accommodate. Having someone who has been established in Stow was a blessing...i told him what i wanted and he knew right where to look. In looking at homes he was very helpful in pointing out things that could be an issue, things that I didn't know to look for and very knowledgeable in the realities of fixing these issues. The last thing I wanted was to get in over my head with problems I could not fix. When I found the home I wanted he had all of the contacts I needed to make things happen. As far as the paperwork process went, everything was quick and painless and thorough. And when we were getting close to closing time he went out of his way to stay in touch with people so we could expedite the process. Will is wonderful. I don't ever plan to move but if I do he will definitely be my realtor. And if any of my friends or family are in the market for a house, I will definitely pass along his name. Less ... More

By far the best realtor on the market! My wife and I had experienced some pretty horrifying experiences with other realtors in attempting to buy our first home. We tried the larger firms and the smaller firms with disappointing results. Very few would keep us in the loop, communicate regularly, or act in our best interest. After a few thousand dollars later and no house, we were disenfranchised with the prospect of home ownership and about to give up the dream? Enter Will Penney. Will treated us as human beings, communicated regularly with the medium of our choice (text, phone, e-mail), and met us outside of typical working hours. With two little ones and our picky criteria, we didn?t make it easy. Will took it all in stride, found our home, and worked with a highly complex purchase to make our dream a reality. I agree with the other comments I?ve read on Zillow. In short, if you?re looking for someone who cares about your situation, gives direct guidance, and helps you avoid missteps you need Will Penney. Two Month Update: We've had our house for just over two months and faced multiple challenges with unforeseen events. Will stayed with us and walked us through the home warranty process at times calling the warranty company for a quicker response time. Now that's service! Thanks for everything Will! Less ... More

The value of a realtor comes not in the listing and advertising of your property, nor scheduling buyer visits, but in their representation of your interests in the selling process. Will Penney did this in an excellent manner for us on the sale of our Hudson, Ohio home. We liked everything about the way the agency worked. Our relationship began about two years before they listed our property and casually grew to one of trust. The contacts we received during the ?get to know you? period were informal and informative and led to generating that trust. When challenges and issues occurred in the sales process with our potential buyer, Will was there with appropriate and correct advice, as well as support. If an issue with our house needed to be remedied, Will had a contact. If we needed information, Will had a contact. And when we talked with the contacts he gave us, they very quickly worked us into their schedule and handled our issues and questions. When our potential buyer became unreasonably demanding, Will had the courage and fortitude to say what had to be said, when it was most needed. His firm and fair representation of our interest held the deal together. This is the true value of the seller?s agent. We found that the selling process is a difficult one, and we wouldn't go through it again unless absolutely necessary. But if we do, Will Penney will be our representative. Less ... More

Will Penney however showed true professionalism and dedicatioin in manuvering through every challenge. He stayed on top of the process and ensured that all our paperwork was complete and turned in on time. He also pushed the bank to ensure they met all our deadlines.

Will made the process of selling my home so easy. It was stressful looking for a new home and a new location for my home based business. Will took all the stress out of the sale so that I could focus on taking my business out of my home and on finding a condo to rent. Business is already growing quickly and I owe that in part to how easy Will has made this transition. I wouldn't use anyone else when buying or selling a home.

If you are looking for a realtor that will get things done and get your house sold, call Will. He is direct and to the point, and will stick to what he says. He was always available when we needed him from listing to closing, which was pretty quick in our case. He listed our house, and three days later, we were under contract. Once under contract, Will didn't bail. He was a great negotiator getting us the full listing price, only giving up a small concession at closing. If you want a realtor that will sit down for a cup of tea and tell you how special you are while your house sits on the market for a year, pick somebody else. If you want to get your house sold and get what you deserve, go with Will. Less ... More

I have used Will Penney twice to sell a home. When my mother passed away he sold her house in Cuyahoga Falls in 12 hours from the time it listed on the market. We recently moved from Wadsworth to Seville and he sold our home in Wadsworth within two months. I have come to know Will as a no nonsense, no BS type of person. I like that. He told us what we needed to do and he priced our houses at a fair market price for the areas and he sold our houses. He has great knowledge of the real estate market and is a very good negotiator who works hard for and with his clients. I would highly recommend to anyone selling a home to contact Will Penney and use his services. I don't plan on moving again, but if I did have a need to sell a home I would contact Will again. After dealing with him with my mother's house, when we decided to sell in Wadsworth, I did not even think about talking to any other realator and called Will immediately.

We retained Will's services after listing with another realtor for 6 months. We actually received an offer within 3 days from a buyer that had originally viewed our home under our first realtor. Will was very helpful in negotiating the best offer and we reached a satisfactory offer for close to our asking price after 3 rounds of offers. Will was especially helpful during the closing process as our initial closing date was delayed for 3 weeks and then again for a few days near the end due to issues with the buyers switching lenders. During these delays Will was helpful in giving advice in how we should deal with requests from the buyer and also in keeping in close and consistent contact with both lenders to make sure that everything was progressing. Throughout the entire process with Will he was always quick to respond to questions and concerns via phone,email or text.

After accepting a new job out of state, we called Will to sell our home. We wanted our home to sell quickly and for a reasonable price based on market value. He was able to sell our home even after we moved. He communicated with us on a regular basis, walked us through the entire process step by step, negotiated a fair and reasonable offer for us, and kept us up to date every step of the way. We had great traffic through our home throughout the time it was on the market. We were very satisfied with Will's work and would highly recommend him. He has even offered to help us find a realtor in our new location to assist with our next home purchase. Less ... More

Will was hands down the best realtor to work with. He went above and beyond what any other realtor would have done for me. He genuinely cares that you are being taken care of throughout the entire process. I am a first time home buyer and it was so simple and I trusted him completely. His knowledge and expertise in our local market is by far the best.

Will is a very experienced realtor who knows the area and will be able to narrow your search to your needs and wants. He speaks very much to the point and definitely will work for your best interest. Will was able to accomodate our tight schedule and show us tons of listings in our price range and area we wanted to live in. I know we will use him in the future if we ever sell and I will definitely recommend him to others moving to the area. He is the agent you want on your side of the table during negotiations! Less ...

We recently purchased our new home with Will Penney as our buyers agent and we couldnt be happier with the results. The whole experience from the beginning of our search until even after we moved into our new home was very pleasant. Will familiarized himself with our situation and specific search criteria and helped us find a great home in a great location. His knowledge of the real estate market, patience with us, and promptness in showing us new listings made all the difference. We highly recommend Will Penneys services and we would not hesitate to work with him again. Less ... More

As a first-time homebuyer, I had a lot of questions. Will took the time to walk me through the process and answer every question I had. During the process of buying a foreclosed home, Will went the extra mile to ensure all parties were doing their part to meet deadlines and keeping me informed at every step of the process. I highly recommend Will for buying a home in the area he serves.

"I don't mean to brag but this is the best house in the price range.." That was the opening sentence in the description Will wrote for our home. We had an offer at asking price with in 3 days. When we first met Will we explained that with school starting we had limited time to sell our home, find and buy another and move. He took the time to understand our situation and what needed to happen. He let us know it could be done (we were doubtful) and how we could do it. He knew that we could start our kids in the new school system before we closed on our new house. He was very in tune with what we were looking for and the market and found a home for us before it was even put on the market. If you want sound business acumen, market knowledge and someone to take the reins with your best interests at heart, call Will. Less ... More

Will worked for us in many ways. He placed our home on many of the online real estate websites. Worked with other agents to promote our home. He offered advice on the selling price to get to a proper price to actually move our property. He suggested various things we should do to get our home in "showing" condition. Without these suggestions I believe our home would not have sold so quickly. When we got an offer he worked, through us, with the buyer's agent to finally get our home sold. He handled all of the details and explained these details to us about what we had to do next or what was going to happen with us as a seller. Less ... More

We strongly recommend Will Penney he was proactive through the whole process of selling our house. He never had to be chased or pushed to do anything.He was helpfull in finding contractors we needed to carry out small jobs needed to pass the house inspection. His knowledge and statistics of the housing market in our area was most impressive. His follow up after the sale was made went beyond what we expected.

When we decided to sell house we did not know where to begin. This was our first experience selling a home after living in the same house for 38 years. We talked to a few local realtors prior to Will. We had received a flyer from Will with some useful information about selling a home and that was the reason we called him. We did not know him at all before asking him to be our agent. We were quite impressed by his frank, straight-forward approach and his knowledge of the industry. He was approachable, available by phone or email whenever we needed to contact him. We are very pleased to say that our house was sold in a week, Thanks to Will. We would highly recommend Will to anyone. Less ... More

As first time home buyers, we wanted to make sure we went with the right real estate professional. We had met a couple other agents that didn't impress us before looking on Zillow. After reading Will's reviews I was pretty confident he was the right choice, and after meeting with him my husband and I knew without a doubt he was absolutely the guy for the job. Will's informative, no-nonsense approach made the decision making process much easier and home comparisons a no-brainer. Will helped us find an amazing house at a fantastic value in the exact location we were hoping for. Not only did Will stay in touch regularly, he provided us with great contacts for our mortgage lender and home inspector, and coordinated with the right people to get the job done in a very timely fashion. Will eliminated much of the stress I know I would have experienced with other realtors. He is a personable and trustworthy professional whom we would recommend to anyone. Thank you again Will! ~The Ryans Less ... More

Bought a really good house in Cuyahoga County. He did the research of the area and got me, ultimately, a 10.45% discount off of the list price of the house, which makes his negotiating skills incredible. He responded to everything I requested. He's a straight-shooter and tells it like it is. I highly recommend his work.
