Will was an excellent asset to me throughout the home selling and purchasing process. Early on, he went out of his way to educate me in various things such as staging a home for sale and purchasing bank owned properties. My home was listed by him and sold in four days! Both he and his staff are very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable of the real estate business, including local area information, market trends and business connections that were invaluable to me. Overall, Will worked diligently to ensure a smooth process for me as I sold my home and purchased a new one. He is definitely someone you want on your side! Less ... More

I am not an easy person to work with because I have very high expectations of how things should be done and I ask a lot of questions along the way. Will sold our house in west Akron and helped us find (and then navigate the process when unexpected repairs popped up in the inspection) a new one in strongsville and was nothing but diligent the entire process. we have no plans of leaving our new house but if we ever do we will enlist will's help in selling it.

My mother's condo had to be sold & Penney Realty was the BEST! They work hard and get the job done! Both Will and Tina were knowledgeable and enthusiastic! They readily kept me informed of activities and patiently answered all of my questions. Will did a thorough search of comparable sales in the area and was able to discuss options about why some sold & others might not be selling. He listened to my needs and expectations to decide on a reasonable price and the condo sold in 2 to 3 weeks! I would highly recommend Penney Realty to anyone looking to sell property! I am extremely grateful to them for a fast and trouble-free transaction! Thank you Penney Realty!!! Less ... More

If you are looking for an honest, down-to-earth realtor that listens to your needs, look no further than Penney Real Estate. Will and Tina are top notch! They listen and work with you from start to finish and make sure your house hunting and selling process is seamless. We recently used Penney Real Estate to sell our home. They advised us on the staging process and our home sold in one day! Tina also found our dream home after many, many months of searching for the perfect house. She was very accessible and answered all of our questions. If you are looking for peace of mind and in the market to buy or sell a home be sure to give Will and Tina a call. You?ll be glad you did!

He aggressively marketed our home and did an outstanding job negotiating top dollar for our sale. He was always easy to reach and guided us through the process seamlessly.

Will was recomended to us by a freind when we decided to sell our house. Will came over, gave us the details about the entire selling process, he got us the local area sales realted to similar houses, he explained us the importance of correct pricing and how that would impact the sale and its timing. He also gave an upfront estimation of what gets involved, this eliminated the last minute surprises for us. As being a first time seller, I was panicky and didnt know what to expect. However Will gave me timely inputs and guided me thru the entire process. Less ... More

Both Tina White and Will Penney were very supportive in our pursuit of a new home. Having spent the last 23 years in our home we were not sure of the process and procedures that we needed to follow. Tina and WIll went WAY OVER the top to ensure that we were viewing homes in our comfort zone, ensured that we were making sound decisons as both buyers and sellers and really just walked and guided us through the whole process. Will and Tina both helped out in getting our existing home on the market - priced it to sell and had offers for us within 24 hours after it being listed. The rest of the process from inspection to closing was a snap and that was due to the professionalism and caring nature of the both of them. We worked real clsoe with Tina and she was just so wonderful and helped greatly with everything we needed or with any questions we had. We are so thrilled with the service that the Penney Real Estate Company provided and I would reccomend them to anyone who is in the pursuit of selling or buying a home. Thanks to BOTH WILL and Tina!

As first time home buyers, and being new to the area, we really needed an agent with local knowledge/experience and most of all , patience :) We found all of that and more with Will Penney Realty. Our agent, Tina White, went above and beyond to help us to find the perfect home for our family. She was available any time we needed her and answered all of our crazy questions (from proximity to oil storage tanks, concerns about asbestos , knob and tube wiring, etc.) We'd absolutely recommend Will Penney Realty to any other home buyers that are looking an experienced agent that feels more like working with a trusted friend.

We met with Will when we first thought of selling our house. He gave us an appraisal and said he would be available when we were ready. We decided to wait and called him back about one year later when we found a house we were interested in. We purchased our new house and we were able to get a great deal. When purchasing our new house, he assured us our old house would sell very quickly. The listing on our old house looked great and we had multiple showings a day. Our house sold in 11 days. It worked out just how he said it would. We are very happy with house quickly and professionally everything was handled. Less ... More

Will helped my partner and I navigate our first home purchase. From the moment that we met with Will, we knew that he was not only a great realtor but a great person. His no-nonsense approach and straightforward nature allowed for a very pleasant buying experience. Once we found our dream home, Will completely rearranged his schedule so that we could put in an offer before an upcoming open house. I can certainly say that without Will's assertive nature, we would have lost our dream home. We would certainly recommend Will to anyone searching for their dream home. Less ... More

We found a house quickly and Will respected our time as he understood our needs and what we were looking for. His recommendations were always appreciated and right.

My wife and I decided to move our family closer to where we both work due to the long commute. Our family is extremely busy and we knew that fitting a move into our life would have to be properly planned. We wanted to move in a particular timeframe due to the school year, minimize disruptions/ chaos to our family life, make sound decisions through the process and not look back with any regrets by making a mistake along the way. We chose Penney Real Estate Co. by their track record we found on Facebook, Zillow and their website. They delivered us a great result!! Will guided us through the process, made sure our expectations were met every step of the way and filled in our knowledge gaps of the real estate transaction. We confidently sold our home in 12 days over the list price and found our new dream home within the same time frame ? with no major setbacks along the way. When we describe the process/ outcome to our friends, family and coworkers, everyone tells us how incredibly lucky we were for everything to work out so well. It wasn?t luck at all - it was Penney Real Estate Co.!! Thank you! Less ... More

Will was recommended to us not only by friends, but our mortgage lender as well. Through the process of listing our home Will made time to come out several times and give us his honest opinion on listing our home and gave us plenty of time to get things ready, gave us tips on showing the home, and wanted to make sure our house was ready to show and we were ready for the process as well. As a result our house had multiple offers and sold in 3 days!!! When it came to finding our new home Will and his team were responsive to our questions as well as making time to show us homes on short notice, which made all of the difference when we found our new home. Will even went the extra mile to write the offer at 10:30pm to give us the best possibility of getting our new home. If you are looking for expertise and honesty without a pushy approach you need to call Penney Real Estate. I will be recommending anyone that I can to Penney Real Estate. Less ... More

Very good at what he does. This realtor doesn't fluff anything, he tells you like it is, which is what is needed to sell your home. He's not wasting your time or you wasting his. Also, him and Tina sends out a report of how many people are looking at your home, so you get an idea of the activity going on. I really liked this, and really appreciated it. Thanks Will and Tina.

He is very thorough and trustworthy when looking at houses. There is no sales pitch. If it's a piece of garbage and a waste of time, he will tell you.

I had a lot of flexibility about when to sell my older home in Cuyahoga Falls. Although I was hesitant to sell in the winter, Will used data on previous home sales and stock to show how the time of year could be an asset. Similarly, he used prior sales and listings in the area to help price the house. Will's advice throughout the process was excellent, as were his negotiating skills. He also had contacts with area businesses that made the minor repairs needed to my house easy and fast. Home selling is stressful, even with the best people helping you. But with Will, it was much less stressful, and much, much faster than I thought it would be. My 90-year old home had a contract in under two weeks and closed early (which was my preference). I highly recommend him. Less ... More

As a first time home buyer, the home buying process can be overwhelming and intimidating. Will did a wonderful job alleviating any worries I had by taking over all the little tasks a first time home buyer normally wouldn't know about. The time between finding the house and moving in was only 30 days, which was amazing and very helpful. He made himself available 24/7, even writing the offer for the house after 10 p.m. I would definitely reccomend him to anyone buying a house.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
While my husband and I did decide not to list our house at this time, Will was very knowledgeable about our area. He knew what a reasonable listing price for our house would be as soon as he saw it and gave me reassurance that if we did decide to sell we could get what we needed for it. If you look at what his listing prices are compared to the sale prices, it was very obvious that he knew what to list a house at. I knew if he thought we could get a certain amount out of the sale, we would. He was punctual, communicative and personable. I also appreciated that he encouraged us to get all inspections up front so there would be no surprises in the negotiating process. No doubt this would have sped up the sale and made things go more smoothly. He was confident in his abilities without seeming arrogant or pushy. Thank you! Less ... More

We contacted Will in May about putting our house on the market because we were moving to Florida in August. He gave us some suggestions that would make our home more appealing, thus more sellable. It made sense to put some effort and money into the house so it wouldn't be on the market long. He offered us a lot of encouragement along the way. It took us a while, but it went on the market in August, and he had a buyer in three weeks! He fought for us as the buyer's lender was really dragging the process and we had already moved. We would recommend Will to anyone trying to sell their home. He shot straight; telling us the truth we needed to here. Now we are more relaxed in our Florida home. Thank you Will!

Will is an honest, extremely knowledgeable and just all around FANTASTIC Realtor. We spent 2 months or so working with a prior Realtor only to give up in frustration and contacted Will who was recommended by another family. Best decision we ever made! Being a first time home buyer I was little confused on the process and knew little about the market, Will took the time to help my wife and I better understand the market and what we were looking at in our local area, values, price ranges etc. Within a few weeks (compared to few months!) he had helped us find the home we wanted! Through the whole process Will was right there on our side through negotiations, explaining what was happening and what come next all while getting the deal done! It didn't matter what time of day it was I could always contact Will and he'd have an answer for me (or within a few hours)! Even when we ran into altercations with the seller leaving the property, Will went above and beyond his responsibilities as a Realtor to help us every step of the way, trying to work out the situation with the sellers Realtor. Including offering a night stay in a hotel to the seller who in the end became uncooperative leaving the property in attempt help ease the situation and give us access to our newly purchased home! (Mind you she was not his client!!) I've never heard of any Realtor before going that distance for his/her clients. I would recommend Will and his team to ANY first time or other home buyer/sellers out there to use his services!!! He and team really are exceptional at what they do! Thanks Will for all you did for us during our home buying process, you will the first we contact if/when we sell! I would trust no other! Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
We interviewed several realtors to help us sell our condo and buy a larger home in the area. We decided to work with Will Penney not only because of the number of positive, authentic reviews but also his approach to selling homes. He provided real data about his listings - average days on market, final sale price - as well as broad expertise in key areas we needed - marketing our home, negotiating and financing. Surprisingly, his approach was different than the other realtors. Probably because he doesn't work for a realty company. His name and reputation are his business and he wants to make sure his clients have a top-notch experience. We sold our home at record speed - got an offer within hours of being on the market. When the offer appeared to go south, Will found another buyer with an even better offer. I'm confident that another realtor would not have been savvy enough to save the sale so that we could move on. Will did so in a day. We can't say enough about his buying agent, Rebecca. She was so accommodating and patient as we started to look at homes in a 3-4 county area. However, she wasn't just an escort to get us access into these potential listings. She provided level-headed guidance that helped us weed through potential properties to find our next new home. Today we are making the final move into our new home. It is only fitting to thank Will, Rebecca and their associates for a great experience. Less ... More

Will was extremely helpful from beginning to end! He helped us identify areas to begin searching for homes that would best be ideal; he took into consideration our work location, areas we are familiar with, and areas that would give us the best value. He was very flexible and worked around our busy work schedules. And considering we are such busy people, he still managed to find time to spend a whole day with us looking at houses. The best thing about Will is that he is super honest, he won't sugar coat anything, he will tell you straight up if he thinks the property you look at is a good value or not. Though this has been a stressful process for us, he had our back the whole time and really worked with the sellers agent to help us as much as possible! We went from potentially losing the house to getting the house for way under what we originally agreed to. Will was recommended to us by a friend and we definitely will be recommending him to our friends and family as well! Thank you Will for all your help, we truley appreciate it! Less ... More

We learned about Will through a friend of ours who had multiple experiences with him. We had our house listed with another area Realtor and were dissatisfied with the traffic and the communication we received from her, especially her tone. Throughout the whole process Will was incredible. We really felt like we were his only clients because of the amazing communication we received from him. Within 30 days of listing the house with Will it was sold. Two weeks after that we purchased a house that exceeded all of our expectations. I really appreciated the fact that Will added in an area that my husband and I were not considering because he understand what we were looking for, perhaps better than we did. If it wasn't for Will being so good at his job, we would still be looking for the right home, or worse yet, we would have settled for something less than ideal. Will is fantastic, and he has assembled a great team to assist you every step of the way. Thank you Will, Tina and Rebecca. We are thrilled with our results and the experience we had with all of you!

Worked with Will Penney and his team to sell our property in Akron. Not the best neighborhood, making it more difficult to sell the property. He was able to quickly and accurately come up with numbers. We were able to sell the property faster than I expected and for a decent price. I believe this is because of a well documented home with good pictures and description. When selling/buying one of the most expensive assets in your life, its important to have someone that you can trust and rely on. Less ... More

Will Penney and his team are true professionals. This is our second time working with Will. The first was 10 years ago when we purchased our first home. He made us feel so comfortable with the process that there was no question who we were going to call for the purchase of our next home. This time, Will and his team helped us to sell our East Akron home in LESS THAN TWO MONTHS (which is remarkable for the area) and then represented us for the purchase of our new home. Throughout the entire process, Will was reachable via email, phone, and text--- ALL OF THE TIME. Honestly, I don't even know if he sleeps. A text message or email sent after 10 pm was answered the same night! Selling our home: Will and his associates walked us through the process step-by-step and remained in constant communication. He gave specific staging pointers (which we followed to the letter) that I know aided in the quick sell of our home. He featured our house on Zillow, giving it a lot of exposure. When it came time to close the deal, he fought hard for us and got us the best selling price we could have hoped for. Purchasing our new home: Again, Will and his associates were there each step of the way. Even though we focused on an area out of his typical radius, he and his associates were very helpful and willing to drive the distance. When we discovered a house that we liked, we were able to get into see it within 24 hours- easy. Finally, we decided on a house that wanted. Will negotiated the price of the home to a number that was easily comfortable for us. Will really advocates for his clients! Even after we purchased our new home, Will was reachable and responsive to any need that we had, as well as calling and checking in on us after we moved in. Final Thoughts: Will Penney is truly invested in the happiness and well-being of his clients. He sees us as friends, giving us the best advice that any knowledgeable friend would give. He is not out to make a quick buck, he is all about quality of service. Will tries to get to know his clients on a more personal level. That may not seem important to some, but after speaking with other real-estate agents who do not even know what their clients do for a living, I personally see the value and investment Will puts into his clients. --In my opinion, this is what quality, client-centered service is about. We will definitely call upon Will Penney in the future and refer his services to friends and family. -- I cannot say enough nice things about Will and his team. ~Daysha L. Less ... More

Will was everything that we wanted from a Real Estate Professional. His willingness to negotiate, extensive market knowledge and consultative buying methodologies, puts Will in an elite professional category. We have been through both the purchasing and selling of multiple homes in the past, and we have never been involved with someone like Will. Real Estate is his business and how he provides for his family, which translates to why he is more of a trusted advisor versus the traditional transactional based Real Estate Agent. If you are looking for the right person to have a vested interested in both selling and buying a home, then Will Penney is your guy!

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.

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.

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

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 always responded to my questions promptly, he kept me within my budget and did not allow me to overextend my finances, and he handled and resolved any issues that arose. When I purchased a home, he walked me through the entire process, so that everything was done correctly. He is very knowledgeable about real estate, and I trusted him when making decisions on my purchase. I would recommend Will Penney to anyone either purchasing or selling their home. Less ... More

Will was great to work with. He kept us well informed always and made us comfortable during the selling process. His knowledge and advise proved priceless. This is the fourth time someone in my extended family has used Will, and it has been a pleasure every time.

Good all around company to deal with. Friendly, knowledgeable on product and people. Unlike many agencies, they were willing to work to obtain the best dollar when selling our home. Penney real estate is definitely a top notch firm. It was a pleasure to have had Will Penney as our agent. Looking forward to having Penney Real Estate list our next home.

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. All in all i would highly recommend Will to any homebuyer because he was definetly on top of his game!! Less ... More

My wife and I are living in CA and we were in the market for a home in NE OH. After considering our options, we decided to use Will as our agent. Will was very thorough, professional and considerate throughout the process. This was our first home buying experience and Will helped us with every aspect. His expertise and knowledge of the area were invaluable in our home buying experience. Will and his staff went the "extra mile" in order to make sure every detail was handled Buying a home can be a stressful and time consuming process. However, having Will as our agent made the entire process work out a lot smoother. I highly recommend him and his agency. We were very pleased with our home buying experience. Less ... More

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

He made selling our house easy. Not only did the house sell in 16 days but the process was a piece of cake. Will was educated the area, market conditions, how the market was trending, and had helpful information about moving. I would highly recommend Will Penney to anyone looking to sell a house or purchase a house.

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! We are so glad we had the opportunity to work with Will Penney and Rebecca! Thank you Will and Rebecca! Less ... More

I called Will when I was in the market to buy a house and he worked with me to find exactly what I was looking for. He is terrific! I would recommend Will for all your home selling/home buying needs. He is very knowledgeable. He explains everything that is taking place. He always returns phone calls, texts or e-mails. When I was selling my old house, he sold my house within 29 days with 22 showings, 5 second time showings, 2 offers and never had a sign in my front yard. I am very pleased with everything he did for me. Please consider Will Penney Realty for all your home buying/selling requirements. Less ... More
