"It’s easy to write this because I have nothing but the highest regards for Joe Kavanagh our realtor and every single person he put me in contact with. It was a pleasure and stressless operation from start to finish for my wife and I on our first home purchase. Joe is an exceptional asset to your team and we can’t thank him enough for all he did for us." - E.H.
“Good morning Joe, Cheryl and myself wanted to say thanks for the wonderful job you did selling our house. I have never worked with a realtor that is as responsive, informative, and reactive as you! When the opportunities arrive I will definitely refer You and Matt O’Neill realty to anyone I speak with!” - R.R.
"My husband and I went to an open house and stumbled upon Joe Kavanagh of Matt O'Neill who was covering the house for a friend. We were unsure if we even wanted to buy at the time and were just casually looking, but we got such an honest, great vibe from Joe right from the beginning that we were certain we wanted Joe to be our guy! We ended up finding an awesome house, getting it for an excellent price, and Joe was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process! He always sent us listings exactly in the parameters we were looking for, was tremendously patient with my indecisiveness, and always followed up without ever being pushy. He was also able to put us in touch with knowledgeable lenders and insurance agents that I will always use moving forward. I do not have enough great things to say about Joe Kavanagh and everyone at Matt O'Neill!" - B.D.
