Greg Kinnear's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Greg Kinnear

  • Greg listed and sold my home

      We first worked with Greg to buy our first home 12 years ago. We worked with Greg again 5 years later to sell the original property and purchase another. Later, when we moved out of Maryland he sold our house in less than two weeks in a very difficult market. He is very professional, provides excellent guidance, and knows the business. Once you have worked with Greg, it is hard to work with any other Real Estate Professional.

    • Greg helped me buy a home

        Greg is very knowledgeable about real estate in Howard County. He is also a great listener and helped to narrow down a very wide and varied list of needs and wants and we now live in a great house. He is attentive, available and very easy to work with. One of the best I have used.

      • Greg was quite knowledgeable and very helpful. He always returned our calls and answered all our questions promptly.

        - M. Foreman
      • Highly recommended. We've bought and sold homes a couple times with Greg Kinnear and are very happy. He and his team are professional and have great communication.

        - M. Cervi
      • With Greg's help, the sale and settlement of my mother's condo went very smoothly. He made it easy..

        - P. PASQUARELLA
      • Greg made the process of selling out townhouse very easy and smooth. He always made himself available whenever we had questions. I would be happy to recommend Greg to anyone in need of real estate services.

        - Pat Dobson
      • Greg is a top notch professional. He is experienced, knowledgeable and helped to ensure our real estate transaction went smoothly. I highly recommend him.

        - Linda Dobson
      • Greg Kinnear helped up list the property at a good price and when the offers came in guided us as to how to proceed. Everything was done efficiently and in a timely manner. I never had any problems contacting him if I had a question. I would definitely recommend Greg Kinnear and plan on using him in the future.

        - F. Airey
      • This was the first house I've ever sold and Greg made the process very easy. He had good advise on the market trends and presented the house well. Greg maintains a good solid list of contractors to make any repairs that may come up on the home inspection. He was responsive to my questions and concerns. The house sold and settled faster than I anticipated and I would recommend Greg and his team for any real estate needs.

        - Debra Wilkenloh
      • 2 years ago I listed my home for sale with an agent that was not Greg Kinnear. The house did not sell and the agent was a chore to deal with. This year I listed my home with Mr. Kinnear. The house sold for above the listing price and did so in roughly 4 days time. In addition to that dealing with Greg and the entire Kinnear team was an absolute delight every step of the way. Everything was convenient and well explained.

        - J. Ford
      • I cannot say enough good things about Greg and his team. They made the home selling process easy for us! Greg knows the market, is current on all aspects of the real estate business, and is awesome to work with. He provided relevant guidance on how best to prepare our house for sale, communicated clearly and regularly with us, and kept things moving seamlessly through closing. I highly recommend Greg as a realtor.

        - Joshua Smith
      • Greg I cannot thank you enough for all your help and assistance through this process. You have helped make a bittersweet moment- of stepping away from the only family home we really knew - very doable. From the delay in getting this moving to the assistance with all the signature issues with mom to the expertise and advice given along the way. You know we could not have done this (and felt so comfortable and relaxed) without you! We knew we were in good hands from the start based on the great job you did in working with mom through the selling of my aunts house. And, as we closed the process yesterday I just wanted to say a big THANKS!

        - Sharon Bogdan
      • He was professional, courteous, and kind in every way. He responded promptly to all of my concerns, and he handled every part of the process in an expert manner. While there were others on his staff who supported me, at no time was I "handed over" to staff and associates during the sale of my home. He was a complete real estate professional, and I would recommend him highly.

        - Brenda Mccauley
      • Excellent service, excellent results. We had toyed with the idea of selling on our own, but have no regrets. Greg's experience and advice at each stage of the process was extremely helpful - made the whole process as stress-free and smooth as possible.

        - Brian Gleeson
      • Greg is an excellent real estate agent. He is extremely responsive to all emails, phone calls and texts and gave prompt responses. As sellers, the process can be overwhelming at times and his advice and guidance made the process as stress-free as possible. Greg took our concerns seriously and was a true pleasure to work with. Thanks again for everything!

        - Michael and Lisa Peeler
      • Greg was very professional and helpful in the sale of our home. Our house sold in 2 days and Greg was key in the process from beginning to end. We highly recommend Greg!

        - J. Dreisch
      • Greg Kinnear provided exactly what we needed, that being an honest assessment of what we needed to do to sell our condo quickly and at a fair price. Thanks again, Greg!

        - J. Buck
      • This is my second home sales with Greg and both went so smoothly. I not only recommend him, I have been recommending him for 5 years. A buyer or seller couldn't be in better hands!

        - Gay Boles
      • I had been renting out my condo when my tenant abrubtly left. I did my research of the agents in the area because it was time to sell it. I read reviews and did interviews. I chose Greg and it was the best decision I made. He was by my side through the entire process from painting, renovations, staging, pricing, marketing, open houses, walk throughs and finally closing. Condos are not easy to sell and it takes an agent that knows the market and knows what he is doing to sell a condo in a few months... Greg got it done. He was always there for me and for that, I will always be appreciative. Thank you Greg and thank you Team Kinnear!

        - Diane Burdine
      • Greg seemed genuinely interested in our house, really looked at it thoroughly. He even took our advice on some selling points.

        - Bill & Ann Hart
      • Greg Kinnear and his team are simply the best! He is the most professional and ethical agent you will ever find. His expertise, friendly disposition, and personal manner relieve your stress and anxiety. He actually makes the expeirience of selling and/or buying a home a pleasure. He guided us through the process of preparing our home for sale, referring us to excellent resources alonmg the way. He explained the market and pricing clearly and informatively. We actually sold the home in one day with multiple offers. He was helpful in every aspect of the sale of our home and our relocation. In summary we cannot speak highly enough of him and his team. We offer our most sincere praise and our highest recommendation.

        - C. Shearer
      • We had tried to sell our home twice before with two other agents and no luck. We hired Greg Kinnear and our house had a contract in 4 days and we closed in 30 - and above asking price!! We had 14 showings in 2.5 days alone. He was amazing to work with - so personable, knowledgeable, and friendly! My husband and I knew within a half hour of our first meeting that he was our guy. Selling your home is a very stressful event and he was always calm and collected and walked us through every step. His assistant, Karen, was on top of things and they both are responsive to all emails and calls. I cannot recommend them enough - this should be your realtor!!

        - T. Chapman
      • Greg was excellent. He was extremely responsive and pro-active on items. Greg priced our house to sell and it did in one weekend. Greg provided positive as well as constructive suggestions on what to do to our house to make it more appealing. Greg is very experienced and knowledgeable in the area, so he was a great fit. Totally enjoyed working with Greg. I would highly recommend Greg and we have.

        - K. Wineholt
      • My experience with Greg and team Kinnear was one to remember. He made the process as enjoyable as it could be and kept me informed of each important step. He was proactive with his communication approach and his local knowledge of our hosing market really helped us in selling our home. There were some times of stress and fear of the unknown and Greg helped my family and I by easing our concerns and remaining positive throughout the entirety of the experience. Our house sold in only one month! I truly believe it was due to the excellent customer service, market knowledge and continued focus on making our house sell as one of their top priorities. I will be recommending team Kinnear to anyone in the Howard county area who wants to buy/sell a home, it was truly a wonderful experience.

        - Ben Mortensen
      • Greg Kinnear handled the listing & sale of my condo in a timely, professional & friendly manner. I appreciated his concise & effective way of explaining the many documents involved. Greg & his team, which included Karen Ambrose, kept on top of the selling process & kept me informed at all times with quick texts & emails. Greg & I used the ShowingTime app on my phone to quickly & effectively confirm showings of my condo, which Greg always followed up on. I appreciated Greg's analysis & advise when I received multiple different offers for my condo. I was able to use online signing of several documents to simplify & speed along the selling process. I felt Greg and his team knew the market, the process, had the best tools, and consistently handled the sale of my condo as if it was their most important job of the day.

        - J. Douglass
      • I am pretty cynical when it comes to the home buying experience and he proved me wrong. His assistance throughout the whole process was extremely helpful. He was trustworthy and had great referrals. I asked him general advice on other real estate questions and he was willing to assist there as well. I highly recommend him!

        - Maura Teitelbaum
      • Team Kinnear is an apt name for this agent and this group. Greg guided me masterfully through preparing this house for sale, so we worked together with each other and his team doing house preparation. In less than a week on the market I had two good contracts. Overcame a slight, last minute hitch at closing perfectly.

        - William May
      • Greg sold my parents home some years before.....and we were happy with that.... I hired him to sell land in Howard County...I live in California.. He made the process very easy and effortless...He knew about and set up everything needed prior to putting the property on the market. He kept me apprised about what was happening in the process. I didn't have to pay out of state tax and needed certain documentation before settlement to ensure that. Greg made sure that everything was done before settlement so that I wouldn't have to pay any tax. All in all I found Greg to be a man of integrity,knowledgeable, and trustworthy and I would highly recommend him. I wish he was here in California....I'd get him to help me find a property here.

        - P. Christiansen
      • Greg sold our house so fast (5 days) we had to duck! Mom has transitioned to a retirement community and he was very patient with her and the family throughout this process. He had buyers interested in the home before it even listed. He investigated the buyer's qualifications prior to our acceptance. It was a very clean all cash sale and the settlement lasted 30 minutes. Most of the administrative paperwork outside of closing is fully automated and online with Greg. If you are looking to sell your home, you should have no problem if you select Greg and follow his recommendations on getting the house to sell. He knows exactly what buyers in this area are looking for.

        - J. Lingenfelter
      • Greg was incredibly helpful, responsive, and patient with my husband and I as we sought to purchase our family home. Greg showed us 20+ homes, helped us write 3 different offers, and walked us through all of the paperwork involved. He was always available to us and extremely responsive. We really appreciated his pointed advice and feedback when we asked for it. He provided references for lenders, an electrician, a handyman, and inspector. Greg made this easy for us and we couldn't be more grateful. Even though Greg must be very busy, he always made us feel like we were his only clients. We would strongly recommend Greg to all of our friends and family.

        - Sara Hall
      • Greg has exceeded all expectations! He has been a pleasure to work with, but more importantly, he has also demonstrated an extraordinary willingness to go the extra mile (and then some) to make sure that every detail was considered and handled well. There were a number of repairs needed before we could put our home on the market, and he was especially helpful by recommending excellent firms and experts who did the work in a very professional and satisfactory manner. He also provided excellent advice when setting the price and negotiating the sale of our home. I very highly recommend Greg as an outstanding realtor!

        - Noel Longuemar
      • Since my last experience selling home was 30 years ago, I can't imagine getting through this experience without Greg's expertise. His advice and especially his ability to bring calm to stressful moments not only led to a successful financial outcome, but invaluable to me personally since I was the family's sole decision maker. He showed patience with all my questions and worked diligently to investigate and resolve all of the issues that arose, to include managing forward progress on repairs while I was traveling. After my 2nd failed attempt to obtain an estimate from a plumber, he intervened and a plumber met with me the next morning. At the end of that meeting the plumber told me that his company couldn't keep up with their workload, and that he only followed through for me because of Greg's request. Indicative of the support Greg provided from beginning to end.

        - C. Rickert
      • Greg helped us sell our home in Ellicott City, MD and we recommend him as highly as possible. We were thrilled with his expertise and service. He had an outstanding knowledge of our neighborhood, and the local market. We went with his suggested listing price and our house was under contract within 5 days. The home selling process went smoothly without any problems, thanks to Greg's guidance. Although he does have other members of his team available for assistance, Greg was our primary contact regarding all aspects of the home sale, including hosting the open house. This personalized service was exemplary. He was friendly and responsive, and understanding of our concerns and perspective.

        - Aren & Sunny Jansen
      • Greg was a wonderful realtor to work with! As first time home buyers, the whole process can be overwhelming. Greg was calm and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. He listened to all our needs and truly understood what we were looking for in a home. We would highly recommend him! You won't be disappointed!

        - E. Lynn
      • Greg was so easy to work with! There was no high-pressure sales, just a calm, down to earth, honest approach that gave us confidence that he had our best interests at heart. He always answered our questions quickly, had great resources for fixing up out house & we'd highly recommend him!!

        - Rodger & Susan Abel

He is extremely responsive to phone calls and emails.He is without a doubt the finest real estate agent I have worked with and I have worked many. He has many connections if you need repair work.

        - Yalcin Tokgozoglu
      • Greg's expertise was much appreciated in the process of selling our first home and helping us purchase our dream home. He made sure we were well informed and always up to date on what was taking place. While we feel we are in our "forever home" if anything were to change I cant imagine working with anyone else. Greg helped to make this all a very positive experience.

        - Shawn and Leilani Roehrig
      • Greg was very attentive to any concerns I had. He gave me good advice on the necessary changes to show my house well and yet did not go overboard suggesting unnecessarily expensive changes. He always responded quickly to any calls I made and did a great job negotiating the sale of some of my items to the new owners. My house was priced well and it sold so quickly that I was very pleasantly surprised. I was able to close and move into my new home without a hitch.

        - Anna Marie Ciarrocchi
      • I just wanted to send a quick thank you for all that you did to make our home selling adventure go so smoothly. Your kindness, experience, patience, and professionalism definitely set my mind at ease during each step. Also please thank Karen for all that she did to help us from beginning to end! I am sure I don't even know a fraction of what goes on behind the scenes!

        - Kristen Columbia
      • Greg is the consummate professional and extremely knowledgeable about the market. His tenacity and recommendations on ways in which to sell my property proved valuable and helped me to get a fair price in a very difficult time. He is extremely responsive, helpful and I recommend him without reservation. PS this is the second property he has helped me sell!!

        - Nancy Gaither
      • We were very pleased with the competent service and the professional manner that Greg Kinnear handled the selling of our house. His initial contact with us was a very detailed marketing plan tailored to our specific market, supported by up to date research on sales trends in the housing market in general. The results were as estimated. Our house was sold in less than ninety days to a well qualified buyer who matched our possible buyer profile. Greg's competence also helped us solve the expected and unexpected problems that developed with buyer and seller contingencies. We couldn't have been more pleased with his diligence and attention to detail that made this important transaction happen at full market value. Thanks to Greg and the team at ReMax Realty.

        - Ron & Clare Pottle

        - James & Gwen Hawes

      • Greg Kinnear listed and sold my aunt's home. I was impressed with, and very much appreciated, Greg's knowledge and excellent service.

        - D. Lillbridge
      • He knew what to do to sell our home and did a great job in getting us the best price. The price he was able to get for our home was much higher then our asking price. He was very knowledge and just a wonderful person to work with. He listen to us and guided us through the process in a very professional and caring manner. He was always on top of things and kept us informed of all the offers. I would highly recommend Greg if you are planning to sell or buy a home.

        - J. Becker
      • It seems not long ago that we met Greg Kinnear, our Realtor. We were looking to sell our home, so we researched realtors in the area, and based on Greg?s website information and sales statistics, we felt he would be a top notch realtor candidate in the area for us to consider. After one call with Greg, we had confidence in Greg and decided to then meet him in person. At that point, we knew we wanted Greg to list our home for us. Within only a matter of weeks, our house had been sold. It was a great experience from listing to closing! Once Greg took control, the rest seemed so easy?we basically sat back, and Greg worked through his process. Greg kept us in the loop with any related activities or buyer interests along the way. Any time that we had questions, Greg was quick to provide answers. In the future, as happy clients, if we ever need to sell or buy real estate, we know who to call, Greg Kinnear!

        - S. Stamatakos
      • Greg Kinnear was so helpful in suggesting what parts of the house and yard needed to be improved in order to sell it. He then recommended specific contractors to renovate one of the bathrooms, paint all of the walls, refinish the hardwood floors, and carpet the family room. All of the contractors did excellent work at reasonable cost. He was always patient and cheerful as well. We were happy with every phase of the fixing and selling process.

        - P. Canner
      • Greg Kinnear and his team were incredibly professional in my interactions with them. He was quick in getting back to me whenever I had questions. I highly recommend Greg Kinnear and his team.

        - J. Ng
      • Greg was very responsive and easy to work with. He made the right recommendations on what needed to be done to get the house ready for sale. He has excellent people that can help you get the work done quickly and for a decent price. In the end the house was only on the market for 5 weeks, and it was in October/November, and we got an offer! I would definitely recommend working with Greg and his team

        - Karen Vonhagel
      • Greg Kinnear, Took time to show me detailed marketing strategies on how to show my house on the market. I always felt that even showing the property late in the season it was in good hands. If I had any questions he always answer in adequate time. The house was place on the market and sold within three weeks. Pleased with the outcome, I will definitely consider using Greg Kinnear in future investments.
