    • "I can't say enough about my experience with John Kenny and all the help he was in the sale of my Father's home. I live about 80 miles away in far East County and making the trip to SF wasn't always feasible but John went above and beyond so I wouldn't have to. Through the entire process I knew if i called him he was there to answer any questions I might have. He negotiated the sale of the home which resulted in receiving top dollar. I've sold a few homes over the years and this was by far the best experience. Thank you again John!"

    • "John was my listing agent on a three unit building. He was proactive, responsive, timely, and knowledgeable. He is now assisting with a 1031 exchange. I would use him again. "

      - Louise
    • "John sold my Mother-in-Law's home in San Francisco. He provided excellent service from the start - and my skeptical mother-in-law loved him from their first meeting. He did everything he could to make her feel comfortable, he was very patient with her questions and uncertainty, and he gave her all the time she needed at each meeting. John was professional, personable, and extremely knowledgeable! He had the professional connections that allowed minimal effort on our part to get the home ready to sell. He priced her home reasonably and ended up selling in less than two weeks and for more than $75k over the listed price!! I highly recommend John Kenny! You will not regret choosing John as your real estate agent!"

    • John is an outstanding Realtor! He was able sell our house in a very timely manner for a great price! Our sale was very complicated, legally and logistically. John was able to use his years of experience and knowledge to maneuver our sale through every issue in a very effective manner. He is very understanding, thoughtful, and kind. I would recommend John to all my family, friends, and anyone else needing an expert Realtor. With John, you will not only get a highly competent Realtor, you will also gain a trusted friend. Thanks again, John!

    • John was personable from the get-go, offering help along the way and steering us in a direction that eventually led to becoming homeowners. He was there for inspections, appraisals and worked as our intermediary with the professionals needed to get the job done. John will take care of you!

      - Rachel E
    • I strongly recommend Jon Kenny. Ive worked with him as a buyer and as a seller, and he is my first choice the next time I need a broker. He listens carefully, and tailors his advice to fit the needs and understanding of the client. He is an excellent advocate when working with others in his field. As a bonus, he has an extensive network of vendors and service professionals who can help at all the various stages of moving, including cleaners, moving companies, carpentry, painters, landscaping, and anything else you might happen to need along the way. Moving is complicated enough; its good to have someone in your corner who always has your back.

    • NP recommends John J. KennyProfessorOct 16, 2016I highly recommend John--he is efficient, savvy of the market, with an uncanny sense of when to nudge and when to give us space. It was nearly a year-long process for us to get my parent's home on the market and John was always available and responded to my questions typically within an hour.

    • Aug 26, 2016John has been there for three sales transactions, from beginning to end. He helped us find and buy our first home and, 13 years later, sell it for almost three times the original purchase price. His knowledge of the market, the process and his ability to understand and show compassion for people during what can't be a very difficult process. John's a great guy and I trust him 100% with any transaction I would ever do. He's honest, straightforward, and tells you like it is. He also has a great sense of humor and knows went to lighten up the mood. He's my go to real estate guy forever.

    • Special Agent - Department of JusticeNov 21, 2015John Kenny is a talent worth knowing! John has elevated the task of buying/selling sticks and bricks to a new creative and competitive level. John's energy, blinding smile and grasp of the Bay area housing market has made my dream come true in less than 90 days! Somehow, John orchestrated me a deal which placed me in the house of my dreams, 'below asking/list price'! Just this one deal speaks to John's great days ahead. If asked to paint a picture of John Kenny with words, I'd say, 'Competent', 'Compassionate' and 'Creative'. In sum, John Kenny is not the sort of man who wakes up each morning plagued by self doubt or wondering what to do.

    • Jun 9, 2016Working with John was effortless! He was such a pleasure to work with that the sale of my house was actually fun! John is as professional as they come - he made sure to stay on top of everything through the entire process. And, we got $85,000 over asking price! I would highly recommend John to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home

    • Homeowner/investorDec 6, 2015It is our immense pleasure to recommend John Kenny as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home or investment property. My wife and I engaged with John as we were considering purchasing a second home. This was a big step for us and we were in need of some sound council and guidance. Moreover, while the property seemed right for our needs, the timing was not ideal as we were both distracted by new job and family responsibility. We were not sure we could pull this all off. John had an initial meeting with us and listened to our goals, objectives and limitations. He did not push us into a purchase; he helped us make an objective decision. As we explored the opportunity, John surveyed the market, looked for alternatives and connected with local and listing agent. John dug deep and connected with the County on past permits and researched other important aspects of the property which we would not have understood on our own. His effort allowed us have a complete understanding of the important factors in this important decision. A master with the contract negotiations, John came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. He ended up below our upper limit which is true testament to John's consideration for his client. John could have quickly defaulted to our top offer but instead he found the seller's bottom and saved us a considerable amount due to his skill. I am sure we would have paid more if not for John Kenny. We found John to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only clients, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality. John is also very talented technologically and he used these skills to save us time and accelerate the process. We are pleased to recommend John Kenny to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or investment property. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever transact again he will be our first choice in real estate agents. He has definitely raised the bar.

    • sellerAug 17, 2015I highly recommend realtor John Kenny. He helped advise me on timing, upgrades, staging and key strategies in the sale of my condo in San Francisco's Richmond District this summer. John was a pleasure to work with; extremely 'hands on'; and always insightful in his explanations and encouraging of me during a very stressful process. I appreciated his professionalism, wisdom and sense of humor as well.

    • Homebuyer, and now homeownerJul 9, 2015John was professional, a great communicator, skilled, and always friendly to work with. John knows what he's doing, but also a guy I'd grab a beer with just to hang out.

      - Eric
    • From day 1, John was awesome throughout the process! We were 1st time home buyers and he was very thorough in explaining us the entire process using some great analogies. He knows both the peninsula Bay and SF area very well, and really adds value in providing info about a particular area beyond what you can find online. His willingness to visit as many homes with you in-person is definitely a plus. From time to time when we had concerns, he was there to help address/answer them and went out of his way to do additional research that would make us feel more comfortable. He invests time in getting to know what you are looking for. He also got us in touch with a lender that provided a great loan rate. You know when someone is just doing their job vs. when someone is really dedicated to what they do and love every minute of it. John is definitely the latter. He is a wonderful and an awesome personality to work with: jovial, great sense of humor, meticulous and very detail-oriented. Thanks to John, we found our home! We feel 200%+ comfortable recommending him to our friends and family! :)

    • I have used John twice now and would not hesitate to use him again should I ever have the need. John has a vast amount of experience and know-how into the entire process of getting a house sold. He has made it so easy for me by keeping in constant contact and being proactive in getting things done, like getting the house ready to sell, advertising, listing, showing and remained involved in the closing process to be sure I was kept in the loop and to answer any questions that might arise. Further, he is a most personable individual and I feel like I have made a friend for life. I would absolutely strongly recommend him.

    • John Kenny is the BEST real estate agent! He tirelessly met all of our needs, on both the buying and selling sides. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious. He knows the San Francisco real estate market inside and out, and his marketing strategies are fantastic. He's even fun when the subject is documents! I could not recommend him higher.

    • Let John help you with your purchase or sale! I purchased my first home with John's help recently - he made the whole process smooth and understandable. John took the time to explain all the details, advise where extra attention may be needed in my purchasing process and communicated with me within moments at all stages. John is a friendly guy who knows the area and is an expert at his business. John can make it happen for you!
