“nothing less than exceptional, professional real estate service” – Their words, not mine – By Sean Kavanagh

Mon, 28th April, 2014 - Posted by Sean Kavanagh - (0) Comment

Sean delivered nothing less than exceptional, professional real estate service during the recent listing of our home. We listened to Sean’s suggestion of a realistic list price and I sure am glad that we did as within 10 hours of having our home listed on the MLS, Sean was already negotiating our deal. We had a couple of conditions to the deal that could have held things up but Sean was able to solve all the problems in a timely fashion and saved the deal. He has resources available and services on call that were of great assistance in helping us to complete our deal. He knows “his stuff” and has realistic and honest negotiating skills to get the deal done!

Sean is very approachable, knowledgeable and is only ever a call, text or email away. He answers you promptly and puts your mind at ease. I will definitely be passing along Sean’s name as an expert of the profession and highly recommend him to assist anyone in their real estate transactions!

Sean knows “his stuff”…”his stuff” is Real Estate!!”

5 Steps to Keep Fence Posts from Rotting – By Sean Kavanagh

Tue, 8th April, 2014 - Posted by Sean Kavanagh - (0) Comment

When buyers purchase a property, home inspections often reveal deficiencies in wood fencing, more specifically, rotting posts. If your cedar fence posts are rotting at the bottom, you need to replace them. The rot probably developed because the posts were installed improperly. When you are installing a fence, be sure the posts are put in properly to ensure the fence has a long life. Here are a few things you can do to ensure you have a strong and stable fence simply by installing the posts correctly.

Cedar has a reputation for durability, but unless a few guidelines are followed, cedar posts can fail in as few as five years. Three factors contribute to this early failure: poor drainage, low-quality wood and poor protection against insect damage. To get the most out of your new posts, here are five things you can do:

1. Soak the bottom of the posts in a wood preservative containing copper napthanate, such as Cuprinol. Available at some paint stores and home centers, this wood treatment is specifically designed for in-ground applications.

2. Place about 6 in. of aggregate in the bottom of the posthole to allow for drainage. The bottom of the post should extend a few inches into the aggregate as shown.

3. Pour the concrete so that it’s above the soil level. Trowel the top smooth and slope it so that water runs away from the post.

4. Apply high-quality exterior acrylic latex caulk, or silicone specifically designed to adhere to concrete, at the base of the post. This will seal the gap between the concrete and post that’s caused by freeze/thaw cycles.

5. Don’t use posts that contain sapwood. Sapwood is lighter in color (usually yellow) than heartwood, which is dark. Instead, use heartwood, because it’s denser and more insect-resistant.

‘Attention to details, honesty, perseverance, overall effort, solid real estate agent and a great person’ – His words, not mine!

Sat, 8th March, 2014 - Posted by Sean Kavanagh - (0) Comment

As a first time home buyer I was looking for a real estate agent that would give it to me straight, while keeping my best interests in mind – Sean did just that. He is the ideal professional; business oriented, but at the same time very personable, which made me feel more like a friend than a client. I worked with Sean for approximately four months. I really appreciated the emailed listings, his reliable nature when it came to scheduling home visits, and his consistent work to ensure that I was protected in my home purchase. His attention to details, honesty, perseverance, and overall effort is what made him stand out to me as a solid real estate agent, and most importantly a great person. Our business partnership ended months ago, but Sean is still available when I ask him for his advice. Sean’s a fantastic real estate agent and great friend.

Respectfully,

‘I thoroughly appreciate the top notch level of support and advice’ – His words, not mine

Sat, 8th March, 2014 - Posted by Sean Kavanagh - (0) Comment

I had the privilege of working with Sean during my recent housing search and couldn’t be happier with the unparalleled level of service that he provided to me from the get-go and onwards. He knows the market extremely well and did a tremendous job of (patiently) showing me as many properties as I wanted to see, while answering my millions of questions and providing me with comparative market/property data to help put things in perspective.

The professionalism and diligence that Sean displayed at all times helped to make the home buying process that much more comfortable, as he was always quick to follow up and follow through on any given inquiry and/or request. I thoroughly appreciate the top notch level of support and advice provided and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone who goes above and beyond in helping you to buy and/or sell your home.

Sincerely,

Rob Hughes

Client Appreciation Wine and Cheese Extravaganza!

Thu, 13th February, 2014 - Posted by Sean Kavanagh - (0) Comment

Client Appreciation Wine and Cheese Extravaganza!

Christmas is the time for giving and this year we were able to help a family have a Christmas they would never have imagined if it weren’t for the kindness and generosity of my wonderful clients. Every year I hold a ‘Client Appreciation Wine and Cheese Extravaganza’ to say thank you for trusting me with their business and referring my business to friends and family.

This year we wanted to do a little more! I decided to partner with the Compassion Society in Burlington to help out a family in need and provide them with a Christmas they wouldn’t forget. The Compassion Society connected me with a mother of 5 who was having trouble making ends meet, never mind being able to buy Christmas gifts for her 5 children and giving them a Christmas dinner. This woman didn’t know where to turn as her situation was quite dire. She is trying to raise 5 children on her own (17, 10, 9, 16 months and 2 months) as her husband recently left her and she is battling MS.

I decided to hold a casino night as part of this years Client Appreciation Party to raise money for this family. Over 50 clients came to the party and all helped to raise over $700 to help make a special Christmas for this family. Even the clients who didn’t know the first thing about blackjack joined in a few games to help out. It was a great evening in support of a great cause.

Weeks after Christmas I received this lovely note from the people at the Compassion Society:
“It wasn’t going to be much of a Christmas, and we got such a surprise!! I dont even know what to say. My kids are my whole life and someone cared about me and my kids!” I will never forget it!”

I read a quote that said ‘A man’s true wealth is the good he does in this world’ and Anne Frank once said, ‘You can never become poor from giving’. I think we all became a little wealthier that night.

Thank you again to all of my wonderful clients who came to the party and helped make it a huge success. I look forward to seeing you all again at the summer Client Appreciation Family BBQ!

‘Level of service and expertise nothing but superb’ – Their words, not mine! – Sean Kavanagh

Tue, 28th January, 2014 - Posted by Sean Kavanagh - (0) Comment

My husband and I worked with Sean on our first home-buying experience. He was recommended to us by my mom so we knew his level of service and expertise would be nothing but superb. He definitely followed through – Sean took the time to educate us on all the important facts to consider when purchasing a home (especially our first) which made us feel like our business truly mattered to him. It was important to us that our agent took the same time he gave other clients with bigger budgets. He was always very prompt at returning calls and emails and went out of his way to rearrange other appointments and meetings if there was a property we were eager to see. That kind of courtesy speaks volumes these days. We found Sean to be patient, honest and genuine with each home we saw and he reassured us that we would find the right house with all of our must-have criteria. He was right! As impatient as I can be, in hindsight, it was a pretty quick and painless process (despite all the paperwork!) and we would definitely use Sean in the future! We are very thankful for his compassion, humble nature and concern for our happiness – we would highly recommend him.

Justine and Phil McKnight

If you are thinking of buying or selling your home this year and want the same level of service Justine and Phil received, please don’t hesitate to give me a call. I would be happy to meet with you to show you how I work.

First Time Buyer Pitfalls – Here is how to avoid them by Sean Kavanagh

Fri, 18th October, 2013 - Posted by Sean Kavanagh - (0) Comment

First time buyers have a lot to consider when buying a home. It is often overwhelming and a little confusing. The reason it is a good idea to enlist the services of a professional realtor is to avoid making some of the following errors. A professional realtor should be there at every step of the way answering all of your questions and guiding you seamlessly through the buying process.

Choosing the right realtor is one of the most important decisions a first time buyer can make. It is important that the realtor will be working in the buyer’s best interests, has the knowledge and experience necessary to do the best job possible and is one that has been recommended by someone who has had an exceptional experience with a realtor…….not just an OK experience. There are plenty of realtors out there that can give you OK service, but you want to find someone that will exceed your expectations.

Click Here for the full list of pitfalls to avoid

Here are some satisfied first time buyers I was able to help into their first home together. Read what they had to say about their experience with me.

While purchasing a property, Sean was extremely knowledge about the area and negotiated a price we were comfortable paying. Sean was always there to answer any questions we had, and trust me – we had many! His high level of quality service is enough alone for me to recommend him to anyone looking to buy / sell property; however his great personality and funny nature make it also enjoyable to deal with him.

Paul Dobson and Sara Cromwell

If you are considering buying a home in the near future, I would love the opportunity to sit down and discuss the buying process and what I do to help put people in homes.
