“Sean provided us exceptional care”
We wouldn’t have found our dream home if it wasn’t for Sean’s knowledge and expertise
My Husband and I just purchased our first home back in November. Sean was recommended to us by close friends who had Sean as their realtor in the past. Right from day one Sean provided us exceptional care. Sean always ensured we understood all the ins and outs of purchasing our first home. He gave us the reassurance that we were in the best care possible. Sean always made himself available when we needed him weather it was by phone, email or in person we always could reach him. We wouldn’t have found our dream home if it wasn’t for Sean’s knowledge and expertise and for that we are thankful.

“If you entrust Leo and Sean with all your real estate needs, then you will be in excellent “hands”
Listing and selling our home with Leo Manchisi and Sean Kavanagh of Century 21 Miller Real Estate proved to be an effortless, stress-free process from start to finish
Listing and selling our home with Leo Manchisi and Sean Kavanagh of Century 21 Miller Real Estate proved to be an effortless, stress-free process from start to finish. At the initial introductory meeting, they were very friendly and re-assuring as they explained their marketing strategy, which included both their commitment to us, and what we had to do to prepare our house for optimum “show-ability”. This included deciding which furnishings should remain, which should go into storage, and any overall decor improvements that would present potential buyers with positive “first-view” impressions. Their entire presentation was both logical and thorough, and we signed the listing contract the following week. The house went on the market 5 days later, and sold that same evening for $50,000 over the asking price (but only after the offer had been fully explained, and all questions answered to our satisfaction).
EVERYTHING went VERY smoothly, from the initial meeting, to signing the final contract for the sale of our home. During both the pre- and post-sale process, Leo and Sean were cheerful and upbeat, and always kept us informed re the progress; also, if we had any concerns, they were always available to answer our questions in a timely fashion via a return phone call or an SMS text. Our intent after the house sale was to rent for at least a year while we assessed our future requirements, and Leo and Sean gave up 2 afternoons to drive us around Burlington to view the available leasing accommodations that would suit our needs. A service that was much appreciated.
In conclusion, we highly recommend the Manchisi/Kavanagh team, and suggest that, if you entrust Leo and Sean with all your real estate needs, then you will be in excellent “hands”.

“We got the most money we could get for our home because of his strategy and hard work”
He respected us from the moment he stepped into our home. He had a plan of action and knew what he was talking about. Best decision we made. 
When we decided to sell our home we were very nervous about picking the right agent for us. We decided to go to open houses and find one in action. Many agents were either to aggressive or sitting at a table on their phone. Sean was exactly what we were looking for. He had a beautiful brochure of the home and was very knowledgable about the features of the house. We decided to ask Sean to come and meet with us. We also asked other agents with signs all around the city to come as well. After all the interviews, Sean was by far the best. He respected us from the moment he stepped into our home. He had a plan of action and knew what he was talking about. Best decision we made. 

Sean helped us look at many houses. This Market was very stressful buying in and Sean helped us not to lose hope. The night we found our house, I had emailed Sean three that we wanted to look at. He told us that he also had one that we should see. You will never guess the house we bought. He knew exactly what would be the right fit for us and it was a house that we had over looked. If it wasn’t for him taking us there, we would not be as happy as we are now. That is an agent who knows his clients. 

After buying, we now had the task of selling. We were very nervous but Sean told us to trust him and he will sell our home. We listened and he came through. We got the most money we could get for our home because of his strategy and hard work. We can truly say that if we would have hired anyone else we would be in a very different situation right now. Selling/buying a home should be left in the hands of someone who understands completely that this is your life your trusting them with. Sean does understand that. 

Honestly, if you just have a meeting with him you will see why we used him and why you will as well. ”

“He knew what he was doing, and he is damn good at his job!”
We loved his personality, his work ethic, his listing strategies and his sense of humour. Sean was so great from the start. His introduction, constant follow up and dedication to us as clients was exceptional.
When we were starting our search for an agent to sell out home, we had spoken with a few Agents who had been recommended by family, but we were always on the look out for an Agent we felt was a better fit. Out for a walk one day in our neighbourhood, we came across an open house Sean was hosting. My husband went inside to take a look at the house (to compare to ours) and took Sean’s contact information. His first impression was, “Wow! That guys knows how to showcase a house! We need to set up a meeting with him to take a look at ours.”

When we did meet with Sean, we just clicked. We loved his personality, his work ethic, his listing strategies and his sense of humour. Sean was so great from the start. His introduction, constant follow up and dedication to us as clients was exceptional. When we made the decision to list with Sean, we were so nervous about the strategy that it wouldn’t work, what would happen if it didn’t sell, how were we going to manage maintaining the house for showings when I was back to work Full Time, my husband was working Full Time shift work, with a dog and 10 month old running around. Each step of the way, Sean reassured us that the short term pain would equate to long term gain, and you know what, he was completely right!

The night we began accepting offers, we were understandably so nervous, and Sean’s cool, calm and collected attitude, relieved all of the tension and stress we were experiencing. He told us we would be happy with the outcome of that night, and we were extremely pleased in the end! We received a substantial amount more than our asking price and were lucky enough to have 7 offers presented! Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine we would have such a great end result as we did, and it was all thanks to Sean. He knew what he was doing, and he is damn good at his job!

We would recommend Sean to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. When he says he takes care of his clients, he means it. We were and still are so happy with our decision to list with Sean. We have not only developed a professional relationship with Sean, but also a lasting friendship.

“Best darn real estate agent ever!”
Sean was sensitive to the emotional part of selling our home and was very patient through the anxious periods.
When John and I decided to sell our house, we had no idea how to find a real estate agent. A friend of mine told me about Sean Kavanagh and said she would let him know we were looking for an agent. He called us the next day and set up a meeting. We knew that day he was the perfect person to work with us; to sell our house in Toronto and find us a house in Burlington.

Sean is a knowledgeable and dedicated agent. He spent a lot of time getting to know us and took us through many houses just to get an idea of what we wanted. He gave us great advice about staging our house and had done a lot of research about the sale of houses in our area. When our house was listed, he followed up with potential buyers and always kept us updated. Sean responded to our phone calls and emails immediately and we always felt like we were in very capable and caring hands. As well as being informative, Sean was sensitive to the emotional part of selling our home and was very patient through the anxious periods.

Selling and buying a house is a lot more stressful than we ever imagined, but Sean took a stressful situation and made it enjoyable. We are grateful for all he did for us. If you are ever looking for a real estate agent, I highly recommend Sean. You won’t be disappointed.

“We thank you very much for all you’ve done”
I would hope to hear that all the families involved in the buying and selling of these homes are as happy as we are. I am certainly sharing stories of our moving experience with family and friends.
Making a decision to downsize, pull up roots, change jobs and make a new community my home, was difficult. It was made possible by so much help from my family and friends, and I include you as a new friend who helped me when I didn’t know what to do. Improvements were made easy by your capable trades persons. You always made time to bring me to viewings and you seemed to know better what I wanted than I did myself. You steered me away from questionable neighbourhoods or poor commuting routes. You pointed out the drawbacks of some of the older homes I thought I wanted.

You certainly worked hard leading up to the 2 frantic days of showings which resulted in the firm sale of the Burlington house. You did not make light of any of my concerns from my mis-wording of the listing agreement to the missing kitchen island.

I would hope to hear that all the families involved in the buying and selling of these homes are as happy as we are. I am certainly sharing stories of our moving experience with family and friends. Lots of good memories, and creating new memories here in Brantford. We thank you very much for all you’ve done.
