Applause & Rave Reviews
From our wonderful clients
SELL FASTER & FOR MORE
“I refer to Anne as “the MBA of stagers”. She is a consummate professional. Anne is gracious, and yet speaks with authority intuiting the unique needs of each seller. Her resources run deep, and she is totally team focused. My exclusives sell for 10 to 20% more, and in half the time than they would have if her talents were not involved. Quite simply, she’s in a class of her own.”
-James White, Stribling & Associates
ON BUDGET & ON TIME
“Selling townhomes in New York City for over 35 years, I have come to realize the importance of intelligent staging in maximizing sales price. For the past decade, Anne Kenney has prepared a number of my exclusive townhouse listings for sale. Not only does Anne stand out for her creativity and professionalism; but equally important, she is flexible and accommodating. And every staging has been completed on budget and on time. Anne’s work was especially important in achieving record numbers for the houses at 355 Central Park West and 103 Riverside Drive.”
-Wolf Jakubowski, Brown Harris Stevens
VAST RANGE OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROPERTIES….ANNE ALWAYS DELIVERS
“Anne Kenney is my first, last, and only stop when it comes to staging an exclusive. Anne has an incredible eye for unlocking a space and maximizing its sellable features. What impresses me most about Anne is not only her ability to turn a bland space into a warm inviting room but the expediency and organization in which she does it. This is an extremely fast moving business and we, brokers, by nature are impatient. We sign an exclusive and we want it staged the next day. From a small studio apartment to a grand design of a trophy property, Anne always delivers the right furnishings, the right look, and always on time. The swift and high offers speak for themselves.”
-Jay Glazer, The Jay Glazer Team, Urban Compass
“I haven’t listed, or photographed a property in more than 8 years without an Anne Kenney consultation. Anne has a razor sharp eye and a keen understanding of what buyers want in a home, how they shop for a home, and how they perceive a home. When Anne is hired, I know the results will be universally appealing, especially to our most likely target market, and that the property will sell quickly and for more money.
I also hire Anne for all of my professional photo shoots. The photographer makes sure the pictures are well lit and focused; Anne makes sure the camera sees the most salient features of a property, at the best angles, with minimal distractions, and with the right “personality”.
Anne is diplomatic, responsible and filled with positive energy. All of my clients and team members adore her. Anne is my secret weapon when it comes to freshening and energizing expired listings that didn’t sell when listed with another broker. Time after time, Anne helps me get the results everyone hopes for to the delight of my clients.
Having Anne on my team keeps me steps ahead of the buyers and gives me a leg up on the competition.”
MICHAEL SHAPOT, ESQ., Keller Williams
DRAMATIC RESULTS IN TOUGH MARKET…
“Thank goodness for Anne Kenney Associates! We were faced with selling our mother’s independent living apartment when she required assisted living. Time was critical in getting the apartment sold as we could not afford to maintain two residences for her.
We listed the apartment and while we had a number of people look at it, we had no offers. Deciding to regroup, it was recommended we have the apartment staged and it was then we were referred to Anne Kenney Associates. What a blessing! It was great to have a supportive, neutral person to work with our family in clearing clutter, working with the furniture we had, adding a few additional pieces and items to warm up the space, and making the absolute best use of the space (who knew the overflowing office area could be a charming eating area!).
Literally, within one week we had an offer at our asking price and got the place sold! A dramatic result in a tough market. The staged apartment looked so inviting the buyers even asked if they could buy some of the furniture. There were multiple apartments in the building for sale at our price and below, but ours was the one which sold! Thank you, Anne Kenney Associates.”
-Jane and Ann Wallace, Sellers
AKA TEAM WORKS MIRACLES
“Anne and her team are real estate miracle workers who transform great spaces that are tired (very lived in), cluttered, unappealing, or just in need of freshening into fabulous homes that buyers love. Anne has been an essential part of ‘my team’ for years and her efforts have made the difference between no offers and many. Proper staging is a seller’s best possible investment to insure getting the highest price for what is most people’s major asset–their homes. Anne’s vision for a space always amazes me. The Before and After’s are Make Over Magic! She’s incredibly organized, efficient, and pleasure to work with. She gets my A+ rating. “
-JoAnne Kennedy, Corcoran
“A few hours with Anne is not only money in your pocket, but a joy for your soul.”
-Karen Harris, Seller
“Your staging worked wonders. Five offers- all over ask– the week after the first Open House…and we thought we were going to have to drop the price to sell it!”
-V. Carry, Seller
“Thanks to your expert staging, the unit went for the highest price in the building to date”!
Madeleine Dale, Halstead
UNIQUE PLAN SPECIFIC TO YOUR NEEDS…
Anne’s staged properties brought offers within the first weeks of showing. Anne is a great asset in selling a property, enormously increasing curb appeal and resulting in a faster sale at a higher price. Since 2005, I have referred Anne to all of my clients, whether to just tweak the presentation or for a total make-over of an entire home. Anne is a great listener, offering suggestions and customizing a unique plan specifically suited to your needs. Anne has all the right resources at her finger tips: painters, repairmen, cleaners, movers. Anne is amazing, always following through and delivering more than she promises.
-Elizabeth H. Sierzega, Brown Harris Stevens
Anne has been my go-to since I was introduced to her a few years ago. Prior to contacting Anne, I spoke with several of the brokers she works with and they had nothing but great things to say about her work and her results. Her work ranges from full to partial staging depending upon the needs of my clients and their circumstances. If I am asked to give my sellers a list of names so they can get a feel for different types of stagers and how they work, Anne always comes out on top.
Anne is excellent in several respects. She is extremely talented, resourceful, flexible and reasonable and ultimately, a problem solver. She has worked with clients of mine in all price points. She is extremely approachable and makes my clients feel at ease from the moment she walks in the door. She is a great listener and communicates with great warmth, and compassion.
Working with sellers at the onset involves communicating imagination and vision relative to the space. Not all sellers have the ability to visualize. Yet, Anne, with great precision and clarity, is able to articulate what is required to get the space ready for market in a manner that concretizes these ideas for them. My clients feel she is crystal clear in her proposals, that she has exceeded their expectations with respect to the work and ultimately the resulting price and swifter sales time.
-Patricia Galante, Corcoran
ALWAYS LEADS TO A QUICK SALE
Dear Anne—I would like to take the time to thank you again for all the help you have given me over the past few years with many of the properties I have handled that needed your magic touch. Every project that you have worked on has led to a quick sale at prices even I was surprised about and made my clients extremely happy. There can sometimes be resistance to the staging idea, but every time we have been able to show the importance of this investment, the client understands in the end that this investment more than paid off, not only in the ultimate price, but in the fact that the properties sold very quickly. This makes my job so much easier when I see buyers walk in the door with that “wow” expression on their faces!
In addition to your expertise and creativity you and your team are wonderful to work with. You always get the job done quickly and with no problems for me or the seller. I can’t thank you enough and am looking forward to our next project!
