Andy Kaknes Testimonials

I recently purchased my first home with the help of Andy. I came into this having no knowledge of the home buying process. Andy took his time with me and guided me through the whole process step by step he never made me feel dumb about all my questions. I would highly recommend him to anybody. I am very pleased with my new home. Thank you so much Andy.

Andy, is a great realtor. He helped me sell my condo in Cambridge for almost $20K above asking and then helped my fiance and I buy our dream house. Andy was a wealth of information and was instrumental in helping us get our offer accepted on a highly desirable home in an extremely competitive market. Andy, patiently explained the ins and outs of both my sale and our home purchase and was active and engaged in every important process. Andy, went above and beyond to insure that I got maximum price for my condo sale and then was a strong advocate and negotiator in our purchase. Andy, was accessible and responsive at all times, which was comforting during the stressful process of buying and/or selling a home. I couldn't be happier in my new home or with Andy's role in helping me get there.

Andy was very helpful in the closing of our short sale. He was willing to do the leg work in order to get us into our new house when others were not

As a real estate investor working in North East Massachusetts, I needed a Realtor who knew the area well and that was Andy. Starting with Andy in March 2012 by September we had already done rehabprojects! Andy is extremely motivated, and will do whatever it takes to get the deal done. I trust his opinion, take his advice, and will happily continue to work with him - whether for a personal home, rental property, or investment project. His market knowledge, experience with buyers, sellers, and their agents makes my job easier, and more enjoyable.

Andy Kaknes was the perfect agent for me looking to relocate to a better community. I didn't need to move but was looking for just the right opportunity to find a better place. I went to many open houses and met many agents. No one was willing to put in the work that Andy did. I looked for over a year and I would say that the thing I appreciated most about Andy was his patience to work with me and find the right house at the right price for me. I couldn't be happier with the way my search turned out and I would recommend Andy for anyone buying or selling a property because I know he will go the distance, put in the time, and his advice is dead on.

Mr. Kaknes was completely professional through the entire Short Sale proceedings, which didn't go as smoothly as we had expected. With each issue or task that was next on the "To Do" list, Andy was on it and kept me and the buyer in the loop the entire time. I found that Andy explained things clearly, whether on the phone or via email, was professional, diligent and understanding. Andy listened to me on the tough days, was always patient and genuinely wants the best for his clients. Highly recommended.

Andy Kaknes helped my wife and I sell our house in Belvidere - Lowell, MA. In the spring of 2011, the local housing market was not good and most of the agents we spoke with wanted to offer the house at a rock-bottom price to someone who would strip it and remodel it. Andy was determined to get a much better price and they did. He handled the negotiations with prospective buyers, keeping the price near our original asking price. At the end, he held out against a very nervous buyer who liked the house but wanted us to do some expensive work first and enabled us to sell it to a buyer who was second in line but eager to buy the house as it was. A year after the closing, that buyer is still delighted with the house she bought and my wife and I are still delighted with how Andy helped us make our own dream come true.

Andy was a great and very responsive agent. He always answered phone calls/emails and would arrange for property viewings on the drop of a dime, which was extremely helpful in a competitive housingmarket. He was also very knowledgeable on the house buying process and was with us every step of the way. Andy also has a great feel for the local market and will ensure that you never over pay!

Andy Kaknes is a top notch real estate agent! My wife and I ultimately bought a house in Concord and through the whole process Andy was patient, professional and worked tirelessly to get us the housewe wanted. I strongly recommend him because the whole process of buying a house can be very stressful and as an agent he made it actually enjoyable and fun!

He was so patient and very understanding when I was looking to buy. He gave me so many options that I was able to find a condo in less than a month. He is very flexible, always on time and even goes an extra mile to help whenever necessary. Thanks Andy. You are the best.

I wanted to take a moment to share my experience with Andy Kaknes as my Realtor. I am a Real Estate Investor, as well as a licensed Massachusetts Real Estate Salesperson and a member of the EasternMiddlesex Association of Realtors. On a recent renovation flip real estate deal which I was involved in I decided to use Andy Kaknes as my listing agent in order to take some work off of my desk. Being a professional myself I was skeptical that I would be pleased with the manner and effort in which Andy would approach my real estate listing. However, after the fact I can speak to the point that Andy was the utmost professional, proactive, and reactive as necessary. He helped me facilitate a great listing that attracted buyers and we had our property under contract for sale in only a couple of weeks! I would be glad to have Andy list another one of my projects, next time I won't be so worried in the beginning!

My wife and I were recently looking for a new apartment in the downtown Lowell area. Andy Kaknes helped us find an excellent place that met all of our needs, but also surpassed many of our expectations.From the quality of the living space, to a location close in proximity to public transportation, it was Andy's knowledge of the area and his relationship with the community that helped place us in our delightful apartment. Andy would always have us in mind whenever a new listing would come up. Each one better then the last. We would often be traveling from the Boston area to view an apartments. Andy's flexibility with our busy schedules and ability to set up viewings of multiple listings was a huge plus to us. Even through the application process, Andy was by our side all along the way. He was consistently available by phone or email to answer any questions and he was willing to take on the additional legwork that occasionally comes up. I can't say enough about Andy's friendly demeanor and level of professionalism. He's a down to earth individual with an honest, no bull style. We look forward to working with Andy again in the future.

My husband and I are making the move from Boston to Lowell and Andy Kaknes has been our worthy guide the whole way. Andy is in-the-know when it comes to the Lowell area in particular. He provided us with constant updates of apartment availability and on multiple occasions arranged for us to view the "hot" units before they were even listed. He offered concerned advice, but did not pressure us one way or the other and never showed us an apartment that didn't include the elements most important to us. Andy is supportive and honest, and keeps working until the customer is satisfied.

Andy Kaknes helped my boyfriend and I find a new loft this past month in Downtown Lowell. I don't think we would have been able to find such a great place without him.We had very specific wants and needs, Andy found us a place that met all of them. He knows the area very well , it was his relationship with the community that helped us scoop up our place before anyone else did. I would recommend Andy to anyone looking to rent or own, he pays attention to detail, bends over backwards to be available, and is up front and honest. Thank you Andy!!!

Andy Kaknes and the entire team at James Marcora Realty earned my respect and trust both as professionals and people. Andy and I remain close friends and he continues to provide advice in all aspects of home and home services.
