Kerry was amazing as we were buying our first home. The covid market was super competitive, but Kerry followed up with the seller's agent repeatedly and got us the information we needed to make the strongest offer. We got the house because of her hard work. She knows the right questions to ask, and truly had our best interests at heart when walking us through the process.

Kerry is an incredible real estate agent! We were first time home buyers and she made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process - she was willing to explain next steps and big picture plans multiple times and was very clear with setting expectations. Her negotiation skills were also helpful and she always advocated for our needs in the process. We were able to get the first house we put an offer on with her because she was thoughtful in her approach and persistent when needed. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Kerry Carr was highly recommended to me when I was trying to buy a condo I was renting directly from the owner. I had months of issues and delays trying to deal with it directly so I reached out for her services and it was the best decision I made. She changed the contract language to protect me, helped establish a professional line of communication, helped with closing and helped alleviate all the stress of buying a home. She has my business for life!!

I've been through many home selling experiences and worked with more than a half dozen agents in that process. Let me get to the punchline first, Kerry is far and away the best agent with whom I've ever worked. Here is why, trust! Kerry is of course super knowledgeable on the market, trends and has superior people engagement skills. Kerry is also a master negotiator. She works adeptly with appraisers and buyer's agents to come to the right answer on terms. But the trust she had in me as a seller and the trust she engendered in me as my agent stood out above all. I'll give you an example, my house was sold during the height of Covid-19 sheltering in place, when agents weren't even allowed to show homes. I trusted Kerry to help me identify the right buyer pool to target and the right way to time the market. Her intuition was nothing short of brilliant. The result: My house sold in less time than average and sold for top asking price. Kerry became more than an agent in the process, she became a friend because of the trust that went both ways. The accolades for Kerry's skills and abilities are innumerable. Kerry is simply the best that you could hope for in an agent experience.

In fall 2019, we made the big decision to sell our well-loved yet quirky lived-in family home of 18 years and downsize to a condo. Kerry was our first and only choice. She was there for us through every step, from the initial walkthrough, giving us advice on how to pack our belongings and show our property’s best face. Using Compass’s vast resources, online and hard copy. Kerry set up a showing schedule that maximized our house’s exposure but allowing us to enjoy our time there. Once we had an offer, Kerry and her team protected our interests during negotiations and inspections, kept everyone or everything on schedule, and took us to the final closing as smoothly and painlessly as possible with the highest possible return in our investment. We would recommend Kerry Carr wholeheartedly with no reservations. Carr & Co. has your back.

As first-time homebuyers, Kerry made the entire process a breeze. From the beginning, she took the time to get to know my husband and me, and had a real understanding of what we were looking for. With each and every house we toured she taught us something new about the home buying process, and really took the time to make sure we understood everything. She was attentive, quick to act on properties we were interested in, and maximized our time. Every step of the way she was an incredible source of knowledge and we truly felt like we were in the best hands. Kerry went above and beyond all of our expectations, we enjoyed working with her so much, and without a doubt would recommend her.

Jordan S.

Kerry was excellent top to bottom. Since we were buying our first home, it seemed that no matter how much research that we did there were always endless questions. Kerry's knowledge on literally everything was vital. She was honest with her opinions whether it be about the home's condition, the listing price, the prospect of appreciation, what maintenance issues would come up or need to be worked on, again, she had her eye on everything. She was an expert negotiator as she helped get us our first home for the best possible price, and helped throw in some choice furniture from the previous owner. 10/10 would recommend.

We recently worked with I.J Hines on purchasing a new home. I.J accommodated all of our outrageous specifics to send us listings that met our needs. From touring homes and pointing out potential issues to signing the final paperwork, I.J’s knowledge was invaluable. He really took his time and viewed each listing with a careful eye as if he himself were buying the home. With his help, we were able to find our dream home at a great price! Choose I.J as your agent and you will not be dissatisfied.

Jason L.

I.J was awesome to work with. He was recommended to us by the realtor we had been working with when she had to take a sabbatical. We had our offer accepted on our dream house in a very competitive area, even though we weren’t the highest bid. I.J guided us to a 25-day close which included the pandemic shutdown. He also got us a good offer on our former house within two weeks of going on the market. I.J has great attention to detail, professionalism, and is just a good person to talk to.

Natalie

Kerry was so helpful throughout our home buying process! She was always proactive and willing to meet with us to see houses at any time if the day and weekends. When we did see houses, she was so knowledgeable on the details to look at and think about. Kerry was so patient and encouraging until we find the perfect house! We're so lucky to have had her with us as we purchased or first home!

Jim F.

We can only rate I.J's work in selling our house as exceptional. He has always been prepared and tireless in promoting our house. The aerial and in-house photography, the spot-on advice and calm demeanor, the clear experience and professionalism, all were invaluable and appreciated. We sold quickly and at our price! Thank you, I.J.

Sarah J.

I.J was awesome! He couldn't have been more helpful especially with the stress and confusion of buying my first home. He was patient with any indecisions and was flexible around my hectic schedule. I can't thank him enough for helping me find a house and would 100% use him again in the future. Highly recommended!

Elaine F.

It was a total pleasure working with I.J Hines. He is very experienced, knowledgeable, patient, understanding, and always very pleasant. He sold our house very quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend I.J.

Paul O.

I.J did a terrific job selling my parents' house. Conscientious and communicative, the whole Compass team did a great job of fielding multiple offers and managing showings during Covid. Highly recommended.

Melissa is a very energetic and creative person and would be a great asset to any business or event venue. If you're looking for someone with personality plus, I would recommend Melissa with great confidence.

Kerry Carr is simply a fantastic real estate agent in every sense of the word. From start to finish she was incredibly organized with exactly what needed to be done (much better than any other agents we have used) and was super timely in getting answers. Furthermore, she was supportive and guiding for all price discussions and both listened to our thoughts and needs as well as provided expertise to the varying situations. We priced effectively, got multiple bids, and accepted after the first weekend. She remained great throughout negotiations and helped us while we dealt with life moving around us. Simple, effective, maximum money. Sounds easy, but it is incredibly difficult to do and she manages to do it all while being a great sounding board for all your questions. Most of us will only go through this process a handful of times in life and having a smart, intelligent agent like Kerry truly makes all the difference in the world. Don’t just pay the middleman and pick one out of a hat from a brand on TV hoping you get lucky. You’ve done the research on the homes, now do the research with your agents. Go with the proven winners. Go with Kerry.

Buyer

Kerry is simply the best. I could leave it at that, but I'm going to gush about her. My husband and I were first-time home buyers, we had a number we were not willing to go over, and an idea of what we wanted. I had been looking online and thought that we would never be able to afford a turn-key home in this area. Enter Kerry. Kerry showed us several properties before we found "the one." At each of the previous properties, she could just tell it wasn't what we wanted, and she didn't let us settle or give up. I don't think we would have found our home without her. Kerry's knowledge of the area, market, and all aspects of real estate is what drew us to her. She is the very best. The entire process from the initial offer to settlement went so smoothly that my husband told our friends, "I don't know why anyone gets stressed about buying a home, it was so easy." I couldn't agree more with that he said. Buy or sell with Kerry Carr and you never have any regrets except maybe that you didn't call her sooner. Kerry, thank you again for everything. We have and will continue to tell everyone they need you as their realtor.

Buyer & Seller

We used Kerry to sell our home in June of 2019. Kerry evaluated our home and provided honest feedback with what repairs or updates were truly needed, prior to putting our home on the market. Fortunately, Kerry's list was much shorter than what I imagined. We had our house on the market 3 weeks after meeting Kerry. Kerry listed our house at the top of the market and assured us it was priced right. We had 5 offers over ask the first weekend and were under contract within days of hitting the market. Kerry walked us through a challenging appraisal process. A year later, during the pandemic real estate market with many restrictions, Kerry showed us our dream home. We were under contract within 24 hours of contacting Kerry about the house. Again, Kerry assured us through a hairy appraisal process and we were in our new home 7 weeks later. Kerry also hooked us up with the best mortgage guy in the business. We have been through 7 settlements over the years and this was the smoothest by far. Thanks to Kerry and her team for getting us settled in our new home!

Buyer & Seller

I.J is an even tempered, well informed and interested and kind person. I had interviewed 3 other realtors before deciding on him to help with my house sale. He was in a class by himself and was always available, supportive and willing to go the extra mile (of which there were many). He seemed low keyed but entered into serious negotiation with potential buyers, knew what to agree to and where to draw the line. He is very experienced and could read all the subtitles with skill. He had a lovely sense of humor, was always respectful and though he had to deal with some Challenging personalities along the way, he did that with finesse and sensitivity and in the end I got even more than what I had imagined. If I were in the area and needed to buy or sell a house, I would have no hesitation to ask for his help again. I.J worked hard and totally earned his commission and had my complete support. There was never a moment when I doubted I.Js judgement or opinion about issues related to the house sale. I recommend him with no constraint or hesitation.

Buyer

Melissa was absolutely amazing to work with. She is knowledgeable of the home buying process and very organized. She sent timely reminders to me every step of the way to keep things on track. My home buying experience could not have been better. As a first-time buyer, I had a lot of questions, Melissa was extremely responsive. I knew I could count on her to pick me up anytime and any day of the week. She was very proactive in checking in with me as needed throughout the process. Her passion for home design was also very apparent. She has a keen and creative eye for the true potential of a home. In fact, I ran a lot of ideas that I had by her and she shared my excitement in trying to figure out what I was going to do with my new home. She helped me immensely and truly went above and beyond my expectations. I was nervous about buying my first home, but she made it easy. She actually made it fun! I couldn’t be happier with my experience working with her. I would recommend her to anyone!

Seller

I.J has represented us in both purchase and sale. He is an absolute pro with a deep understanding of the local market and transaction process. It's rare to find someone as talented as I.J also possesses a deep reservoir of patience for explaining the basic mechanics of getting to the closing. In our recent sale, I.J priced the house accurately, coordinated a great open house, and had multiple offers within a few days of going live. He then found us a great agent in Massachusetts for a subsequent purchase and put us in touch with a top-notch lender. His experience and command of the details were demonstrated throughout the sales cycle. Real Estate transactions can be complicated, no matter how well prepared you think you are. There are things that come up that you can't possibly anticipate. We recommend him without reservation, especially for the Phoenixville area.
