Kevin helped us every step of the way in selling our Santa Clara home. From staging the house to packing our belongings, to arranging all the various trades people to ready the house for sale, He was prompt and efficient in every regard and in touch with us daily. He responded to our every question and need on a timely basis. He was friendly and reassuring and very professional at all times. I recommend his realty services very highly. He helped us with every aspect of the paperwork and all the small details in closing our sale in less than 10 days! He is a true pro!

If you are selling your real estate, I highly recommend Kevin Garvey. He walked us smoothly from the beginning to the end of selling our property. His reminders and making our move gave us time to make ourselves prepared. Thank you so much Kevin.

After 65 plus days on the market with no offers with another Realtor, we hired Kevin and in just 7 days we had multiple offers (over 14) many over list price.
Since this was a trustee sale, we were anxious to finalize everything as quickly and professionally as possible — especially as I live out of state.
Kevin was able to expedite the process and get us a quick close so we could move on. In addition he gave us names of various professionals who could help us expedite sale of household goods and furniture. MAHALO Kevin for all you great service from the Marowelli Family!

Kevin was wonderful to work with. He made it so easy for us beginners to complete the transaction, and made himself available to us. He always kept in touch, and was very knowledgeable about the contracts and helped us spot loopholes. He is completely trustworthy and we'd recommend him any time.

Not having sold any property in quite a few years, I was seeking someone that would be diligent, honest and knowledgeable. Kevin came with a very high recommendation from a friend and so I thought I would talk to him and see if he really was that good. He was.
I inherited the house from my mother and it contained 68 years of her things that needed to be sorted, gone through and either discarded or donated in a short period of time. Kevin organized this, hired the help, did the advertising and listed the house.
He said he could sell it in a week or two which fit with my time line. He held one open house, go a very good qualified offer and sold the house in less than one week.
He had references of the title insurance, attorney and places for the donations which all ran very smoothly. If I had another property to sell, Kevin would be my first phone call.
He is professional, personable and knowledgeable about the real estate industry. I owe a debt of gratitude for making the whole process simple and painless.
Thank you, Kevin F. Garvey of Realty World.

We met Kevin twice when we were looking for homes for our children. The first impression we had of Kevin and his team is that they were really thorough with diligent follow through actions. We did not make an offer with him the first time, yet we received e-mail updates on properties that might interest us until we found the right home for our daughter in 2017.

Fast forward to 2019. We were looking at a home for our son that Kevin listed. This time we made an offer. He met our entire family and took a liking to us.
He worked very closely with us and made sure we presented a clean offer the seller would consider. The house was very competitively priced and we expected strong competition. Working with him, our son got the home at a price that they could afford.

In today's red hot real estate market where price competition trumps all, it is comforting to know that sales professionals and sellers still value human relationships and what that means to folks who like to settle in the area.

Kevin and his team are a great asset to our local real estate community, sellers and buyers alike. We thank him for that.

Kevin and his team were truly outstanding. His market expertise, industry knowledge, honesty, integrity, responsiveness and attention to detail really set him apart from the competition. I live out of state and he went WAY above and beyond all expectations to clear, stage and sell my house. If you want to sell your house quickly and with complete confidence, hire Kevin. He will blow you away!

Kevin Garvey completed a very complicated sale that lasted over six months in changing marketing conditions. He complied with all real estate and legal requirements involved in the process. He showed himself to be professional, knowledgeable, capable and committed to making a sale when others would have given up. He kept me informed all along the way. I am happy to recommend him.

Kevin is the best! From the start of our deciding to sell our home of 36 years through closing, he was a constant source of help, knowledge and support. After living in our home and collecting "things" for so long, my husband and I were at a loss as how to start the process. Kevin and his team provided packing supplies, personal assistance and direction on how to begin sorting and purging 'stuff' before putting our home on the market. Kevin's advice on how to best get the house ready for market was invaluable. His experience was greatly appreciated as we worked our way through offers and ended up with a good outcome in the way of a buyer and completed sale. My husband and I would highly recommend Kevin Garvey to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.

Keven lessened the stress of selling my home of 37 years and the subsequent move. He was at once low-key, knowledgeable, honest, and an excellent communicator , explaining the ins and outs of the real estate business.

In a changing market, he was very resourceful, effecting a positive conclusion to the sale. My thanks and appreciation go out to him and his able team. I highly recommend them.

A typical silicon valley buyer
We are lucky to have met Kevin for our second home purchase. Already been a homeowner, I was wondering what a realtor can further provide me since I already have the needed knowledge. After more than a month, Kevin closed the deal for our dream house, I know Kevin is not an ordinary realtor. Our case is more involved than a typical simple cash handover purchase. It requires lots of professional, honest and objective judgement and thinking. Kevin acted like a wise elderly who gave us advice and make things happen. Kevin doesn't feel like a realtor or businessman, is not driven by commission but by his sense of responsibilities. I put my money and decision in good hands.

His team is also very professional with streamlined protocol. Doing careful and responsive work. After everything is settled, I receive a CD with all documents cleanly organized. I bet I'll find it very helpful at least when I sell the house.

I can highly recommend Kevin Garvey as he helped me thru the process of selling
my home of 30 years+. He listened to what I was saying and help me make decisions based on what would be best for me. There was no pressure but yet he kept me moving forward to complete the sale very fast. James, in his office is excellence with the paper work and keeping me informed with what was happening.

Kevin Garvey is a wonderful realtor. From start to finish, he is professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. We first hired him 3 years ago, then decided to wait to sell. Kevin and his staff helped us box up and move out most of our things. We subsequently decided to wait to list, then contacted him again a few months ago. He and his staff have been responsive, kind, and amazingly helpful before, during, and after the sale of our home of 27 years.

I first met Kevin several years ago and was impressed by his manner and philosophies, particularly with helping seniors transition. When we decided to move, I called Kevin first to represent us in the sale. He was phenomenal. He helped us with every aspect, including things like bringing over boxes as needed, volunteering help, at his expense. He took all the worries and hassles out of the process. Kevin has a great deal of integrity. You can believe and trust what he tells you. Oh and this made an impression. When I met with the title company to fill out the final papers, the lady there remarked that she loved dealing with Kevin's sales because the paperwork was always perfect first time, a rarity.

Kevin did a terrific job marketing and selling our property. His deep expertise showed throughout. He took the time to explain the process to us and advise on best ways to reach potential buyers. All our expectations were met, including the over-asking sales price. All in all it was a smooth process and everything went according to script, largely thanks to Kevin's experience and follow through.

Kevin was very helpful throughout the whole process of finding and buying a home, which can be very difficult during these times. He did not let us get discouraged and it finally paid off. We are very happy.

We have had the utmost pleasure of working with Kevin since 2014 when we originally purchase our Santa Clara/Bohannon tract home. He helped us get it for a good price, even though we were in a bidding war he made the difference of working the numbers so we came out the winners. And now unfortunately due to a unforeseen change in employment we were forced to sell our lovely home way too soon. Not only did Kevin list it directing us with his sage advice but he had it sold before they could get the sign in the front lawn, and for way over asking price. My only wish is that he could represent us in the new area that we are moving to, but sadly that is not the case. He is genuinely a good man, good listener, and very passionate and dedicated in providing the best possible service available. We have nothing but praise for him helping us to navigate through one of the most stressful times of buying and selling a home. He is not only our real estate agent, but definitely considered a good friend.

Working with Kevin was a very pleasant experience. A year ago we were not sure we would move, but asked Kevin to come over and advise work that needed to be done if we did plan to sell. He gave us good advice and kept in touch without being intrusive; a year later we were happy to list our home with Kevin.

Kevin is extremely responsive, organized and easy to work with. We always knew the next step in the process and appreciated the time he took to explain everything, from the initial listing through home inspections and buyer loan approvals. He appeared with boxes as we were trying to tidy up for an open house. We had not realized how necessary they would be, and appreciated his unsolicited help.

We feel that Kevin really understands the local real estate market. He was able to give us solid data and comparisons, but left decisions on dates and prices to us. We would definitely recommend Kevin Garvey to future clients; he did a great job for us.

Kevin was most professional and extremely helpful with the sale of our home. We depended on him for a fast but profitable result as we had a contingent bid on another home out of state. Kevin was remarkable and kept in constant communication with us from details,updates, open houses and offers until the final transaction! In my opinion, he delivered in the end and very expertly serves the Santa Clara Valley area with his broad knowledge and many years of experience.
I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone interested in selling their home.
Sincerely, Rick Pedley
