"We can’t imagine having a better agent than Kaitlan. She was recommended by our friends and we couldn't be happier. She is very knowledgeable about the area and activities for the kiddos, thoughtful about the listings she showed us, very honest and open about the pros and cons of each house. She made sure that we understand the potential of each house but never pressured us. We were wavering putting in an offer on a house and told her our concerns and her response was “don’t settle”. In the end, we are in the perfect house for house for us and weren’t pressured into something that wasn’t right. We likely wouldn’t have gotten the house at the price we did if it weren’t for Kaitlan, she took the initiative to set up inspections and to use her network to bring in plumbers, painters, etc. so that we: 1) knew what we were buying and 2) moved quickly enough that other buyers weren’t able to bid up the price. She pulled additional data from the city on properties that we were interest in so that we were well informed buyers. Even after the deal was basically done, she met with painters on our behalf so that we didn’t need to take another trip up from the city. We are first time home buyers and new to the area, and she was there to answer every random question that we had. We highly recommend Kaitlan for her initiative, trustworthiness, and knowledge. "

Kaitlan helped us buy a house after relocating to the area from Los Angeles. We had limited time and changed our minds many times on what we were looking for as we saw more and more houses. Kaitlan was very patient and spent lots of time driving around the area with us until we found the prefect home. She is professional, very knowledgeable on the area, and always responded to our needs so quickly no matter what time of day we reached out! I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely be using her again when it's time to sell or buy another home

"Kaitlan Cantwell helped me and my husband buy our first home. Being beginners in the housing market we had a lot of nerves and a million questions. Kaitlan was always available and more than willing to talk us through the little details of contracts and markets and inspections and everything else under the sun. She contacted us on a Saturday morning to give us a heads up on a home that just hit the market that day and dropped her schedule to meet us that afternoon! That ended up being the home we bought and we would have never managed it without her. She also has a great network of experts (inspectors, oil, bugs etc.) to ensure you are getting a great quality home. We couldn't have done it without her. Thanks Kaitlan!!

Buying a home
We met Kaitlan about a year ago during our search for a home in Larchmont. We had to sell our existing house first so we were in no rush. Kaitlan was extremely patient, emailing homes in our price range for over a year. Knowing nothing about Larchmont or Westchester Kaitlan was there to answer any question we had whether about the commute or good restaurants she literally knew everything. Having grown up in the area she know so much about the market and having children like us she knew exactly what we were looking for. Once we sold our house we had to find something within months. The more anxious we became the more calm and helpful Kaitlan was. She would call us the minute a new house hit the market and meet us to show the house that very day! I can honestly say that if we had a different broker we would have lost the house that we wanted so badly. The market in Larchmont is insanely competitive and things go very quickly. Her knowledge of the market was paramount in us getting the house. She helped with inspectors and lawyers and everything in between. I cannot say enough about Kaitlan and have recently recommended her to my sister in law who is looking in the area. She is truly amazing. If you are looking for a broker who cares and really listens to what you want call her!!!

"Kaitlan is an excellent broker. She worked with us for at least 18 months in our search for a home. She has tremendous patience and is not pushy at all. She works extremely hard for you, and is always detailed and well-prepped for her meetings with clients. Her demeanor is a huge asset and a big differentiator from other brokers. Her easy going, low-pressure style makes the process so much easier. And she is totally trustworthy. A great person and a great broker."

"Kaitlan was wonderful to work with. She kept me in the loop every step of the way and as the sale progressed we were in constant contact on the status. As I moved out of state during the contract period, Kaitlan was my proxy on a number of final details; she truly went above and beyond." Cynthia

We highly recommend Kaitlan. We were in search for a house in Larchmont. She taught us about the neighborhood and the market, helped strategize regarding offers, and assisted with respect to the negotiation. She understood what we were looking for and helped us get it. We still ask for advice regarding local contractors and for other recommendations. We never felt that she was pressuring us through the process; instead, we believe she was rationale, kept us well-informed and went the extra step. She even went to the Department of Buildings to research the house. Young, motivated, good person and great at what she does. Mia & Ron

"Kaitlan is an excellent listener and communicator, always patient, cheerful and available, which was all very helpful to us as we tried to determine the type of house we wanted (changing our minds several times) and in advising us how to navigate a stressful market where houses received multiple bids within hours of being on the market. She clearly knows the area and the people in the market, which inspired a great deal of trust from us as well as sellers and their agents. We really did use her as an advisor and sounding board, not just someone to let us into houses."
"Kaitlan was fantastic to work with! She helped us find the ideal home for our needs and gave us a lot of valuable information along the way. She is very knowledgable about the area and the market in general. Kaitlan was always responsive, patient, and accommodating throughout the sometimes daunting process of finding and purchasing a home. Plus she has been a great resource for contractors, neighborhood tips and more."
"Being a first time homebuyer, the purchasing process can be a bit daunting. To say Kaitlan did a bit of handholding along the way would be an understatement. She really listened and tried to understand what we were looking for in a home. She spent many Saturdays showing us different properties and was always available to answer the million questions we had. Her knowledge of the area and current market was most helpful. When we found the perfect house, Kaitlan helped us to negotiate the price and navigate the steps until closing. I would recommend her over and over again!"
"Kaitlan was very helpful when we were contemplating moving from Manhattan to the suburbs. She gave us a tour of the town and provided us with the information we needed about the neighborhood and schools. She knew our budget and was not pushy at all. She was also very resourceful in getting us the information on property taxes as well as the information from building department. She is very personable and easy to work with, not at all has any attitude. I highly recommend her."
