Buying and Selling in Larchmont
Knowledgeable, hard working, patient, honest, enthusiastic are just a few of the qualities that come to mind when we thought about our wonderful agent Kaitlan Cantwell. She was recommended by close friends of ours, and now we couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. We looked for over three years, and we were incredibly picky. Kaitlan never got frustrated with our nitpicking of houses, nor did she ever push us or make us feel uncomfortable. When we sought her guidance and opinion, she was always very forthcoming, clear, and confident in her rationale. In the end, Kaitlan gave us appropriate encouragement on a house and we bought it. We couldn’t be happier with the house and all that Kaitlan did for us. She managed the process and figuratively held our hands every step of the way. We genuinely felt that she looked out for us and had our best interest in mind. Through the years we became friends with Kaitlan and her family which speaks volumes about the bond she forms with her clients. My wife and I feel truly blessed to work with her and to know her.

Buying and Selling
We utilized Kaitlan to both buy and sell our current/old homes and could not be more effusive in our praise for her! My husband and I appreciated her in-depth knowledge of the market and her love of data. She readily shared the market analytics to ensure we were informed every step of the way, setting realistic expectations and guiding us through the process of both listing our home and putting in a bid in for our current home - through to the closings for both transactions. She went above and beyond to help ready our home for sale, and of course during the inevitable stressful moments during the process, she was always available to answer any question, meet a vendor, and to share her perspective that kept us calm, cool and collected. We could not recommend her more highly!!

Kaitlin is a thoughtful, detail-oriented, solid professional and partnered with us through the stressful process of selling our home. Highly recommend Kaitlin to anyone looking to sell, rent or buy.

Kaitlan is one of the rare individuals who is able to combine thorough professionalism with absolute humility and kindness. It was such a joy working with her as she helped us find our dream home in Westchester and guided us through the entire process, helping us recommend the people to work with, even contractors, to do some work in the house, post purchase. As a fellow transplant from NYC, she picked up on our various needs and guided us through many local customs and town laws. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Kaitlan Cantwell on three different real estate transactions over the last 3 years. Each time, Kaitlan made the process simple and easy, while securing great outcomes.
Kaitlan’s knowledge of the market is impressive and her work ethic is exceptional. She was always on call, ready to help with any situation or answer the smallest question. Kaitlan went way above and beyond, to handle every detail of the listing, sale and closing. She even volunteered, after the closing, to handle several post closing items that arose. More importantly, her positive, upbeat demeanor made her a pleasure to work with.
During each transaction, her expertise, advice and focused approach led to outcomes that far exceeded our wildest expectations, in every way. Kaitlan is a true professional, always putting our needs above all else. My wife and I would highly recommend Kaitlan to any home buyer, seller, renter or renter with the highest confidence.

Kaitlan helped us find a home in Larchmont and navigate an out-of-state move from Maryland to New York. She was extremely responsive and knowledgeable and went out of her way to make the process smooth for us. She truly is truly patient and helps you to find the right home for your family. Patient I must emphasize again... becuase buying a home in New York is an entirely different animal compared to other states- we felt like first timers. We can't say good enough things about our experience working with Kaitlan!
- October 11, 2019
Kaitlan is THE BEST ! We were looking for over two years and were not familiar with the area at all. Kaitlan was so incredibly patient with us and must have shown us over 30+ homes before we found "ours" in Mamaroneck. Kaitlan is the consummate professional, so knowledgeable about the local market, school systems, etc. Being a first time buyer she even helped educate us on the mortgage lending process explaining each step along the way -- multiple times =:-) It was our pleasure to have had Kaitlan represent us and in the end we have a new friend!

Buying a House
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kaitlan! We looked for a house for well over 2 years and not once did I feel like she was going to give up on us. In fact, just when we started to really get tired of looking and really feel like we weren't going to find a house she stayed positive and wouldn't let us settle. And I'm so glad she did because after a few more months of looking we found our dream home!! Kaitlan is so well versed in the area. She knows every block, how far it is to the train, property values, community info etc. Also, I never once felt like she was pushing us or selling us on a house...I felt like she was a consultant working WITH us to find our dream home. She was so patient with all of our first time buyer questions and jitters and never once seemed annoyed by the all of the questions, texts, phone calls, emails etc. And there were a lot : ) In addition to finding us our dream house she helped guide us through all of the various steps that come after you receive an accepted offer. Kaitlan is wonderful, so professional and just a great person to work with! I cannot say enough great things about her, she is the best!! We are forever grateful to her!!!

Selling and Buying a Home
We had a great experience with Kaitlan Cantwell. She's smart, personable, and a consummate professional with deep knowledge of the Sound Shore communities. We always felt that she was on our side and ready to analyze the many situations that came our way. She did a wonderful job staging our home and showing it in the best possible light. She gave us good advice when the dog days of summer arrived without any serious bids. When the market woke up again and we were faced with competing bids, she steered us toward the best one. Throughout the process, she was honest, encouraging, and upbeat. For most of us, dealing with Westchester real estate isn't going to be stress-free, but Kaitlan did an amazing job at keeping us from panicking. Now that we're happily settling into our new home, we appreciate even more her efforts on our behalf. Thanks, Kaitlan! Full marks!More

Highly likely to recommend Kaitlan!
My husband and I were referred to Kaitlan and we are so glad we were! Kaitlan is very knowledgable about Larchmont and all the surrounding towns which was incredibly helpful to get a solid understanding of where we wanted to purchase. She was very patient while we looked at a variety of house styles in different neighborhoods over a 6 month window to start to narrow down what we liked. We were consistently impressed with her professional approach for providing us with market data to ensure we were making a smart decision. She made herself available around our schedule and really listened to what we were looking for and we now own our dream home! Kaitlan helped us through every step of the process and now we couldn't be more thankful to Kaitlan. We highly recommend her!!!

Buying a Home
We felt so fortunate to have found Kaitlan as people who were moving to Larchmont from out of state with little prior knowledge of the area. Kaitlan went above and beyond to show us around town and help us understand the market here, as well as provided much needed support and advice throughout our whole home buying process. We absolutely love our new home and credit Kaitlan for helping to find the perfect place for us. To top it off, Kaitlan is so kind and fun to be around so working with her couldn’t have been more enjoyable. I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pleasant, smooth home-buying experience. Kaitlan, thanks for everything!!

"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."
