"Kevin was so efficient, honest, and helpful in helping my husband and I find our home! He really listened to what we were looking for to help narrow down our search. He actually presented the listing that ended up being the home we decided on; we didn't find it online on our own. That demonstrated how much he took into account our needs and preferences. He knew the area really well and was easily reachable via text, email and phone at any time. It's daunting trying to find someone you can trust just by looking online when you don't have personal references, so we feel really fortunate that we decided to go with Kevin because he is on the ball, level-headed, and trustworthy. A great agent for sure!" - Swapna

"Kevin Kinney was a wonderful Real Estate agent. I would recommend him to anyone. He got me the best deal that he could on selling my house. He was so helpful even to the point where he helped me get ride of things in the house. Since I lived an hour away he kept a close eye on an empty house. He was excellent in every aspect helping me sell my house."

"Kevin is a straight-shooter, no pressure agent. He helped me buy and sell my house. Used him to sell because of the way he conducted and handled himself. Highly recommend Kevin!" - Paul

"Kevin took over the complete sale of our family home with a professional, organized and patient manner and helped me when my real estate knowledge ended. His pricing, expertise and real estate knowledge to get the best price for our family home in Livingston NJ, was an extreme success. His strategy worked and we came in over the original asking price! He knew the area of our county in the New Jersey market and the potential our home offered and what needed to be upgraded. He always reminded us we had the advantage in the current market and he played it well. Kevin took the worry out of a sentimental sale and saw any concerns that appeared on my face and calmed me down and then guides you to the next step. I would highly recommend Kevin Kinney for the sale of your property!"

"It was a pleasure working with Kevin! He is professional, trustworthy, knowledgable and friendly. Kevin priced and marketed the property to sell quickly - within several weeks! He also helped us work through several issues regarding the home inspection. I highly recommend choosing Kevin as your agent." - Eileen

About Kevin

Focus on the community brings success to agents and clients. When buying a home in a new community, having a local agent invested in the area can be invaluable to a client. The agent’s knowledge and familiarity with the schools, neighborhoods, and residents can ease the client’s fears and help him or her adjust more quickly to the new surroundings. Kevin is a lifelong resident of Essex County and thrives on bringing this sense of community to all of his clients.

Kevin started his real estate career in 1996 after a successful career with The Prudential where he held several different managerial positions before a restructuring at the company presented him with a new opportunity. Having a 10-month-old child at home convinced Kevin to reconsider his occupational goals and pursue a profession that offered unlimited potential and flexibility of a schedule that would allow him to spend quality time with his wife and new son. Selling real estate offered this opportunity and Kevin decided to take the plunge…he has never looked back. Kevin has been very active in real estate, achieving numerous sales awards and honors along the way. Kevin was recognized as Realtor of the Year for the West Essex Board of Realtors in 2006 and also served several years as an officer of the West Essex Board, including President from 2010 to 2012.

Don't just enjoy where you live...Enjoy how you got there. Kevin attributes his success to his approach. "I'm not trying to 'SELL' my clients a house. I want to help them find a 'HOME'. My focus is to find a property that fits their lifestyle and meets most or all of their needs for the foreseeable future." While clients appreciate Kevin's easy going personality, his professionalism and attention to detail have produced not only happy clients, but also a steady stream of referrals for the past 27 years.

As an active part of his community, Kevin is extremely dedicated to giving back. Since 2006 he has organized annual fundraisers for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. The event raises awareness and funds for the research of childhood cancers. To raise money, participants are sponsored to shave their heads in an act of solidarity with children enduring chemotherapy. “It’s a cause that really resonates with me. Though my kids have fortunately always been healthy, I truly believe in giving back because we are blessed." To date, Kevin’s events have raised over $1,250,000 for cancer research. Kevin is also a 18-time shavee, personally raising more than $120,000 for the charity.

Kevin also has been involved in many other charitable organizations. He is a proud member and past President of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh Club in West Orange, NJ. The Shillelagh Club is dedicated to community service and hosts several fundraisers each year, supporting multiple local and national charities. In 2014, Kevin was privileged to be honored as the club’s Man of the Year. In 2009, Kevin received the Outstanding Citizenship Award from the Mayor of West Caldwell, NJ recognizing his charitable work in the community. He also was a recipient of the New Jersey Association of Realtors Good Neighbor Award in 2011.

For Kevin, success is defined in terms outside of himself. His family, clients, and sense of responsibility to the community are what keep him driven to provide the very best each and every day.
