"I can’t speak highly enough of Kevin Manafi as my real estate agent. Kevin helped me buy a home during the craziness of the 2022 market, and I was amazed at his professionalism, patience, and level of detail while we navigated very frustrating multiple offer situations, over-asking price offers, waived contingencies, and everything else that came with the frenzied market. Somehow, despite all of the competition, Kevin not only ended up finding me my dream home...but he got it for me almost $10k UNDER asking price, and kept all of my contingencies!! I truly respect and appreciate his integrity as an agent—in months of searching for a home, he never once pushed me to buy or even make an offer on a property unless I felt completely comfortable. I highly, highly recommend Kevin Manafi as your go-to real estate agent!!!"

"I worked with Kevin Manafi in the spring/early summer of 2021 to find a nice rental for my toddler and I. Given that I have a young daughter, I had a very specific list of criteria and things that were nonnegotiable for me in any property. Even with the challenging rental market at the time and very limited options, Kevin was extremely patient, thorough, organized, and transparent throughout the process. He had a great grasp on what I was looking for from the start, and he always took the time to vet any potential options that could work for me. His communication skills are top-notch as he is extremely responsive and always replies in a very timely matter, and always explains things in a way that is easy to understand. He found a place that had everything I wanted and fit within my budget—I like it so much he helped me renew my lease for another 12 months when I was only planning to stay for a year! I highly recommend working with Kevin and will be using him to purchase my first home soon enough!"

"Kevin did great research to meet my criteria. After 3 or 4 full time showing days we submitted a couple offers. I am glad that he understood what I wanted to own, that’s why I did not need more showing days. It took forever to complete transaction but it was worth it, Kevin always reply to me as soon as we had a move at the deal. He knows all what you need for closing. Referred couple of great lawyers, insurance companies, home inspectors and constructions guys. I highly recommend Kevin Manafi, this is our first deal but not the last one. Thank you!"

"I have worked with Kevin in the past and it was absolutely a great experience. He helped me purchase a house in North NJ in the fall of 2022 and he was tremendous start to finish. He made it a completely seamless process by providing great vendors to work with such as getting me pre approved with a lender at a low rate, home inspectors, and getting me situated with a great insurance broker. I'm definitely going to use Kevin again for my next rental property considering he is highly knowledgeable on investment properties and he has his finger on the pulse of the real estate market in North Jersey. Whether you are searching for your primary residence, looking to list your home, or tackling your next rental/flip I can't recommend him enough!"

About Kevin
Real Estate isn’t just my job—it’s my passion. I’m a born-and-raised New Jerseyan from Bergen County who loves helping buyers, sellers, investors, and renters alike with all their real estate needs! I’ve lived in Northern New Jersey my entire life, having attended public schools and University here too—so you can feel confident that you’re working with someone who has a plethora of local market knowledge. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or a first-time home seller; a brand-new investor or a seasoned one; or anywhere in between, I’m here to help. I take the time to understand each of my clients on a deeper level to learn about their specific needs and investment objectives, explaining unfamiliar concepts, processes, and legalese.

You may be wondering—what sets me apart? Perspective, skillset, and experience.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Rutgers Business School, where I graduated top of my class. Prior to becoming a Realtor®, I spent several years working in Finance in Corporate America, including a role with a large, nationwide commercial real estate developer. As such, I have the skills and experience to help my clients evaluate real estate from a financial lens. I actively invest in real estate all over North Jersey, including flips and rental properties. Naturally, I specialize in working with investors due to my unique ability to assist with underwriting and deal analysis.

If you’re looking for an honest, experienced, patient, and detail-oriented real estate advisor—look no further.
