Why Advantage Main Line
What our clients say
Chris is a fantastic real estate agent I would recommend him to anyone.
We are so thankful to Eva for helping us find and buy the perfect first home. Knowing how much we loved the house, she made it a point to let us know when another offer was made so that we wouldn’t miss out, and boy, are we glad she did! Eva really understood what we were looking for, and took the time to make sure that we had it all. We are truly lucky to have had Eva on our side throughout the whole process, and would certainly recommend her to anyone going through the process.
We’ve worked with Cathy for many years and she has sold two houses for us. Very professional, knows the market, has great contacts to help with staging, inspections, repairs, etc. Cathy got us a great price when we sold our last house earlier this year. Would highly recommend her services and will definitely use her again.
Kathe O’Donovan is the best! She helped me find the perfect home! She was with me every step of the way and I felt confident with her knowledge, professionalism and guidance. I am so grateful for everything she did for us!
Danielle and Kathe were simply outstanding in all aspects of the sale of my Mom’s home. We started months ago preparing the house for sale and their advice on the work to be done and enlisting the various contractors went far beyond what we expected. The preparation and due diligence undertaken in pricing the house made us very confident we had the right pricing strategy. Lastly, they showed patience and persistence negotiating the sale and bringing it to completion with a challenging buyer. They truly did a fantastic job from start to finish!
I appreciated not only Kathe’s attention to detail and follow-up, but also her consideration, tact, and sympathy in dealing with emotional issues that, at least for us, went along with these events. I know it must have sometimes been difficult for her, but she handled it well, both as a professional and a friend.
Kathe exemplifies everything that a Realtor should be. She arrived at our home armed with years of data that she, personally, had collected specific to our neighborhood for years of sales and re-sales of the same house. She asked us to really showcase the home with more neutral tones and decor to entice the younger buyers who prefer beige and gray (our tastes run to warm, traditional hues). We followed her advice. She then did the unthinkable, she raised the price from the prior listing. Within weeks of listing, we had one very well qualified offer for almost full asking price with another in the wings. Not only is Kathe professional but she is kind and a great listener. I wish we hadn’t moved because I feel like we would have become good friends!
After moving from Cleveland to Philadelphia, we looked at houses for 8 months to no avail. We then were put in contact with Eva McKendrick, who assured us that not all was lost and that we would find a house. We successfully bid on a beautiful Bryn Mawr property within 3 weeks that we are delighted with. Eva aggressively looked for homes prior to their hitting the market. Furthermore, she was able to point out a home’s potential and pitfalls along with appropriate pricing. She was knowledgeable about both the communities and fair market value. We would recommend Eva without hesitation!
Kathe O’Donovan is an outstanding real estate agent. She is honest, dedicated, never discouraged and ready to go way beyond her job description to make things happen. Kathe is truly a can-do, intelligent, hard-work dream partner.
I had the pleasure of working with Cathy Hamilton of Berkshire Hathaway Fox Roach Realtors on a recent listing in Bryn Mawr, PA. Cathy was one of three Realtors we interviewed to handle this sensitive estate listing. After viewing the house Cathy made some excellent recommendations on where we might best invest the estate’s money into the property. Her recommendations were not overstated and not done to make her job easier but to show the property in the best possible light. In looking back at what we did I can say that her ideas were spot on. Throughout the listing process Cathy was our boots on the ground for the many things we needed in handling this property from a long distance. She was always available to meet contractors and secure estimates and from the first day she went above and beyond her duties as the listing agent. She was truly helping us manage this asset until it was sold. Once she secured a buyer she again went the extra mile for both buyer and seller to ensure a smooth contract period and an even smoother final settlement. I would very highly recommend Cathy to list a property of this type in the Bryn Mawr area. I can say without exception that we sold this property at the price and terms we hoped for in large part to the way Cathy did her job. A true professional!
We just wanted to thank Danielle for her patience and knowledge throughout our home buying journey. Danielle was fabulous to work with. She, along with Kathe, helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for everything!
Kathe is a true expert in her field. Without her, we truly would not have been successful in purchasing our dream home. Kathe knows the Main Line, and the surrounding area, inside and out, and really guides you through the home buying process. Her years of experience benefited us greatly when faced with a competitive bid situation. Her guidance was spot on and we are so appreciative for all she did to help us throughout the process.
Our family contacted Kathe O’Donovan after two years of fruitless listings with other agents. She made regular visits to suggest cost-effective ways of improving the attractiveness of the property. She took it upon herself to recommend contractors for a few essential repairs and oversee their work. There was never a problem getting in touch with her with our concerns and questions. Kathe was a godsend to our family in consummating a major undertaking.
Danielle O’Connor is an extremely professional, knowledgeable, and responsive agent to have work for you. She used her fabulous negotiation skills to make sure my husband and I got the best deal possible. She was able to answer all of our first time home buyer questions. Danielle made sure to educate us and keep us calm during the emotional process. Danielle was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend to anyone. She was attentive, quick to respond, and a joy to be around. Danielle made all the paperwork easy, and we couldn’t be happier in our new home.
Kathe helped us to find the exact home we wanted to purchase. She also sold our home in a short amount of time. We were scaling down and she led us through the process, showing us many options.
Kathe was a complete pleasure to work with when selling our house.I felt that she understood the best features of my home, how to market it, and the right price range. I had a signed agreement at the end of the first week. Any bumps in the road to settlement (there are always some) were professionally and quickly handled. It was great to work with a real professional.
Our agent, Kathe O’Donovan, was excellent in all respects. She exceeded our high expectations. Her colleagues were also helpful and professional.
Kathe is a veteran realtor who has great negotiating skills. She found our house 25 years ago for a great price and helped us sell it last month for an excellent gain. She has just helped us find a great carriage house also and she again negotiated an excellent purchase price for us. Whenever we had an issue in selling or buying Kathe helped advise us on how to best handle things. I considered selling my house on my own but having Kathe’s expertise to solve the many glitches we ran in to was certainly worth it. Thanks to Kathe for helping us successfully downsize!
Kathe did so much to make the sale of our home happen. It was wonderful dealing with her, and should we ever find ourselves moving back to the area, we will be calling Kathe!
As first time home buyers, my wife and I knew going into the process that we would need someone with a thorough understanding of the local neighborhoods and who could guide us step by step through each process and thought that was involved in the home buying process. We couldn’t be more thankful to have had Danielle O’Connor be that realtor to work alongside us during such an important time in our lives! Being a local resident herself for many years, Danielle immediately helped us narrow our housing search and assisted in refining our house criteria, helping us to gain a new perspective on the value of prospective homes, both in current state and potential. Not only was Danielle incredibly responsive and flexible in coordinating house viewings (especially in tight windows in a hot seller’s market), but she also had the patience and creativity to help us imagine what a house could be with some updates. From the search all the way through the closing, Danielle provided the level of detail and insight that we needed in order to feel comfortable we were making the right decisions. The search for the perfect house is a tedious process and we owe Danielle a huge thank you for all of her hard work and guidance in helping us find our new home!
Kathe O’Donovan has been our real estate agent for over 30 years. We are lucky to have her. She understands the local market like no one else. She has invested her time dedicated to research and building her skills to make her the top performer she is. Kathe’s negotiation skills are over the top. Kathe always keeps her clients in mind and understands how to place an initial offer and where it will eventually land. Consider contacting Kathe if you are planning a move in the near future. You will be impressed with her professionalism and true loyalty to her customers. Thank you, Kathe.
I really enjoyed working with Kathe – she was the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with and I would recommend her to anyone.
We are extremely grateful for all the time and effort spent by Kathe during our quest to find a home. Kathe did a remarkable job understanding our needs and assisting us in finding the perfect home for our family.
Kathe and her team made everything so easy. We always felt they had our best interests at heart.
I was given Kathe’s name by a neighbor after some frustration with another realtor with whom we had been working. Within a few minutes of our first phone conversation, I realized how knowledgeable she was about the area and that she would be a good fit for us. Kathe helped us buy our new home and sell our old home. In both instances, we feel like we were well represented and got the best outcomes possible. She made the whole process as easy as it could possibly be and we are so grateful!
Danielle was the best! As first time buyers, we had some ideas for what we wanted in a house but she knew what we needed as well. She was always available and made us feel like a priority. I would definitely recommend her and would use her again. She helped us get an amazing house and walked us through everything.
Kathe went above and beyond! We have our house because of her. She understood what we were looking for and she got it for us.
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra – Danielle has it. We have multiple properties and have been advised on management, interior design, and tenancy. Danielle is a go-getter. No matter the real estate need, she has the resources and drive to make things happen.
I don’t know where the next job will be – I’m hoping it’s back to Philadelphia – but I’ll depend on Advantage Main Line to help us find another great home.
Danielle was amazing! She made sure we got our offer in during a competitive bidding process even while she was on vacation! Without her, we would have lost the house to another family. She knows the area’s ins and outs and was able to walk us through every step of the home buying process.
Cathy has been our agent for all three of our homes on both the buy and sell side. She has intimate knowledge of the Main Line real estate market and knows how to diplomatically overcome obstacles to make a deal happen. My wife and I found her to be a great resource.
