Real Estate Reviews

Kelly Powers from Libby Kirwin was referred to me by a friend that spoke highly of her. She has been a pleasure to work with and more importantly knew how to guide me through every inch of the process. She is my “go to” for all things Newport. Couldn’t have made a better choice.

Tammy was great to work with! My military orders moving me to the area came rather late, so I was behind the power curve in finding a place to live. Tammy is part of a military family, so she understands what goes into a PCS move. She stayed in contact with me as we filtered through listings. She is attentive and diligent — having kept my preferences in mind, she was quick to alert me to a great listing that perfectly fit all of my criteria! Once I went forward on the listing, Tammy made the paperwork drill smooth and painless. I highly recommend Tammy for anyone looking to rent in the Newport market!

Enthusiastic, energetic and very pleasant to work with, Simi understood my intentions and worked to make them happen. After the contract was signed, she was so considerate of helping me actuate my move. I highly recommend Simi’s Realestate talents. She is a lovely person and very professional, and attentive.
 –Rochelle O.

Simi is an excellent realtor! We worked with her to help sell our home in Middletown, RI and were highly impressed by her professionalism and commitment to her clients. As a military spouse, she understood our unique situation as a military family and worked hard to support our needs. We would definitely recommend her services!
 –Lauren D.

Tammy Bass is an outstanding realtor. We worked with her for over three years to rent a home in Newport, and then to buy and sell our home in Middletown. She is professional, motivated, and knowledgeable about the local real estate market. It is clear that she cares about her clients and is dedicated to their best interest. As a military spouse, Tammy understood our experience as a military family moving to the area after living overseas and helped us secure the perfect rental despite the distance. In addition, we sold our home when our family was separated due to military orders. Tammy related to the challenges we were facing and went out of her way to support our family during this time of transition. Tammy is a top notch realtor and we couldn’t recommend her services more!

Tammy helped my husband and I find the perfect condo in Newport, RI. Our search extended for over a year because we were looking for that special place that checked all the boxes on our wish list. Tammy worked tirelessly; she has patience and personality that made this process a fun adventure. Right from the start Tammy was a wealth of knowledge about the area and took the time to show us around Newport. Throughout the process she even e-mailed us about news and events in the area. Tammy was always responsive to questions and concerns; answered e-mails, text messages and phone calls quickly and made herself available on weekends and evenings to show us new listings. Through out the process she was always honest and professional. Tammy also helped us secure rental properties on two occasions during this time. I must say that it was a joy to work with her. I can’t imagine having purchased our new condo without her. She is the very best!

Lauren is the best! We found the perfect and she negotiated a great price. We were so happy with her service and we would highly recommend her. Her knowledge of the area was so helpful to the process.
 –Kate Ullucci

I contacted Lauren to help one of my clients find a rental home in Newport. Lauren was very responsive, and the process was smooth and quick. She is very knowledgeable of the Newport area as well as Aquidneck Island in general. She was able to accommodate my client’s price range and found her a beautiful rental in the heart of downtown Newport, steps from her work. I would definitely recommend Lauren to anyone who is looking to rent or buy a house in Rhode Island.

I was moving from out of state, with my boyfriend and dog, which is extra challenging. I sent emails to countless agents, not only was Libby Kirwin the only one to respond, Sarah was so helpful. She listened to what we were looking for, was honest and communicated well. Hopefully we’ll be looking to buy a house in the next few years…our first call will be LKRE!
 –Sarah R.

My wife and I just closed on a house with HUGE help from Sarah. She was always available for our thousands of questions. Her help and enthusiasm made the process smooth and pretty much stress free. We definitely appreciate everything that she did for us. Thank you a ton Sarah!

Sarah Kirwin contacted me to check on the availability of my unit in Newport and was on top of things from day 1. She identified prospective tenants, interviewed them, kept me posted on their status and had the unit rented within a very short time. Sarah is a true professional who took care of all the details from the forms and paperwork to the closing of the deal. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to handle my real estate issues in the future.
 –Dave H.

Sarah is a joy to work with. She’s incredibly knowledgeable about the area and is well connected with the local community. Therefore, she has the inside scoop on the best listings to fit what you’re looking for. Working with her was seamless, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in southern RI.

Monica was exceptionally responsive via text and phone. Her communication was direct and polite; she was sensitive yet professional when delivering updates on my search – good or not so good. Monica capably walked through the steps in the process and answered all my questions as we navigated the paperwork, too. Plus, she does it all with a smile and didn’t shy away from a big hug when we found my place!
 –Nora M.

Sarah Kirwin Brady is an expert realtor. Sarah listed my unit and found a prospective rental occupant for our newly renovated residence.

Efficiency and attention to detail were excellent. She assisted new tenant renting for an early occupant. I recommend Sarah for all your real estate sales and rentals.
 –Greg F.

Sarah was incredible! She not only found us the perfect apartment in under a weeks time, she has been seamless in all communication with her. She is the perfect realtor to go to if you need someone who is reliable, diligent and friendly! I would 100% work with Sarah in the future!

Lauren was Extremely helpful! We currently live overseas, and needed to work our entire house search by email. She was very responsive and accommodating. Lauren worked with our schedule and completed the viewings via FaceTime. She was incredibly professional, and we will certainly recommend her to colleagues.

Very professional, attentive, and accessible. Made the closing and move in process easy. I am in the Navy, so moving can be very hectic sometimes. Not only did Monica provide me with All the information I needed, she was flexible enough to work around my schedule. The evening I arrived in newport she showed me a property. The entire process was completed just a few days later.
 –A. Johnson

Monica was great! I gave her all the criteria we needed for a summer rental and she got back to me with the perfect match the next day! I would definitely contact her again for help in the future.
 –E. Edgington

Monica was such a blessing during my rental hunt! Best agent around. Super friendly and unbiased. Worked with my budget and found me the perfect apartment in less than a month. I was surprised by her flexible schedule and patience. I called other agencies and I did not receive any respect due to my low budget. I would recommend Monica to anyone! I look forward to working with Monica again in the future.
 –Emma L.

Monica is an absolutely amazing agent! I first spoke with Monica over the phone on a Friday night and she asked me numerous detailed questions in regards to what I was looking for. Being a Friday night, I expected to hear from Monica the following week; however I received an email from Monica half an hour later with almost 20 links to rentals she personally found for me!!!

Her quick responsiveness was always reliable, and she was literally only a text or phone call away. She worked so hard to get the perfect rental for my husband and I (which was not easy since we have a dog).

If you have the pleasure to work with Monica you will NOT be disappointed!!!! I recommend her to everyone I speak with! Thank you so much again Monica, I will speak to you when we are ready to purchase a home!!
 –Hannah L.

My experience working with Libby Kirwin was wonderful, flawless, and really so much fun. She is the best, with so many talents, experience, know-how, and know-all. It is very unusual to all these talents in one individual. I would highly recommend her to everyone and anyone from buying a place to renting a place, and from decorating a place to everything in between. As one can see I have become a Libby Kirwin believer, follower, and want to thank her for the way she successfully managed her business with our condo. She is genuine, very considerate , a great pleaser, and values her clients time.
 –Deb McGrath

If you are looking for a home or looking to remodel your home before or after you sell or buy, do check out the excellent work done by Libby Kirwin and her team. Impressive. I used Libby when we put my mom’s house on the market and Libby had the 50 plus year old home sparkle with a few simple updates. Love you Libby!
 –Deborah Loeffler

Within 24 hours of my introductory email to Libby she and my sister had set up a time to walk through her house. “I love her!” were the first words out of my sisters mouth when I asked how the initial meeting went. Libby and her team coordinated and executed an amazing makeover of the property. Libby’s eye for design transformed the property into a buyers dream.
 –Lauren Dana

Our experience with Libby was nothing short of amazing! Libby was an amazing advocate on our behalf. Libby is Extremley professional, but she was also very warm and understanding of our specific situation and concerns. If you’re looking for a tireless fighter, who knows the buisness inside and out, someone who will constantly make you feel like their number 1 priority, look no further then Libby.
 –Patrick Doyle

Libby has tremendous visibility into the Newport real estate market. She is friendly and professional at all times. She steered me away from a property that she thought was not right for me even though it meant a possible loss of revenu to her. That is the definition of an unbiased professional. I recommend Libby whole-heartedly to anyone.
 –Mark Whitcher

I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah Kirwin-Brady twice in securing tenants for my rental properties. I so enjoy working with her and securing suitable folks for both properties. She is oh so pleasant, knowledgeable, prompt with her replies and just a delight to work with. Her outgoing personality, ready smile and great insight into both tenant and owners’ needs is an asset to your agency. Always an enjoyable experience working with her.
 –Kay Kosinski

After meeting Libby Kirwin and discussing my vision for the Carey School Residences, I knew Libby was the right broker for the project. Libby’s enthusiasm, professionalism and creativity were exactly what I needed to complete the Carey School Residences team. From her input on design elements to unit staging to social media marketing she and her team always had the right ideas. Every step of the way, my confidence in our business relationship remained undoubtedly strong until the final closing. Libby and her office successfully sold all thirteen units within seven months of project completion. Thank you Libby Kirwin and her team. I look forward to our next development project.
