Angela is a pleasure to work with. She is a true professional and kind and caring and honest! I don’t know when or if she sleeps! She is on top of everything! Angela sold my home in North Salem a few months ago in a very tough market. I will always be grateful for her support and work ethic!

Angela is the agent you want working with you - knows the market, knows the area, knows what it takes to get a house sold, and will be by your side every step of the way.

We interviewed a few realtors before selecting Angela as our selling agent. Initially, we focused on  the fact that she is a top seller in our housing market, she’s local to the area, and seemed to know, from our interview discussions, what buyers are looking for in our area. Her track record speaks for itself, but, after meeting with her, her professionalism and personality come across as well, which provided us with the comfort level we needed as we embarked on this process.

Once we started working with Angela, it was clear that she was fully prepared to work with us every step of the way, making herself accessible via phone, text, and e-mail any time we needed her. It was important to us to have a plan and to be able to move relatively quickly to get our house on the market. Having not been in the market for over 20 years, we needed to be able to rely on Angela for the “must do” steps (such as replacing our in-ground oil tank with an above-ground tank). Angela’s experience with how buyer and loaner demands have changed was especially critical. Angela helped us to understand the value of transforming our house with a short-term investment to increase the potential to attract a buyer and to meet those demands.

With Angela, it wasn’t just about what to do, but who could get it done. From the professional photographer to the painters to the stager and even to the real estate lawyer, she put us in contact with quality people to get everything done well and on a timely basis. Angela really encouraged us to stage our house but worked very collaboratively with us as we decided what we would and would not be willing to do. And, even though she brought others to the table, she was often at our house to make sure everything was moving along as expected.

Once we got to the point of listing our house, Angela made sure that we got the right kind of exposure on the various web sites to maximize the buyer pool (especially Zillow!), highlighting the advantages of our house and selecting photos that showcased the property, both inside and out. Angela provided valuable perspective and advice when it came to setting a price by providing a recommendation and explaining why it would put us in the best position --- but she left the final decision up to us. Fortunately, we followed her advice and didn’t let emotion factor into the decision (everyone thinks their house is worth more than the market may bear).

We were fortunate to get an offer relatively quickly, when considering how the rest of the market was moving. Even as we worked through the final negotiations and details in preparation for closing, which did include some challenges along the way, Angela was a positive influence and an encouraging voice --- definitely helped during a very stressful time. As we look back on the process and the experience, we are incredibly thankful that Angela was our selling agent.

Angela was with us every step of the way from the listing to the sale of our property. She was ALWAYS accessible and her knowledge of market conditions, the potential buyer pool, and comps in the area was absolutely remarkable and allowed us to make decisions regarding the listing in a timely  fashion. The layout of the house as well as the current market situation presented a challenging set of circumstances for the sale of our home and property, and Angela was not only a consummate professional, but a caring partner who felt like family throughout what was a very emotional time for us. If i could give her 10 stars on all of the above, I absolutely would.

I buy and flip houses for a living and rely heavily on the expertise and feedback of agents I deal with. I can unequivocally say that Angela is the most knowledgeable, honest, competent, hardworking agent I have ever dealt with. If you are reading this review and looking for an agent to help you  find or sell a home, you would be very fortunate to have Angela by your side.

Angela Kessel is a true professional. In a very difficult market, Angela sold my unique home in less than 6 months. She knows how to find the perfect buyer for your home and guides you through the entire process. I would highly recommend Angela at any price-point, she will get the job done! There's  a reason why she is the number one agent in Westchester county.

Angela is on fire as a realtor! She guided my husband and I throughout the whole process of selling our home, and made it totally stress free! She gave me great advice and feedback that was key in selling our home! We are so lucky to have worked with her, and she is a true expert at what she does.

There are realtors and there are wonderful human beings who happen to be realtors. Angela went above and beyond to make our real estate purchase a reality. Her advice and guidance was essential to the process, as was her insight to the market. Angela made it possible to overcome every hurdle,  and truly stood behind our family and our housing needs Whether you are buying or selling a home in Westchester I can’t imagine having anyone other than Angela on your side.

Angela is the complete package when it comes to real estate. She's super responsive and highly knowledgeable. Couple that with her no-nonsense approach and highest level of professionalism, she is like a real estate unicorn. We have done a few transactions with her, both buying and selling, and all  were smooth. I wish there were Angela Kessel’s in all the places where we buy/sell properties.

You want Angela Kessel as your realtor. She knows the market and gets results. We listed our home with Angela, and she sold it in less than a week! She advised us on updating our house in order to maximize our return, and that's exactly what happened. Thanks to Angela everything was streamlined and straightforward. We are grateful to Angela for her professionalism and guidance throughout this process.

Angela Kessel is remarkable. Everything she said would happen - happened. She helped us sell a house and buy a new one - all in the space of a few months. She helped us do great staging, got us amazing photos, priced the place perfectly and it sold in a matter of weeks and then found us our dream home a few weeks later - exactly what we were looking for. We put our lives in her hands - great decision. She expertly and sensitively orchestrated a major life change for us - we are so grateful. Angela Kessel is a dream come true - exactly what we needed.

Angela is just incredible. I've been working with Angela for years, and she has always been on top of everything. In the last few years, I have bought and sold several homes. Angela is a master negotiator, and she has a plethora of resources. Always available and patience are the qualities that I appreciate the most about Angela. I love working with her and can't imagine accomplishing what I've been able to without her.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Angela. She goes above and beyond her job as a broker. From our first interaction, she has been super present, has really listened to and gotten to know us, and was an essential support to our property search. She is professional, knowledgeable, and has a far-reaching network of other great people you will inevitably need along the way. As a bonus, she is fun to hang out with, and speaks to you very honestly. She tells it to you as it is, which we find to be rare in the real estate world. We highly recommend working with Angela. She found us our perfect home and we are so happy and grateful to know her.

Angela recently helped us sell our house in North Salem, currently a very challenging market for large homes. She was always honest with us about the state of the market and gave us great information on ways to improve the marketability of our house. She was incredibly proactive, scheduling multiple realtor open houses and making sure our house was at the top of the list for prospective buyers. She was also on top of all prospective buyer feedback and helped us understand how our house compared to other similar houses on the market. While the wait was longer than we had hoped, we succeeded in selling the house at a very reasonable price. We have no doubt that Angela is the reason we sold the house at the price we did. Angela is also an incredibly warm and friendly person to work with. We grew very fond of her over the period we worked with her. She was always ready to speak with us about our concerns and help us get to a better point when things were challenging. We recommend working with Angela to any prospective client.

Angela is a rock star. Selling your home is a stressful process and Angela made it so much easier and better. She had great answers to all of our questions, and usually answered questions before we even had to ask them. She is extremely professional and organized and a great communicator. I cannot recommend Angela highly enough.

WOW!!! As a busy professional couple, we dreaded the process of selling our house. Then we met Angela, who helped us with every aspect of the process resulting in the very successful and rapid sale of our home! She also helped us find a new home within a week of our sale! Angela is very resourceful, and her level of enthusiasm and involvement were very comforting. Angela was always responsive to our needs as both the seller and buyer of a new home. Angela is the best! She is a true professional, a joy with whom to work, and it is very clear why she is #1!

Angela is simply an excellent realtor. From the moment we first spoke to her, we were very impressed with her intelligence and her knowledge of the market as well as her can-do attitude. Angela is a consummate professional -- she worked tirelessly to show our house and ensure that it had the necessary visibility and foot traffic to facilitate a sale and she was always available and responsive when we needed her (whether to simply talk through things or deal with an issue). She also showed this impressive ability to remain consistently nice while always advocating strongly and thoughtfully for our interests -- a truly rare and remarkable quality. She earned our complete trust during the process and we cannot recommend her more highly. She is absolutely the one and only realtor to use in the area.

Angela is an excellent person and phenomenal real estate agent.  She worked diligently to help us with our home's remodel prior to putting it on the market.  She had wonderful ideas right down to assistance choosing paint colors.  She has a deep understanding of our local market and was able to  price our house accordingly; and adjust when we needed to.  We got an all cash offer and are very, very happy we decided to work with Angela.

Angela is a true professional. Angela guided me through the process from start to finish and was excellent in all respects. Extremely helpful in providing market knowledge, comparables, providing data/guidance for effective sale pricing, getting the home ready for showings, marketing the home and  negotiations. Angela gets to know her Customers and their needs and concerns and does not pressure the client - Angela wants you to sell your home when you are ready. I highly recommend Angela Kessel as your Real Estate Broker.

Angela made the entire process easy and stress-free from beginning to end.  She was knowledgeable and experienced, and was always accessible and responsive.  We let her guide us, taking her advice on most things, and we were able to sell within the time frame and price range we hoped for.  I highly  recommend her.

After listing my home numerous times over the years, Angela sold it in SIX days!!!!   She is the #1 selling agent in Westchester County for a reason.  Her knowledge and expertise of the real estate market in this area is unprecedented.  She is honest, forthright and professional and fiercely  protects and guides her client through an arduous and unpredictable process.  She is competent and kind, consoling but firm and gets the job done.  I wish all of my business relationships were as rewarding.   Why would you list with anyone else?

zuser20160412013524266 - May 12, 2016

Bedford Hills, NY

Angela initiated our listing for sale with fresh eyes and delivered everything she promised and then some. Prior to this we had become daunted by an abundance of house inventory and a sluggish real estate market in our price range. Our house was just sitting yet we did not have accurate data on why. Angela began by re-photographing our home and property to maximize every aspect of the very best features. She used professional architectural photographers rather just an instant digital camera she had in her pocket (as some realtors had done.) Her bright and confident personality coupled with an incredible wealth of knowledge (and connections) on how to reach a broad base of clients is what sealed the deal. She presented us with a cash offer in no time. Nothing daunts her and having a highly respected agent representing us was a great move. 

nanmcloug - February 12, 2016

Bedford Corners, NY

Angela is a consummate professional. Was very helpful in helping me find the perfect home and more importantly sell my existing one. We didn't waste time looking at houses that didn't fit my needs. One particularly creative idea she had was when I was still only considering selling my house in the  late fall, she got her photographer to take pictures with the changing leaves so that when I was finally ready to list the house in the middle of winter, the house looked it's best in advertising. She's spectacular.

tramducks - February 10, 2016

Pound Ridge, NY

Angela did a stellar job for us from start to finish. We are a city couple that was looking for a house in the Bedford area. Angela narrowed down the many listings in the area based on our wish list and didn't waste our time.  She seemed to intuit exactly what we would like, and we ended up buying  one of the first properties she showed us. She has extensive connections in the area - inspectors, attorneys, contractors - and is a tough but polite negotiator. She responded to whatever questions we had immediately and was always working on our behalf throughout the search and contract process. I am so grateful that we found her and our dream house.

marcyswingle3 - January 24, 2016

Bedford Corners, NY

My wife and I had been looking for months through various parts of Westchester with another relator without much success.  Finally, one Saturday my wife and I decided we needed to change realtors.  We had known of Angela through a family friend and decided to give her a call to see if she could get  more traction.  We called her at 9am the following Monday and by 4:30pm that day she brought us to the house we ultimately wound up buying.  In a market with not much inventory, Angela literally found us our home within hours.  This home had been on the market for sometime and the other realtor missed it.  This is a testament to how well Angela knows Bedford.  Not only extremely knowledgeable, but responsive and a total advocate for her clients.   She could not have been a better agent.  The total professional.  We hope to work with her again someday.

Angel did a very solid job in selling our house. She knows the local Bedford/Pound Ridge market very well and was helpful throughout the process (a process which she has a high level of expertise). She was responsive and has sound negotiating skills. I was a little skeptical from her sales pitch, but she delivered, and I appreciate that.

Angela has bought and sold multiple houses for me, she is the ultimate perfessional!  She is always available, incredibly masterful in negotiation, and truly knows her market.  In my mind there is nobody else that I would use to buy or sell a house in Westchester!

swimgal0603 - November 15, 2013

Goldens Bridge, NY

I contacted Angela Kessel after the recommendation I received from two of my neighbors. In both cases, she sold their homes quickly and got top dollar for them. It was the same for us. We had a buyer within one week after our home went on the market and then a second buyer came along two weeks  later and offered us our full asking price! In the meantime, the realtors were showing our home nearly every day and sometimes two or three showings in one day!

Angela made the entire process--- EASY.

I cannot recommend her highly enough and would encourage anyone considering selling their home to contact her. She gets the job done!

Discretion, combined with an in depth knowledge of the market makes Angela an outstanding real estate professional.  Her easy going manner and availability makes the somewhat stressful process exciting and enjoyable and she always takes her clients best interests to heart, regardless of the outcome.  She is a leader in her profession and in her community.

Angela is a true professional.  She is honest and very trustworthy, who always has her clients' best interests at the forefront.  And best of all is she will get the deal done!  If I were going to sell my house I would list it with Angela no questions asked and if I needed a buyers' agent she would be my choice!

Angela Kessel knows the market!  Selling and buying a home in this crazy real estate market is a daunting proposition.  Angela helped us sell our house and then buy our new home from beginning to end.  With her incredible industry knowledge and friendly ways, she easily guided us through the entire  process.  She is knowledgeable, thorough, professional, and friendly.  She is an absolute pleasure to work with!

Angela was knowledgeable, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with.  She exuded warmth and professionalism and was, without question, a fabulous resource for our family. Not only did she expertly assist us with the sale of our home in NY but also assisted us in our relocation out of state. As demanding clients, her follow-up and follow through were expected.  Angela went above and beyond what was expected and made every aspect of the transaction from listing to closing a pleasure for both seller and purchaser.  She is fabulous!

Angela Kessel is by far the ultimate go to person in real estate.  I highly recommend her.  She always made herself available to us.  Returns every phone call promptly.  Listens and understands the specific needs of her clients.  I will continue to use her for all my real estate needs and have  recommended her to all my friends.
