We were looking for our first home, and were pretty clueless about the whole process, aside from knowing we needed a mortgage pre-approval. Bev was great from the start, immediately sending houses over to us in the towns we were looking at; and she was very honest about which towns she thought would be the best for potential re-sale down the line. When we went to look at houses, Bev was pointing out the good and the bad; what we could work with and what wasn't worth considering. We knew we couldn't afford the perfect place in our first home and would most likely need to do some work to get a house to be exactly how we wanted; and Bev gave great advice on the different changes we could make at the various houses we looked at. We really appreciated her honesty with each house! Before we put our offer in on the house, Ed came to take a look and make sure there were no obvious issues that should concern us as far as the structure, etc. Once we made the offer, Bev walked us through the whole offer letter, what every section meant, what happened after the offer was accepted, etc. Ed was a great negotiator! We were ready to settle at the top of what we were willing to pay for the house, but Ed went back one more time and the sellers ended up accepting an offer where we both met evenly in the middle. Bev & Ed recommended a great attorney who was 100% looking out for us during a slightly complicated attorney review. They were with us every step of the way for the inspection, oil tank removal, even getting a list of all permits from the town. They went above and beyond! When we thought the closing would get delayed while we waited for an oil tank to get removed, they contacted additional contractors to see if someone could come sooner. Bev even went by the day they took the tank out to make sure there were no immediate issues! Now that we've been in the house about a month, Bev's check up on us to see how its going and to see pictures of the updates we made. If someday was decide to sell this house, we would definitely use Bev & Ed again. In the meantime, we would absolutely recommend them to anyone I know looking for a home in the area!
Ed and Bev we're not just our realtors, but our advisors, coaches and became our friends. If you want realtors who know the market, the neighborhood and how to help you sell your home, we strongly recommend you select Ed & Bev Kalinka as your realtors. Lou & Patty Normand
They helped us find a beautiful house that was both within budget and had qualities what we dreamed of in a home. Sure, it wasn't easy to find what we wanted since we are picky people, but Kalinka was always there to help us out. Currently, I am trying to sell my other home and there is no doubt in my mind that I will use them again. They are really nice, great people and their experience really shows. I definitely recommend!
Edwin and Beverly have the skills needed to market this particular property. They have many contacts among builders, made numerous calls cnavasing builders and were able to advise me as to price. Edwin's knowledge of the building community was very helpful when we encountered problems in the inspection. His skills were critical in keeping the buyers on board and in solving the problems in a timely fashion.
They were very helpful, knowledgeable, and patient throughout the whole process. My fiancee and I had many questions and they were always there to answer them, no matter the time of day. They were both extremely knowledgable about every town we wanted to look in and were able to provide with many details to make sure we found the perfect fit. They took the time to listen to exactly what both of us wanted, and helped us find it! I definitely recommend them!
From the first day we started working together I felt very comfortable with the knowledge, experience and understanding they both had of the local real estate market. Buying a home is a very big step in many familys lives, both financially and personally. Beverly and Ed never took this process lightly during the several months we worked together. To put it simply, they always had the best interest of our family in mind. I would highly recommend Beverly and Ed Kalinka to any family that is in the market to buy or sell a home. You will be in very good hands.
Would highly recommend their expertise, they are not your run of the mill realtors.
Bev and Ed immediately relieved all the worry. They explained the process in detail and were with us every step of the way. They were very knowledgeable and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. They answered any and all questions or concerns we had and even did additional research to ensure their findings were accurate and best fitting to our needs. We were Able to contact them at all times and they always kept us up to date with the process and what the next step would be. They have gone above and beyond our expectations! Who else would pull up a ground cover in their suit to make sure there were no issues underneath the lid!! I have heard that home buying could be difficult but with Bev and Ed in hand it was a dream come true! If we ever buy/sell again I will 1000% be working with them again.
Bev made this huge step a lot easier than it could have been. Her sense of calm made me feel at ease throughout the process. Her expertise and guidance helped me understand and feel comfortable every step of the way. She found the right place for my family and I. Bev’s husband was great assistance as well. They are a fantastic duo and I recommend them 100 %!!
We lived about an hour away from where we purchased the home, and Bev and Ed always helped us with picking up and dropping off relevant documents, being at the house whenever there was anything happening and always "had our backs."
Bev found us our forever home and I am so grateful for that. She was kind and patient. We love her! Bev was recommended by a friend and I have since found out she has helped 2 couples I know buy and sell homes. Bev made the process very easy and held my hand through it all.
