Robin is extraordinarily knowledgeable about the Greenwich market, as well as architecture and design. She quickly honed in on all of our priorities (as well as our dislikes) and was able to show us a broad range of interesting options in a short period of time. Robin is a very skilled negotiator and ultimately helped us to secure our house at a price we believe to be fair and reasonable. She is extremely responsive and dedicated to her clients, and a true pleasure to work with. We could not recommend her more highly.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience dealing with Robin Kencel. She is the quintessential professional in all areas. Local knowledge, negotiation, dealing with high net worth buyers and above all being understated and polished in her presentation! You would go a long way before you found anyone better to deal with both sellers and buyers!

Robin is one of the most efficient agents I have ever worked with. She understands the Greenwich market very well and helped us as first time buyers to get a very good sense of the market. She also is a good negotiator and knows how to bridge the gap between buyer's and seller's expectations

Robin did a very thorough and professional job representing us. She was able to generate significant exposure for our property and was very helpful in formulating a marketing strategy to address the problem of very depressed market conditions.

We had a great experience with Robin Kennel. She helped us to sell the house and then purchase the new one. We just closed on both properties and were glad that we had an opportunity to work with Robin. She is very responsive, have excellent negotiation skills and great knowledge and overall real estate experience. We would highly recommend for you to consider Robin.

Following a disappointing attempt to sell our home in 2015, we took it off the market. We decided to change realtors and selected Robin based on her reputation and following a lengthy meeting where she presented strong analytics on where we should price and how she would market our home. We put house back on market in early 2016 and just closed. Robin and her team clearly brought a creative approach and sense of urgency that was needed in a tough market. She is very cool under pressure but has a reassuring interpersonal style that tends get things done. While she pulls no punches on advising the seller on what it will take to get the desired result, she is clearly in the seller's court. We have already recommended Robin to a number of our friends.

The best of the best. I would only work with Robin. She not only found us the perfect home for our family, but she also helped with introducing us to people we needed to know, anything we wanted to find out that would effect what house we purchased and is just incredibly perfect. On a scale of 1-10 Robin is a 1000.. We enjoyed the entire process with her and she really represented our interests so well and she is an amazing negotiator and doesn't leave you at the end of a purchase. She has helped me from everything to groceries, furniture, builders for additions, pool recommendations.. the list goes on and on.. we love her to pieces and can't wait to work with her again when we are looking for our next home.

extremely responsive and hard working. handled all of the small details around my listing, gathering information from town hall, MLS, and interacted frequently with my attorney.

This is the third time we've work with Robin and her team. The first time selling our home, which was quite an undertaking after owning it for over 20 years and the purchase of another home and lastly an investment property. She and her team definitely go above and beyond. I've spoken to her at 11pm and again the next morning at 7am, I am not sure she sleeps! I truly can't say enough great things about her...5 stars just really isn’t enough.

Robin was part of a team that listed and sold our home. She is knowledgeable and professional. She is honest and upbeat. She provides excellent customer service. She gave us good advice about how to make our home attractive to potential buyers. She is quick to respond to any/all questions and concerns. It was a pleasure to work with her. She was also very helpful in helping us find a new home under tight time pressure. I would recommend her enthusiastically to any buyer or seller in the Greenwich market.
beehawks4 — Mar 06, 2016
We signed Robin to help rent our home. Before listing the house, she advised we make two significant changes to the interior of the home. These alterations resulted in an immediate offer. She was highly professional in handling the negotiations representing our interests in every regard. The contract process required her detailed attention and quick response, resulting in a signed contract within 4 days. You will feel that you are her only client and that your interests are her number one priority. We highly recommend Robin in representing any buyer, seller, landlord, tenant.

Robin is extremely good at her job and a pleasure to work with. My husband and I were new to the area and she has been incredibly helpful with a wealth of resources and recommendations that I still regularly tap into.

i am a Managing Director on the highly competitive Financial Services industry and have bought and sold 4 homes in Greenwich,CT. over the past 20 years and in that process, I have never had the pleasure of working with someone as skilled and professional as Robin Kensel. She is truly at the top of her field in so many of the required and necesary attributes needed to successfully market and sell a home in this town. She is armed with facts and figures to properly and accurately price the home-and that was only the beginning. She is masterful in marketing the property and totally stays on the market pulse, literally 24/7. She is relentless with suggestions and viewpoints--all with the owners benefits as her top priority. I cannot use enough superlatives on Robin's professionalism, integrity, honesty and friendly demeanor. Robin was a delight to deal with and the bottom line is she represented me and my interests to the nth degree.

I have purchased, sold and rented 3 houses over the past 10 years so consider myself to be very familiar with the quality of service in the brokerage industry. With this experience, I can truly say that Robin is unquestionably in a class of her own, differentiating herself from the rest of her colleagues. She is a consummate professional, with recommendations based on hard data that is contextualized by a qualitative instinct borne of decades long familiarity with the market dynamics of Greenwich real estate. Most importantly, she genuinely cares about her clients and the outcome of their decisions. She will fight for her clients' rights, as I personally witnessed in an unusual bidding situation. She takes care of every detail to expedite a transaction. She has redefined for me the notion of client service as well as the standards of the realtor profession.

I highly recommend Robin Kencel’s Real Estate Services. I was referred to Robin several years ago when my husband and I were looking for our first home. Surprisingly the referral was not from a fellow home buyer, but rather a friend of someone Robin had done business with. Her reputation is not only that of an outstanding realtor, but also an honorable person within the community. My initial impressions of Robin were only strengthened when she began to work with us. Within just a day of our first meeting Robin was already hard at work sending us listings, helpful area information, etc…Throughout the process Robin always insisted that we keep searching until we found the home that was perfect for us. We really appreciated the fact that we were never rushed. No matter how many homes we saw her character never faltered. She always met us with a perfect balance of warmth, trustworthiness and professionalism. Fast forward two years later. We needed to relocate quickly. Of course we called Robin right away. She promptly analyzed the market and came to us with an aggressive sales plan. As usual Robin was spot on. The house sold instantly and was a pleasant experience for all involved.
