My husband and I previously worked with Kerry Downs to find a rental home in McKinney. Two years later, we were
looking to purchase our first Texas home. Kerry was spot on with approaching us at the same time we began talking
about our first home purchase. He recognized we had other realtors to work with so he met with us to share his
methods when working with clients. We appreciated his approach in finding us the right home by being upfront and
direct through this process. Most importantly, he listened carefully to our needs as we were looking in a very small area
to keep our kids in the same school that they've come to love. We viewed perhaps just a dozen homes, doing his due
diligence in finding homes that were the right size, cost and location. Throughout the process, Kerry gave us his utmost
attention and always kept in communication. We found the right home that my family and I can grow into. Even with all
the mortgage regulations, Kerry made buying a home simple and quite actually, fun. My kids, husband and I enjoy our
new home and wholeheartedly recommend Kerry Downs for his professional, spot-on service. Thank you,
