Jeff McKinney is a licensed Real Estate Agent, who works with buyers, sellers, renters and property owners. He takes an extremely proactive, and "hands-on" approach with all his clients, and is there for them through every step of the buying, selling, or renting process. In order to provide his clients with a high level of attention, he prefers to work with a small number of clients at a given time.
Jeff brings his background in T.V. and Online production, and content development to the Real Estate profession, which gives him a unique perspective on staging, photographing, and marketing his client's homes. Jeff also combines social media savvy with proven Real Estate practices to help his clients sell their homes, and has had proven success with helping homeowners sell previously "un-sellable" homes. When working with buyers, he makes it a personal mission to help clients find the home of their dreams.
Jeff was born in Philadelphia, PA, and made his way to NYC after graduating college. After a decade of weekend and holiday visits to Columbia County, Jeff left NYC in 2007, and became a permanent resident of this beautiful and unique region. At that time, he identified a lack of online resources covering the county, and some of it’s smaller towns, so he created one, ColumbiaCountyCurrent.com. The site provides visitors with regularly updated content that covers local news, arts and entertainment, calendar listings and a Real Estate section that provides Jeff’s clients with a unique means of showcasing their homes through feature-style home listings.
In his spare time, Jeff enjoys spending time with his family, a good happy hour drink with friends, listening to a great music playlist, and continuing to explore Columbia County, to find new and exciting locations.
"I am very happy to be able to recommend Jeff. I've tried to sell my house twice before with very poor results (listed for more than 1-1/2 years over a 5 year period). With Jeff's superb guidance, I had the first offer WITHIN A WEEK; 2nd offer 2 days later and a brief bidding war! The contrast with past efforts to sell couldn't have been greater. To begin with, Jeff is one of the most personable people I know. He is polite and kind, entirely non-judgmental. It was a pleasure to work with him. He was very responsive to my needs-throughout this very quick process. While being very kind and thoughtful about his comments about the house, he certainly had clear expectations for the presentation of the house. He was spot on. A critical component was Jeff's knowledge about the timing of listing the house-he encouraged me to list in late winter/early spring. The timing was perfect! Any question that Jeff couldn't answer immediately (very few), was quickly researched. His communication was consistent and clear. I was ambivalent at best about trying to sell again-the process had been slow, tedious and unsuccessful. With Jeff's help, the process went amazingly smoothly, quickly and successfully; I can't recommend him highly enough!" -06/10/2017 – sybeaupre from Zillow.com https://www.zillow.com/profile/jeffmmckinney/?
"Jeff was the best possible agent I could have hoped for. As a first-time home buyer, I was ignorant about pretty much everything, but he made the whole process easy. And fun! He's generous, patient, extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful; he listens and remembers and follows up on all my little concerns. I can't recommend him highly enough, and I plan to keep bugging him with questions for years to come." -06/08/2017 - zuser20161111125517741 from Zillow.com https://www.zillow.com/profile/jeffmmckinney/??

"Jeff, You did a fantastic job! We've had the house on the market for 10 years, and you were, by far, the most proactive and dedicated agent that we encountered. We appreciate your diligence and professionalism. Best, Andy" - 9/19/17 - andrew bauer0 from Zillow.com https://www.zillow.com/profile/jeffmmckinney/??
