"Very impressed with Ryan throughout the whole process of listing my home to final closing.  In particular, he came up with the right price for the house and it sold at full list price. Another firm I contacted initially wanted to list it for almost $100,000 less! He is very knowledgeable about the current market and the real estate process in general. He was very responsive to calls and emails, worked hard to market my home and with his low-key friendly style he was a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend Ryan." --Sharon, Buffalo

"Athina was always there for us for every step of the process, through to the end. We went through multiple offer situations that were pretty tough and she gave us great strategies to get through that. We are very grateful & very happy that we had her as our Realtor." -- Eric & Chelsea, Town of Tonawanda

"Ryan is the best, highly recommend! As first time homebuyers, we had many questions & concerns. Ryan was there to answer & address all of them throughout the ENTIRE process (even questions after closing). He even worked with us early on & attended viewings when he knew we weren't ready to buy yet. He recommended many professionals to us along the way as needed (such as our home inspector, who was fantastic). Ryan is a top notch professional who genuinely cared about us and walked us through every little thing. We are now in our first home & couldn't have done it without all his help!" -- Amber & Kevin, Amherst

This was the first time Tom and his family bought and sold at the same time. Despite his concerns he says here it went far smoother than expected due to the assistance we were fortunate to provide in moving within the Town of Amherst.

Hearing from clients, even 8 years later, is so rewarding! Mary called this year to ask us to sell her parents house in Amherst and we are please to report it not only went smoothly, but they did very well and are now comfortable settled into their assisted living accommodations near Mary and her family.
Excited for Roy & Charmaine's new home with one-level living in Orchard Park. Sometimes the process takes us beyond our original search area, but it always leads us to the right home in the end.

"Ryan was the most honest, professional, thorough and responsive agent we have every interacted with. He is held in high regard by other agents, attorneys, and clients. Ryan's work ethic and integrity is a rare find, and we would highly recommend him to anyone!" --Bill & Jill, Lancaster

"My experience with Ryan was great. He is very knowledgeable and he was very supportive during our house search here. Since we weren't from this area originally and we moved from a big city, he was very helpful to us in searching and narrowing down the area that could fit into our lifestyle." -- Daniel, Williamsville

Helping our clients find the right home for them is something we really take pride in and enjoy day after day. As a result, it can be a fun process and we meet some wonderful people. Michael and Milena were kind enough to talk a bit about their experience buying their new Evans home with us here.
The Woupio Family had a short timeframe to find a home and manage the difficulty of buying a home while still living in Massachusetts. Thrilled to help them find their dream home in Clarence!

Big changes sometimes all occur at the same time. When Randy and Tina found their forever home and needed to move in just after Cameron's birth, we found a way to make it happen! Congrats to the Jonmaire Family on their new Williamsville home!

Selling & buying together can be complicated but careful preparation can make the process and lot easier. Bill and Cait knew what they wanted and once we had their home sold, we were quickly able to find them the next home in the Williamsville schools while beating another offer.

"If you're on the verge of buying or selling your home, I can't say enough about Ryan ConnollyBill and I were painstakingly detailed in both listing ours and searching for a new home, and he always gave us his full attention (and patience!) during every part of the process. He's the one who found us our amazing new home, despite all my endless searches on trulia and zillow. He even managed to convince the sellers to abandon a non-contingent offer in favor of ours, and then kept us calm as we waited (briefly) to sell our house. AND he sold our home quickly against at least 30 comparable houses within 2 miles of us. I could go on and on. It was the biggest and best decision of our life, and Ryan was the absolute best for us." -- Bill & Cait, Amherst

"There are few words to describe our satisfaction with Ryan. We anticipated the process of finding a home while relocating to the area to be painful, but Ryan ensured that it was anything but. His professionalism and attention to detail is absolutely unmatched, he responds to all texts, emails, calls instantly, no matter what time or day. We were referred to Ryan by a friend, and it's the best referral we've ever received. We could not be happier and can't wait to refer friends and family to him." -- Paul & Patricia, Clarence

 

Patrick and Heather placed an offer on one of my listings and unfortunately were not chosen. However, their agent and cousin was traveling in from Rochester which was not letting them move as quickly as they needed to. We were happy to help them find their great new Tonawanda home.
Justin & Jen had clear intentions for their home search and that direction helped us find them their ideal Snyder home with space and a beautiful, private backyard.
Cameron approached us with an interest in buying in N Buffalo which can be tricky. However, we found them the best home for them and also sold Samantha's condo in Orchard Park so their closings could line up together.

Mary found us at an exciting time in her life. Newly engaged, she just bought her first home in the Deveaux area of Niagara Falls with lots of room for her fiancé, Christopher.

Sometimes the process requires a bit of time and in this case, finding the right home for this family was exactly that scenario. Now they have found their long-term home in the Town of Tonawanda.

JD was transferred up to Buffalo from N Carolina with the Marines and had a short time to find the right home for his young family. Fortunately, they found a beautiful home in the Village of Hamburg.

Sometimes the process to buy a home can be extremely difficult. Unfortunately, that was the case here, but with the right support on your side, it is possible and the end result is a happy family in a beautiful E Aurora home.

Working with Adam & Laura was a dream experience. Selling their updated Tonawanda home was easy given their attention to detail. The move literally down the street to home #2 didn't hurt either!

"My husband and I met Ryan through a mutual friend. We sold our house and bought a new one with Ryan and couldn't have been happier! I had many questions and concerns throughout the whole process. Whenever I called, emailed, or texted, he had a prompt response, always able to put my mind at ease.  He's very personable and easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable. His marketing strategies are amazing and because of him, we were able to sell our house quickly getting way more than we ever dreamed possible for our home! Even though there were some bumps along the way, Ryan was always there, ensuring the sale went as smooth as possible. We also bought a house with Ryan. Again, with his expertise we were able to get our dream home at the price we wanted. I highly recommend Ryan! I have passed his name on to several friends and will continue to do so!" --Brian & Margaret, Amherst

"Ryan was never pushy and always pleasant to talk to. Anytime we made a request in the negotiation process he never made us feel like were asking too much. He handled everything during negotiations will tact and skill. We trust Ryan to be professional and get us the best deal. He was knowledgable about home construction/appliances/etc. which helped us in decision making. We are very happy with our new home and recommend Ryan to anyone buying a new home." -- John & Lauryn, Amherst

Ryan and Becky knew what they wanted. Together we put a plan of action in place and found them the perfect home in Cheektowaga!

Gregory and Meghan are quickly moving from 2 to 4! As first time homeowners they will happily move into their new Cheektowaga home with their twin boys!

"Ryan Connolly helped us buy our first house! We couldn't be more appreciative and thankful for the hard work and countless hours that Ryan and his team put in to help us find the perfect place. It wasn't an easy process and there were bumps in the road, but Ryan was there every step of the way and available at just about any time whenever we needed help or just had silly questions. If you're looking for a home and want to deal with the best, Ryan and his RE/MAX team will be there to help!" -- Matt & Steph, Tonawanda

The Aranez Family needed the perfect home for their young family while they complete their residency here in Buffalo. Fortunately, we found the perfect place for them!

Kathy was nervous to make this video, but I greatly appreciate her saying a few words considering what a joy she was to work with -- and happened to say I "made their dreams come true!"

Very excited for Kevin's first home which is truly the best/most updated I've ever seen a 1st time homebuyer purchase!

An essential part of the process, it's always fun helping buyers find the right location and aspects of a home to meet their needs. Terry & Lindsey talk a bit about that process here.

As an interior decorator, we're very excited to see how Lori takes an already great home in Orchard Park and makes this new home her own.

After a short time, Alex & Jess were able to find their updated historic home as they make their home back in Buffalo.

Mike and Sarah moved into this great historic home recently and said a few kind words here while I sold their previous home. 

Some of the best people to work with, I'm happy to welcome Dave & Michelle to their new home that they are already beautifully updating.

"Ideal realtor. All business and no nonsense, a breath of fresh air compared to the typical realtor out there. I interviewed several agents prior to Ryan and all wanted to price my home for 40k -- yes $40,000 less than what it sold for." --Mat, Williamsville

Mat & Joelle were sad to leave WNY, but happy when I told them they could sell far higher than they ever believed.

Never before has a client picked up so much during the homebuying process that they started doing my job when walking through a home. It won't be the same not seeing them every week.

Looking in the Elmwood Village can be a challenge. We made it happen with Mike & Melissa landing them one of my favorite homes of all time.

Lee & Roseanne were referred by another client and were pleased to find out it was just as easy for them

"Ryan is excellent. My wife and I chose him after seeing great reviews on Zillow, and were not disappointed. Ryan knows everything there is to know about the Buffalo area and its suburbs, and has extensive knowledge of the entire home buying process. Most importantly, his patience and responsiveness helped us find and close on the home we really wanted when we had just about given up. I was particularly impressed with a few key things that really set Ryan apart. First, he is extremely responsive to all communication methods -- phone, text, and email. We knew he had many other clients, but somehow he always made us feel like we were the only ones. Second, he is extremely patient and never pushy. We looked at a lot of homes before we finally found the one we wanted, and he never gave us less than his best or made us feel like we were taking too long. Third, he has assembled an army of references to good people who are needed along the way -- lawyers, bankers, home inspectors, contractors, etc. Everyone he referred us to was top notch." --Mike & Sarah, Amherst

Jim and Cheryl Hereth were kind enough to talk a bit about their experience selling their their historic Kenmore home before purchasing this beautiful Clarence Center colonial.

Robert graciously spoke to me about his recent experience selling his current home. I had previously helped his wife sell her home quickly as well.

"Highly recommend Ryan for all of your real estate needs. We found him to be thoroughly fair, honest, informed, friendly, professional and highly responsive. We are grateful for meeting and working with Ryan. Thank you Ryan for helping us buy our first home!" --Stephanie, Buffalo

"There is a reason why Ryan Connolly has a highly successful business. He is a true professional with his knowledge of the real estate market and his personal touches. Working with Ryan while selling our home was fun. He was very personable, respectful and accommodating to our needs during the process, as well as providing great advice on how we, as sellers, could make improvements to help with the sell. Ryan Connolly is #1 in Buffalo, NY. Thanks Ryan for all you do!" -- Susannah, Buffalo

"From start to finish, a true professional Real Estate agent! Ryan kept us updated through the entire process and exceeded our expectations on our sale in Tonawanda/Buffalo area home sale. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering selling or buying."  --Mark, Tonawanda

Happy to welcome Zac & Alexis to Buffalo. It's going to be a big change from Texas!

Ben and Jessica talk about their experience buying their N Buffalo home

Bob and Meaghan talk about their home buying experience in the Parkside area of Buffalo

Martha is excited to move into her new Village of Williamsville home

"Ryan Connolly is an excellent real estate professional and I would highly recommend him if you are in the market to buy or sell a home. We worked with Ryan to sell our house and purchase a new one. He was very responsive and knowledgeable on the whole process." - Mike & Erin, West Seneca

"Ryan's patience, expertise and attention to detail was greatly appreciated in the sale of my home. He is truly a asset to RE/MAX and highly recommend by us to others needing to sell their home in WNY."  -- Michael and Maria, Williamsville

"We had been working with another agent and lost bids on 2 homes in the last year. We felt we weren't being guided as we best could be by this agent. A friend recommended Ryan and he was so thorough and sat down with us to hear exactly what we were looking for. He explained every step of the way what our best move would be. We won on a multiple bid situation and know that it was due to Ryan's knowledge and expertise." -- Dylan, Getzville

Pam moves into her first home

Although delayed by Winter Storm Knife, Bill & Emily finally closed on their dug out S Buffalo home.

"I can't say enough good things about Ryan! He just helped my boyfriend and I find the perfect house to raise our daughter in. It met everything on our checklist and so much more! He is so knowledgeable and was also available to answer any questions we had. People say not to use attorneys/inspectors that their Realtor recommends, well, everyone Ryan recommended was beyond helpful and so pleasant to deal with and made the process of buying our first home so exciting and enjoyable! If we ever decide to leave our dream home, we will definitely be giving Ryan a call!" -- Cortney, Buffalo

"I worked with Ryan this past Spring in the purchase of my first home. Ryan was excellent, he was able to anticipate questions I might have due to being a first homebuyer and there was never a moment in the process where I felt alone or uninformed. I would highly recommend Ryan as he also sold my grandmother's condo and was able to market the space in a few innovative ways that helped secure a sale in a quick timeline. Ryan is innovative, fresh and knowledgeable in the field and he is certainly well versed in both the homebuying and selling process." -- Jessica, Amherst

The Ely Family moved to Buffalo from Kentucky & have fallen in love with our city

Tom & Jess talk about their positive experience with Connolly Home Sales

"Ryan is fantastic - can't recommend him highly enough! Incredibly knowledgeable, informative, responsive, patient, friendly, and a million other adjectives! My wife and I were very particular (difficult) buyers, with a set of wishes/preferences that didn't necessarily match our budget. Ryan was unbelievably patient with us throughout the process, and was nothing but understanding as we changed our minds again and again regarding what we wanted, where we wanted to be, etc. He was never the least bit pushy, or impatient, or frustrated [at least he didn't show it :-)], with us, even though he probably had every right to be. It was completely clear throughout the entire process that all Ryan wanted was for us to find the right home. make a smart purchase, and be happy. Again, can't recommend him highly enough!" -- Robert & Ania, Orchard Park 

The Lewis Family ready to close on their first home with lots of land in Niagara County

Catie & Steph sharing a few words before the closing on their beautiful new home.

"Based on our experience with Ryan both selling our former residence and buying our new home, I would highly recommend him to family and friends (in fact, we already have). His sincere and honest professional approach coupled with proven expertise are a formula for success. It was a true pleasure working with him every step of the selling/buying process at the end of which we secured our ideal home." --- Melissa, E Amherst

David talks about his experience buying his first home

"Ryan is by far the best realtor in WNY!!! No matter day or night Ryan was always available either via text, email or phone. He showed us numerous homes and helped us sell our home as well (which was sold in 3 weeks!!!) He promised we would find our dream home within 3 months and he kept that promise when we found our dream home in only 1!! Ryan's knowledge of the real estate business really pays off. We ran into a couple of snags when purchasing our new home but he was on top of it everyday and kept in contact with us and our attorney. He did everything he could to fix these snags and he did! We love our new house so much and we are so glad we had Ryan as our realtor!!! Ryan's #1 priority is his clients!!! If we ever decided to purchase another home we will definitely be contacting Ryan!" -- Kristie, Hamburg

Just before moving into her 1st home that she won among 6 other offers, Jessica talks about her experience

"I worked with Ryan for about 3 months looking for the perfect home. Throughout the entire proces he was patient, understanding and of course, knowledgeable. I've heard horror stories about agents pushing buyers into homes to make a quick sale, or not disclosing everything so they could get every penny of commission. Ryan was awesome, did not push me whatsoever, and gave his honest opinion of every home I looked at. I'd recommend him to someone 10 out of 10 times."  -- Tom, Wheatfield

"Professional, Courteous, Very Responsive, Very Pleasant, Knowledgeable in his trade, looks out for your interests......the best way to describe Ryan Connolly. Ryan helped us buy a condo. Despite his busy schedule, he always responded to our e-mails or calls as soon as possible. He never pressured us into accepting the seller's offer or terms just so that he can close the deal and move on to the next one; which means that he had our best interests at heart; even if it meant losing the sale and missing out on his commission. He even advised us to walk away from the deal if we were not comfortable with the numbers. This means he is very ethical. The referrals he provided (the property inspector, the attorney) were great - no issues. We would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!" -- Sushil & Maria, Lockport

"I worked with Ryan when buying my first house. He was very responsive and very easy to get ahold of via call, text, email, Facebook message, or whatever means you might have. He has a great network of contractors, bankers, lawyers, inspectors, etc. who make your real estate experience pleasurable. Ryan did a great job at helping us win a multiple offer scenario for our home with innovative and competitive bid strategy. I couldn't have been happier. I had a great home buying experience. " -- Julian, Buffalo

Steve & Jess talk about buying their first home

John says a few words about working with Connolly Home Sales

" I recommend Ryan because he was very helpful in guiding me through the process from start to finish & giving great advice along the way. What many people consider to be a stressful process turned out to be a fun and exciting one thanks to Ryan's help and dedication. Ryan was great with scheduling multiple viewings in short timeframes, and was very flexible to work around my full-time job schedule." --- Tom, Buffalo

"I was totally new to buying a home. Ryan's expertise and step-by-step approach was such a help to me. Honestly, I didn't worry one bit. I was confident Ryan had it all covered. Thank you so much!" --- Carolyn, South Buffalo

"Ryan fit me with the perfect home and was able to deliver excellent customer service through his knowledge, professionalism and willingness to answer all of my questions and concerns throughout the process. Thank you for all your help!" -- Deanna, N Buffalo

Making sure the ENTIRE family is pleased

"I feel like there are a lot of pushy, too-much-makeup-wearing, BMW-driving real estate agents out there. When we started looking at homes, we knew we definitely DIDN'T want that. It's important to me that my agent is someone I would actually want to hang out with. Like, a person who recycles, reads the newspaper, and listens to NPR. :-) I'm not sure if Ryan indeed listens to NPR, but he's definitely someone who is highly educated, insightful, honest, and so easy to relate to. He's got a quick sense of humor and lots of patience. He answers texts almost instantaneously. He gives forthright feedback on houses and has a spot-on understanding of the market. We are looking in a very competitive, low-inventory area and I feel we have a huge advantage with Ryan by our side. The best part? He never comes to a showing without a flashlight...which he has shined into every crack and crevice of every basement we have seen. If you are looking for an agent who is smart and cool, but also super meticulous, call Ryan." -- Annemarie, Snyder

"Ryan is thorough, thoughtful, and understands the market to the advantage of the buyer & seller (we have used him for both). It is my pleasure to recommend Ryan to other potential home buyers." --- Ray & Kerri, Williamsville

"Ryan was an AMAZING realtor!! Before someone recommended Ryan to me and my husband I had tried to contact a few other realtors who just decided never to get back to me. Ryan was ALWAYS available when you needed him and if he wasn't he had made arrangements for someone else to be available to us. I especially liked that Ryan was available via text, email, or phone because for me and my husband it was much easier to email and text rather than call because of our jobs. Ryan showed us numerous houses and was full of wonderful information; we learned a lot in the process working with Ryan. We are SO happy with our house and so happy that we got to work with Ryan. We HIGHLY recommend Ryan and if we are ever in the market again for a house we will definitely be calling him." -- Jill, Lewiston

"Ryan did an excellent job of making the process of selling our home as easy as possible. He discussed the reality of selling our home and a realistic price and timeline. Additionally, he utilized all his various marketing tools to sell our home as quickly as possible." --- Scott & Shannon, Cheektowaga

Happy clients are the best

"My attorney said that Ryan was great to work with. He pushed when he needed to, but not too much and followed up on all the paperwork. He was great to work with!" --- Kathy, Tonawanda

"Ryan was always there for us and always helped in whatever we needed." --- Dave & Kristen, Amherst

What is the agent's greatest strengths?: "Market and industry knowledge; professionalism; exceptional attention to detail." What was the most valuable service the agent offered?: "Solid advice and guidance throughout the entire process." --- Melissa, E Amherst

"Ryan through this was over the top helpful -- called contractors, set and attended appointments, came to the inspection -- all extras that were great appreciated. We trusted his expertise and guidance completely. And we are referring everyone we know to him!" -- Julian & Dylan, Williamsville

What is the agent's greatest strengths?: "Communication with sellers agent, getting us in touch with our loan officer and attorney -- both whom were excellent." --- Deb & Tom, Lockport

What is the most valuable service the agent offered?: "Experience and knowledge of the homebuying process!"  --- Donna, Buffalo

"Not for one moment did my wife and I feel alone during our first home-buying experience. Ryan quickly became a friend first and agent second. We couldn't have done any of this without his help. He is an absolute credit to RE/MAX and the profession. Our experience could not have been better!" --- Jason, West Seneca

Always ready to solve a problem

"Words can never express my gratitude for all of your help through this process. You have gone above and beyond and for that I will be forever grateful." --- Nichole, Buffalo

"My experience with RE/MAX goes beyond mere coincidences, for when one individual has two positive and exceptional experiences, in sequence, over a 7-year time span, the outcome speaks to the quality of the sales force. I appreciate my realtor's efforts of as they have made our transactions pleasant and rewarding experiences. We all know that this is not the usual experience one finds with real estate transactions." --- Mario, Williamsville

"He is always prepared and called us back immediately to answer questions. We have already referred him to friends and family." --- Christopher and Crystal, Pendleton

"He was effective during negotiations, plain-spoken on the pros and cons of houses I viewed, and very accessible and reassuring when I needed it." --- Kevin, Buffalo
