We recently moved to Northern Michigan and needed to start looking for a new home. We contacted Wally Kidd at Kidd & Leavy Real Estate Co. to help us with this process. Wally was great to work with, as was Emily, his assistant. The beginning of our search consisted of emails and phone calls. They were always prompt in responding to our requests and when we were ready to look at homes Wally always worked within our schedule. Wally is caring, honest, and knowledgeable about the community and the area. His team at Kidd & Leavy made our house buying process effortless.Marc and Margie Jacobs
We knew right away we wanted to work with Wally because he's the best. Everywhere we went in the Walloon Lake area people asked us if we had met Wally yet. From the second we sat down and laid out our dreams to him, he worked tirelessly to make it happen. We are no strangers to real estate, but the professionalism, honesty, genuine care & love of this area that Wally brings to every single transaction is unbeatable. For him it wasn't just 'finding us a house' it was hearing our dream, believing in it & making it happen. Not to mention he's a hoot in person, Wally is one of the greatest assets to this community & anyone who works alongside him, or becomes his client can call themselves lucky.Kalin and Matt Sheick
We listed our house with Wally Kidd in February 2015. The house had been listed with two other realtors for four years and had rarely been shown. To say that we were getting discouraged was an understatement!Sandy and Ned McClurg
We were impressed with Wally from our first visit with him. His enthusiasm, ideas about how to list the house and information about the market was so impressive! Wally did an amazing job of advertising the house from the very start. He never stopped doing everything possible to market the house. Several friends in the area mentioned to me that they had never seen a house so frequently advertised in local media.
Consequently, the house sold just a few months later, even in a very poor market in our price and house size range. We were thrilled with all of the great work that Wally did in selling our house. We highly recommend him to anyone who wants a professional, dedicated and hardworking realtor!
