Kevin handles all facets of real estate within the Lakes Region, and also handles property management.

What Our Clients Say

I am not here to sell homes. I am here to educate buyers and sellers. The more informed my clients are, the more comfortable they are. A home is the largest investment most people make and I want them to be confident that I am there to protect their interests and put them in the best possible position. I am extremely grateful to all my clients to allow me the opportunity to work with them.

We have used Kevin for both our personal and investment properties. He is truly a pleasure to work with and has a vast knowledge of the real estate industry. Professional, Responsive and the only Realtor we or you should ever use.

Keith Stevens


Kevin is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We had not been looking for a home for long before we found him, and it was clear we didn’t need to look any further. He was responsive every step of the way. Sent us houses on the market, or that were going to be going on the market. We live pretty far away, so he was very flexible in arranging times to show us places (including on short notice). He also knows everyone, so he was able to recommend good handy-men/women, contractors, landscapers…
He also knows or finds out all the different rules (such as HOA) that come with each property in certain neighborhoods. He goes above and beyond and we really enjoyed working with him.

Heather Toole


Kevin Shaw was a pleasure to work with and made the sale of our home easy! He was so knowledgeable about the market and what constitutes a good offer, and guided us through the process of selecting the best offer for us. He was a partner in the process, working toward getting us the most for our home, as painlessly as possible. His relaxed demeanor and attention to detail kept the stress level low from start to finish.

Johanna Buoncontri


Kevin Shaw came highly recommended to my husband and I through friends who also worked with him. We worked with Kevin on both a property search and a property sale in the Southdown Community. Kevin is everything you want in a RE professional. He knows the whole South Down/Long Bay community very well along with the rest of the NH Lakes Region.

Along with being a great guy and enjoyable to deal with Kevin is an expert at his job. He’s creative, flexible, resourceful and does what it takes to get the job done. We are grateful to have worked with Kevin. He made it easy and painless and we really couldn’t recommend Kevin Shaw anymore! Definitely call him – you will not be disappointed!

My wife and I recently sold our condo in Southdown Shore using realtor Kevin Shaw of Roche Realty. Kevin was a dynamic presence all through this process, courteous, helpful and put the sale together in record time. I give Kevin and Roche realty very high marks and recommend them with enthusiasm

Senior Fixed Income Portfolio Manager

Kevin is one of those rare individuals who truly listens to what is important for our needs. We have known him for many years and he has responded to many fact-finding requests that didn’t result in any transactions but we never felt that he was not willing to help. So, when we did have opportunities to make changes in our real estate we felt very comfortable reaching out to Kevin for expert help. Our experience has been that he is receptive, informative, and available in a ‘non-pushy’ way. We are happy to provide insight to anyone wanting to hear additional comments.



Kevin has a vast knowledge of the entire real estate industry.

We have used him for our vacation home and investment properties.

He is efficient, detail orientated, and easy to deal with on both a personal and professional level.

His networking connections are second to none and we would strongly recommend using Kevin for any and all of your real estate needs.

Marie Odonnell


Kevin Shaw is the best!! We first met Kevin when we went to an open house, he had listed but we had the wrong day. The owner of the condo called Kevin and he came right over and was able to show us the house and give us a tour and info on the community of South Down Shores. We had just sold a lake house we had for 20 years in another state and knew nothing about the Laconia area. Kevin is very knowledgeable about the area and community. He is honest, professional, funny, and makes you feel comfortable by not pressuring you into any deals. Kevin responded to our many questions right away and was very flexible with his time as we were coming from another state to view properties. Thanks to Kevin he found the perfect place for us. We highly recommend Kevin Shaw and the Roche Group for any of your real estate business.

We live in Boston, Massachusetts, and have never had to worry about our condo since leaving it in Kevin’s hands. Here are a few of the skills and attributes that we value in Kevin and that make our lives easier as rental/investment property owners:

  • His has a thorough understanding of the real estate market and the needs of renters and investment property owners, as well as buyer and sellers;
  • He is a great resource. He is well connected and respected by his peers, customers and vendors; and when an issue arises Kevin always recommends a solution;

Client June 2021

My husband and I just purchased a condo in Laconia and we fully acknowledge that we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Kevin. His network in the area and knowledge of the region were instrumental in helping us find our place. Looking for a property on the lake while living out of state and during a worldwide pandemic could have been overwhelming and frustrating. Yet, Kevin was able to make the process easy and stress-free. He connected us to properties quickly, was responsive to all of our questions, and gave us honest and candid feedback along the way. If you are looking for a place in the lakes region, set yourself up with the BEST partner and call Kevin.

Dan Rose


I had a lot of land to sell, called Kevin Shaw, I told him what I wanted and he is a no BS kind of guy and got the deal done. Kevin is easy to deal with. I would recommend Kevin not only for selling, but I also have used him for purchases too!!!



Kevin Shaw is a “professional” Real Estate agent. I trust him completely to do what is right for us ( his clients) vs making a sale for the sake of making a sale. I would never use another agent.

Rosa Blais


We had a great experience selling our home with Kevin Shaw. Kevin is very professional and patient. He has his client’s best interest in mind working towards what is best for them. We will continue to work with Kevin in the future.
