I have never had a realtor-broker who had the kind of hands on approach like you. This included everything from hanging pictures, checking the heating and cooling system, and most of all, advising me on reliable people whom I could hire to fix things. You did all of these things with a great sense of humor and a deft hand. Your easy going personality allowed me to feel secure and to not panic. I want all of your potential clients to know that you made yourself accessible to me by phone, text and e-mail anytime I tried to reach you.

When I spoke with you about my condominium, I was so incredibly pleased and relieved to find a broker such as you. Your knowledge of the development, models and past sales results are outstanding! Additionally, your honesty, straight-forwardness and marketing expertise were very evident during our conversations. What really impressed me was that even though I moved my listing to Sarasota Home Realty during the slowest sale time of the year, you still most effectively advertised, finding a buyer for my property in just 17 days! You also negotiated my sale so effectively that I received a sale price which was almost 10% higher than the most recent sale of the same model condominium! You set aggressive expectations and exceeded everyone.

As you know, I am an active real estate broker in the Chicago area, I have sold property for 27 years, I am in my company’s “Hall of Fame”, have managed several real estate offices – I mention these things because I KNOW when someone truly is an excellent Realtor. And Brian, you are an excellent Realtor. You have me a fair and honest evaluation of my property: you shared your expertise and knowledge not only of the current real estate market but also of my complex. You helped me by having the resources and people to have my property presented in its best possible light. You helped me to put the best possible asking price on my condo which resulted in an accepted offer in less than 2 weeks. Not only did you have excellent negotiation skills to get the property marketed and sold quickly, but as I understand it, for the highest price in the development.
