Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 1999 in Malibu, CA.
I have know Brian for many years. He is hard working, knowledgeable and in the real estate sales profession for the long run. He sold me the lot for my current home in 1999 and he has kept in touch ever since then. He is currently selling another house that I own.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Mar Vista, Los Angeles, CA.
In selling both my home residence and another property, Brian utilized realtor professionalism surpassing that of any other realtor I've come across thus far. His promotion of our house through excellent advertisement and photography as well as through creative decorative touches, such as a fountain, plants, and barbecue pit all added to the attractiveness of our house to would-be buyers. Our house, in a down market, eventually sold. Our other property, through Brian's assertive negotiating skills as well as his diligent research got us far beyond what most if not all other realtors would have been able to obtain. Brian Selem went way beyond what I had expected from a realtor. He is a class act.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Crenshaw, Los Angeles, CA.
There are two things really basic things that set Brian Selem apart from other realtors. First, he takes your call, regardless of the scale of the project. As a homeowner with a small budget, I was aware when walking into his Brentwood office that I was a very small fish, yet I was always treated as a super VIP.
Secondly, bar none, he knows more about investment potential than any other realtor. Originally, I had contacted him about a duplex, and it is clear his knowledge on real estate investment far surpasses that of a regular agent. If you are interested in income property or any type of short sale/reo or foreclosure, this is your man, end of story. Most agents spoke to before finding Brian adeptly know how to sell a house. Brian is a business man, who does real estate.
I mostly worked with his associate, the unbelievably wonderful Rona Sacks, who was so knowledgeable, supportive and fierce in her protection of me as her client. I cannot recommend Rona enough. But Brian was there every step of the way, even providing a little manly muscle as a presence during the inspection.
Through Rona and Brian's charm, perseverance, keen negotiation skills and patience, I bought the cutest house in the entire world. It is one that I can actually afford, and one that has appreciated greatly in the time I have lived there.
