Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in South Lake Tahoe, CA.
We have been involved in many R/E transactions over the decades and cannot think of an agent we have been happier with. We had interviewed several candidates to list and sell our Tahoe cabin. The escrow officer we had used on a previous transaction didn't think twice when we asked "Who in town has been successful and busy moving listings?". We knew we were in good hands from the first call on. With Brent everything get done NOW. His comps were style specific, and his pricing what we were expecting. What we didn't expect was the speed and execution of professional photographer, awesome featured listing posted in a couple of days on all possible venues, and an accepted offer in four! The closing was a little difficult due to buyer issues, but Brent proactively navigated through it with the buyers agent and never left us wondering what was going on. Brent is very professional, conscientious, and an overall great guy. Thanks Brent.

Brent was outstanding in helping the purchase of a home in the Tahoe Keys area. I would highly recommend him and can say with 100% confidence that if we were to purchase another home or sell our current home in the South Lake area, we would definitely use Brent again.
Our transaction was a very difficult transaction to close due the appraisal being $35k lower than the contract price, as well as the sellers being overly active in the closing process. Brent was able to help us navigate the difficult situation being open, honest and providing very timely advice. He always responded in a very timely manner to any question or action item we needed.

Brent is a great realtor. He is an even better person. He helped us sell our old home very quickly and was very patient in our search for a new home. He always responded quickly and had new houses to show us when our preferences changed. He also has knowledge in the construction of homes which is invaluable to inexperienced buyers. Great guy.

Brent found us the perfect house. He put together a great tour showing us a full spectrum of our options. He was always available and he always followed through on what was asked of him. He was very patient and I always felt he had our best interest in mind. He knows Tahoe well and I'd highly recommend working with him.

We are glad we were able to get Brent to help us search for a home in South Lake Tahoe then represent us in the purchase of our home. There were several challenges encountered with the sellers agent and Brent was able to effectively manage the process. He was clear in his communication and responded to calls and emails in a timely manner. He is well connected in the community and is able to offer suggestions to select other well qualified professionals such as electricians and contractors.
He is a true real estate professional and one that I would call when purchasing a home in the future.

We found Brent Johnson on Zillow. Since we had no personal references, we were a little apprehensive about this whole process at the beginning. But are we glad we went with Brent!
Brent was very professional and patient in helping us find a home that met our requirements. He was prompt and precise in all his communication and kept us abreast of everything we wanted to know. He really knows the area extremely well.
When we looked at properties, Brent would highlight the work that may be required on each property. He made us aware of the rather extensive work required on a property we otherwise liked. His warning (along with a home inspector's report) helped us avoid buying a property that would have been a pain down the line.
Brent has extensive contacts (roofers, home/pest inspectors, vacation rental consultants, etc) which was very useful in quickly arranging an inspection or getting an opinion on how well a property would do as a vacation rental.
In our negotiations, I am convinced he was on our side while helping to honestly broker a mutually agreeable price without setting unreasonable expectations on either side.
Overall we are extremely happy we went with Brent for our house search. There is a lot of hard-to-find insight one gets from an experienced broker like Brent which is hard to obtain just by browsing homes. We highly recommend Brent.
Thanks to Zillow for helping us find an excellent real estate agent!

Brent was a pleasure to work with. He was responsive and helpful in finding homes we were looking at and had great local knowledge. Brent made sure the post offer period went smoothly as we were not local and his assistance in setting up inspections and necessary paperwrok was appreciated. I look forward to continuing to work with Brent going forward as he can provide the local contacts i'm unaware of.
Bought a Other home in 2014 for approximately $450K in South Lake Tahoe, CA.
Brent was outstanding throughout the transaction. He covered everything well from the high level stuff around negotiation and contract issues to the smallest details of repairs, building access and permits. Would definitely recommend working with him!
