Realtor, CA Real Estate Broker (7 years experience)
He worked very hard to get us the house we wanted. The process was not easy. He went above and beyond to get us our house of our dreams Even sold my house quickly to make a smooth transaction on both houses. This was a easy purchase but Brett and his entire staff deserve a huge thank you from us and will recommend him to anyone looking or selling a house
Brett is awesome! He's a no pressure kind of guy, and had so much patience with us first-timers. He was very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking at, and is a great negotiator. We ended up with a nicer property than we'd planned on finding, stayed within our budget, won a bidding war, and managed to pay less than the appraisal value. We will definitely recommend him to any of our friends or family members and would use him again in a heartbeat!

Thank you so much for the amazing review Jimmy & Karri! I can't wait to see the property after the remodel!
Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 in Newport Beach, CA.
I am a first time home buyer so I didn't know what to expect or even what I was really looking for. Brett provided me with a wealth of knowledge about what each area offered. Also, he determined what kind of purchase costs and returns I can expect for each. He didn't miss a beat when I handed him the list of homes I am interested in touring and within a day he had scheduled viewings that worked with my busy schedule. Brett continuously keeps me posted of new houses and price changes that are tailored to my criteria as soon as they come onto the market. Brett is still helping me search for the perfect home, but I couldn't be more happier with the experience thus far! Brett is and will always be my go-to Realtor and I love sharing my experience with all my family and friends!

Brett is a great realtor and I will definitely recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a property in the Southern California area!

Thanks for the great review Ryan! I had a blast helping you find the perfect first-home with you! Never hesitate to call if there is anything else I can assist you with!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Costa Mesa, CA.
Brett was extremely helpful in finding us our first home. We had very little knowledge of the process and he was very patient and kind in helping us with all of the necessary steps. Above all, my husband and I felt as though we could trust Brett completely throughout the entire process. He was never pushy and always gave us complete information. He quickly got a real sense of our taste and showed us several properties we were very interested in. We could not be happier in the home he helped us buy and he continues to check in on us to see if there is anything he can help with. I wholeheartedly recommend Brett for any realty need!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Perris, CA.
When my husband and I first decided to try to buy a home we were practically laughed out of several real estate offices. We didn't know the first thing about buying a house but it was something we dreamed of. We contacted a lender to see if this was even a possibility for us. We were given the go ahead to find a home by the lender. She recommended Brett MacLennan to us. We contacted Brett and talked with him about what we wanted, what we could afford, and what we needed. He was very quick to take all of the information to get us started. I will be honest and say that purchasing a home was NOT a walk in the park, but it was not at all Brett's fault. We had no idea just how competitive the market could be and how hard it could be to find what we wanted. We worked with Brett for over a year. Throughout the process he was always with us and definitely had our best interest in mind. He worked very hard to make the process go smoothly for us. We had several offers on the table and for some reason or another, none of them worked out for us. At one point I became hopeless. In the end missing out on our earlier offers was the best thing that could have happened. We got a much nicer home than we could ever have dreamed of thanks to his amazing negotiation skills and his prompt actions. Brett is very honest, professional, dedicated, knowledgeable, flexible, and he is definitely in your corner. I have and will continue to recommend Brett to friends and family in the future when they are considering buying or selling a home. In the end, I can say that Brett is great at the job he does.

You are the best Jennifer! Thank you so much for all of your continued support!
Brett has been awesome! He was our realtor for our first home and we also went with him for a short sale. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and very approachable. He is always on top of things and does a good job of keeping you in the loop. I would recommend Brett to anyone looking for a great realtor.
I am currently working with Brett and am very impressed with his service. He is always very quick to respond whenever I have questions or ask about certain properties, which is very important to me, especially after working with realtors in the past who did not respond so quickly. Brett emails me properties that match my criteria on a regular basis and follows up quickly, and is always available to show me a property when I ask. His knowledge of the local housing market and current trends are very helpful, and he also has good tips on the lending side which I have found extra helpful in helping getting approved for a loan. I highly recommend Brett and Hill Realty Group to any potential buyers or sellers looking for a top notch broker to help them find their dream home or to sell their current home!
