Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA.
I worked with Brian when buying my current condo as a short sale. Though normally a short sale process can be not only time consuming, but convoluted as well, my experience was anything but.

Brian responded quickly to email questions, and interfaced well with the seller as well as getting comps to talk through with the seller's lender's assessor. If that sounds like a complicated thing, it probably is - I don't know myself, because I didn't need to know - Brian handled it all.

All I had to do was this, 'My offer is X.' After that, Brian took care of the rest.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Bay Terraces, San Diego, CA.
brian is a mild mannered person/agent and his help with the short sale of our house went smoothly...very professional, understanding of our needs and very knowledgable in his profession...we were lucky to have brian on our side as the sale went through without hassles, and the fact that brian only did one open house, we got a buyer right away, and to add more, he never put a for sale sign in our front yard...he also told us that we can still purchase a house after two years, and if it's so, i will hesitate calling brian all of those having difficulties, i recommend calling brian...thanks for all the help brian, more power!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Bay Terraces, San Diego, CA.
We worked with Brian to find our dream home in the San Diego area. We had very strict rules on what we wanted (3bd/2bth, 1700sq/ft) in a nice area that was fully updated. Our budget was tight and we didn't want to spend money on any major repairs (walls, bathrooms, kitchens). Brian was very understanding and showed us several homes in the area until we found the one that was perfect for us. Not only did he answer our calls at any time, he was very easy going and was always on our side. Not once did I feel like he was forcing us into a home we didn't want. When it came down to the negotiations of closing costs, repairs, etc., Brian was stern and fair and got us a nice check at the end. I would highly recommend Brian to be your agent!

Thank you for the wonderful review! I was very happy to help. Just so it is a little more clear, the check was for closing cost negotiated after our home inspection was complete. There were a few things wrong with the home that we would not have seen without a home inspection. After receiving the report, I took these issues up with the seller and got them to contribute $2500 for the buyer's closing costs.
