Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.425M in Twin Peaks, San Francisco, CA.
Everyone knows it's a tough market in SF right now, and you really need the best people on your team to manage the process - anything less is a doing yourself a disservice. I would highly recommend Brian. He is patient, very well informed, and held in high regard in the business. First offer on the first house and we got the deal done.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.325M in Corona Heights, San Francisco, CA.
We met Brian and his associate Joseph Hittinger at an open house. Even though we were working with another realtor at the time, we moved our business to Brian and Joseph. Why? He was responsive, professional, knowledgeable, well connected and all of the things you expect from a real estate professional. But the big difference was that he took the time to really understand what was important to us and why and was able to balance the demands of an insanely competitive market with our financial and emotional needs. We now live in a great place in a great location with great neighbors and quite simply could not have gotten here without Brian. Oh, and we actually managed to have fun along the way! Go with Brian, you won't be sorry.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Outer Mission, San Francisco, CA.
Brian is awesome! He was my agent in the recent purchase of a house in San Francisco. I am absolutely satisfied with Brian's results. Brian is dependable, honest, professional and courteous.

Brian's knowledge of San Francisco neighborhoods and the surrounding area is impeccable. I completely recommend Brian as an agent. I would definitely use Brian again in the future to sell or buy my next home!

Bought a home in 2013.
It has been a very pleasant experience working with Brian. I am very impressed by his deep real estate knowledge and experience, excellent negotiation skill, and great attention to detail. He is very driven, proactive, and professional. Thanks to his deep understanding of the market, we were able to smoothly purchase a property we like in this very competitive San Francisco housing market! He is very friendly and has great people skills. He treats clients like friends. He always kept us informed during the purchasing process, which made us very confident.

Closing escrow isn't the end of the service Brian provides. He also helped us with numerous requests after we got the property, with no hesitation at all!!

We'd definitely recommend Brian to anyone who is trying to find a piece of land in San Francisco!

Sold a home in 2012.
My beloved and I recently asked Brian to represent us in the purchase of a house in the northern California countryside. It is the house of my dreams, but it, and the transaction, were not without their quirks. In retrospect, I cannot imagine going through this experience without Brian. He has proven to us to be the consummate professional. As an agent, his knowledge is unimpeachable. He has been a successful negotiator and has kept us informed every step of the way. He is tenacious without being heavy-handed. He has worked so hard for us that I've felt through the entire process as if we were his only clients. He has helped me to focus when I was a nervous wreck. He has shared our enthusiasm and has a good eye for things aesthetic and practical.

I am giving Brian five stars only because Zillow won't let me give fifty. Brian gets my highest recommendation and my undying gratitude.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $525K in Yerba Buena, San Francisco, CA.
Brian is another breed of realtor. I contacted him at first via Zillow.com. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and proactive throughout the entire process making it less stressful. Brian dealt with the lender, the seller's agent, title company and the HOA board like a true champ. We feel that besides purchasing a new home, we have gained a valuable friend.

Thanks Brian for all your help and our wonderful new home!

Showed home in 2011 in San Francisco, CA.
Working with Brian was such a pleasure. Not only was he always professional and reliable, he also always had our best interests in mind. His commitment to us was felt every time that we met with him. He never failed to meet us and always made himself accessible. He is quick with correspondence both over the phone and by email and never once did we feel pressured to hurry and find a place. He is an expert in all of the areas that we were interested in and always told us what to look out for in both the positive and negative aspects of a certain location. He worked hard for us in all areas, whether it was inquiring about something that we asked about, working with our lender, dealing with negotiations, or talking to multiple agents on properties that we were looking at. He always came back to us with a response and usually more information than we had asked for. He is, perhaps, the most patient person we know as well! He is someone that we will work with for life. Thank you so very much.

After having worked with other real estate agents in the past, I was wary to try with another. Therefore I was shocked to have found an agent as wonderful as Brian. Not only was he there for me as an agent, he was also there for me as a person. I knew that he truly wanted to find the best place for me, not just something that would “work out” for me. I know that he genuinely cared about my feelings and wants. He listened with an open mind and a receptive ear. He had a team work approach was always patient and kind. He was professional, supportive, and an expert in his field. I will only be working with him in the future and hopefully by that time, he will still be available, because I know that other people are going to realize what a gem he is and he may have too many clients at that time!! Thank you for a wonderful experience.
