I've now purchased two homes with Brett. I met him when I was looking at buying my first home three years ago. He was the listing agent on a property I was interested in purchasing. The purchase didn't work out, but I ended up connecting with him. He became my agent, and looked at way more properties with me than any agent should have. He was endlessly patient, and answered all of my many questions, even when they were posed at strange hours. I went on to buy a house I love, but wouldn't have considered if it hadn't been for Brett. He helped me navigate the purchase process, even when it hit numerous snags. We've kept in touch, and this year, when I decided to buy a rental property, he again helped me find something I love, at a great deal. I really can't recommend him highly enough.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 in Garden District, New Orleans, LA.

We had the pleasure of working with Brett during our relocation to New Orleans. Brett's knowledge of the area coupled with affable personality and ability to get to know his clients made him the perfect agent. Brett took the time to listen and get to know our family as we searched for the right home. Brett assisted us with finding a short term rental home to allow us time to search without pressure and subsequently helped us find the perfect home for our family. When it came time to resell our home Brett's efforts were amazing. The showing of the house was remarkable and resulted in unprecedented attendance and offers!!! We highly recommend Brett for your real-estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $175K in Marrero, LA.

I worked with Brett Rector twice now. He helped me look for a house that unfortunately we ended up not purchasing. A few years later when I was ready to look again I knew I had to go back to Brett because he was so helpful the first time around. Mr. Rector is very professional, knowladgable, and has a great personality. Since I was new to buying a house he made sure I knew exactly what I was getting into and what would be best for me. If ever I am to buy another house or even sell the one I'm in, Brett will be the first person I contact. Highly recommended!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Milan, New Orleans, LA.

Brett Rector put up with my wife's and my indecision and procrastination for much more than the ordinary person ever would. He helped us find and buy what turned out to be the perfect house for us. His advice was always welcome and what we wanted and needed. He was always a pleasure to deal with and made the process of home buying a great experience.

Sold a home in 2008 in Audubon, New Orleans, LA 70118.

Brett Rector has both helped me purchase a home and sell a home. He was so accommodating and went above and beyond for the sale when the market was terrible for me to be selling. Hey, the man bakes his own cookes for open house. What could be better than that? He was always available and I was treated as if I was his only client. I knew better but he alwys responded promptly and managed to do what seemed to be the impossible. He is my total realtor and I recommend him to everyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Touro, New Orleans, LA.

Brett was my agent for two homes that I bought and was the listing agent for one of the homes when it was on the market for sale. He is extremely knowledgeable about the process of buying and selling property and always looks out for his client's best interest. I felt like I was in very good hands when working with Brett. He promptly responds to questions and concerns, and offers his honest opinion. Buying and selling a home can be a very stressful situation for many people, but it was so much fun for me because of Brett!

Bought a home in 2012 in Audubon, New Orleans, LA 70115.

We value Brett’s sense of humor, patience, and friendship, but his most impressive quality is his consummate professionalism. His guidance was invaluable in every aspect of our search and throughout the home purchase process. He knows the market, he knows the right way to do things, and he has the answers to questions we didn’t even know to ask! Brett understood our needs and we knew we could place our full confidence in his judgment and skill. Even though we often had to conduct business from several states away, Brett handled everything easily and effectively, keeping us informed and taking care of so many details. We could trust that he was always looking out for us. We feel very lucky that Brett was recommended to us when we were looking for a realtor. Brett was the perfect fit for us.

Fred was great to work with during the home-buying process. He was upbeat, asked great questions, and had a thorough knowledge of the New Orleans area. He always made himself available to help whenever we called. We came to value his long experience, his wisdom, and the great personal and professional contacts he has all across the city.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Irish Channel, New Orleans, LA.

Fred and Brett guided us completely though selling our house and purchasing another. They listened, they were realistic, and extremely responsive and professional with encyclopedic knowledge of the local market. Based upon their advice, we were able to sell our house in less than a day on the market and able to find another that was fairly priced. Fred and Brett acted as our advocate and clearly explained each step and kept us in the loop. Another advantage was their strong associations with other local professionals in house inspections and loan finance. Their partners in both finance and house inspections were extremely thorough and professional. As real estate experiences go, this was the best series I have ever had and would highly recommend them and their team when you consider buying or selling your next house. They worked hard for us and ensured that we got what we wanted. Thank you again Fred and Brett. Stefan Marks

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Uptown, New Orleans, LA.

Fred Buras has helped me purchase two homes, one in 2008 and again in 2012. Each time, Fred has shown the utmost skill, candor, loyalty, and knowledge of the property, the market, etc. I know that when Fred gives me advice, it is done with my best interest in mind and not just to “make the sale.” I trust his advice, as he has proven to me, time and again, that few people know more about the New Orleans real estate market than he does. At the same time, Fred is always professional and respects my wishes. Fred continues to redefine the concept of “agent” in a market where too often the best interest of the buyer/seller are not always put first. In doing so, he outshines his contemporaries. In short, I would never use another agent and neither should you. Fred, my wife and I love our new home and we’ll call you, again, in a few years when we are looking to trade up.

Bought a home in 2012 in Audubon, New Orleans, LA 70115.

My husband and I were looking for a retirement home in New Orleans. Brett just happened to be the Listing agent for a home we were interested in. He listened carefully to all our needs and desires and didn't waste our time by showing us homes that wouldn't be suitable for us. He did prompt us to see a home which we didn't think we were interested in and we ended up being crazy about it and buying it. This is an agent that listens and follows through. Also, he was extremely helpful with closing details and extra items since we were a long distance away. I can't recommend him highly enough.
