Team reviews

Bret made our house purchasing process a wonderful experience. He was on top of everything relating to the purchasing transaction all the way to making sure the house was set-up and ready for our first arrival. He was very proactive and attentive to all aspects of the transaction. This was a multi-year process with Bret as the property we wanted to buy was very specific so it took years before we finally were able to purchase one we wanted. Bret was ready to go right when we needed him to be letting us know immediately when one came on the market so we could move. Even after we closed Bret has made himself available to finish up loose ends and has been a great resource.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.175M in Truckee, CA.

We recently completed our 3rd real estate transaction with Bret, 2 of which were in the last 3 months. Bret sold us our first Truckee vacation home 15 years ago. When we decided to become permanent Truckee residents, he helped us find our dream home and sell our vacation home. We looked for more than a year to find the right house and Bret was more than patient with us during a trying time in the real estate market. He never let us lose faith that we would find the right house. He helped us make reasonable compromises while paying a fair market price, in spite of somewhat unrealistic sellers. The sale of our vacation home was quick and painless - Bret took care of all the details.

But equally important - Bret is a likable guy with a great sense of humor. We always had a good time when looking at homes! We would highly recommend Bret to our friends and family.

Bought a home in 2014 in Kingvale, Truckee, CA 96161.

We decided last spring to begin searching for a vacation home in the Truckee area. It was an extremely slow market in our price range with limited homes/condos being listed. Bret was extremely patient with us until we finally found something that met our requirements in late August. He kept us informed of any new listings, would explain to us pros and cons of each one (elevation, sun angle, noise, etc.) to help educate us. He was extremely flexible/accommodating on scheduling time for us to travel to Truckee to view listings.

He made the closing process go as smooth as possible, facilitating inspections, communicating with the lender, keeping us informed. Post close he has gone out of his way to ensure that the townhome was as it should be and facilitated a couple of fixes that needed to be done.

Bret was extremely easy to work with, very cordial and relaxed. He made the search and escrow experience as stress-free as he could. We'd recommend Bret (and if selling/purchasing in the future would use him again).
