      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Bound Brook, NJ.
      Brandon was referred to me by a family friend after I sold my condo in Hudson county and began our house search closer to my family. I sent Brandon a list of houses that I had been eyeing from my own research. He went through the list and weeded out ones that were already under contract. He took us out that very next weekend to go through a handful of houses. It was clear right away that Brandon knows a lot about real estate and what to keep an eye out for. One of the things I appreciated the most about Brandon was his honesty and willingness to point out a potential flaw in a home even if it would end up being a deal breaker for us. He was in no rush to push us into a house like some realtors are. He really wanted us to find the right house, at the right price and he quickly built our trust in him. Brandon was very diligent in doing research on houses we liked, sending emails into the late night hours and always responding very quickly. I never had to follow up with him or ask the same question twice. In fact, I think Brandon's responsiveness and flexibility was what gave us a leg up on the house we ended up buying. He showed it to us within hours of receiving my email saying that we were interested on the day it was listed. It is difficult to find anyone that takes pride in their job and does it well but Brandon is one of the best. I feel that Brandon went above and beyond on so many occassions for us. I am a hard person to impress but he did so every step of the way with his attitude, professionalism, knowledge and helpful insights. He even went as far as to change the flapper in the toilet in our new house and order us a new garage door opener! He really cared about us and we couldn't have thanked him enough. Although I hope that we do not need to go through the home buying/seller process again soon, I do hope to work with Brandon again in some capacity in the future.  MoreLess

      Sold a home in 2013.
      My wife and I were very lucky to find Brandon Acken showing a home in Bridgewater during an open house one Sunday afternoon. We had worked with another realtor from a different company the prior spring and were very unhappy with their service, so we decided to start the hunt back up in late summer ourselves. We walked into the open house in Bridgewater in September and loved the potential and location of the home. After reviewing the home and talking with him for almost an hour we signed on with him, put an offer in, and bought the home. He was great!

      We did things backwards and now needed to sell our home because we were about to buy the new one! Due to Brandon's real estate knowledge and professionalism we decided to list our current home in a nearby town five minutes away with him before our new house was even under contract. He was very patient with us as were doing some renovations prior to being able to list the home. He gave tons of great recommendations and helped us to rearrange/stage areas of the house. We met to discuss values and figures and he went the extra mile to get comps in the area and visit other homes for sale before we came up with a listing price. Brandon even had people lined up and in mind to see the home before the sign was posted in my front yard! We had offers the first weekend and were under contract right away.

      Brandon definitely sets the bar high...great home brochures and photography, knowledge of real estate in the area, available 24/7, immediate call backs, concern for his clients, and much more. For instance...I couldn't take any more time off from work so he even helped me set-up my fire inspection, check my alarms, installed a fire extinguisher and met the inspector there!

      If you need to buy or sell your home look no further! Thanks for all your help Brandon.

      Bought a home in 2013.
      Brandon helped us purchase our home in Hillsborough, NJ. He is without a doubt the most thorough and helpful professional that I have ever worked with. He was always able to listen and provide advice, and he took into account our needs, dislikes and likes in helping us find our house. He consistently followed up with us and kept us in the loop with every step of the process. If he did not know the answer to a question (which was rare) he would find out the answer and get back to us very quickly. He was highly recommended to us, and we would highly recommend him to anyone.

      In short - Brandon is thorough, courteous, and most of all, helpful. My wife and I would strongly recommend him for your real estate needs.
