Loved working with him. He was always available answering questions. I felt he was always on my side and didn't pressure me into anything. Even when he thought my decision wasn't the best he gave me good advise but remained in my side. I certainly will use him in the future.

Brian was fantastic in all aspects of our home purchase and we will undoubtedly use him again in the future (if needed) and refer anyone in need of a realtor to Brian. We cannot stress how helpful he was in guiding the process, targeting areas and/or listings to review, and most importantly, always communicating timely and being willing to meet for showings (even on short notice). Brian was a dream for this first time home buyer!

Brian has my unqualified recommendation. He is professional, personable, considerate, and fully knowledgeable about the areas he serves. Brian listened closely as I described my priorities and also to my comments about the properties we looked at, which made for a great working relationship, in addition to making the normally high stress process of finding a new home much less stressful and significantly accelerating the process. I look forward to working with Brian when it's time to move!
Brian is the best agent you are ever going to have! He helped us finding homes in a highly competitive market - he is very thorough with his work, very responsive, cares more about what you want, rather than getting you to just buy. Brian is very patient - knows his real estate market and very personable. We have had other real estate agents before him - and while they have been all good - Brian is just more efficient and cares more about her clients. One awesome quality about him - is that he is relentless in getting information - he will call whoever he needs to get info, keep the seller's agent in line, and make sure everything is on track.
Brian is just great!

I would not hesitate to recommend Brian. His professional manner and sound advice was crucial during the very stressful buying and selling process. Our house sold very quickly thanks to his marketing strategy and he helped us find the perfect second home. He always responded to inquiries honestly and quickly. He was there through every step of the process making sure we were comfortable with every decision. His experience was obvious as he helped us navigate through some less than ideal situations. As a first time seller there was a lot I didn't understand but he patiently explained every step of the process. I am very glad he was recommended to me and will always recommend him in the future.
There were a few things that set Brian apart as an absolutely spectacular agent:
(1) He puts his client first. I know I had a lot of houses I'd throw his way and a lot of limitations to when I could go see them, but he was always on top of setting things up whenever and wherever. It is very apparent that he has a passion for what he does and his sense of accomplishment as a real estate agent stems from his clients' satisfaction.
(2) He also did a wonderful job of listening to what I was truly looking for and getting the perfect property listings to me. He never tried to "sway my impression" of the property to make it seem like it matched what I was looking for, as some agents more interested in closing a sale and less interested in the client's needs tend to do. He was always honest and let me form my own opinion on how well it fit what I wanted.
(3) He looked out for things the property had that I may not have noticed. As a first time home hunter, this was HUGE for me. I thought I knew the important things to look for, but Brian would see things and point them out that someone without experience like myself would never notice. Things like that save you from potential upsets after buying a house and discovering these when it's too late.
(4) He made sure I never gave up. The house market is weird sometimes, and while some may go out and find the place they want in the first month, others may take a while. it look me over 6 months. After some time, it's easy to loose hope in finding what you want. Even when there weeks of slim pickings, Brian made sure to keep touch and kept me going in the search, even when I started to doubt I'd ever find something.
I eventually found my perfect house. It was in my number one pick for a neighborhood, it is exactly the size and design I love, and Brian was crucial in finding and closing on it. Getting to know his diverse background and experience in not just Orlando, but other real estate markets, really sets him apart in how he approaches the real estate business and how he successfully finds his clients their next homes. If you want someone you can trust, who has your best interests at heart, Brian is your guy.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Vero Beach, FL.
We just purchased a condo in Vero Beach, FL last November (2013). Thanks to our
realtor Brian Spain it was a painless experience. We were not familiar with the Vero
market at all, Brian's local knowledge of the area was a big benefit. Our purchase happen to be a foreclosure which in itself can be an intimidating process during closing. Thanks to Brian's professionalism and preparedness we had absolutely no
issues during the closing. I can confidently recommend Brian Spain for any Real Estate transaction you might have.
I was searching for a house on behalf of a friend living abroad, so the decision making was out of my hands. Mr. Spain was extremely flexible with finding homes that fit the often changing specifications set forth by my friend. While very professional, Mr. Spain had an ease and humor that made him extremely easy and enjoyable to work with. Sadly, my friend decided to look for a home outside of the Orlando area, and so I no longer was in need of Mr. Spain's services, but when I am in the market for my own home, I will definitely contact him. I cannot recommend him enough.

We used Brian Spain to purchase a house in Orlando, FL. Brian was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and always quick to respond for the entire process.
We knew we wanted to purchase a house in Orlando, but didn't have a preference for any particular neighborhood at first. Brian would meet us to show houses all over the city to help narrow down neighborhoods. My wife and I both work during the day and Brian was willing to meet us late in the afternoons after work and on weekends to show houses. We looked at houses for about 2 months before putting in an offer on the short sale that we eventually purchased.
Brian was helpful when walking through houses with ideas and his honest opinions about any house. Brian is very hardworking and is clearly very knowledgeable about the entire process of buying a home.
Since the house we purchased was a short sale, we had to deal with additional issues and Brian was great at helping us navigate those. For instance, our inspection turned up polybutylene piping that would have to replaced before we could get insurance on the house. Brian negotiated with the bank to reduce our closing costs by the amount that it costs to re-pipe the entire house. Also, when our sellers weren't out of the house the day before closing, he helped negotiate a short term lease so we could be reimbursed for the extra days they had to remain in the house. We had issues with the sellers even after closing and Brian continued to help us even though the deal was officially closed.
We would recommended Brian to anyone looking for a house. He is very responsive, knowledgeable and hard working. You will never second guess that you're getting Brian's best every time you talk to him.
