I've had the pleasure of working with Brian twice now - the fact that he represented us a buyers for our first home back in 2010, and we chose to work with him again when selling the same home in 2014 is probably enough said, but to provide a few highlights:
1. Brian is a long-time resident of the Mt. Washington/Glassell Park neighborhood, so he is extremely knowledgeable of the area.
2. His background in structural engineering and construction makes him an ideal agent for buying homes in the area, since a lot of the houses there are built on hillsides.
3. He is an keen strategist and excellent negotiator; though he has a very sweet, quiet, calm and respectful demeanor, he can be like a pit bull when he needs to stick up for his clients.
With regards to our most recent transaction: 1. Brian worked with us for months to prepare to list our house - he helped us coordinate upgrades, repairs and enhancements to help ensure we got the best return on our investment. 2. He was very patient in waiting for us to be ready to proceed with the listing. 3. Once we were ready to proceed with the listing, he worked with us to come up with a winning strategy, covering every detail from big to small, starting with the timeline and listing price to preparing for the open house. 4. He showed us how similar strategy had helped him sell other homes in the area very quickly (within two weeks) and he was spot-on, we had multiple offers after just two open houses, and an accepted offer within less than two weeks of listing.
His advice, strategy and negotiations yielded the absolute best deal possible for us - we could not be happier, and we would not hesitate to work with Brian again in the future, or to refer any of our friends and family to him.
