Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2013.

I signed a listing agreement with Mr. Semrad earlier this year to sell my property. He had no suggestions on things to do to make it sell, except to fix a loose tile in the entry. He was very quick to reply when I contacted him on Zillow to sell my property, but as soon as the listing paperwork was signed, his desire and sense of duty to communicate timely and sufficiently took a nose dive. I did the work to find him a cache of photos, since it was clear his plan was to use a cell phone to take photos at a later date. Even at that, he posted the exact photos from the photobucket stream I told him NOT to use (old paint color and old original ceiling fan). His written MLS ad also contained typos and spelling mistakes. I placed two to three calls with questions about his suggested listing price, the wrong photos he posted, spelling mistakes, etc. With each call it took him days to get back with me. This is unacceptable in my opinion, especially with a time sensitive endeavor like selling your property to get out from under thousands of dollars in mortgage debt, when you have potential double payments looming.

I called him a final time to terminate our listing agreement, and he expressed discontent about having "already invested a few hundred in marketing expenses." He was also upset about "canceling" his open house he allegedly had set up for the following weekend. Coincidentally, I had previously asked him about setting up an open house days earlier when we first signed, but he never reconnected with me to discuss having that alleged open house. During this final termination discussion, he also informed me that there had already been an offer communicated for around $10K+ BELOW the list price, but he said he didn't share that information since I probably would not accept the offer. According to basic real estate laws, rules, and ethics, not sharing bona fide offers with your client, no matter the amount, is potentially illegal. So, I was upset about that, to say the least. He informed me he had also been receiving a lot of interest and activity from potential buyers who would be financing with FHA loans. He deflected all that activity telling those folks that "FHA will not finance condo loans." Truth be told, FHA will finance a condo loan, depending on the condo in question. Ironically, my eventual buyer ended up financing with an FHA condo loan.

So, I hired a much more committed and effective realtor who had a full price offer ($3K above Mr. Semrad's suggested list price) on my property in 4 days. I just closed yesterday with that FHA buyer, but during this process I learned that Brice had told my buyer when she first called to inquire that it was "already sold." I believe that this was around the same time I terminated my listing agreement with Mr. Semrad (he must have still appeared on the websites as the listing agent), so my guess is that he was upset and wanted to deflect any incoming offers that would not yield a potential commission check for him. This was the last straw that prompted me to write this review. I do not recommend anyone utilize Mr. Semrad as their buying or selling representative.

Brice was extremely fast in getting in contact with me and helping me out. The times he has not been available he has been sure to make sure I had the help I needed. I would absolutely recommend him!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Oklahoma City, OK 73162

I have been a mortgage lender for over 15 years and have worked with MANY Real Estate Agents in my career. Brice is by far one of the best I have worked with. Not only is Brice very knowledgable about the Real Estate market in Oklahoma City and surrounding areas, but he is also very in tune with today's lending programs and guidelines. I have seen first hand how he negotiates to get his customers the absolute best deal available, and how he communicates with his customers to keep them in the loop along the way. I would highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sale a home in Oklahoma City to give Brice a call and let him go to work for you.

Bought a home in 2013 in Navina, Cedar Valley, OK 73044.

My husband and I used Brice to buy our home and had a wonderful experience! When we first started looking at houses we did not have a realator selected but started to look on the internet at new houses on zillow. We sent a message to 2 different realators and Brice was the first to respond. To our surprise he turned not only into an excellent realator but a good friend. We feel blessed to have had such a great experience buying our home.

Sold a home in 2013 in Midway, Guthrie, OK 73063.

This is the second property Brice has sold for us. We walked away from this deal with $24,500 more in my pocket then I even expected. This guy has a paid Vegas trip in his near future from us. I don’t see how this deal could have been better. Thanks again Brice

Oh and go ahead and tell your wife to pack her bags also. :)

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Bethany, OK.

Absolutely an excellent job! House sold in 9 days. Brice was totally honest from the start about where we were; we bought into his suggestions and the experience was great. Fast closing - couldn't have been a better experience!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Edmond, OK.

After reading Brice’s reviews, I'll have to work hard on what else I can say. All of them sound exactly like how he worked to help us. I highly recommend buying for sure! I was surprised to find out that there were 2 sides to buying a property. The Seller has their agent and the buyer should also have their own to represent them. After explaining that and seeing how he protected us through the transaction makes me glad that we had someone on our side. We closed a couple weeks ago, but Brice still calls to check on us to make sure that everything is running around the house like we thought it would. Wish I could come up with more to say but thanks Brice.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Guthrie, OK.

Brice was so helpful when we sold our house and bought a new one. He did everything we asked. He always made time to show us houses more than once. He made sure we got the most for our house.

Helped me find the perfect home!! I tried working with other Realtors and had a hard time getting anyone to call me back. A friend of mine suggested giving Brice Semrad a call. So happy I did. A Realtor who actually answers his phone or calls you right back. When we found the house we loved he got our offer in on the same day and it was accepted by that evening!! Would definitely recommend him to anyone in the area looking to buy or sell your home.
