We met Brian several years ago while attending open houses (just to kick the tires) and discovered we had mutual friends. While we decided to stay in our home at that time, we were able keep in touch with Brain through some professional endeavors. First impressions are important and as a potential buyer Brain defiantly struck us as a knowledgeable and trusting agent. We felt very comfortable with him.
When we did decide that we would put our home of 20+ years in Santa Clara on the market, Brian was the one we selected to be our agent. Over the years we had made several improvements to the home but the first thing was to have him suggest changes/improvements that would make a difference in showing the house and in any offering price. There was nothing major to do and his suggestions had a small cost but a very positive impact on how the place looked and on the final selling price.
While we were planning on listing the home in mid to late fall we had to shorten that schedule because we purchased a home in another state and had to close on that place in a little over 60 days. This is where Brian shinned. We had to get our Santa Clara home ready to list in a very short time. Through Brian’s connections, we sped up the process of getting the house ready, decided on a listing price, and completed everything in our short timing window. The home sold in one week at $100K over asking.
Brian went the extra mile on everything, including finding a short term rental for us. His experience, knowledge of the market, and connections all contributed to turning a non-normal real estate transaction to a normal easy one. He always had our best interest at mind. Plus, as someone has noted, he is a really nice person.
I would highly recommend Brian to anyone seeking to sell or purchase a home.
