Our Yelp Reviews

insanely great service

He worked above and beyond his working hours to stay on top of everything keeping us on tract and in the loop.

After a phone call to Brian on Thursday about me relocating to San Jose, he called on Friday about a property on sale. We went to the open house on Saturday and our offer was accepted the following Thursday. Pinch myself, IT TOOK ONE WEEK! That is how incredible Brian Bernasconi is, he deserves 10 stars. The place had all the features we were looking for, double that, it was a duplex. He knew the best offer to assure it would be accepted. He was so excited, you would have thought he was purchasing the property for himself. The selling agent shared with the owner of Brian’s perseverance and tenacity and felt that we needed to be the new owners. He worked above and beyond his working hours to stay on top of everything keeping us on tract and in the loop. Brian followed up on all the approval transactions up through the closing. I am grateful and appreciate his knowledge, thoughtfulness, expertise and outstanding job, always going the extra mile. Thank you, Brian, for all that you did and continue to do, and for the open invitation to reach out when we need to.

He's the only person I know that could follow an agent to their house to wait for the client's answer and not have the selling agent feel bothered.

Brian Bernasconi is amazing!!! He helped us find our home in Willow Glen back in 2005. He took me to numerous showings and always listened to me complain about why the house wasn’t “the one.” When we finally found our house he worked very diligently to make sure we got the house. The seller was moving out of the area and wanted to make sure the sale went smoothly. The selling agent later told us that even though there were multiple offers, we got the house because of Brian’s solid reputation. Now, let’s fast forward to June 2017. My mom was looking to relocate to San Jose to be closer to family. I explained how crazy the housing market is in San Jose and let her know if could be a year before we found something that suitable. I suggested she give Brian a call. After talking to him for about 30 minutes he said he would follow up the next day as he thought he had something that was a perfect fit. The next day he called back and we went to look at a duplex. It was 5 minutes from our house and checked off every box on our wish list. Brian knew it was perfect for my mom and he fought very hard to close the sale. When he explained my mom’s situation to the selling agent, she also agreed it was a great fit. He’s the only person I know that could follow an agent to their house to wait for the client’s answer and not have the selling agent feel bothered. In fact, the selling agent was so impressed with Brian that she told us we were very lucky to have Brian representing us. In a crazy market our offer was accepted a week after we started looking. What more can I say?

Brian and Dan are walking encyclopedia of Los Gatos, Monte Sereno & Cambrian neighborhoods. They know every corner and every street of these neighborhoods.

Our experience with Brian and Dan has been simply Amazing, Awesome, Unbelievably Smooth and we felt like we are working with family friends throughout our transaction. I have worked with Brian for the last 12 years and he has always been great and patient in listening and understanding what exactly I need and then he recommends the right house with the right location. Also no shortcuts, he will show you houses in different locations to make you understand the exact house you want.
No matter the state of the real estate market, hot or cold, you need agents like Brian to glide you through the rollercoaster. Also, Brian and Dan are walking encyclopedia of Los Gatos, Monte Sereno & Cambrian neighborhoods. They know every corner and every street of these neighborhoods. Also, they have great working relationships with local agents which also helps in the offer process and getting the real picture rather than the sales pitch.
Work with this team without worrying about a thing. They are here to bring smiles and make life long customers rather than in for a quick buck.

Brian and Dan were by my side, overcoming obstacles and complications.

So, so grateful to have chosen Brian and Dan to be my agents on my first home purchase!!
I’ve known Brian personally for over 40 years, having grown up in the same community and gone to the same schools all of our lives. So when it came time to choose a realtor, knowing Brian’s work ethic, character and integrity like I have, there really was no other choice.
This was my first home purchase of my own after a divorce. I didn’t know anything about the business, the process, what to expect. Brian and Dan supported me every step of the way. They walked me through all of the stages with such patience and thoroughness. During the difficult home search process (I had a modest budget in an extremely slim and competitive market), Brian notified me immediately when he found something he thought would interest me. He would offer to meet me at the new listing within mere hours. My loan was somewhat difficult and complicated because of needing an asset based program instead of a traditional income based loan. But every step of the way, Brian and Dan were by my side, overcoming obstacles and complications. I was always amazed at how timely they were in getting things done or in getting back to me with answers. I felt bad that they were working such long hours!! It was so helpful to have the two of them as a team instead of just one agent juggling clients.
I just closed escrow on my first new home just yesterday and couldn’t be happier. I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment in utilizing Brian and Dan again in the future or recommending them to family and friends.

professionalism, friendliness, honesty.

Brian is not only the best realtor around, but his a very genuine human being with an amazing team, Christina his wife, and Dan his partner. During a difficult time in my life, after the loss of my husband, Brian and his team were very compassionate, empathetic, and did everything they could to make the process of selling my home as well as purchasing another home possible in a short amount of time. He walked me through the process, guiding me on what needed to be done, and what the next steps would be during the entire process. Brian and his team were always available at any time to answer questions or explain what the next steps would be. His professionalism, his friendliness, and his honesty are three of his strengths.
I never dreamt in 2 short months, I would not only sell my home well above asking price, as well as purchase and close on a new home which Brian and Christian both felt was a great fit for me. Christina and Dan did an outstanding job stepping in when Brian was unavailable. The housing market is fast paced at this time, and this team worked above and beyond their call of duty to make sure my best interest was a priority.
I will not only recommend Brian and his team to anyone looking for a realtor they can trust, who will put them first, and be honest with about the best way to approach any situation. I will always be grateful to Brian for his support, encouragement, and for making such a difficult time as easy as possible. I hope to return the favor to Brian and his team someday, by showing my support, encouragement, and letting others know, they will not be sorry to hire Brian, Christina, and Dan as their realtors!

OUTSTANDING customer service and high level of professionalism.

If you want to sell your property, hire Mr. Brian Bernasconi as your real estate agent! I recently hired Mr. Bernasconi to sell my father’s home and I was extremely impressed by his knowledge of the market, his OUTSTANDING customer service and his high level of professionalism. Without a doubt, I always felt he was looking out for my best interests and kept me informed of the process on a regular basis. The house was sold in an extremely short time frame and for significantly more than I had anticipated. Mr. Bernasconi walked me through the mountain of paperwork that needed to be signed, taking the time to answer all my questions. Whenever I texted or called him regarding the process or the sale, he immediately responded. In addition to my phenomenal experience in working with him, the agent for the buyer of my father’s house also informed me that it was truly a pleasure working with Mr. Bernasconi. Should I ever need a real estate agent in the future, I will immediately contact Brian Bernasconi to represent me. You can be sure that I will be recommending him to all my friends and family.
