“My husband and I worked with Brian and his wonderful assistant, Suzanne, on our first home purchase. Brian was so patient walking us through the steps and keeping us informed throughout the process. He always had our best interests in mind and was great at advocating on our behalf with the seller’s attorney. Brian is an absolute pro at real estate transactions and we would highly recommend him.”
Suzanne
“Brian was extremely patient with my daughter and most importantly with me. My daughter was 12 when she was hit by a car. I was referred to Brian by a family friend. Thru these three years between the beginning stages and finally a resolution to my daughters case,Brian, has been very careful to not pressure my daughter and basically put her at ease with the process of retelling her story as much as she was able too. While I worked nights I on occasion missed or just forgot to keep some appointments with doctors and so on, so he was also very patient with me. My family would like to thank Brian and the entire staff for a job extremely well done.”
