BRIAN IS A RARITY IN THE REAL ESTATE MARKET

Brian has helped us purchase two homes in the past 7 years. Our experience working with him on both purchases has been nothing but excellent. Brian is a rarity in the real estate market; he brings experience, commitment, and deft to the deal-making process. He also has a construction background; he can quickly spot red flags in property inspection reports and can also provide good ballpark estimates for required renovation work after buying.

Our first purchase was a townhouse in West San Jose in 2012. We were first-time buyers and six months late into the bidding frenzy. After losing a few bids, we had gotten a bit desperate and were willing to pay a lot more for the townhouse. But Brian correctly judged the market situation and asked us to hold our horses on the bidding process. And he was right on; we paid only 4% over the asking price.

Our second purchase, this year, was in Saratoga. Brian gave very good estimates on the amount of work we would have had to get done on the first two properties we had gotten interested in. That helped us view the asking price from the right perspective and we decided not to proceed further. For our final purchase, Brian handled the extended negotiations, drawn out over several days, very well. He made sure we didn’t come across as over-enthusiastic in our first bid and made sure the seller understood the “pain” we were going through as we raised our bid. In the end, we were able to get the house below the seller’s expectations.

Now, here is the interesting part. Brian was on vacation for part of the time the negotiations happened and we didn’t even know about it until it was time for him to take the flight back. We communicated with him and he with the seller’s agent as if he was in office. And he made sure that his partner, Thao, covered for him while he was offline on the flight. This speaks to his availability and commitment as a real estate agent.
