I’m a true Seattle native, fourth generation and living in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. I graduated from Washington State University with a Business/Marketing degree, obtained my real estate license in 1992, and my brokers license shortly thereafter. In 1995, I made a transition to RE/MAX Northwest where I continue to help clients with perhaps the biggest financial decision of their life.
With over 20 years of experience in selling properties in the greater Seattle area, educating my clients from my advanced designations plays an integral part in my business. Just 4 % of all Realtors in the U.S. can call themselves Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). That’s because just one in 25 has the experience, the commitment, and the hours of advanced training necessary to call themselves a Certified Residential Specialist. It’s one of the highest designations awarded to associates in the real estate industry, and I’m proud to have that designation.
I approach my business differently! I spend my time focusing on your priorities and goals, explaining your Real Estate options, and giving you high quality and trustworthy service you expect … and deserve! I have found the key to my success has been the quality of people that I represent, and their choice to refer me to others based upon the quality of my service.
"I had a great experience working with Brian throughout the entire home buying process. It was my first real estate transaction and I was a little freaked about taking the plunge into home ownership, but he made every step painless without pushing me into anything. It's rare to find someone like Brian willing to help you in the ""retail"" world and not feel like you're being pressured into something. I'm sure I asked a lot of dumb questions, but they were always patiently and promptly answered. I feel like I got a great deal, and wouldn't hesitate a nano-second to recommend Brian" ...from Damon

"Brian was super! Very patient, knowledgeable, and walked me through every step of the home buying process, which is all new to me as a first time home buyer. I would use Brian again and I will certainly be letting everyone who asks me for recommendations to call Brian. We went to the home on several occasions after the offer was accepted but before closing for me to take measurements, check on things, etc. He never said no. He even brought over a housewarming gift which was such a nice touch. Brian, thank you for a job well done!" ...from Paul and Justin

"This summer, we worked with Brian as the listing agent on our home and as the purchasing agent on our new property. The sale of our property went very well, though the process took a month (we, of course, were hoping for a weekend!). Certainly Brian was proactive and extremely creative in the marketing of the house. Everything from brochures, website presentations, and open houses to suggestions about how to best present the property were extremely professional....the best we have ever seen, frankly. His cohorts pale by comparison. The new home purchase was a piece of cake. The ""rate of movement"" was lightning fast. In a very competitive market, Brian aggressively presented our offer and secured a purchase agreement within 12 hours of our viewing the property! Beyond all this, may we add, Brian is at all times pleasant, reassuring, delightful, trustworthy, and tireless. His skills certainly reflect his experience as a real estate professional and his character as a person."...from Scott and Kenn
"Brian was incredibly helpful throughout the process of purchasing my first home. His knowledge and experience in the Seattle area were key to finding the right property for me. I could not have done it without his expertise and guidance! In a competitive market like this one on Capitol Hill, it was easy to get discouraged by lack of inventory at my price range. I was outbid on several offers before we closed the deal, but Brian kept my hopes up and persevered in finding a place that was just what I was looking for. I plan on working with him again, and I would highly recommend Brian to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home in Seattle"...from Ben G.

"Brian was instrumental in getting us our dream house! He was able to work with our insanely busy schedules to look at the house on a Wednesday, schedule an inspection that following Saturday, and work with us on Sunday morning to file the paperwork for the Monday evening reviewing of the offers. Our price was significantly lower than the highest bidders, but we were able to leverage other tactics in order to get the seller to accept the offer that evening. He is the only agent I have heard of to hand-deliver an offer to the seller's agent. I recommend him to all of my friends, and hope that they too, will have a great buying experience in the future!" ... from Sophia and Matt
"Brian was my agent when I was in the market to buy a new home in Seattle many years ago. I was so impressed with his attentiveness and knowledge of the market that we teamed up again to sell the same home recently. There are a lot of agents out there, and I recommend you hire a professional whether buying or selling. And I encourage you to hire Brian if you want a smooth and painfree experience. He knows real estate and how to take care of his clients!" ... from SJWitte
