Brian Lavery - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Brian has helped us with a number of purchases and sales since 2012.

Just in the past few months he led a terrific sale of our home and the purchase of a new one. The sale was during a time we were all worried about the market and with a challenging buyer. Yet it was all smooth from our perspective. His listing, marketing, staging all led to a great outcome. We found our recent purchase right before we leaving the country on vacation! Yet Brian made sure everything happened across time zones and intermittent availability. Any real estate needs, Brian should be your first stop.

We have used Brian for multiple purchase and sales over the past 10 years.

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Brian was easy to work with and did an excellent job throughout the entire process.

He was very professional yet a lot of fun to work with. He was informative, responsive, and present. Brian was my listing agent for selling my townhouse and I was very impressed with how often he would show up at the house to make sure everything still looked good for potential buyers. His stager did a fantastic job and then Brian added a few personal touches of his own that helped to show the house even better: Fresh flowers, fresh bowl of fruit and some glassy babies too. He asked me to write a list of things I'd miss after I moved away and put that list out for buyers to read which I thought was really cool. The townhouse sold pretty quickly and we got a little over asking price. I would recommend Brian, as a listing agent, to anyone selling a house. He was great to work with!

Brian assisted us with a home purchase in Seattle recently and, simply put, he was amazing.

With his help, we were able to find our house, negotiate a deal we were very happy with and close smoothly & quickly. All along the way, he was very responsive, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He also has been a great resource for help with some improvements we want to do. We would highly recommend Brian.

My family has had the pleasure of working with Brian several times over the past 5 years.

Brian recently helped us to purchase a home and put another on the market. During a time when the market was rapidly changing, Brian showed us his deep understanding of the housing market and lead us every step of the way with honesty and a calming presence. The care he put into preparing and listing our house using up to date technology made all the difference. He even enlisted my young kids as “assistant agents” to make the process easier and less stressful. Brian is extremely personable, well connected, responsive, and a great listener. We refer our friends to Brian every chance we get and feel so lucky to work with him!

Brian helped me buy a condo recently and was amazing throughout the process.

His knowledge of the Seattle market is a great asset to have on your side as a buyer. He helped me get through the whole process and I’m very grateful. If you’re in the market, give him a call ASAP.

Jose Bueras

Brian made our home purchase a breeze.

He was recommended by a relative and he is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He is very knowledgeable of the Seattle market and well respected by other realtors. He was available to show us houses on a short notice. I would definitely recommended Brian for a less stressful, seamless home purchasing experience!

Brian is the definition of a godsend.

His depth of experience and commitment to sell at top dollar sets the bar at a level few real estate professionals can meet. He managed a number of difficult maintenance tasks and sold my home during the peak of the Covid pandemic after I had already relocated out of state. His research and approach is direct and to the point and he gets great results. I'm so glad I choose Brian to run my home sale across the finish line, he's a true all star!

Flip Schmidt

Brian is an outstanding real estate agent and I've bought and sold multiple properties with him.

Thanks to is knowledge of the local real estate market and years of experience, the process was smooth and stress free. As a client I always felt supported and that he has my best interest in mind, taking the time to walk thru pros vs. cons of listings and raising questions I wouldn't have thought of. I will definitely use Brian for my next real estate purchase and recommend him to anyone I know exploring the market!

Brian Lavery helped me sell my house this summer.

He was very patient with my time line and so helpful with suggestions in getting the house ready for the market. He was very transparent about all that was going to happen. I trusted him and his experience. I wasn't disappointed! I would recommend Brian to anyone who is planning on selling their house or looking for a new home. He will put you at ease through the whole process. You will be happy that you had Brian on your side!!

Toni McSorley

Brian is the best!

He sold my Mom’s home in 2016, I bought a condo in 2017 and sold my condo in 2022 - all with Brian. He is kind, understanding, helpful and explains everything well. And always there to answer any questions. I would refer anyone to Brian. And if in the future I need a realtor Brian is my first choice!

Mari Gervais

Brian just helped us sell our condo in West Seattle.

The entire process was handled from beginning to end with professionalism and great attention to detail. His knowledge of the Seattle real estate market is unmatched - and it shows through every step of the process. We no longer live in the Seattle area, and the sale couldn’t have gone more smoothly. He kept us up to date through out the entire process of readying the condo, putting it on the market, guiding us through paperwork and signing requirements, all the way through closing. His staging and photography are first class - demonstrating the care and pride he takes with each transaction. Something as stressful as selling a property while living out of state, along with the ever changing market and mortgage conditions, was smooth and flawless with Brian guiding us through the process.

"Brian Lavery's 27 years experience speaks to the success of selling my property. His knowledge of Investment properties was one of the reasons why I chose Brian as my realtor. He dove in 'head first' to help us get this property ready to sell. A total hands-on Realtor. The whole process felt like he was teaching a master class on 'How to Successfully Sell a Home'! I learned so much about the process which helped us understand what was happening at each step of the way. Absolutely I will recommend his service to anyone that is looking for a top-notch professional."

"We never thought we had a shot at breaking into Seattle’s insane housing market in the area of town we wanted to live in. But Brian knows this place inside and out and helped us buy a gorgeous townhome in a great area. He was super responsive and flexible, there for us every step of the way through the process. He is incredibly knowledgeable and gave great advice. We are forever grateful for his help and would recommend him to anyone who needs a Seattle real estate expert to navigate them home."

"Brian is hands down the most trusting and reliable agent. I have bought and sold two homes with Brian, and each time his professionalism and wisdom has exceeded my expectations. I completely trusted his recommendations and he not only guided me through the process in an extremely kind manner, but was able to get me top dollar on the sale of my home. Selling your home can be a very emotional time, and it was of great comfort to have such a caring agent who had only my best interest at heart."

Thank you for making our home dreams come true. We can't wait to show our friends the lovely home you've found us."

"Can't say enough good things about Brian..... 5 stars! We were introduced to Brian through a friend who has worked with him for over 20 years. As first time home buyers, Brian really took the time to explain what to expect and how to best position ourselves for a successful offer. He quickly became close to the family, involving our young kids to make the process as fun as possible. Every step of the way, Brian was accessible, knowledgeable, and supportive. Brian works with a small amount of clients at a time and you can tell by how much attention you receive. I was impressed with how many connections Brian had and most importantly he helped us buy our home in our top choice neighborhood within our price range. A reality I never thought possible. We feel so lucky to have had Brian on our side!"

"Brian was everything we could have wished for in a real estate agent and more. He listened well to what we were looking for in a home, was always several steps ahead so that we could move forward swiftly, offered us expectations that aligned well with our experience, and helped us stay positive and rational as we searched for our first home. For instance, Brian helped us keep our eye on the prize when we were considering making an offer on a unit that we knew we didn't really want - he wanted us to be happy as opposed to helping us just buy any home. Another great example that shows his character and hard work is how hard Brian worked on the offer process that ultimately resulted in our home purchase. We had a lot of back and forth for around a week, and Brian communicated very well with my partner and me as well as the listing agent. He kept the pace going and helped us troubleshoot bumps we experienced in the process. I would highly, highly recommend Brian!"

"Brian recently sold my condo in Ballard for me. I was lucky to see his work before when he also sold my neighbors' unit. Brian is simply amazing. He knows exactly what to do and what I really liked is he is competitive with himself...he wants to get the best price and gets it. I wish I had more places to sell so I could still work with Brian. Hire him and relax all the way to your closing."

"I needed to sell my condo in Federal Way. This condo had been a bad luck charm hanging around my neck from the very beginning. First the market collapse, then values sank, and then was hit with a major assessment. The odds of selling it were getting harder and harder. I had a bad experience with another agent last year when I tried to sell it and was beginning to lose hope when it wasn’t selling, and no offers came in. I was then referred to Brian by a coworker, and called him to see if he could help me. From that point, he was working to assist me, even though I didn’t end up putting it on the market until 6months later. But when the time was near, he contacted me to check in(as opposed to me having to chase him down or remind him of my situation), he was on top of things. That left me feeling confident that my place could be sold and soon. We listed my condo on March 12th and I had a deal 6 days later. Everything fell into place and sold without any obstacles. I got $7,000 over asking which greatly helped me at closing. In fact, the sale of my condo was really the only bright moment the entire time I owned it. Throughout the entire process, Brian made the sale so easy. It was an impossible situation made simple. If you’re looking to sell or buy, I strongly recommend Brian to represent you. I will definitely do business with Brian in the future."
