Testimonials from Happy Northern Virginia Clients
Testimonials from Brian's Loyal Clients
"Brian, your recommendation of locations and areas were on point with what we were looking for and we couldn't have asked for a better experience." Chris Fowler & Jennifer Herrera, October 2007
"We had a great first time homebuying experience. Thanks Brian!" Stephanie & Jeff Briscoe, February 16, 2007
"Dear Brian, Thank you so much for all of your time and effort in helping Sean and I find and close on our first home. We enjoyed working with you and will absolutely recommend you to anyone we know looking for a Realtor." Kathleen Lewis, May 30, 2006
"Brian helped us buy our first home. He is a terrific Realtor! He really listened to what we wanted and was incredibly patient. He never pressured us and always kept us fully informed about a property. Brian works with you to help customize your home buying experience -- this is what sets him apart and why we loved working with him!" Lauren and Jason Gerbsman, March 2006
"Dear Brian, Let me express once again our appreciation for the help you gave us in finding our new home. The daily updates of new houses available was exactly what we were looking for. We used the information to focus in on only those that were of particular interest to us. Then we were able to visit the homes at a time convenient to our schedule on the weekends. Your work with the seller was excellent. We had heard horror stories about closings, but your work made everything both transparent and smooth. Instead of lengthy explanations and haggling over this or that, we sat down, signed the papers and prepared to move -- largely due to the work you had already done. What could be easier than that? Whenever we hear that any of our friends are looking for a new home, it will be our pleasure to send them to you -- indeed, to insist that they see you first." Tom and Marion Moore, October 2005
