You want a realtor who can handle any of your real estate needs? Dream Big is your answer. Brian Bean and Matt Carmean walked us through a difficult short sale with confidence and extreme knowledge of the process. They were always available if we had any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Dream Big Real Estate and will definitely use them again for our real estate needs! Good job guys!

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Brian Bean and the amazing team at Dream Big Real Estate. We were struggling with the very challenging and complex short sale process for over a year finding no success with another agent. We then turned to Brian and the team at Dream Big and within a few short months, our property was sold. Dream Big's professionalism was very impressive as they expertly handled every detail of our very complicated and stressful transaction. Brian's expertise in all things real estate and dedication to getting the job done are what made the difference. It was a delight working with folks with such strong work ethic and the knowledge to just get the job done! We look forward to working with Brian and Dream Big again and would highly recommend their services without hesitation.

I hired Brian Bean to sell my mother's home that is in probate... it was imperative I find someone who was extremely knowledgeable in marketing and in selling, along with all the nuances of selling a home in probate ... I found the perfect person in Brian... I was a CA real estate broker for 20 years, now living out of state so I needed to trust someone with confidence and expertise to do the job... Brian was the man!!! if it wasn't for him in court certain particulars to the judge it could have gone badly and prolonged the process considerably, thank u Brian for saving the day!!! needless to say I have dealt with lots of agents in my day and u r up there with the best... if u r looking for someone who is great at what they do call Brain for any of u'r real estate needs...

My husband and I called Brian Bean to help us with short-selling a rental house. We had read Brian's articles in the Press Enterprise and were impressed with the expert advice he shared. From our first phone conversation through day the final papers were signed Brian and his team were there for us. We plan to use Dream Big Reality for all of our Real Estate needs from now on. We highly recommend Brian and Dream Big!

I met Brian a few years ago and would not consider doing a transaction without him. The level of commitment is unparalleled and the professionalism refreshing. Brian, Tim and their team are very knowledgeable, proficient and honest to a fault. Most agents consider me difficult because I am involved (often they were not)... Brian makes me so at ease because he keeps us current with quick messages on progress and changes. We never need to "get involved" to keep things on track. The service is awesome! In the last 36 years I have been involved in many Real Estate transactions, completed a half dozen without an agent and currently have close friends and family that are Realtors. For the past few years and moving forward for all that I do I have a personal agent; Brian Bean - Dream Big Real Estate.

My wife and I have been involved in six realestate transactions, with the most recent taking place with Dream Big. Although we have had good realtors assist us with previous purchases and sales, the team at Dream Big contributed to our latest sale being the least stressful realestate transaction we have ever experienced. Tim Hardin took the lead in advocating and facilitating the process; however, we also worked with Brian, Jennifer, and Leslie. Throughout the sale of our house, we experienced multiple changes in our personal lives and realestate needs. The Dream Big team was flexible, and welcomed the changes, even though it impacted their bottom line. Their focus throughout the translation revolved around our needs, even when it created more work on their end. They truly practice a "no pressure" approach, with a "it's in God's hands" attitude.
We are continuing to work with Tim, Brian, Jennifer and the rest of the Dream Big team as we look for our next home. They continue to demonstrate flexibility, and a willingness to find the home that meets our unique needs. We find that they continue to advocate for us, by watching the market and showing us homes, researching any house we are interested in, comparing and validating the value to the current market, and ensuring that the price is fair. We are very particular about what we want, and haven't been the easiest seller/buyer to deal with. However, Dream Big has surpassed our expectations of customer care and service.
Thank you Tim, Brian, Jennifer and the rest of the team! You guys are great!

We recently used Dream Big Real estate (Tim Hardin as our agent) to sell our current home as well as buy our next home. Tim, did a first rate job helping us to get the best possible price on the sale of our home. Tim and his team were very organized and made the entire process very smooth and painless. When we started searching for our next home, Tim sat down with my wife and I and made sure he fully understood what we were looking for in our next home. He also did a great job of setting realistic expectations for our search process and found us the right home in the area we wanted. We were extremely pleased with Tim and his team over at Dream Big and I would recommend them to anyone.

Tim was so helpful and informative as I sold my house. There was an Open House within a week of meeting with me. He was the best. I highly recommend him. I will use them again. Thank you
