Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness
I had a really complicated move at a complicated time. I was working with Brandon as my realtor for the sale of my first home, and another realtor out of state. Not the mention the lawyers and mortgage people. And it's all during the pandemic.
Of everybody I dealt with in all of my transactions, Brandon was the clearest and most communicative. He understood the market and he used some legitimate psychology. He was ethical and put much more time into explaining paperwork than the other realtors I've worked with before. I didn't have to call him up as ask "why is THIS on here??" because we always walked through it.
I had actually tried to sell my house a year before. Non-pandemic, sellers market, I tried to save a few bucks by going with Redfin. My house languished on the market for months until they basically told me to lower the price or take it off the market.
By contrast, while working with Brandon and his team, I got the house into selling shape (about the same as the previous year), it went on the market, I had four showings on the first day and had an offer over asking that same day. I moved out a month later, when I wanted to.
And he's not pricey. He came in at industry standard rates or lower.
I met him through a friend who'd used him as a buyer. She told me that in a super-hot sellers market, he got the price down AND got the sellers to make some repairs. This was a time when any trash heap in Denver was selling within 20 minutes of going on the market, with competing offers that drove prices up. That's the story that inspired me to hire him, and I have no regrets. I'll keep recommending him to my friends.
