I am a REALTOR® - Real Estate is my PROFESSION!

THE REALTOR® DIFFERENCE

When you're looking for help buying or selling property, it's important to remember that the terms "real estate agent" and "Realtor®" are NOT synonymous. Read More Here

Realtors® can provide extra level of education & service, and to be a Realtor® you must be a member of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), The Voice for Real Estate® and the world's largest professional association. Founded in 1908, NAR has grown from its original nucleus of 120 to today's over 1 Million members.

The National Association of Realtors® has earned a strong reputation for actively championing private property rights and working to make home ownership affordable and accessible. Realtor® members are monitored at local board levels and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice founded on the principle of providing fair and honest service to all consumers.

Brian's Service Philosophy

Each person and each Real Estate transaction are unique, so you need a professional who provides you with personal, tailored & individualized service, rather than the cookie cutter solutions and gimmicks provided by many real estate services.

"I strive to treat my clients as I would wish to be treated myself. I believe in serving as a consultant, educating and keeping my clients informed rather than the "old ways" Realtors of keeping what they do shrouded in mystery...because I believe an educated client who knows what's involved with their transaction values what I do for them as well as the expertise, education and professionalism with which I do it."

"As a professional with a reputation for excellence in the fields I work in, I am dedicated to providing the best personal service available while breaking new ground, utilizing new technology and new methods to make your experience the very best."

Because the real estate industry is becoming more sophisticated and challenging every day, you need a professional that understands the industry with the education & experience to stay ahead of the game and position you for success.
