Brent is everything one looks for in an agent. He helped us buy our home after months of looking. He knew exactly what we wanted/needed probably before we even did, to be honest! We moved to Seattle a year ago and we have a young child so we needed someone like Brent who really knows the area, schools etc. He really was on top of things, sent listings as soon as they became available, always responded promptly to my emails and showed us homes at whatever time/day was convenient for us. We saw so many houses, I was starting to get discouraged and a few times I even thought maybe our “wish list” was unrealistic. But Brent was so cool and calm, he urged me to be patient and NOT to settle....we would find our home, he was sure of it. This kind of confidence can only come with the years of experience he has.
His knowledge and understanding of the real estate market is vast. There was a house or two that my husband and I kind of liked and after looking for so long we wondered if we should make an offer even though it was at the very top of our budget. When we asked Brent what he thought....it was obvious that he had our best interest at heart when he’d say something like, “well I think it’s a bit overpriced.” Perhaps another agent would have just seen a higher commission and told us to go for it. Oh and by the way, he was spot on when he thought a house was overpriced, sure enough we’d see it sold for considerably less than asking price. He also has a great knowledge of house structure/remodeling etc. Ultimately it was his insight that helped us see the potential in the home we made an offer on and purchased. Yes, it needed a little work but even with remodeling we have our home for $100,000 LESS than our initial budget. It suits us perfectly, and we have Brent to thank for it. Our experience with Brent was exceptional, he goes above and beyond what is necessary or expected.
