Brian is known for being service-oriented, straightforward, polite, and easy to work with. Brian says, "I have to give a lot of credit to my family. My dad was a career real estate agent and developer, my mom retired as a career school teacher (Art Teacher) and interior decorator, and my wife also as a full-time real estate agent with a background in HR. I feel like I can use my experience as a real estate professional (exclusively for over 20 years) with creativity from my upbringing, and dedication that my wife has helped build as a family business to help my clients get on a fast track and position them to take on fewer risks. Real Estate for me and my family is definitely a lifestyle that we love and have committed ourselves to. At the end of the day, I'm here to assist anyone that needs my help and to treat everyone equally. It doesn't matter if it is a million-dollar home or a ten-thousand-dollar lot. The importance of that transaction usually remains constant...no matter how much money is involved."
