I remember, shortly after graduating from UC Davis, what it was like to buy my first house. I was so thankful I had a Realtor who was extremely knowledgeable of the market, compassionate towards my needs, and equipped with the right tools to protect my family's interest. In today's competitive & ever changing market, having an informed advisor to assist you with making the right decision is priceless!!

I remember, shortly after graduating from UC Davis, what it was like to buy my first house. I was so thankful I had a Realtor who was extremely knowledgeable of the market, compassionate towards my needs, and equipped with the right tools to protect my family's interest. In today's competitive & ever changing market, having an informed advisor to assist you with making the right decision is priceless!!

As a 20 year resident of Sacramento, I am familiar with many of the area's fastest growing and most popular neighborhoods for buying and selling real estate. Having worked as a mortgage professional the last 5 years, I've seen many eligible buyers turned away simply because their real estate agent wasn't informed on the right financing strategies to meet their client's specific needs. What you don't know can be costly! The value and perspective I bring from the mortgage side allows me, as a Realtor, to provide you with more alternatives for purchasing that dream home, acquiring that lucrative investment property, or finding that seller's qualified-buyer. My primary purpose is to work hard for you and to equip you with the most effective tools, strategies, and resources to help you through the entire process. So "Congratulations to You" for making the choice to work with ZipRealty, an A+ rated company with the Better Business Bureau. http://www.bbb.org/greater-san-francisco/business-reviews/real-estate/ziprealty-in-emeryville-ca-44846

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Brian. He responded to all of my questions and, as a first-time home buyer, provided alot of good tips, recommendations and feedback on things I should take into consideration when going through this process. He has a great understanding of the market and the recent changes it's been going through; which, even if it was something I didn't want to hear, I needed to know and understand if I wanted to get into a house! Brian was awesome!

I found Brian on line and I read his reviews from other buyers and for some reason I knew he would be the one helping me find and buy my dream home. I left a message with him letting him know I wanted to meet with him. He called me right back and we talked for about a good 45 mins to 1 hour and at that point I knew he was the one. Brian is most wonderful. The house I am buying is a house he picked out for me. It was not on any of the list he sent to me because he wanted to show me that he knew what I was looking for. It was the very last house we looked at and when I seen this house I knew this would be the home I would love and live a lifetime in...and this was just from the outside of the house. Guess what, I got the house. My faith in Brian came from the very first time I heard his voice and he did not disappoint me at any time. This is my first time buying a house and with Brian on my side I did not feel any worry, pressure, or fear. This man made me feel as if I was his only client and I will always cherish him for that. He was with me from the very beggining to the very end and he knew what he was doing the whole time. I could not have asked for a better agent to represent me. I will thankhim for a very long time to come and I will always invite him into my home. This man was completely professional, knowledgeable, kind, understanding, and the most important thing to me is his patience. I am the type of person who will panic at the drop of a dime, but Brian was so cool and professional that he would talk me off the ledge..lol, by my just hearing his voice letting me know everything was going to be just fine and it was because I am purchasing my dream home and it is ALL becasue of Brian. Thank you Brian and anyone who chooses you as the agent is a really lucky person and I know they will be as happy as I am right now. YOur name will always be the one and only name that leave my lips if someone is looking to buy a home...you will always have my number one vote.
