What can I say. Brian is a friend, but also a professional without comparison. He will care about your move like it is his own. He will listen to you until he understands what you want to achieve, and then with decisiveness, charm and determination will execute a plan. He will give you advice along the way. Listen to it. He was able to guide me and when I did what I was told it all went smoothly. I have known Brian for 7 years now and there is no one else I would trust with the biggest transactions I have ever entered into: selling and buying a home. I have used his services three times now. If you haven’t worked with Brian you don’t know how the Realty business is meant to work.
I can not state this more clearly: Brian is excellent! He has vision, he has insight, he has dedication, and he was always there for us. You can not be in better hands!
From the first time we met with Brian, we were very clear in aligning our goals for the sale of our home. Every conversation thereafter centered on achieving those goals. Brian was also very responsive; he literally picked up the phone EVERY time we called or followed up with a text if unavailable. Selling your home can be a stressful time, and Brian kept a calm demeanor to assist us through the process. For open houses, inspections, staging, etc. Brian was there to ensure every detail was covered. Brian was great to work with and through his knowledge of the area helped us to achieve our goals. I would recommend him to anyone on the Peninsula,
We were very happy with Brian’s handling of the sale of our house. It was not an easy sale, as there were difficulties that developed with the top bid, but Brian displayed a balance of patience and aggressiveness that paid off. He understands the business well and how to get the deal done. On top of that, he was always pleasant to work with and was super responsive whenever we had a question.
I’ve used Brian for 3 transactions and wouldn’t think of using anyone else. Each time, I feel like he has gotten me a great deal, and I’m really glad he is in my corner. He has a keen eye for the current market, and offers great advice so I have confidence when its time to make a decision. He’s also very patient, as a first time home buyer and then a 2nd, he was always happy to answer the million questions I could come up with.
Brian was professional, courteous, intelligent, & friendly. He helped me sell my house during a difficult time in my life, with the least amount of stress. I would definitely contact him for sale, or purchase questions. Of all the realtors I have me the is the most genuine of them all. You will not be disappointed if you choose him.
I was introduced to Brian through a coworker when I was looking for a place to lease. I was so impressed by the way he took care of me and looked out for my interests; there was no doubt to work with him again when I began to look for my first home. As a first time home buyer, man was I indecisive! I wasn’t sure whether to get a house or a condo, or where exactly to buy! Brian was very patient to drive me all over the Bay Area and talk me through the whole process. Whenever I have questions or need help on filling out forms, I could always count on Brian being a phone call away. His service was definitely invaluable in getting the home I wanted on my terms.
Brian helped me find the perfect house for me. I was up against some competition in my price range but he was able to network for me and find something that was not even on the market yet. I knew it was the right one for me.
Brian helped us purchase a home in the Bay Area and was incredibly helpful, responsive, and professional. We were moving from out of state and had to do most of the searching and negotiation either on short visits or remotely. Brian made sure everything went smoothly, and was incredibly well informed on all phases of the process — searching, making an offer, and closing. He consistently exceeded our expectations, one time even spending 3 hours at our future property for a service call. We had a very complicated situation and things would not have gone through as quickly as they did if not for his planning and efforts. I would absolutely recommend Brian to any of my family or friends looking in the Bay Area.
A friend of mine told me that I would have a “tough” time buying home and that I would experience a “nightmare” because she did. She even told me that I should cry and let it all out. My friend would not have experienced a nightmare of buying a home if she knew Brian Ayer. Brian was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, upfront, honest and responsive to my family’s needs. I did not know anything about the entire home buying process and he guided me with ease. He managed the process for me so that I would not have to worry about anything. HE IS A ONE-STOP SHOP! You don’t need to go with anyone else!
Brian Ayer was fantastic! He was professional, knowledgeable, detail oriented, and best of all made it so easy for me! My house sold in less then one week for almost 200,000$ over asking. We broke the price per square feet record , with the buyer and seller happy. He and his associate Travis , handled ALL of the details; painters, landscapers, installation of new kitchen, carpet guys , beautiful staging,and for a great price for me. Selling my house was emotional for me and I can’t thank him enough for making it easy and stress free. Do yourself a favor, hand him the key, and walk away with confidence.
Brian Ayer found us our dream house and sold our condo for 150% more than we paid for it. He’s the most professional person I’ve met in my entire life - a truly knowledgeable, affable, and patient realtor. I would never bother with anyone else.
Brian had both the expertise and drive to get a lot of house opportunities. He’s a great person to work with. He came up with really good advice and became a friend in the process. Highly recommend!
Brian was excellent in not only selling our house, but for the many other things that made it possible – estimating the improvement and other costs accurately; finding the right contractors and getting best prices; managing in a completely hands-free-for-us way the contractors, the stager, appliance acquisition, etc.; referring the movers who provided better service we believe because of the referral (it was great); and referring us to a Sotheby’s agent in Scottsdale, Arizona who was very hard working and patiently and effectively helped us find a really good-fit house in our new community. We have already talked to friends and colleagues about the unique service provided by Brian and our excellent experience as we have briefly outlined above. When we find anyone we know is looking to sell or buy a house, we will be happy to refer them to Brian and his associate, Travis Greco - they make a great team.
We spent a good year looking for a place (we had very specific requirements) and Brian was fantastic the entire time. He knew everything about every neighborhood and was never pushy. Even after we moved in Brian continued to help us by answering questions and making recommendations for services we needed (eg landscaping, pool, etc.) He also helped to sell our previous home in record time.
Brian made finding a place quick and painless. We worked with him for a little over a month before landing a home. As crazy as the Bay Area market is, he never pressured us and always steered us away from risky properties. He was extremely professional, courteous and responsive to our needs. When it came to bidding on a home, he guided us into making an offer that was in the right ballpark of the other bidders and ultimately won us the home. Overall, he alleviated much of the stress in the buying process and I will definitely recommend him to my friends.
Brian was attentive and listened to my requirements, he then efficiently presented the best options to me and demonstrated that he had really heard me. I was impressed with his professionalism and comprehension of my perspective. I would recommend him as an agent to anyone.
Brian Ayer from Sotheby’s International Realty was the perfect realtor who exceeded all of my expectations. Brian’s contact info was given to me by my pastor and friend who had been very pleased and impressed by his services. I couldn’t be happier for having chosen Brian and his assistant Travis as the dynamic duo who delivered on all of their promises: my house was repaired and upgraded in a record time for a lot less money (less expenses) than other realtors’ quotes; I didn’t need to get personally involved with any companies or workers during the repair process as Brian and Travis handled that effectively and professionally almost entirely on their own; I was always given honest advice and honest answers from Brian and Travis, and they truly, sincerely cared about me as a person who was thrown into the selling process without any prior knowledge of the real estate sales and made everything as stress-free as possible. As an added bonus was the high sales price that shattered everyone’s wildest predictions! I will absolutely contact Brian again once I am ready to buy a house, and would hand out his phone number with confidence out to any of my friends or family members who would be interested in buying or selling their properties. Thank you so much for everything, Brian!
Brian is an expert in his field and was very thorough and conscientious throughout the entire process of purchasing our first home. In being a very detailed person, Brian, accounted for every contingency during the searching and negotiation phases and was very open and accessible in his communication throughout the entire process. He made the process of purchasing a new home enjoyable. I highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for a competent Real Estate Agent with the highest of integrity.
