We met Brandon recently from our initial home search inquiry on Balboa Island. From the get go, he was very helpful and knolwedable, but very patient. We aren’t entirely sure what we are looking for, but he’s been patient, and very helpful. We look forward to having him sell our home as we find the  right place to retire.

Showed home in 2018 in Balboa Island, Newport Beach, CA 92662.

We met Brandon at an open house at his listing in Newport and immediately felt comfortable working with him to find the right home. This isn’t nearly our first purchase, but, we’ve never been thrilled with our former agents. We haven’t located the right home yet, but we know with Brandon and his  teams help, we will find it soon! We are looking forward to closing on that perfect home.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________Brandon is quite professional and was very committed and determined to find us a condo close to our son in Orange County. After four unsuccessful years or house searches with other realtors, Brandon found us what we wanted in a great area in only three weeks. Redfin in lucky to have such a fine person helping those folks like us. We thank him for the excellent job he did.
