Before earning his real estate license, Brian enjoyed a rewarding and successful career in the wine industry. Working for both distributors and importers, he sharpened his communication and customer service skills. But born into a local real estate family, his transition to being a broker was a natural fit. Two decades later, he is as impassioned as ever. Always sensitive to his clients’ needs and their best interests, Brian is as thoughtful as he is experienced. A sharp negotiator, a trusted advisor and a stalwart advocate, he is always available to his clients – working tirelessly to achieve their goals. It’s no wonder that over the years, Brian has built so many close, strong and enduring relationships with his clients and associates.
Raised in the western suburbs and a city resident for more than 20 years, Brian has a deeply personal understanding of Chicago’s distinct urban neighborhoods and the diversity of its surrounding communities. He loves the city he calls home and never tires of exploring its many unique offerings and activities.
Brian was fantastic - first of he spent time with our family and understood what we were looking for - and proposed a set of properties that met our needs. He showed a variety of properties and helped us understand the nuances of each one of them and helped us narrow the list. Then he helped us to revisit and choose the right one. Afterwards, Brian was very helpful in constructing an offer and his keen knowledge of the market helped us zero in on the right price. He did not stop there but continued to work through the closing process as well some work we wanted to perform on the house. I would recommend Brian in a heartbeat.
I cannot say enough great things about Brian. As a first time homebuyer I did not know what to expect through the purchase process. Brian took the time to explain real estate and finance concepts during our search and offer phases. When there were unique issues associated with my deal he navigated the situation skillfully and ultimately is the reason I was able to close.
As a first time homebuyer we felt clueless about the whole homebuying process. Brian was very patient and helped us understand each step as we went through them. He was good with helping us negotiate and also honest with his opinions based on his professional experiences. Brian also took the opportunity to understand our needs and wants in a home. We were grateful to have his assistance as he helped us find our perfect first home.
Brian Caron is the best realtor with whom I had the pleasure to work. His attention to details and personal touch will make the often stressful home purchasing experience smooth and easy. Highly recommended!
Brian is very professional. He has a very good eye for detail, as well as a very strong understanding of the buying ans selling process. We also were impressed with the team Brian works with, Lawyer, Inspector, Lender, etc. They were very helpful and professional, experts in their respective fields. Overall, a very good experience! We will now have Brian sell our home for us.
Brian was amazing! Not the type of realtor that lists the property and hopes for the best, he actually had a strategy to move the building quickly which worked! We had an offer that was beyond what we had hoped for. He was diligent and on top of all details throughout the process. I will definitely recommend him, we are already planning our next transaction with him :)
I cannot say enough great things about Brian! This was my first time purchasing a home, and he went above and beyond throughout the entire process. Brian guided me through the search by showing me a variety of homes in different neighborhoods, so I was able to narrow down the type and location of the home I wanted. We discussed each home we viewed, and he was able to provide valuable feedback about the pricing and potential pros/cons. He was easy to communicate with and was very responsive via phone calls, texts, and emails. I am now living in a home I love thanks to Brian's hard work and expertise!
Brian is simply the best in his field as far as I’m concerned and it was a pleasure to work with him during one of life’s more stressful events. I wish I could give him 10 stars. Trying to find a good realtor isn’t the easiest thing to do. I asked friends and neighbors for recommendations and most of them were lukewarm, except for my neighbors who had used Brian for their recent house purchase and gave him high praise. That was enough for me to make a call and meet Brian. He spent a lot of time answering my questions and really checking out the house and I knew he was the person I needed. Brian knows the business forwards and backwards and inside out. He was proactive in every way from the first email/text to the last. My house was unique to price but Brian, with his experience and insight, priced my home right and hit the nail on the head. I was very happy with the outcome of my sale. Brian is a decent, level-headed, wise, hardworking, and honorable guy who I felt always had my best interests at heart. Honestly, I can't say enough good things about him. I’ll be forever grateful to Brian for getting me through this process with all my cylinders still intact. :). And, he’s really a genuinely good guy who treated everyone he came in contact with with the utmost respect. Thank you, Brian.
Brian is very proactive and responsive. He anticipates questions and needs and offers a point of view for how to address, without being too pushy about his point of view. We have worked with him on 3 properties now, and have had a consistent, high quality experience each time.
Brian is a consummate professional who helped me come up with the right strategy to sell my property and maximize the sales price. He pays very close attention to detail and there's no task too small or too large that he won't handle. You will be in great hands trusting your real estate needs to this very dedicated realtor.
Brian is great to work with - a hard worker who does solid research, he is always two steps ahead of the process. Having worked with Brian twice now (first to purchase and then to sell), I can't say enough good things about him! I needed some education about the process and he was always kind enough to give me the information I needed. He's a true professional.
Brian helped us in buying our first home. He was there from beginning to the end of the process. He makes sure that his clients get the information they should know and he won’t let his clients be caught in a bad deal. He is a very well experienced realtor. He answers all our questions and he is very good at his job. The process of buying a home was easy because of his guidance. He and his team did a great job! Fast and easy, that’s how we felt in buying the house. Thanks a lot! We will definitely recommend him.
I would recommend Brian to my closest friends and my family. I truly believe that we wouldn’t have succeeded with landing the home of our dreams if it weren’t for him. He was persistent but not overbearing – the right mix when we had busy lives but were also in the process of finding a home. He is very experienced and thoughtful when walking through properties. He will go above and beyond to ensure you get the information you need and feel comfortable buying a home.
Very patient and takes an interest in where you want to live and what you want out of it. He took the time to find a place I would love and did not seem to be in it for just a quick commission check.
Brian was an absolute champion for us in the homebuying process! My fiancee and I were first time homebuyers, and Brian took extra time and care to make sure we were well informed and fully comfortable in the process. I especially appreciated that he would always present information and facts and let us draw our own conclusions--despite our lack of knowledge/experience he never made us feel dumb. And when we asked for his opinion he was always candid and drew from his considerable experience. Throughout every step of the process Brian showed that he genuinely cared about creating the best possible outcome for us. And we couldn't be happier with the new home he helped us find!
Brian was my real estate agent for the sale of my condo downtown. His insight and help were invaluable in getting my place ready to list, helping me keep my costs low in preparing my condo to sell. His counsel in listing and showing my condo was right on target and helping me get a good price for the unit in the uncertainty and general difficulty because of COVID-19 was a great accomplishment.
Brian came into our life when my spouse and I, as first-time buyers, were truly despairing. We had just been burned by our experience trying to buy a home with a previous broker and Brian was recommended by our attorney, who must have taken pity on us being so far out of our depth. But from our very first conversation with Brian, he was professional, empathetic and incredibly knowledgeable, not just of the nuts and bolts of the home buying process but of the very experience of us putting our faith in another human being to help us make such a major life choice. Long story short, he was the best possible guide we could have had on this journey. He was always responsive, superbly knowledgeable about homes and home inspections and very attuned to neighborhoods and what value they could deliver. When we put in an offer, Brian negotiated a brand new roof and appliances, making our future home even more move-in ready than we could have imagined. That he did this just as the pandemic was hitting the US was all the more impressive. Thanks to Brian, we now have a home and shelter and we are very vocal about recommending him to any of our friends looking to buy. This man really did make our dreams come true.
Brian was absolutely amazing to work with. A champion for his clients and simply not after the dollar. Would definitely recommend him without hesitation.
Brian is an experienced Realtor and extremely knowledgeable about the home buying process. He is personable with a great sense of humor and excellent level of professionalism. He is readily available for questions and to help clarify much of the new jargon and steps in this process. I highly recommend Brian to assist you with your home buying experience.
Brian was very helpful and patient. We were first time home buyers and wanted something perfect for us. Brian stuck with us for almost a year. We've seen so many listing all of Chicago and he was still so patient and was always so honest about the property value and what he thought we should offer but he never wanted to influence our decision and made sure we had enough time to truly think about our decision. If you want someone who is honest, patient, and willing to fight/negotiate for you, Brian is definitely the right person for the job. You won't be disappointed.
Brian Caron is an incredible realtor with great knowledge and insight of the market. We were out of state buyers and he guided us through the process in every way. We could not be more pleased with his knowledge service and attention to detail--we thank Brian immensely.
Brian is an incredible agent for anyone who is looking for a new place to call home. We bought our home in May 2021 living in Salt Lake City. Brian was excellent and trustworthy. He told us what homes he thought would be good for long term resale, had acceptable overall condition, appropriate neighborhoods, and best fit for our needs. Being that we couldn't be in person for walkthroughs we had to facetime Brian and he would take us through the home pointing out any problems, upkeep needing done, and explaining the home in its entirety. We had to completely trust him because we weren't there to see for ourselves. However, the home we ended up in was perfect and we felt comfortable putting a deposit down before seeing the place in person. We were able to quickly fly out meet up with Brian and see the home we now live in. Everything he said over facetime was accurate and the home really is wonderful. Don't wait to contact Brian and bring him on as your realtor. He does a great job, knows the process to a point, and is a very honest and professional realtor.
Brian did an outstanding job, always available, made the process smooth, clear and easy to understand. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy a home. I will definitely be giving him a call for our next purchase.
Brian is thorough on details. Very involved and personable. He was a wonderful partner in finding us the right home.
Brian was very helpful throughout the process. Easy to communicate with and find the home we were looking for. I would strongly recommend him for a positive experience.
My family and I could not be happier with our experience working with Brian! From beginning to end Brian was reliable, responsive, accurate, and punctual. Brian not only provided us with excellent customer service, he was very knowledgeable of each property and awareness of key features or possible repairs they may need. He was also able to stay within our guidelines and family needs. We're very fortunate to have Brian be apart of our journey!
Brian is in an amazing and outstanding realtor who provides excellent customer service!! He was very knowledgeable of each property we visited plus provided insight on possible repairs that the property might appear (occur) in the short or long run. In all honesty, having Brian in our corner was extremely helpful and made the whole home buying super smooth! We 100% recommend Brian and will definitely be coming back to him for when purchase the next house Brian - thank you for all that you do. We were truly blessed. Thank you!
We have bought and sold several houses with different agents, Brian is the best by far. He is outstanding in his knowledge and responsiveness. He is also very generous with his time. We never feel that Brian is selling anything to us-instead it is clear his only priority is to get us exactly what we want and need. Brian is the best.
He was a great agent! Always accessible to answer my questions and give advice. Buying a home is a big deal, he is the agent you want at your side.
I could not be more satisfied with Brian Caron’s services. 1. He did his homework. Did a significant amount of research to ensure we priced it right 2. He was communicative through the whole process 3. He made a difference in getting us more than the asking price. This would not have happened without his experience. 4. It was his attention to details that helped the negotiation process. Bottom Line-He is good at what he does - Best decision I made.
