Brian Brak is an excellent agent. He is knowledgeable about much more than any other agent I have dealt with in the past for the three closings I had over many years. Brian brings his construction expertise in addition to his years of real estate experience to his sales. He was able to carefully recommend the right property to buy that fit with my specific parameters in addition to assessing the condition of the building to ensure that I was looking at properties that would hold up structurally and that would not necessarily require a large financial commitment for years to come. This is important in smaller buildings that do not hold a large reserve and Brian knew how important this was to me based on my last purchase and the high assessments I had been paying. In addition, his team made it an extremely easy process for me as every person he trusts to help complete the sale on my behalf was professional, priced fairly despite their exceptional expertise, very knowledgeable and helpful. When it came to my sale, Brian was careful to listen to my potential buyers and answer all questions carefully from the "buying" broker as to work diligently to complete the sale and work towards closing. Brian truly listens to all parties involved and points out details that will benefit both parties throughout the process. This was all done with the pulse of the market and his great knowledge always affecting his targeted responses. He followed the market in addition to following the pulse of the high rise building from where I was selling. Brian is truly an exemplary agent able to demonstrate a stronger skill set than any other agent I have ever dealt with on both my sale and my buy. He was able to handle any situation with complete success. I would hire Brian again in the future to handle my business over any other agent!
Brian was great to work with. He set up showings quickly and it was a pleasure working with him. I'm happy with my new condo!
Brian was extremely responsive to all my needs and questions throughout a somewhat frustrating short sale process (for us both!). Brian is very knowledgeable about the Chicago market and I trusted his advice. Even though mine was a small deal, I felt just as valuable as any large client. He went above and beyond to get me a wonderful property and a good deal. I would highly recommend Brian.
Brian is the epitomy of professionalism. He made my home buying process a breeze. This was a first time home buying experience and i could not of imagined a smoother process. Brians knowledge and industry experience is hands down his greatest assest. I was comfortable the entire time from meeting, to showings, to the closing. He was always there when i needed him at any step in the buying process. I have and will continue to recommend Brian to anyone i know looking to purchase a home. He is an incredible asset to any organization he is working for. Hands down the best realtor i have ever worked with.
