Being in a professional service field myself, my standards for client service are exceptionally high and rarely met. Simply put, Bret exceeded those standards. His knowledge of real estate and the intertwining functions and processes are extensive. He really makes you feel like you're his only client. Even though he surpassed my expectations, which could be labeled unfair, my mortgage broker also took note, "You have a really good one. Most agents aren't nearly involved as Bret".
Expertise aside, he was the perfect personality match in what I wanted from my agent. Has a very calming attitude and makes himself available for opinions/thoughts - but is never pushy. He does a great job of pointing out simple, but important things to consider - items a first time homebuyer would likely miss. It is evident from the beginning that he determines what you are looking for/wanting in both the house and agent, then executes flawlessly.
