“My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Brian Johnson on the sale of our Portland condo. Brian is a true professional and a joy to work with. From beginning to end, he was responsive, courteous, and knowledgeable. And the best part -- we sold the condo for more than full price within 24-hours of listing!” - DEBI

A Fantastic Experience!!

Working with Brian was a fantastic experience. He helped me understand what I needed to do to make my house ready for market and worked alongside me to get everything prepped. He was very responsive and made the effort to understand where my questions were coming from, gave me all the options available as well as his opinions, and supported the decisions I made. At every point in the process he made me comfortable selling my house. I'd highly recommend working with Brian, and I will again if I get the opportunity. - JIM
