Brian Belefant (our favorite realtor) represented my niece and myself in the purchase of a home in Portland, Oregon in September, 2017.
If you’re thinking of hiring Brian, here are some observations my niece and I had about him:
1. Responsive. He answers the phone, responds to your requests.
2. Even tempered. When problems arise, and they always do, Brian looks for solutions.
3. Knowledgeable. I have 30 years experience in banking. It was nice not to have to educate my real estate agent about the process.
4. Resourceful. We had an issue with our lender and Brian went above and beyond to help solve it. He didn’t, of course, because like I said, I have 30 years experience in banking. But the guy tried. Hard.
5. Patient. He showed us houses numbering in the teens, listened to feedback, and pointed out the pros and cons for each showing.
6. Fun. In a quiet, introverted way.
He’s honest and he works hard. I’m glad we worked with him.
I would refer clients to Brian again in a heartbeat! He is on top of everything and goes completely above and beyond for his clients. He treated my family as if they were his own.
You would not believe how smoothly this deal went (from a client’s perspective).
I am sure Brian is pretty much a miracle worker. This deal was extremely tricky, with multiple sellers, 2 0f the 3 out of state, and on top of that, the house was not financeable when we started.
Not only did he get a great buyer at a price my family was happy with, but he also saw to it that everything was completed so the buyer could get a loan.
In the middle of the deal my uncle, who is one of the owners, had a massive stroke, adding to my mom’s extreme stress during what was already an emotional time, this being the home she grew up in.
Brian worked hard and did a great job marketing the home and fairly quickly negotiated a great price from a buyer that wanted to put the work in and not tear our family home, with all its memories, to the ground.
My mom was realistic and knew what shape the house was in, but Brian knew how important this was to my mom and made it happen!
He took care of absolutely everything and completely minimized the stress on my family.
Brian, thank you for going above and beyond and taking such good care of my family and my mom’s family home.
I just wanted to say how amazing and wonderful you were throughout our home buying process. Every little detail you had covered …it was the best. Doing something new like this for us was so daunting, but having you as a guide really made it feel like something as easy as breathing. I know I typically have a pretty flat affect, so I just wanted to let you know that we are insanely happy, and grateful, and feel like the luckiest people that we had you as our realtor. Let me know what type of food is your favorite and I’ll make dinner for all of us as soon as we get settled! Thanks again Brian.
I just want to thank you Brian. What a great experience working with you on the sale of our home in Portland. You were professional and compassionate at the same time. You stepped in whenever we needed you to, making the sale of our beloved home a great experience. Thank you so much.
There’s a reason he calls himself “your favorite realtor.” I know he’s become mine!
Brian was referred to me by a friend after I had to terminate my relationship with the first realtor I had been working with for not taking me as a serious buyer and not following through with putting an offer on my dream home. Brian was meticulous, kind, and helpful through the entire process (I was a first time home buyer). I felt respected, listened to and like I had a true advocate ready to help me get my dream home.
I happily picked up the keys to that home today and that wouldn’t have happened without Brian’s amazing help! He will take great care of you and truly is worthy of being everyone’s favorite realtor!
Lucky for us we met Brittany, of Inhabit, during an open house when we were looking for a condo to purchase. We instantly felt at ease with her and decided to contact her to assist with our search and purchase process. I can’t say enough about how wonderful she is to work with. She is knowledgable, very responsive, patient, and an excellent listener. Additionally, she has a wonderful sense of humor and is a joy to be around–making the whole experience extremely painless and positive. I highly recommend that you have a conversation with Brittany before you decide on a realtor. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
I have nothing but good things to say about Brittany and the Inhabit Portland team. Brittany walked me through my first home buying experience and was helpful at every step. She helped me solidify my idea of what I was looking for, spent as much time as I needed driving around showing me different options, and talking through the pros and cons of each location. I could tell she had my best interest in mind throughout the whole process, and she answered all of my questions promptly, professionally, and helpfully. She is kind, considerate, and knowledgeable. She handled the inspections, walked me through the paperwork, and I never felt she was pushing unnecessary or overpriced options on me. We have kept in touch since the closing date, and she has been a friend to me even after our business was concluded. I would highly recommend (and I have on more than one occasion) her to anyone looking to buy a home.
My husband and I worked with Brittany to find our new home, and she was fantastic. She was always extremely responsive and helpful when we found a home we wanted to view, provided honest and useful feedback and guidance throughout the process, and skillfully helped us navigate writing several offers that enabled us to get our dream home. Brittany is thoughtful and great at listening to the needs of her clients, while also being able to go to bat for them during negotiations. Her expertise was invaluable from beginning to end and we would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new home!
Jessica, you are amazing! Thank you for helping my mother transition to her new home. You were truly a blessing throughout the entire process …we couldn’t have asked for better service and knowledge during this process.
Amanda was a perfect fit for us as first time home-buyers, and navigated the additional challenge of us being from out of state with ease! She put to use her extensive knowledge of the Portland market and clear love of this city to help us narrow down neighborhoods that fit our lifestyle, commutes, and budget. With her exceptional people skills, she deftly gathered what features of a home were important to us so we could make the most of our weekend house-hunting trips to Portland. Amanda worked tremendously hard for us throughout the entire process from touring homes to closing, and we could not be more grateful for her expertise, patience, and enthusiasm. We highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell in the Portland metro area!
