was extremely helpful in purchasing my first home. As stressful as it
is to be a first time homeowner, Brian eased my anxiety and nervousness
through his knowledge and hard work during the whole process. Brian was
very responsive to my questions and concerns and worked extremely hard
in resolving any question that I had. I would highly recommend Brian to
anybody who is interested in purchasing property in the city."

was willing to work for us as well as with us to find the best place
for us. These qualities are rare to find. Upon initial meeting, our
agent had multiple appointments lined up. This is scarce in the first
meeting. He was knowledgeable, friendly, a great listener and took note
to our dislikes and like. We were very satisfied with his knowledge. He
had the updated information. In cases where more questions came up, he
promptly performed his research and got back to us with specific
answers. He was very accommodating and put his heart into the search. I
think that made all the difference. Although we were hard to reach,
Brian never lost patience with us.
Before we went to the
negotiation stage, we would do an assessment of our buying power,
comparative sales in the building and points and features to consider at
different points in the negotiation. He was prepared and, when needed,
provided his analysis of the deal. We trusted him and he came through on
a good deal for us.
Brian stuck with us through thick and thin.
He provided us with important relevant information before viewings, he
kept open and honest communication, he was flexible, he was a great and
attentive listener and most importantly he cared about our happiness in
our new place. We were on the market for over 6 months and Brian was
nothing but patient with us. He even came to our closing to provide
moral support! Brian adds the personal touch. Without him we would not be
in our new home and we would not be as happy as we are! Brian makes an
excellent buyers agent and we don't know what we would have done without
Thanks for all that you did for us!"

We used Brian Guzman to buy our condo, and we couldn't be happier with the
process, and service provided. Brian was great throughout, always
accommodating to our schedule, and always looking out for our best
Brian also has a great sense of humor, and knows how to
make feel people comfortable in what can sometimes be a stressful
I have recommended Brian to all my friends and family, and will use him for any future real estate needs. He was great.
I met Brian through my brother, and have been working with him, as my
agent, for about a year now. First, I had him list a small investment
property I had for sale and/or rent. He impressed me from the start with
his dedication and commitment to fulfill my needs. Because the property
was located out in the west suburbs, it was not convenient for me to be
there as much as the place demanded. However, Brian filled that void by
making the trip time and again, until we finally found a tenant that I
was comfortable with.
Because of his work ethic and
professionalism, I decided to have him list my primary home for sale as
well. Although it has not sold yet, Brian continues to stay optimistic.
He keeps me reassured that we are staying within a competitive price
point and are not giving the place away. I would feel comfortable
recommending Brian to anyone needing a real estate agent. He is well
versed in his industry, he keeps the lines of communication open
throughout the whole process, and he will not rest until his clients are
We used Brian Guzman in the purchase of our new home and he was terrific to
work with. Brian was able to work out some difficult situations that we
had encountered along the way (no deal is without its hiccups). He
walked us step by step through every process and kept us informed at
each turn. We are now in our beautiful home and couldn't be happier. I
would recommend Brian to anyone and if we ever decide to move out of our
perfect home I would definitely use Brian again.
I've known Brian for several years, dating back to our years caddying,
in high school, and as Evans Scholars in college. I decided to begin my
condo search with Brian due to the fact that Ive known him for so long,
and I knew that from the beginning, he was only interested in my best
Ever since our very first meeting, Brian was very
professional. His thoroughness and attention to detail helped make the
entire process of purchasing a home extremely easy. Although we were not
planning on purchasing a home until the middle of this summer, we
decided to take some time out early on to check out a few places in
order gauge what exactly we were looking for in a home. A few places
turned into 15. After narrowing down what we wanted, we found the
perfect place during our 15th visit. We decided to go through with the
purchase ahead of the time frame we had planned on, but Brian assisted
us every step of the way. Brian is always available and accessible
nights, weekends, and even after I had my closing. He strives to provide
the best customer service that any real estate agent out there could
provide. Regardless of what we needed, whether it was booking a showing,
providing listings, communicating with the mortgage broker, or dealing
with the developer post-close, Brian was always there and on top of
things. I had many questions throughout the entire process, and in the
rare case that Brian did not know the answer; he was always able to find
it quickly. Brian has been a great friend, but more importantly
throughout this entire process, a great real estate consultant.
Brian thanks for helping us find our first home!
Brian did a phenomenal job as my agent when I purchased my condo. He
was incredibly knowledgeable about the unit, building, and surrounding
area. He was always easy to get a hold of, and clearly cared that I
found the right home at the right price. He put me at ease throughout
the entire process of the purchase, and made it seem like less of a
chore than it actually was. I have no complaints about him as a
professional, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly,
Brian is a great friend and an excellent agent. He considered my wants
and needs when sending me listings. He did not waste my time and only
sent me links that matched my criteria.
Brian is extremely
knowledgeable and professional. He always knows the right questions to
ask. Brian is also very honest. If he does not believe investing in a
particular property would be a wise decision he'll let you know.
I have recommended Brian to numerous friends of mine. Working with Brian will definitely help ease your process.
Brian was very professional and conscientious in every aspect of the
process. He made himself available and kept me informed of all new
listings in the area I was searching. He was patient, he listened to my
expectations, made suggestions, answered my questions, immediately
contacted the sellers agent when I had specific questions on the
property I was considering. Brian provided the professionalism and
quality that made my property search and successful purchase an easy
transition. Thank you! I know you will continue with the same dedication
I've spoken to Brian about my other real
estate property. He will put it on the market for me when I'm ready to
move forward with the sale. I'm confident of his dedication and
professionalism in handling my properties.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Brian. I hired him as my real
estate agent in 2007 and the whole time Brian was very friendly. He made
the whole process of purchasing my first home very enjoyable. He took
the time to explain things to me that I did not understand, being a
first time home buyer. He was patient and through and I was able to put
my trust into Brian to help me with my purchase.
I have and will
continue to recommend Brian to all of my friends and family who are
potential buyers as I know they will be in good hands.
