Testimonials for Brian Rich, MBA, GRI

  • David Schwager

    When Brian Rich introduced himself, explaining his impressive credentials, I was not certain if he would return the calls of a first-time buyer interested in a modest condo. He provided, however, attentive and conscientious service, helping me find a home in just a few days. He was also a skilled negotiator who saved me significantly in price and closing costs. I would recommend Brian to anyone.

  • David C.

    Brian Rich assisted me in my recent purchase of condominium in Irvine. He was very knowledgable about the area, and made himself available to show me several properties. He was able to tailor his selection according to my needs, whether it be rental investment or self-use properties. His repsonsivensss is excellent; cell phone and texting are all valid open channels of communication if you prefer. He is quick to respond to emails and text messages. I look forwards to buying my next OC property with Brian.

  • Jon Korzen

    I chose to work with Brian Rich because of his professionalism, attention to detail and local knowledge. He took the time to find out what MY true needs were and did a great job of valuing the market to insure I wasn't paying more than what the home was worth. What may have impressed me the most was his insight to how the lending side works, as well. Most realtors I had spoken with only knew things about the house and not the myriad of options available to suit my needs. He made what seemed to be a difficult and uncomfortable process, a pleasure. I would highly recommend anyone seeking to purchase a home to contact Mr. Rich, as I'm certain he will make their experience a pleasurable one.

  • Jeff Wilson

    If you are looking for a true professional, look no further. Brian was the best broker I have worked with (and there has been quite a few), especially in terms of understanding what I was looking for, negotiating the best deal for me, and for staying on top of all communications with me and others. In fact, Brian successfully rented out one of my properties to a great tenant and also found a great home for my wife and me to purchase. Brian immediately returned all phone calls and was constantly on top of all aspects of our purchase and tenant lease. He understands real-estate extremely well, and his business acumen was top-notch (I was not surprised when I found out he has an MBA as well). I recommend Brian whole-hardheartedly.

  • Deanna Fischermann

    We knew Brian to be the right agent for us. His attention to the mountain of details and communications required of real estate transactions is impressive. His knowledge of accurate pricing in the market was invaluable in negotiating and finding our perfect home. His winning personality and personal service made the experience incredibly pleasant. Brian has been there for us in finding qualified contractors and service people, and helping us to facilitate appointments and inspections. We highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs. He is a pleasure to work with!

  • Zane Sweet

    Mr. Rich was extremely helpful in our process of identifying a home. He was very knowledgeable about the local market, sale comparables that were relevant to our prospective purchase, area amenities, and was professional. As this is our first home buying experience, we were very impressed with his service - and he even has expertise in financing. We would recommend Brian to anyone in need of a quality realtor.
