What makes Brett different from other real estate agents? His background and experience is one area. Through many years of being selected for and performing well in increasingly demanding areas of responsibility, Brett learned just how critically important it was to be trusted by others and that trust had to be earned through actions and not words. Brett takes this same approach to providing real estate services to his clients.
Here is one recent example. A client called him up just before Christmas last year and said that he was interested in purchasing a cottage on a waterfront property in the northern part of Vancouver Island. His clients informed Brett that they had been in conversation with the listing agent on the property and that he was ready to sell it to them at a good price. Brett asked them to wait before working with him and he explained how the new real estate law did not allow them to be properly represented by the other agency because of the ban in dual agency in the province by the government. They decided to give Brett an opportunity to show why he was correct. Brett worked diligently for weeks getting as much information as he could about the property and got to together with his clients just before Christmas. At the end of his presentation Brett recommended that they NOT buy the property because of a number of issues he had discovered and because it would be a bad investment for them based on local recent sales. They agreed with his assessment and recommendation and thanked him for helping them avoid a major financial mistake. Brett received nothing in compensation for his time and expenses other than the knowledge that he did the right thing for his clients.
Brett understands that trust and confidence must be earned and he aims to build and earn this with each of the clients he helps in the Comox Valley real estate market. Brett has personally moved 18 times across North America so he understands the relocation process well and he has developed and maintains a focused local market knowledge that he uses for the benefit of his real estate clients.
