The first time I spoke with Brian it was late at night on a weekend and I expected to get his voicemail. Instead, he answered promptly, and despite being on “vacation,” he spoke with me for an extended period of time about my move from out of state into his community. From the outset it was clear that as compared to the several other agents I had spoken with, he was far more knowledgeable, personable, and client-orientated. Those initial impressions have been validated each time my wife and I have interacted with Brian throughout the six plus years since then. Brian far exceeded our expectations and his duties during our first home purchase. He was accommodating with regards to our schedule, receptive to our (my wife’s in particular) very specific search criteria, and professional in how he presented options to us, walked us through the process, and serviced our home buying needs from initial showings through closing. His accuracy (in pricing/offering suggestions, neighborhoods, etc.), dependability, and candor rank among the highest degrees of service I have experienced in decades of business relationships. Consequently, in the years that followed, we turned to Brian for various real estate related needs. He connected us to a vast network of quality, reliable, cost-effective vendors and service providers ranging from cable, to home improvement, to financing. His many years of experience and college marketing background are reflected in his keen business development skills. He illustrates the difference between a veteran professional who understands how to cultivate relationships through performance, trust, and respect (e.g., listening, not imposing his views on us, etc.) and your run-of-the-mill sales person focused more on closing a deal. As we grew beyond our condo and into a single family home, we turned to Brian every step of the way. He provided candid accurate advice concerning the sale of our home. His team worked with us on the purchase of our second home, which was a drawn out process involving exiting a contract after an unsatisfactory inspection report, and ended with the purchase of a superior home in a better location. He also rented our first home, to a well-qualified tenant, in literally days. His hands-on approach made the transactions largely stress free and nearly flawless. Brian combines the old world principles of trust, dependability, and client service, with the modern efficiency and efficacy of technology and fast-paced competitive markets. We have worked with him on several transactions. We have worked with no less than eight of his partners or referred vendors. Not once have we been mislead, overcharged, or disappointed. To the contrary, we have always received what we needed (even when I thought we (read: my wife) were asking a lot) ahead of or at least on schedule in a superior workmanship manner. There are literally dozens if not hundreds of agents to work with for your real estate needs. Some have catchy phrases, others various different gimmicks. Brian has everything you will ever need: responsiveness, understanding, patience, diligence, results, innovative cutting-edge strategies, and a genuine commitment to your satisfaction. There are few chances today to find the perfect balance between cost and service – getting all you want without overpaying – and even fewer chances to find it in a sincerely nice person with whom you can maintain a long-term relationship. Brian Pakulla is that few and far between individual, so I recommend his services with the utmost accolades I can possibly give. He has proven himself to be a calm problem-solver who gets the job done on schedule and the way you want. We would not consider going elsewhere for any of our property related needs. There is not a single person that I have engaged that I would recommend more strongly.
