As the family decision maker for the sale of my mother’s house, I felt so much pressure in finding the right real estate company that the family felt comfortable with and would research our area (an up-coming area in L.A.) I met with Monica Arteaga (John Aaroe Group) and explained our compassion for the house that we had lived in for 60 years. Monica introduced me to her associate, BRANDON ROAD. Brandon showed compassion, educated us on preparing for the sale and presented a timeline. We concurred with our needs and wants regarding the sale of the house and selected Brandon to represent us as our selling agent. Brandon put me at ease with his suggestions/advice, expertise in social media and preparing for a smooth escrow. House was put on market on a Thursday and by Monday we had 15 offers (10 over-asking price). Escrow closed in 17 days. We will definitely send him referrals. Brandon, can’t thank you enough.
Brandon is a professional! We listed our San Marino home through him and within one week we had multiple offers. Brandon handled all aspects of the transaction diligently and professionally. We had certain criteria we needed met on the sale of this property and Brandon was able to negotiate all of those criteria, we did not have to settle for less! We highly recommend Brandon Road for your real estate needs!

Brandon is the best!!! He came highly recommended by our trusted friends and we are now the ones telling everyone that if you’re looking to buy and/or sell in Pasadena, Brandon is your guy! We had dreamed of buying a house but didn’t think we’d ever be able to sell our “underwater” condo. We were intimidated by the process of buying/selling but Brandon patiently held our hand through every step and always made sure we were comfortable and informed. He helped us figure out when the time was right to sell and, with his guidance, our condo sold immediately! When it came time to buy a new house Brandon carefully considered our budget and our wish-list and never pressured us to go outside our comfort zone. At open houses everyone knew Brandon and it’s clear that he is highly respected and admired in his field. When we finally found the perfect house Brandon pulled out all the stops and we got it! We later found out that the sellers had picked us over higher bidders simply because they were impressed by Brandon and his professional presentation. No joke! But it didn’t end there… Brandon took charge of the entire escrow process and made sure that we got everything we were promised. At every step Brandon went above and beyond our expectations. He was available 24/7 and always made us feel that we came first. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and we owe it all to Brandon!

Brandon was an excellent realtor to work with. After about 6 months of sitting on the market with no offers in sight we brought Brandon on to help sell the property. With his knowledge of the Pasadena market and great work ethic, Brandon was able to pull in more offers in 3 months than I had seen in the previous 6 months! Brandon is extremely responsive and strives to keep his clients in the loop with activities pertaining to the house and the market in general. I would highly recommend using Brandon for selling properties in the Pasadena area!!!

Excellent experience working with Brandon. I have never really had a great experience working with a realtor, they have all been mediocre at best. Working with Brandon exceeded all of my expectations; some highlights of my experience are as follows: 1) Brandon does not come across as a salesmen but instead a dedicated partner in the house hunt. Seems obvious but you would be surprised how many other agents missed this mark. 2) He has a keen ability to listen to your wants and come up with properties that capture the essence of what you are looking for. This resulted in a high percentage of properties we looked at being “contenders.” 3) Negotiating and the offer process felt honest, with the main purpose to get my fiancé and I a great deal. 4) He is a pleasant, friendly guy to be around. A person you would want to be friends with.
I have recommended Brandon to several of my friends and will continue to do so whenever I hear of someone looking for a property in the area. Well done Brandon, thank you!

Thank you so very much for the superior work you did selling my mother’s home. Starting from the beginning, you listened to my request to list the house at a realistic selling price as I did not want to be involved in a bidding process. Your suggested selling price proved to be correct as shown by the legitimate offers which came in at, near, and somewhat above the asking price. While I have sold a numbers of homes, selling one as Trustee for another person’s Trust was a new experience for me. It added a feeling of more responsibility and also necessitated bringing an attorney into the process. You guided me through the paperwork and made it appear easy. Selling an unoccupied house which needed work was also something new for me. You made a number of suggestions which helped me to prepare the house for showing. Living at a distance also presented its own problems. You took on the task of meeting with the inspectors and repairman. You even watered the lawn when I was unable to do so. While I believe there is a certain amount of luck involved in selling a house, there are always problems and situations which have to be dealt with. Whatever those were in my case, you handled them professionally, efficiently and effectively. Each seller or buyer has his or her own needs. You listened to mine and tailored your efforts to them. I appreciate all the work you did for me and would be very pleased to recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home.

It is with great pleasure that my wife and I write this letter of recommendation for real estate agent, Brandon Road. We have know Brandon for over 2 years. In 2012, we hired Brandon for the purchase of our house in La Canada and were so impressed by his professionalism. From the beginning we experienced top-notch realty expertise. Our escrow went smoothly and we therefore highly recommend Brandon for any real estate need.

Brandon has been our real estate agent for almost a decade. We first met Brandon when we were looking for a first home to buy. He showed us many, many places until we found one that we liked. He guided us on all the steps of buying the house. Since then we have used his services for all our real estate needs. Brandon is friendly and has extensive experience with real estate in Southern California. It is always a pleasure to work with Brandon. If you are looking for a knowledgeable real agent you can trust, I strongly recommend Brandon.

When we recently decided to sell our home and look for a larger property, we instantly thought of Brandon. His expertise shines through in every detail of the home buying and selling process. Brandon did an amazing job at marketing our property and got us top dollar!!! Brandon’s negotiation skills are second to none and we couldn’t have had a better experience with anyone else. If your thinking of buying or selling a home,
Brandon Road is the way to go! Thanks Brandon.

After my wife and I experienced 6 long months of offer after offer and rejection after rejection, we came to Brandon battered, broken and questioning if we would ever get the house we wanted. Brandon’s approach was simple, yet confident. He did not promise us the world, he only listened to what we were looking for and drew upon his experience. During our first day of showings with him, he suggested we look at a home that was otherwise off our radar. It was perfect. We entered this offer on our 10th home with the battle scars still fresh from the previous rounds. He again made no promises, but had the knowledge and experience to guide us. It was the first time we felt as though we had the ability to have some control over the bidding process. His guidance led to our offer being accepted over several others. Throughout the inspection and escrow process Brandon was the driving force behind the transaction. He was able to refer us to some great contractors, advise us on the inevitable inspection issue and was always available for questions or to meet us at the home. Through the process of buying our first home, my wife and I learned many valuable lessons. The first of which is surrounding yourself with great AND knowledgeable people. Their reputations and experience will be your best asset. Brandon and his team were the key to our fortunes touring around.

When it came time to sell our house in Pasadena, Brandon was our top choice. What we like the most about Brandon is his positive attitude, in-depth market knowledge and overall professionalism. His strategy on pricing, professional marketing and staging all contributed in maximizing the value of our home. He had us in escrow in less than two weeks with a solid buyer. Closing was fast, although Brandon stayed on the lender to keep the process moving. I was very concerned with potential problems that could arise from the city required occupancy inspection. Brandon guided us through the process with no issues. I couldn’t be happier with the work Brandon did selling our house. He definitely exceeded our expectations. When it’s time to buy or sell again, Brandon will be the guy.
