I Couldn't Have Asked for a Realtor That Was More Informative and Patient

As someone completely unaware of Santa Cruz locations and real estate prices, I couldn't have asked for a realtor that was more informative and patient. Bryan's tours of the area and available property are educational. He was handed some very specific requirements for the purchase, and still he came up with a great selection from which to choose. It's obvious he does his homework and keeps current regarding new listings.

Especially appreciated was his willingness to admit and research an answer if he was on unfamiliar ground instead of guessing. This instills confidence for the buyer when selecting a realtor.

After the close of escrow, Bryan Speights has continued to be helpful in many areas as well as a wonderful source of information with regard to service agencies, shopping, sights of interest, restaurants, etc.

Bryan made what could have been a very trying experience one that was enjoyable, and I would recommend him without qualification to anyone seeking property.

Always Willing to Go the Extra Step

Recently, my family purchased a vacation home in Santa Cruz, California. We were represented in this transaction by Bryan Speights. We were extremely pleased with his service and support throughout the entire sale and we would unconditionally recommend him as a Buyer's Agent.

What impressed us most about Mr. Speights was his energy, work ethic, commitment to us, and attention to detail.

Our sale was by no means a simple, quick transaction. Since we were unfamiliar with Santa Cruz, he had to prepare an extensive tour of the area and educate and convince us on the Santa Cruz market. He was well prepared and really streamlined our property search. When trying to plan our tour and coordinate with our busy schedule, he even offered to have his family watch my young children during our property visits. This was typical of Bryan, a person always willing to go the extra step.

After we located property, we needed assistance in completing our due diligence since we lived three hours away. Mr. Speights "stepped up to the plate" without hesitation and coordinated all of our inspections and research. He spent a considerable amount of time at the property and forwarded digital photos on a frequent basis.

He also carefully reviewed and organized the sales documentation. As a business attorney, I really appreciated his attention to detail and willingness to amend terms to conform to our needs.

Even after the sale was completed, Bryan has remained valuable and has assisted us in settling into our new house.

In the end, we were extremely fortunate to find an agent like Bryan who has committed to us and every aspect of the transaction.

The Outcome We'd Hoped For

Bryan Speights did a wonderful job in selling our property in Aptos.

From start to finish Bryan paid attention to every detail, effectively communicated with us at all times and made a potentially painful process painless. Bryan's advertising and marketing techniques were ideal for exposing our property to a multitude of buyers. He was tireless in his efforts to reach all potential buyers whether it was passing out flyers to different offices, calling agents who might have potential buyers, placing ads in local papers or coordinating the information for internet advertising.

When Bryan did locate a buyer he negotiated very effectively with the buyers' agent, coordinated all the inspections and assisted the other agent in every way possible. As a result, we obtained the price, the terms and the outcome of the sale of our property that we had hoped for.

We could not recommend a more experienced, knowledgeable, or professional agent than Bryan Speights.
