Brian Durkin recently just helped us buy our first home and I can honestly say we had a great experience. He is very nice and professional. He made us feel comfortable in this process, he was always available when we needed to talk to him. I would definitely recommend him to others!!!!!!!!!

Could not be happier with the way the house was presented for sale. We had two offers on the forth day and sold too the first family. the brochure that Brian put together was very well done and professional ,also the online presentation was great and had a large number of looks.


    As a first time renter, Brian helped me along the way and answered all questions I had and helped me understand the process. Despite looking for months, he was extremely patient. Needless to say, when I was ready to purchase, he again helped me out in every aspect of buying a home and helping me fully understand what to look for in not only a purchase, but maintenance concerns, and future sell-ability.

    Very pleased with our home buying experience! Brian knows what it takes to sell your property. He is an excellent listener and will tailor his service to your needs. Laura Ferrell
    Brian did an excellent job in showcasing the house. The angle of his pictures and the amount of natural light that he used accentuated the hardwood floors and the features of each room. He made good recommendations on items that we needed to take care of to sell the home quickly. He was a great adviser throughout the process. I believe that his marketing capabilities led to this house being sold in 10 days. Susan Barone
    Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Brian Durkin. I would highly recommend him to everyone. I was a first time buyers and was guided the whole way through this crazy process with such care and professionalism. Brian understood the importance of getting me my first house and followed up on ALL angles possible to help me obtain my first home. He kept me informed, educated me on the process, and continues to follow up with me. I can't thank him enough for all the help he provided for me. He gives 110%. I would use him again in a heart beat. If I could give more than five stars, I would, because Brian Durkin is truly a phenomenal real estate agent. He was very honest and truthful during the whole process. He has nothing but the clients interests in mind. Sheena Chesser
    It was great working with Brian. He was able to rent out my house in less than two weeks. He had many different ways of advertising, very knowledgeable, friendly, honest, and a hard worker. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Noah Carlson
    Brian is the overall top of the line agent. He was able to negotiate me a good deal for the property that I purchased. He was able to knock 8,000 dollars off of the original asking price. He introduced me to a fireman who was also a licensed home inspector. This guy spent over two hours going over a detail of the house. Brian Durkin is the best ever. Naomi Anthony
    Brian was a pleasure to work with when purchasing our new home. His willingness to assist in any way, including areas outside of his job scope show his passion for his work. Brian was in no rush to find the right home and in no way put any pressure on purchasing any of the numerous homes we visited. Keep up the good work! Kevin Nowoc
    If you are looking for some no nonsense realtor with all the knowledge needed from how much to rehab a property to going rate on rentals or re-sale value he is your man. Brian is efficient, fast and effective. He will submit any bid without any pressure to go higher or make you feel embarrassed. I have worked with over 10 realtors and have 6 properties and finally I found the best! You can't go wrong with this professional. He has helped me buy two homes and I expect he will help me purchase 4 more. Britta Pockrus Britta Pockrus

    Brian was on top of the process from beginning to end, and provided invaluable assistance and advice in getting the home ready to rent, identifying and qualifying potential renters and negotiating the lease. I recommend Brian 100%. Peter Freedman
